This holiday home is a 2 storey 5 BR property with Lake Eildon frontage.

Ideal for swimming, fishing, kayaking or boat mooring.

The property is situated on Right Arm Road in Taylor Bay with views to the lake. The property is relatively flat, ideal for a game of cricket or kick of the footy.

So, hook-up the boat and head on down.

With a recent extension downstairs we have 3 bedrooms, another living area with pool table plus the 2nd bathroom, toilet and laundry area.

The 2 living areas each have TV's, 2 bathrooms and 2 toilets with Air conditioning and fridges on both levels.

There is a large North facing deck with views to the lake, Pool Table, BBQ, Satellite TV, Stereo with MP3 jack and DVD. Plenty of space to park the boat on a near flat block.


The Taylor Bay area of Lake Eildon is unique in that access to the Lake is only possible through private land. Large signs on the no-through road entrance to the Bay declare that there are no facilities available to the general public. Taylor Bay is located just 5 or so mins from Eildon township and approx 10 mins. from the dam wall and boat launching facilities. Taylor Bay provides year round access to water.

Eildon is approximately 2 hours drive from Melbourne along the Maroondah Highway via the magnificent Yarra Valley and through the Black Spur.

Excellent Family Boating Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We have now stayed at this property on 5 occasions! Feels like our home away from home! Owner is great to deal with and everything necessary to make a great family holiday is conveniently available there. Great view of the lake from the back balcony too which is enjoyed with the parrots, cockies and kookaburras. Yes we even see kangaroos hopping across the grass down below.

Perfect Accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't be happier with this accommodation. We were 2 couples travelling with an 18 month old and a 10 month old and found this place to be perfect. The view from the deck was stunning and was a great spot in general.

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5

Had a fabulous stay at Taylor Bay House. Beautiful location close to facilities in Eildon town. The house is perfect families and is ideal for either summer or winter conditions, lovely big sunny deck, reverse cycle air con and wood fire. Plenty of clean, comfortable bedding. Our teenage kids loved the pool table and the bird life is amazing. Can highly recommend.
