Cottage, Cape Schanck
Far from the madding crowd
we love this because…
we are far from the madding crowds in Rye and Rosebud during the summer months yet close enough to drive to the beach for long lazy summer days and a swim in the safe shallow waters.
EDELWEISS is perfect for us and our extended family to share. We spend time in the cosy lounge in winter with the log fire blazing, book swapping from the library. We love the large kitchen diner where we slide back the doors and bring the outdoors in. The deck is the loveliest place to relax with a book. The kids love the hanging chair and we love that there are lots of spaces for adults and children to get away and escape.
The kids love the upstairs lounge and make it their own den for the entire stay.
There are so many places to walk and wonder at the native flora and fauna (walk the Bushrangers Bay track in the late afternoon for an encounter with a Kangaroo as they leap from the lower ground to the upper right across your path). From the Cape Schanck lighthouse car park, there is a network of scenic walks and 200 metres east of Cape Schanck is the lookout where Bushrangers Bay Walk commences along the cliff tops of this untouched coastline. Along Main Creek is the Two Bay Walking Track stretching 26km through the countryside of the Mornington Peninsula.
For all things food, we head to the village of FLINDERS a short drive away and especially Pier Provedore. Here we grab coffee and provisions for dinner at home.
For a special evening, we head to the RACV Cape Schanck Resort where we grab a cocktail in the bar lounge and then eat at either Cape Restaurant or Samphire to complete our luxury escape.

What fun! a new house to visit that lets four-legged friends like me sleep inside.
Yay! a garden with fences to keep me safe. Love the lawn and the bushes to explore.
And there’s a special basket just for me. No way! What’s in there? Ooh, ooh! a treat from PAWDINKUM. I LOVE THIS PLACE.

It was perfect for the 2 families that stayed, having 2 beds and a bath on each storey, and the yard was very secure for both the dogs and children.

This property was perfect for a group of 4 couples with young kids including a dog. It was only a short 15mins drive to Rosebud/Rye.

Beautiful house in a quiet location close to the lighthouse. The house suited our large group (8 adults & 2 kids) with its well equipped kitchen and great indoor/outdoor living spaces.
