Overview

About the property

elevated 2 bedroom [comfy queen beds] holiday home on the outskirts of portland

This 1970's elevated, retro holiday home is a wonderful mix of homely accommodation and stunning water views from the living areas, kitchen and bedrooms. Two sides of the house have floor-to-ceiling windows so the changes in the weather make visitors feel part of nature. At night, the lights of the wharf and the town of Portland shine in the windows and the quiet street makes you feel relaxed when you wake up to a sunrise over Portland Bay.

It is great to cook in this functional kitchen with good bench space flowing into an open living area. The view here extends to Cape Bridgewater 25 km away. The 2 bedrooms have great water views and queen-sized beds, while extra fold-out beds are available for 2 more guests.

At the end of the street, just 6 houses down, there is a picturesque 200 step walkway leading down to the beach for lovers of fishing, swimming, ocean strolls and a dog-friendly beach.

Downstairs, there is a gas BBQ, gas heater and table setting, with a second toilet, and adjacent is the separate garage in the rear yard set up with a pool table, table tennis and a pot belly heater.

The wide driveway can hold up to 4 vehicles or boats, and there is an additional parking space out front, so there is no need to move the Kingswood to get the Ford out. This street location ensures very little traffic so maneuvering boats out is an easy task. The boat ramp is a leisurely 5-minute drive. as is the Main Street in town.

The rear yard is fenced and gated, and suitable for children and dogs alike.

Rare Find: Ocean views, large boat access, pet friendly, well equipped, very clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

It is not easy these days to find a holiday home which provides for a large trailer boat and pets.

We found this great quiet house in Portland which suited our needs perfectly.

We had great views of Portland Bay and the Harbour from the lounge, dining and bedrooms.

The house was very clean and comfortable making any length of stay that much more enjoyable. The kitchen was fully equipped including dishwasher and basic grocery items. Additional towels and blankets were provided. A seperate laundry with washing machine came in handy.

The back yard was secure and accessible. The driveway was wide and long allowing for one or more large trailer boats to be parked off street easily and securely.

Highly recommend.
