Peter and Lucy were totally wonderful hosts. The bedroom was beautifully presented, welcoming with an ensuite bathroom.
As promised, breakfast was included which included fresh fruit, muesli and delicious coffee made with a coffee machine (so we had a latte). I'm all about "real" coffee, so this was a treat rather than perculated coffee. They also had this amazing local sour dough bread which was delicious and so highly recommended that we went in ourselves and bought a loaf!
They provided great information on cafes, restaurants, things to do, wineries to visit, the best chocolate to buy in Flinders (which I forgot to do - doh!), and overall were warm, open and absolutely lovely.
Centrally located around that coastline, I highly recommend this lovely dwelling to stay.
We enjoyed the stay very much - the room was gorgeous, bed was comfortable which was perfect for us after a long drive. Lucy and Peter are such a lovely couple, we enjoyed their nice hospitality and good chats in the mornings. They also gave us heaps of good suggestions on food and daily travels. Their organic garden was very impressive.
Had a great stay at Lucy & Peter. Booked for two nights but ended up staying three nights. They are warm and lovely people with a good sense of humour. Always had time for a chat. Very helpful with everything. Made us feel welcome and at home.
The room was clean and very comfortable, as was the entire apartment. Good breakfast with fresh fruits and coffee.
Location is great - short walk to the beach and 5 min drive to Mornington Center.
Would definately stay there again. Highly recommended.
Thank you Peter and Lucy for an enjoyable and comfortable stay at your lovely house. We loved the room. The bed was extremely comfy. We had such amazing sleeps. The shower also stood out for us. After a couple of beach days, we loved coming home to the awesome water pressure in the shower! We really appreciated all your great advice about where to eat and explore. You went over and above! We also really loved how you shared your homegrown treats with us at breakfast time. You guys are lovely! Thank you again.
My husband, 7 week old and I had a lovely stay with Peter and Lucy. They were wonderful hosts and the breakfast was delicious and fresh. The room was extremely comfortable, clean and our 7 week old slept her first 8 hours in a night, which goes to show how lovely and peaceful the room was! Thank you for a very enjoyable, relaxing stay.
We had a fatastic stay.both lucy and Peter made us feel like we allready knew each other

My husband & I are passionate about traveling the globe via "roads less travelled" but in a safe and sensible manner. Because we live so far from everything (Australia) we usually holiday for 5-8 wks overseas. We have visited extensively, Morocco, Mexico, USA, Israel, France, Italy, Spain, Colombia, UK, Scotland, Panama,and Australia. Peter is native of Melbourne and I was born in Zihuatanejo, Mexico but educated in USA. I migrated to Australia in 1984. My number one goal is to make your visit to the Mornington Peninsula a happy one, providing you with a home away from home that is restful, genial, serene, and secure.
We'll be happy to answer all of your questions about vacationing here.
