Living room at the Mount Eliza UnitI’m very happy to report that I’ve accepted an offer on my Mount Eliza unit and the Contract of Sale has been signed by both the buyer and me. Of course, right now the contract is subject to conditions, such as building and pest inspections, plus financing. We all expect this to be a mere formality and that within two weeks the official status will change from “Under Offer” or “Under Contract” to “Sold”.

Soon I’ll be ending this joyous chapter of my life and saying goodbye to this great unit and its wonderful location. My musician son will especially miss living here. However, it will be great to see the new owners moving in sometime in early August and starting to enjoy everything this Mount Eliza unit has to offer. I’m sure they will be very happy here.

Reiffel Hair Cutters entranceThere must be more than twenty easy to find hair and beauty salons in Mount Eliza Village. But the one I always frequent is almost hidden away upstairs at 100 Mt Eliza Way in the nucleus of the village. Journey through the wooden French doors you’ll find located between the newsagents and the butcher’s shop, and head upstairs.

To the left on the landing you’ll find the entrance to Lava Girl, a unique designer clothing, jewellery and gifts store. It’s easy to be tempted to enter and linger there. On the right you’ll find the door through to Reiffel Hair Cutters.

Chris Reiffel at Reiffel Hair Cutters

Chris Reiffel and his friendly young team at Reiffel Hair Cutters certainly know their stuff. You sit in a comfortable salon chair bathed in great natural light while Chris weaves his magic with a pair of scissors. And the results are not only fantastic, but reasonably priced.

Certainly Chris has won multiple state and national hairdressing championships over the years. But that’s not the only reason people are drawn to Reiffel Hair Cutters. Like me, most people find their way to the salon via word of mouth as the haircuts speak for themselves.

Being confident in Chris’ expertise and the abilities of his talented team is what attracts the varied and broad range of clientele to this salon. And you don’t get much more of a broad range than me, my two sons and my partner Lloyd!

Mount Eliza is a stable well balanced suburb with a rare beautiful mix of large sprawling properties (some of the largest blocks this side of Melbourne metropolitan region with 2/3 acre pockets) plus a mix of everything else right down to apartments in the heart of town, and beach boxes on the sandy shoreline.

A relatively small and quiet bayside village on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, it’s an easy commute to the Melbourne CBD by public transport, or via a network of major arterial road connections. This journey to work is soon to be further improved upon with the upgrade of the nearby Peninsula Link project due to be completed in early 2013, firmly positioning Mt Eliza for continued strong capital growth well into the future.

Fantastic for families or retirees, Mount Eliza is a very community minded suburb, with its numerous high quality schools, quiet beaches and relaxed village atmosphere.

Whether you are a rental property investor, a first home buyer, a young family, or thinking about retirement options, you will find this Mount Eliza unit for sale is both affordable and suitable for your needs.

In an ideal position, perched on the doorstep of the Mount Eliza Village shopping strip, just 50 metres from delightful cafes, restaurants, shops and a Sunday farmers’ market once a month, this renovated apartment will never sit idle.

Tenants young and old will savour the great location based on convenience. Real estate investment property owners will appreciate the capital growth potential.

Value for money investment property

For rental property investors looking for a great value for money real estate investment property, this is where the Mount Eliza home unit / apartment at Unit 5 / 67 Canadian Bay Road really comes into its own!

As of early 2012, you can expect a rental income of approximately $300 per week for Unit 5 / 67 Canadian Bay Rd, Mt Eliza VIC 3930. So at the value for money price of $319,500 ONO being asked, the numbers really stack up!

First time rental property investors might like to check out the Money Buddy guide – Investment properties pros and cons. It highlights the generalised benefits you’ll find with this investment.

If this property looks like it’s for you, please call the real estate agents handling the property today to arrange an inspection.

Mount Eliza unit for saleG’day,

It’s Lloyd Borrett here, Cheryl’s partner.

Mount Eliza Unit For Sale Campaign

The prime mission of this WordPress based blog and our integrated social media campaign is to help attract additional potential buyers for Cheryl’s home unit / apartment at 5 /67 Canadian Bay Road, Mount Eliza Victoria 3930, Australia.

The secondary mission is to provide interested buyers who come to us via the traditional real estate marketing channels with extra information about the property and the benefits of living in the Mount Eliza neighbourhood.

To attract potential new owner occupiers or property investors to purchase the Mount Eliza unit we’ve been using web marketing, search engine optimisation strategies, and social media marketing techniques in an integrated online campaign to generate an extended influence network.

Online Campaign Results

The beauty of online campaigns is that you can get plenty of information about what’s happening. You can track, measure and analyse almost anything. Here are some of the key online campaign results we’ve had so far:

On Google Analytics the results look like this:

Mount Eliza Unit For Sale Google Analytics

Mount Eliza Unit For Sale Google Analytics results

As you can see, the biggest spike in page views occurred when we crossed over and received publicity via a half-page story on page 22 of the Saturday 10 March 2012 edition of The Herald-Sun, a major daily newspaper, together with a prominent mention on the home page of their web site on the day. See their story online at http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/more-news/property-clicks-in-for-property-owners/story-fn7x8me2-1226295356018.

The second biggest spike happened when our friend and technology journalist Anthony Caruana mentioned what we’re doing with Pinterest and this blog on Lifehacker. See Selling Your House 2010s Style.

Real World Results

Sometimes the harder issue is to measure the real world results from online campaigns and this is just one such example. It’s not so easy to accurately quantify just how many inquiries to Eview Real Estate Partners, visits to open for inspections, and/or requests for inspections by appointment, are the result of the online campaign. That part of the process is out of our control.

However, what we’re being told is that the real estate agents are consistently seeing twice the interest for this property than the other properties on their books. Of course, while we’d like to believe this 100% increase in interest is entirely as a result of the online campaign, that may not be the case.

It could just be that it’s the inherent great qualities of the Mount Eliza home unit / apartment and its location so close by to Mount Eliza Village that is generating the extra interest. Or it could be the result of plenty of other external factors. In this case, it’s hard to know. Welcome to the problematic real world of online marketing.

Pinterest logoG’day,

It’s Lloyd Borrett here, Cheryl’s partner.

On Monday, 9 April 2012, we added support for Pinterest social photo sharing to this Mount Eliza Unit For Sale blog.

Pinterest is a pinboard-style social photo sharing website that allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections such as events, interests, hobbies and more. Users can browse other pinboards for inspiration, ‘re-pin’ images to their own collections and/or ‘like’ photos. (According to Experian Hitwise the Pinterest site became the 3rd largest social network in the US in March 2012, surpassing Linkedin and Tagged.)

Now this form of image sharing makes sense for an image rich web site like the Mount Eliza Unit For Sale blog. So I looked into it, created a Pinterest account – http://pinterest.com/mountelizaunit/ – and added support for Pinterest to this WordPress based web site.

Normally through the week if nothing is happening with new content, the web site gets about 5 to 10 user page views per day. As a result of starting to integrate the use Pinterest into our social media campaign, on Tuesday traffic went up to 21 views, on Wednesday to 41 views, and on Thursday came back a bit to 30 views. There’s also been a significant rise in Twitter followers as a result.

Of course, it’s too early to tell if these are the right eyeballs that will generate more interest and calls to Eview, our real estate agents. But it’ll be interesting to watch.

Our friend and technology journalist Anthony Caruana mentioned what we’re doing with Pinterest and this blog on Lifehacker. See Selling Your House 2010s Style. (This Lifehacker story resulted in 363 page views on Friday 13 April 2012, and 89 views on Saturday.)

A stunning day in Mount Eliza with warm sunshine and mild temperatures.

I love Victoria in autumn as it almost has the traits of a second spring. It brings moisture and with it some colour that was lost in the dryness of summer. The lawns and parks turn from brown into a lush green, shrubs and roses erupt in gorgeous blossom, and dawns come in pink and orange.

Living in Mount Eliza all year round has many benefits, but autumn is special. As most tourists don’t really get to know about the Mount Eliza area beaches, they remain fairly quiet even in the peak of summer. But in autumn the beaches go back to being frequented almost exclusively by the locals. I for one delight in the opportunity to go for beach walks and the occasional dip in the bay whenever I like.

Mt Eliza DeliMount Eliza is a unique community set in a wonderful seaside area full of birds, trees and relaxed friendly people. Some see Mt Eliza as a bayside suburb as the Melbourne CBD is just 48 kilometres and an hour drive to the north away. But as someone who works locally and rarely has to travel into Melbourne, I see it as a seaside village on the doorstep of the Mornington Peninsula set between two bays. Living in Mount Eliza means I don’t feel like I’m just another rodent in the rat race.

The main local shopping centre is known as Mount Eliza Village, at the intersection of Mount Eliza Way and Canadian Bay Road, just 50 metres from my home unit/apartment. It oozes style, charm, sophistication and a certain understated quaintness.

In the village you can spend your money in exclusive boutiques or op shops, read the papers and eat a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner in one of the terrific coffee shops or restaurants. If you feel the need for city shopping, then Frankston is just 7 kilometres away.

I prefer to take long walks on the beautiful secluded beaches, watch multi-coloured lorikeets winging through the sky, or see wild ducks and their babies waddling down the street.

There is a lovely kookaburra that often comes and perches on the front balcony rail of my home unit and looks at me while I read a book out on the balcony or inside in the living room.

Sometimes I head off to the nearby Moorooduc Quarry Flora and Fauna Reserve and make use of the walking tracks throughout the reserve. One track encircles the high cliffs of the quarry, and another the lake at the base of the cliffs. Following the path from Station Street takes you past the ruins of an explosives store.

But nothing could be further from the truth. So much so, that I quite delight in getting along to the site designated for the Mt Eliza Mobile Library when, on a Friday afternoon, the Mornington Peninsula Library comes to the Mount Eliza Village.

The Mornington Peninsula Mobile Library visits 16 sites across the Peninsula from Monday to Saturday each week. It’s stop in Mount Eliza is just a short walk away from my Mount Eliza home unit.

Morning Star Estate fountainI love going to Morning Star Estate which is just a seven minute drive away from my Mount Eliza home unit. It’s the perfect venue to enjoy with family and friends, having a great selection of restaurant foods and an excellent cellar of wines. It’s often the place of choice to just meet for coffee and cake.

Morning Star Estate is set amidst 22 acres of exquisite gardens, and 30 acres of vines, with panoramic views of Port Philip Bay stretching from the Bellarine Peninsula to Melbourne. We often enjoy a wander through these gardens with their unique waterfall feature, especially when the roses are in bloom.

The estate hosts plenty of events and live music concerts catering to many tastes throughout the year. For my favourites, I gather there with friends, bringing along deck chairs, rugs, jackets in case of rain, hats, sunscreen, smiles and good karma. There’s always good food and wine on offer, but sometimes we just bring a picnic to enjoy. We settle in to a carefully selected spot in the natural amphitheatre and take in the entertainment.

Meika the catThankfully, my cat Meika doesn’t seem to get put off by being moved from place to place. In the few years leading up to getting my Mount Eliza home unit, we moved quite a few times. Meika simply took it all in her stride and settled in to her new digs each time as if she’d been there all along.

And moving into 5/67 Canadian Bay Road was no different. Though this time she did appreciate that I was able to have a cat door installed, near the rear door, so that she could come and go as she pleased.

Being the friendly cat she is, Meika was soon on visiting terms with plenty of our neighbours.

Mount Eliza unit for saleThe Mount Eliza Unit For Sale web site was built by Lloyd Borrett of Chaordent in February 2012. (Please feel free to read about Why this blog exists.)

As we already had a number of web site hosting accounts, we simply registered a new domain name and set up the hosting for it on one of our existing hosting accounts. Then we selected WordPress as the content publishing platform, installed it and configured it.

If you’re looking to do something similar and don’t have a web hosting account, then you should consider setting up a free site at WordPress.com. However, if you want to use your own domain name (which we’d recommend), then you’ll have to pay for that premium option. Likewise if you want your website to be advertising free.

Platform

The Mount Eliza Unit For Sale web site runs using the WordPress v3.3.1 blogging and content management system, an open source solution released under the GNU license scheme. WordPress is a solution built using the PHP scripting language, with MySQL for the database.

The Splendio Theme created by DesignDisease is installed. Quite a few changes had to be made to this theme to get it to work the way we wanted. It still doesn’t play well with some WordPress plugins. If we were starting again, we’d probably look at a Genesis Framework based theme from StudioPress.

Several WordPress plugins are installed:

The Mount Eliza Unit For Sale web site is hosted by JaguarPC on servers running the Linux operating system, using the Apache web server.

Web Standards

The Mount Eliza Unit For Sale web site respects W3C standards.

Tools

Adobe Illustrator CS5.5 and Adobe PhotoShop CS5.5 are used to build the graphics for the Mount Eliza Unit For Sale web site.

NoteTab Pro and Microsoft Word 2010 are used as the text editors to write the content.

Google Analytics is used to analyse web site traffic and marketing effectiveness.

An Animoto account is used to generate the feature and short video slide shows for the web site.

A Bitly account is used for URL shortening and tracking, plus QR Code generation.

A Canon PowerShot S100 camera is used to take the majority of the photos.

Social Media

The Mount Eliza Unit For Sale web site is set up to integrate with the use of Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Flickr to help promote the website.

TweetDeck is used to publish and manage tweets.

We’ve also added support for the social media newcomer Pinterest – see Pinterest and this blog – or view our pinboards at Pinterest.

Our friend and technology journalist Anthony Caruana mentioned what we’re doing with Pinterest and this blog on Lifehacker. See Selling Your House 2010s Style.

Once the bathroom and laundry renovations were complete the resulting European style, compact laundry configuration turned out to be a very practical setup. The front loading washer dryer works great and the extra cupboard space we were able to add to the room has made a huge difference.

Train Service

You can get to and from Mount Eliza from the Melbourne CBD by using a Frankston line train. At Flinders Street Train Station go to either Platform 7 or 8 and board the Frankston Line to the last stop (Frankston station). Once arrived at Frankston you may either take a taxi (roughly a 15 minute ride) or catch a bus to Mount Eliza Village.

Airport Bus

The Frankston and Peninsula Airport Shuttle bus service (www.fapas.com.au) runs between Tullamarine Airport and Mount Eliza. Pick-ups in Mount Eliza are from 84 Mount Eliza Way, the bus stop opposite Safeways. The drop-off point is in front of the Mount Eliza Post Office. Melways: Map 105 Ref F1.

Major Roadways

Mount Eliza is served by two major roadways, the Nepean Highway and Moorooduc Highway.

The Nepean Highway runs south from the centre of Melbourne to Portsea, along the eastern shore of Port Phillip. It is the primary road route to central Melbourne from Melbourne’s southern suburbs. The Nepean Highway has kept the old Australian State Route 3 signage throughout the suburbs but is designated Australian Alphanumeric State Route B110 at the town of Mornington.

The Moorooduc Highway runs from Frankston to Mount Martha.

Mount Eliza unit QR CodeG’day,

It’s Lloyd Borrett here, Cheryl’s partner.

On Friday, 2nd March 2012, we added a Quick Response (QR) Code to the display board in front of Cheryl’s home unit for sale at 5/67 Canadian Bay Road, Mount Eliza. Well, why wouldn’t we. It’s just so easy to do, and costs nothing to do.

If just a handful of people were to use the QR Code to access the shortened uniform resource locator (URL) web page address embedded into the code, and ‘click’ through to this Mount Eliza Unit For Sale blog, then that would indeed be a good result.

Of course, QR Codes are a relatively new technology and only just starting to be used in Australia for marketing purposes. Thus you wouldn’t think there would be many people around who would recognise a QR Code on a display board, let alone then actually use their smartphone or tablet to take a photo of it and ‘click’ through to this website.

Well, that’s what I thought, so I was thinking that we’d see very little web site traffic via the QR Code. In fact, I thought we’d be lucky if even one person did it.

Keep in mind that this QR Code is on an ordinary real estate display board, just like the thousands you see in the suburbs of any major city each day. And, like most such real estate display boards, it’s not in a prime advertising position where there are the hundreds or thousands of passers by that those paying to use prime commercial outdoor advertising locations are expecting.

On Monday night I checked the history of the use of the shortened web URL encoded into the QR Code on the display board. I found that after just three days there had already been 12 clicks. Simply amazing!

Now we know one of the clicks was me testing the QR Code when it was created. So that means we’ve actually had eleven real clicks from people who have seen the QR Code on the display board and used it. Still fantastic.

Of course, time will tell if what the people found on this web site when they clicked through, inspired them to want to see Cheryl’s Mount Eliza home unit for themselves and contact Eview Real Estate Partners, our real estate agents.

Mount Eliza unit display board with QR Code

The QR Code on the display board at the Mount Eliza unit for sale.

Our reasons for doing this WordPress based blog and using online technology to help our real estate agent sell Cheryl’s home unit are simple.

First we can. I know a thing or two about online marketing, social media, digital PR and web technology. It’s what I do. See my profile on LinkedIn.

Second, most real estate agents don’t have the knowledge, time or resources to do this stuff. But we do. It’s in our best interest to help our agent to uniquely promote our property and enhance our prospects for better sales results.

Thirdly, no real estate agent can know the property as well as we do. Providing information to excite and engage buyers with socially-driven photos, videos and stories about the home unit and what it’s like to live in the Mount Eliza area, as we’re doing on this blog, just might help to make the property more attractive to a prospective buyer.

Plus this gives me an opportunity to try a few ‘out-of-the-box’ ideas not commonly being used by the majority of real estate agents. Such as this experiment with QR Codes. Sure, it’s a very limited experiment, with only partially quantified results, but it’s looking very promising so far.

Once again, the web proves to be unpredictable. The major thing you learn in online sales and marketing is that you can never assume anything about what will or won’t work online. Until you test, measure and compare it, you won’t know for sure. And the results from that process are often the opposite of what you’d expect.

Real Estate Agent use of QR Codes

Those in the real estate game should be considering using QR Codes, especially given it would cost them nothing to do it, and it’s so easy to do.

When a real estate agent lists a property anywhere in Australia, the vast majority of the properties end up with multiple web site pages advertising the property. The property will typically be listed on realestate.com.au and/or domain.com.au. More than likely, there will also be a listing for the property on the real estate agent’s own web site. And each of these listings has a unique URL that can be encoded into a QR Code.

The real estate agent can easily set up an account with a URL shortening service such as bitly, for free. These services enable you to collect, organize, shorten and share links.

The real estate agent can then use that free account to generate a QR Code image file with the unique URL for the web page of the property’s listing on their own web site embedded into it, for free.

The real estate agent can give that QR Code image file, together with the other images for the property, to whoever they use to produce the display board and printed flyers/brochures.

Thus it would cost the real estate agent nothing extra to have the QR Code on their display boards and flyers.

The real estate agent can use the free account to access the information about how many times the QR Code was used to ‘click’ through to the web page, and let their clients know as well.

It’s a value added service to their clients, for free. There aren’t many of those in the real estate game.

If the use of the QR Code generates just one extra inquiry, the real estate agent is ahead of the pack.

And if such an inquiry results in an offer, or helps to drive other offer prices up, then the real estate agent and the client will be very happy.

Track, measure and analyse

The unique features of QR Codes, combined with the use of web analytics, means you can easily track and measure what advertising methods are working best for your real estate business.

No doubt you know that you can add unique identifying codes to the web page URLs that you use in emails, adverts etc. For example: http://www.mountelizaunit.com.au/?utm_source=qrcode&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=2012-Mar in an email, http://www.mountelizaunit.com.au/?utm_source=qrcode&utm_medium=advert&utm_campaign=2012-Mar-05-herald-sun in a print advert, http://www.mountelizaunit.com.au/?utm_source=qrcode&utm_medium=outdoor&utm_campaign=display-board for the display board etc. Doing so then enables you to use web analytics to track, measure and analyse just how many times the URLs are being used, plus relate them to their source and destination.

But of course we typically don’t do this because these URLs are so lengthy and cumbersome nobody would type them in. Or we just don’t have the space to print them in adverts or on flyers. Enter the URL shortening service.

You can put the long and cumbersome tracking URL through the shortening service and get something like http://bit.ly/wPrdE7. Now you can actually find space to use the shortened URL in printed form and some people just might enter it into their browser. Plus the URL shortening service can tell you how many times each of those unique shortened URLs has been used.

But now you can also turn the shortened URL into a QR Code. So in each print advert, on each display board, and on the flyer for each property, you print a QR Code image generated using the shortened form of its corresponding tracking URL. And again, you get to track, measure and analyse their use.

That’s the beauty of online sales, marketing and communications done properly. It’s finally possible to actually know what is working and what isn’t, plus accurately measure the differences any changes make.

Mt Eliza DeliThe Mount Eliza Deli and Milk Bar in the Mount Eliza Village at 104 Mt Eliza Way is a place I often go to as a near-by local to meet up with friends after work and have a friendly chat over a delicious coffee. They’re open till 6 pm weekdays, so we have plenty of time for a good chin wag.

The Mount Eliza Deli also do brilliant Boscastle pies and fresh sandwiches, plus yummy cakes and tasty salads for lunches.

The shelves hold all the usual deli items you need, but the cornucopia of specialist gourmet foods inside is what I like the most.

Kitchen at Mount Eliza home unit for saleSharing my thoughts about the Mount Eliza home unit and writing this blog has made me realise just what I have achieved since moving in just over two years ago.

Kitchen renovations

The kitchen was only partly renovated when I bought the unit. There were still some old cupboards on the wall that did not line up with the new kitchen bench and a very old extraction fan in the window that sounded like a helicopter taking off when you turned it on.

I lived with my new fridge jutting out into the kitchen for a while, but knew it was only temporary and that it would fit in the space properly when the renovations were complete. As you can see from the photo, my skilled cabinet maker fixed this problem, plus installed a shelf above the bench for my microwave and built more cupboards and shelves for the wall above the stove. A new Westinghouse range hood, plus replacement glass in the window, finished it all off.

Bathroom/Laundry renovations

The renovations to the bathroom, laundry and toilet was another matter altogether. I’m sorry now that I didn’t take before and after photos of this area as, although it was in reasonable condition, the original layout was simply dreadful.

We totally gutted it and started afresh. I’m more than happy with the results. It’s now a very usable space with a clean, modern look, new shower, basin, taps, wall fan, laundry trough and plenty of bench space, shelving and lighting. The matching floor tiles in the separate toilet give that room a fresh look as well.

Bedroom storage renovations

I had a wonderful father/son team who worked on the renovations for me. The son is an expert tiler and bathroom renovator, while his father is a skilled cabinet maker, who took care of all my storage needs.

He replaced the built-in robes in the bedrooms with more shelving and storage space in each, plus gave the linen cupboard a revamp. They have all been constructed in white laminate that matches the new kitchen and bathroom/laundry cupboards.

New Blinds

Just simple things, like replacing the old window curtains with clean and fresh looking day and night window blinds throughout the apartment, made a bigger difference than you’d expect. Not only do they look so much better, they give it an up-to-date feel, modern lines and make the rooms look bigger and lighter than before.

An outside blind on the bathroom window helps to keep that room much cooler in summer as well.

Heating and cooling

I also had a Mitsubishi Electric G-inverter split system room air conditioner/heater installed in the lounge area. The apartment had no heating or cooling when I bought it. Being solid brick with a concrete base and ceilings, the temperature stays remarkably even. However it is nice to now have a backup in place for those really hot summer days and cold winter nights that can happen from time to time.

External storage

I had a small, Colourbond outdoor storage unit (approx. 2.25 m by 0.78 m) installed on the rear terrace. It’s great for keeping gardening gear and sporting goods out-of-the-way and secure.

Exterior paintwork

In my first year in the home unit the body corporate had all of the exterior paintwork re-done. So that’s something that won’t need to be revisited for quite some years to come.

Main bedroom at Mount Eliza unit for saleGetting the right amount of sleep is one of the cornerstones of wellness, allowing you to re-energize your mind and body and become more productive, mentally sharp, emotionally balanced, and full of energy all day long. The serene bedroom environment in my home unit makes it easy to enter the world of deep comfortable sleep and sets me up properly for the following day.

My musician son works through the nights on weekends and needs to sleep during the following day. He found the home unit, the neighbours and the Mount Eliza Village area so quiet and peaceful, he could finally get a sound sleep during the day. Thus he has been able to fully tap into the restorative power of sleep and get to the next gig fully refreshed and ready to perform at his best.

Mt Eliza Village Fruits deliver consistently high quality produce and great service, at competitive prices. They have fresh fruit and vegetables, a nice selection of cut flowers, gourmet groceries including cheeses, dips, specialised pastas, sourdough breads and fresh yoghurt, plus much more.

They even have some growers delivering direct to the store, which means this produce is fresher and locally grown.

But sometimes I just drop by for a refreshing drink from the very popular juice bar. Their freshly made smoothies and juices are delightful and a healthy alternative.

Just got back from going for a swim down at the Canadian Bay beach. From my Mount Eliza home unit to the Canadian Bay beach, is just a 1,400 metres (1.4 km) walk or drive according to Google Maps.

On really hot days like today, it can get busy at this beach, but it’s never overcrowded, unlike most other popular bay beaches.

The predominance of family groups creates a great fun beach atmosphere. And being a protected bay beach it’s also quite safe in the water even though it’s not patrolled.

Midweek I often head down to this beach after work to read the paper undisturbed, have a swim and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere.

There are also set times when dogs are allowed, which means you’ll often see dog lovers out for a walk with their canine mates. It’s great fun to watch the dogs enjoying the beach and going in for a swim.

While most only head down to the beach in summer, I find that even when the weather is cooler it’s a great place for a walk all year round.

Mount Eliza Farmers MarketOne of the great delights of living so close to the Mount Eliza Village is the wide diversity of community activities that happen there. And this weekend is no exception. The Mt Eliza Farmers’ Market is happening on Sunday, 26th February 2012.

I’ll be nominating the market for the Delicious Magazine Awards – it’s a chance to win a trip for two to Hamilton Island! Apparently Maggie Beer (one of the judges) has already visited to do some homework!

Market Highlights

This month’s highlight of the market will be the return of ‘Pure Vegies’. Caroline’s vegetables are grown right here in Mt Eliza and she will be selling this Sunday: sun ripened tomatoes (get in quick), beetroots, carrots, pumpkins, spring onions and whatever else is ready to be picked the morning of the market. It doesn’t get much fresher than that!

Also at the market this month will be: local garlic, organic leafy greens, Flinders wood fired authentic sourdough breads, new season Red Hill apples and pears, breakfast plates made with ingredients from the market (poached eggs atop a salad of healthy scrummy goodies), bunches of local wildflower arrangements, freshly squeezed juices with ingredients from the market, free range eggs, live hens (if it isn’t too hot) and more.

So come along and help me to support our local farmers obtain a fair price for their hard work. We are constantly being hammered with cheap imported fruit and vegetables, often of inferior quality, that most people in government or authority seem oblivious to the impact it is having on agriculture. Couple this with the high mark-up prices supermarkets charge compared to what the farmer gets, and it’s difficult to see how agriculture can survive for long in this country.

Just last week we saw in Safeway, Australian Valencia oranges for $4.98 per kg (almost $5000 /tonne) when farmers are receiving less than $150 / tonne (15 cents per kg) for the same fruit.

Let’s make a difference and keep Australian farmers on the land!

Alejandro the Mexican musician will be strumming his tunes from 9:30 am – 1:00 pm on the Village Green. So there’s something for everyone.

Mount Eliza unit foyer entrance and front balcony/patioHi, my name is Cheryl Lees.

Well, now it’s finally time to sell my much loved home unit / apartment at 5/67 Canadian Bay Road, Mount Eliza VIC 3930, Australia. I’m moving with my partner into a large house on a half-acre block in Frankston South, not very far away! And so, I’ve put my Mount Eliza home unit on the market.

Thus my two bedroom home unit / apartment, located metres away from Mount Eliza Village, on the corner of Canadian Bay Road and Village Lane, is now up for sale.

Mount Eliza Unit History

I work in Mount Eliza at The Peninsula School, and I’d rented in the Mount Eliza area for a few years before finally purchasing my home unit. It’s been a delightful place to live, especially as it’s so close to the beach, the Mount Eliza Village shops, and my work.

Yes, being close to the beach is important! I’m a water babe who has always lived near the beach and spent plenty of time in the water all year long. I typically head off for one holiday a year to go boogie boarding on Australia’s east coast. And if possible, I also like to get away for a scuba diving holiday as well. From the unit in Mount Eliza, the beach is just a delightful walk away, so it’s easy to get my salt water fix.

When I first moved in to the apartment a few years ago, the bathroom, laundry and kitchen all needed a bit of a renovation to bring them up-to-speed. This was all done by a great team of highly professional trades people, and the result is simply fantastic!

The week I moved in to my home unit, I also met my partner and soul mate Lloyd Borrett. I soon ended up spending more time at Lloyd’s place in Cranbourne North, than at my Mount Eliza unit.

My musician son moved into the Mount Eliza apartment. He works through the nights on weekends and needs to sleep during the following day. He found the home unit, the neighbours and the Mount Eliza Village area so peaceful, he could finally get a sound sleep during the day.

He too fell in love with the Mount Eliza unit, making it a real green haven with plants everywhere on the front balcony and rear terrace.

Back in mid-January 2012, Lloyd and I finally decided to sell our two places and get something where we can live more comfortably together.

The first call went out to David Politakis at Eview Real Estate Partners, Frankston. I’ve known David for a few years via our mutual interest in scuba diving and membership of the Victorian Sub-Aqua Group (VSAG). So David is the real estate agent handling the sale of the apartment for me, assisted by Janice Dunn. If you like what you see of the place on this web site, please give either of them a call to arrange an inspection. Click here for Contact Details.

A few years ago, Lloyd had built a web site to help sell his rural property, Raydon. It was a success. So he’s on the job again, this time also trying to leverage the power of social media, especially Twitter. We hope you like the results.

Regards, Cheryl Lees.
