There are so many things to do. A wide range of wonderful, well-known eateries, wineries and restaurants are within 5 to 15 minutes drive.

Quiet beaches, surf beaches, maizes, national parks, wetlands, Arthurs Seat, Flinders Golf Course, Red Hill day spa, Peninsula Hot Springs, skate park, horse riding, and more, all 5 to 30 mins away.

Merricks Beach is a one hour drive from Melbourne and is only 5 minutes from Balnarring Shopping Village which boasts an excellent super market and quality shops and eateries.

This is a safe and friendly community where many members work together to protect and preserve the environment and foreshore.


- Like most of this small coastal village, Beeswing Cottage is serviced by tank water and as such, consideration with water usage is necessary during Summer

- There is no laundry, however a laundromat is located 5 minutes drive away at Balnarring. The cottage has a small clothes line outside and also portable clothes drying racks.

- Smoking is allowed outside only. There is an undercover area.

- The back yard is fully fenced but, (sorry), NO PETS as we sometimes have Koalas and other fauna in the yard.

- A large umbrella and a banana lounge are available.

LINEN: Quilts and quilt covers are provided. However, you will need to provide your own sheets, pillow cases and towels. Tea towels, hand towels and bath mats are provided.

Slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Beeswing...the house had all the comforts we liked and the bed was especially comfy! Just loved the peace and quiet and the short walk to the beach. Definitely a home away from home...just lovely!

Feel the Serenity

We had a wonderful holiday at Beeswing Cottage. It was everything we had hoped for ! We loved the peace and quiet, the beautiful garden full of native birds and the wonderful location just a 10 minute walk to the beach. It had everything we needed. We are already dreaming of our next visit. Thank you Linda for letting us enjoy your little piece of heaven. :)

Charming property!

We enjoyed a relaxing and refreshing holiday in this very well presented house. A great family getaway, or good for couples, with very comfortable furniture and lovely outdoor space.
