Enjoy a romantic break on the wonderful Mornington Peninsula.
We are being EXTREMELY thorough with our cleaning throughout this crisis & are sanitising every single surface, switch, handle, right down to the coat hangers.
Our beautiful cottage overlooking the picturesque dam is perfect for couples looking for time out to enjoy each others company.
Explore the beautiful Mornington Peninsula or just stay in & relax in this lovely peaceful environment.

The space
This is a beautiful cottage which has been converted from an original farm building. The cottage is charmingly rustic inside, lined with whitewashed rough planks but very spacious & tastefully furnished. There is a large bedroom with a very comfortable queen size four poster bed (made by my husband), dining area & huge living area.
There is a large split system to keep you cool in summer & warm in winter.
Enjoy the stunning views over the dam & beautiful gardens all around.
Feel the serenity!
This is the perfect retreat for couples looking for a romantic getaway. Nothing to do here except enjoy each others company!
There is a deck at the front with table & chairs overlooking the dam.
The bathroom has a bath with shower & there is a kitchenette with microwave, under bench fridge, kettle,toaster, small electric frypan & crockery etc but no cooktop.
It is not 5 star accommodation but it is very charming, comfortable & very relaxing.

Guest access
Our cottage is just for couples looking to enjoy a quiet break. We live in the main house on the property & rent it on weekends so it is not possible to have visitors while you are here. The cottage is very private & we ask that you respect the privacy of those staying in the house. Enjoy the deck & dam area close to the cottage.

Location

Tyabb, Victoria, Australia

The Mornington Peninsula is a little bit of Paradise just 55 minutes from Melbourne and we are right at the gateway to it.
It is 15 minutes to Mornington if you want to swim in the bay or 20 minutes to Point Leo if you are looking for surf. It is a 20 minute drive to the Red Hill market or to any of the wineries. The nearest golf course is the Devil Bend club just 8 minutes away and only 5 minutes to the famous Tyabb Packing shed antique centre. There are numerous places for horse riding very close by.
Come here for the peace & tranquility of the location but please note that there are no nearby shops or restaurants. We have a small local shopping centre 5 minutes away with a great fish & chip shop but apart from that, note that this is a rural location & you will have to drive at least 15 minutes to get to any cafes or restaurants.
You are really spoilt for choice with great dining choices on the Mornington Peninsula.
Some of our favourites are
Port Philip Estate for stunning views with great food & wine.
Foxeys Hangout for cellar door with beautiful small plates.
Panton in Red Hill for cellar door with tasting plates & spectacular views over the vineyards. (Casual & relaxed)
The Epicurean in Red Hill for fantastic pizza & really good coffee.
Merricks General Store for great food & coffee & atmosphere.

I have lived in Melbourne my whole life and think it is one of the greatest cities in the world as we have such fantastic restaurants, shopping and great neighbourhoods to explore. I have been a host on Airbnb since November 2013 & absolutely love it. My husband & I are semi retired & we split our time between Richmond & the Mornington Peninsula. I started out with one small apartment we owned in Richmond & enjoyed hosting so much that we bought another one. We also rent out our home & the cottage which is on that property at Tyabb on the beautiful Morn Pen. I love to travel and usually choose to stay in apartments as I find it more relaxing than staying in a hotel. My favourite city in the world is New York!

During your stay
We live on the property in a house which is separate to the cottage (about 150mtrs away), so are there if you need us, but you are in your own space & are very private.
