4 DOORS FROM MERRICKS BEACH ENTRANCE!

Merricks Beach is a secluded coastal community and one of the Mornington Peninsula’s best kept secrets! Our Super Host 5 Star Rated 50's renovated beach house is nestled just 4 doors down from the beach. It has 4 bedrooms and sleeps up to 6 comfortably ... well equipped with everything from quality linen and towels to suntan cream. You'll even find fresh bread, milk, coffee, etc on your arrival.

The space
Minimum 2 night bookings... peak seasons/school holidays 5 nights... it may not come up in peak searches if you are asking for say 3 days.

It’s a Beach House, not a Hotel, that guests are expected to look after as they would their own house and to leave as they found it for the next guests. You will see 'all' reviews on guests to date note how well they left the house... If per chance you are looking for a hotel experience with someone to pick up after you, this is not for you... or me :)

4 bedrooms, sleeps up to 6 comfortably
+ Kids room: no beds just games and cushions for the kids to hang out!
+ 1 x Spacious Bathroom, cute 50's style
+ 1 x Separate Toilet
NB Think twice before wanting to book with two families as it has one bathroom which most likely will not suit most.

The house is a lovely space, light and airy with polished floorboards and crisp white walls. With sliding doors onto the deck and yard, it's a perfect indoor/outdoor retreat boasting plenty of space to dine and lounge in the sun.

There is a functional kitchen with large fridge, stove-top, oven, dishwasher, microwave and Webber BBQ. We provide basics such as tea, coffee, olive oil, jams, Vegemite, peanut butter, butter, milk, bread, salt and pepper as well as homemade chutney and kasundi!

In the garage you will find bikes, beach chairs, games and sports equipment to cover all your favourite summer and beach activities. For the rainy days there is a games room inside housing all the classics - Scrabble, Connect Four, Jenga, cards etc.

Linen and towels are provided however because Merricks Beach House uses rainwater (as do most of the other properties here) we don't have washing machine facilities. Balnarring laundromat is a 5 minute drive away. There is a basin and soaking buckets supplied for hand washing and an outside clothesline. The basin is also the perfect size for bathing a little one.

Merricks Beach is family friendly and secluded. The foreshore is perfect for beach walks and when the tide is out there are endless rock-pools to explore. It is a 30 minute stroll on the beach to Point Leo or Balnarring Beach where you can grab a coffee. For the serious surfers, there are many great surf spots from Point Leo to Portsea.

As Merricks Beach is a very peaceful place, we ask you do not play loud music that may annoy neighbours outdoors after 10pm. We hope all guests can be respectful of our neighbours who live at Merricks and understand this house is not suitable for party hosting.

There are amazing wineries close by including Jackalope, Point Leo Estate, Merricks Beach General Store, Polperro and Red Hill – all between a 5 and 20 minute drive away. Some of them offer shuttle services if you’re planning on a long lunch or dinner. The Peninsula Hot Springs are a 30 minute drive and the Flinders Golf Club is a 15 minute drive away.

At Balnarring shops you will find everything you need to shop locally including IGA supermarket, organic shop, butcher, bakery, cafes, pharmacy, hairdresser, laundromat, chiropractor, doctors and numerous restaurants. Read more about our favourites in our guest book at the property.

Guest access
Guests have access to the whole property including the garage to store your surf boards, bikes etc.

Merricks Beach, Victoria, Australia

The walk to the beach is simply turn left at the gate and you are there in a few minutes. No crossing roads and all roads are dirt with a 25-KPH speed limit. Kids can get there on their own without you. All of Merricks beach is dirt roads and you will find very little traffic with most opting to walk or ride a bike.

My wife and I have been holidaying at Merricks Beach for over 40 years, pretty much every school holidays with our three children. With all the kids being adults now, we travel more overseas but still spend as much time at Merricks Beach as possible. Over summer I often commute to town for work which is only an hours drive. Our beach house is next door to our Airbnb property ‘5 Foam St Merricks Beach’ .. ‘Merricks Beach House’. Merricks has been a place to easily gain life long friendships and a place where students, retired grandparents and mums and dads all get along and chat openly in the street and on the beach. Don't feel you are imposing if you are asked back for a drink after the beach.. its pretty much an open door policy with most families. The yacht club is the same with drinks night Tuesdays and Thursdays over summer, only Thursday outside the summer holidays... another great place to meet the locals who will be happy to bend your ear. My wife Angela is the creative one, she set up the 'Merricks Beach House' and is the best cook/entertainer you'll meet and has even designed and built a wood fired pizza oven in our garden, which we are always more than happy to fire up for the neighbours which the kids love. I am just the unpaid help and my passion beside sailing is more around things motorised. I consult to the carsales network and motor industry and you are likely to see some flash cars and motorcycles (all quiet) next door. We have had great experiences with Airbnb across Europe and in Australia, as have all our children who have all travelled extensively overseas. If you just wish to kick back and relax, while having access to numerous restaurants and wineries etc you won't find a more convenient location than this extremely child friendly area and beach... If you need to dart up to the office, it's only an hours drive to the tunnel over school holiday periods, allow and extra 15 mins outside holidays.
