Modern Luxury Two Story House With Two Living Spaces & 4 Bedrooms
About Fleur Leslie
My husband Mike & I manage a small fleet of 10 properties through our business Dufflebird. It all began with Liptrap Loft our handmade shack thats one-of-a-kind. We found the type of guests who are attracted to quirky and unique properties to be open minded, grateful types that are an absolute delight to host. The success and popularity of the place was pleasantly addictive and we have since adopted an eclectic group of holiday homes. Places that we think activate the energizing emotions of travel, and have enough warmth, charm, and quirky playfulness to inspire a wry smile. All properties are within 2.5 hours of Melbourne in various parts of Victoria. They all allow well behaved dogs & 7 allow dogs inside. 3 properties belong to us and the other 7 we manage for friends.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 30 days before arrival date.
A wonderful short break in a fabulous property with fantastic views.
Thanks for staying Michelle and we hope you come back again. It was an wonderful experience our end hosting your stay, Easy upbeat communication and the house was left in excellent condition . We would recommend you to other hosts without hesitation.
The home is as good as it looks in the photos
An impressive home to enjoy an extended family weekend away. The large living, kitchen and deck area were in constant use. It was pristine when we arrived. Also loved the special touches, good supply of coffe beans, library of cooking books to browse, plentiful wood supply and welcoming chocolates and wine. A very quiet spot to relax and spread ourselves out. Highly recommend it as a special place to enjoy.
Thank you very much Vicki for your positive words. I'm glad you think the home is as good as it looks in the photos. We can't see any upside in over promising and really try to be accurate in our listings about what's on offer. I too really like how big the home is and how a family or bigger group can really spread out and unfurl. We really hope you come back soon.
Magnificent house and Surroundings
This was our second visit to shearwater both times have been outstanding we arrived to very clean and well appointed house, very toddler friendly with a High chair, baby gate at the top of the stairs and plenty of toys to keep them busy.
During the day we explored the local towns, beaches, waterfalls and Wilson’s prom so much to see and do, we relaxed at night by the wood heater watching the weather roll in the views from the house are fantastic, one of our favourite holiday houses we will be sure to return!
Thank you Phillip for coming back to Shearwater for a second stay. We so enjoy having guests like you, who really love the property and region and treat the property and us with such respect. Our caretaker Melissa said the place was left in wonderful shape. You are welcome back anytime and we really hope to see you all again soon.
Excellent, very comfortable and spacious house. Highly recommended. Five stars
We enjoyed our stay at Shearwater. The house was very clean, well furnished and very comfortable. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. There was a generous amount of non-perishable items in the pantry. There were lots of toys to amuse our 3 year old grandson, a very good selection of books, journals, DVDs and board games for the adults. From the main living room windows there is a long view over Waratah Bay towards the peaks of Wilsons Promontory. The is a smallish beach about a km from the house, but the best beach is at Waratah Bay. Fleur is a very warm and friendly person. She responded to our emails and messages promptly and helpfully. We can highly recommend Shearwater
Thanks Graeme, this is the second time and second property that we been lucky enough to host you and your family. On both occasions you were exemplary. It was an absolute pleasure having you stay and you are very welcome back anytime. Regards Fleur
Beautiful & spacious home in gorgeous location
Our family of 4 stayed here for 5 nights in January. Shearwater has everything you need - a real home away from home!
The house is very well equipped & zoned well for family living. It is beautifully decorated & extremely comfortable. The local beaches are stunning & perfect for a relaxing swim. Will definitely be coming back here - highly recommend!
Great Family Holiday
Shearwater is a lovely spacious house with room for all the family. Upstairs the main bedroom has views of the Prom and a spacious ensuite and robe. A second double bedroom is upstairs and powder room and also the large family/dining/kitchen equipped with a large range of appliances and equipment for a holiday rental, and a deck with the same Prom views. Downstairs two further bedrooms (one a double) share a bathroom and there is a second lounge area and full laundry. Fleur was very helpful answering any queries that we had and providing advice about local spots. Shearwater House is not on the beach but there is a walking track near the house which provides a short cut to North Walkerville beach. Even so, the walk is down a hill (and back up on the return) and so it is better to drive. From Walkerville North you can easily walk around either the walking track or via the beach to South Walkerville which is a pretty spot for swimming. We also walked in the other direction to Waratah Bay which was about an hour's walk each way along the beach. By car it is a 20 minute drive to Waratah Bay or to Sandy Point. The Prom entrance is 30 minutes and a further 30 to Tidal River. We all loved visiting each of these areas and also the Waratah Hills Winery and Fish Creek. Although everything starts with a car ride, there is plenty to do to enjoy a week at Shearwater. The house was spotless and linens clean and crisp. Overall a lovely holiday suitable for families with children of any age.
