Akron Beach House is a relaxed, pet-friendly 4 bedroom, 2 living room, 2 bathroom house in Somers on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria.

The house is located just 550 metres (approx a 7 minute walk) from the best swimming beach in Somers, the yacht club and the Somers General Store / Cafe. Akron Beach House is positioned in the best part of Somers: the original estate amid a beautiful natural bush setting, just minutes from the leash-free dog park, oval, tennis club and children's playground.

The house has a large fenced backyard with plenty of lawn for the kids to play games on, as well as a swing-set, slide and small sand-pit. There is a gorgeous deck with a table setting for 8, a brand new gas BBQ and an outdoor sink and bench top. Local koalas have even been known to make themselves at home in the trees!

The house has an open plan kitchen and living area that opens up to a large deck and back yard. A second lounge room with a large open fireplace adjoins this area, and then 4 bedrooms lead off a hallway with the main bathroom tucked up at the end. The house is newly carpeted throughout the bedrooms and lounge room.

Inside there are 4 bedrooms that sleep 8 people, configured as follows:

Bed 1: 1 x queen bed

Bed 2: 1 x queen bed

Bed 3: 2 x single beds (one is a trundle and can be raised to same height as single to create a double bed if desired)

Bed 4: 1 x bunk bed (sleeps 2)

Each bedroom has a set of drawers and either a wardrobe or clothes rack.

There is a gorgeous open fireplace for use in the winter, with wood supplied. All rooms also have heaters, as well as ceiling fans or portable fans. There is also a portable cooling unit. for use in the summer.

The 2 generous living spaces are each set up with comfortable couches. Each living area has a flat-screen TV with DVD player and USB ports. There is also a portable CD player and iPod docking station with speakers. A selection of board games and CDs are available to use.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything that you could need to cook or prepare food for a large family, including 2 fridges, oven and grill, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, sandwich toaster, all crockery, cutlery, pots/pans, utensils, kettle, coffee plunger etc. There is a large dining table that seats 8 people plus a high chair.

The main bathroom has a shower over bath and a separate toilet. There are some bath toys for kids to play with.

There is a laundry with a washing machine and dryer, and a hills hoist in the yard. There is a second toilet and shower off the laundry, which is very practical for rinsing off after a trip to the beach.

The house is well set up for a family or group, and there is a small selection of children's toys, books, DVDs and outside play equipment for young children.

We provide doonas, blankets and pillows for each bed, but you need to bring your own linen (including doona covers) and towels. With advance notice it may be possible for us to supply linen for an additional fee.

Perfect Getaway

Somers is the perfect spot for a beach holiday. Just 1 hour from Melbourne, it boasts one of the best bay beaches on the Mornington Peninsula. If you are lucky, you may even get to swim with the family of dolphins that regularly visit!

The recently renovated Somers General Store makes great coffee and breakfast, and Balnarring Village is just 5 minutes up the road for all your shopping needs. The Peninsula's award winning restaurants and wineries are only a short drive away.

There are many things to see and do on the Mornington Peninsula. Enjoy a spa at the Peninsula Hot Springs, pick berries at Main Ridge, see native animals at the Moonlit Sanctuary, go kite-surfing at Point Leo beach - the opportunities are endless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great holiday house We had a few mid winter nights at Akron and really enjoyed our stay. The property is on a large block with spacious garden. Inside there are two living areas for the grown-ups to have some kid-free time. Movies, board games etc to keep everyone entertained. Really, there is nothing the property lacked and we hope to stay there again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a cosy house and surroundings We went 2 little families together, with 2 little boys (1.5 & 2 years old). And it was a GREAT setup for them! There was everything you could wish for travelling with a toddler! Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect stay! The house had everything we needed and was extremely comfortable. The fencing was totally secure for our small dog and she loved the yard, with heaps of room to play fetch. We all loved the deck and the owner went out of his way to provide assistance and was very accommodating.

It's a great house with a big backyard, spacious, clean,quiet, well organised and equipped for a family. Short walk to great somers beach. We will definitely return at some stage. Owners were super easy to deal with.
