You will find 4 comfortable bedrooms; The master bedroom comprises a queen bed, television, sliding glass door to the garden and an ensuite with a shower over lovely deep bath. Second guest room also houses a queen bed and large private window. Two further bedrooms comprise of one with a double bed and the other holding two singles plus trundle. The shower and second toilet are close by. All bedrooms have reading lamps and oil heaters are available to keep you cosy.
We are a dog friendly property, and the house has two good sized, fenced yards, a large dog basket and plenty of dog bowls. Sleeping inside can be arranged by negotiation with the owner. Two minutes away is the famous ‘Dogs Beach’ where dogs roam free all year round.
The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of bench space. The dining table overlooks a large picture window facing the “Magic Faraway Tree” and is a great place to share a meal. You will find a well stocked pantry and enough crockery and cutlery to cater for a full house.
You can watch ships passing through the narrow entrance to Port Phillip Bay known as The Rip from the beach or on the long jetty below Point Lonsdale lighthouse. You can swim or snorkel at Springs Beach or you can get comfortable at one of the coffee shops across the road. Drop into the supermarket, head home for an outdoor shower and then relax on the couches
