Middleton Bay Cottage - Best Views on the Peninsula

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property


Overlooking the beach at Middleton Bay - The sea views don't get any better than this! Whether summer or winter sit back, relax and watch the waves and the dolphins and seals from the large front lounge room windows. You will be 'blown away' by the stunning view and this comfortable beach house has everything you need for a relaxing beach holiday. Whales play in the bay out the front of the house and are there in June, July, August and September.

This is a beach lover's paradise and is meters from the beach that is immediately in front of the house with no passing traffic. It is a few minutes walk to the beautiful and secluded Basham's beach as well as Middleton's famous surfing beach.

A few minutes walk to Middleton township and the famous Middleton bakery and a five minute drive to the quaint town of Pt Elliot and the stunning Horseshoe Bay with its beach front cafes and restaurants. The township of Goolwa is ten minutes in the other direction.

Explore the local attractions

This is the ideal place to relax or do a bit of local site seeing. Situated half way between Victor Harbour with all its attractions such as Granite Island, the horse drawn tram, the Whale Centre and the Cockle train; and Goolwa with Hindmarsh Island, Sunday markets, cruises, wineries and great cafes and restaurants.

The fantastic coast line offers great opportunities for walking and bike riding along coastal bike tracks.

The Fleurieu Peninsula has many attractions for adults and children.

Whale Watching

During the whale watching season the cottage offers fantastic views of the whales from the comfort of your lounge room. Watch the whales as they breach and play in the ocean directly in front of the cottage.

Other sea life, dolphins and seals, can be seen at all times of the year and frolicking not more than 50 meters from the cottage.

Amazing view

  • 5 of 5

Middleton Cottage has the most amazing view of Middleton Bay and Middleton Point. As a lover of surf, I couldn’t believe my luck. The building itself is like the quaint beach shack of childhood and it has everything you need inside: comfy beds and lounges, a hot shower, a very powerful reverse cycle air conditioner and a kitchen with everything you need - the coffee plunger is always my first measure of a good kitchen. I stayed on my own this time but next time plan to take the family.

Another great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed another great stay in this lovely property where we all enjoyed time on the beach/rocks with the house close by.

The new couches and updated heating/cooling were great updates since our last stay.

Recommend this property for a relaxing escape.

Fabulous location

Middleton Bay Cottage is a perfect getaway. Quirky clean shack with everything that you could possibly need. The views are spectacular and a truly great place to chill.

Awesome Property

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this property. The owner Anya was fantastic & responded so quick to my enquiry. No hidden costs like so many other rentals, what is quoted is what you pay which was really appreciated. The views were awesome & we could watched our kids playing on the beach from the house giving them the freedom to come & go as they pleased. Less nagging for the parents. The property was clean & has everything you need supplied & more. Our group had 2 adults & 4 kids & although the cottage isnt massive we had plenty of space without being on top of each other. We didnt want to leave & will hopefully be back soon. Highly recommended to anyone wanting a relaxing weekend away. Thankyou Anya for letting us share you little piece of paradise :)

Great Views - We Saw Whales from the Lounge!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Middleton Bay Cottage. We had everything we needed and were comfortable. Our highlight and the reason we stayed was to see whales, which we saw and thoroughly enjoyed!

Ridiculously relaxing!!!

  • 5 of 5

It's certainly not the biggest or most luxurious holiday home along that beautiful stretch of coast, but this little cottage is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT for anyone needing a few days (or weeks) of serious R&R. The view is incredible with waves breaking as far as the eye can see. Surfers young and old pepper the bay - live sports entertainment right at your doorstep. There's plenty of walking to be done, either foraging among the rocks, ambling along the beach or stretching it out on the paths. And the comfort level is more than adequate for a family holiday or one-person vacation. If you're itching for some time-out in a cosy cottage with what must be the best view in the bay, this is the spot!
