About Nicholas Grigg
Purchased as an original 1950s beach shack, we worked hard over several years to renovate and restore Whitelodge to become a cosy, nostalgic beach house providing families with unforgettable holidays at the beach. Nic owns and runs a successful Hydronic Heating company and has a passion for renovating, restoring old junk into contemporary treasure and entertaining friends and family. Inviting others to share our property allows us to enjoy the house ourselves and provides future lifestyle retirement options. Nic also recently built a property in Sassafras, Dandenong Ranges,” Whitelodge Mountain Retreat.” We hope that guest respect the love and passion we have put into the house and sincerely hope our guests enjoy the house and location as much as we do.
Nicholas Grigg purchased this House in 2015

Excellent beach house
Fantastic little beach house. Our family had a great time over Australia long weekend
Excellent location, beautiful home!
We had the best weekend away with our friends. Location was perfect, the house was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. Wonderful hosts whose communication throughout our booking has been much appreciated for an easy stay. Thanks again, Hannah
Thank you Hannah, please come again, we wish they were all like you ! Happy Xmas
Excellent Beach Property
We loved staying at the White Lodge the property was well maintained, very clean, with a great kitchen and BBQ area and garden. It's proximity to the beach was brilliant.
The whole vibe of the place is very relaxed making for a great holiday.
Thank you Neil for leaving our house very clean and tidy, so glad you enjoyed your stay. You are welcome back any time
This is a lovely place to stay
White Lodge has lots of character- some old world charm and some modern cool. It was comfortable, private and quiet. A pleasant stroll down a relaxed seaside street to the beach and the Frankston shops, cafes and restaurants. The owners, while discreet, responded quickly to our communications and were obviously committed to making our stay as pleasant as possible.
Many thanks Ken, you and your family treated our house with the utmost respect and left it very clean and tidy which was much appreciated. Come again.
Beautiful house, great location and the owners at such short notice went above and beyond to accommodate us.
Thank you so much for letting us use your beautiful home Robynne and Nic and for putting Foxtel sports on for us.
Thankyou too Tracy for this great review, we heard the plea for "rugby" loud and clear! Glad you enjoyed yourselves, you left our house immaculate and you and your family are welcome back any time, We wish they were all like you.
stylish and comfortable
we stayed 4 nights in this wonderful house. impeccably clean, well equipped (kitchen with all the machines and sharp knives!), stylish, even a bit luxurious and very comfortable. fantastic swimming beach within reach of bare feet and many touring opportunities in the neighbourhood. communication with hosts was fluent & flexible, we will definately return.
Sini and Anniti....(spelling???) thank you for your wonderful review, you are obviously keen foodies, and so are we. Your comments in our visitors book mentioned our herb garden /sharp knives etc and it's great to know that people appreciate these kitchen/cooking facilities. Also hosting you all the way from from Finland was exciting for us and we are delighted you "stylish" people found our beach house so comfortable. We enjoyed some communication, and you are welcome back any time. Cheers Robynne and Nic
