About the property

Treat yourself to a luxury retreat at this recently refurbished and newly furnished spacious 4 bedroom beachhouse with your very own sparkling, solar heated pool! Perfect for a family (or two), the house sleeps 8 comfortably, and offers all the creature comforts for you and your pets*.

The modern house is a stroll to the beach (600m), where the stunning bayside beaches of the peninsula await you. Stop off for an ice-cream at the corner shop, or have a meal at the café around the corner, before you return for a lazy afternoon by the pool where you can watch the BBQ sizzle and sip the local wine.

Ducted heating and two split system air conditioners, as well as ceiling fans in the bedrooms, will keep you comfortable when at home. If you're looking for a change from lazing by the pool or on the beach, why not try some of the activities that have made the Peninsula the place where Melbourne (and the world) comes to play.

* Golf, markets, wineries, restaurants

* Snorkelling, Fishing

* Horse riding on the beaches of St Andrew’s

A further three double bedrooms and family bathroom (separate bath and shower), can be found through the second living area and kitchen at the rear of the house.

Two spacious living areas with flat screen TVs offer entertainment for all - Wii, IPod docking station, games, books and a treasure chest of toys for the kids.

Cook up a storm in the modern kitchen, equipped with all you would expect in a luxury property, including a luxurious 900mm Ilve oven. The kitchen overlooks the pool and includes a coffee machine and dishwasher, of course. Serve up your feast at the gorgeous oak dining table, or outside under the shade sail by the pool.

The kids (and pets!) can run around in the back garden, which is fully enclosed. The large lawn provides the perfect spot for a game of backyard cricket/bocce/football. All the equipment you need can be found in the cubby! The pool is separated from the lawn area by a safety fence.

Fantastic week away

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Charmes. The house had plenty of room for two families, close walk to the beach, love the pet friendliness and the kids swam in the heated pool everyday despite the rain.

Perfect for kids and dogs!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Charmes - the weather was perfect and the kids absolutely loved the pool. We had my parents staying with us for a few days and the layout of the house was perfect with a separate 'wing' at the front with king sized bed and ensuite, and a family friendly section for us and the kids (and dog) at the back. Views over the pools from so many rooms made supervision of the kids (7 and 10) very easy. The house was beautifully furnished without being precious, and the beaches both front beach for swimming and back beach for exploring rock pools were beautiful. We mainly ate in at the big family sized dining table and having full sized fridge and pantry made shopping easy too. A really perfect end to the school holidays.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

Charmes is situated in an excellent position - close enough to walk to the beach or a 5 min drive to the back surf beach - the home is very dog friendly as is the local beach. Loads of room for everyone to spread out with great fans in bedrooms and aircon in the main lounge areas. The pool is very well maintained and we loved having a swim in it. The home has everything you need and is very clean - I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a clean, quiet place close to the beach.

We spent a few nights at 'Charmes' - wish it could have been longer. The property was spotless and very well appointed. Plenty of room for everyone (we stayed with another family), and tones for the kids to do without even leaving the house. Very relaxing for all of us. Look forward to coming back soon!

great for a young family

Great house with kids toys, pool and a yard. Location fantastic for toddlers and young kids with the nearby beach foreshore perfect, low waves and very shallow.

Paradise close to home

  • 5 of 5

on't let looks deceive you. This tranquil place is nestled amongst a natural surround. Upon approach you wonder what to expect but the property speaks for itself. With ample room for the 6 adults, a child and a dog we all had enough room to be together and alone. The pool was lovely although the weather did not allow us to enjoy it more. Plenty of room around the dining table for everyone to enjoy a family meal and a well equipped kitchen to assist in its preparation. Overall a lovely stay close to all amenities.
