We all had a fabulous time at Merricks North Retreat! We had 3 families there with young children and we found the house perfect. It was well appointed and presented and all the kids loved being so close to the horses! The toys were a hit too and the pool area was delightful! Thanks George and Co for a fabulous stay!

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!!

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.
