Poulton Cottage is a sweet and simple cottage next to Mt Martha South Beach, an easy 1 hour drive on East Link and Peninsula Link from the Melbourne CBD. It is a low maintenance, child friendly, simple and relaxing place to stay. If you are after the Taj Mahal, you're in the wrong place, but if you want an old-fashioned, family house where you don't need to hassle the kids about wiping their feet, this is it. It is in no way new and could do with a paint, but it is our much loved holiday house and is in a seriously brilliant location. The bathroom is brand new. If you look at the photos you'll see the floor looks pretty terrible - but not any more It's all been sanded and polished and looks brilliant.

Pets are welcome, and there is a big garden for them to play in The house is securely fenced but escape artists or high-jumpers might be able to make their way out over the fence. We have done our best to make it safely enclosed but we can offer no guarantees that your pooch might not make it out.

There are 3 bedrooms inside the house one with a double bed, one with two singles and one with a bunk and one single and then an outside bungalow which adjoins the house, which sleeps 5 two bunks and a single bed. The bungalow is great for kids - perhaps not so good for adults : There is also a portacot and high chair available. This house is perfect for 2 families with a bunch of kids; ideally no more than 6 adults and no buck's nights :

The bathroom is new and has a walk-in shower and easy care flooring can't see that sand. There's also a second bathroom which doubles as the laundry outside - it's not at all luxurious but the shower works and the toilet is clean, We make that the boys' bathroom...

The family who owns this house uses it regularly and you are welcome to use whatever you might find such as coffee, tea, sauces etc in the cupboards and use all the games, books and DVDs as well. Please note that there are some of our own items that remain in this house. You'll need to bring your own linen, or I can organise some for you at a cost of $15 per person for 2 sheets per bed, bath towel, beach towel, tea towel, bathmat and pillowcases, which I pay direct to the cleaner who launders it. But you'll need to make your own bed

There is a very large back yard, an outside shower, and a playground around the corner about 50-100m away. The shopping centre is also about 100m away with an excellent supermarket and take-away restaurants including fish and chips, pizza, Indian food and an ice-cream shop. If the need should arise, there is both a Doctor's surgery and a Vet around the corner, around 50m away.

There is also a fantastic board-walk about 5 minutes walk away where you can burn off a few calories while your dog meet lots of other woofy friends. The beach is around 150m away and is safe and sheltered. As it's a bay beach there are few waves and it is ideal for little people to build sandcastles and get their toes wet. There is kayak rental on the beach to add to the fun For tennis players, there is court hire for $6 an hour about 400m away at the Mt Martha Tennis Club.

If you enjoy visiting wineries Redhill is less than 15 minutes away, and the Peninsula Hot Springs is around 25 minutes away. The Briars Homestead 230 hectares of flora and fauna as well as an astronomy centre and beautiful walks is at the end of our road, a bit too far to walk but a couple of minutes drive.

Check in is at 1pm, and check out at 10am. We can give you early check in or late check out depending on other bookings.

Please note there is a mandatory cleaning charge of $80.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from lovely cottage by the beach Our group of 6 adults had a wonderful retreat weekend here. The beach is literally 3 minutes walk away and the local shops are great with cafes and great places to eat as well as a yummy ice cream place - great on a hot day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Family holiday Such a great place to stay with a family, plenty of space in the yard and a short stroll to the beach and nearby shops. The house is comfortable and had everything we needed, highly recommend a stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cosy, comfortable and veryclose to beach and shops This cosy cottage was everything we wanted it to be for a relaxing stay at Mt Martha! The cottage is an easy walking distance to the beautiful beach and almost right next to the shops, including cafes offering great coffee and food. Except for the modern bathroom the cottage is old and full of charm, yet very comfortable. On hot summer days the recently installed ceiling fans kept us sufficiently cool. The lovely large garden is great for kids of all ages and for dogs. We enjoyed the sound of all the native birds who live there. The only thing we missed was Wi-Fi, but that probably says more about us than about the Mt Martha Family Friendly Cottage....
