This beautiful and unusual property is located on the shore of Lake Victoria, one of the set of lakes making up the extraordinary and extensive Gippsland Lakes. The bush-land garden extends to your own private piece of shoreline with fantastic views. In summer you may like to swim, paddle or fish, relax on the wide deck, or even just enjoy the view from the comfort of the lounge. The ever changing lake is always a pleasure to watch. There are local bush walks and lots of photo opportunities here.
The house is striking and unique, consisting of two distinct and separate sections joined by deck. The main building provides a simple but fully equipped kitchen, open plan lounge, dinning, master bedroom (1 queen bed) and spacious bathroom (step down required). The second spacious self-contained bedroom (1 double bed) is separated from the main building by deck, accessed from the car-park by ramp and includes a wheelchair accessible bathroom. Also included is a breakfast bar - kettle, toaster, crockery, fridge, etc. small dining table and private sitting area.
The 'garden' is 3 acers of native Banksia forest with wonderful contorted gum trees and across the lake is the Lakes National Park. This somewhat wild garden is filled with bush-land and water birds - honey-eaters, wrens, owls, swans, sea eagles and many more; and is often visited by the native wildlife including kolas, kangaroo, enchiladas, possums and others. These guys are generally the nosiest thing around in this very tranquil place.
This truly unique and relaxing setting is the perfect place for a recharge or a a very special (maybe even romantic) treat! Get away from your everyday and experience the 'wild' in comfort.
Services, shops, restaurants, coffee, fuel, health services, etc. are about 15-20 minutes away in either Bairnsdale or Paynesville - but the house contains all the necessaries for cooking up a meal if you bring your own ingredients.
At the end of the road (1 km) is the Wattle Point Jetty and boat ramp, and also a lovely beach for walking or an alternative swimming spot. This is also a good place for windsurfing and fishing. There is also a lovely short walk to the point (approximatley 2km) along a bush track featuring native flora including magnificent grass-trees, which starts from just near the front gate. Just down the road (3 km) is the Blond Bay Reserve which contains fabulous diverse native vegetation and yet more wildlife - including Hog deer.
The Gippsland Lakes, Ninety Mile beach, Rivers and Parks of this area provided a abundance of natural attractions but the region is also home to a divers community of arts and crafts people and is gaining a strong reputation for provision of excellent food and wine. In short the region provide fantastic resource for R&R of all varieties.
A Note re Kid and Pets
Being UN-fenced and having a completely separated second bedroom this venue can be a challenging setting for young children. Apologies but there is no secured play area Kids. Older children will love the wildlife, climbing trees and unlimited access to the lake shore, but younger children will required close supervision. Similarly, pets are allowed but will need to be under supervision, on lead or contained, for both their sake and to protect the wildlife. Thank you.
