About the property

If you would like a water front holiday, but your dates are not available, please check out our other lake-front properties:

PetLet 4: Private Beach-Encounter Lakes (Stayz No 117783)

PetLet 16: Lake Front Contemporary Villa (Stayz No 180617)

Enjoy a wonderfully relaxed holiday on Encounter Lake in this immaculate 'pink diamond', pet-friendly home. Imagine morning coffee and afternoon drinks at the water's edge. Fish, canoe and swim from your own private jetty or paddle in the shallows from the nearby lakeside sandy beach. Or simply relax in the under-stated luxury offered by this property, with its stunning views over a wide expanse of the lake, the lakeside beach, and the ever changing hills backdrop, while being a mere two minute stroll from the Franklin Parade esplanade and southern ocean reef.

Inside, ducted evaporated cooling, gas fired heating, and bedroom ceiling fans enhance the comfort of a house that combines practical living with homely charm.

A separate living room with inviting leather couches features a large LCD TV and X-Box 360/DVD player, with a selection of children's DVDs and X-Box games, while the huge, fully tiled open-plan casual family living and dining area has superb views of the lake. A large LED TV, with DVD player and a micro music system (CD player, radio, & iPod/iPhone lightning-connector dock), including a generous and eclectic selection of DVDs and CDs, provides numerous entertainment options. The dining table can seat up to eight.

The luxurious contemporary kitchen has commanding views of the lake and features beautiful stone bench tops, ample soft-close high and low storage cupboards and drawers, and quality appliances that include a gas hob, high level electric and microwave ovens, and dishwasher.

This home boasts four bedrooms and all include built-in wardrobes. The large bay-fronted master bedroom benefits from a walk-in robe, en-suite bathroom, and king-size bed. Bedroom 2 has a queen-size bed and spectacular views of the water. Bedroom 3 contains two single beds, and the fourth bedroom offers a bunk bed for younger guests. A generous three-way family bathroom also offers 'powder-room' convenience close to the main living areas. The laundry features a 'set-and-forget' high-end all-in-one washer/drier, plus a doggy door for a small/medium sized dog.

The open-plan front garden features a stunning mature rose bed and tranquil native Australian plantings, while also providing plenty of room for off-street paved parking. The rear garden is fully fenced and enjoys superb lake views and rural vistas of rolling hills. It also offers a gabled roof pergola/outdoor entertaining area fitted with cafe blinds and equipped with a 4-burner BBQ and al fresco dining for eight.

Separated from the main garden by a fence to ensure safety for small children and pets, a private wooden jetty/landing has steps straight down to the water and two kayaks are available for your enjoyment (please note: personal flotation devices for adults and children are provided and their use is required by law).

Within easy walking distance, you'll find two noted restaurants on the esplanade - The Beach House and Pa's Fish Cafe - and also Yiki General Store. The popular Boulevard Cafe, on the corner of Bartel Boulevard and Matthew Flinders Drive, is also within walking distance.

Bedrooms are set up as follows:

Main - King size bed + WIR & ensuite

Second - Queen size bed + BIR

Third - two single beds + BIR

Fourth - one bunk (two single beds) + BIR

100% Pet Friendly Property - Your Dogs & Cats are Welcome Inside!

Like all PetLet properties, your animals are 100% welcome. Well behaved dogs and cats are allowed inside. Secure fencing in the back yard (though back fence is low to maximise views of the lake). Please bring own rugs/sheets if your animals like to get on furniture.

We supply food and water bowls.

This is a fantastic property - clean, spacious, and with high quality furnishings and fittings - we felt immediately at home. The views are amazing and the proximity to the lake is a real bonus. We would definitely stay again.
