Private Beach – Stunning Views!
Is this the ultimate in pet friendly Fleurieu holidays? We may be biased, but we think it is! Lets start with its location: lakefront with a private beach! The downstairs living area, main bedroom suite, private courtyard and rear verandah all enjoy stunning views of the beach and the lake. If you want to do more than just sit and stare, drag our kayak a few metres from the back fence to the water line and go for a 4.5km paddle! Go for a swim. Play with the kids on the beach or in the shallow water at the lakes edge. This is a truly glorious place to get active or just relax!
The two story house is located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac just a few minutes walk from Franklin Parade (the esplanade at Encounter Bay).
As you walk in the front door to the hallway, there is a large downstairs light and bright bedroom, with a sliding door to the private courtyard, and a wall mounted TV. Next is a bathroom, which means those who are not able to climb stairs can reside completely downstairs throughout their stay. There is a separate toilet (nicknamed the “Harry Potter Room” because it is under the stairs) and laundry. The hallway ultimately opens onto the main open plan living area and kitchen. This fully tiled space has a wall of windows looking out to the lake and private beach for uninterrupted views.
There is an extendable dining table that can seat 10, a lounge area with big LCD TV and home theatre and a kitchen with dishwasher and breakfast bar. This room has three sets of sliding doors: two leading out to the verandah overlooking the lake and one leading to the private central courtyard.
The central courtyard (still with views to the lake) has a wonderful Vergola remote control roof. This enables you to control the light and air flow in the courtyard. It can be completely closed for a waterproof space. The 4 burner hooded gas BBQ sits in the courtyard, along with an outdoor setting.
Upstairs are three more bedrooms, including one that doubles as a second living space (with TV and DVD), and two full bathrooms. The main bedroom suite has a large walk in robe (with views of the lake!), an ensuite bathroom and a large bedroom space with stunning views. It has its own wall mounted TV.
The back verandah (facing the lake) is a lovely place to sit, relax and enjoy the lake. There is a comfortable outdoor setting as well as two Ikea beach chairs that can be moved anywhere in the garden (or down on the beach).
If you want to walk to the Esplanade at Encounter Bay, it is a flat 5 minute walk (there is a cut through at the bottom of Islander Drive). The house is within walking distance to 3 cafes (our favourite – The Beach House, Pa’s Fish Cafe and The Boulevard Cafe (on the lake at Bartel Boulevard) and the Yilki General Store (extremely popular for coffee and an egg roll for breakfast!.
