Beach House, Metung
Best Rate Guaranteed!
we love this because…
As we drive into Metung and catch our first glimpse of Chinamans Creek with boats and yachts securely moored in the still blue water we feel the cares of the world drop away.
There is always a sense of excitement as we open the door of The Mariner and enter a different world. A world of ships and history where you can be the captain of your own adventure.
We love the dark moody hallway as you enter reminiscent of the lower deck steerage on a boat with cabin numbers on the doors and interiors that can take you to the 1940s.
Walking up the steps to the dark and moody Captains Quarters with portraits of the infamous ‘Sea Dogs’ and a cosy fire, built in bookcase and day bed. We pick out a book that sends us back to our childhood and curl up under the reading lamp. On sunny days we open the doors and sit on the deck looking out to the lake and the water.
On the upper level the light and bright lounge is reminiscent of an ocean liners deck complete with lifejacket and water hose. Such a beautiful light an bright space with dining and a galley style kitchen.
On this level is the master suite with four poster bed and window seat, the first class ‘cabin’ with ensuite.
For the best lunch or dinner, we take a short stroll to the Metung Hotel (locally known as the Pub) and always book a table with a view. Its always bustling so you have to book. For breakfast, we eat at Aroma Coffee House or we head into Lakes Entrance and buy fresh prawns off the boats and come back and sit outside with local wine and feast.
What fun! a new house to visit that lets (SMALL) four-legged friends like me sleep inside.
Yay! a garden and courtyard with fences to keep me safe. Love the trees and bushes there are lots of interesting smells. Are those possums, koalas and kookaburras in the trees?

We throughly loved our time here at The Mariner! It was extremely clean and well appointed. The boat theme suited the town and the attention to detail was amazing. Everywhere you looked there were photos, books and other ‘boaty’ memorabilia that keep as entertained. There is a beautiful 2km walk along the river into town. You pass several piers and beautiful boats along the way. Great pub and pizza place. Back at the house we enjoyed BBQ’s on the deck and relaxed watching our favorite shows on Netflix. Really quite neighborhood. We will be back.

Really enjoyed our stay at the Mariner. The house is really well set out with plenary of room and interesting books and crannies the kids just loved. The kitchen is possibly the best equiped I have stayed which was really appreciated as we enjoyed some great home cooked meals before taking an evening stroll along the Metung boardwalk which is just a few steps away. I couldn’t recommend this more. All the home comforts you could ask for plus the additional little touches you would expect from a hotel.

Great property - beautiful decor and super comfortable. Good communication and accessible support. Very clean (considering pet friendly) and in a beautiful part of town. There are a lot of stairs, I traveled with one elderly person with limited mobility, the property was ok for us but might not be accessible for others and would be worth highlighting in the property description. Thank you - look forward to staying again

Delightful little cottage set amongst the treetops. All the creature comforts of a cosy home. Very clean and comfortable. Could spend the mornings lazying about and afternoons watching the bird show in treetops at sunset with the added bonus of the sound of the ocean off in the distance. Loved everything about this house, fully recommend this delightful little gem!

We loved our stay at the Mariner. the property was immaculately presented with very comfy couches and beds. Thoughtful touches, great styling with quirky, humorous touches made it a house with character and personality. It was refreshing to stay to stay in a place with style and taste! We felt very pampered. Thanks Ocean Blue Just a note - there are lots of stairs & levels so if you or your pooch have difficulty negotiating stairs you may be better off selecting another Ocean Blue property
