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 Verandah was a great place for our family weekend. We were blessed with perfect weather so were able to fully appreciate the garden spaces- the fire pit for marshmallows was a great hit with the grandchildren. The deck, with its large table, was used as was the spotless BBQ for outdoor meals. The hammock was a restful spot for both adults and children. Indoors was comfortable and it was a very successful stay!

Weekend stay for family was absolutely beautiful. Property very clean and communal spaces fabulous for our group. Will definitely stay again!

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.

Beautiful cosy house with lots of room for everyone and perfect for the dog. We had a wonderful stay as a family. The weather was cold but the fire was perfect!
