Venus Bay is a quiet seaside village an easy 2 hour 150kms drive from Melbourne through the beautiful Gippsland countryside. It is also half way between Philip Island 45 minutes away and Wilson's Promontory 45 minutes away two of Victoria's most popular tourist attractions.

The village is famous for its surf beach which stretches for about 30 kms from Cape Liptrap to Point Smythe. The area is popular for surfing, fishing, walking and cycling and is full of wildlife including kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, echidnas, microbats and a plethora of birdlife.

The Venus Bay shops are a 5 minute drive away and include a general store/mini supermarket, pharmacy, a pizza shop, ice cream shop, gift shop, cafes and restaurant/bar that has live music most Friday evenings. Tarwin Lower has a well equipped Supermarket, hotel and cafe and is a 5 minute drive.

The closest main town is Inverloch a 20 minute drive away. This has larger supermarket and many shops, numerous markets and restaurants.

The house is a 10-15 minute walk to the beach and a 5-10 minutes walk to the inlet flats where the kangaroos graze every day and frequent in the evenings. We have a wombat that lives here and many beautiful birds: parrots, cockatoos, galahs, wrens and the butcher birds and magpies are happy to be hand fed they love mince meat. On a clear night, once the sun sets, the star show comes out as you relax on the deck whilst listening to the gentle sounds of the surf in the background.

Venus Bay is the place to go for a beautiful natural environment and peace and quiet and to enjoy Australia's beautiful wildlife up close. Beautiful ocean beaches, numerous National Parks, Inlets, fishing, scenic drives, fabulous local restaurants, cook up a storm in the well equipped kitchen or just relax

Come and see for yourself why Venus Bay is one of Victoria's best kept secrets

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4 Stars We had a wonderful weekend. The houses location along with the amazing hot days we had made for wonderful days down at the beach a great sun downers outside on the veranda. The kitchen is well equipped and the house well stocked. We had a wonderful time. Two items that we found needed to be changed - firstly the BBQ has almost had it's day and second the shower curtain in the downstairs barthroom needs to be replaced as it is full algae

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Place to stay Our accommodation at The Pickled Pipi was nothing less than amazing. We had a very relaxing and peaceful time. We could not have wished for a better place to rent for our holiday. There was everything that you could have ever wanted at the Pickled Pipi, the owners had supplied everything we needed, not only in the kitchen but also supplied loads of board games and DVD'S. There was also Plenty of room for yourself, and heaps of space for the whole family, Yes and including the mother in-law (Sorry Mum)!! We would have stayed longer if we had have known that it was just like being at home. We loved the fact that we did not need to bring anything but our food, linen and towels, the beach just a short walk and there were plenty of places to sit and read. This is a must stay accommodation at Venus Bay make sure you try this home you won't be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's got everything Sorry this review is a little overdue, but we had a fantastic stay at the Pipi this Christmas just gone. Our extended family were able to stay all together in comfort without feeling like we were on top of each other. The kids hung out upstairs playing with an endless supply of games and puzzles while they weren't exploring the yard looking for signs of the resident wombats or playing hide and seek. The open plan family/dining room was an excellent space to relax and share a meal together, especially Christmas Day when it was way too hot to sit outside and the aircon was more than adequate to keep us all cool. The deck is enormous and was a great place to enjoy breakfast together and sundowners in the evenings. We all loved the beaches which are an within easy walking distance and were great for the whole family and a hit for the cousins who all got to test out their new boogie boards from Santa. The kitchen has everything, in fact there seemed to be two of everything and a bountiful supply of herbs and spices and a massive amount of bench space, and even though there were too many cooks, there was more than enough room to accomodate us all. The BBQ did a great job with the prawns and butterfly lamb on Christmas Day and numerous other dinners throughout our stay. We enjoyed a truly memorable holiday together which will never be forgotten. We'd love to return in winter and get the fire going

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfectly Peaceful! We really enjoyed our stay at the Pickled Pipi! It was lovely to escape from the world and enjoy our time in Venus Bay. The house itself is great, very spacious and very well fitted out. The kitchen is absolutely lovely, and the small extras like having plenty of staples (jam, sauce etc. - stuff you don't want to have to buy on holiday!) in the cupboard were really lovely. The only slight downside (which is why we have given 4 stars) was that both of the queen beds in the downstairs bedrooms were VERY uncomfortable - they could both definitely use an urgent update! All other beds were great - just those two. Also, be aware that there is only 1 bathroom, not a problem if you know and plan for it - but with 8 of us sharing it was a bit of a juggling act. Overall though, I would definitely recommend the Pickled Pipi, and we will definitely back - especially if those downstairs beds are updated!
