About the property

Comfortable 3 bedroom townhouse

Our tidy 3 bedroom fully self contained townhouse will make the perfect base to explore all the region has to offer. The large outdoor area means that no matter the weather you can enjoy the fresh country air at the end of your day.

A Weber BBQ is provided as well a few pantry items to save bringing them along yourself. Help yourself to the seasonal herbs in our raised garden beds during your visit.

Don't feel like cooking? Porepunkah has 3 eateries, and if that isn't enough Bright is a 5 minute drive away.

The main bedroom has a queen bed and the 3rd bedroom has 2 single beds. The 2nd bedroom can be set up as 2 singles or 1 queen bed. Let us know when booking how you would like this to be arranged.

The house has a secure colourbond fence 1.8m high enclosing the yard. There are a few raised garden beds along one side and this neighbour has a dog.

Any damage or time deemed as significant spent cleaning up after a stay (inside or outside) will be documented by photograph and a claim for additional cleaning time made from your security deposit. This includes non-pet stays.

About Joe & Jo

We both live and work locally and enjoy getting to spend time in the outdoors either mountain biking, walking or eating at one of the many wonderful restaurants/cafes in the area.

We have another 2 properties at a rural location nearby which we also offer as holiday accommodation.

Joe & Jo purchased this townhome in 2017

Why Joe & Jo chose Porepunkah

We loved the location being only 1km from the centre of Porepunkah with its chilled out vibe, and only 5km along the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail to Bright. If we were into golf we would only have 1km to go!!

The house is small but well laid out with a large covered outdoor area for year round use, and an enclosed yard. There are a couple of lovely garden beds which we try to keep stocked with herbs and veggies that you can use. The kitchen is well laid out and you should find most things you need to cook for yourselves.

What makes this townhome unique

There are very few properties in the are that offer pet friendly accommodation at an affordable rate. Having had dogs of our own we understand that it is nice and sometimes necessary to be able to bring them along. We expect our pet owners to be responsible and leave the place in a condition that others, including non-pet owners can enjoy.

Fabulous place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This property is lovely. Lots of space and very very comfortable. We loved the rules for bringing your dog too because often dog friendly properties have that doggy smell. Not the case here. Beautiful, clean and warm. Highly recommend.

Modern comfortable property.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. We were very close to the rail trail and Myrtleford. The house is very modern and appears to have been built in the last few years. (So if you want rustic charm, this is not the place). The reverse cycle aircon kept us comfortably cool in the Victorian summer, and would have kept us warm if it were cold.

The house had clean linen, and was clean throughout.

Our hosts were friendly and quick to return calls.

What more can anyone ask for?
