Meet Jan and Lin: Bells by the Beach Holiday House

Meet Jan and Lin, owners of Bells By the Beach Holiday House located in Ocean Grove, Victoria!

Jan and Lin Bell – business owners

With retirement on the horizon and after working in the fire service and retail/admin sectors, the pair were in search of somewhere to live permanently or open a holiday rental business.

The pair first visited the Bellarine Peninsular in search of somewhere to live permanently or a place that felt right to open a holiday rental business. Jan and Lin found a two bedroom unit in Ocean Grove; their first holiday rental business. It was later on when they found it a right time to buy a larger home around the corner on Roditis Drive, the start of Bells By The Beach Holiday House. The couple moved permanently to another location in Ocean Grove to be close to the investment and serve guests 24/7, which they still do.

Bells By The Beach Holiday House is now a welcoming holiday home for families to spend a short or extended time, with or without their dogs.

During the past 15 years or so, Jan and Lin have welcomed more than 400 different dogs, with pet-parents from regional Victoria, suburban Melbourne and interstate to holiday in their home. Guests return time and time again to the welcoming home as they love the property facilities, the squeaky clean house and the neat and tidy dog-friendly coastal garden…not to mention the beach is just a short doggy stroll (500 metres) to the sand dunes and over onto the beach.

We love being holiday accommodation owners, it gives us much satisfaction to know we are helping families plan and budget for holidays well in advance

Dog-lovers are delighted to find that the house truly is dog and family friendly, where dogs are welcome to sleep indoors with their family and be safe and secure in the fully fenced property.

About the area

Ocean Grove is growing into the largest township on the Bellarine Peninsula. The area is surrounded by renowned wineries, walking trails, pristine beaches, fishing spots and golf courses. Bring your dogs down to run along the beach, crash through the waves, or just enjoy a swim. Head further away and explore the many local attractions across the region. There’s something for everyone to enjoy at Ocean Grove.

With the property in easy reach of shopping, activities and the glorious beach, it is no wonder that the property is thriving with guests in Spring, Summer and Autumn.

We look forward to meeting new guests and welcoming back others who consider our house as a home away from home. We sometimes wish we had another house to ‘spread the beach love’ to everyone who wants to stay and who are disappointed to find we are booked out.
