“This was our first home swap experience and it was beyond brilliant. The home is absolutely stunning and whilst the pics on the site are great, they don't do it justice! The home itself is spacious and modern but feels warm and family friendly. The location was perfectly positioned so you can experience so much of what the area has to offer (lots of beautiful food/wine/beaches and much more) and being up so high you get stunning views of Port Phillip Bay. Communication with Hollie was so easy throughout the entire process. She also left a wonderful list of quality food/wine and other recommendations in the area which we referenced a lot during our stay. We loved: the huge garden for the kids, their home is beautifully decorated throughout with comfortable furniture, the layout of the house was perfect for us travelling with kids, generous and thoughtful provisions upon arrival, the view, the quality appliances. I have no feedback regarding improvements as it truly was wonderful. Hollie and family also took excellent care of our home and car. Visiting their family winery is a must whilst you're there. Their wines are delicious! I'd highly recommend this property. Thank you so much Hollie and family. We had the best holiday :)”

About our home
We invite you to sample our little slice of paradise!
The talented and acclaimed K+Architects designed our beautiful family home to our specifications, we moved in barely 2 years ago and truly enjoy all that our home offers, it's a pleasure to be in day and night.
Originally the property contained a humble little shack but the needs of a burgeoning young family made us attempt to build our dream home from scratch. So the shack was knocked down and replaced by a comfortable multi level abode that combines functionality with elegant aesthetic beauty. We couldn’t be happier with the result!
It has all you need and nothing you don't. The design is minimal & open plan with the spacious main lounge area flowing into the equally spacious kitchen that features high quality designer fixtures and fittings. The main wall of this area is double glazed glass. This allows you to enjoy the spectacular view from inside. Alternatively you can step outside onto the balcony that is just about perfect for an early morning coffee and croissant or a latte. Of an evening perhaps a glass of something special from one of the many wineries our region has.
The glorious view looks back to the crystal blue water of Port Phillip on your left side and straight ahead you can see the skyscrapers of Melbourne (1.5 hours drive away) and the big jets flying to and from Tullamarine Airport.
The flooring in the bedrooms, lounge and rumpus rooms is polished concrete covered with colourful rugs. The classic Aussie signature building material, Colourbond, is used to great effect and clads the home that in turn is surrounded by both a native garden and a veggie patch. Plan the timing of your visit and you are most welcome to pick the freshest produce from this patch. There is also plenty of space for the kids out in the backyard as well. A trampoline and a cubby house will keep them occupied and happy as well as plenty of grassed area.
We are a family of five with 3 healthy, happy and respectful children aged 7.5, 6 and 3.5 years old
and there is plenty of room for us. The house would also suit 2 or 3 couples, as there are 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The master bedroom contains a king bed complete with a luxurious ensuite. Other bedrooms feature 1 double, 1 king single, 1 king single and the children’s bedroom with a bunk bed, double on the bottom and single on top. A rumpus room, a games room and a 2-car garage with internal access to the house. Foxtel and Netflix support the home entertainment system.
Our neighbourhood and surrounding area has so much on offer stunning beaches both surf and bay options, fishing, mountain biking, walking tracks, hot springs, day spas, national parks and golf courses. The area is particularly famous for it's top quality producing vineyards & wineries with cellar doors that readily welcome visitors. Many great eating options abound with a cluster of high-end innovative restaurants as well as plenty of casual bistros and cafes. Indeed there is honestly something for everyone on the Mornington Peninsula. We feel very lucky to raise our family here.
We are perched high on the summit of Arthurs Seat (314 meters) with stunning views of Port Phillip Bay and Melbourne. Patrolled beaches are 5-15kms away and as we are on a peninsula it’s important to note "front" beaches are non-waves as it is an enclosed the bay and the "back" beaches are surf beaches that can have a serious swell.
We own and operate a vineyard and winery which keeps us very busy! We produce high quality Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. We love what we do and the community that we live in. If you are at all interested in visiting this part of the world we can certainly assist in making your time here a trip you will never forget!
***April 2017 we will be constructing a pool so swaps may not be viable

“Hollie, a very warm thank you to you and your family for allowing us to stay in your well-appointed and charming home overlooking magnificent Port Phillip Bay. You exceeded our expectations with pages of wonderful suggestions of things for us to do. It was a perfect base to explore all that the Mornington Peninsula has to offer. It is close to an abundance of great wineries and restaurants, beautiful beaches, art galleries, nature walks, golf courses and the list goes on. There was also so much for the kids to do. They loved the enchanted adventure maze garden, strawberry picking, horse riding through the winery and the hot springs. Thank you for the wine and freshly picked berries and roses that greeted us on our arrival and for taking such great care of our home! Jen & Richard”
