Read our review of Whitewood Cottage...

Whitewood Cottage is your own slice of the Mornington Peninsula. This three-bedroom beach cottage might boast an old-school shell, but wander inside and you’ll find modern creature comforts that make Whitewood your home away from home. The interior has had a recent facelift and now features just-painted walls, new furniture and magazine-worthy styling. Its warm and welcoming vibe hasn't been compromised though.

The lounge and kitchen area is the main hub of the home and will be your to-go for group meals, afternoons spent around the fire or family movie nights. Don’t think you’ll spend your time at Whitewood Cottage cooped up inside though, because it is the home’s outdoor space where this stay really comes into its own. Put simply, there are so many outdoor areas you might have to flip a coin to decide which to enjoy first. The garden is private and peaceful, and has been landscaped with indigenous plants. A fire pit sits in the middle of the garden and is an excellent focal point for entertaining, especially during the cooler months. Then you have an undercover dining space, a barbecue area and separate side deck. The cherry on top of Whitewood’s al fresco offerings is the spa, which sits in a secluded, sun-blessed spot and is flanked by Cape Cod-style chair and sunloungers. If it sounds like Whitewood Cottage’s outdoor space is made for your four-legged friends to enjoy too, you’d be right - dogs are more than welcome.

When you feel inclined to (temporarily) leave the cottage, you won’t have to venture far. It’s an easy stroll from the house to the Peninsula Coastal Walk, which runs from St Andrews Beach to Sorrento.
