An elevated open airy, comfortable living space on the main upper storey, with views over the tree tops to the magnificent Bancroft Bay. Relax on the deck of a much loved, creative, old Metung home, a 220 m walk down a steep hill to the boardwalk - a 20 minute walk into the village. Stroll along the waterside, past the yacht club to Metung Village Green, its shops and restaurants. There is a separate flat under the house where a long term tenant lives. The carport & back yard are shared.

The space
The main house, rented on Airbnb, is up a flight of stairs to the huge deck with a magnificent view over the tree tops and water. There is a table and chairs on the deck area for shaded outdoors eating as well as comfy casual seating. A pleasant walking distance into the village on the pretty boardwalk from Chainman's Creek near Edgewater Terraces.

Sleeping arrangements: Upstairs space has an open plan kitchen dining and sitting/TV area, off this area is a main room with queen bed and a second room with a double bed and a shared shower room and toilet. There is a spa bath which is NOT available to use due to water restrictions. The shower is inside the spa bath area. There is a detachable shower head to make showering easier for young children.

An extra single foam mattress on the floor for a 5th person /child is available on request - ideally used in the main bedroom. The Airbnb house has separate 3 entrances and is self contained with private use of the upstairs deck area. There is a steep driveway and covered parking for guests of 1 vehicle on the property. The second car space is used by the person who lives in the self contained/ separate flat below. There is some transference of noise from upstairs & downstairs. Guests are expected to kindly be considerate and respect the privacy of the tenant - just as s they will be very considerate of Airbnb guests. It is a quiet neighbourhood - please be considerate. There is fabulous wildlife in the area with bush behind the property - an abundance of birds and possums visit. Summer 2021 has also brought plenty of insects and spiders - we do our best to manage these but do not use insecticides.

Where you’ll be

Metung, Victoria, Australia

This much loved original Metung holiday home perched on a steep hillside above Chinaman's Creek, in a quiet part of Metung. Its a three to five minute drive into Metung Village itself. It is a very pleasant 20 minute walk along the boardwalk, to the bakery with daily fresh tempting goods, coffee shops, and excellent Metung Bistro and pub. There is a friendly village grocer, a pharmacy, post office, laundromat all within walking distance. Metung Farmers market held on the 2nd Saturday every month is a favourite, and not to be missed. Beaches, boats and a great children's playground in town where water features are always popular amongst families on holiday! Metung offers great boating facilities - Yachts from Metung Yacht Club are frequently seen on the water - watch them from the deck or from the pleasant lakeside boardwalk into the village. Boats are for hire in town or Lakeside trips are available departing Lakes Entrance. Plenty to do in the area, lakeside beaches, fishing from the jetties, wineries and restaurants. Advanced bookings for restaurants are highly recommended - Metung is a popular place.

I'm an artist, a teacher and have worked with young migrants. I love travel, adventure, art and design, books, poetry and open seas and skies. I enjoy exploring cities and am always curious about people from different cultures and places. I would find life hard without herbal teas, books, friends, good food and surprises. When I travel I enjoy the opportunity to meet people and chat about what makes their lives worthwhile and meaningful. I appreciate staying at places that are often quite simple and small, but clean and cosy and with the owner's unique style and stamp on it.

During your stay

Guests will have privacy and the space to themselves. I live 10 minutes away and will welcome them on arrival if possible and be in contact should guest need me during their stay. There are tenants in the self-contained space below and mutual consideration for their privacy and keeping noise low would be appreciated.
