About this home

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 for a total of 4 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 manoeuvring 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.

    Retro style, shabby

    House described as retro, which is in keeping with the style, however, the house was in a state of disrepair and not clean. The first thing you noticed upon opening the front door, was an overpowering, mouldy, manky odour. The bedrooms had reasonable bedding but the pillows did not all have internal covers and the pillows were yellow and stained. The spare blankets smelled revolting and could not be used, but were hung outside to air, and remove their odour from the house. Piles of dust under beds and even discarded ear plugs, from previous guests, on bedroom floor. Carpet throughout the house was worn and in many places, completely threadbare. Cracked tiles in bathroom, which was damp with no exhaust fan. Entry steps were not entirely secure. Kitchen was well equipped but nothing could remove the horror of discovering crockery, with a layer of mould. Lovely view over rooftops, of ocean. Beautiful walk to rock, rubble wall, along a busy road, blocking access to beach. Fibreglass seals in gas heater in lounge room, were hanging uselessly inside heater, making it, in my opinion, unsafe to use. Games room described in property description was a shed with a leaky roof, burnt out, rusted, unusable pot belly stove. This house was in a reasonable location with plenty of potential, however, it appears, that there is no accountability or checks on quality. The house commanded a high price, way above the quality of the accommodation. I have many photos to support my claims, unfortunately there is no capacity for them to be uploaded in this review. As a result of this unpleasant experience, I would be reluctant to book, through Stayz, in future.

    Comfortable retro stay

    We had a nice stay over the Christmas break. Beautiful views, and very cool retro furniture gives the place a bit of character. Bathroom and garage with table tennis needs updating, & the hot water would run out by night, which we were warned about, but overall, a very pleasant stay. Thanks Dennis
