Prince Oliver's Ocean Retreat

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Peak season December 1st to January 31st is a five night minimum stay.

This 1970s style beach house is bathed in natural light from sunrise, where you’ll wake to the sounds of native birds and the rustle of tall trees in the beautiful and established garden, to sunset when the stiff breeze off Bass Straight washes across the Belarine Peninsula destined for Port Philip Bay and Melbourne.

A stone’s throw from the Barwon River, Ocean Grove Surf Beach and Barwon Heads, the exceptional location of the house means you’ll never be stuck for things to do. Hang out on the beach and soak up the summer rays, take the kids to the Barwon River and build sand castles, try your hand at paddle boarding, or play a round of golf at the Ocean Grove Golf Course, you’ll love every minute of your stay. Take a stroll around Blue Water Lake or the kids to the park directly across the road.

Check out the High St shops and restaurants, or stop to read the paper and enjoy a hot coffee; Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads have it all.

If you prefer staying in, Prince Oliver’s Ocean Retreat has everything to keep you and the kids occupied for days on end.

2 separate living areas mean the adults can enjoy the peace and quiet over dinner and a crisp chardonnay, watch movies on the 60 inch flat screen TV, or simply lounge out whilst looking out across the front garden.

The brand new kitchen is extremely well equipped and features beautiful timber bench tops, dishwasher, gas oven and cooktop, and ample storage.

Bedroom 1 features a rustic queen size beds, built in robes, and French doors which open into the fully covered front courtyard.

Bedroom 2 sleeps three kids easily with a bunk bed and trundle combination.

Bedroom 3 features French doors that open into the private rear courtyard, built in robes, an extremely comfortable queen size bed, and a futon couch that easily folds out to form a second queen bed.

“Prince Oliver’s Ocean Retreat’s Games Room”. That’s right… a Games Room! In the Games Room you’ll find an amazing 9 x 4’6 Ft Australian made mahogany pool table, a 60 inch flat screen TV, Play Station 2 console, original 1980s style arcade machine with all your favourite classic games (Galaga, Pac Man, Donkey Kong, Space Invaders, etc), a competition dart board, stereo, and lounge suite. The whole family will find something in here to enjoy!

The house is exceptional value and is perfect for anyone looking to enjoy the experiences that Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads have to offer.

We love this house, and we know that you will too!

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Prince Oliver's Retreat. The house was fully renovated and modern with all the facilities needed for an enjoyable stay. The games room was an absolute bonus with a full sized pool table and large TV. As it was winter we stayed in most of the weekend and there was plenty to do as well as a really good ducted heating system! Would definitely stay again!
