    Hello,

    I'm Michael. I'm 39 and live by myself in my Venus Bay home with my pet wombat, Womby! A real retreat is where I live my life everyday.

    * 90% of the year it's very quiet here yet 100% surrounded by local wildlife;
    * Picture yourself walking/running along miles of uninterrupted sand all to yourself :-)

    * 5 minute walk to my local surf beach;
    * 10-15 minute bike ride to local Venus Bay shops;
    * Sometimes hundreds of kangaroos to see within a 5 minute walk!

    Victoria's famous Wilson's Promontory National Park is about 45 minutes by car, Phillip Island 45 minutes and Melbourne 2.5 hours.

    I have photographed for 20+ years. See my website for more information and local imagery- ask me for the link. I enjoy swimming, cycling, music and HiFi (soul, funk, afro, latin, jazz, rock), cinema (too many), literature (classics, philosophy) and enjoy living/eating/being/immersed within a healthy, holistic, natural and organic lifestyle.

    Details and facilities at my home:

    Sorry, no smoking inside (outside OK), no pets nor children;
    No fixed home internet connection - I use internet from my phone;
