Monty's Rest - Grand Design on secluded 10 acres

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Enjoy the serenity of 10 private acres abutting Arthurs Seat State Park complete with native wildlife, while remaining central to the attractions of the peninsula. Only 10 minutes to the Red Hill Epicurean and less than 5 minutes to the Enchanted Adventure Garden and Arthurs Restaurant at the summit. Local shops are only 5 minutes away while a further 5 minutes will find you at the beach.

Whether you're looking to turn a wedding weekend into a getaway, or simply looking to get away, this property is the perfect choice. The architect designed 3 bedroom home is perched on a hill overlooking native bush with scattered views of the ocean and features a wood fire heater for those crisp nights.

Relax with a glass of local wine while kangaroos graze at dusk, and watch out for the echidnas sneaking across the lawn.

Wander down the hill to the lake beside the driveway for a refreshing swim with the ducks in the warmer months.

Step off the block and on to the Kings Falls circuit walking track in the State Park, and visit the falls that flow all year. The energetic can keep going along the Two Bays Walking Track which links to many of the other popular bushwalking spots in the area.

The main house contains:

Main bedroom with king bed

Fully equipped kitchen

Dining table seating 6

Main lounge area with wood fire heater

Loft lounge area with TV and DVD/Blu-ray player

Main bathroom with separate toilet

Outdoor decking with BBQ

Separate bungalow, access only provided for bookings of 4 or more people (accessed by covered walkway from main house):

Second bedroom with one queen bed (opened for bookings of 4 people)

Third bedroom with two single beds (access via second bedroom, opened for bookings of 6 people)

Second bathroom/laundry

Please note that booking must be made per room, not per person. So for 2 bedrooms the price is for 4 people and for 3 bedrooms the price is for 6 people.

All beds have electric blankets.

All linen is provided including bath towels.

Children are welcome, but please be aware the lake is not fenced and not visible from the house.

Early check-in and late check-out is offered without extra cost whenever possible.

No pets please as they scare the kangaroos, ducks and echidnas.

Memorable holiday

  • 5 of 5

My extended family enjoyed our time at Monty's Rest. It's a fantastic location. Secluded next to a national park but still close to beaches, bush walking tracks and tourist attractions like the Eagle gondola ride at Arthur's Seat and the Enchanted Maze. We had daily visits from kangaroos and kookaburras. The house and the bungalow are both well appointed and comfortable. The fast internet was an unexpected bonus. The host was a pleasure to deal with. We will always remember our wonderful holiday there.

For our group of 5 it was great

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay.

The home is unique in a secluded part of Arthur's Seat next to a state park.

It was great watching the local wildlife come out and around the house in the afternoon.

The house is perfectly positioned to visit the local wineries, chair lift and other sites.

And the shops were a short drive away.

The house has a main bedroom and there is a bungalow attached which has two other bedrooms. This set up may not suite everybody but we enjoyed the stay.

Very relaxing.

Great location

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, however the bedroom layout wasn't ideal for 2 families (2 adults & 1 child each) as it meant one of the children was in the bungalow and their parents in the house. The adjoining, open bedrooms in the bungalow also means no privacy for the adults as the kids are next door! Property is also very dark at night and difficult to find, as the sign on the gate doesn't say Monty's Rest. Great location and very peaceful.

We loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. It was challenging to find, on an unsealed road in the dark, but we were very happy when we did arrive. The architecture was both unique and comfortable. The property was well located for a range of activities in the area, and our children enjoyed waking up to be greeted by kangaroos on the front lawn. Whilst secluded, the local shops were not too far to drive to.

Comfortable peninsula property

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 really enjoyed the stay. The property has lots to explore, including the vegie garden not mentioned in the advertisement. The owner has prepared every detail for the comfort of guests.

Being next to the national park means you can have some decent walk as well.
