Why stay with us

McCrae sits between Dromana and Rosebud and is said by many locals to have the best beach on the Mornington Peninsula.

With bathing boxes at the top of the white sandy beach, a relaxed atmosphere and calm, clear waters it is a picturesque and safe place to swim or play in the shallow waters. Warmer waters at Peninsula Hot Springs are only a short drive away.

If you want something more energetic we have two bikes available for you to use for free, with helmets and locks also provided. You can join the Bay Trail that passes in front the apartment and cycle toward either Sorrento or Dromana. There are also facilities nearby to hire kayaks, boats and other water sports equipment.

It is a short walk from the apartment to McCrae village for trendy cafes, restaurants and bars like The Lighthouse Cafe, McCrae Pavilion, Blue Bay Cafe, Match Maker, McCrae General Pizzeria and McCrae Provedore - there is no need to drive when dining out A Coles supermarket, bakery, chemist and boutique shops are also nearby.

Our apartment is the ideal base for exploring the Mornington Peninsula, with great tourist attractions within walking distance including:

McCrae Lighthouse and Yacht Club 5 min walk

McCrae Homestead 10 min walk - Victoria's oldest, original existing house

Heronswood 5 min drive or 30 min walk - historic house and gardens

Dromana 3 Drive-in 7 min drive - one of the last drive-ins in Victoria

Arthurs Seat 10 min drive or 1 hr walk - a 305 m / 1,001 ft high with magnificent views of Port Phillip Bay

The Enchanted Maze Garden 10 min drive or 1 hr walk - adventure park with three hedge mazes, two giant tube slides and much more

You will also have easy access to other popular sites like:

Peninsula Hot Springs 15 min drive

Red Hill Market 15 min drive

Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery 15 min drive

Mornington Peninsula National Park 20 min drive

Point Nepean and Fort Nepean 30 min drive - historical military ruins and bushland

HMAS Cerberus 30 min drive - military base, historical buildings, museum and submarine

Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park 30 min drive - native nocturnal animal walks held nightly

There are also the many wineries, golf courses, galleries and markets that the Mornington Peninsula is becoming known for nearly as much as swimming and surf beaches.

How to get here

It is only one hour drive from Melbourne to have a secluded, safe swimming beach on your doorstep, making it perfect for a weekend away or a longer stay.

Get off the Mornington Peninsula Freeway at the McCrae exit, follow Lonsdale Street to Point Nepean Road, turn right at the lights and drive 200m to the apartment.

If using public transport you can get the 788 bus from Frankston train station heading toward Portsea, with the bus stopping metres away from the apartment.

If coming on the Queenscliff / Sorrento ferry it is a 20 min drive along the coast to the apartment.

We look forward to welcoming you at McCrae Beach Apartment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home away from home. That's all i can say. My family and I were very happy to stay in this wonderful, clean, cosy apartment. It had everything we needed, even the little things like body wash. The owners we're very helpful in guiding us to the local attractions. Also the beach was across the road, which was a bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly enjoyable stay! I stayed at the McCrae Beach Apartment over 2 weekends in June and had a thoroughly wonderful time - I returned for a second weekend as I enjoyed it so much. The apartment and provided facilities are first class in this modern apartment. The location to shops, cafes, restaurants and the beach are a real plus. Fabulous hosts - highly recommend :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully maintained - modern and well appointed With a well-appointed kitchenette, a couch you can melt into, great separation of bedrooms for peace and quiet (kids' bedroom is the furthest from the lounge) and proximity to shops and the beach, this is one of the best stays away from home we've had in Victoria. Thanks to Colin and Wendy for friendly communication and tips for local eateries.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenience of everything! This property is very well appointed and beautifully decorated. The thing that we loved the most was the close proximity to the grocery store, the cafe's and eateries and of course the pristine waters of Mcrae beach, literally across the road. We especially loved being able to set up on the beach for the day but be able to come and go throughout the day without the laborious packing and unpacking of beach paraphernalia involved when you have to drive to your favorite beach destination. The hosts were also very accomodating and welcoming. We will definitely be back.
