Fantastic stay at Far View!

We had a wonderful and far too short stay at Far View recently. Fantastic location a short walk from the shops, the house was comfortable and incredibly well-quipped with excellent wifi. I literally couldn’t think of anything that wasn’t provided! Communication was fast and the online guidebook for the property was a terrific help. Thanks again and we will definitely be back for a longer stay!

Great location for a retreat

We had a wonderful, relaxing time at Far View for a long weekend retreat. Good location with general store nearby and beaches within walking distance. Our hosts were very flexible with our booking when our initial plans were impacted by a lockdown. Would recommend.

Amazing trip

We had an amazing stay at Far View Beach House in Venus Bay. Helen and Joseph were great to communicate with and we also found their digital Guidebook very helpful. The house was well equipped with everything you need. We enjoyed the BBQ and eating outside with the amazing view of green grass and animals. One of our favourite things was the binoculars which allowed us to see cows, kangaroos and even a deer! The house also had an Apple TV and great selection of board games which were perfect for a rainy day. The main bedroom mattress was so comfy that we struggled to get out of bed in the mornings. Our highlight of our stay was that we got to include our dog in our holiday. The house is super dog friendly and came with a dog bed, lead and bowls. The house is a short walk away from the Main Street of Venus Bay where we enjoyed lots of coffee and great meals. The locals in Venus Bay seemed very friendly, nodding and waving whenever we were on a walk. We loved that we also got to explore the town of Inverloch, which was only about a 20 minute drive from Venus Bay. We wish we could’ve stayed longer but we will definitely be back!

A much needed breath of fresh air

We 'escaped' for a long weekend after a few failed attempts due to Covid. What a wonderful house with everything you could need. Kids (12 and 9) loved it, we all watched the star and milky way display and the binoculars provided helped us to see the wildlife up close. Thanks 😊

Book it, you'll love it!!

Gorgeous house with views to match! It has everything you need for a few nights, or a few weeks. We have 3 kids (3, 10 & 15) and they all had a great time! They loved all the games provided, especially the Atari!! Bedrooms all have their own r/c air conditioning...the r/c unit outside of the kids bunk room is loud, but we found the main unit in lounge heated the whole house comfortably without having to use bedroom units. 2 of the bedrooms also have TV's which again is great for the kids! They thought it was great sitting in their beds watching movies on the Stan & Netflix provided. The yard it flat and securely fenced for kids or fur babies. House was very clean & communication with hosts was helpful, friendly and faultless. It was the perfect family beach getaway, would highly recommend, and look forward to coming back!!

We had a lovely couple of days relaxing at Far View; would have liked to stay longer. The house is very clean with comfortable beds, very well set up with everything you could need. The property is well fenced for animals. We loved the view of the paddock in front with the cows and kangaroos and we enjoyed our quiet walks on the beach and local surrounds. We had a nice meal at “Riverview Hotel”, Tarwin Lower, 5 kms from the house. The locals were very friendly. We can highly recommend Far View. Our host Joseph was easy to communicate with and quick to respond. Thank you again for lovely stay at Far View.

scenery, sand and cows (and the odd wombat)!

My husband, 3 year old and I had a wonderful extended stay at the appropriately named Far View which does indeed have a wonderful view across lush fields full of cows to the Bald Hills wind farm way in the distance. Far View became a bit of a home away from home for us, made easy by the fact that the house is so well set up. With a coffee maker, reverse cycle heating in every room and a TV in all 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a washing machine and drier (plus lots of games and even some bikes), we were super well catered for. The house is also really well set up for kids and/or pets with a big locked garden. It's just 10 minutes walk through a lovely track through sea dunes and tea trees to Venus Bay's idyllic main beach and a similarly short walk into town (a general store, a couple of good cafes, a fish and chippery). We absolutely loved our stay here and would be back in a shot! Joseph and Helen are wonderful hosts and great communicators.

Peaceful get away

Thank you to the owners who have taken great care and consideration to ensure nothing was needed on our recent stay at Far View. What a delightful home with magnificent views. We did not even turn on the TV for the 3 nights we were there, as we couldn’t tear our gaze away from the magnificent view across the green paddocks full of cows. The weather was a quite cold and rainy but we did not care as we were as warm as toast inside with reverse cycle air conditioners in every room and electric blankets on the beds kept us warm at night. The house is impeccably clean and beautifully decorated and we wanted for nothing. A well-stocked kitchen with appliances meant we could cook all our meals and even bake a cake. The coffee machine was a welcome inclusion for the caffeine addicted and so thoughtful to have a carton of milk in the fridge for that all-important coffee and cup of tea when you first arrive. The supply of games was fantastic (with some old favourites and new) as we spent our evenings happily the playing the board games provided. The house was also perfect for our four legged babies. Our 2 dogs spent the weekend happily sniffing out all of the corners of the yard outside and I had peace of mind that the yard was fully secure with a fence all around and knew they couldn’t escape. A very relaxing holiday was had by all!!
