About the property

Sensational panoramic views from the Bluff all the way to Port Elliott, Granite Island and Waitpinga. Spectacular sunrises that will take your breath away. Only 1km from Victor Harbor is only 5 mins away.

The property has decking to 3/4 of the house allowing you to entertain outside no matter what the weather is like. Enjoy cooking on the new modern gas BBQ whilst sipping on a glass of wine and taking in the sea air and hopefully catching a glimpse of a whale or two. Whale season June to August.

The house is in a very quiet neighbourhood opposite a reserve, ideal for walking your dog and situated in a very quiet street. It is due to this beautiful serene location and respect for our neighbours that we ask that no parties be held in this house.

This modern 3 bedroom air conditioned home has beautiful Tasmanian Oak flooring, open plan living/kitchen/dining and comes fully equipped with quality furnishings. There are two large flat screen tv's and a generous selection of DVD's for your viewing. We have a Nespresso pod coffee machine and the modern fridge comes with it's own ice maker. The modern kitchen has every appliance you could wish for to make your stay enjoyable. Take in the magnificent views from kitchen, lounge, dining and master bedroom. We also provide books and games for the whole family.

The generous size master bedroom has a wall mounted flat screen TV, walk in robe, sleigh queen bed and access to the front deck, ideal to sit and have your first morning "cuppa". Pull back the curtains in the morning to the most sensational sunrises. You won't want to leave!

The backyard is fenced allowing you to keep your young children and pets safe. Your pets will love it here. There is a lovely reserve across the road for them to enjoy. We do ask that you clean up after your pets for the comfort of the next guests.

The property is a two minute drive to Franklin Parade and The Bluff and local cafes.

Need a late check out.? Please ask, and where possible we will try to accommodate.

$80 cleaning fee applies to each booking together with a $300 bond. Total $380

Please ask if you would like linen to be provided and we can give you the contact details for the local linen supply company. They can deliver both sheets and towels to the property for your stay for a very realistic price. If you are bringing your own linen you will need to bring top and bottom sheets for each bed, pillow cases, tea towels, towels and bath mat.


Please note that this house is not suitable for more than 6 adults. Sorry no smoking inside the house.

If you are planning on partying then this is NOT the house for you. This is a very quiet and safe neighbourhood and our neighbours will report issues such as excessive noise or uncontrollable barking from dogs. Please keep your dog under control at all times. Failure to do so will result in immediate eviction.

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend away for Father's day this year. The house was beautifully presented and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The views were amazing and could be enjoyed from the front deck, the living room and even the bedroom. Would highly recommend!

Wonderful Avalon Beach House - We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first mini-holiday as a family of four. I picked this property because it wasn't in the main stay of Victor Harbor. My opinion - WOW! I would give this place 6 stars if I could!

The view is phenomenal; the location is exceptional! The property boasts 3 bedrooms and has enough room to accommodate two very active little boys. The house presented very clean - very modern and fresh. The kitchen - VERY well equipped and bonus is having a gas stove and decent oven. The bathroom is actually bigger than mine at home :-)

If you have a young family and are looking for a "home-away-from-home", look no further than Avalon Beach House. Trust me, you WON'T be disappointed.

PS: The boys (including the big boy!) LOVED the steep driveway :-)

stunning views and beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

This place was exactly what we wanted for a weekend getaway. Didn't feel the need to go anywhere as the views of the coast and Bluff were magnificent from inside in the warmth on the comfy couch or outside on the deck in the winter sun. We enjoyed our simple weekend "cooking" (ie preparing wine, cheese, dips, coffees and toasties) in the clean, well equipped and modern kitchen with a stunning view. Anyone wanting to do some more serious cooking would have no problems as there is a large gas cooktop and modern oven. In the evenings we enjoyed watching sunset colours fill the sky and a spectacular moon rise from the deck. Connecting up to the large flat screen TV was no problem for watching movies once it got too dark for the view. The weather was too good not to enjoy outdoors so we were glad we brought our bikes and rode down to The Bluff and Victor. Not for everyone if you don't like steep hills though. The house is very convenient for driving down to the coast and walking which we also did. The scenic walk along the coast south from The Bluff is gorgeous.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this impeccable property! The views from the balcony, lounge room and, believe it or not, the kitchen were amazing! Beautifully decorated home with style and comfort. Totally flawless home and loved the peace and serenity of the area. Definitely recommend this home and Encounter Bay and surrounding areas for a peaceful and relaxing holiday.
