Overview

About the property

Also, check out our brand new property, Dune Haven on http://www.stayz.com.au/accommodation/vic/phillip-island-gippsland/venus-bay/55835.

Captain's Cottage: Up to 10 guests. Air conditioned comfort. New, modern 3 bedroom home. Easy walk to beach 1, village shops and playground.

Perfect for a relaxing getaway with the patrolled beach no.1, playground and shops only a short walk away. Set in a fantastic location this modern and spacious, 3 bedroom home, offers stylish holiday accommodation.

Plenty of extras provided including books, games and dvd's. The light-filled open plan living area features: Modern fully equipped kitchen with caeserstone benchtops, glass splashback, stainless steel appliances including dishwasher, double door fridge, 900mm oven and microwave; Dining area; Spacious lounge area with open fire, leather chaise lounge, large HD flatscreen TV and BlueRay player. The lounge leads onto the fully protected deck. This is the perfect place to relax with dining setting, outdoor kitchen(BBQ, sink and fridge)and outdoor rattan lounge with daybed.

Polyglazed roofing allows the light in but not the weather. The added protection of bistro blinds makes it an all year round prospect. The property has 3 large bedrooms. Bed 1 with a queen bed, flat screen TV, ensuite and walk-in robe. Bed 2 is larger and has been set up as a kids retreat, with two sets of bunks (one with a double on the bottom) plus a single trundle, beanbags, flat screen TV, DVD and built-in robes. For the 'Thomas' fans there is a full size 'Thomas' table complete with trains. Bed 3 has a queen bed and built in robes. The split system a/con, coupled with the double glazed windows, underfloor insulation and boosted insulation provides the perfect ambient temperature. Large, stylish main bathroom with 1350 x 1200 stepless shower. Walk through laundry with front loading washing machine and large storage cupboards. Outside the laundry there is an external shower for rinsing off after enjoying a day at the beach.

Everything is provided apart from linen and firewood, so we ask our guests to bring their own linen, bath towels, tea towels and bath mats. There are pillows, doonas and blankets provided. Bags of firewood are readily available at the local Venus Bay and Tarwin Lower General Stores.

The home is set on a fully fenced corner block making it perfect for families with pets, and provides ample off street parking. Animal lovers may enjoy feeding the friendly resident magpies. Keep a look out for Eddie the Echinda who sometimes ventures by on the lookout for some tucker, or adventurous kangaroos who have been known to hop by on occasion.

During peak time the Venus Bay No. 1 Beach (which is the closest to the property) is patrolled by the local surf lifesaving club. The streets of Venus Bay are fairly flat and therefore great for bike riding if guests want to bring their bikes. There is also a new bike track leading from Venus Bay along the Tarwin River to the next small town - Tarwin Lower. The house is also fully wheelchair friendly (except the ensuite shower). Features include a 1:10 entry ramp, 820mm internal doors and 1350 x 1200 stepless shower

Whether you want to curl up in front of the fire, spend a day on the beach, or have a quiet relax on the deck, this one's hard to beat.

Environmental factors

The home has been built to a 7 star energy rating which includes double glazed windows, underfloor insulation, plus upgraded insulation in ceiling and internal/external walls. Equinox eaves have been used to obtain full North sun thoughout winter and full protection over summer.

Local tradespeople and materials were used wherever possible to minimise the carbon footprint.

It has a 3kw solar power system which should makes the house 100% self sustaining.

The toilets are normal flushing toilets but the septic system uses a worm farm to break down waste before its dispersement.

We have also fitted a 33,500 litre water tank which covers all water use.

Cosy and clean

  • 5 of 5

We had such a relaxing stay here. Location is superb, the cottage is warm in winter and had everything a family needs. Great games, puzzles, train set, books and DVDs - something for everyone! It's set in a lovely setting.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Really great property with everything you need, we enjoyed the fireplace. A great location, not far from the shops. There were some plumbing issues but these are getting fixed by the owners and they were very responsive.

wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time. Thank you so much. The house was clean,tidy and just what we needed. It was a joy to stay here and have everything catered to. The outside shower was a great idea as even in winter the boys went swimming and came back covered in sand. All up it was a great get away. recommend this property to anyone heading in this direction for a holiday.

Classy beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Captain's Cottage! Fantastic open plan living room and kitchen was modern but still had a beachy vibe. Plenty of natural light in the day. The wood fireplace and coloured lights in the kitchen created a warm cozy vibe that was great for watching movies and playing board games as a family in the evenings. Plenty of space in the 3 bedrooms and two modern bathrooms with plenty of hot water. Short walk to a path through the hills to the incredibly long Venus Bay ocean beach. Would definitely recommend this property and will likely be back!
