Ocean Views, Metung
Best Rate Guaranteed!
we love this because…
As we drive into Metung and catch our first glimpse of Chinamans Creek with boats and yachts securely moored in the still blue water we feel the cares of the world drop away.
There is always a sense of excitement as we open the door of The Mariner and enter a different world. A world of ships and history where you can be the captain of your own adventure.
We love the dark moody hallway as you enter reminiscent of the lower deck steerage on a boat with cabin numbers on the doors and interiors that can take you to the 1940s.
Walking up the steps to the dark and moody Captains Quarters with portraits of the infamous ‘Sea Dogs’ and a cosy fire, built in bookcase and day bed. We pick out a book that sends us back to our childhood and curl up under the reading lamp. On sunny days we open the doors and sit on the deck looking out to the lake and the water.
On the upper level the light and bright lounge is reminiscent of an ocean liners deck complete with lifejacket and water hose. Such a beautiful light an bright space with dining and a galley style kitchen.
On this level is the master suite with four poster bed and window seat, the first class ‘cabin’ with ensuite.
For the best lunch or dinner, we take a short stroll to the Metung Hotel (locally known as the Pub) and always book a table with a view. Its always bustling so you have to book. For breakfast, we eat at Aroma Coffee House or we head into Lakes Entrance and buy fresh prawns off the boats and come back and sit outside with local wine and feast.
What fun! a new house to visit that lets (SMALL) four-legged friends like me sleep inside.
Yay! a garden and courtyard with fences to keep me safe. Love the trees and bushes there are lots of interesting smells. Are those possums, koalas and kookaburras in the trees?
I LOVE THIS PLACE.

We loved our stay at the Mariner. the property was immaculately presented with very comfy couches and beds. Thoughtful touches, great styling with quirky, humorous touches made it a house with character and personality. It was refreshing to stay to stay in a place with style and taste! We felt very pampered. Thanks Ocean Blue Just a note - there are lots of stairs & levels so if you or your pooch have difficulty negotiating stairs you may be better off selecting another Ocean Blue property

Our stay at The Mariner was just perfect. We all loved how it was decorated in the nautical theme. It s in a great location near Chinamen's Creek and walking distance to the township along the boardwalk. We stayed in winter and loved spending time relaxing in front of the fire drinking red wine and playing board games. 5 star review from our family xxx

'A beautiful place, perfectly styled and equiped with all we could need for our stay. The thoughtful little touches to make us and our four legged friend feel so welcome was nice. Excellent communication. We will highly recommend this place to friends. 10/10 stay!'

What a lovely, welcoming home in Metung. Our family stay (two adults, one 9 year old and a grandmother!) was made so comfortable and cosy -- we wished we could have stayed longer. Not only is the house gorgeously decorated, the beds and furniture are very comfortable and the kitchen is fully equipped. The view was the highlight for me, whether enjoying my breakfast on a sunny morning or watching the rain come down on a wet afternoon. Add the fire on the lower deck and a glass of wine and you are in heaven! We love Metung regardless, but this property made us not want to leave!

The Mariner is a beautifully thought out property, perfect for a relaxing getaway. It has everything you may need and you feel at home as soon as you walk in. Would definitely stay again (it was perfect for a girls weekend)!

Outstanding property which is the perfect mix of cosy but spacious. There are so many thoughtful touches throughout and the beds were so comfortable. The backyard was also so beautiful. However, the best part was the view from the top level and the balcony.
