About Catherine Bateman
I'm a teacher at TAFE in Melbourne and I love Venus Bay. I have horses and dogs and like to do things like tinker with my house. I spend as much time in Venus Bay as I can and when I'm not there I rent it to likeminded people. By likeminded I mean, dog lovers, people who enjoy the outdoors and quirky things.
Catherine Bateman purchased this House in 2015
Why Catherine Bateman chose Venus Bay
Dacha Kincora was the first house the estate agent showed me when I was looking in Venus Bay and it felt like he had read my mind. It was love at first sight. It's an odd house, handmade by the original owners and it's full of quirks and oddities. I'm renovating it slowly so there's always something changing.

A peaceful getaway with everything you could need
Awesome bird life and great views over the inlet
We loved our time at Dacha Kincora just perfect for that little getaway for relaxation. A 10 minute walk down the coastal path your on the beach or chill out at the cottage looking over the beautiful views of the reserve. All secure for our Labrador who loved running around the land at the cottage. Definitely a place on our favourite list!
Everything you need to relax
We loved every moment of our stay at Dacha Kincora. The house is has everything you need but feels different enough from home to know that you are on holiday. With views and access to the public reserve you feel one with the beautiful nature that surrounds the house. A chorus of bird noises sings from dusk til dawn.
Will definitely be keeping this place in mind for future holidays.
Very relaxing stay. Beautiful position.
Great position overlooking Anderson’s inlet. Very relaxing rear decking area and swing seat. Easy walk through nature reserve to number 5 beach. House itself was clean and tidy and has everything required. Loved the expansive glass areas to enjoy the view at the rear. We will be back.
Relaxing, casual, comfy cottage
This is such a lovely little cottage to have a few days rest and relaxation at. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed. We saw a family of kangaroos early one morning meters from the back deck, magical. Catherine was excellent to deal with. Overall a fantastic experience.
A cozy cottage tucked away behind the sand dunes
Dacha Kincora was the perfect destination for our short winter get-away. My sister and niece were visiting from Germany and we only had three nights to spare. The cottage is only 10 minutes walk from the beach along a sandy bush track, so we enjoyed beach walks and a magnificent sunset.
The cottage has all the facilities you would expect but retains a quirky and very individual charm.
If you visit in the cooler months, the little wood heater is amazingly efficient. If set up properly it keeps the whole cottage warm.
Given our brief stay, the bed linen option (extra cost) was most welcome.
Highly recommended - and I think a Spring or Autumn visit should be on my agenda.
