Read our review of Buckleys Escape...

You have little chance of wanting to make an early exit from Buckleys Escape in Sorrento. If anything, you’ll want to settle for an extended stay. Buckleys Escape has that effect on its guests. The feeling is one of being truly hidden away, even though you’re close to some of the Mornington Peninsula’s most coveted holiday destinations.

Before you get ahead of yourself traipsing around the Peninsula, take time to get to know your lodgings. Start by inspecting the open-plan lounge, dining and kitchen. With its floating wood floors, crisp white walls, rattan chairs and Hamptons-like styling, this space is beachy and fresh. It’s a bit like that person at school that was cool without even trying.

Next up, poke your head inside the three bedrooms – making a mental note to buy your own linens in similar prints – before wandering outside again to stretch out in one of the white sunloungers. You’ll stay here until you need to reapply SPF 30+ or fire up the barbecue for dinner.

True to its name, this Sorrento hideaway feels like an escape from the moment you step foot (or wheel) past the gated entrance. A landscaped garden is freshly bedded with native plants and a fire pit beckons for group gatherings that carry on from afternoon into the late evening. Beyond the property’s borders, Koonya Beach is a leisurely stroll away and Sorrento’s central hub of shops and cafés is close too.
