This house is formerly known by locals as the Eagles Nest' has views which stretch to the Port Phillip Heads and beyond. At night the Peninsula below shines like a Christmas Tree! Large windows in the lounge promoting breath taking sunsets. If you think summer is sensational then winter is even better, see the rain as it blows across the bay while you sit cosy and warm next to the coonara fire. View the magnificent array of birds as they fly below you and at eye level. Every ship that comes into Port Phillip turns right in front of you through the channel, there is also McCrae lighthouse just below.

Strictly no pets permitted because of National Park Regulations and there is no fencing - bush setting - this house is not suitable for children under 5or the frail elderley as the block is on a large slope and the decking is very high, the cobble stone path leading up to the house isquite rustic, elderley are welcome of course but may need asistance from the car to the house.

About the location of the house:
** This property is on a very steep bushy steep block, has a very high balcony, families with small children must check photos and description to see if suitable we dont recommend the house for children. To get such sensational bay views the house is at the top of a steep roughly paved narrow track/driveway, any vehicle can drive up or down at slow speed except lowered vecicles. At the top is a gravel level car parking area thats fits 2 cars which is an easy walk (slight ascent to the house) its quite exhilarating to drive up and down Karasimo's drive way!!. Because the house is nestled into the edges of the National Park its a serene rustic feel, and surrounded by native bush, you may get a visit from the local possums, wallabies, lizards, birds and more...
