Why Jeni Holmes chose Ocean Grove

After visiting Ocean Grove for several family holidays there wasn't a time when we didn't enjoy all it had to offer. Be it walking along the beach, surfing, swimming, riding bikes, golfing, eating at all the local cafes, sampling the local wines or just chilling by the fire in the winter, Ocean Grove gave us a unique vacation every time we arrived. We decided to purchase Frangipani Beach House as it is in a very quiet no through road so not many cars pass our front door as well as being a quick hop from the beach and only 5 minute walk to the shops. It has it all and not a day goes by that we aren't pleased with our decision.

What makes this house unique

In winter there is brilliant sunshine streaming into the lounge room and sitting at the dining table with a magazine and a cup of coffee makes it so cosy. In summer the wind could be blowing off the beach, however having a north facing backyard you can be sitting in warmth all day if you want. The birds chirping, the peacefulness, the resident ring tail possum and the beautiful 10 kilometre stretch of beach only 200 metres walk away is what makes this home so glorious.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is so so lovely. We could not fault it. Bedding was so clean and crisp and bed to die for with comfort. Plenty of space with two living areas if you bring the kids and need a little separate time. Outdoors lovely green tidy. Spa awesome. Great area and beach just literally 2 mins walk. Fantastic would highly recommend. Shhhhh though don't really want to many people to know so I have more opportunities in staying again. Owners very easy to deal with and transition with payment and keys brilliant. The gentleman that greets you on arrival is so kind.
Thank you for having my family Jeni. ENJOYED!!!!

One of Victoria's most popular seaside towns, Ocean Grove is the ideal place for families, couples and singles offering a diverse range of dining, sporting, cultural and natural environmental experiences. Ocean Grove is the largest town on The Bellarine, nestled neatly between the Barwon River estuary and the ocean beach, so you can choose either place for your fishing, paddling, sandcastle building, swimming or beach cricket. The ocean beach is a magnificent ten kilometre stretch from Point Lonsdale to Barwon Heads. Ideal for learning to surf, bodysurfing and boogie boarding, the main beach is patrolled by lifesavers from early summer to the Easter Holidays. Ocean Grove beach is renowned as the safest surf beach in Victoria, if not Australia.With a beautiful, wide surf beach, flourishing nature reserve and upbeat shopping precinct, Ocean Grove is a fantastic place to enjoy the summer or winter days.

The township blends a strong coastal character with all the conveniences. From award winning bakeries to supermarkets, chemists, medical clinics, Japanese antiques and beauty spas, everything you need is here. Lined by tall Norfolk Pines, the main street has restaurants offering Chinese, Thai, Japanese, Italian, Fish and Chips and the best of modern Australian.

The Bellarine Region is just over an hour from Melbourne, making Ocean Grove a very desirable holiday location. Activities on The Bellarine include all the water-based sports and pleasures you can think of – snorkelling, jet-skiing, swimming with dolphins, surfing, kayaking, fishing, marine sanctuaries, sailing and more.

World-class wineries are peppered throughout the area, as are superb restaurants, quaint cafés, fresh local seafood and weekend markets. If food and wine are your passion, then spend some time at local wineries, several of which have award-winning restaurants. The Bellarine has over 25 vineyards and 16 wineries producing cool climate, maritime influenced wines.

For those looking for some fresh air, there are cycling trails, picnic and barbecue areas, playgrounds, golf courses and tennis courts. There is also a great selection of entertainment for children including mini-golf, a 3D timber maze, and a steam train in the Bellarine area. For an adrenaline burst plan a visit to Adventure Park, a state of the art water park featuring giant water slides and activities. Art Galleries and local history museums are sprinkled throughout the Bellarine. Townships are generally not more than 10 kilometres apart.

The Great Ocean Road technically begins at Barwon Heads, but is more widely recognized to start near Torquay, which is a twenty-five minute drive away. Spend a full day travelling from your holiday home to the must see Great Ocean Road and its many towns along the way. Attractions in this area include the Otway Fly, The 12 Apostles, the Great Ocean Road drive, the township of Lorne, and nature walks in the Otway Ranges.
