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?

What a lovely, welcoming home in Metung. Our family stay (two adults, one 9 year old and a grandmother!) was made so comfortable and cosy -- we wished we could have stayed longer. Not only is the house gorgeously decorated, the beds and furniture are very comfortable and the kitchen is fully equipped. The view was the highlight for me, whether enjoying my breakfast on a sunny morning or watching the rain come down on a wet afternoon. Add the fire on the lower deck and a glass of wine and you are in heaven! We love Metung regardless, but this property made us not want to leave!

The Mariner is a beautifully thought out property, perfect for a relaxing getaway. It has everything you may need and you feel at home as soon as you walk in. Would definitely stay again (it was perfect for a girls weekend)!

Outstanding property which is the perfect mix of cosy but spacious. There are so many thoughtful touches throughout and the beds were so comfortable. The backyard was also so beautiful. However, the best part was the view from the top level and the balcony.

The Mariner, is a beautifully decorated house in a prime location. It has everything you need for a week stay. Wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back.
