Who We Are
Ocean Blue Coastal Retreats is a tourism accommodation business that was started in 2008 by Sian and Peter West.
As Mornington Peninsula holiday homeowners themselves since 2004, they had also been running an accommodation tourism business since 2006. After numerous calls from frustrated holiday homeowners asking if they offered a property management service, they set up Ocean Blue Coastal Retreats in 2008. They created a service that focused on a high level of customer service to both the guest and the owner.
Ocean Blue Coastal Retreats has now grown to 30+ properties and a staff of 11 dedicated and passionate individuals who put the guest's tourism experience at the forefront of what they do. This goes hand in hand with working with their owner partners. They take pride in looking after owner properties making them the best holiday rental offerings available on the Mornington Peninsula, through meticulous detail and exemplary customer service.
Trish - the owner of Glen Mor
"I have been short term holiday renting my property for quite a few years now and recently engaged Ocean Blue Coastal Retreats to take over the management of my property. I am so astonished at the difference between OCEAN BLUE COASTAL RETREATS and other management companies. The efficiency and communication of Sian and staff including the magnificent work Sharon and her cleaning team do have allowed me to let go and concentrate on my personal work instead of worrying about whether my house has been cleaned well enough for the next guests or whether they are thinking about how to maximize bookings during quieter times of the year. I am thrilled that I made the move and look forward to many more years of OCEAN BLUE COASTAL RETREATS managing my property. All the team are especially welcoming and helpful and truly do care about their properties as if they were their own.
A special mention to Peter at ‘ALL WASHED OUT’ for making sure linen is cleaned and ready to go. The bookings, the cleans, the laundry it just all just flows perfectly. Thank you, Sian, Sharon and the whole team at Ocean Blue Coastal Retreats."

Cate - Owner of Mt Martha Retreat
"We handed over our property for holiday letting to Ocean Blue Coastal Retreats in April 2015. Sian and Peter made the transition from our property is our home to a holiday let extremely easy, they were very professional, but more importantly, made us feel comfortable and at ease with our decision. We have been happy with the bookings achieved in the first year, which we understand can be slow for the first time property on the market. Ocean Blue has been extremely professional on all matters regarding bookings, payments of rental returns and providing advice and prompt responses to our queries. Sian and Peter have gone out of their way to assist us with all our queries and requests. We recently returned to our property to find all is well, confirming our decision to go with Ocean Blue Coastal Retreats. We would recommend them to any property owners interested in finding managers for holiday lets."
