A simple spacious beach house at Kilcunda 3995 Victoria, with beautiful ocean view. Kilcunda is an idyllic wondrous ocean front small town & just approximately 28km to Philip Island & 110km from Melbourne CBD.
The house is a wonderful spot/base to hike, cycle, boat, paraglide, swim, surf, & fish, scenic drive or to just chill in an Aussie style beach living. There is a popular Killy Pub and The General Store round the corner. It is akin to the Great Ocean Road kinda living and activities.
The beach house is well positioned on the "Bluff Side" of the Kilcunda, with immediate walk access to the spectacular George Bass Coastal Walk. The Bluff Side is atop the cliffs of the Bass Coast, a wonderful base for a Great Ocean Road like kind of coastal holiday and living.
**Note: The lease rate is for Master Bedroom only. If wish to rent the entire house, minimum guests are 5 person (including the two for Master Bedroom) - meaning the guests after the 2 persons (of Master Bedroom) pay the extra guest rate each as listed. Feel free to message me if you need further clarification.
Other outdoor options are a plenty:

If you would like a break from cooking in our well-equipped kitchen, head down to the electic Kilcunda General Store for breakfast or lunch. Meals are also available at the historic Kilcunda (Australian-Style) Pub 7 days a week all year round or explore the vicinity epicurean options [that include local cheese factory, CurryHouse at Woolamai, Gusto Gelateria at Wonthaggi (nearby town) or various wonderful options at San Remo & Phillip Island ]
You can access the deck and backyard for BBQ or make your own wood oven pizza. You and guests are also welcomed to chill at the deck and enjoy the vista view or stroll/play at the backyard. Native birds watching is also quite simple pleasure in this area. **Take special care, especially children, when playing at the backyard-garden as the terrain is undulating and there are various garden wooden beds as well plants that can be safety hazards**.
You are also welcome to also pitch a tent, lie and gaze at stars at night.
My passionate fisherman friend, Doros, can conduct a fantastic fishing outing if you are interested. This region is fishermen haven.
I could assist to arrange Uber-like services for car transportation if required. Best to rent or have a car as an option to get about, even though you can get around places by walking or cycling. Two no-frills bicycles are parked at the house where you could use on pro-bono basis. Yoga Mats by the fireplace.
Weekends are usually busy at the Kilcunda Pub and General Store. Plan early for meals if you intend to chill out at the Pub especially on weekends. Nevertheless, plenty of options in vicinity, including San Remo or Wonthanggi (two nearest towns, approximately 10 to 15 mins drive).
Not to be missed are the October Motor GP at Phillip Islands, Summer season of open sea challenge at San Remo/Woolamai/Phillip Island. Running Wild 17k or Half marathon in February.

***if booking through instant book, please understand that all terms must be met. You must be more flexible with your check in times. We are happy to welcome you! Please accurately put the amount of guests. Incorrect bookings may be subject to cancellation or a higher rate.
**NOTE: Though our check-in and check-out times are very flexible, it is important to understand that many times, we have guests back to back. This means, if you are coming in on a red-eye flight and are arriving early in the morning, the previous guest may still be occupying the rooms until 12noon. As we work and are not a full-time business (just a couple renting out rooms to meet awesome travelers), we may not be able to change the sheets and thoroughly clean the room until later in the evening. If you are concerned about your schedule, please inquire. We may be able to have to room empty and ready by the time of your arrival by not booking for the night before. Additionally, because of time constraints, we may ask that you be packed up and out of the house by 12n. You are always welcome to leave your bags, especially for those guests who have late evening flights (Who wants, or COULD, drag all that gear around?!). Thank you so much in advance for your understanding and flexibility!
