Loved by holidaymakers for generations, idyllic Portarlington is only 1.5 hour’s drive from Melbourne. This 50s classic is in an unbeatable location; the private, elevated position offers expansive views to the Portarlington beach below, and back towards Corio Bay and Geelong. A delight for guests of all ages, the nostalgia of the period evokes images of halcyon seaside family holidays and simple pleasures... admire the views, play in the garden, walk to the beach and eat ice cream, of course

The space
Home to magnificent beaches and sparkling views over Corio Bay, this classic bayfront gem is in close proximity of to all the attractions of the Bellarine and the Geelong region.

What better way to spend your time than outside on the fantastic covered entertaining deck? It affords great views of the bay and is the perfect place for outdoor meals and entertaining. Full of whimsy, the garden is a delight for children to explore!

The Bay and its walking trails are at the end of the street, offering opportunities for daily strolls along the water’s edge, where fisherman and birdlife land their catch. Tucked away in a private, non-thoroughfare street, the neighbouring reserve and parkland offers boundless room for activity. Walk to the town centre for the supermarket, shops and cafes in only 800m, where you can enjoy the wide range of dining options within a few minutes. Coming from Melbourne? Why not board the Portarlington<>Docklands ferry for a wonderful trip across the bay and easy walk to the house?

Featuring a well-appointed kitchen with essential appliances and a coffee machine, it has everything you need for holiday cooking.

The lounge room is also characterised by original features and polished timber floors, with leather lounge suites to relax and enjoy a movie (Smart TV/Netflix connectivity) - this area has split system heating and cooling, plus a ceiling fan, and adjoins the sunny deck. Take in the bay vista and breathtaking sunsets from the covered outdoor dining area, with a BBQ and outdoor setting for casual meals.
