Tussie Mussie

16 guests · 7 bedrooms · 6 bathrooms
Sunshine chases the mist from vineyards, ponds, and gently rolling hills at this rural haven in the Australian countryside outside Melbourne. Accommodations are spread out between a lodge, a cottage, and the playfully named Old Laundry, all with soft Provençal colors. It’s a short drive to a selection of golf courses, beaches, and wine tastings in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula wine region.
The property’s grounds tempt guests outdoors with sculpture and cottage gardens, a tennis court, a 7-acre vineyard, and a vegetable garden teeming with fresh herbs and produce. Walk past the vineyard to spot wallabies in the bush beyond, and fire up the pizza oven and barbecue for lunch and dinner at the alfresco table. The outdoor areas allow groups up to 14 people to gather in one place.
Soft tones, natural textures, and bistro-inspired furnishings bring a little bit of France to the interiors of the lodge, cottage, and laundry. Each has its own living area, and there are 2 fully equipped kitchens and a kitchenette for flexibility. For smaller groups, you can reserve just 1 or 2 of the buildings, or all 3 to share the excitement most widely.
Spend your holiday teeing off on the 5 golf courses within 30 kilometers, or see a different side of the outdoors on a day trip to Point Nepean National Park. Visit Balnarring Beach in the morning to watch racehorses train or in the afternoon for a swim off its sandy shores.
