PetLet 4: Renovated 4BR w Private Beach & Boat

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 4 nights


About the property

** At Pet Let, our lovely guests are our business! So we say thank you with a lovely bottle of South Australian wine and some choccy on arrival! Please enjoy! **

Is this the ultimate in pet friendly Fleurieu holidays? We may be biased, but we think it is! Lets start with its location: lakefront with a private beach! The downstairs living area, main bedroom suite, private courtyard and rear verandah all enjoy stunning views of the beach and the lake. If you want to do more than just sit and stare, drag our kayak a few metres from the back fence to the water line and go for a 4.5km paddle! Go for a swim. Take the row boat for a spin. Play with the kids on the beach or in the shallow water at the lakes edge. This is a truly glorious place to get active or just relax!

The two story house is located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac just a few minutes walk from Franklin Parade (the esplanade at Encounter Bay). The property has been extensively renovated in September 2017 with brand new kitchen, two new bathrooms, new flooring throughout, new furniture in most rooms, new LED lighting, new window treatments and more!

As you walk in the front door to the hallway, there is a large downstairs light and bright bedroom (all beds are made up ready for your arrival), with a sliding door to the private courtyard, and a wall mounted TV. Next is a bathroom, which means those who are not able to climb stairs can reside completely downstairs throughout their stay. There is a separate toilet (nicknamed the “Harry Potter Room” because it is under the stairs) and laundry. The hallway ultimately opens onto the main open plan living area and kitchen. This fully tiled space has a wall of windows looking out to the lake and private beach for uninterrupted views.

There is an extendable dining table that can seat 10, a lounge area with big LCD TV and home theatre and a kitchen with dishwasher and breakfast bar. This room has three sets of sliding doors: two leading out to the verandah overlooking the lake and one leading to the private central courtyard.

The central courtyard (still with views to the lake) has a wonderful Vergola remote control roof. This enables you to control the light and air flow in the courtyard. It can be completely closed for a waterproof space. The 4 burner hooded gas BBQ sits in the courtyard, along with an outdoor setting.

Upstairs are three more bedrooms, including one that doubles as a second living space (with TV, Apple TV and DVD), and two full bathrooms. The main bedroom suite has a large walk in robe (with views of the lake!), an ensuite bathroom and a large bedroom space with stunning views. It has its own wall mounted TV.

The back verandah (facing the lake) is a lovely place to sit, relax and enjoy the lake. There is a comfortable outdoor setting as well as two Ikea beach chairs that can be moved anywhere in the garden (or down on the beach).

There is NBN WiFi throughout the house and Apple TVs with free Netflix and Stan in both upstairs and downstairs living areas. This gives you access to a massive library of movies and high quality TV shows. The kids can be upstairs watching Red Dog 1 and 2 while you're downstairs watching House of Cards!

If you want to walk to the Esplanade at Encounter Bay, it is a flat 5 minute walk (there is a cut through at the bottom of Islander Drive). The house is within walking distance to 3 cafes (our favourite – The Beach House, Pa’s Fish Cafe and The Boulevard Cafe (on the lake at Bartel Boulevard) and the Yilki General Store (extremely popular for coffee and an egg roll for breakfast!.

Bedding Configuration

4 Bedrooms:

Bedroom 1: King size bed with huge pillow top mattress (upstairs)

Bedroom 2: Queen size bed with pillow top mattress (upstairs)

Bedroom 3: Queen size bed (downstairs)

Bedroom 4/Second Living Area: 1 x Double sofa bed (extra cost applies) (upstairs)

*** Pet Friendly Holidaying ***

If your pets are put in a kennel while you are on holidays not only will they have a horrible time and you will miss them, but it will cost you a significant chunk of money! Bring the fur kids on holiday with you instead!

The backyard of this property is completely enclosed so your animals can be outside safely. There is shade and lawn. Your well behaved animals are very welcome inside. If but not on the furniture please (unless you bring blankets or sheets to cover the furniture).

We provide food and water bowls. Just bring bedding for your animals and they will be set for a wonderful holiday!

Our properties are cleaned to a very high standard to ensure that whilst it is pet friendly, it is not pet smelly!

***Council limit of 2 pets per stay***

If this property is booked, we have another pet friendly property on the lake at Encounter Bay (33 Clipper Court). That property has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and was extensively renovated in November 2015.

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days at this amazing property. The home was spotless and well set out and decorated. Very quiet location ovetlooking the lake. Absolutely loved spending time with our dogs out on the lawn by the lake. Both dogs had a ball and we loved watching how they were enjoying there stay. This holiday for us was all about the dogs and them having fun.
