"Great location, right near the beach and provided the flexibility to have our well behaved dogs travel with us. Places like this are hard to find." Richard
"We were so pleased we pick LDH as it was presented immaculately and was so peaceful and tucked away from everything." Mark
"It is like a peaceful hidden paradise, yet with all the daily needs." Jo
"It comfortably housed our group of 6 and the deck..was much larger than we thought." Chris
Only a short walk from the beach, The Little Deckhouse is an elevated coastal haven in the prestigious enclave of St Andrews Beach, on the Ocean Beach side of the Mornington Peninsula.
White wooden walls and interiors give it a beachy feel and the leafy outlook - set on half an acre - is just what the doctor ordered on a getaway from the city. Start the day with the paper and a cup of tea on the sunny deck and finish it with a barbeque and a glass of wine on the outdoor setting looking out over the Moonah trees and lush ivy. New deck on the top hill of the property has stunning views and is the best place to have a morning coffee or sunset wine.
The house is warm in winter and cool in summer (new split system), with four sliding doors opening to the oversized deck. Plenty of mod cons too, with a 40" LED TV & Blu Ray/DVD player in the main room and a TV with built in DVD for the kids in the bunkroom. There is also an easy to operate hard drive connected to the smart TV with lots of current movies - 50 to date! A DVD library and a great collection of books is also provided for guest use. We also have a portacot/playpen for infants.
The upstairs bathroom and kitchen are modern - features include dishwasher and oven plus gas cooktop. Ample bench space in the kitchen makes family feasts a breeze, no matter how many cooks you have operating at once! Two bedrooms upstairs include the children's bedroom with bunk bed and trundle, as well as the main bedroom with queen size bed.
Outside you will find an expansive deck with brand new BBQ facilities, overlooking an enchanted moonah tree and ivy garden setting below, a mini deckhouse cubby house with sandpit and toys for the kids, and stairs leading to a large elevated deck set among the birds and trees, with views of Arthurs Seat and beyond - the perfect place for a morning coffee or dusk wine.
There is also a basic bathroom, laundry and bedroom with queen size bed downstairs, with separate access to the main house. Please be aware this is the older part of the house and unrenovated - definitely not 5 star but suitable for teens or young adults that don't mind more modest accommodation.
**Please note fees quoted are for the WHOLE HOUSE. Unlike many properties, the price you will not be charged per additional adult on top of the base rate. TLD sleeps a maximum seven adults but may not be the sleeping arrangements you desire - please check before booking. You will also NOT be charged extra for your dog. DOG HOUSE, TOYS AND BOWLS PROVIDED!
Please bring own linen and towels. If you can not bring your own linen, we can source this for you but it brings an additional fee of $50 per person.
Ideal for entertaining, for a cosy couples getaway or for two families/couples
The Little Deckhouse is named for its huge, elevated deck which has similar floor space to the entire house. There is a large bbq, outdoor setting and sun umbrella which makes big outdoor feasts a feature. Kids and dogs will love the size of the yard and the areas to explore. There are stunning views of St Andrews Golf Course from the hill at the back of the property.
The configuration of the house suits many holiday-goers; those wanting a romantic weekend away (to suit two one or two couples), large groups (of up to seven) or those packing up a whole family, plus mum and dad, who can retire in privacy downstairs. Upstairs there is a double bedroom, a bunk room sleeping three and a bathroom. On the ground floor there is a separate (lockable) double bedroom, featuring stained glass windows and ensuite/shower as well as a large laundry.
What makes The Little Deckhouse unique is its elevation up amongst the trees giving leafy outlooks and the total privacy of its location. The Little Deckhouse is close enough to the beach to hear the waves roaring in the distance.
