Our guests enjoy the peaceful quiet location, spectacular ever-changing water views and abundant bird life. Clean and comfortable 1970s home with everything you need for a relaxing stay with all of Port Albert's amenities within walking distance.
Port Albert is a quiet, peaceful and pretty historic fishing village 215kms from Melbourne. At Port Albert Waterview Retreat, you can relax on the front verandah and take in the panoramic views of the Nooramunga Marine and Coastal Park, and Wilson's Promontory in the distance. You will love the peace and quiet of this secluded, fully self-contained, three-bedroom holiday house.
The uninterrupted water views with Wilson's Prom in the distance are a feature of the house, and they can be enjoyed from the living room and two main bedrooms, as well as the front verandah. You can also view a wide variety of bird life on the waters of the Park, and the spectacular sunsets are not to be missed.
Nestled in a quiet street on half an acre of garden and lawn, the house has accommodation for six. It is ideal for adult couples or a family, with two queen-size bedrooms and one bedroom with two single beds. There is plenty of room for storage in the built-in wardrobes and chest of drawers. We can supply a port-a-cot and high chair upon request.
The fully-equipped 1970s kitchen has everything - from a dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, wall oven, grill, cook-top, kettle, and toaster, mini oven, through to cutlery, crockery, glassware, and saucepans.
The luxury bathroom has a freestanding bath tub ideal for a soak after a day's activities as well as a separate shower. The house has one toilet which is located off the laundry. The laundry has a tub and a washing machine and there is plenty of undercover clothes line as well as an outdoor clothes line.
In winter, relax in front of the Coonara wood-heater and soak up its warmth. Wood is supplied and is located in the woodshed through the carport. For your entertainment, the living room also has plenty of books and games, as well as a colour TV, DVD, and portable radio/CD player.
Outside, you will find a hooded BBQ and outdoor furniture, room for 2 cars under the carport, and plenty of room to park and turn your boat/s elsewhere on the property.
The property is not fenced and is therefore not suitable for most pets.
Port Albert Waterview Retreat is just 400 metres from the Port Albert boat ramp. The Old Port Walking Trail passes the front door and leads to Stockyard Point and the wharf.
