Things to do

Cape Schanck's stunning coastline provides attractions for all types of visitors, whether you choose to visit one of the 62 wineries in the area, play a game of cliff-top golf (10 mins walk), take a walk along the boardwalk or up to the lighthouse with spectacular coastline views, or snorkel amongst the wonderful marine life in the rock pools.

Drive along our coastlines and cruise our quiet country roads, and the Peninsula's love affair with wine, fresh produce and bountiful food on the table quickly becomes obvious.

The Peninsula's landscapes are reminiscent of the Mediterranean too, with silvery olive groves, rolling hills laced with vineyards, waterfront cafes and restaurants, roadside signs for strawberries or free range eggs and lively local markets where growers bring just-picked and just-made produce.

Our gentle maritime climate puts a very individual stamp on Mornington Peninsula wines, as do the micro-climates which result in quite different wine styles from the same grapes grown at neighbouring vineyards.

Included in your stay:

Everyday amenities such as shower gel, handwash, paper towels etc. Fully functioning kitchen with tableware, cutlery, crockery, pots & pans, glasses and platters to accommodate 6 adults (or up to 8 people with children).

Complimentary clean for stays greater than 1 week.

Features: Open fire, TV/DVD, Stereo, Broadband, BBQ, Herb Garden - feel free to help out in the herb garden if you've a green thumb!

We also feature an extensive DVD, CD and games library.

Please note: minimum 3 night stay required during weekdays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Winter Retreat in Lush Surroundings We spent a winter weekend cosied up in this gem of a house. Well equipped with a central log fire and bedrooms with portable oil heaters and electric blankets we barely noticed the chilly weather outside. It was absolutely majestic waking up to the lush surroundings and the sounds of the wild birds each morning, the garden is wildly beautiful. The open plan living area is spacious yet communal. The entertainment facilities were great, easy to hook up your phone/iPod to or listen to digital radio, the dvd selection is extensive! We were very tempted to stay longer - hopefully next time we will! And thanks to Anna and Paul for their assistance and communication, very easy to deal with!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cape Schanck House We had a lovely long weekend staying at the Cape Schanck house. The location is fantastic and the house is very well equipped; the open fire is great. There was only 3 of us this time but the house could easily accommodate another couple or family. The owners were very professional and extremely helpful. I would definitely stay here again in the future.
