Property type farmhouse


About the property

If you're looking for a unique and tranquil setting just 90 minutes from the heart of Melbourne and only 20 minutes to the beach, relax, you've found the Bena Farmhouse. Whether it's a family getaway or a couples retreat, there is something truly special about this place and from the moment you arrive you'll feel it. Time just seems to slow down.

The 1950's farmhouse is on 1.5 acres and sits within hundreds of hectares of additional grazing property. The house is homely and full of character with a fireplace, chiminea and enclosed porch - the best vantage point to share a drink and take in the amazing views. The surrounding gardens are a labour of love.

The Farmhouse has a brand new country kitchen with oven, hotplates, Dishwasher and retro dining. There are three bedrooms complete with divine Hungarian Goose down doonas (2 x Queen, 1 x single bunk set).

The bathroom has a shower over bath while the lounge has a beautiful chesterfield couch, chairs, TV, movies and games. Outside; the property features native and cottage gardens that are home to a variety of birds, butterflies and wildlife; while the organic vegetable garden and orchard provides some inspiration. For the kids (including BIG kids!); there’s room to run, trees to climb & endless jumping on the biggest trampoline in the world! The Farmhouse is also home to three friendly Alpacas: Carlos, Javier and Eduardo & chickens for a fresh supply of breakfast eggs!

Lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing stay at this beautiful property, I was happy to just sit on the back deck with the fire going admiring the view. We did venture out though to Wilsons Prom and Phillip Island. The house had everything in it that we could possibly want and the beds were comfortable and warm.

Beautiful country cottage with incredible views and garden. Kid loved the alpacas and chooks. Location is great for hopping around Gippsland tourism & the prom.
