A beautiful 1940's original Beach house with beautiful Views of the bay
About Jo-Anne Hare
Jo-Anne and their family purchased the perfect beach house because of its warm character and location. We have had many wonderful years of family holidays and new memories created because of this home. We have lovingly restored and kept the character to share with others. It's beautiful all year providing a haven for weary travelers or those looking to explore the peninsula. We are in a perfect position for any of the other points of interest. Close to the freeways, perfectly positioned for the beach and restaurants. Our amazing Coonara is just heavenly in winter.As I've said it is "the Perfect Beach House"
Jo-Anne Hare purchased this House in 2006

Jo-Anne was very easy to deal with and the house was immaculate. I loved all the small details that she had thought of. The fireplace was so cosy and we all had a great time. Thanks for having us. We’ll be back again in the future.

Thank you for your kind comments Manisha.The balcony is particularly good for the beautiful sunsets we get.
Perhaps we will see you again in Summer.
My family and I had a lovely stay at the McCrae beach apartment! If only I could call it my own!!! We enjoyed a few wines on the deck soaking up the beautiful autumn evening whilst enjoying the sunset over the ocean views (an absolute treat to see this from the deck). A very short walk to the beach with plenty to do in and around the area. Thanks again!!!
Lovely, clean, well-equipped, muli-level beach house
Our family enjoyed a brief stay in this delightful house. We appreciated the comfortable beds and generous supply of linen. The master bedroom has a great ensuite with spa bath. The kitchen is clean and well-equipped and leads out to the lovely living and dining area and deck. We enjoyed watching the sun set over the water whilst sitting on the deck (could see glimpses of the water). At night we loved lighting the fire and watching a DVD from the substantial house collection. It was an excellent place to stay in, and also convenient location for attractions and restaurants. Thank you to the host for her hospitality.
This place is nothing short of incredible, the serenity, the natural beauty, proximity to the beach, tastefully furnished, self-contained apartment with a sea view. It was well equiped with every utensil you could need, the little treasures to admire & books, magazines & games to enjoy make you want to stay for a week! Spa was lovely as were complimentary toiletries. Last but certainly not least the fine touches displayed on every corner of the premises were absolutely beautiful. We were hoping to go out in the evening, however, ended up staying there all throughout as it was too hard to leave. Jo is extremely helpful addressing all our needs from the time of booking. We loved the place to the bits and enjoyed the relaxing getaway there. The stay can't be described. It needs to be experienced.
The 2 Local McCrae restaurants
"The lighthouse Cafe" which is the best Thai on the peninsula.
Always book as they are busy all year round
An Italian restaurant which is casual , has vegetarian options is good for kids groups and families.
If your up for a walk check out Millionaires Walk in Sorrento to get a peak of how the rich and famous face the beautiful sea .
Its a hidden gateway down Lentill lane in Sorrento , You can meander along the trail and see the beautiful houses as well as the ferry going back and forth to Queenscliff.
There is a Market on the peninsula every weekend so just google to see whats on when your down
