AJoy Beach House is exactly what a beach house should offer: A relaxed, home away from home, close to the beach and big enough to find your own space. Merricks offers plenty to do apart from the beach, but you're just as likely to laze around the house.

The space

Note: Pricing varies with number of people and time of year. AirBnB will calculate correct pricing.

Discover the Magic of Merricks Beach. Stay & Enjoy the Relaxed Beachside Lifestyle.

It's only natural that you'll love this unique coastal location with the beautiful swimming beach, yacht club and coastal trails within a short walk, plus the fabulous northerly aspect and tranquil garden setting amongst the gum trees.

In winter, go for a beach walk then curl up in front of either the two open fire places. Cook up a banquet and gather around the feasting table, while the kids have a ping-pong tournament.

This spacious 3 bedroom home is ideal for families and couples. Two living areas allow kids can have their own space. It has an ideal casual dining / family room to the rear that enjoys the garden views and has a rustic decor that's finished in mud brick walls, recycled timber feature beams and red brick floors. Large window panels and French doors bring in an abundance of natural light and garden views.

Come through the breezeway to a separate wing with an open plan kitchen / meals and lounge with polished floors or out through big French doors to the paved terrace that provide a perfect protected spot for meals and entertaining on the lawns. Splashes of colour from wild flowers and the native plantings are enhanced by the back drop of gum trees and semi-rural acres to the rear.

Low maintenance and definitely unassuming from the street front, this wonderful beach house will be the home of many happy memories of time away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

We stayed with two children and my in-laws. Kids never got bored with a plenty of toys and play area inside and outside. We all really enjoyed our stay!' Thank you, Fleur!

A Joy is a lovely house with great facilities, particularly for a family or larger group of friends. There are some hidden gems to explore close by and the house itself is great for relaxing and some downtime.

Perfect to watch a movie by the fire for a girls weekend, comfy beds and beautiful location. Great place to meet with friends/family and have a great catch up. Fabulous for a getaway and with everything you need we will be back and a few of the girls will too with family. Also we loved the ipod and tunes with the speekers outside, made for a great atmosphere.

Fleur was great in providing all the advice needed to make this a comfortable weekend away. The house itself comfortably fitted our party and we had a great time playing basketball on the lawn and table tennis inside. The beds were really comfortable (I slept in one of the two singles), and the highlight of the weekend away was playing cricket on the beach with my friends from highschool. If you want a relaxed and roomy abode for a decent price only a short distance out of the urban grind, this is the place for you!

We had a great girls weekend at Merricks. The house was a great place to relax in front of the fire. The room was a little cool - but cosier once the fire was roaring. The kitchen was well equipped to eat in - the bin in the bench was the only real trick. The beds weren't overly comfy. And some even slid around on the floor. But it was a great stay - with lots to do and see.

About Fleur

Hi my name is Fleur. My husband Mike and I have a small flock of holiday houses and cabins, that we run as our management company Dufflebird.

We manage 9 Holiday Houses that are all within 2.5 hours of Melbourne. All places are different but they are similar in that they all have personality and they are all surrounded by nature.

3 of our 9 properties are more like cabins than houses.
3 of our properties belong to us, and the other 6 belong to friends (or friends of friends).
7 of the 9 properties are pet friendly (and 6 of those welcome well behaved inside dogs).
Some are rustic and eclectic & some are more contemporary and luxurious.
All places are close to beaches or waterfalls.

Each house is fitted out to feature its own individual character and all are completely self-contained. We have set them all up so that guests can feel like its their own private getaway, while in residence.

Its a commitment keeping each place well maintained and organised. a labour of love. We hope to appeal to like minded souls who are respectful to our properties, the neighbours (in places where there are neighbours) and the surrounding community.

Fingers crossed, we seem to luck in with kindred spirits ....most of the time.
