The Family Retreat at the Cape is a perfect house for a peaceful family getaway, providing a wonderful spot to explore South Gippsland's Cape Liptrap and Walkerville coastal region. Originally a fishing shack, we've refurbished the space to create a bright and airy house designed to comfortably sleep two families, or up to 8 adults. With private access, and a large grassy yard, the house is perfectly suited to those looking for some peace and quiet in a private rural setting.

The space
The house has a deck that opens right around the house to enjoy both the morning and afternoon sun. Views extend into surrounding bush and paddocks with a glimpse of the ocean through the Melaleucas.

A swamp wallaby is a regular visitor as are the kookaburras, black cockatoos and wombats.

The house is complete with everything a family or two needs for a quiet weekend or as a base for exploring during school holidays, however the property is not connected to town water and we are on limited tank supply, so it’s not feasible for us to provide a full linen service. We provide doonas with covers and pillows. We also provide towels. Guests will need to bring their own top and bottom sheets and pillow slips.

Being remote, the house does not have a council rubbish collection service. Guests are asked to take all rubbish and recycling with them when they leave.
