Shearwater  Beach House is situated in the Promontory Views Estate in Walkerville,  South Gippsland. It is a relaxing getaway suited to families, couples  and small groups looking for a retreat with spectacular scenery and  stunning beaches to explore within the landscape of South Gippsland. It  is a spacious newly built home featuring two separate living areas,  ideally suited to two families. There is plenty of room to find your own  space or gather together. Children are easily entertained downstairs in  the open-plan living area. The main living area with lounge and firebox  and huge dining table is next to the kitchen, making preparing meals  easy.

Located on the eastern side of Waratah Bay, Shearwater has views  across Waratah Bay to Bass Strait and Wilson's Promontory and of Cape  Liptrap National Park.

This remote pocket of Victoria offers wilderness adventurers much to  explore within spectacular scenery. Situated close to the unspoiled  beaches of Walkerville (2 minutes drive), Waratah Bay (15 minutes),  Sandy Point (15 minutes), Fish Creek (20 minutes) and Venus Bay (20  minutes). It lies 25 minutes from the entrance to Wilson’s Promontory  National Park.

It is a place to spend a weekend, a few days or ideally a week to relax, restore and unwind.

- Aside from Wilson’s Prom, there are plenty of National Parks to explore.

Dogs are welcome, please keep them outdoors and not inside the house.  We have set up a dog bed and bowls for food and water on the undercover  deck downstairs. Naturally, we expect you to clean up all dog mess left  in the yard. The back and sides of the property are fenced with basic  wire fencing. The front is fenced with a large timber fence and gate on  both sides. So it allows your dog to be enclosed on the property, but it  is not dog proof.

MOBILE PHONES & WIFI

Guests whose mobile phone provider is Telstra should find coverage  easily inside the house, on both levels. Other service providers are not  as reliable, but guests should generally have reception out the front  of the house.

You’ll find Instructions for connecting to WiFi in the information folder. 

PRICING

* One of the only properties in the area to offer a full linen service.

Shearwater is a large house. It requires between 6 - 8 hours cleaning  each stay. Big groups take much longer to clean-up after and use more  electricity, water and firewood, so we have set up a sliding price  scale. There is a flat rate for up to 4 guests. Each guest above this is  an additional $50 per night – this way small groups aren’t excluded and  it covers the additional cleaning and utility costs for larger groups.

UNDERSTANDING HOLIDAY RENTALS

Holiday rental differs from city living and hotels. If you haven't  stayed at a Dufflebird property, or are new to holiday renting, let us  know and we can guide you through it, including:

Tank Water

Solar Hot Water

Rural Electricity

Septic and Sewage

Packing Up

There is more information in the Rental Agreement.

Shearwater is priced to make the property attractive to both smaller  families and also groups of up to 8.  Big groups take much longer to  clean-up after and use more electricity, water and firewood, so we have  set up a sliding price scale. There is a flat rate for up to 4 guests.  Each guest above this is an additional $50 per night – this way small  groups aren’t excluded and it covers the additional cleaning and utility  costs for larger groups. A flat rate works well for some properties but  are trialling this system to make it less expensive for smaller groups.

Shearwater is a spacious house with two separate living areas. It’s  ideal for two families to enjoy a holiday together, but equally suitable  for a single family or group of adults. It's close to beaches, and all  the delights of South Gippsland and Wilson's Prom. On booking, we will  send you information detailing everything you can do in the region. We  hope you enjoy your stay as much as our previous guests.

COVID-19
As the government has moved to a 'living  with Covid' approach, so have we. If you are unable to travel due to  testing positive or being a close contact of a confirmed case, our  standard cancellation terms apply. 

We  have adapted the recommended enhanced cleaning routine.

Self check-in and checkout via key-safe.

The property has reliable fast WiFi and we are open to longer stays.

*We have needed to increase cleaning and turn over time to 7 hours.   Check in is now 5pm, check out 10am, but only on days of a tight  turnover.  

*Weekends have been extended to 3 nights minimum and weekday stays  are 4 night minimum. If you have a request for a stay longer than two  nights that isnt a Monday or Friday check in or check out, you can email  us.

In order to protect our team, we do require all guests to be fully vaccinated.
