Gippsland Lakes Escapes offers an extensive accommodation booking service for a range of quality waterfront villas, lake houses and cottages to B&B's on the Gippsland Lakes, most with private jetties. The locations are what make these accommodation choices so special, and are the essence of your escape.

What does Gippsland Lakes Escapes have that is so special? Local knowledge of the Paynesville, Raymond Island and surrounding areas, great accommodation and a love of the unique and interesting things in life which are all highlighted on the comprehensive website.

A Gippsland Lakes Escapes break can begin with a weekend, mid-week short break or a week to truly escape and relax, but once you have stayed you will return.

The seasons are all special, hot summer days tempered by a cool, lake breezes, autumn and winter months with crisp blue sky days and mild temperatures, and spring when the local animal and bird life from koalas to pelicans, sea-eagles to dolphins become even more prolific.

You can stay right on the water in the lake side village of Paynesville on the canals or relax on Raymond Island with absolute lake frontages or views.

Retreat to remote or exclusive spots, accessible only by a boat journey on the beautiful lakes that becomes part your escape experience, choose the escape elements that are special for you, and then let Gippsland Lakes Escapes do the rest.

To make that choice easier, information has been compiled on attractions and activities, which may make your stay more memorable.

The range of accommodation offers everything you need for a perfect escape, and the website gives you information pertaining to all the facilities and options the property has, even prices and availability calendar to plan your escape.
