The yurt hideaway is in a great location! It is a short walk to the beach of the bay (900 metres) so there is no need to worry about parking. We highly recommend an evening stroll along the beach at sunset - in all seasons, it is stunning!

The Peninsula Hot Springs and the Rye back beaches are less than 10 minutes drive from the yurt.

From the lookouts at Arthurs Seat, you can enjoy amazing views of the bay, on a clear day, you can even see the outline of Melbourne.
A short 15 minute drive to Red Hill and you'll find yourself surrounded by forest.

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.
