Coastal bush retreat - St. Andrews Beach

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

This stunning light-filled beach house boasts a vaulted ceiling, open plan in and outdoor living and is beautifully furnished to ensure you relax from the moment you walk in the door. The secluded beach house has a large wrap-around deck facilitating outdoor living year round. Sit out in the shade in summer or in the sun in winter in any one of the private deck areas. Large bi-fold doors open up on a warm day to let the outside in to the main living area. There is also a door leading off the master bedroom to the deck and sandy bushland outside.

Cross-ventilating windows, doors and bi-folds will allow the coastal breeze to move through the house. The house is fitted with a split cycle air conditioning and heating unit. There are also remote controlled tower fans in each room. This is not just a summer house, with a beautiful wood fire to warm yourself by, even the wettest and coldest winter day will feel cosy and relaxed as you sit in the light-flooded house overlooking the bush.

Catering for four adults, the house has two bedrooms, with a queen bed in the master bedroom and a double bed in the second bedroom. We provide linen and bath towels, however guests may wish to bring extra beach towels.

Enjoy cooking at home with the fully equipped kitchen (fridge/freezer, oven, cooktop, Nespresso machine and microwave) or on the BBQ on the deck. Our large outdoor table will allow you to indulge in long relaxed dinners on a warm summer’s night. Alternatively there is no shortage of dining options in the neighbouring towns of Sorrento, Portsea, Cape Schanck, Flinders and Red Hill.

A laundry with washing machine is available for your use.

Summer or winter, you will love the surrounding beaches. Try any one of the spectacular St. Andrews back beaches, (ten minutes walk or a couple of mins by car) Gunnamatta Ocean beach, the Rye Ocean beach or any one of the beautiful bay beaches.

The perfect size for one or two couples looking for a quiet retreat with access to the sought after beaches of St. Andrews beach or to take up any one of the many recreation and relaxation facilities that the Mornington Peninsula has to offer such as the Peninsula hot springs, horse-riding, golf, wine tasting, browsing the local markets, art galleries …. the list goes on. Make this holiday one to remember.

Great little property

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, it was warm and cosy, with a large decking to enjoy. (The power was switched off at the mains which we didnt know about, so the fridge wasnt cold, but pretty easily solved).

Lovely homey getaway

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a weekend and felt at home. Fireplace was great and throw rugs on the couch were perfect for a winter weekend away. It's a small house but well designed and with so many windows doesn't feel small. Lovely views of landscape

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We had an inspiring and relaxing time at the Coastal bush retreat. From the moment we arrived at the house we felt relaxed. The kids were excited to be staying in a 'tree house'- and that is the feel- loved the large windows looking out to tee trees from every aspect. The scandi, minimalistic decor was lovely. The fireplace and large shower with stone floor are great additions- and the dining table that doubles for table tennis-fun! Comfy beds and everything u could need for a cosy winter escape. Emma was fantastic to deal with- late checkout was a great bonus!

A lovely family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautifully designed holiday house, it was a delight to spend time here. Surrounded by native trees, it felt peaceful and private, clean and comfortable. Emma accommodated our requests happily and promptly. We would recommend anyone looking to explore the peninsula from a modern oasis to book straight away, you won't be disappointed. Thanks Emma for a gorgeous family holiday :)
