About the property

Close to bay and ocean beaches ( you can often sit outside and listen to the waves) - and lots of space so great to share with family or friends.

Very comfortably appointed large house with 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 living areas and separate kitchen /dining. Large north facing deck - with treed aspect. Walking distance to front and back beach - and only 5mins stroll to Koonya General Store for your morning paper.

All bedrooms have built in robes, main with ensuite / shower and WIR.

main bedroom - QS bed

2nd bedroom - QS bed

3rd bedroom - 2 singles plus cot

4th bedroom - 2 singles

Second bathroom has large shower and a separate toilet. Plastic baby bath on stand is kept in the laundry.

Great outdoor hot shower in the back garden to refresh after a day at the beach.

Main living area open fire, leather sofas and DVD and large digital TV.

Other living area is set up for the kids with toys and TV/Video/DVD.

Well equipped kitchen with breakfast bar and excellent coffee machine. Beautiful solid timber dining table which as is seats 8 comfortably but can extend to easily seat 10 adults.

Reverse Cycle heating / cooling units in kitchen/dining/main lounge area and in the second living area. Two portable fans for super hot days / nights.

The layout of the house means it is easy to let people sleep whilst others are in the kitchen / main lounge area. It is also very easy to have the kids playing in the rumpus area ( or sleeping in the bedrooms) and the parents relaxing in the other main living area.

Extensive north facing decking with large timber outdoor setting and large gas BBQ - ideal for entertaining. Automated louvre roof over BBQ area and part of deck allows full shade when required - or can be opened to bask in the sun.

Fence around the property to keep small kids safe. When fencing up the side of the house is in place this should also keep most dogs secured in the front garden.

Kids cubby house and great garden for the kids to explore. High chairs and cot always available. A double pusher is available on request. There are lots of kids toys / books / DVDs at the property. 2 Boogie boards and beach toys and shade tent are available at the house.

Plenty of space to easily handle 2 families with kids - or a group of 6 to 8 adults.

Accessed from a quiet dirt road - very little / no through traffic - an idyllic retreat.

Off street parking for 2 or 3 cars.

Please note security bond of $500 is required for all bookings.

This property really is a great place to escape to - surrounded by trees, and 'away from it all' - but only a short walk to front beach, back beach and the well known Koonya General Store. Sorrento and Blairgowrie shops are easily accessible - as are all the delights of the Peninsula - wineries, hot springs, surfing, fishing, awesome scenery and great coffee / dining. What more could you ask for ?

About Annette Sando

I live in Melbourne with my husband and 3 kids - we love being outdoors and being active - so the Mornington Peninsula with great options for walking, swimming, surfing, running and bike riding is a place we love getting away to.

Annette Sando purchased this house in 2011

Why Annette Sando chose Blairgowrie

We purchased this house after looking for many, many months. We wanted a house with plenty of space that we could invite family and friends down to and have the ability to enjoy time together - but also have space to spread out. Two living areas were an important criteria - as was having bedrooms far enough away from the main lounge that kids could be in bed and parents could still be up watching a movie. We love the house - just wish that we had more free weekends to spend there !!!!

Spacious amongst Moonah trees

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Annette's house on a number of occasions; why? Because we love it. It's a spacious, quiet house, thoughtfully designed and equipped.

The front yard which is the play area with cubby house is shaded by the Moonah trees.

Great house perfect for a large family group

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The house is clean and well equipped for families and kids. We had two toddlers staying and both loved the toys, books and games at the house. The cubby outside was a big favorite. The house is in a perfect location with the back beach a short walk away and sorrento and blairgowrie only a short 5 min drive. Thanks for a great weekend!

Awesome house

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 5 friends staying one night for our annual girls weekend away. The house was perfect for what we needed. It was a short drive to the Blairgowrie shops and absolutely huge. We all said it would also be great as a family holiday house. Lovely deck area outside too. Can't fault it.

Great family break

  • 5 of 5

We stayed across the new year with a toddler and newborn. We found the house ticked all of our boxes for space, comfort and location. There were also things available for use by the kids such as a highchair, cot and games. Annette was a great host who had everything set up so we could walk in and out with minimal fuss. We would absolutely stay again!
