Boogoodoo is a "Grand Design" style home set on more than 20 acres on a peninsula in to Westernport Bay, near the Phillip Island bridge. There are sea views to the north, south and west and the house has been designed to take it all in. It's one of a kind. Offering up to 6 people a rare coastal experience. With water to 3 sides every window has a sea view.

Boogoodoo is short for Boogoodoogada which means Rainbird in an Aboriginal dialect. The house design reflects this with it's unique glass beak staring out to sea.

This 20 acre waterfront conservation haven is a private peninsula and home to beautiful sea birds, land birds and wildlife with a remarkable, sculptural dwelling which is the occasional home of a creative couple. Designed with a renowned architect and built by the owners, so attention to detail has been paramount.

Opposite the Phillip Island bridge, Boogoodoo features panoramic 270° sea views from the house that include other islands such as French, Churchill and Elizabeth plus the wild side of Mornington Peninsula and the Corinella cliffs. Add rural vistas and the Bass hills and you feel much further than 90 mins from Melbourne CBD. Phillip Island and Kilcunda surf beaches are 12 minutes from the front gate. Visit the penguins and all The Island can offer.

Roam the private beach at gardens edge plus kilometres of shoreline beyond. Cross the garden in another direction and there lies an island that can be reached on foot at low tide for a beautiful nature walk. At high tide you can take our 2 person canoe and 1 person kayak for a paddle around that island or up the Bass River. Relax and enjoy the twinkling lights of villages around the bay at night from an artists retreat.

The big living/dining room has a spacious, well thought out kitchen with euro appliances so cooking for a handful of friends or family is fun. There is also a TV lounge with smaller dining table and covered deck with BBQ. Master with ensuite is off the big living area whilst through the giant sliding door the double and twin bedrooms plus shower room are off the TV lounge.

Pets: Dogs only by arrangement due to conservation and local law.

Boogoodoo also offers your horse a holiday at certain times of year with quality agistment next door and a section of beach for riding and swimming with a sand roll. Please ask re other pets.

Depending on the season Boogoodoo is home to as many as 1000 black swans plus raptors and many species of land and sea birds including migratory birds that fly 12,000km between here and Antarctica. BYO binoculars to see the shy ones.You may also see kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, wombats or small native species so go slow down the drive. There is always something to see regardless of the season.

As well as beach walks Boogoodoo has its own tracks to meander along.

Stay in and watch a dvd or play a game or turn off the lights to watch electrical storms over Melbourne and South Gippsland. Enjoy the massive sky with amazing cloud formations, stunning sunrises, sunsets and starry nights. Natures stunning backdrop provides inspiration for artists, photographers, writers or those who just want to relax.

This is NOT a party house so is not available for those who want more than a few visitors, to partake in noisy pursuits, wild cavortings or hooning around.

However, if you love and respect wildlife and seek a place to unwind, enjoy a slower pace of life, laughter and simple pleasures with loved ones then Boogoodoo will be perfect for you.

Amazing Escape

Thoroughly enjoyed staying here. Unbelievable views on 3 sides and totally uninterrupted peace and quite. Everything you need for an easy stay or to prepare a gourmet feast if you can drag yourself from watching the sun set too! Will be back for sure :)

A truly beautiful place

This was our second stay and once again it didn't disapoint. The views are amazing from every aspect of the house and the setting is tranquil and restorative. The house has a lovely welcoming feel and is equipped with everything you need.

Totally connected to nature

Standing outside the house, one can feel you are just there, between heaven and earth, yet you have all the modern luxury and comfort inside the house, especially important when the weather suddenly turn extreme ! The sunset is amazing!

Fantastic Hideaway

Paradise found for these tired travellers. The highlight of our stay was rowing the canoe surrounded by a multitude of swans and some curious pelicans. We enjoyed cooking in the great space then intended watching a dvd. Instead we sat out in the dark with a glass of wine just talking and laughing. We realised we were totally content. Waking later with the shock of not knowing where on earth I was, I walked to the fridge. The lights across the water twinkled through one wall of windows and reflected in those opposite making me feel like I was on a spaceship coming in to land. I felt like a kid again! Mind you, this fabulous place probably does that to most people. Fantastic!
