Spectacular views from the cliff top and immediate access to a very beautiful and safe beach. Your private room will only be disturbed by the sound of the waves landing on the beach at night.
The owner will be living at the house and so the experience will be shared. The local attractions and the best way to enjoy the area will be readily available. see detailed explanation below.
The guests will enjoy the BBQ, the outdoor deck area and the outdoor bathroom (including bath) and possibly mountain bikes, and sea kayaks depending on skills.
Interaction with the guests will be influenced by the shared kitchen and dining and some of the living space.
A superb view across Waratah Bay toward Wilsons Promontory from its unique vantage point at South Walkerville is potentially the main draw card of this property. Then add the short walking track access to a safe swimming beach, surfing, fishing, diving, windsurfing, kayaking, wildlife spotting and the feel that you are a million miles from the worries of home and you are closer to understanding what is on offer at this secluded home.
South Walkerville is two hours drive from Melbourne and (30 minutes) drive from Wilson’s Prom National Park at the southern most tip of the Australian Mainland in southwest Gippsland. South and North Walkerville sit on beautiful Waratah Bay and at low tide it is possible to ride a bike from south Walkerville point the 15 km along the beach to Sandy Point, surf beach.
The House sits on the waterside of the road down to south Walkerville beach with a timber deck that takes full vantage of the view across to Wilson’s Prom. The deck offers a BBQ, outdoor furniture, and a ladder climb to a higher rooftop deck with a spectacular aspect of the bay, the moon and the rising sun. There is a shared basic kitchen in an open plan lounge room with windows along its full length to make the most of the views.
Guest Facilities include a private bedroom with a Queen size bed, and a double bunk and a private bathroom. Guests are welcome to join the owner in the main house at their leisure with full access to the kitchen facilities. There is yard space with direct access to walking tracks.
Surrounding towns include the artistic enclave of Fish Creek, with galleries, coffee shops and a popular and much loved pub. Foster is the best serviced of the local towns with two supermarkets, bakeries, more cafes and retail outlets, hardware, a medical centre and a hospital.
The house rules will simply be to enjoy your time and act in a respectful way. Details of the way the house operates will be available on arrival and are pretty standard. No pets nor smoking please.
I love the ocean and to sit on the cliffs and be able to watch it change as each day passes. It's just great. I love to snorkel and scuba, I have a few kayaks on site and love to escape. An evening meal of fresh abalone on the deck with friends and a glass of wine is just the perfect end to another day at Walkerville South.
