"Relaxing, clean with beautiful sea views", guest 2017
Self contained 2bdrm ground floor apartment directly overlooking the sea in beautiful Jam Jerrup village, less than an hour from Melbourne CBD. Great for relaxing or exploring the Bass Coast and Phillip Island. Scenic walks along beach and cliff path. Free continental breakfast. Awesome sunsets. 2 bedrooms sleeps up to 4.
Dogs are welcome indoors. Great beach and off leash exercising on park opposite. Very dog friendly neighbourhood.
The guest apartment is on the completely separated ground floor of a 2 story house facing directly onto Westernport Bay in the quiet seaside village of Jam Jerrup. Facing due West to French Island we get some fantastic sunsets you can watch from the lounge, terrace (or even in bed!).
There is a Nespresso machine and coffee pods are provided as part of the free continental breakfast which includes eggs from my backyard chickens!
The apartment consists of a double bedroom, tv/living area, kitchenette/diner and bathroom as well as a European laundry. There is also a second bedroom with 2 large single bunk beds suitable for adults or kids. There is room for up to 4 guests. Pets are very welcome and the front yard is fenced (1m) and gated. Jam Jerrup is a very dog friendly place and your furry friends can walk off leash or run on the local sandy beach.
Guests can access the entire downstairs area, terrace and fenced front yard and driveway. I live upstairs separated by a staircase and locked door and use a separate outside staircase and entrance when guests are here. There is a Weber gas bbq outside and a table and benches on the terrace overlooking the bay. The driveway and front yard are shared but I only use it once a day for 15 min to play ball with my dog and otherwise it is all yours. There is a door to the backyard where my ducks and chickens live, which can get quite muddy and poopy in winter, so enter at your own risk. Guests dogs should never be allowed out the back. The chickens will probably run up to say hello and there is chook food in the green bin next to the back door if you feel like feeding them, they love that - it will also shut them up in the morning.
Guests will have the private lower floor to themselves. If convenient for both of us I will greet guests then leave them to themselves. If you arrive at night I will come down and say hello the next day. I usually catch up with guests when playing ball with Jade on the front lawn in the late afternoon. Otherwise you will be left to yourselves unless you want to ask any questions. There are brochures for local tourist attractions and you are welcome to ask for advice.
I lives upstairs, which is partitioned off and has a separate external stairway and entrance. If I need to talk to guests I will either text or ring the bell on the outside door and come in that way. If you require my attention urgently you can always come up the internal staircase and knock on the door.

Backyard: I have 4 chickens (Neetie, Red, Wanda and Blackie) +2 ducks (Wendi, Bob) in the backyard and 2 cats (Minoo, Rosie) and a friendly old dog (Jade) upstairs so probably best for someone who loves, or is at least tolerant, of animals. If you have allergies then consider that the cats have probably been sitting on the furniture recently even though it is regularly cleaned. The backyard is not set up for guests so enter at your own risk as it can get quite muddy (and duck/chicken poop), especially in winter.

Hi, I am James. I am retired and live in the beautiful seaside hamlet of Jam Jerrup with my rescue dog, rescue cats, rescue chickens, ducks, fish and turtle. We love having visitors stay and see the sunsets and explore the local area. Apart from animals I am interested in art, books, gardening, music and travel. I also do volunteering work for people with intellectual disabilities. I have lived and worked in Townsville, Rockhampton, Perth, Kalgoorlie, Cambridge, Boston, Sydney, London, New York and Melbourne and think where I live right now in Jam Jerrup is the best of them all.
My favourite holiday is sailing in the Mediterranean or a train journey anywhere.
Through my volunteer work I have a "Working with Children" check as well a police check.
