Stunning retreat with solar heated swimming pool, gas heated spa and tennis court!

Bookings are open to all families and groups over 30 yrs old.

Portsea Ponderosa, recently renovated is without a doubt one of the best properties in Portsea and represents amazing value! This is a spectacular residence that backs onto the Portsea Golf Course and has expansive gardens that blend with the surrounding landscape. The long meandering driveway frames the stature of this beach residence. Portsea Ponderosa is an ideal property for an extended family and for those who love to entertain. Not only does the property spread itself across 2 blocks of land, it generously houses up to 18 guests. There is plenty of space across 6 bedrooms and 3 living zones. The tennis court is a fabulous feature, as is the beautiful pool and heated spa. An easy walk to the Portsea Village and the bay beach!

Living and Dining

The generous proportions of Portsea Ponderosa aim to please all guests. The central living zone is located on the ground floor and incorporates a large-sized kitchen that will even satisfy the most fastidious chef. The modern edge design combines the kitchen with an informal living area to create an open plan living zone. The formal living room is also located in the same area and both of these living zones have a gorgeous view of the alfresco area and garden. The lower level has a Rumpus/Games room and is complemented with a full-size billiard table and a flat-screen TV. On the upper level is yet another living zone that has magnificent views over the rolling hills and the golf course. From here you can access a large deck that is basked in the sun. Portsea Ponderosa has plenty of space to entertain or to find a place to hideaway and enjoy the solitude. Whilst this property is centrally located in the heart of Portsea, you actually feel somewhere serenely secluded and remote!

Fantastic place

We had a fantastic stay here. Great spot. Nice and quiet and secluded yet not far to walk to Portsea shops. Massive house that can easily fit 3 families. Really well set up with everything you need and we had no desire to leave once here - apart from getting some bike riding and running in. Kids loved the court, hot tub and games room. Adults enjoyed a couple of wines by the open fire. \r\nWe would definitely love to stay here again.

Fantastic property!

Portsea Ponderosa is a fantastic property ideally suited for families to share. It had great spaces that enabled our large group to congregate as one or separate into different areas. We loved the tennis court, spa, pool, entertainment room and the fireplace. The kitchen was large and well equipped with everything we needed. It was great that the pool towels were also provided, and that all the sporting equipment was there- no need to bring anything else! We had a fabulous time and would love to visit again sometime!

5 star holiday accommodation!

Our whole family enjoyed our stay - it was a perfect venue to host my husbands 80th birthday. All 16 of us - family and extended family had a fantastic and most relaxing time in an environment that was so warm and welcoming. The property was clean and so well presented with spacious living areas, comfortable bedrooms, well equipped kitchen, a dining area with the huge square dining table which accommodated all 16 of us. We happily made use of some of the facilities provided...the billiard room, tennis court, spa, fireplace. It was too cold to get into the swimming pool at this time of the year. Parking for our 7 cars was more than ample.\r\n\r\nIt was a great pleasure dealing with the VVR Guest relations team who were always so professional and helpful with all our queries from the time we showed interest in renting the property in late January 2017. From the wonderful experience we have had, all of us will have no hesitation recommending a stay in Portsea Ponderosa to all our friends. It is definitely a 5 star holiday accommodation.

There were 14 of us and we all fit very comfortably as there is so much space and it is such a well-planned house. The pool and tennis court were fantastic and the only thing that could have improved our stay was Wi-Fi. A very comfortable walking distance from the main part of Portsea.

Perfect Ponderosa

The Ponderosa at Portsea was the perfect place for our 2015 family get together. The amenities are first class with everything you could wish for. Naturally the property was very clean and well presented. The swimming pool was fantastic for the grandchildren and the older folk made good use of the spa, games room and tennis court. Our 4 1/2 year old granddaughter is insisting we return as she had \so much fun\. Arranging our stay was very easy thanks to the professional team at \Verve\ who were also able to arrange massages for all the grown ups. We would certainly be keen to return to the Ponderosa.
