About the property

This two storey home has sweeping bay views across the bay to Port Phillip heads and the Bellarine Coast.

The house is situated in quiet a cul-de-sac street, with a park in the street with swings and a jungle jim.

There is a private and secure backyard pool retreat, with two outdoor dining areas to match the Zeigler and Brown Twin Grill Barbecue. A manicured outdoor garden with lounge chairs with soft cushions complete the grassed and tiled areas.

It is only a short stroll to South Beach which is an easy 400m.

Varuna is a great destination for single families, family groups or groups of adults enjoying a girls or boys weekend, that wish to have a complete household to enjoy themselves. Designed with a vast open plan upper level living area and dining area (seating up to 12 guests when the extra leaves are opened), as well as sweeping water views that are spectacular year round.

Varuna can also be a cosy romantic retreat for a couple wishing to enjoy the privacy and seclusion of a beautiful house with space and great amenities. Watch out for special offers, and last minute bookings.

The backyard pool and gas fireplace located in the upper living room sets the scene for winter and summer holiday breaks in the company of family or friends.

A second downstairs living space opening out onto the backyard pool deck, is equipped with TV and Rumpus Room space housing a treadmill. There is also a infant's port-a-cot.

There is year round terrific fishing off Balcombe Creek, and marvellous Boardwalk that tracks along the Mount Martha section of Balcombe Creek for approximately 5 kilometres,

Relaxing Getaway.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful house with water views

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyable week holiday with a group of 10 people +2 children. The house was clean and enjoyable to be in. Very spacious for 10 people + 2 children to comfortably stay for the week. The pool was clean and a hit for the whole week as we swam daily. Great view of the bay and the nightly sunsets, our group loved the telescope looking out onto the bay. Kitchen appliances were all new and in great condition, as well as plenty of glasses, knives and forks, platter trays etc. As well as the laundry facilities were modern and all washing powder, detergent everything was provided. A quick drive to Mount Martha Village and beach, most mornings we would walk to the village/beach which would only take us 5-10 minutes. The owner was fantastic, very responsive to questions and helpful with suggesting places to eat and making sure everything was OK and we were enjoying our stay. Very quick at getting our security deposit back - over all the owner was extremely helpful and made sure we had a great holiday. Cannot fault this location or house, we would love to stay again.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jade for a fabulous review, we try very hard to make sure the house is clean and well maintained. We're always spending time and money making it well maintained and functioning. You have left the house in great order, and this is always a great incentive to welcome you in the future. We are planning more improvements over the winter months to make the house even more fun and comfortable.
