A trio of intimate retreats on the Mornington Peninsula

Property reviewed by Lexi Herbert on Wednesday, November 22, 2017

Nestled in the dunes, on the Bass Strait side of the Mornington Peninsula at St Andrews Beach, is Big Blue Backyard. This couples' retreat features three hideaways, all ensconced in leafy seclusion from each other. Each hideaway's interior is unique, designed to reflect elements of this secluded location. Expect cast iron and pewter accents in the Dune Hideaway; splashes of aqua and sea glass in the Beach break; and tin, wood and a paint-splattered floor in the Bush offering. All of the hideaways have spacious, light ensuites and come with private timber decks plus private double spa baths. Put simply, you have everything you need to instantly create a haven away from the hustle of the city.

A day lounging in your villa is a day well spent; the king bed gives you room to laze all morning long, with a plasma screen TV and DVD player to keep you entertained. Or you might choose to follow the bush track and take a walk along the deserted beach, returning to wash the sand from your toes using your hideaway's outdoor shower. For dinner, treat yourself to a ‘Deluxe Deli Grazing Platter’ or a barbecue-in-a-box from the main house's kitchen. The perfect accompaniment to any sunset is utilising your bush kitchen and having dinner on the deck. The following morning, cook up a storm from the locally sourced ingredients in your gourmet breakfast basket before heading out to explore the region.

When you want to venture beyond the charm of your hideaway, Big Blue is within a short drive of multiple restaurants and cellar doors; all gourmet locations with local wine lists and fine dining. A diversion from the norm would be a visit to the Peninsula Hot Springs, but for a more exclusive bathing experience, return to your hideaway and sip from a glass of wine as you soak in your private outdoor bathtub.
