Hotel Overview

“Only an hour away from Melbourne on the Mornington Peninsula is Big Blue Backyard, a superb coastal retreat by St Andrews Beach. Run by Paul and Lisa, a stay in one of the three hideaways is superbly relaxing and private, with the couple offering an attentive but discreet service. Paul has lovingly built the hideaways using local materials, ensuring each is unique and full of character based on an African, Beach or Bush theme. There’s no restaurant, but private dining is available on the deck outside your hideaway (or inside depending on the weather); Paul does all the cooking. A delicious, freshly prepared, 'long tray' breakfast is delivered to your cabin each morning and is included in the rate. Paul prepares amazing dinners, served for two, to each cabin (don't forget to book your dinner a few days before you arrive). Produce for all his menus is locally sourced and for 3 seasons of the year they team up with a very local (4km away) organinc farm for all vegetables, salad and some fruits. A tropical oasis with exceptional service. ”
