The large block is fully fenced - family and pet friendly. There is also a medium kennel on the under cover deck. We have just installed a Bocce pitch, compete with a basketball ring. We even supply the balls!

Super warm over those cooler nights with a fireplace just fitted! Double glazed windows and bulk insulation thoughout keeps it toasty. It also features air conditioners throughout which both cools and heats to your desired temperature

European laundry with front loader washing machine and outside clothes line.

The Doyles road inlet beach is only a couple of minutes drive which is a safer swimming option for the little ones. It is also a designated dogs off leash area all year round.

If you are into fishing, there is a decent boat ramp with jetty a short drive away. Other close options are the beach and Doyles road for land based inlet fishing. Tarwin Lower boasts several purpose built boardwalks along the picturesque Tarwin river with another boat ramp.

Go to sleep with just the sound of the surf. Wake up to sounds of the birds. Incredibly quiet position.

Please note, the rate quoted does not include linen but we can provide this as an optional extra if required.

Well behaved pets are welcome at Dune Haven. The property is set on a large, fully fenced block giving them plenty of room to sniff around and explore. We allow pets inside (not on the furniture or in the bedrooms).There is also a medium sized kennel on the under cover deck. Please advise if you are bringing pets when booking.

Venus Bay beaches are dog friendly between beach 1 and 5 with the usual limited times over peak periods. A designated dogs off leash beach is only a short drive away.

Things to see and do

Venus Bay's pristine beach a short walk out the back yard.

Doyles road inlet beach is great for the kids, fishing and a designated dogs off leash beach.

Venus Bay village has a fantastic Cafe, general store, and fish and chip, pizza, fishing/beachwear, Ice cream shops,

Tarwin Lower has a great pub with courtesy bus that picks you up from your door. There is also a larger general store, butcher, post office, organic store, chemist, Home hardware, craft shop, petrol station and take away store.

It is a great base for a day trip to either Philip Island or Wilson's Promontory. Both of these are a nice scenic drive away and are feature packed. Why not stop in at Walkerville South on the way for beautiful protected beaches with incredible views.

Wonthaggi Coal mine is well worth a visit and has a very interesting underground tour, especially if the kids are into Minecraft. Another local Coal experience can be had at Korumburra. It is the South Gippsland version of Sovereign Hill.

There are farmers' markets aplenty. With Koonwarra, Tarwin Lower, Kongwak, Inverloch and Wonthaggi all hosting markets, there is generally one on somewhere. They have beautiful fresh local produce.

Amazing home and great for families

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved Dune Haven. It had everything and more you would need for a fabulous holiday. So close to the beach, cozy fireplace and great kitchen and BBQ to top it off. My 2.5 year old had the best time and he is still talking about Wally the wombat that visited the first night.

What a great property!

  • 5 of 5

Property is very well presented and very comfortable. House has pretty much everything you need. Short walk to Beach No5 is a bonus.

Could do with some instructions for the electronics in the house and maybe a starter set of wood and kindling for the fire.

Fantastic property so relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Dune Haven was absolutely amazing. The home itself was fantastic. Everything you could possibly want in a getaway and more. Entry was an absolute breeze and we just couldn't have had a more relaxing break watching DVDs that were provided and playing basketball and board games as well. We did so many great walks because the location is so close to the beach and also to the jetty. We've seen loads of wildlife including wombats, kangaroos, pelicans, ospreys, rabbits...the list goes on! Would highly recommend for couples, families, friends and pet friendly.

Great escape!

  • 4 of 5

What a fabulous family getaway. The stay was spacious with the comforts of home and only a short walk from the beautiful no 5 beach. Grandparents, grandchildren and children spent quality time away from the everyday stresses and enjoyed a peaceful stay. Thank you.
