we love this because…

It’s our perfect beach house on the Mornington Peninsula.   Being so close to the beach you can hear the waves breaking at night and smell the sea air on the deck in summer. You will need to walk up a number of steps to the front entrance (it’s not for the faint-hearted or infirm!) as the house is situated high on a sand dune.

We love that there are so many spaces in this house for our group to not feel confined.  Some choose to head to the front garden and light a fire in the firepit, sit around and chat under the gazebo.

Others swim and lounge around the sparkling pool (solar heated) or play a game of pool in the lower lounge. We choose drinks on the lower deck sitting on bar stools at a high table. It’s our location for evening cocktails, but we all come together around the dining table that seats everyone.

We love to walk to the end of the road and take the pathway to the Coastal Walking Track of the Point Nepean National Park and then come back in a loop passing Rye Ocean Beach and we watch the surfers mastering the waves. Walking the length of the beach we watch the waves crash against the shore and experience the reinvigorating power of the sea air, a relaxing and a reconnecting with nature.

For dinner or lunch, we head to St Andrew’s Beach Brewery and its busy vibe.  Book one of the old horse stables for your group and try a paddle of beer.  For coffee, we head to Hunter Cafe and Store in the small set of shops at Dundas Street a 2-minute walk away.

Please note that the property has security cameras outside that monitor the exterior, including the pool area.

IMPORTANT TO NOTE – Property is suitable for extended family groups only – maximum of 10 adults plus additional children


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.

Gorgeous property on the top of a hill. Amazing open living spaces with comfortable couches and plenty of things to do. Board games in the cupboard, billiard table downstairs, televisions in living areas and a good simple pool and back yard. The front area is super private behind a nice gate and up a hill with a well established garden. A nice sitting area with a firepit welcomes you into the private oasis and at the top of the stairs there is a nice open deck area with an outdoor shower to one side (off a side path) and a full BBQ and outdoor umbrella if you choose to use it at the outdoor dining table. Would 100% recommend this property to anyone thinking about it. There is a lot of stairs but worth the hike!

Beautiful home only minutes away from the beach that made for a fantastic family getaway. We booked for 2 nights, however would recommend at least 3+ nights.

We had a wonderful stay at Sandy Shores. The layout of the property meant there was plenty of space for 3 families staying together. The pool was used endlessly and the lovely surrounding gardens made for a relaxing break. Close proximity to beach and cafes were welcomed.

It's ideal for a large family as it has 6 bedrooms and is perfect for 12 people and their fur babies. Plus it has a swimming pool, pool table and many more facilities. The whole family had a memorable time and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
