Our Passion….

After more than twenty plus years working as Holistic Therapists, our passion has been to make a difference in people’s lives. We have understood that people who lead stressful, hectic and repetitive lives need something completely different to reconnect with what is truly important. When the conditions are right: the moment, the place, the sounds, the smells, the feeling... amazing experiences and transformations are possible.

We look forward to welcoming you to our "piece of paradise"

Owners Karen and Ted Wlas Venus Escapes

Surrender to the peace….

You may find it difficult to believe that a haven of peace, tranquillity and indulgence is only two hours from Melbourne CBD.  However once you arrive at Venus Escapes you will feel yourself surrender to its seaside location and air of serenity.

Venus Escapes is a place to escape the daily grind and re-awaken your senses. Just 300 metres from a luscious stretch of stunning South Gippsland beach!

The Guesthouse itself is a two-storey structure settled into the coastal dunes bordering Cape Liptrap Coastal Park. The upstairs wing is exclusively for guests and as well as the three guest rooms, a foyer with a microwave, DVD library, books, magazines and games.

Downstairs is equally well thought out, with the guest lounge room, licensed bar and dining area for breakfast and pre-arranged dinners. The guest lounge is the perfect place to relax and re-connect with one another.

Of course, the ultimate indulgence is the in-house therapies, which offers relaxation massage, organic facials, salt scrubs, body wraps, energy healing, spiritual counselling and more. Therapies must be booked prior to arrival and are subject to availability, but can you think of a better way to relax and unwind?

If you can drag yourself away from Venus Escapes, you will be rewarded with glorious coastal scenery, wonderful opportunities for fishing, surfing and windsurfing, abundant bird life, the beauty of the Point Smythe Nature Trail and more more.

However Venus Escapes is such a brilliant place to stay, relax and rejuvenate – all without leaving the property, that you just might find it too hard to drag yourself away.

Just 2 hours from Melbourne CBD and 300 metres from a luscious stretch of stunning South Gippsland beach, we offer indulgence through holistic and healing therapies, deluxe "hotel-style" accommodation for adults only and stunning nature, just at our doorstep.

Spoil yourself, reconnect with your soul and leave the world of stress behind. 



When you are enjoying a break away from the everyday, you don't want to have to get up early to have breakfast.... that's what you do everyday! At Venus Escapes we serve breakfast between 8.00 - 10.00am, so you can choose to eat early to make the most of the day, or wander downstairs later, or be spoilt with room service. 

This is a special meal, with the wonderful aroma of Di Bella coffee, the golden yolks of Annie's Free Range Eggs - extra special with our Eggs Benedict, the house speciality - and relaxing music, which sets the tone for the day.

We use only premium produce (organic where possible) and are proud to support our local suppliers.

Perhaps a continental breakfast is your style, with a selection of apple, orange and pineapple juice, housemade Bircher Muesli and Toasted Muesli served with Gippsland yoghurt and berries, Artisan style bread (for the perfect toast!) and your choice of T2 Teas, smooth Di Bella coffee or hot chocolate.

If you are looking for the hearty start to the day, don't go past our wonderful cooked breakfasts, where you can choose from traditional bacon and eggs (cooked to your liking), the luscious Eggs Benedict, the popular Deluxe Scrambled and the Vegetarian Delight.

Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements before you arrival to ensure we can cater for your needs.

Pre-arranged Dinner...

We believe in using only the freshest and best ingredients in our meals, however in order to source the ingredients for our Dinner we ask that you pre-order before arrival (a minimum of 24 hours notice is required) to ensure that we don't disappoint you, as we don't freeze our produce.

All meals at Venus Escapes are prepared and cooked by owner Karen who has a flair and passion for cooking.
