Gippsland Lakehouse is a luxury waterfront four bedroom holiday rental house situated on the Paynesville canals of the Gippsland Lakes. Capturing the sun all day from its northerly aspect, guests can relax on any of the three decks which offer stunning views across the canals, lakes and mountains.

The lower deck leads to a private jetty, the middle deck extends the living area complete with outdoor open fireplace, barbecue, outdoor dining and sun lounges, and the top deck ensures a private area adjacent to the master bedrooms, also with an outdoor setting.

Perfect for a weekend away with a group of friends or for a couple of families, Gippsland Lakehouse is one of the few truly child friendly properties on the canals. The huge entertaining deck is enclosed with a glass balustrade and has a lockable gate leading down to the water. All the sliding doors are also lockable. The house is fully equipped with baby furniture so you can travel light. There are computer games for the older kids, board games, and a library of DVDs and CDs to suit every taste.

Gippsland Lakehouse is the perfect getaway for boat lovers. The Gippsland Lakes offer the best inland water for both water sports and fishing. Where else in country Victoria can you tie up your boat outside your house for the duration of your stay?

But you do not have to have a boat to enjoy the tranquil surrounds and amenities of this luxurious waterfront villa. The area offers lakeside walks, rail trail bicycle paths, markets, wineries, gourmet cafes and restaurants. The area is well serviced by the village of Paynesville, and every possible amenity is provided for by the larger town of Bairnsdale, a ten minute drive away.
