The house is on the Balnarring Merricks "million dollar" hill.

Balnarring Beach is between Somers and Flinders and abuts Red Hill and Merricks. It is 5 minutes drive from dozens of wineries, great surf and excellent fishing spots. Even on the busiest of weekends, Balnarring Beach is still a quiet haven. Lovely beach walks – 45 minutes to breakfast at Somers General Store or the same distance in the other direction to Point Leo General Store. Balnarring, Merricks and Somers all have yacht clubs and encourage casual memberships. The Balnarring shopping centre has a great IGA supermarket and bottle shop as well as all basic shopping needs.

The House

Palmers Hill is a rambling, rustic gem of a house. Once the original Balnarring Beach homestead, it is now comfortable and modern while retaining it's period charm.

It has hydronic heating in all rooms, airconditioning in the upstairs area and fans in the lower rooms. There are large fire places in the lounge and dining rooms, with a gas heater in the "play room". The kitchen is large farm style but with granite benchtops and the latest appliances. It is well set up for cooks, with a Kitchenaid mixer, Magimix, pizza ovens and enough crockery and glassware to cater for a small army. A Nespresso coffee machine ensures you don't need to leave the house if you don't want to!

Three living areas in the house and many outdoor seating options mean that even with 20 people, there are still quiet places to relax.

There are 3 sleeping wings in the house and it is ideally suited for several families to share and still have the privacy of their own bathroom. Seven bedrooms comprise 4 double or queen rooms and 3 rooms of bunks and singles beds.

The swimming pool is fenced, heated and 1.8m to 1m in depth. Alongside the pool is a large grass strip perfect for cricket, soccer, volley ball etc. A sail shade provides shade to the pool area in summer.

Palmers Hill is the perfect location for family gatherings. It is not appropriate for parties and we do not accept bookings for weddings, parties, schoolies, etc. All guests are asked to be considerate of our neighbours and noise and music must be kept to a minimum in the evening.

Please note that we can not accommodate pets.


Balnarring Beach

The house has its own private path to the beach. The beach is very safe and ideal for young children. 300 metres around the corner, Merricks offers good surfing and Point Leo (10 min drive) is rated the safest of the top ten surf beaches in Victoria. Balnarring Beach has won the "cleanest beach" in Victoria many times. It has a combination of rocks (ideal for fish and snorkeling) and safe swimming. Western Port Bay is a large tidal bay in southern Victoria, opening into Bass Strait. It is the second largest bay in Victoria.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful house, especially for a big group With 11 adults and 2 little kids, this house was an absolute treat. Space for all, delightful features throughout the house, beautiful garden, a minute walk to the beach and just over an hour drive from Melbourne. The facilities really catered for everything. Thank you, and we look forward to visiting again soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelent We stayed with ~10 friends for a second time after spending some time there 3 years ago. The house is great, comfortable rooms, big open kitchen fully equipped and nice gardens. Everything goes according to the description and never disappoints. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical We just spent 7 days at Palmers Hill and it was a dream. The property has a magical old world charm that kept our kids entertained for hours. Lots of rooms to explore and fantastic garden both open plan for the kids to run around and special little pretty nooks for them to play games. We were a big group and the layout of the house meant we didn't feel over crowded. Amazing view of the fire works from the top balcony on New Years Eve. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful house and location, so much space Such a fantastic, warm, inviting and spacious place. We stayed at Christmas time with 4 families and never felt cramped. So many places to be social together or chill out. Loved the incredibly well appointed kitchen; ample crockery, cutlery, appliances etc. Especially loved having 2 dishwashers! We'll be back for sure.
