Description

3 bed Bungalow very close to the beaches at Cape Paterson, only 140km from Melbourne CBD. < 2hr

Three bedrooms sleeps 8. Two queen beds and two double bunks. Ideal for large families and/or two families. Great party house. We have been letting the house since 2005, with many regular customers who love the house as much as we do.

One street back from Cape's main beaches. Easy walks to First Surf 10 mins and the family friendly Bay Beach 5 mins. Both have lifesaving clubs and are patrolled on weekends late November to Easter. Then there's Second Surf another 10-15 mins walk west. Great for surfers and body boarders with beautiful quiet and secluded sunsets.

Less than 2 mins stroll to cafe, milk bar and Cape Tavern, which was under new ownership in 2013 with much improved food and range of beverages.

Cape has that relaxed, no rush feel, even in the busy times. The hidden gem of Gippsland.

Lots to do.....or not.....

Swimming - patrolled beaches over summer. Cape is a bit cooler than Melbourne being on the coast so the summer temperatures tend to be just right.

Surfing - good spots at Cape on west and east winds.

Fishing - great surf/beach fishing as well as boat ramp.

Snorkelling and diving - great off the local beaches and Bunurong Marine Park.

Cycling - the Bunnurong Coastal Road is one of the most spectacular rides in Gippsland. The Bass Coast Rail Trail runs from Wonthaggi to Anderson roundabout via Kilcunda. Take the dedicated bike lane from Cape to Wonthaggi 8 km then 17 km on the rail trail over the trestle bridge to Killy and the great Cafe and Pub. Other rail trails close by in Gippsland. The South Gippsland ride is splendid.

Bushwalking - great tracks all year around. Cape foreshore bush tracks out the front door. Walk or run. Beach walk to Harmers Haven and the Wonthaggi heathlands.

Read - library of books, plenty of good stuff to read, to suit all tastes

Peace - sleep, chill out, Cape is a great place to get off the rat race merry go round. Some our regulars go down to Cape for quiet work time, clear of the madness and distractions of the big city.

Wildlife - in 2012 an echinda was spotted in the garden, the wattles nested in the back yard, on top of heaps of other birdlife including black cockatoos. We have seen blue tongue lizards in the back yard. There are wild roos and wallabies on the Bunurong road, just before Kildunda and at Venus Bay. Womabats are less common, but we do see them occasionally. We once saw humpback whales off Twin Reef.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love Fitzgerald! We have stayed at Fitzgerald several times over the past few years and we love it's traditional beach house feel. An older style house, it is comfortable, warm, and caters well to the needs of a family. The kitchen is very well equipped for cooking up a feast and the sun streaming in the windows of the family room makes it a great place to settle in with a good book. Backyard is flat lawn, perfect for younger children to play. Short walk to beach, general store and the pub. Great place for a weekend escape!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had a very pleasant stay at the Fitzgerald and would reccommend it to others unreservedly. The new extension at the back of the house was very comfortable and allowed lots of morning sun in. Loved the painting! We especially liked the personal touch of the library and would have liked to have stayed longer to listen to more of the CD collection. It's also good value for money and it's close to the beach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fitzgerald house is lovely, lightfilled and comfortable, perfect for a family.Being a 5 min walk to the beach is also a big bonus. The house has been decorated in a wonderful way and our children adore being there.The quietness is so peaceful and to be able to sit out on the deck and soak up the sun in tranquility is very special.
