The Magic of the Blue Circle - this blue area encircles the property with a 1km radius of coastal heaven. You would be hard-pressed to find a better location on the Mornington Peninsula. "We enjoyed a short walk to the back beach and were blown away by how breathtaking and secluded it was... Really a magical experience. I would have no hesitations to come back and spend another weekend away in this lovely beach house. Thanks again Elia!!" James, March 2016. "Lots of space and a lovely verandah with beautiful bay views. Elia was an excellent host and was always easily contactable! Would definitely recommend staying at this property and wouldn't hesitate to book again!!" Mia, March 2016. The entry - open plan dining and kitchen with Coonara fireplace.

SORRY NO SCHOOLIES. This family friendly Mornington Peninsula beach pad offers the perfect place to escape – perched above the Stringer Reserve, with views across the bay and out to The Dandenong Ranges on a clear day – this truly is the life, even for just a few days.

The space

The Magic of the Blue Circle

Because there's nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it's sent away."― Sarah Kay

You know you're on holiday when you're leaning on the deck with a wine in hand, your face to the sea breeze – the open sky a chorus of colour as the sun sets over the Mornington Peninsula.

Nestled on the narrowest part of the peninsula, on the coveted stretch towards Sorrento, this blue circle position offers a 1km radius of coastal heaven: the bay beach just a 650m walk, and the rugged beauty of the back beach a 10-minute stroll down Beach Avenue.

Sit at the retro bar, and cast your gaze across the treetops to the vast blue of Port Phillip Bay, the shipping channel in the distance, sailed by the British in 1801 aboard the HMS Lady Nelson.

Plan a lazy day on the beach – the sandy foreshore and calm, safe shallows on your doorstep. Take in the picture perfect backdrop of a thriving boat harbour, home to the Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron and its bevvy of white winged sailboats.

Explore the cliff top walking tracks edging their way along the rugged surf of the Bass Strait coastline.

Immersed in nature – from the birdsong of the bush to the gentle lap of the waves on your feet – all that's left to do here is let go.

Relax. We've got your break covered.

A very beautiful space. Nothing feels overdone, it is a very comfortable house to stay in (the couch is particularly relaxing). A great space both for families with young children and for bigger groups. Elia and Nicole were great host - they responded very quickly to any requests, were lovely and personable in our email contact. Would definitely recommend this place both to family and friends, and anyone who is considering it.

Elia and his wife's love of travel has seen them occupy a camper-van for months on end to explore Europe, Australia and New Zealand. In the last five years they have spent almost an entire year travelling the globe, meticulously chronicling their experiences on their travel blog. They appreciate how valuable a helpful local is and that's what they strive to be as Airbnb hosts.

About Elia (bio lifted from a recent conference)

In addition to being an awesome AirBnB host, Elia is a Registered Nurse, paramedic and founding author of 2015's hottest new educational blog* Grave Lessons. In the line of duty he has been scratched, bitten and had his pearly whites praised by an envious and toothless octogenarian. His short attention span has made him well-suited to the many and varied short term interactions offered by his 16 year career in emergency nursing and pre-hospital care. He recently gained international attention for his article about the preventable death of three-year-old Ruby Chen which is the only reason we have invited him to participate in the 2015 International Conference for Emergency Nurses.

Elia enjoys being a husband, father, cyclist, and writing in the third person. Owing to an act of genetic serendipity Elia is as witty as he is lanky. He boasts a body surface area of 1.95 square metres. If he was actually worth his weight in gold he would be valued at AUD$3.7M. Why he insisted on those facts being included in his biography I will never know. Do yourself a favour and resist any urge you have to check out his blog.
