About Phil Brown/Tom Peters

Our story begins in 2006.

After discovering that boating kept all our kids entertained (not easy with an 11 year age gap), we purchased a second hand runabout and proceeded to explore the waterways of Victoria. We discovered the canals of Paynesville where almost every house has its own jetty. What joy to be able to launch a boat and leave it in the water for the duration of a stay!

Phil Brown/Tom Peters purchased this house in 2006

Why Phil Brown/Tom Peters chose Paynesville

After three years of becoming Gippsland Lakes regulars, we took the plunge and built two identical waterfront holiday homes with a partner, who also happened to be a building designer. We made a list of everything that would make a perfect stay and incorporated those things in our holiday rental.

What makes this house unique

Our property has a private jetty with outdoor shower, an outdoor open fireplace, three levels of decking, luxury linens, gorgeous furnishings, two master bedrooms with en-suites, and a fully kitted out kitchen for those that know that some of the best holiday moments are shared around the table.

With each house accommodating 11 guests, some memorable gatherings have taken place. If you’re able to drag yourself away from that marvellous view, there’s so much to see and do in the area from boating, water-sports, fishing, hiking, farmers markets, craft markets, wineries, destination restaurants, rail trails, museums and galleries. We’re still making new discoveries after all these years.

Lakehouse A - fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful quiet area, fully equiped house with plenty of space for 11 people. Great access to the lakes. Only issue for families is the stairs - a child safe gate and hand rail would have been good to have. Would definitely return if heading that way again.

Great family location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our extended family and it was the perfect location to relax and for our water sports. House was clean and great to not have to worry about brining linen & towels. Private jetty was fantastic and we now won't holiday without one.

Gippsland Lakes

There are many water based activities galore available on the lakes including fishing, sailing, water-skiing or boarding.The ocean beach is accessible by boat and one can motor over to the Bunga Arm where you can tie up at one of the jetties and walk over the sand dunes to the 90 Mile Beach. If you don't like crowded beaches then this is the place for you. Otherwise there is a family-friendly beach right in town on the esplanade.

In Paynesville, you can take the ferry over to Raymond Island for scenic walks, bike riding, koala spotting and even horse drawn carriage rides. There are also many walking tracks around the town such as Sunset Cove on Newlands Arm and the longer ramble from The Inlet to Eagle Point, or join one of the regular cruises that explores the lakes and its canal systems. Drop in at the Lake Gallery to admire the work of local and renowned artists in a contemporary setting, or just while away the afternoon with coffee and cake on the deck at Pier 70 watching the ferry and the sailing boats across the McMillan Strait.

There are food and craft markets in the area every weekend, as well as wineries, national parks, 4WD and kayaking tours. Bairnsdale is the main shopping hub for the region and is less than a 15 minute drive away. It also has a small but fabulous art gallery and a couple of local museums.
