About the property

This great 3 bedroom house is located in a quiet part of Venus Bay close to beach 5. Set on stilts, the elevation provides a wonderful feeling of sitting in the tree tops and allows for glimpses of Anderson Inlet from the house and large decked area.

Comfortable open plan lounge, dining and kitchen comes complete with all mod cons, including automatic coffee machine, dishwasher, stereo with ipod dock, LCD TV, DVD player (and USB input), split system heating and cooling. The kitchen set up will make the cook in the family happy - with plenty of utensils and servingware, plus juicer, food processer and a good selection of pots/pans.

Two of the bedrooms offer queen beds both with direct access to the deck and the views beyond, and the third bedroom has two sets of bunkbeds. One bathroom with toilet, shower and hip bath is located in the house with a second shower, toilet and laundry facilities available downstairs (accessed from backyard) providing the perfect place to wash off after a beach adventure.

The large north facing deck catches the afternoon sun and provides outdoor seating, plus a 5 burner bbq and outdoor heater. Relax in the lovely hanging pod chair - just perfect for taking time out to watch the treetops and enjoy the birdsong. The secluded back garden below offers a shady alternative on hot summer days and more outdoor seating.

Laze the afternoon away (books, magazines and board games available) or enjoy a stroll to one of the close by attractions - beach 5, fishing jetty and playground all within walking distance.

Parking for 2 cars is available inside property fence (no garage/undercover parking).

Porta-cot and high chair available.

High amongst the trees

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay over Easter.

The house is approx. 15-20 minute walk from beach 5 but only a 5 minute drive.

We were especially happy to be able to bring our dogs away on this holiday and loved spending time on the deck enjoying a bbq or just to sit and relax.

There was everything you could ask for in the kitchen and we loved trying out the coffee pod machine. There was also lots of games and dvds in the cupboards so plenty to entertain kids of all ages.

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

A very user friendly and comfortable place to stay, there's a fantastic deck with a gorgeous outlook - views into the distance, the big garden also would be great for kids and pets. A corner allotment ensures the serenity and privacy. The mid-century retro styling was very cool also. The manager and key collection made getting in to the property a breeze. We really didn't want to leave.

Lovely summer stay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a relaxed summer week away at Treetops. Loved the sunny deck area! The home was clean & comfortable, about 10-15 min walk to beach 5. Appreciated the generous supplies of coffee capsules and tea. Good communication from owners.

Had a lovely stay for 2 nights, mostly relaxed and walked around the area.

Beaches were amazing and since the property allows pets my dog had an equally great time !

Fun and cosy stay

  • 5 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay including the family pet. The massive selection of games and books lift our spirits as we are hit with some unfortunate weather. Beach 5 is located quite close, an easy walk or run. The landlady was an attentive host, providing all the essentials (including coffee capsules) and wrote back to all my enquires prior to our stay. The place was clean and cosy. We will definitely be back!!!
