Perfect for a weekend getaway or a creative holiday, my beloved straw bale facility is finally ready to be enjoyed by everybody. I have just opened up the back room hoping to entice musicians and other creative types down here to enjoy what other folks have already discovered. 5 minutes walk to the centre of Dromana beach and shops and central to the entire Mornington peninsula, I designed the studio to be extremely well insulated, both thermally and sonically! Pack your gear and head on down.

The place was interesting. Good for people who don't require a kitchen. Beautiful outdoor area, Hugh was very generous with lending snorkels etc. Great position , close enough to the amenities (walking distance) but far enough away form the noise of the main street

First of all, Hugh is absolutely lovely! Gave us excellent suggestions about where to get a drink and a feed, as well as which adventure parks had mini golf. He also set up the barbecue in the back yard for us on the sunny Saturday afternoon so we could enjoy the sunshine. The l…
