The secluded beach house has a large wrap-around deck facilitating outdoor living year round. Sit out in the shade in summer or in the sun in winter in any one of the private deck areas. Large bi-fold doors open up on a warm day to let the outside in to the main living area. There is also a door leading off the master bedroom to the deck and sandy bushland outside.
Cross-ventilating windows, doors and bi-folds will allow the coastal breeze to move through the house. Whilst the house is not air conditioned, there are remote controlled tower fans in each room. This is not just a summer house, with a beautiful wood fire to warm yourself by, even the wettest and coldest winter day will feel cosy and relaxed as you sit in the light-flooded house overlooking the bush.

Second time visitor
We have now stayed twice - once last September and then again last weekend. Fortunately, our second impressions were just as favourable as our first. Modern but comfortable, simply furnished but with everything you could possibly need....and importantly clean and well-maintained. At this time of year, our favourite amenity was definitely the wood heater, which added both heat and ambience; and the floor to ceiling glass facing the deck which enabled us to soak up the feeble July sun. Other than venturing out for a 'dine and bathe' package at the hot springs (which is literally 5 minutes away) we spent the entire weekend relaxing in our 21st century 'cave'. We will be back....don't hesitate to make it your base on the peninsula!

Fabulously designed and maintained property
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Coastal Bush Retreat. The house has wonderful architecture to make optimal use of the space available and the interior has been styled perfectly. The woodfire provides a lovely feel to the property and warms all of the rooms with ease. The only minor negatives are having to take your own linen and $500 cash bond. (which seems excessive considering this is not even required at 5 star hotels). Overall a very stylish and well looked after property with good communication from the owners. Would definately book again.

Lovely place to stay.
We had a lovely 2 nights here with 2 children. The house was clean, comfortable, modern and had everything we needed away from home. A lovely private cosy retreat in winter with the wood heater, and I would love to return in the warmer months to make use of the outdoor areas. Booking and arrangements were hassle free and bond returned promptly. Looking forward to a return visit.

Best holiday house!
This is a unique holiday house that is beautifully kept and a joy to be in. The owners are terrific to deal with too (thanks). We loved visiting Point Nepean and then scoffing 'world's best' Vanilla Slice in Sorrento. Peninsula Hot Springs is magic too.

We have stayed in the property twice, once for my birthday and once with friends over the Easter weekend. Both times we absolutely loved our stay. The house is perfect for two couples or as a romantic getaway, it has everything you could possibly need and the large terrace is the perfect spot for your morning breakfast. It's just peaceful and relaxing and close to some great wineries and stunning beaches. This has become our new home away from home - an hour from Melbourne - and we fully plan on returning in the coming months. Thank you so much Emma looking forward to coming back.
