About Tracey Ollis

Tracey & Mac live in inner city Melbourne, Mac's beach house is their holiday retreat.

Tracey Ollis purchased this house in 2011

Why Tracey Ollis chose Ventnor

After many years of holidays with our kids at beautiful Phillip Island, we decided to buy a property close to the beautiful bay beach at Ventnor. We bought the property, to give us a balance between our very busy lives at work and to have some where to relax, rest and play.

Relaxed and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a week in June, with the fire going the house was warm and cozy, the house is well situated, very quiet, being just a short walk to the beach, I spent hours each day walking with the dogs. It’s a short drive to Cowes to get supplies. Everything in house was easy and simple to use. The dogs and l loved it, would highly recommend.

Loved the Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Just thought I’d catch up after our lovely holiday at your house. The house was lovely. The perfect size for the two of us and lovely and safe for our little dog, so we were able to feel comfortable leaving her in the yard. It was a nice distance from the beach and felt like a safe beach for a swim (I’m not into surf beaches, so it was perfect). The house and yard felt private and protected. We loved the big trees. The big couch in the lounge was sooooo comfortable and we loved the splash of colour and quirky bits and pieces in the house and agreed it was much nicer to be in a real house rather than an apartment. The kitchen had everything we needed for our stay and the bedrooms were clean and comfortable. We didn’t use the fold out couch, but it was a ‘nice to have’. The decking was a great space to sit and the fire pit a nice feature to have. We did loads of stuff:

• Swimming every day, watching telly, eating out and eating in, BBQ and take out.

• Played games – Monopoly, chess

• Lit the fire pit – just for the fun of it.

• Went to the Nobbies and to see the ship wreck at low tide

• Visited friends who live in Cowes (they are the lucky ones)

• Watched DVDs

Overall, we had a great time and will come back again.

Wonderful weeks stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week long stay at Macs Beach House. The house is very comfortable and has everything you need. We had variable weather and it was very warm and cosy to sit around the wood fire when we weren't out and about. The backyard is a delight and my daughter enjoyed hours of reading in the hammock.The house is situated only a few streets back from the lovely beach at Ventnor, making it easy to get up for a few sunrise shots and take the dog during the appropriate times on the beach. Love the feel of Ventnor and even though it was school holidays, it was till very quite.

Highly recommended for value, location and cosy charm. Lovely owners too.

Wonderful dog friendly beach house

  • 4 of 5

Great earthy feel to this beach house. Very relaxing & quiet location but close to everything. We had such a relaxing holiday & our dogs just loved the very short walk to the fabulous beach. The owners were awesome to deal with - really welcoming. We will definitely come back.

Reasonably priced beach house in lovely Ventnor!

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable stay and everything you need besides linen. Great yard for dogs and not far to beach. Has lots of games, books, DVD's and air conditioning. Positive - well priced for holiday period. Negative - realised when home we left our IPad behind inside house and was not found which put a dampener on our stay but owner has tried best to locate.
