About Marg and Lindsay

We have been holiday renting our home now for over 10 years. Holidays are a very special time for all of us. It's when we get away from our everyday lives, relax, have fun and create our fondest memories. Our lives are now so much richer having had this home. The people we have met, our neighbours, friends and family have all been a part of it. It has brought us much joy and many new people into our lives.

Marg and Lindsay purchased this house in 2007

Why Marg and Lindsay chose Ocean Grove

Our story starts 25 years ago in 1990. We began our annual beach holiday to Ocean Grove when our 3 boys were toddlers. For 17 years we rented numerous Holiday Houses in various locations in Ocean Grove for a week every Christmas Holidays. The boys loved it! and Ocean Grove was a topic they wrote about all through school as their favourite place in the world.

Every year Lindsay and Marg gazed at the properties for sale in the Real Estate windows, thinking how wonderful it would be to own one. Then in July 2007 we decided to make that dream come true when we purchased 20 Barramundi Crescent Ocean Grove. There was much excitement, we spent hours cleaning walls, floors and fixing everything. We scrubbed the house from top to bottom, furnished and decorated, added beach pictures and decor. We had a great time transforming it into our Holiday Home.

We listed it online for bookings in December 2007 and welcomed our first guests in January 2008. Our own experiences renting holiday homes over the 17 years gave us a good knowledge of what would be important for our guests to enjoy their stay in our home. It needs to be clean and welcoming, everything there just like home, uncluttered, must have a beach theme and a good vibe!

What makes this house unique

It's so rewarding when we receive texts and reviews from guests that have had a great time staying! We take a lot of pride in our home and our customer service. It really has been a wonderful experience!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

This is a large Ocean Grove family house over two levels. Nice layout on upper level with living areas giving way to a massive deck with a sea view. Heating is quick when needed. Can't think of anything the large well-equipped kitchen did not have. Great for families, spacious, easy to keep clean and no clutter. Quiet street and easy car access to the rest of the peninsula's attractions.

Spotless clean

  • 5 of 5

The house is spotless clean. Highlights are the lover and upper entertainment area. First day was hot, we were in lower entertainment area. Very comfortable on a 33C day. Upper entertainment area is good for a cuppa and watching ships go by. Would recommend friends.

P.s. The kitchen has everything to cook up a storm. We eat out the whole time. Next visit, we will have 1-2 simple meals in the house. Such a nice kitchen.

Excellent property!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this amazing property in an incredible location. The house is set out gorgeous with everything you need plus most of the little extras you usually forget to pack! It really was an absolute pleasure to stay at Ocean grove holiday house. We made good use of the bbq and deck and the kids loved the table tennis table! Was truly perfect for our family. We will definitely be coming back, maybe without the kids next time ;)

Big credits to both Marg and Lindsey for running such an amazing holiday house and keeping up with great communication during the whole process.

Thankyou so much :)

Perfect rental.

  • 5 of 5

Really nice neighborhood home. The house was equipped with a great BBQ and all sorts of little things that can be a pain to buy for just a week. Condiments. Soaps. Washing powder. Paper towels, you name it they had it. Marg and Les seem to sincerely care about the happiness of your stay. We loved the ping pong table in the garage also. Very easy people to communicate with via text.
