we love this because...
CAPE HOUSE is our go-to for when we want to bring all our friends and family together.
Some of our group love to drive a ball down a fairway and from here the rest of the group can watch them do it as the house backs onto the 4th hole of the RACV Cape Schanck Golf Course.
What fun! a new house to visit that lets four-legged friends like me sleep inside.
Yay! a garden with tall fences to keep me safe. Love the trees and bushes, there are lots of interesting smells. Are those possums in the trees?
And there's a special basket just for me. No way! What's in there? Ooh, ooh! a treat from PAWDINKUM. I LOVE THIS PLACE.
We absolutely love the space in this house (and the instagrammable art and interiors), with large groups it sometimes feels like you can't get away from the crowd...but not here. The bedrooms are also vast so everyone feels like they are living in luxury.
The teenagers use the gym and table tennis and test out the sauna but we prefer to take our exercise outdoors along the spectacular, rugged coastline around Cape Schanck with its cliff faces and rocky outcrops a popular, yet untouched peninsula destination.
There are so many places to walk and wonder at the native flora and fauna (walk the Bushrangers Bay track in the late afternoon for an encounter with a Kangaroo as they leap from the lower ground to the upper right across your path). From the Cape Schanck lighthouse car park, there is a network of scenic walks and 200 metres east of Cape Schanck is the lookout where Bushrangers Bay Walk commences along the cliff tops of this untouched coastline. Along Main Creek is the Two Bay Walking Track stretching 26km through the countryside of the Mornington Peninsula.
For all things food, we head to the village of FLINDERS a short drive away and especially Pier Provedore. Here we grab coffee and provisions for dinner at home.
For a special evening, we head to the RACV Cape Schanck Resort where we grab a cocktail in the bar lounge and then eat at either Cape Restaurant or Samphire to complete our luxury escape.
