Architect designed, floor to ceiling glass, all the latest appliances and mod cons. This is not us.
What we lack in the above we make up for in rustic charm, cozy beach atmosphere and talk about the LOCATION. If you were any closer to the beach your feet would be wet. 100 meters to the beach, 100 meters to the general store and surf shop. It's a great house.
Enter the downstairs back door through the laundry, bathroom, separate toilet and 3 bedrooms. 1 with 2 single beds, one with a bunk and extra mattress under and one with a double/ single bunk. Upstairs to the open plan living/ dining/ kitchen area, another bathroom and of course the magical views. The couch folds out to a very comfortable double bed.
The kitchen is stocked with all the basics, salt pepper, herbs, butter, Vegemite etc. Sometimes a loaf of bread or maybe a bottle of wine or a few beers. If you run out of something, please replace it or leave money in the honesty jar in the fridge. There will be enough food to cobble together your first meal. Great for those arriving late!
Smiths beach is one of Victoria's safest surf beaches and the surf shop will rent you all you need or give you a lesson. There is a rocky reef either side of the beach offering great fishing opportunities. The outside shower is great for getting sand off before coming inside.
You can hear the roar of bikes or cars from the Grand Prix track most weekends if the wind is right. It is a 3km walk to gate 4 or the shuttle bus leaves from the top of the road.
There is a BBQ in the carport and gas bottle in the shed. Key for shed is in the laundry. If you use it please clean it.
The downside to being so close to the beach is the windows fog up with salt almost daily. It hoses off easily if you want but we have given up keeping them clean ;-)
