Pendene is a fabulous beach house sitting high in Ocean Grove. The 30 guest reviews to date speak volumes. The 5 star rating has been achieved through wonderful ocean views, a beautiful, safe, private garden, cleanliness, a well equipped kitchen and outdoor areas and very, very comfortable beds. The seven reclining lounge chairs might also add something.
Here are some more details.
From Pendene its an easy walk to the ocean beach and close to shops and facilities. It's ideal for family holidays, wedding accommodation, a get-together with friends, a golf weekend or just an escape for a few quiet days. It is safe, comfortable and secure with parking for a boat and two cars; well behaved pets that can respect and enjoy a truly extraordinary rear garden are very welcome
Inside offers more than photos can tell. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds offer high quality and comfort and on two levels there are seven recliner chairs and two lounge suites to ensure relaxation is not an optional extra.
The commanding views from Point Lonsdale to the Barwon Heads Bluff allow you to watch ships coming through the Heads and the rolling waves - from the Kitchen or the upper deck. Its an easy walk to the ocean beach and nearby coffee spot and a 5 minute drive to the patrolled main surf beach. This is an ideal seaside destination any time of the year.
The property has two levels with upper and lower outdoor living areas. The kitchen and the upper deck enjoy the ocean views while downstairs the undercover area looks out on a beautiful, mature north facing rear garden..... . The garden includes a unique board walk, an extraordinary collection of succulent and manicured grass more suited to a golf course. It is a quiet, secure and an attractive setting for children and adults and well behaved pets.
The property has five bedrooms, accommodating up to 8 people in comfort - no-one sleeps on a fold out couch, in a living room or in a bunk bed The beds are a critical part of your stay - many of our guests have commented on their exceptional comfort
Pendene will be spotlessly clean when you arrive. The beds have mattress protectors, doonas and pillows. Sheets, doona covers and pillow cases are available at an additional charge if required. We also take care of many of those annoying incidentals such as soaps, toilet paper, rubbish bags, tissues etc., etc.....This is particularly helpful if you are only staying for a weekend.
The bedrooms comprise one with King size bed, en suite and walk in robe; one with a Queen size bed, another with two King single beds and two bedrooms each with a King single bed. There is ample storage.
Pendene is set up to maximise your holiday enjoyment. A group of old school friends wanting to catch up for a weekend. A few couples getting together to explore the Bellarine. A couple of families sharing a beach holiday. This property is well suited for many needs.
All you need to do is unpack and put your feet up or head straight for the beach.
The kitchen is very well equipped - with up to date quality equipment, generous amount or crockery and cutlery and all the things that you might normally expect at home rather than a holiday house.
Overhead fans plus two split air conditioning systems plus gas heating provide ample heating and cooling no matter what season or weather.
The lifestyle is calm and private with a stunning outlook. The spacious north facing garden combines beautifully with upstairs kitchen and deck, both with gorgeous panoramic ocean views. The deck is set up for eight to dine or to just relax and watch the ocean.
Find a sunny nook in the private and sheltered garden or on the boardwalk in the back garden - a tribute to the seaside lifestyle. Read a book, have a picnic, relax on the couch and listen to music, watch a DVD or FOXTEL.
There are barbecues on both the upper deck and in the undercover outdoor living area downstairs; full outdoor settings provide comfortable use of each area.
Parking is plentiful - remote control access to undercover parking provides security, direct access to the house and privacy for two vehicles - any time and during any weather. There is even additional secure parking at the side for your boat or another vehicle.
In warm or cold weather Pendene is an oasis with specially weather-sealed windows, climate controlled heating and cooling systems upstairs and downstairs. Flyscreens ensure the evening sea breezes cool the house in summer. And, there are ceiling fans in all main upstairs rooms.
There are wide screen TVs upstairs and downstairs - to accommodate different needs within your group. There is comfortable seating upstairs and downstairs. Upstairs includes five recliner chairs to ensure you truly relax after days at the beach or exploring the beautiful Bellarine.
