The SpacePLEASE NOTE: Air BnB requires each room to be listed separately so if you require 2 rooms you will need to access both of our Country home, Golf Course, Beaches listings. This listing is Room 2 of 2.
Welcome to our home - our aim is to help make your stay as memorable as possible. We are friendly and outgoing, and we just love having visitors stay to be spoiled. We love to travel (the USA & Japan are tops on our list) and we know how important it is, wherever you stay, that you enjoy warm and tranquil surroundings with hosts who really care.
We are an in touch, young at heart couple with 3 grown sons and 3 wonderful grandchildren. Hosting has been a dream of ours for some time, and now that we have the time we're loving it! We have met so many travellers and made such wonderful friends from all over the world.
We invite you to explore the sights, take in some retail therapy, chat with locals in the pub, or simply rest and relax. We thank you for the privilege of hosting you, we look forward to meeting you, and we know that when you visit this beautiful country, you will understand why so many choose to call Australia home.
Immaculate and modern, this quiet farmhouse property is central to all major tourist destinations, or if you prefer, perfect for a gentle, unhurried rest. Our single level house is disability friendly - easy to access, with a wide hall and foyer, no steps, and double front entry doors. We have two rooms available. Both rooms are very private and separate from all living space, each with a personal en suite / bathroom and walk in shower. The bathrooms are always freshly stocked with soaps, shampoo, large fluffy towels, hair dryer - all your bathroom needs. The showers have excellent water pressure with lots of HOT water, and with no time restrictions a good long shower is always welcome after a day at the beach or hiking at Wilson's Prom! All our guests have praised our warm and comfy beds, and we boast quiet rural views.
Breakfast is what we call Continental Plus, light and fresh but always filling, and is prepared for you at your convenience. If you have special dietary requirements (vegan, vegetarian, diabetic, gluten free) please let us know before you arrive and we will ensure they are available for you. Our price per room includes twin share and breakfast for two - and if you have time please do enjoy a lazy late check-out to suit yourself - there is no set departure time and absolutely no rush.
Situated mid-way between Phillip island and Wilsons Promontory National Park, we have a peaceful 2 acres between the Three Springs Beef Farm and the Leongatha South 18 hole Tournament graded Golf Course (literally next door) surrounded by farmland, yet easily accessible to major tourist attractions, so if you are looking for a "time out" relaxing holiday, or a base to explore the region, this is the spot for you. Plenty of free parking is available on site.
