Our vintage renovated cottage is a 2 minute walk to the beach and yacht club. It has 4 bedrooms & sleeps 10 people.
Bedroom 1 king sized bed, Bedroom 2 - Queen sized bed, Bedroom 3 - king single bunks x 2 (sleeps 4) , Bedroom 4 - king single bunks x 1 (sleeps 2). Overlooks acres of lush farmland. 5 minutes drive to Balnarring shops , cafes, restaurants, wineries & skate park.

The space

Our cottage is the 7th house from the beach & overlooks rolling fields with cows happily wandering and grazing, The cottage has polished floorboards and white walls throughout. We have kept our furnishings simple & therefore restful. Imagine dining outside, under the the stars and listening to the sounds of the ocean. A Webber BBQ is available. There is also a shady alfresco with lounge next to the outdoor dining area. A space to stretch out with a good book. There are two living spaces, one at the front of the house which includes open plan kitchen, dining & lounge with wood fire and a separate lounge tv room. There is ducted heating throughout. Our cottage and in fact all of the houses at Merricks Beach are on rainwater and as such we don't have a laundry at home. We pop down to the local shops where the Balnarring Laundromat is situated. The ladies there can offer you a service wash or you can DYI and slip around the corner for a yummy brunch or cuppa whilst the washing is being done. We do have an outside clothesline if you prefer your clothes to dry naturally. There is a little circular stainless steel basin in the bathroom if you would like to do any hand washing. This basin is also the perfect size for bathing a little one. We have left some Ecco friendly laundry detergent just in case. There is tea and plunger coffee & some organic sugar for you to enjoy when you arrive. The water you drink is from rainwater tanks that are filtered.
White Beach Cottage is a relaxing and fun place to hangout.
We love our beach cottage and we really hope that you have a wonderful stay.

Davini was a fantastic host - really easy to deal with, and great at getting in touch with all the details. The location is perfect for a weekend away - the beach is right near by, Merricks General Store is a nice walk away, and the proximity to the wineries and other activities in the Peninsula was spot on. The house easily slept 10 of us, and all the guests commented on how comfortable the beds were (all single beds were King Singles which makes a difference). Davini and Scott have also kindly supplied board games and a Nintendo Wii which helped to keep us entertained. Would definitely book again!

The property was well equipped and very comfortable... we felt at home instantly. You are literally 6 houses from the beach which was lovely for a morning walk! The area is quiet and perfect for a family trip or a romantic getaway. It is a short car trip to Balnarring or Flinders and so close to great winearies and restaurants. The communication with Davini was so easy and lovely. I would highly recommend a stay at this property!

The host was very friendly and extremely helpful. The house is a lot nicer than stated in the description. Brand name sheets, high quality furnishings and had everything we could of needed including BBQ. We particularly enjoyed a wide selection of board games to play and there was even a Nintendo Wii. We travelled in a group of friends to attend a wedding, the house was a comfortable for our 10 ppl group. All the single beds were king singles which are really comfortable. There is an amazing front beach within a 5 minute walk from the house. Merricks is a hidden gem! Check out the Merricks General Store. I would highly recommend this place to both groups or families.

A true beach retreat! Davini's place is better than can be captured. She has gone over and above to make the home cozy and welcoming. Merricks beach area is lovely and quiet with easy access to local goodies. The beds are fabulous - including all the bunks! We will be back!

Scott and I are happily married and have six kids aged between 24 & 15. I'm an Actor & Film Producer and Scott is a Managing Director of a boutique company in the building trade. We live busy, fun lives and like to share our vintage beach cottage with friends from all over the world. I love chocolate, coffee, good red wine and lazy walks along the beach - We all love to keep fit and vibrant and we eat organic food wherever possible. It's a 200m stroll to Merricks Beach Yacht Club and our tranquil, child friendly magic beach. At low tide you can enjoy a rockpool ramble and surf beaches are nearby.
