I am a graphic designer and my husband, Alessandro, is a website developer. We've been self-employed since 2001. About seven years ago, we traded the days that were mostly spent 12 inches from a computer screen to running our own gardening business. It was a pretty big leap – and we know it may seem weird – but we are happier than ever connecting to the land and breathing in the fresh air. Throughout the years we have forged some pretty wonderful relationships with our clients. Many of them have handed over their keys and entrusted us with their valuable homes that they have so lovingly prepared. We value this trust immensely and do everything we can to continue to earn it. As hard workers ourselves, we fully appreciate the concept of a holiday. Many times they only happen once a year, if we are lucky. So whether we are renting a holiday home for our clients, or booking one for ourselves, two words fit very nicely into our philosophy – 'kindness' and 'respect'. We feel that if every situation is approached with these two principles in mind, well, the rest just falls into place.

Great house with everything you need!
Great house with plenty of space. The fire kept the house very warm on the cold evenings. Plenty of beach and coastal walks in the area. Lovely part of Victoria!
Thank you Clare, so glad you had a lovely time! We loved having you stay and hope to have you back!
Very clean, well equipped and beautiful home. We had a fantastic weekend. Would stay again.
So glad you had a wonderful time. We also loved having you as our guests and we hope to have you stay again in the future!
This property was perfect in every way. Clean, comfortable and with everything you could possibly need including a fridge and pantry full of staples.
The house was beautifully styled and the fresh native flowers everywhere were a fantastic touch. It was homely and comfortable and very relaxing. Plenty of space for us (2 adults and three teenagers). The free WiFi kept the kids entertained - the fire kept the dog sleepy and happy!
The area is gorgeous - peaceful and relaxing at this time of year. Long walks along empty beaches... the small centre of Venus bay caters for most requirements.
All messages and queries were dealt with almost immediately by Jeanine who could not have been more friendly.
Seriously, we have stayed in many holiday houses all over the world and this was by far the best experience. Can’t wait to visit again.
Thank you so much Rachel! We are so glad you and your family had such a wonderful holiday and that the house was perfect for you! Likewise, you were such lovely and appreciative guests we could only wish for your return. We definitely hope to have you and your family back one day. The pleasure was really all ours. :))
A travellers haven
Loved this property at Venus Bay. Beds were compfy. Beautifully furnished with an efficient wood burner also a well stocked pantry and first class cookery utensils, glasses etc catering for travellers every need. Jeanine was very supportive and helpful which made our moving in and out of the home seamless and unstressful. Thank you our family members had fun.
Thank you! And you were 100% wonderful as well. Thank you! :)
Had a great stay!
Had a great stay at Villa Aprilla... Janine was a pleasure to deal with. House was very cosy with plenty of nice touches. Loved the deck! Master+ensuite was great (though we had to isolate it's external entrance doors to stop it becoming a thoroughfare). Location tranquil. Kitchen and other facilities fine. Decent onsite parking for two vehicles. Oh, and the Bali-style outdoor shower (for use after the beach) was great! Place is fully fenced, though any *athletic* dog could clear them if keen. That they openly share the Optus internet/wifi is a nice touch instead of hiding it away. Also pretty decent Blueray collection - various classics/favs (though we'd seen most of them ;) ). Telstra mobile reception fine - others may have difficulty.
We'll be back! :)
Thank you Stuart! So glad you enjoyed your stay and we absolutely look forward to having you back. :))
