I absolutely love offering the yurt to our guests! I feel blessed to live in this beautiful place and have the opportunity to share it with others. I have always loved yurts, and it is still my dream to live in one full time! We are very excited to offer the yurt as a unique accommodation experience and are committed to making it a luxurious, comfortable and relaxing place to be. I am an experienced yoga teacher, feel free to ask me if you would like to book a private yoga class at the yurt.

This was a great getaway and is perfect for the weekend. The yurt is isolated and you feel as if you are a world away, in this amazing structure. There is obvious attention to detail and you can see the amazing touches that Kelly makes, to ensure you feel welcome and comfortable. In regards to activity, the beach is only a 10 minute walk away making it perfect for the fresh morning walk. The area is abundant with things to do markets, such as the Portsea market and the well recognised the Red Hill Market. Point Nepean is worth is a visit. Cape Schanck is a must-do, and for that sunset spot or a day at the beach, Gunnamatta Beach is ideal. The Peninsula Hot Springs is only 10 minutes away from the Yurt, but best to reserve for weekdays as weekends it can be busy. Food wise? Plenty to choose from but also the Yurt has an outdoor kitchen and dining area. Blue Mini Café in Rosebud and Captain of Rye are both great cafes!...

I havn’t stopped talking about how much I loved staying here. Stayed at the yurt for two nights and I felt like it wasn’t enough. The little touches Kelly has left makes it feel so cozy and homey. She has really done an amazing job and we will 100% be back....
