Ocean Grove Great Escape - Family/Pet Friendly

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Park the car in the garage. this 3 year old immaculately presented and maintained property -not previously been offered for holiday rental- has everything to ensure the perfect family holiday without having to drive anywhere. It is located only 100 metres away from the rivers edge. The golf course and Jetty are located only 150 metres away. The river is a hot spot for swimming, fishing enthusiasts, kayakers and sailing.

This home is light, fresh and airy just how a beach house should feel. It was built in old ocean grove which is the flattest area of Ocean Grove and therefore great for kids to go bike riding, take walks along the rivers edge or even a spot of fishing from the bank or jetty. At low tide, the birdlife on the water is amazing, there are a number of varieties that can be seen from the waters edge and pelicans are regular visitors to the jetty always on the lookout for a free lunch when the boats come in. The convenience/service station is located just on the other side of wallington road, just a 3 minute walk. Next door to the service station is a breakfast hot spot for the locals.

Most of your fun daily activiites such as going to the beach, playground, shops, and even restaurants, such as the bowling club and golf club restaurants are within easy walking distance.

Our Property - Whats on offer

Frolic on the River is a 4 bedroom double storey home. It's set in a quiet street with very little through traffic.

Upstairs we have the main living area which opens up onto the upstairs balcony. The doors open right up onto the balcony so it feels like an extension of the upstairs living area. There is a small table and chairs for your convenience located on the balcony. The balcony has been modified to allow for small children/pets. In the living area there is a huge TV mounted on the wall, and bookshelves that have plenty of books for the young and young at heart. There is also a DVD player and plenty of DVDs available to watch. The controls for the heating/cooling are also located here. The kitchen meals area is a state of the art fully equipped kitchen with a two drawer dishwasher, walk-in pantry and stainless steel appliances, including a coffee maker. The huge master bedroom is also located upstairs which has a walk in robe and plenty of drawers. There is also a high chair and porta cot located in there as well - should they be needed. All linen is included - this includes pillows, towels and sheets.The ensuite upstairs is actually a walk through ensuite which is so convenient should guests choose to use that bathroom. The toilet upstairs is separated and located next door to the ensuite. No need to bring the hairdryer, we have thought of that to. Also note that we have a kids/dog safe door at the top of the stairs so that small children can be kept away from the top of the stair case.

Downstairs there are 3 other bedrooms. The first bedroom has 2 king single beds, which can be rolled together to make up one king bed. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and a fold out couch that will sleep 2 people, also a large TV/DVD. The third bedroom has a queen size bed and sliding door access out into the rear courtyard also a large TV/DVD. It also has another porta cot and high chair. Both the second bedroom and the third are big enough for porta cots or roll out beds if required. Also located downstairs is a full bathroom, including a bath and separate shower, seperate toilet, and full- equipped laundry, including an iron/ironing board, washine and dryer. The laundry also has a sliding door that allows access to a small secure area and clothes line.

The back yard is fully grassed and is secured by a gate which will even keep in the smallest dogs. We do welcome dogs/cats however large spirited dogs are not really that suitable given the size of our yard. Pets can be permitted but only upon application. The court yard which is an extension of the back yard is fully paved and comes equipped with a great bbq and outdoor table and chairs. The garage accommodates two cars and another two cars could be parked on the double driveway.

Just a few extras that are included as well..

- Games

- Beach toys

- kids bikes

- Electric bikes

-Toddlers pool

-Boogy boards

-Tennis racquets

Absolutely Stunning

  • 5 of 5

Definitely "home away from home"

Spacious & clean, exactly what you see in the pictures is what you get!

Everything we needed was there & more!

The location is PERFECT, 2 mins from the beach, shops & walk to the River.

Was the most perfect getaway for our family & we would love to visit again!

Loved watching the kids make use of the basketball ring & games of a night.

Thank you so much for letting us share "your" Beach House.

Helen & co.

Outstanding Property!

  • 5 of 5

This property is easily the best holiday rental we have ever stayed at. The house is modern, spacious and immaculate. It has everything that you could possibly need to enjoy your holiday, from a fully equipped kitchen (very much appreciated when on holidays!) to the books, dvds, cds, sports equipment and toys. The hosts have gone above and beyond to ensure that their guests have a wonderful stay.... and they have thought of absolutely everything; there was nothing that we thought could have been included. We could not have asked for a better property to stay in whilst enjoying a lovely holiday in Ocean Grove, and as we have family here, it goes without saying that we WILL be back! Thank you for such a wonderful holiday!

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous house in an amazing location, spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished and maintained and so comfortable. Our family of 8 had an awesome time. Everything we could have required was in place and more. The children had a ball playing with all the toys and the adults appreciated the books and dvds. TV's in the bedroom were appreciated and there were lots of sleep-ins in the extremely comfortable beds. The kitchen is very well equipped as is the laundry. This house is like a "home-away-from-home".

Many thanks to Megan xx
