Rascal beach house was completed in October 2011 and is set in the middle of the 1st estate on the beach side of the main road in what is locally known as the Planets estate. It is an easy walk to the shops and entrance to the foreshore reserve which has both car and pedestrian access to the patrolled pristine waters of beach 1. We fell in love with Venus Bay and built our beach house for our family vacations so we could enjoy its superb beaches, great fishing, surf for the kids and being able to just relax in the peace and quiet of one of Victoria's best kept secrets.
No longer does staying at a beach house in Venus Bay have to mean being cramped and going without, whether your looking for an intimate getaway or family holiday we have it covered for you. We are able to set the home up as required to suit you and the number of guests and make your stay a comfortable and memorable one. All of our beds are superbly comfortable offering quality latex mattresses with a medium feel. As our 100% positive guest reviews show we aim to please and offer an easy relaxing place to stay with everything you could possibly need rain, hail, or hopefully sunshine.
Our beach house is more than double the size of the average property in Venus Bay and is set on 670m2. The home offers a total of 21 squares of indoor and outdoor living and was designed for all the family to enjoy.
