Base Haven is a self-contained studio tucked into the corner of our gorgeous family home on a quiet street in Balnarring. The vibrant village is 10 minutes walk in one direction & Balnarring Beach is 10 minutes walk in the other.
Whether you're down for a wedding or keen to taste the amazing cuisine at hatted restaurants Doot Doot Doot or Point Leo Estate, it's the perfect base for a weekend of exploring all the amazing sights the Mornington Peninsula has to offer! Explore, relax & unwind...

The space
Base Haven is a free-standing self-contained studio nestled into the back corner of our block on a quiet little street in Balnarring, on the beach side of the main road.

The studio has a kitchen, meals, lounge, bedroom with en-suite bathroom plus a little terrace out the front where you can enjoy sun-downers & a cheese board ;)

Your first breakfast is included & consists of local yummies - sourdough, jam, honey, milk.

Make yourself a cuppa from a range of organic herbal teas or a coffee from the pod-machine - I supply biodegradeable coffee pods from Melbourne companies.

Studio Features:
- Queen bed with luxe Sheridan linen
- Large built-in robe
- Dedicated Wifi
- Google Chromecast (watch your own Netflix etc)
- Reverse cycle heating & air-conditioning
- Full kitchen with gas cooktop, oven & good range of utensils
- Giant antipasto board
- Nespresso coffee machine
- Organic teas, milk, butter, local honey, jam & some other basic condiments
- Picnic basket & turkish towels for the beach
- Cruiser BIKES with helmets & bike lock, perfect for adventures to the village or the beach!

Although we have a futon couch that folds down into a single bed, the space is best suited for couples or families with one little kid or baby (who are welcome but you'll need to bring your own baby stuff!).

Guest access
Access to the studio is via the garden path along the quiet side of our property. We ask that as it is our home you will be visiting, you respect our privacy and in exchange we will respect yours.
Once you're in, the studio has everything you need for a comfortable stay and feels very private.
We live on site in the main house & if we're home during your stay, you're very welcome to joins us for a coffee so that we can tell you all the hidden secrets of our local area!

Balnarring, Victoria, Australia

Balnarring is one of the Peninsula's best kept secrets, with a bustling village atmosphere and a long, kid-friendly beach that is great for paddling, swimming, kayaking, windsurfing or simply just kicking back on the sand without the crowds.
Only 5 minutes down the road from Jackalope & the Rare Hare Food & Wine Store, the Merricks General Wine Store and the Somers General Store you are surrounded by great places to grab a coffee or treat yourself to some of the most scrumptious food on any menu.

My name is Kate & my husband (Kendall) and I are from Balnarring Beach on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula just outside Melbourne, Australia. We love stand up paddle boarding, mountain biking, hiking, camping, exploring, sailing & pretty much seeking out as much adventure as we can as often as possible. We enjoy cooking, drinking good wine & beer and of course, drinking coffee! Can't wait to meet you, somewhere, out there, in the big wide world... Kate & Kendall

During your stay
This is our home and we will usually be around when we have guests in the studio, so please expect normal everyday activities to be happening - watering the garden, cooking on the BBQ, or coming & going to & from the beach or the village.
If we are planning on being away when you book then we will give you advanced notice.
We're more than happy to answer any questions or share our local knowledge but will otherwise leave you to enjoy a private and comfortable stay :)
