Close to local shopping centre to access food and shopping. A short drive to Ocean Ggrove main beach area and shops. The property has a basketball court area and balls were supplied and plenty of other games in the backyard and games room The property doesn’t mention on the advertisement but it has WiFi and the main TV has FOXTEL and Netflix - the two Main bedrooms have TV’s as well Great Lounge outside with a bar table and stools and a Weber bbq No access to garage to park car so parking in driveway and street parking only.

We stayed for 4 nights to visit family nearby. Close to all points of interest. Property had everything we needed and was clean, tidy and very well kept. Bedrooms were a great size and the ceiling fans were much appreciated. Large front yard for the kids to play in. Very quiet. There were some books in the lounge room that you could read and a very well equipped kitchen. Washing machine and clothes line came in very handy. Overall loved our stay and would definitely stay there again. Stacey, 29/12/20 (Summer Dreams)

"This place has 6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms so is fabulous for a big group. It’s located in a lovely quiet part of Barwon Heads in a lovely setting surrounded by trees - it feels really remote and yet you can walk to both the cafes and to 13th beach. The house is showing its age a little, but the beds are comfortable and the facilities good. Great to stay somewhere where there are more than enough plates, glasses etc for a big group."
