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. The house is disability friendly - easy to access, with a wide hall and foyer, no inside steps, and double front doors at ground level. 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 20 minute 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. For safety, health and hygiene reasons our policy is to accept a maximum of 2 adult guests per room plus a cot/crib (which we supply) if you have a baby with you.
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 please do enjoy a lazy late check-out to suit yourself - there is no set departure time and absolutely no rush. It's your holiday!
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), where you can enjoy a round with friends and a drink on the patio after the game and perhaps watch a movie on our big screen TV. This quiet rural area is 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.
Close to home you will find tempting restaurants, cafes and shopping, a great golf course and beaches. We are convenient to all local townships, and we are close to the Koonwarra Store and Milly & Romeo's cafe, which serve delicious country cooking with fresh local produce from the nearby farmers markets. Visit local wineries, pubs and restaurants, see Wilsons Promontory National Park and the pristine Squeaky Beach. Cycling, hiking, boating and fishing are very popular here – there is so much see and do, or you can just laze your time away .
Some of our many attractions include:
Local Bush Walks and absolutely beautiful Beaches at Inverloch & Venus Bay
Wineries, Cafes & Restaurants all around the district
Swimming, Cycling (BYO) Surfing,
Australian Grand Prix & Super bike events - Phillip Island
Boat & Kayak hire, skippered tours

Dawn and dusk are the times to be careful as you drive as this is when koalas, wombats, kangaroos and echidnas are on the move - and please do watch out for stray livestock which can sometimes wander onto the roads at any time. But if you prefer to stay indoors, our cosy wood heater will keep you warm all year round, and if you feel like a dance or two just turn on the Jukebox and enjoy our selection of old 45s!
