This lovely brick house is so close to the beach you can almost smell the saltwater. Just stroll past two houses and cross the road to the beautiful bay beach.

The 3 bedroom house is set up to be a great entertainer. The open plan dining and lounge area

(with Foxtel) works well with the great size kitchen which is well equipped for all your cooking and entertaining needs.

The bathrooms have been renovated as well.

The whole yard is fully fenced, so there is plenty of privacy and plenty of room for the kids to run. Out the back is a tranquil outdoor entertaining area. Under the large sail is the outdoor setting big enough to seat the whole family plus more.

Catch the morning sun having your coffee and reading the paper on the Jack & Jill seat. In the afternoon relax and read a book (from the many inhouse) on the day bed under the back verandah.

The house is set up with different sitting areas so you can catch the sun or play it safe in the shade. A large 6 burner bbq is ready for use all year round.

The massive garage is set up like a kids / teenagers retreat area. Also great for those adults that like a bit of competition with each other. It has a dining table & chairs to play those board games on. 80 cm TV with built-in DVD Player, couches, dart board, air hockey table and table tennis table and pool table. So if the weather isn't so good, the kids can go to their space and the parents are left in peace inside. There is also a basket ball hoop in the drive to keep them active outside too, plus other outside games.

The main bedroom has a queen size bed with a good size ensuite plus separate walk-in-robe. It has an 80cm Plasma TV with a built-in DVD player.

Bedroom 2 has a queen size bed and the 3rd bedroom has a double bed with a single bed bunk on top. Both bedrooms 2 & 3 have built-in wardrobes.

Porta Cot and High Chair are provided.

Altogether the house sleeps 7.

Please note, this is NOT a party house, so please be mindful of our neighbours.

A Walk in the National Park, Swim, Winery, Coffee ??

The choices of what to do are endless.

Take a short walk past the Blairgowrie Marina up to the many cafes, shops and restaurants that Blairgowrie is known for.

A five minute walk up the road towards the back beach is the famous "Koonya General Store" where you can get your morning paper and a fresh coffee for the stroll home.

A couple of minutes by car and you are in the main street of Sorrento, where you have so much to choose from. Have a coffee or some lunch, maybe dinner and a movie. Otherwise just wear yourself out with the endless shops.

Being situated in the narrowest part of the Peninsula you have a choice of bay beach or ocean beach.

Walk up Huges road to the Koonya Ocean Beach. This is also the entrance to the National Park. The beautiful walking tracks in the National Park are there for you to explore the wonderful coastline that is " The Peninsula ".

Take in one of the many wonderful wineries for a day trip of tastings or take the Sorrento Ferry for a trip to Queenslcliffe for lunch.

Weekend Getaway or Family Holiday

This house suits a quiet weekend for two.

2 or 3 couples for a weekend get together. The girls can hit the shops or pamper themselves with a massage or facial while the guys can have a game of golf. Or spend the day at the beach. Everyone's happy!

Great for a family or two, the kids can bunk in together.

There are plenty of games, movies and books for all ages.

We aim to make your holiday or weekend away one to remember and we love seeing people come to stay again and again.

2 night minimum stay on normal weekends (Fri & Sat)

3 night minimum stay on long weekends (except Easter & Melbourne Cup is 4 nights)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great stay Staying here has become family tradition for us- taking four children (3 teenagers) means having the shed converted into a living/sleeping space is just perfect. They can escape when they need to. Bathrooms are well renovated, heating is great and the kitchen is incredibly well appointed with appliances and utensils. Fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This house is a delight. We had a fabulous week walking to the beach, showering in the outdoor garden and playing billiards as the sun set. The kids were constantly entertained and had everything they needed to feel right at home. This was our second stay at By the Bay and won't be our last. Thanks Jo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Faultless This holiday house has everything you could ever need or want to make your stay so easy and enjoyable. The kids games room provided a great retreat for our teenage daughter and her friends. I personally loved spending time on the sun lounges in the front garden. Ideally located on the border of Blairgowrie and Sorrento, with easy access to all our favourite beaches, including a new find just a few hundred metres from the front door (white cliffs). The house was exceptionally clean and Jo (owner) was a delight to deal with. We have rented several houses in Blairgowrie over the years, but this one is the stand out. Great value for money. Thanks for a great holiday Jo :)
