This space is a true haven, a true escape...

There were plans to renovate, or rebuild completely, but internal spaces are so original, and so relaxing, that it only took a layering of modern comforts to make it a comfortable, low-maintenance weekend escape.

In an attempt to bring a little more romance, in December 2016 We added an exclusive outdoor bathroom featuring custom imported finishes, and beautiful Cocoon Eco Fire. All yours to indulge in and enjoy.

The art is original, and many furniture pieces have been commissioned by local artisan's - the side and coffee tables, the dining room centrepiece and the handles all locally produced.

Vintage European furniture by Cappellini and Erkhol, and accessories from travels all over the world have been used to finish the space. A Bang & Olufsen sound system drives the mood.

Candles, essential oils, and unique lighting ensure the space can be tailored to whatever mood you're in.

The television is connected to a DVD player and XBOX. We have not connected the antenna - you're at the beach, get out there!

Children's toys, drawing equipment & board games sit awaiting a rainy day, as do a diverse range of cook books, cooking equipment & design magazines...

Complimentary Whisky and Port await your call for a night cap, and fresh coffee will get you up in the morning. NOTE the kitchen does NOT feature an OVEN - I use the bbq or fire pit to roast!

If possible, sleep with the window open, the sound the ocean is the best....

Guest access
The entire house is yours to enjoy.

Pets are welcome (outside only please, there is an undercover deck to ensure they stay warm and dry), as are your relatives!

All linen is included, though we ask that guests bring along their own beach towels....

Smoking is not permitted inside the house.

Other things to note
I am a keen traveller, and photographer. All art in Tea Tree Hill is shot on my travels, and available for purchase. Drop me a line if you like any of the pieces, or would like to see more!

Top up with supplies at the Tarwin Lower IGA, or prior at the coles or Woolworths in Leongatha.

The Fish & chip shop in Venus bay is a must! Get it takeaway, and head to the inlet, or back to the beach to enjoy a sunset.

A kayak is available for use, as are yoga mats, and exercise equipment for a morning workout on the deck.

Mosquitoes can be bad at Venus Bay - be prepared!

Venus Bay, Victoria, Australia

Venus Bay remains the quintessential beach escape. There is so much of 'nothing' to enjoy! Bordered by the inlet on one side, and wild (or beautifully calm (dependant on the day or hour!) Bass Strait on the other, you are guaranteed wonderful coastal scapes.

The inlet (accessed from the boat ramp of the second estate, or any of the parking area's along Tarwin river, is a haven for great fishing, bird watching, or straight out relaxing...

Watch the Bay for rips and currents - Venus has a reputation as a wild stretch of coast. Swim within your limits, or head up to the patrolled beach zone in Beach #1. If the wind is up, head down the road to Walkerville - facing the opposing direction, and with fantastic views of the prom, it's a must!

I'm an avid traveller with a long bucket list! I love a good adventure, and dream of far flung places... A night in a tent is as memorable to me as a five star hotel...I believe to truly experience a new environment, you need to be fully immersed in it - that's led to some interesting experiences, sleeping on the deck of a yacht, under tarps in the Tasmanian wilderness, & hanging off a cliff face in Nepal... That is the essence of travel to me - immersive experience. I am a cyclist, a skier, an architectural enthusiast and a keen photographer. I escape the city every week for a new experience. I began the airbnb hosting journey with a beautiful 60's beach shack, Tea Tree Hill, in 2016... It's popularity was unexpected and led to me offering my compact, but luxury apartment, Malvern Hill Modern. More recently, I've partnered with my parents, Rella and Richard, to offer a wonderful Mountain home, Sylvan Rise - a property I use as my base for outdoor pursuits. Each property offers it's own unique character, directly reflecting their environment, but each offer a similar level of style and luxury, something that resonates heavily with me. I look forward to meeting you, and sharing these special homes with you.
