Comfortable and spacious house with character and ocean views. 3 mins drive from the beach and Mt Martha village. 10 mins from trendy Mornington. Perfectly located for the famous peninsula wineries (30 mins) and golf courses (45 mins). Note attractive weekly pricing in the off-season.
This house is a truly tranquil space. Few things will make you forget about your day job like watching the sun set over the ocean every evening after a day at the beach or on the golf course. Preferably with a glass of wine bought from the cellar door at one of the many nearby wineries (whites and pinots are the best).
The house has plenty of character as it is still in regular use by a family that loves it. As a result, it is not as soullessly modern as some other properties might be. Some of the appliances are a little (sometimes hilariously) old, but they are also generally made in Germany so they work perfectly.
The owners have a German background, and the upstairs dining area is modeled on a traditional Bavarian 'sitz-ecke' (translates as 'seating corner'), optimised for maximum cosyness. If you look closely you will also spot other features that will make you think of the Sound of Music.
The kitchen has everything you would need (including a nespresso machine), and comes with a great view of the very ocean from which the fish you might be cooking may have come.
The downstairs living area has big comfortable couches and an old-style bar where you can pretend to be in a posh London gentleman's club.
Potential venues for lazing around are varied. You can sit in the dining or lounge areas upstairs, in the lounge downstairs, or outside on the verandah. In the event of a dispute in your group, it is quite possible for you to spend your holiday completely separately.
Bedrooms are all a good size, and beds are very comfortable. Restful sleeps are guaranteed (although not under AirBnB's insurance - or by any other formal means).
The whole house is yours to enjoy with the small exception of a few cupboards and closets (which will be either clearly marked or locked).

Unfortunately we live in Sydney, so so alas this is not one of those all consuming hosting experiences where Antonio meets you at the house with a home cured chorizo and a flamenco guitar. Entertainment is not included.
On the plus side, some people quite like being left alone.
This is a family holiday house, so please treat it the way that you would your own home.
There are a few cupboards/closets that are off limits - these will be clearly marked. Otherwise, the general rule is, if you didn't bring it please don't drink it (although any beer left in the fridge is fair game).
Also obviously please don't smoke in the house, and make sure any cigarette butts end up in the bin.
