Located in central Queenscliff opposite the parklands and beach plus just a 5 minute stroll to the shopping precinct, restaurants, cafes and galleries. Including luxurious linen and towels for your comfort and convenience Sea Pilot's Cottage is beautifully renovated and stylishly furnished. Originally built for the Sea Pilots of Port Phillip back in 1854 it was also used by the officers of the Queenscliff Fort and now it is available for guest to enjoy.
The owner's mindset for the renovation was to ensure entertaining was easy and fun. Situated at the rear of the home and all open plan - the living area has a new Rinnai Gas Heater, King lounge furniture, comfy armchairs, 43 inch Smart TV and R/C airconditioner. The kitchen has a side by side Liebherr fridge freezer with ice maker, large gas stove, loads of appliances, coffee machine, dishwasher and all the amenities required to entertain family and friends. A wood pot belly heater throws a lot of heat and gives a wonderful ambience in the cooler months. The dining area has seating for 6 and there are additional stools around the kitchen bench for casual meals or just to enjoy a drink while chatting.
The deck has a great outdoor setting, sun umbrella and a chiminea - you will need to supply your own firewood if you wish to use any of the wood heaters. The back yard has a lovely grass garden area with a BBQ and rear double gates in case you would like to get your car off the street - please note the garage is not available for guest's use.
There is a R/C airconditioner in the rear of the home and a gas space heater in the front, as well as portable fans and heaters if required. Being so close to the beach you are guaranteed to enjoy the cool sea breezes late afternoons.
The front Verandah has a cosy setting where you can enjoy a cup of tea while reading a book or you could stroll across the road for a refreshing swim in the very private front beach or just sit on one of the bench seats and watch the Sea Pilots being picked up from their pier and taken out to scramble up the ladder of a large ship, then steering them safely through the rip.
