Questions You May Have

Can you offer early check in and late check out?
We will always be flexible, if we possibly can be . However we cannot guarantee, or indeed offer it until 24 hours before your arrival at the property. In peak holiday season, we regret it is not generally possible

Can we stay for just one night ?
Because we are a self-catering private rental property , and not a hotel , we cannot offer a one night rental. We have a two night minimum rental throughout the year,  except for public holiday periods when a three night minimum rental is required.

Does the cottage have Wifi?
The cottage does not have broadband wifi. We believe that it should be a retreat where couples relax, disengage from the world …..and speak to each other! However if you must have it, we can organise a mobile wifi device, if given 2 days notice

Is there car parking at the cottage?
There is one allocated , covered car park spot for the cottage . Given the rare location of the property  ,on the sand at the bottom of the cliff , please be aware it is not possible to park right outside the cottage .Access to the cottage is down a long wooden boardwalk . It is illuminated and has a handrail , but a good degree of fitness is required ! Not suitable for guests who are physically challenged

Can we invite friends to stay ?
The cottage only has one bedroom, and is only suitable for two people.

Is there a daily clean and linen service?
Given we are a self catering , private property we do not offer a daily housekeeping service . If you require it , we can quote separately for such a service.

Can we have a wedding or party at the property , or on the beach in front of the property?
We have a ” no party policy ” for this particular property . We have other properties that we may be able to offer for your celebration , please ask us.

Can we bring our pet to the cottage?

D Mc Cracken

We had the most wonderful and relaxing break at Spindrift.

The property was lovely and suited our needs perfectly. It has also been styled beautifully.

We thoroughly enjoyed the glorious sunrises each morning and dramatic late afternoon skies

Balnarring Beach itself is such a beautiful place and locals walking along the beach were so friendly and agreed with us that it is a little slice of paradise.

We would greatly love to return to Spindrift again this year

Many thanks Sioned

Balnarring Beach, Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia


Balnarring Beach is approximately 45 minutes from Melbourne and 90 minutes from Melbourne Airport . Spindrift address is 9 Cliff Road , Balnarring . Victoria , 3926


From the airport, you need to get on to the City Link and head south East towards the M1 – MONASH Freeway. Head out on his road for about 30 minutes until you see a signpost for EASTLINK. Join EASTLINK and get in the right hand lane following signs for Frankston, do not follow signs for Ringwood as you will be going north and you should be going south towards Frankston.

The EASTLINK is the M3 and you will be joining it from the M1 between junctions 8 and 9 . Remain on this road for about twenty minutes past junction 13 , until you see a signpost for Portsea. This is the PENINSULA LINK. Take this left hand feeder road to Portsea and this Peninsula Link Road will take you another twenty minutes south until you see a junction for BALNARRING. Take this left hand exit and follow all signs to Balnarring it will take about fifteen minutes longer to reach Balnarring village.

When you approach Balnarring village, there is a T-junction, and you will see The Red Hill Bakery on your right. Across the T junction to your left, you will see a sign that says Balnarring Beach.

Take that road and follow it for some 5 Kms, until you pass Balnarring Beach General Store. At that point continue to follow the road, sharp right bend, then sharp left bend. This is still called Balnarring Beach RD at this point. Continue to follow the road and take second turning on your right… Go up the hill, and follow the road sharp left – this is Bayview Road. At the end of Bay view Rd there’s a T junction, and it turns into a gravel road.

Take the left fork , so you retain the sea on your left. This brings you into Cliff Rd and Number 9 is the second driveway on the left You will see a small number 9 on the fence, and a steep driveway . Please wait here and call us at this point, and we will walk up from the cottage to the main road, and meet you at the top. We shall direct you down the drive, and show you where your covered park space is.
