About the property

Once a rundown beach shack, then an artists studio the Studio has been rescued to become a welcoming and comfortable holiday getaway for two.

From the spacious open plan living and dining room double glass doors open to a large north facing deck which catches the winter sun, summer shade and sea breezes. The kitchen also has a door to the deck making alfresco dining a must.

Open space and mature trees ensure that birdlife is abundant. To sit on the deck with your preferred beverage in hand and watch the birds take turns at the bird bath is a delight.

You dog is welcome to come on holiday with you but please let us know at time of booking. There is a small charge.

Built in the early 50's perhaps the Studio has absorbed memories of summer holidays that felt they would go on forever, long days on the beach and late nights sharing good times with families and friends.

The beach is close by and is perfect for long strolls, watching the sun set, or rise, and exploring rock pools.

Somers itself is a little off the beaten track but is well placed to explore the local eateries, wineries and other delights of the Mornington Peninsula and the secrets of Westernport.

Whether you are looking for a nostalgic beach holiday, a romantic retreat, or to just relax and unwind we're confident that the Studio will work its magic.

...and only just an hour from Melbourne.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the Studio. Lovely place for a relaxing time away for two and was perfect for dogs with a fully secure yard. Bronwyn was a perfect host and was very helpful with recommendations. The Studio itself was lovely and well equipped, perfect for those that prefer more 'homely' accomodation.

Relaxing, warm and comfy - even in winter!

  • 5 of 5

What a wild and wintery week! Rain, hail, wind...but no problems at the Studio :) With both heating and a wood fire (with heaps of firewood), along with a well equipped kitchen we had a fab stay there, walking/cycling/driving all over the peninsular, before coming home to our cosy home to enjoy local food and wine, reading and some TV. The Studio is full of eclectic art works, plenty of books and comfy chairs, creating a relaxing and warm place to 'just be'.

The perfect beach escape

  • 5 of 5

My dog and I had the pleasure of staying at the Studio for a week. Bronwen, the owner is very welcoming. The Studio is a reflection of her generousity and eye to detail. We enjoyed long walks on the beach and cosy days by the fire reading from the provided "library" I will be recommending a stay at the Studio to my friends.
