Free Wifi and Television available. Electric blanket provided in winter for main bed. Well appointed full kitchen, bar and dining area and much much more. Our family comprises of hubby, myself & 21 yr old son, an old loving dog, a 1 yr old indoor cat; 16 chooks and 1 reindeer outdoors. Lots of wild ducks, birdlife around the dam surrounded by beautiful white lilies when in season. This freestanding bungalow has its own entry but the main house is far enough to ensure your privacy. 15 mins from Victoria's biggest provincial township of Geelong with its spectacular waterfront, shops and eateries,15 mins drive to Ocean Grove & Barwon Heads surf beaches, quaint Portarlington, Queenscliff and mins to nearby renowned wineries such as Jack Rabbit, Leura Park, Flying Brick & many more others. We are also mins to many local golf courses with beautiful settings, there is also 'Mini Golf' for the beginners. Close to facilities including numerous selections of supermarkets including Aldi, banks, medical centres, post office, cafes, Music cafes, restaurants etc. You will find delight in the weekly fabulous markets with local produce and handicrafts, rotating around the area. Car is a necessity or 15-20 mins walk to bus stop for public transport to Geelong and surrounding areas such as Ocean Grove, Clifton Springs, Curlewis, Indented Heads, Barwon Heads, Point Lonsdale and Queenscliff. With just an hr's train ride into the big smoke of Melbourne from Geelong or a ferry ride over to Melbourne's Docklands where you can catch free trams all around Melbourne CBD to savour the cities multicultural cuisines, art galleries, shows, sporting events, etc. you will have the best experience of both rural and city worlds. Check out (URL HIDDEN) for events throughout the year. If you have your own bike, there're very scenic local bike trails all the way to Queenscliff, etc. But otherwise you can take a walk around the basin or nearby lake. Novelty 'Q' Train and 'Blues' Train runs between Drysdale & Queenscliff. Onsite tennis court. ( racquets and balls available if you do not have your own), basketball loop. Besides our own cricket field/oval, there is also a public sporting arena jogging track about 300meters from us on foot and if you stay long enough, you may enjoy our homegrown seasonal veggies and free-range eggs. We provide continental breakfast needs - milk, juice, cereal, bread, yoghurt, home make jam if available. We can accommodate babies from 0-9mths old. Cot hire available. We are also dog friendly if your furry mate has its own bed, toilet trained and is clean and beyond the chewing stage. We are also horse friendly (as we have huge paddocks) and there is a riding trail near the property). If you see yourself enjoying a pit fire under the stars while you cook your BBQ, with the sunset on one side and the moon coming on the opposite side, contact with nature, scent of gum trees and soil, wandering in the garden and among fruit trees, feeding deer and chickens then this is the place for you in a safe and natural environment. The sound of the wind in the trees and the birds are a relaxing complement to the experience. The location is perfect, a few minutes driving from everywhere, whether you like to visit nurseries, wineries, eateries, or beaches. There are also plenty of areas to walk without using the car and enjoy being in touch with nature.More
