Veronica Street, Inverloch - a serene cottage by the sea
About Chrissy Rainbow
My fondest memories are sharing summer holidays at Inverloch with my friends and family. So back in 2001, I bought this lovely little weather board home. Veronica Street home appealed to me, as it has heaps of character and being on corner block with a vegetable garden, and the beach is at the end of the street, who could say no. Inverloch is such a quaint beach town and being in Andersons n inlet and you are protected from the winds Since 2001, I have been sharing my home as a holiday let. I want everyone to experience Inverloch and its surrounding areas the way I enjoy it. Plenty of good food, beautiful beaches and lovely walks
Chrissy Rainbow purchased this House in 2001
Why Chrissy Rainbow chose Inverloch
How to get to Inverloch Inverloch is less than two hours from Melbourne. Travel along the South Gippsland Highway from Melbourne, turning onto Bass Highway to follow the road through Grantville, Bass, Kilcunda and Wonthaggi before reaching Inverloch. History of Inverloch - Ancient middens discovered in the area are testimony to the seafood diet of the Bunurong Aborigines who once occupied this stretch of the coast. The Bonkoolawools are also thought to have hunted in the region. - The first European to settle in the Inverloch area was Samuel Anderson, who, together with his brothers and Robert Massie, ran cattle and grew wheat in the area. - The inlet on which the town is situated on is named Anderson Inlet after Samuel Anderson. The town was first named Andersons Inlet and later renamed Inverloch after Loch Inver (Lake Entrance) in Scotland. - The Post Office opened on 1 September 1883 as Anderson's Inlet and was renamed Inverloch in 1889. - As the area developed Inverloch became a port for the shipment of black coal from Wonthaggi to Melbourne. - Australia's first dinosaur bone, the Cape Paterson Claw, was discovered near Inverloch in 1903. Today, the Dinosaur Dreaming fossil excavation at the Flat Rocks coastal site by Anderson's Inlet attracts both Australian and international visitors. Inverloch - The Town Today - Inverloch is a popular tourist destination, particularly for surfers, kitesurfers, windsurfers and fishers. - The town hosts a jazz festival each Labour Day long weekend in March. - Like most other Australian coastal towns Inverloch has a local surf lifesaving club. - It is constantly changing and at low tide its sandy bottom is exposed and many species of waterbirds banquet on the shores.

Old style, but neat, clean and tidy!
Great place to get away, neat and tidy accommodation and great distance to beach, shops, and bike/walking tracks. Would recommend the property.
A very pretty property with lovely old fashion feel. Very basic.
The property was nice looking and quite clean. Something left in the grill which we didn’t touch and not having a dishwasher the cutlery and plates not feeling to clean. We had no hot water either for about 12 hours of our stay.
Hot water capacity, please be mindful
It’s not cost effective to heat hot water all day, every day especially when the house isn’t being used. This means that the hot water tank is heated up overnight at off peak times.
It’s very important that you understand that If you take long hot water showers you could run out of hot water. The tank has 250 litres hot water capacity and is adequate for 6 people.
We absolutely loved our weekend at this property in Inverloch. It was just what we needed. The property was neat and clean and had a lovely old world charm to it. We came back rested and re charged. The walk to the town centre on the beach was perfect. Thank you, Chrissy!
Neat house with lots of character.
Comfy beds, and living area. Excellent location. Very small bathroom.
The house has very large bedrooms.
I sincerely apologise that the bathroom isn’t as large as many modern homes these days. It is well proportioned and is still functional.
A serene cottage by the sea
We were very blessed to stay in this tranquil seaside cottage full of old world charm. The house has everything you need for a perfect holiday, including being only seven minutes walking distance from the beautiful, dog-friendly surf beach of Inverloch. The bedrooms and lounge room are very spacious with high ceilings and fans. The bird life added extra delight and the koala in the front tree added even more to an already incredible habitat! The village of Inverloch is lovely and the locals are very friendly. We will definitely be back!
