Opening on to the wetlands reserve with plenty of open areas for kids and pets and less than a kilometer from the beach this is a holiday you won’t forget
For adults; spend your days at the beach, numerous local wineries and the cider house or enjoying the heart of Ocean Grove and other vibrant nearby towns including Point Lonsdale, Queenscliffe and Barwon Heads. At night relax to the sounds of water birds and frogs and have a fire in the brazier overlooking the wetlands and listening to the crash of the surf, or walk to the pub up the road for dinner and drinks. Wind down with a soak in the deep spa bath or nap in the hammock on the back porch.
For families; entertaining the kids is easy The back fence opens onto the wetlands reserve offering acres of green space to roam and explore and even feed the ducks With a large open area for sports with houses excluding access to the road for most of the area which has a very private feel. If that’s not enough just a 300m walk up the road is a large sporting oval. During the day it is a short walk to the beach and a short drive to the local water park, a must see Other activities include guided tours of the Queenscliffe fort and learn to surf lessons held regularly thought the warmer months in Ocean Grove. The local pub has a huge play area for kids including an in ground trampoline and is only a short 800m walk or, if you prefer, use the barbecue in the back yard and enjoy the view.
Bring the fur family too
We welcome well mannered dogs and are happy to provide dog beds and bowls. We are within a short walk of the massive off-lead dog beach some seasonal restrictions apply. While the property is fenced the back fence is only half height to allow you to take in the view so it is not ideal for escape artists.
