Imagine your family and friends relaxing in this much loved, classic 1950s beach house. Situated in a semi-rural location within a magnificent 5 acre garden setting, with expansive lawns & European style gardens, enclosed by Skenes Creek where you can fish for trout or paddle down to the beach. This property is set-back 200 metres from the surf at the Skenes Creek Beach, giving privacy and access.
Guests can also wander through the orchard, where lemons and apples grow in abundance, or can observe koalas and other wild life over the creek. You can also enjoy the rustic tennis court or play cricket or croquet on the rolling lawns. You will love the privacy, location, peace and tranquility on offer at Willowhaven, as well as everything you expect of a traditional beach holiday.
Enjoy a picnic and a glass of wine at one of the many spots dotted along the tree lined creek bank, in the outdoor BBQ area, or on the large balcony overlooking the garden. The expansive and picturesque garden surrounds have also provided the perfect back drop for weddings and other functions, and many other successful and memorable events.
A short 5 minute drive will see you at Chris Beacon Point restaurant where you can indulge your passion for fine dining with family/friends. A 6 kilometre drive away is Apollo Bay, where you can sample the delights of the many cafes/restaurants in the town centre, play a round of golf, stock up with essential items from one of the two supermarkets, or buy or rent your fishing and beach gear.
The main property features 4 bedrooms for 8 people (plus a timber cottage for 5 adults or children), main bathroom, laundry, 2 dining areas, kitchen, 2 lounge areas, parking for 4/5 vehicles and all the items you will ever need to enjoy your holiday.
