Overview

About the property

Sensational panoramic views from the Bluff all the way to Port Elliott, Granite Island and Waitpinga. Spectacular sunrises that will take your breath away. Only 1km from Victor Harbor is only 5 mins away.

The property has decking to 3/4 of the house allowing you to entertain outside no matter what the weather is like. Enjoy cooking on the new modern gas BBQ whilst sipping on a glass of wine and taking in the sea air and hopefully catching a glimpse of a whale or two. Whale season June to August.

The house is in a very quiet neighbourhood opposite a reserve, ideal for walking your dog and situated in a very quiet street. It is due to this beautiful serene location and respect for our neighbours that we ask that no parties be held in this house.

This modern 3 bedroom air conditioned home has beautiful Tasmanian Oak flooring, open plan living/kitchen/dining and comes fully equipped with quality furnishings. There are two large flat screen tv's and a generous selection of DVD's for your viewing. We have a Nespresso pod coffee machine and the modern fridge comes with it's own ice maker. The modern kitchen has every appliance you could wish for to make your stay enjoyable. Take in the magnificent views from kitchen, lounge, dining and master bedroom. We also provide books and games for the whole family.

The generous size master bedroom has a wall mounted flat screen TV, walk in robe, sleigh queen bed and access to the front deck, ideal to sit and have your first morning "cuppa". Pull back the curtains in the morning to the most sensational sunrises. You won't want to leave!

$80 cleaning fee applies to each booking together with a $300 bond. Total $380

Please ask if you would like linen to be provided and we can give you the contact details for the local linen supply company. They can deliver both sheets and towels to the property for your stay for a very realistic price. If you are bringing your own linen you will need to bring top and bottom sheets for each bed, pillow cases, tea towels, towels and bath mat.

SORRY NO SCHOOLIES

Please note that this house is not suitable for more than 6 adults. Sorry no smoking inside the house.

If you are planning on partying then this is NOT the house for you. This is a very quiet and safe neighbourhood and our neighbours will report issues such as excessive noise or uncontrollable barking from dogs. Please keep your dog under control at all times. Failure to do so will result in immediate eviction.

Great holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

The view was amazing and the house was immaculate. We stayed in winter and really loved it but we’d love to go back in summer. This house is on our list of places to return to.

Stunning views from a home away from home...

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful view, beautiful house with everything you need & lots of space. Just such a shame there is no 2nd bathroo. The current walk in wardrobe is a waste of valuable space.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response regarding a second bathroom. This is definitely Work In Progress. We planned to use the complete Bed 1 WIR as Ensuite and add a Robe. In addition we plan a games room downstairs and updated rear entertaining area. Guy and Julie Henderson Properties SA

Beautiful Beach House

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Avalon Beach house for a weekend in January and had a lovely time. Everything was very neat and tidy and the view from the house is absolutely amazing! Photos simply do not do it justice! It was very relaxing with outdoor seating areas at both the front and back of the house. This is a great choice for a weekend getaway as it is close to Victor Harbour, for a little excitement, and very tranquil for a bit of a relax.
