A large modern well equipped Beach house within walking distance to the Beach and shops ,Air conditioned and a Slow combustion fire.

Venus Bay is a delightful coastal resort bordered on one side by the Bass Strait and on the other by Anderson Inlet. The surf beach closest to the house is patrolled and there is mile after mile of glorious white sandy beaches with boating and fishing popular on the Inlet.

Wilsons Promontory National Park is just under an hours' drive away whilst Cape Liptrap National Park is on your doorstep.

The village of Venus Bay includes a well equiped general store, several take-ways/restaurants (licenced) and local speciality stores.

At dusk drive to the Boat Ramp on Outlook Drive (5 minutes) and see the Kangaroos feeding, if you keep your eyes open you may see a wombat and there are rabbits a plenty.

Once it is dark take a short walk outside and look upwards to see more stars than you can count.

Tarwin Lower, a few kilometres away, has a thriving local pub (which offers free transport to and from Venus Bay on request). As well as local wineries to visit nearby are the rural towns of Inverloch, Wonthaggi and Leongatha which are close at hand offering a variety of attractions.(Shopping !!!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great House in a great location. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house in Venus Bay, 5m walk to the town and beach and not far from plenty of great fishing spots. House is clean and has everything you need. Also highly recommended for those with dogs, plenty of space for them to spread their legs in the front and back. Will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Venus Bay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent property Stayed over a long weekend wit 2 families that varied in age. It was a great setup with the split level. Deck was great to just chill out and get some sun and to relax. There is both split sys and wood fire which was great over the chilly time. Large front yard to kick a ball for the kids. You can even walk to the beach, it's not too far. Highly recommended
