Sea La Vie - Quiet comfortable getaway.

Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Please note that we currently have a minimum three (3) night stay.

Welcome to Sea La Vie!

The perfect location for a relaxing, restful, and stress free holiday as a couple, for a family or just to hang out with friends.

Step out the front door and you are literally two (2) minutes walk to the beach, the pier, a terrific children's playground on the foreshore, and the shops! Brilliant! Dee’s Kitchen is just round the corner where you can enjoy breakfast and a coffee – great! Or head to Two Buoys which is only a few shops further down on the foreshore and enjoy tapas and a glass of wine. The ‘ice creamery’ is also close by with great ice creams on the beach or enjoy fish and chips at the local fish and chip shop which is great value. We are very close to everything including grocery stores, chemist, banks and the post office - all just a few minutes walk away which means you can visit the shops, restaurants or the beach at your leisure, yet pop back to your accommodation at any time with little inconvenience. Only two (2) minutes drive to Safety Beach for yachting and sailing calendar events or a few minutes drive to Arthurs Seat or the local drive in for a movie.

The Peninsula Hot Springs/ Day Spa Centre, golf and wineries are also only a short drive away.

So what is the Sea La Vie like to stay at?

In a nutshell you are in the perfect location and you will be staying in a cosy, clean and comfortable, two (2) bedroom cottage, with polished timber floorboards throughout which includes zoned dining, lounge and kitchen areas. It sleeps up to 4 people with bed linen and towels being provided. Bedding is first class with new mattresses and quality bed linen, (Sheridan and Laura Ashley) ensuring a good night’s sleep. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and the second bedroom has 2 single beds. All beds are great to sleep in! There is plenty of hanging space and hangers for clothes, including storage space for personal items. There is also a treasure chest full of board games and puzzles to enjoy and a chess table. Or you might like to enjoy the large 42 inch LCD TV,/DVD player! (However please BYO your own DVDs.) Air conditioning is new with a large Mitsubishi air conditioning unit.

The kitchen area has plenty of storage with a full size fridge and freezer, microwave, toaster etc. and we have just installed a 'Smeg free standing upright stove' with 6 gas burner cooktop including a fish burner and electric oven for the kitchen. There is quality English china (Queens) and glassware for meals. The laundry includes a washing machine and trough and a clothes line is located outside. The bathroom has a single shower and separate toilet facilities. You can also enjoy the decking area out the front for a morning breakfast, a relaxing wine in the evening or there is more seating and a table at the rear of the property. The cottage is located on a large block, has a single carport and plenty of room for parking additional cars or a boat on site.

Great family house!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our holiday at Sea La Vie. Everything was just as described and spotlessly clean. It did remind me of my childhood holidays where we played board games. The beds were comfortable and our extra touches from Linda were greatly appreciated. Lovely quiet area and walking distance to the shops and beach. Thank you Linda for a relaxing stay.

Great little beach house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Sea La Vie, and loved the house it reminded us of beach houses of our childhood - simple, spotless,comfortable and most importantly walking distance from the beach.

Linda was a great to communicate with and we will be returning for another break soon.

Great Location and wonderful host

  • 4 of 5

Cosy holiday home in a great location and value for money. The local IGA has been renovated and is a city it's self. Walking distance to the beach, restaurants, take away and cafes. Also, Linda's Queen bed has to be the most comfortable bed we have slept in. Complimentary inclusion of all the lovely bed linen and towels, made our stay stress free, which meant less things I needed to pack. We brought bikes with us and our young teenagers rode from Dromana to McCrae on their own. After we left the property and got home we realised we had left behind our bike rack tool. I called Linda who happened to be at the property. She located the tool and kindly offered to drop it off within the week. That same evening we happened to be out for dinner and I received a call from Linda. I was surprised to hear she was standing in front of my place to personally return the tool and refund my bond. She was so kind to go out of her way as she couldn't bare the thought of me driving around the city with this bulky bike rack on the back of my car. Linda is the perfect host with the perfect place to go with it. Thank you so much Linda for your kind hospitality and for the welcome gifts of fresh cherries, wine etc. Enjoyed them all.

Comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cute little cottage. Lynda was lovely, she went out of her way to ensure we had a great stay, and we really enjoyed the wine and goodies she left us to prepare us for the Aus Day fun run! Would definitely stay here again.
