Excellent property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic weekend with our precious family! It was perfect for a wide range of ages. We all spent time enjoying the views, tennis court, basketball ring & hot tub. Even though it was cold, the pool was used as a plunge pool a couple of times. There were books, magazines, kids toys, plenty of wood for the open fires....felt like home the minute we walked in the door. Would love to go back!!

Retreat was located in a great area with many places to visit close by. Even though it was winter the open wood fire was lovely and comfortable. Open spacious entertaining area was wonderful. Children enjoyed tennis court with basketball ring.

Cosy yet spacious

  • 5 of 5

The property is ideal for a large family with a variety of flexible areas. The home is large yet has a really cosy and homely feel. The location is perfect to enjoy so many of the offerings on the Mornington Peninsula. Our family loved being able to spend precious time together in complete comfort. The views are an added bonus of this lovely property. The spa and tennis courts are must-dos and great fun.

Fantastic stay with MNR! Such a beautiful and peaceful property, and I am already counting the days until I can return! We held a small wedding ceremony on site, and George was very helpful and accommodating. Would not change a thing!
