Large family home set on acreage with rural views and kids tree house
Holiday Farm House in Merricks
Great spot for a rural family getaway but still close to Merricks General Store, Pt Leo Estate, Pt Leo surf beach or Surf Lifesaving Club. On arrival you meander along the drive, this is where you can start to relax, drive past the cattle grazing in the paddocks or water birds around the fenced dam. Drive over the cattle grid, park and unpack.
This holiday home is well designed with the Parent Retreat at one end including en-suite & split system (5th bedroom in this area), formal lounge & dining with access to large deck with outdoor setting where you can relax with a glass of wine or enjoy a BBQ.
Centrally located is a well appointed kitchen and combined living which is a great spot for the family to gather with an open fire
Place for those chilly nights or wander out on to the deck and enjoy the rural views.
The bedroom wing can be closed off from the living which is great for kids to enjoy their space. In this section there are 3 more bedrooms, family bathroom (incl. bath), laundry and 3rd toilet.
There’s also lots of room for the kids to play outside including a cubby built around a tree! If you’re after somewhere quiet and enjoy rural living, book now!

This is an absolutely fabulous venue. It is really set up for young families with loads of quality toys (do not bring any toys with you). It even has a step for young kids to use at the loo or sink. There is a tree cubby set in extensive (huge) manicured gardens - the roses and mock orange were blooming so it was divine. It was all fenced and totally safe to let the kids run around outside. The photos on the Internet make the distance from the veranda to the ground look high, but in fact you can easily sit on the veranda and watch the garden. The outlook was over lush green paddocks with cows. We went on a weekend when the weather was variable, and the large living areas meant that the kids (two families with four kids under the age of five) could play inside when it was raining. This also has one of the best equipped kitchens I've ever encountered in a rental place. Anyway, you get the idea... we had a great time.
Perfect Country GetawaySteve
We stayed at Summerland as a group of friends weekend getaway. We had dinner booked at Laura Restaurant at Pt Leo Estate. Summerland is perfectly situated directly across the road from Pt Leo. Summerland is a beautiful property with farm land and beautiful gardens surrounding the house. The house can easily sleep 8-10 people and has plenty of space for everyone to relax. Having plenty of fire wood supplied was a great touch because having the fire going on a cold night was amazing. Strongly recommend Summerland estate and we will certainly be staying there again soon.
