About Mornington Peninsula Seastays

Just an easy commute from Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula is the ideal holiday location. Mornington Peninsula Seastays offers a range of beach houses across the peninsula, all located close to beautiful swimming beaches or wild and rugged surf back beaches. We have specially chosen a variety of properties to suit your needs and we are happy to offer advice on the local area.

Why Mornington Peninsula Seastays chose McCrae

Mirador McCrae is filled with character. It truly is a home away from home and you will feel the welcome atmosphere from the moment you open the door. So close to the water that on a windy day you can hear the waves crashing on the beach, Mirador is just around the corner from the hippest cafes and restaurants that the peninsula has to offer.

What makes this house unique

The wrap around balcony with tree top views makes you feel instantly relaxed. If it has been raining, you will see the trickle of coburn creek as it passes down the hill. McCrae beach is stunning year round. We have many return guests to Mirador!

Fantastic Property

Beautiful property, great location, we have stayed at many properties around here and this was certainly the best. Great being able to walk down the road to the beach and restaurants. Property had all and more than most, everything you need is here. Would definitely come again.

Great house & location

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful weekend at Mirador. The house, deck and garden are beautifully keep and very comfortable. A great family house, for all aged kids. We had so much fun in the house, down the beach and exploring the area.

Beautiful cosy location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over the weekend with 2 couples. The upstairs and downstairs areas offer plenty of privacy if required and the lounge/dining area with the open fire (which was already set up to light!) was cosy and warm, even with the wind and rain outside.

A great location with a few cafes/restaurants a couple of minutes walk away and a great central location on the peninsula, so a short 15 - 20 minute drive to wherever you want to visit.

We all felt very welcome and had a great time,

Highly recommended

Lovely weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Mirador close to the beach and cafés nearby.

After a long day, out in was perfect to snuggle in front of the fire place, play some board games and watch TV.

The place was well equipped with all we needed.
