About the property

If you're looking for a unique and tranquil setting just 90 minutes from the heart of Melbourne and only 20 minutes to the beach, relax, you've found the Bena Farmhouse. Whether it's a family getaway or a couples retreat, there is something truly special about this place and from the moment you arrive you'll feel it. Time just seems to slow down.

The 1950's farmhouse is on 1.5 acres and sits within hundreds of hectares of additional grazing property. The house is homely and full of character with a fireplace, chiminea and enclosed porch - the best vantage point to share a drink and take in the amazing views. The surrounding gardens are a labour of love.

The Farmhouse has a brand new country kitchen with oven, hotplates, Dishwasher and retro dining. There are three bedrooms complete with divine Hungarian Goose down doonas (2 x Queen, 1 x single bunk set).

The bathroom has a shower over bath while the lounge has a beautiful chesterfield couch, chairs, TV, movies and games. Outside; the property features native and cottage gardens that are home to a variety of birds, butterflies and wildlife; while the organic vegetable garden and orchard provides some inspiration. For the kids (including BIG kids!); there’s room to run, trees to climb & endless jumping on the biggest trampoline in the world! The Farmhouse is also home to three friendly Alpacas: Carlos, Javier and Eduardo & chickens for a fresh supply of breakfast eggs!

Lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing stay at this beautiful property, I was happy to just sit on the back deck with the fire going admiring the view. We did venture out though to Wilsons Prom and Phillip Island. The house had everything in it that we could possibly want and the beds were comfortable and warm.

Beautiful country stay!

  • 4 of 5

Our family shared Easter at the Bena Farmhouse and it was all that we expected and more from a farm stay. The house was comfortable, kitchen well equipped and the beds lovely and comfy. The kids loved picking in season fruit and veggies from the garden and playing hide and seek as well as feeding the Alpacca's and collecting eggs from the chooks. My highlight was enjoying a glass of wine in the early evening in front of the Chiminea on the porch watching the sun set over the beautiful rolling hills. The kids enjoyed their visit from the Easter Bunny which made for a very memorable early morning(in the dark with torch provided) easter egg hunt ... will return one day for sure!

Perfect little spot.

The kids highlights were feeding the animals, hunting for eggs and foraging for tomatoes in the garden!

My wife and my highlight was firing up the Chimenea and settling in to savoring a few of the local wares from the Loch Distillery and Brewery.

Brilliant Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for the wonderful weeks stay at the farmhouse, we all had a brilliant time, the place is just divine. A well needed rest for our family, our son just loved the property as did we too.

Not having spent a lot of time in South Gippsland before, we found lots to do, bike track a plenty and the local towns really interesting. A beautiful spot you have there, and we could appreciate all the hard work that you have put into the garden and setting it up.

Being able to pick food from the garden and eggs from the chickens was such a treat.
