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.

Newly renovated, the 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 (heating) and cool in summer (ceiling fans and portable air conditioning unit), 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 is modern and new - 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 BBQ facilities, overlooking an enchanted moonah tree and ivy garden setting below, a mini deckhouse cubby house with sandpit for the kids, and stairs leading to a large elevated deck 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 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 comfortably sleeps a maximum seven adults. 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.

The Little Deckhouse is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I stayed at The Little Deckhouse with six friends between Christmas and New Years, and it was absolutely perfect! Tucked away from the crowds in Rye and Rosebud, but only a 5-10 minute walk away from beautiful St Andrews beach. The house itself is well-provisioned with everything we needed, and the large deck area and barbeque was perfect for big communal meals. The house has lots of charm, and we really appreciated all of the little touches around the house; plenty of books to read, a harddrive of movies and even a guitar. Fantastic summer getaway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We were looking for a weekend get away to take stock before a busy month. Once we arrived with our dogs we were so pleased we pick LDH as it was presented immaculately and was so peaceful and tucked away from everything, it was the perfect place to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet. The owners were easy to deal with and we had a great weekend. We can thoroughly recommend LDH for a great escape. Mark and Rebecca.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The house has everything we needed for a break from the crowd. It is like a peaceful hidden paradise, yet with all the daily needs provided by very friendly and accommodating owners. We even saw a whale on our way home at the very nearby St Andrew's beach.Thank you, Andrew and Fiona, for providing us with another lovely choice of accommodation in the busy Melbourne.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This house is really a slice of heaven! I have stayed in a few properties around the Mornington Peninsula and this would easily be the most enjoyable and relaxing weekender yet! Will definitely be going back. It comfortably housed our group of 6 and the deck and outdoor area were much larger than we thought. We could have a wine and something to eat whilst watching our children and dog play in the "Alice in Wonderland"'esque garden, complete with hanging vines and playhouse. The evening walk to St Andrews beach was closer than we thought and the sunset was well worth the 5-10 minute stroll. Deserted beach in every direction. The furnishings added a familiar and cozy atmosphere and we were left wanting nothing else! The bathrooms and kitchens were perfectly appointed for a beach house; simple yet adequate. Thanks for the stay; we love your place! C
