Description from owner


Nestled amongst the tree tops in a quiet, secluded part of Venus Bay, The Magic Beach Cottage is a lovely 2-bedroom house within walking distance of nearby beaches. The house is named after a children's book written by a Venus Bay local!

Just a 20 minute drive from Inverloch and a 30 minute drive from Leongatha, the house backs onto the dunes of the beautiful Cape Liptrap Coastal Park and the long stretches of beach in Venus Bay. The Doyles Road (Anderson Inlet) beach is just a few minutes drive away, and is a safer swimming option for children. It also offers a designated dog off leash area all year round.

The house features an open plan living/kitchen/dining area that looks out onto the spacious deck and the tree tops of Cape Liptrap Coastal park. It offers a fully equipped kitchen with stove, oven, a full-sized fridge and even a coffee maker. At night or for those times you'd like to stay in, there is a 107cm satellite TV, a Blu Ray player, books and board games to keep you and your family thoroughly entertained. You can relax in the sunshine on the large open deck overlooking the tree tops, or cook up a BBQ in the covered outdoor area.

The 2 bedrooms can comfortably sleep 6 people. Bedroom 1 sleeps 2, has a double bed and looks out onto the deck and spectacular tree tops. Bedroom 2 sleeps 4, has a double bed and bunk bed suitable for children. Bed linen is provided for your convenience.

The house features reverse cycle air-conditioning, a wood combustion heater for those chilly nights, fans and double glazed windows to keep the temperature as desired. And if you'd like to do some laundry a washing machine is also available.

For fishing enthusiasts, there is a boat ramp with a jetty a 10-minute walk. The beach at Doyles Road offers inlet fishing or you can beach fish on any of the Venus Bay beaches. There is a tackle and bait shop located in the township. Tarwin Lower boasts several boardwalks along the picturesque Tarwin River with another boat ramp. The Magic Beach Cottage is excited to welcome you to your next perfect getaway. Note: Please note that we require a deposit of 20 percent of total amount to confirm your booking. Please feel free to ask us about our cancellation policy when you book. ___

Some reviews from other sites. It was called Summer Breeze under previous management:

"The beach house had everything you could possibly need. A tv to watch outside, an outdoor heater on the deck and an amazing seating area on the decks to sit and relax. The kids also loved it with lots of room in the living areas for them to play."

"Be careful with the atmosphere, it will take you by surprise. Everything was there that you would need to never leave."

“Would definitely recommend!!! Noisy wombat. Lovely home"
