Secluded ocean beach hideaways, private dining experience prepared by your inhouse chef. Gourmet breakfasts delivered each morning, bathe by moonlight beneath the tangle of ti-tree in your own outdoor spa bath.

Just over an hours drive from Melbourne, tucked into the National Park that hugs the Bass Straight coastline, all the way from the heads of Port Phillip Bay at Point Nepean to the lighthouse on the cliffs at Cape Schanck. Big blue backyard, Mornington Peninsula?s ocean beach retreat is the creation of Paul and Lisa Dempsey, who combined their talents to design and build this untraditional luxurious bed and breakfast accommodation for couples.
Nestled in the ti-tree, the hideaways have been built independently of the main house. Meander along the boardwalks from your car park through the indigenous coastal forest to access your piece of paradise. The gentle curved ceilings of each hideaway soar above the enourmous kingsize beds. Using contemporary building materials, these simple and spacious interiors, with light filled ensuites, invite instant relaxation.
Big blue backyard has 3 individual, well appointed, hideaways. Simply designed and decorated with a unique uncluttered style to reinforce the focus on relaxing.
Secluded decks off each hideaway offer a place to enjoy a glass of bubbles, laze away the afternoon, emesh yourself in the smell of ti tree and the sound of the ocean rolling in or soak in the opulent outdoor double spa bath. Return from a long beach walk and shower al fresco.
