Beautiful waterfront house, close to Paynesville via ferry. North facing deck overlooking stunning water views. Cook's kitchen. 2 car spaces. Comfortably sleeps 6. Koalas, kangaroos, pelicans, swans and other wildlife right at your doorstep! Relax, enjoy the serenity. 3.5 hrs drive from Melbourne.
The house is one of 3 architect designed homes which make the most of the amazing water views over McMillan Strait to Paynesville. It has an open plan living space and 3 generous bedrooms, 2 convenient bathrooms and full laundry facilities. 2 cars can be parked under cover at the rear of the property. We also have a solar electric system.
A deep water jetty is available for guest use.
The kitchen is fully equipped, but you will need to bring all food supplies with you (or you can stock up in Paynesville at the IGA). There are no shops on the Island.
Unfortunately we do not have wifi, however phone access is good with both Telstra and Optus.
Raymond Island is one of the best places in Australia to see koalas up close. Quite often Koalas can be found in trees right out the front of the house or on the short walk to the ferry. Take a walk or cycle around the Island in safety.
Guests have access to the entire house and front garden.
The drive from Melbourne CBD to Paynesville takes between 3.5 and 4 hours, depending on traffic.
Bus leaves from the Ferry to and from Bairnsdale Railway Station and connects with V-Line trains to Melbourne.
The ferry between Raymond Island and Paynesville costs $12 return for a carload; pedestrians are free, so once on the Island you are best to just prop and enjoy the unique surroundings.
Paynesville, via the ferry, is easy walking distance and has some lovely restaurants and all the shops you need for groceries, chemist and other supplies.
