Float away on the Mornington Peninsula

The Mornington Peninsula is synonymous with good food, renowned wineries, verdant countryside and stunning hilltop and water views. If you want to combine these essential elements on your next escape a stay at Max’s Retreat at Red Hill Estate is the perfect place. 

This cute two-bedroom cottage was originally the vineyard manager’s house and has been renovated to provide the best of country living, with views from the lounge and deck stretching across the vines to Westernport Bay and Phillip Island beyond. Of course, it’s only a short stroll to the award-winning Max’s Restaurant, the Red Hill Estate cellar door, produce store and gallery. 

For a completely different experience, the other option is to stay at the four-bedroom Max’s Retreat in the heart of Red Hill. Think private country house with walled gardens and even your own kitchen garden for foraging. Inside, the décor is eclectically inviting and perfect for group getaways of up to eight. Another luxury is that Max (the chef) is available for private in-house dinner parties at the Retreat. BYO friends and this will be one dinner you will remember. 

And if you really want to experience the Peninsula’s hidden secrets, book one of Max’s behind the scenes tours where you can enjoy experiences at local farm gates, artisan producers, winery restaurants and more.

Having just returned from a fantastic stay at Max's Retreat, I am posting this review. There were 8 of us all together and this was the perfect venue for us to meet for a catch up, share wine, laughter and relax. The accommodation was simply brilliant.
The extra little inclusions made our stay comfortable and memorable - the well equiped pantry, fruitbowl, bread, milk, beautiful L'occitane soaps and shampoos, the warmth from the fireplace and the welcoming hospitality of both Marcus and Max. I recommend taking up the offer of the in-house private chef - both the restaurant quality food and service made this a lovely experience. We will stay there again and am happy to recommend Max's Retreat at Red Hill to others.
