Our family stayed here over the xmas period. The house is huge and has everything you could need. The owners were quick to reply when we had an issue with the wi fi (only needed rebooting). The pool was fabulous as it was quite hot. The views were fantastic. Would definately stay again.
We chose Varuna Beach house as our accommodation for a yearly getaway with a group a friends.
The property is excellent. Close to the shops and beach, and the photos on the website undersell the amazing view from the second level.
It's a great location. Absolutely glad we chose this spot.
Thanks Douglas, we really love our house down on the peninsula, and it makes us proud when our guests love it as well! Thanks for looking after it!
We stayed at this amazing house for the weekend, with my kids and grandkids. The house is situated in a great position, walking distance to the beach, park and village.
The house was clean and had everything you needed, even board games.
This house is a credit to the owner.
Thanks for a great weekend.
Thank you Glenys, very nice of you to be so kind and effusive about our beautiful house! We try very hard to provide an excellent house for our guests. thanks again
Beautiful house with water views
This place was just perfect. It is huge in terms of bedrooms and living space which suited us, and the furniture is all pristine, with a gas log fire place too.
Mt Martha gem
Great weekend stay at this Mt Martha house. Great facilities, well appointed kitchen/dining area all with views of the bay. Close to shops and restaurants, this is an ideal retreat for couples or families.
Thank you Andrea, I appreciate the generous and kind comments. We try very hard to provide a great retreat that is comfortable and well appointed. We like to cook and have quiet and enjoyable time there ourselves. Also, thank you for leaving the house in a great condition when you left. Hope we can have you as a guest again.
We had a fantastic time at Varuna Beach House. The house had wonderful views, close proximity to beach and Mt Martha Village and was decked out with everything you need for a great stay. We hope to make this a regular stay each year.
Thanks Diane, great guests that have left the house in good order, always appreciated! Glad you enjoyed your time and would be pleased to welcome you again next year.
