Overview

About the property

3 bedroom cottage a short walk from beautiful Dromana beach.

Located a short stroll from the beautiful shores of Dromana and Safety Beach, this sweet little beach house is awaiting your company. Simply kick off your shoes and unwind in the peaceful setting or paddle in the shallow waters of the bay.

Freshly painted, this cosy and simple home-away-from-home has a light and airy open plan with 3 bedrooms, a lounge and equipped kitchen.

The property sleeps up to 6 (plus a baby) in 3 bedrooms.

* Bedroom 1: Comfortable Pillow-top Queen

* Bedroom 2: Supportive Queen-sized bed

* Bedroom 3: 1 King Single, 1 Single and 1 Cot

All pillows, mattress protectors and doonas are provided. Linen (including bed sheets and bath towels) are available to hire for $10 per person, or you are welcome to bring your own.

Property features include a large open backyard with an entertaining kids cubby with slide, and an outdoor barbecue where you can keep an eye out for ducks and rosellas. Ample off street parking is available with room for several cars, boat and jetskis. The well-presented interior has a newly renovated bathroom, a new LCD TV, DVD/blu-ray player, locally sourced artwork, new air-conditioner / heater split system, new washing machine, a microwave, dishwasher, 240L fridge, and shallow inbuilt bath perfect for kids. (High chair, change mat, steriliser and baby monitor are also available on request.)

Why squish into a cheap caravan park when you can stay in a whole house for less than the price? Why lie on a tent air-mattress, when you can relax in comfortable accommodation? Ripplesea offers great value and is available for bookings of 2 or more nights. In peak periods, weekly stays are preferred. Please feel free to discuss any personal requests.

Parties are not permitted. Schoolies and student groups are not permitted. Pets are not permitted. Strictly no smoking.

So, enjoy a relaxing stay at this quiet and laid-back abode, with your family and friends. Stroll to the stunning local beaches, paddle in the clear waters, wander along to the local cafes or explore all that the beautiful Mornington Peninsula has to offer. Perhaps a day at the Mornington Hot Springs is in order, or a round of golf is your forte, or wine tasting, art gazing, views from atop Arthurs seat, fishing from the pier, meandering through the National Parks, snuggling at the Drive-Inn, scouring the markets, scoffing vanilla slices in Sorrento, ascending the lighthouses, getting lost in the Childrens Mazes or horseback riding in the shallows. Whatever the plan, use Ripplesea in Dromana as your base.

Fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful 10 stays at Ripplesea. A beautifully presented family holiday home. The home was very clean and extremely comfortable, with lots of toys for our children to play with and the cubby house was a huge hit! A short walk to the beach and main shops and located in a whisper quiet street, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have rebooked for next summer. Naomi was such a delight to deal with. We couldn't recommend this home highly enough.

Beautifully appointed holiday home

  • 5 of 5

My family had a week at Ripplesea, with two little boys, and it was the perfect family holiday home, with a cubby full of children's toys, a huge safe back yard and a wonderfully presented three bedroom home with every detail thought of for your comfort. Naomi was a pleasure to deal with, and responded promptly when contacted. Highly recommend.

Good value for money

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely stay. Home is compact but clean and cheery. Master bed comfy. Kitchen had little extras like Tupperware, S&P, gladwrap and sauces, laundry had detergent and adequate toilet paper for our stay (these little things always prove handy in a rental). Comfy lounges (no Foxtel/tbox). Backyard is large and grassy. Cubby house with large underneath sandpit was clean (for outdoors) and well stocked with toys. Kids room had some indoor toys and there were lots of DVDs for young children (<5yrs). Not a walk to beach with young kids, but good value for money overall.

Fantastic holiday house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Ripplesea! The house is simply, but very well set up for a family holiday. It has good size rooms and plenty for the kids to do, from the Nintendo 64, to the good size yard, to the fantastic cubby house at the back. The location is also great - a short drive away from shops and beaches, but in a quiet block with plenty of space and peace to relax.

As mentioned in other reviews, the owner is a pleasure to deal with: prompt to reply to queries, flexible with arrangements and warm and courteous in manner. We highly recommend this property!

An excellent house for families

  • 5 of 5

Ripplesea is a gorgeous holiday home. It has lovely beach inspired decor that really made us feel like we were on a beach holiday! The house had everything we could ever have needed, it was incredibly comfortable and the children really enjoyed playing in the back yard and in the cubby house. The owner has been an absolute delight to deal with and has been very caring and considerate of us and our stay. We highly recommend Ripplesea to any families looking for a lovely home, in a good location for their next holiday.

Fantastic Family Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away by the fantastic set up at the house. Everything was so neat, tidy and clean. It was a perfect holiday home for us with 2 young kids. There is a massive backyard with an amazing cubby house in the back yard with all sorts of kids toys and furniture in it. Our kids spent most of their time in it. A fantastic location in a nice quiet pocket of Dromana. Naomi was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Would definitely go back for our next holiday.
