An apartment with a beautiful ocean view in an established resort with pools and restaurant on site. The beach is literally a stone's throw away. Relax to the sound of the waves just a few minutes away from Port Dickson, shopping, and fantastic food.
This apartment belonged to my grandfather but he didn't have much chance to enjoy it. I have just completed some renovations, but I live abroad so I don't get to visit as much as I'd like either. I would like to welcome travellers to relax and enjoy the breathtaking views.
The balcony has a 180 degree across the water and gives just incredible sunsets. You are literally on the beach and have the option to either swim in the warm, tropical waters or the pool in the resort. There is a lovely resort restaurant and bar on site that is open until midnight.
For more local flavour, Port Dickson town is 10 minutes North (turn left exiting the gates) and there are also plenty of shops and restaurants 2 minutes south and right at the roundabout.
The whole apartment is yours. There is a holiday kitchen with fridge and microwave. Feel free to try the Oolong tea in the top right cabinet. I am a big lover of Chinese tea and this is one of my favourites.
There are towels and sarongs in the right corner cabinet under the sink. Only use the towels for the bathroom, don’t take them to the beach. Shake the sarongs out downstairs, and you can dry them on the balcony chairs.
There is also a reserved car space available.
Interaction with guests
I live in Melbourne, Australia, but my good friend lives just 1 minute down the road and will be on hand to welcome you and pass you keys.
He's a Port Dickson local so ask him for recommendations!
Other things to note
There is no TV! I know some people find that really hard, but the view is really enough for me. Read a book, have a conversation with your loved ones, or just reflect on the peace and quiet.
There is wifi downstairs at the Coconut Grove, but I have heard from other guests that it is not the fastest, so please don't come expecting to be online all the time.
No smoking indoors.
Generally behave as if it were your own house. Leave everything in the condition you found it. If anything breaks from accident, just let me know so it can be replaced.

A nomad at heart, accommodation definitely influences how much I enjoy a particular place. I have backpacked in dorms, crashed on couches, and been put up in luxury resort hotels. But nothing is as relaxing as staying in someone's home. Hotels can be fun but there is something much more personal to living in someone's home and gaining that insight into really local lifestyles. Sharing my apartment makes me feel very connected to other like-minded travellers.
My apartment is small but I love it! It has everything I need and I hope it has all yours too. I enjoy jogging with my dog in the nearby park, yoga, gardening and swimming at the beach. I have travelled a lot with my puppy so I understand how difficult it is to find accommodation with pets. So if you are also an animal lover, feel free to bring your furry family member along! I have food and water dishes available too.
Melbourne will always be my beloved home and I love to show off my city to visitors! Please ask if you'd like recommendations for restaurants, bars, parks or sites to visit for all ages!
My life motto at the moment is "Bite off more than you can chew, and then chew like crazy". Be grateful for a moment and you'll be happy for a day.
