Ocean Grove House Rental Photos and Description

Fabulous Ocean Grove Holiday House with Garden, a short stroll from surf beach

Fairmont is a four bedroom, two bathroom haven set in a restful garden. Just a short stroll to the beach, you can hear the sounds of the surf from the house. The quiet court location and excellent fencing make Fairmont a safe option for young children and pets.

Fairmont sleeps ten people comfortably - no-one gets to sleep in a bunk or on a fold-out couch! You're welcome to book just the number of bedrooms needed for your group. A couple, for example, can book just one bedroom at a lower tariff and still enjoy exclusive use of Fairmont.

Our guests really appreciate the flexibility of the sleeping arrangements...Three bedrooms have king beds which split into long singles, where preferred. Three of the bedrooms are oversized, providing plenty of space.

All linen (including beach towels) is provided and your beds will be made up before your arrival, making it easy to simply unpack your bags and relax!

We genuinely care about your holiday experience and want to meet the needs of your group!

About JIll Kaufmann

This photo was taken in Varanassi - not Ocean Grove! However, there are two common themes in my life shown here - water and seagulls!

Growing up in Melbourne, our annual family holidays were always by the seaside. Ocean Grove was a favourite destination and I can remember making a promise to myself as a child that I would live here one day. This dream became reality in 1989 when I built - what was then - my small house in Bolton Court. Since then, there have been two extensions and a total refurbishment of this lovely home.

It is obvious to guests that I love gardening, especially using plants to provide a peaceful ambience for humans and safe habitat for birds and possums. The garden has been designed to temper the extremes of weather, providing a wind break and wonderful protection from summer heat.

I am a teacher (ethics, communication and shiatsu therapy), a counsellor and shiatsu therapist. Shiatsu is a wonderful Japanese massage modality, based on acupuncture (but no needles). Being Japanese, treatments are done on a futon on the floor and are gently intended to harmonize and energise your whole being. If you wish, you can book a shiatsu treatment during your stay.

Still living in Ocean Grove, I am absolutely delighted to be offering Fairmont's warm hospitality to her guests.

JIll Kaufmann purchased this house in 1989

Why JIll Kaufmann chose Ocean Grove

Ocean Grove has an 'energy' which is both deeply relaxing - the sea air - and yet invigorating. I worked in Geelong for several years and I felt very appreciative of being able to walk along the beach before and after work...living in Ocean Grove allows you to feel like you're on holidays all the time.

The Bellarine Peninsula is just lovely and each of the townships has a different mood - from historic Queenscliff to sleepy Indented Heads. Ocean Grove has great facilities, so there's no need to travel out of town to get what you want - food, activities, shopping, the beach etc.

What makes this house unique

Designed and built for me, Fairmont is seriously eco-friendly and designed with flexibility and comfort in mind. Bedrooms are spacious, the kitchen is well designed and equipped, furniture is comfortable and good quality, the bathrooms are spotless and have lovely garden views. The house has a very peaceful feel which impacts on those who stay. Windows are large and provide lovely views of the gardens and birds.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just had 5 days at Fairmont with our family of 10 including all from the age of 9 months to 72 years. Despite lousy weather over all but one day, this house and its configuration gave us all the space we wanted, allowing us to be together when we wanted to be and to have separate space when that was needed. Everything that we could have needed was provided. All of us had a great time and allowed us to enjoy each other's company over these few days.

Fairmont is located on the beautiful Bellarine Peninsula, just 90 minutes from Melbourne's CBD. Situated in a quiet Court, the holiday rental is only about a 700 metre stroll to the world famous Ocean Grove surf beach.

You might want to take a trip on the fabulous Blues Train...or listen to eclectic music at the Ocean Grove Chicken Shop!

There are walking trails galore, golf courses nearby, and the Queenscliff-Sorrento ferry and historic Queenscliff are just a few minutes’ drive away.

Depending on the time of year you holiday, you can enjoy one of the Peninsula's music and cultural festivals.

The district's wineries and boutique breweries produce a wonderful range of boutique refreshments and are well worth exploring.
