Balnarring Retreat is a charming renovated cottage 800m to Balnarring Beach and 400m to Balnarring Village. Balnarring is situated in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula. An area famous for world-class wineries, vineyards, restaurants and attractions. You will have all of this right at your fingertips.
Balnarring Retreat is split into two areas. The main house, which includes two bedrooms with a seperate toilet, bathroom, living room, kitchen and dining area plus a light-filled reading room, which is the place to be watching the sunrise with a warm drink. Throughout the house guests will enjoy large sash windows, giving a light, bright feel and a roaring open fire to keep you warm with a comfortable ambience. Throughout the house is a plethora of indoor plants which brighten the spaces and freshen the air. We include crisp white linen, bath towels, beach towels, complimentary toiletries and modern touches to the old house which has renovated bathrooms and freshly painted walls.
To the rear of the property is the Garden Room which features a split king bed, private ensuite and shower plus a deck, overlooking the kitchen garden, where you can pick seasonal vegetables and herbs.
When 1-4 persons are booked, the Garden Room is closed off. When 5 or 6 persons are booked, the Garden Room opens. This is to save on cleaning and linen costs. If you want all bedrooms open, this can be arranged on request for an extra cost. E.g. 1 person in each room.
