Renovated Beautiful Holiday Home with a Private Beach & Stunning Views!
* All guests are welcomed with a bottle of SA wine and chocolate *
Is this the ultimate in pet-friendly Fleurieu holidays? We may be biased, but we think it is! Let’s 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 lake’s edge. Also features high-speed Aussie Broadband Wi-Fi, Netflix, and Stan! This is a truly glorious place to get active or just relax!
The two-storey 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).
The property has just been renovated upstairs and down with a brand-new kitchen, two new bathrooms (plus a third bathroom downstairs), LED lighting, new flooring, and new furniture throughout.
As you walk in the front door to the hallway, there is a spacious 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 space is filled with natural light and has a wall of windows looking out to the lake and private beach for uninterrupted views.
The kitchen has just had a full renovation and now features a new stainless oven and cooktop, new black mixer taps and handles, dishwasher, double door stainless fridge, breakfast bar, and contemporary pendant lighting.
In the main living area, there is a dining table and a lounge area with big LCD TV with Apple TV (with Netflix and Stan) and a home theatre. 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 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 Apple TV), and two full bathrooms (both just renovated). The main bedroom suite has a large walk-in robe (with views of the lake!), a brand-new ensuite bathroom with a walk-in shower, and a large bedroom space with stunning views of the lake. 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).
For water activities, there is an aluminium rowboat, kayak, and surf ski available for guest use (with 4 life jackets of various sizes). Dogs on a leash are permitted on all lake beaches. Unfortunately, they are not permitted in the water.
For indoor entertainment, there are four TVs (two upstairs and two downstairs), two Apple TV systems with Netflix and Stan, two DVD players, books, board games, and, of course, the Aussie Broadband Wi-Fi internet.
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, The Boulevard Cafe (on the lake at Bartel Boulevard), and the Yilki General Store (extremely popular for coffee and an egg roll for breakfast!
Bed Configuration (4 Beds):
- Main Bedroom: King Bed (Sleeps 2)
- Second Bedroom: Queen Bed (Sleeps 2)

The beds will be freshly made for guest arrival with sheets, pillowcases, and quilt covers. Bath towels, mats, hand towels, and tea towels are all supplied.
There is a courtyard area at the side of the house that is completely enclosed to about 1.8m with a very small gap underneath the two gates (one at either end of the courtyard). The rear yard (facing the lake) is fully fenced but on the lakeside, it has a low pool fence of approx. 900mm. The backyard is lawned.
If this property is booked, we have another pet-friendly property on the lake at Encounter Bay (33 Clipper Ct). That fully renovated property has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a big living area with bi-fold doors to a pergola-covered outdoor entertaining area (with lake views of course), and a separate courtyard.
