we love this because…

This Portsea beach house accommodation is so unassuming from the outside, with its impressive front door being the only hint at a house from the road.  But it is so close to everything you need for a beach holiday.

The pounding ocean beaches are within walking distance but take care to swim between the flags at all times.

We love being in the house as it wraps around a central courtyard, and the focus is a heated in-ground pool where we can’t get the kids to leave no matter what we offer.  We cook up a BBQ and laze in the outdoor lounge, creating our very own poolside piazza.

It’s so cool in summer and cosy warm in winter.

We hardly use our car, we walk the short distance to the newly renovated Portsea Hotel for stunning food and great views and a perfect holiday vibe.

We grab our coffee from Le Capucin and stroll across the lawn to take in the views of the bay.  For the adventurous among us, we always book a dolphin swim, kayak or snorkelling session with BayPlay because you just can’t beat being on the water (at any time of year).

On warm winter days, we choose between the Farnsworth Track, Point Nepean or the Millionaires walk(where we get a sneak peek into how the rich and famous live by walking through their front gardens…for real, absolutely allowed).

*Please note the swimming pool is heated between November and April only.  




What fun! a new house to visit that lets four-legged friends like me sleep inside.

The courtyard garden doesn’t have any grass so I always get a walk to tire me out. But there is a shady area at the side of the house that my ‘hoomans’ leave me when they go out, so I don’t get too hot and I can feel safe.

And there’s a special basket just for me. No way!  What’s in there?   Ooh, ooh! a treat from PAWDINKUM.  I LOVE THIS PLACE.

Great place to stay, well positioned and the pool in the middle of the courtyard very well designed.

Great beach house a short walk from Portsea hotel and the beach. The place had everything you need and was spotlessly clean. I’d recommend and will be back. The company who manage the house are extremely helpful and very good at communication and instructions.

Great property in fab location. We loved our stay and the incredible service from staff prior, during and after our stay. We will definitely stay again.

Just what we needed over the Easter school holidays. Perfectly located with easy walking distance to the Portsea Hotel, local coffee shops and the beach. Immaculate throughout and fantastic to have the swimming pool.
