everything you hope for in a beach house

we love this because…

As a family when we think if a beach holiday house we hope for white weatherboards, porthole style windows and timber boardwalks.  So when we arrived at NELSON BY THE SEA we knew we had found the perfect escape.

Tucked away in a quiet pocket close to Sorrento and the beach it was an easy 15-minute walk to the Sorrento Sailing Club and a little longer to walk into Sorento townships itself.

We stayed with extended family and teenage kids.  there was space for everyone inside this contemporary house with its high cathedral ceilings, wooden floorboards and contrasting beams.

The grandparents sat and read outside, the kids played billiards downstairs and watched movies but everyone came together on the huge deck with hydrotherapy spa.  There is a beautiful Peppercorn Tree in the garden and the grassed lawn was perfect for a bit of backyard cricket and safe for our pooch.

We took a short walk to the private (shared) tennis court close by, popped our name down on the list to reserve it for a friendly game and even had a bbq close by with drinks while we competed in our tournament.

We walked the dog to the Koonya Dog Beach which only takes about 20 minutes and he loves the shallow waters that go out for miles.

For dinner, “The Baths” is our favourite restaurant and is only a 30-minute walk away.  We watch the Sorrento/Queenscliff ferry dock on the hour and the weather change across the bay.  For something special, we love Loquat and its only a 20-minute walk from Nelson by the Sea.


What fun! a new house to visit that lets four-legged friends like me sleep inside.

Yay! a garden with tall fences to keep me safe.  Love the trees and bushes, there are lots of interesting smells.  Are those possums in the trees?

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.

Would recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxed but special beach getaway. the place was perfect for families and friends, really clean, modern and well maintained. We absolutely loved it and would definitely stay again.

Nelson by the Sea is a beautiful home in a great location. It was the perfect place for teenagers with bedrooms and living areas at separate ends of the house. The games room also gave them extra space. It is an easy walk into Sorrento and to the beach. This also gave them extra independence. Our dogs got to enjoy having the whole of Sorrento beach to themselves later in the evening - every night after eight. Overall a fabulous week enjoyed by the whole family.

We had a wonderful family holiday staying at Nelsons by the Sea. The property was very clean, spacious and well equiped. My kids really enjoyed having the spa and games room. We’re already looking forward to our next stay!
