About the House

This 2 bedroom family and pet friendly home is a simple timber beach house on a private dead end road facing directly onto the Cape Liptrap Coastal reserve.

Outdoor deck facing the nature reserve with views of Anderson Inlet is fully covered and boasts small dining table, lounge swing and a relaxed feel to enjoy late summer evenings please remember to cover furniture after use to protect from the weather.

The comfortable open plan living area has air-conditioning , ceiling fans and plenty of room for everyone to relax and find their own space to escape.

Relax with a book, let the environment spark your creative interest or walk 1 km through the nature reserve to the no 5 beach.

The house is set up for up to 4 adults and 2 children but many configurations can be accommodated if you're flexible with sleeping arrangements and there is a sofa bed that can accommodate an extra pair of sleepers.

We are a pet friendly house and our two dogs visit regularly. We have provided a dyson hand held vacuum to help you keep control of animal hair and ask that pets are not allowed on the furniture. Please note that currently the fencing is not totally secure, our neighbourhood wombats like to burrow under the fences so it's a constant battle. We are making an effort to secure all the fencing but this is taking some time. We will update our listing once we can guarantee secure fencing. Please also note that due to renovations, there is currently not a wood heater in the house. This means that currently there is no heating available, only cooling. We hope to have a new wood heater installed early in 2018.

Bed configuration;

Bedroom 1: Queen bed with electric blanket and ceiling fan.

Bedroom 2: Double bed with electric blanket and one set of bunk beds.

Living Room: Sofa bed

Cot also available but please ask in advance as it is kept stored when not in use.

Small, fully equipped kitchen with everything you need to prepare and feed your people. A few pantry basics makes catering at your holiday break, simple and enjoyable. The dining table comfortably seats 8 and the outdoor dining table comfortably seats 6. There is an extra hexagonal outdoor table and four extra chairs under the front deck, feel free to use this for larger outdoor dining. There is also a comfortable lounge swing on the back deck. Please ensure all outdoor furniture is completely covered with the covers provided to protect them from the powerful Venus Bay weather.

Off street parking for at least 3 vehicles. Please always park on the property as emergency services need 24/7 access to the reserve at the end of the road. If you're in their way we can't guarantee the state of your car

Guests are asked to provide their own linen sheets, doona covers, pillowcases, tea towels, beach towels, bath mats and bath towels Comfy beds, fluffy quilts and soft pillows are provided.

The Area:

Venus Bay is a small coastal town located 165km from Melbourne. It is one of Victoria's worst kept holiday secrets, guaranteed if you mention you're visiting Venus Bay you'll know someone who loves it.

The town is nestled into the sand dunes on a narrow peninsula of land bordered on one side by the ocean beaches of Bass Strait and on the other by the calm waters of Anderson Inlet.

The golden sandy beaches stretch for 22km and include 5 magnificent surf beaches. Beach number 1 is patrolled by surf lifesavers during the summer months. The huge beaches are great for surfing, ocean fishing, swimming, walking, windsurfing, body surfing and beachcombing.

Explore the rugged natural beauty of Venus Bay with a bushwalk in Cape Liptrap Coastal Park to spot the wildlife and admire the striking scenery. Visit Cape Liptrap Lighthouse or try some of the boating experiences.

The Tarwin River flows into Venus Bay providing a tidal river which is perfect for river and estuary fishing. Fishing platforms along the bank provide excellent access to the river for anglers. Alternatively, cycle the bike path from Venus Bay to Tarwin Lower or just stroll along the boardwalk which follows Tarwin River.

Anderson's Inlet is the state's longest sand spit. Stroll along the 2km walking path, discover the rich bird life in the wetlands and mangroves or try fishing in the Inlet's sheltered waters.

Venus Bay is also central to many natural attractions in the South Gippsland area, situated midway between Wilsons Promontory National Park and Philip Island.

Venus Bay has a general store, several cafes/takeaway's, surf and fishing shop and a number of speciality shops. Tarwin Lower, another 5kms out of town has a great IGA with traditional butcher, post office and a great pub that serves yummy meals year round and often has live music and other entertainment.

Make sure you check out which farmers markets are operating when you come for your stay. Koonwarra and Inverloch are particularly worth a look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful views and peaceful retreat Dacha Kincora is one of those gem houses that you're reluctant to review, in case it gets booked out when you want it! We love this place. The back faces the trees and the reserve. You may see walkers come past, but mainly you get to gaze out the lounge, dining and kitchen windows to the birds, trees and sky. There's a deck and a love seat, but as we've been in winter that hasn't been utilised much! We were initially worried about heat, but the free standing wood-fired heater keeps the living areas toasty, and warms the bedrooms pretty well too. The bed in the master room also has electric blankets to turn on just before bed(and I think in the other room as well). The kitchen has everything you need in terms of utensils, crockery and pans. Whether cooking on the gas oven/stovetop or doing the dishes you can look out at the view. The lounge is also great for reading or watching some of your fave series on netflix. If you're visiting Venus Bay for the first time be sure to check out the Community Centre - a great place for a chat and an op shop. They also have free bicycles for loan. There's also great walking and fishing, and of course the beach!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful place to relax We have been to Dacha Kincora twice now and both times we found it a wonderful place to chill, walk and relax. It is minimalist but comfortable, quiet but close to all amenities. Sitting inside or outside as night falls is our idea of heaven; roos, birds and sunsets. Our favourite beach getaway!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent place for visiting the Wilson Prom The cottage is everything you need to enjoy the beautiful areas of the Wilson Prom and its coasts. The cottage is essential but has everything, tidy and clean. Smart stay and good flexibility for check ins and check outs.
