Avonlee by the Sea :)

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

If you want something that is practically ocean front without the price tag, then this is the place for you.

Avonlee is a comfortable fully self contained two bedroom brick and tile home with ocean views, Foxtel, Flat Screen Full HD T.V.

Don't bother packing the kids and esky in the car, just grab the kids, put the esky, rods, beer etc in the wheelbarrow and walk over to the beach, it is just a 30 second walk.The bay fishes well for whiting, herring, flounder, squid and various other species. A bicycle path runs past the house and follows the beach all the way to town and beyond.

Avonlee is just a short 3 minute drive or 15 minute walk from the town centre, the famous Busselton Jetty and the Underwater Observatory. It is equally close to the Port Geographe Marina where you will find top class boat launching facilities.

We also have a family of resident possums -usually in the tree above the outdoor setting in the backyard. If the kids go out at night with a torch they may be able to spot them feeding in the peppermint tree.

Local Atrractions

The picturesque town of Busselton is a top tourist town and has something for everyone. Over 30 km of white sandy beaches, stretching endlessly in both directions which is great for windsurfers, water skiers, fishing, snorkelling and diving. The dive wreck HMAS Swan sits in the protected waters of Geographe Bay(Dunsborough) making it 'diveable' almost 10 months of the year. The famous Busselton Jetty, the longest wooden jetty in the southern hemisphere, stretches almost 2km out over the beautiful blue water of Geographe Bay, with its Underwater Observatory which descends 8m to the seabed is a definite must see. There are excellent Cafes, Restaurants, Art & Craft Galleries, Sporting/Family Entertainment facilities and Historical Attractions. Busselton makes an excellent base from which to explore the South West Region with Dunsborough, Margaret River Wine Region and Augusta close by.

Great family holiday stay

  • 5 of 5

We love Avonlee by the sea. We enjoyed our second stay this year and love how close it is to the beach. Our family thoroughly enjoy our trips to Avonlee. Lovely clean, neat and tidy place. We'll be back again.

Easily exceeded all expectations.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 2 nights in winter with 4 adults. Greeted with fresh bread and chardonnay. House was exceptionally equipped and comfortable. Only minor criticism is no mirror in bedrooms and house number missing not displayed. Cannot recommend highly enough..genuine ten out of ten.

Great location but average accomodation

  • 3 of 5

Great location next to the beach and close to Busselton!, however quite a few spiders in and around the house (more than you'd expect) and a weird smell of sewerage outside the house.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Fiona...glad you enjoyed Avonlee's is in a lovely quiet spot The strange smell outside the house is from the bore water...a common occurrence in Busselton due to a certain bacteria in the ground water...unfortunately nothing we can do to rectify this...we do however have the bore timer on early in the morning hoping watering is done well before most guests start their day. Spiders are taken care of when seen/needed...sorry if you encountered any during your stay.

Close to beach. House clean and tidy. The little extras were great. Kids loved the fresh bread and chocolate. Having a second bathroom was very handy.
