About our home

'Serenity' is a charming white weatherboard beach-house in a very quiet street in Blairgowrie on the Mornington Peninsula, about 75 minutes drive from Melbourne. Serenity is only 10 minutes walk from the wonderful Koonya Ocean Beach and 8 minutes walk from the calm water beaches or Port Phillip Bay.

The house is painted white throughout and provides a very calm and relaxing atmosphere. It has beach inspired, 'shabby chic'decor and includes three bedrooms, lounge room, dining area, kitchen and bathroom. Two bedrooms are delightful with large corner windows allowing light and breezes to flow through. Both bedrooms have very comfortable king size beds.

The third bedroom - in the retreat at the back of the house - is large and has a large bathroom, walk in robe and both the bedroom and the bathroom open out through sliding doors onto a large West facing deck that provides beautiful afternoon sun during much of the year.

The lounge has a gas fire, large windows overlooking the gardens, Smart TV etc. There is an open dining area with a large retro laminex table seating six people comfortably. The newly renovated kitchen has a dishwasher, full fridge freezer and microwave. The bathroom has a shower and separate toilet.

There is a large laundry (with washing machine and dryer).

There is 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 two beds in total, comprising:
Bedroom 1 - King size bed
Bedroom 2 - King size bed
Bedroom 3 - King size bed

Please note
- we have a preference for non-simultaneous exchanges as we find that this works best. It also means that we can meet our guests and share information about our favourite 'things to do'.

Where is it?


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 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.
