Lovely Seaside Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, bright well furnished ground floor apartment. We had everything we needed. Great central location - 10 minutes from The Enchanted Maze at Arthur's Seat, 15 minutes from Red Hill vineyards and restaurants, 5 minutes from McCrae beach and local shops. We stayed 2 nights and could have stayed longer as there is so much to do in the area.

Rayma, the owner, lives upstairs and is very hospitable and discreet. The area is a quiet suburb at the base of Arthur's Seat with views over the bay. Great spot for exploring the Mornington Peninsula.

Fabulous property

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our 7 night stay.

We enjoyed the quiet location whilst the beach, shops and everything we wanted/needed was still at our fingertips.

The property was spotless which I loved and exceptionally homely!

The hosts were a pleasure to deal with and we would return there in a heartbeat!

Highly recommend.

Modern and beachy unit.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend stay at this beach house in McCrae. It was spotlessly clean and cosy. Nearby to all the sights and central to all that the Mornington Peninsula has to offer.

The owner was very friendly and helpful. We'll definitely be back again soon.
