we love this because…

when we enter the driveway and close the gates behind us, we feel like we have escaped to the country.

in fact the gardens were originally developed many years ago by the Italian family owners, who planted all the fruit trees and today the large garden with canopied Sweet Almond tree and fire pit location is perfect for hot sunny days in the shade or cold winter nights under the stars, toasting marshmallows on the fire.

we live on The Verandah as that Italian family would have done years ago.  Now there is a cosy lounge, festoon lighting and large dining bench for sharing lovely meals and enjoying life with family and friends. So nothing much has changed.

We love the cottage feel inside with its log fire and open plan living space with bedrooms and bathrooms on either side.

The kids run to the seperate games room in the studio where they can hang out with friends away from the adults.

Our favourite spot on a sunny day is swinging in the hammock in the orchard with a great holiday read and possibly a glass of bubbly.

When we are feeling energetic we head to the Blairgowrie Cafe only a 30-minute walk or we settle ourselves on the beach and swim in the shallow waters watching the yachts bob up and down.

At night we either head into Sorrento for a choice of restaurants or keep it local in Blairgowrie at the wonderful Panda for dinner and drinks.


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

Yay! a beautiful secure garden with fences to keep me safe.  There is lots of shade for me to sleep under in the summer and a perfect verandah for anytime to keep me out of the weather.  The beach nearby is fine for me to walk on a lead but my hoomans take me to the many leash free beaches and parks in the area.

I would highly recommend the property to any friends and family wanting a relaxing getaway on the Mornington Penninsula. The position was fabulous as it is in a quiet secure area close to some nice walks to take the dogs while the beach is a short drive or stroll approx 2 kms away. Having the games room with a pool table, table tennis and a huge range of board games supplied, you are never short of things to keep you entertained. And if you prefer to soak up the sun in the huge 2 level gardens there is ample seating and a BBQ and fire pit to enjoy. The indoor furnishings were very welcoming. Clean and comfortable with good heating and plenty of adequate supplies in the kitchen area so all you really need are your guests and you are in for a great stay!

The property was beautifully presented, with everything we needed for a weekend in. The beds were very comfortable and electric blankets were a great addition. We stayed for a much needed girls' weekend away. The house itself was exceptionally clean and the indoor fireplace provided a lovely warmth. The grounds were extensive and provided lots of points of interest - hammock, firepit, beautiful big sweet almond tree, lovely gardens - which could be enjoyed from within or from the balcony while enjoying a morning coffee or an evening drink. It was truly a fun filled relaxing weekend enriched by the quality of the accommodation.

The most amazing home away from home! Absolutely loved our stay at The Verandah and would highly recommend it to anyone :)

Lovely house and great property. Clean, had everything we needed. Great location, close to town but also feels like you a million miles away. Dog treats where very nice.

We had a lovely time when we stayed with family members at "The Verandah" this year. The location between Rye and Blairgowrie was perfect. The large secure front yard which catered for lots of activities was wonderful for both children and dogs. It also allowed for ample room to park cars off the street. Having a separate games room with a bathroom and kitchenette was a bonus. The house was very comfortable and having four bedrooms and two bathrooms meant there was room for everyone. The large dinning areas both inside the house and on the sheltered front verandah allowed us to choose where to dine depending on the weather. We will certainly consider staying here again.

We were very delighted at our first sight of The Verandah With a lovely fruit tree and lawn garden We made good use of the versatile living ding space as well as the spacious verandah itself. The main bedrooms were spotlessly clean, attractive, and comfortable The well equipped games room was a hit with the younger family members and there was ample off road parking space. We would definitely return!
