About the property

The Ultimate Games Room House

Please note, we accept family groups only, this is not a party house.

Freshly renovated and loaded with furniture from Bali in December 2015 we are now ready for guests!. Having owned and operated ‘The Metal House’ which is also in Blairgowrie on stayz for 4 years now we have picked up a thing or two about what makes for a good holiday rental house. Starting this house from scratch has been an opportunity for us to put all that knowledge into practice.

Communal spaces are key for a holiday house to work. Next to the upstairs living room is a 12 seat dining table that can stretch to 14 with 2 chairs bought in from the outside setting. On the deck we have placed a Balinese 10 seat table and chair setting made from recycled boat timber next to a i meter high 200kg Buddha to keep the mood calm and relaxed! We also strongly recommend dragging the beanbags from the downstairs living room up on to the deck on warm nights.

There are 3 bedrooms upstairs all with queen beds in them as well as built in robes. Also upstairs is a bathroom & toilet and the open plan kitchen / lounge / dining area that flows out on to the huge deck through 4 double doors.

Downstairs is a very large bedroom with 3 single bunks and 2 trundles with 3 French doors opening out into a small courtyard. There is another shower and toilet, a laundry (brand new washer & drier) and a large living space with a 6 seater couch and a full HD home cinema projector connected to Foxtel’s premium package (some 90 channels). The screen size is a bit over 150 inches – huge and the picture is EPIC!! Sound comes from a Sony soundbar and woofer.

Lastly downstairs is the games room. We have a ping pong table, a 7 foot long air hockey table, a home gym machine and 2 race car simulators connected to an xbox one and a 55 inch full HD TV. The Xbox is running Forza 6, Microsoft’s latest race car simulator game so you can race against each other at Bathurst, Daytona or dozens of other tracks in dozens of different cars. It’s a lot of fun!! The games room TV is also connected to Foxtel through it’s own box. Also recently fitted to the games room by popular request is a funky retro style bar fridge (-:

Outside there is a huge front yards that is great for cricket, and to the back a small open break out area perched up the hill overlooking the house that is a great spot if you are looking for some peace and quiet.

There is split system cooling and central heating as well as ceiling fans in all upstairs bedrooms and 2 large pedestal fans in the downstairs bedroom. There is also an open fire place upstairs with a large TV above it (also Foxtel connected)

We pride ourselves on providing really memorable holidays for guests staying in our houses. Over the years we have developed a network of professional and reliable tradespeople to keep our houses in top shape. If by chance anything is not 100% perfect when you arrive please notify us and it will be made perfect with breakneck speed.


Rachel & Kurt.

Very tired and dirty

  • 1 of 5

The house is very tired, extremely dirty and dusty. House is advertised as "sparkling clean inside and out". This is not the case. The bedding (mattress protectors, electric blankets and pillows) need to be replaced (which Kurt confirmed will be done) as they were in a disgusting state. The sofas are old, no padding left on the arms and you can feel the timber frame. The oven was too dirty to use. A positive was Kurt who was quick to respond and offered to send the cleaners around again. To his credit, he claimed he had paid for a "deep clean" but this clearly had not been done. Its a huge house and all 11 of us fitted comfortably. The games room is fantastic for the kids but its a shame about the overall state of the house. This could be a great rental (fab location) but it is in dire need of some TLC.

Owner's Response: Nic I am desperately sorry for the condition in which you found my house. Living in Adelaide I rely on my manager and his cleaners to ensure that the place is in tip top shape. Your feedback (that you provided during your stay) resulted in me flying to Melbourne to inspect that house and it is clear that I have been badly let down by my cleaners. I was appalled and very angry at the state my house was in. I wholly understand your reaction. Since your stay I have taken the following action. 1) Found wonderful new cleaners who have spent an entire day at the house getting it back up to spec 2) Replaced all bedding 3) Replaced the couches Again Nic I am genuinely sorry that you did not find my house in the condition that I was being assured it was in (and was paying for!!). With a new manager and new cleaners and procedures I am confident these issues are behind me. Kurt.

Brilliant house

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for a better place to have a break away. Loved the open fire place and so much light upstairs with windows / doors all around. We all had a fantastic time. Something for everyone.

Great house for a group of young people

  • 4 of 5

Good location with a short walk to the bay with cafes and the best fish and chips or a short drive to the back beach. Easy to use facilities and great amenities (wifi, pizza oven and bbq) which made the stay comfortable and enjoyable as well as Foxtel upstairs and downstairs :) prompt replies from the owner and I would say the house is perfect for a big group as it has lots of space and different things to do if you're staying in or going out

the perfect kids holiday house summer or winter!

  • 5 of 5

fun and space for everyone, our 5 kids had a ball these holidays even with bad weather thanks to the great design and planning of this house - kids ran off steam with air hockey, table tennis, climbing trees and loved the bunk room and having their own massive projector to watch movies at night - leaving parents to enjoy wine by open fire upstairs amid tree top views - great pizza oven! These guys have provided a really comfortable fun house for groups or families - thanks a lot - we look forward to coming back in summer when we can enjoy the beach as well :-)
