A Dufflebird Property.

Discover the Magic of Merricks Beach. Stay & Enjoy the Relaxed Beachside Lifestyle.

It's only natural that you'll love this unique coastal location with the beautiful swimming beach, yacht club and coastal trails within a short walk, plus the fabulous northerly aspect and tranquil garden setting amongst the gum trees.

In winter, go for a beach walk then curl up in front of either the two open fire places. Cook up a banquet and gather around the feasting table, while the kids have a ping-pong tournament.

This spacious 3 bedroom home is ideal for families and couples. Two living areas allow kids can have their own space. It has an ideal casual dining / family room to the rear that enjoys the garden views and has a rustic decor that's finished in mud brick walls, recycled timber feature beams and red brick floors. Large window panels and French doors bring in an abundance of natural light and garden views.

Come through the breezeway to a separate wing with an open plan kitchen / meals and lounge with polished floors or out through big French doors to the paved terrace that provide a perfect protected spot for meals and entertaining on the lawns. Splashes of colour from wild flowers and the native plantings are enhanced by the back drop of gum trees and semi-rural acres to the rear.

Low maintenance and definitely unassuming from the street front, this wonderful beach house will be the home of many happy memories of time away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

1 queen bed, 2 singles and four single beds in two bunks

Guest Feedback

" Very clean, well laid out and great location"

" I wish it was mine . It has everything I dream off in a holiday house. I love that it is less than an hour from inner Melbourne and it somehow still feels undiscovered and untouched. The unsealed roads remind me of beach holidays in child hood. Despite my nostalgia, my foodie wife has The Merricks General Store and Red Hill General Store up the road. Not to mention the Epicurean and Montalto Winery". We will be back ".

" Cant think of any negatives, everything functions well. Loved the luxurious shower head, open fire and homely feel"

" I liked the rustic features but the fact that it is clean, well sealed and cozy. The open fires were a hit for me and I spent most of the weekend curled up on that huge comfy couch with a book I could not put down a rare treat in itself. I could watch the kids outside in the garden from those gorgeous big windows. We live inner city with not much of a yard, so it was fantastic to see the kids entertain themselves in the kids friendly garden. The Springfree trampoline was a hit too".

"Great kid friendly garden and well stocked toys. The Wii is a great touch"

" I liked the proximity to Melbourne, the region and great food and wineries. The actual beach is really lovely. Your house feels really loved and welcoming. I felt like I was staying at a good friends house. We go away a lot, but our kids 4, 9, 11 and 14 have voted this the best house ever and are asking to go back "

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful house Chose 'A Joy' and it lived up to its name. The area is a hidden gem. House was lovely, tastefully decorated and yet very practical. The table tennis table was well used and so nice to stay in a dog friendly house. House is well kitted out and has everything you need for a relaxing holiday

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, serene & beachy! I was so happy to have booked this lovely house for a group of seven, including three friends over from Scotland. It was wonderfully spacious and a great size for all of us. We loved the interior décor - beautiful rugs, dining table, fireplaces and the lovely, large gardens. The location was absolutely perfect for a quiet getaway. It was heaven being so close to the beach and close to walking tracks. The area was quiet, peaceful and serene. We absolutely LOVED this place, great value for money, and definitely plan to go back!
