The romance of the sea, the stillness of the bush.....
the magic of St Andrews Beach.
Salt-scented air; bright stars in an ink-black sky; an emerald tangle of trees; the whisper of waves.
Welcome to Big Blue Backyard on the Mornington Peninsula
The perfect accommodation for romancing.
For relishing your time together.
Just an hour’s drive from Melbourne, but a world away from city life.
Big Blue Backyard is a secluded, romantic retreat designed with couples in mind.
Come here to relax and reconnect.
Come here for good food. Come here to hide away.
Come here to discover the Peninsula.
Come here to forget yourself.
Come here to find yourself, and each other (in a big bed, in a star-spying spa bath, on deserted St Andrews Beach, over chef-cooked breakfasts, delicious dinners and wonderful local wine).
Come here to do anything you like or nothing at all.
Choose from three individual, boutique beachside hideaways, all just minutes from the sand. Instead of a hotel room, picture a private cabin, hidden amid tea trees. Expect to be spoiled with wine and food and films and music and the crisp cotton linen.
[Imagine a sexy lightfilled bathroom stocked with luxurious Olie & Olive bath products. Imagine a big bed, topped with plump cushions and soft fabrics. Imagine a mini-fridge stocked with Australian beers and wines. Imagine a bag of just-baked biscuits, proper coffee, and books to borrow.]
Bed down by the beach and bush at this romantic eco-friendly retreat, built by hand using local materials. This is a labour of love. This is a creative space. This is beach and bush. This is simply brilliant, beautiful, tasty luxury.
This was our second stay at Big Blue Backyard and once again Paul and Lisa impressed. We booked the bush retreat for our 10th Wedding Anniversay and were welcomed with warm greetings and smiles. We always feel at ease here and had a very relaxing and wonderful night. Trip Advisor Review
