About our home

'Serenity' is a charming white weather board beach-house in a very quiet street near the Blairgowrie/Sorrento border. The house is painted white throughout and provides a very calm and relaxing atmosphere. Following a recent extension the house is best described in two parts: original and new.

The original front part of the house has 'shabby chic'decor and includes: two bedrooms, lounge room, dining area, kitchen and bathroom. The two bedrooms are delightful with large corner windows allowing light and breezes to flow through. One has a queen size bed and the other has two king single beds.

The lounge has a gas fire, large windows overlooking the gardens, TV, DVD, and stereo. There is an open dining area with a large table seating eight people. The kitchen has a dishwasher, full fridge freezer and microwave. The bathroom has a shower and separate toilet.

The new part of the house has: two bedrooms (including an extremely large master bedroom with wall mounted TV/DVD and air conditioner), a walk in robe, a very light and spacious bathroom with bath & shower and a large laundry (with washing machine and dryer). All rooms in the new part open out through sliding doors onto a large west facing deck for glorious sunshine.

The deck area overlooks lush gardens and has a gourmet gas BBQ, a large outdoor table that seats 10 people and a large market umbrella.

This property is fully fenced and pet friendly.

There are six beds in total, comprising:
Bedroom 1 - King size bed (with king size doona)
Bedroom 2 - Queen size bed (with king size doona)
Bedroom 3 - 2 King single beds (with double size doonas)
Bedroom 4 - 2 King single beds (with double size doonas)

Sorrento/Blairgowrie is on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula a 1 hour and 15mins drive south east from the Melbourne CBD. The house is located at the narrowest part of the Peninsula and from there it is an 8 minute walk to the front bay beach (Blairgowrie) and a 12 minute walk to the back ocean beach (Koonya Beach). In terms of driving it is only a few minutes drive to the historic township of Sorrento where there is an abundance of cafes, pubs, day spas and shopping options. Portsea Village is a further 5 minute drive along the coast.

The area is surrounded by magnificent beaches, ranging from calm shallow and clear waters in the bay (for swimming, kayaking and sailing) to exquisite turquoise rockpools (perfect for snorkeling) along the ocean beaches to some of the best surf beaches in Victoria, at Portsea and Gunnamatta. Diving and fishing are popular seaside activities in the area with a number of diving and fishing charters available.

If you enjoy golf then there are numerous championship courses for your enjoyment in the area. Tennis courts are available to hire.

A visit to the Red Hill wine region will take 15-20 minutes by car. Here you can visit a myriad of wineries and taste world famous pinot noir and chardonnay wines. There are also magnificent restaurants and al fresco dining options in and around Red Hill.

From Sorrento you can take a ferry (on foot or with a car)across the bay (30 minutes) to explore the charming seaside town of Queenscliff. This also provides access to the south west coast of Victoria, including the Great Ocean Road.
