Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 8
Paynesville, Gippsland, Victoria
Homey island getaway on Raymond Island, Gippsland Lakes.

This is the perfect holiday location for families with a house that comprises four bedrooms (two queen beds, one double, two twin beds), full kitchen, dining, lounge, sun room and a backyard big enough to park a boat. Great for a long weekend or an extended break.

Raymond Island is a three hour drive from Melbourne and separated from the mainland by ferry. The house is only minutes from the Raymond Island Ferry and new island and mainland dining options and a popular public playground. Everything is only a short walk or cycle away should you want to ditch the car for a while.

The house is special. It is not a regular holiday house rented out for business, but a family house rented out when not used by the family. This means, you basically live in the family's place. The house is simple and rather basic, but beds are comfortable and everything was reasonably clean. The best of the house is however the...

Situated some 3.5 hours from Melbourne, Raymond Island is perfect for those who wish to relax and wake to the sounds of nothing other than beautiful birds. A short ($11.00 return) ferry ride separates the Island from Paynesville. This maybe the reason there are no vermin visible. Koalas and Kangaroos are in abundance... Apparently the fishing is wonderful, although I...

This house was fantastic. Everything you could want or need, very family friendly and presented beautifully. Raymond Island is a hidden wonder of Victoria. We had not been there before nor heard of it and we're wonderfully surprised about the beauty of it. Our two children both loved it. The ferry and a playground are a two minute walk from...
