Welcome to Dalmuir Homestead, a spacious and gracious 1930s property, that oozes olde world charm and delightful quirky touches.  Dalmuir will remind you of a simpler time, when home comforts and charm with family was what a holiday was all about.  This lovely fuss free timber home is welcoming from the moment you step inside, whilst from the front wrap round verandah, you can enjoy gorgeous vistas of the sand and sparkling water of Dromana Beach just beyond.

If excellent beach location is your no.1 want when planning your beach escape, then Dalmuir definitely ticks the box.  The street is off Point Nepean Rd and the house is only a 50m stroll before you're on the sand of Dromana beach.  Early morning beach dips or evening strolls in search of icecream up the street, are all easy options when the beach and Dromana shops are so easily reached.  Bonus is the large park across the road with plenty of gas BBQs and a kids playground.

Dalmuir offers 3 bedrooms in the main house, 1 x queen + 1 x single, 1 x queen + 2 x singles, and 1 x queen.  It accommodates up to 8 people.  The main kitchen/lounge/dining area has vaulted ceilings and an airy feel with ample room for everyone to find a spot, sit back and relax.  The lounge has big comfy couches and armchairs as well as with a TV and DVD player.  Loads of books and board games plus children's toys are available to keep everyone entertained on those quieter days.  Lovely period pieces add to the feeling of a bygone era.  Open the lounge doors to the outdoor verandah, and let the sunshine and sea air in.

The wide front timber verandah, has lots of seating, be it around the outdoor table or one of the cushioned wicker chairs.  Sit outside with a good book and a pot of tea and while away the day in perfect tranquility.  

The much loved kitchen is of its era but has all the basic amenities and cooking gear for easy meal time preparation.  Sit around grandma's table and indulge in mealtime conversation with your nearest and dearest or maybe a board game late into the night.  Other welcomed amenities located in the main lounge, are a split system, gas heater and ceiling fan.

The property also offers a separate bungalow out the back with 1 x double + 1 x single bunks + 1 x single bed, so another 5 can sleep here.  The bungalow would suit teenagers who  want their own space.  Guests can use the small kitchenette and table as well.  The bungalow is available for an additional fee but please note, unlike the main house beds, NO linen is not provided for bungalow beds.

Dalmuir has a large grassed back yard and is perfect for kids to run around in, or for a game of cricket.  But if lazy days at the beach is your thing, then Dalmuir offers unparalleled access.  Oh and a cute beach box equipped with some fun beach toys, chairs and beach umbrella is also available to rent.  You can store your own beach gear in there for the duration of your stay.

Please note Dalmuir Homestead is a registered Short Stay Accommodation property and all guests are required to abide by with Mornington Peninsula Shire Short Stay Accommodation Code of Conduct. Details of the Code will be made available to guests after booking and a copy is available at the house.

Good House Holiday Rentals also offer Peninsula Hot Springs Priority Bath House Passes for Dalmuir Homestead guests. Aside from Priority passes, Good House Stay and Bathe Packages include compliment use of Spa Bathrobes and Spa Towels. All details of Good House Stay and Bathe Packages are available here. Packages are easily added to accommodation bookings at checkout.

What you see is what you get, and Dalmuir remains deliberately untouched and is definitely not a cookie cutter property.  Yes some wallpaper is peeling, some paint has faded, but this doesn't detract from the gorgeousness of Dalmuir Homestead.  It is steeped in family history and generations have enjoyed the pleasure it offers.

Dalmuir is now available for you to make your own treasured memories.

A home away from home

My extended family celebrated an early Christmas at the homestead and it felt like the house appreciated the love and laughter that filled the large rooms and veranda. My father-in-law from NZ challenged his grandsons to table tennis and the large circle of chairs in the lounge room provided opportunities to talk and share stories and presents. Dalmuir Homestead was the perfect location for a summer holiday being so close to the beach. The boat shed was in a lovely location shaded by banksias and the sea is clear and inviting. There were lots of opportunities to walk along the beach or to the shops and the playground across the road kept the younger ones amused. Dalmuir Homestead is the perfect place to stay and reminisce of days gone by with its retro style furnishing yet functional layout and comfortable places to relax.

Oh Carol..Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are so glad you had a wonderful family holiday together and we look forward to hosting you again. Take care.

This house was immaculately

This house was immaculately clean and had very good directions inside about how to operate everything. It had ample supplies for us and I could tell it was well managed and planned specifically for people traveling. I didn’t even need to buy laundry soap which usually is the case. Excellent communication and safe and easy check in. Love the key code door that made me feel more safe and not having to keep track of keys. It was so well organized we sought out other homes managed by Good House also because we knew the quality would likely match.

We enjoyed our time there.

Loretta was a fantastic host and the property is a great place to stay for a young family. We enjoyed our time there. Rye is a perfect area for travelling with a toddler. We were near the jumping castle and amusement park, a great park to play in and a toddler friendly front beach and toddler friendly coffee shop with a play area and free babycinos. We will stay in that area again soon. Location is within convenient driving distance to everything that matters locally, and the house is renovated and comfortable. We recommend staying there.

We had a fabulous beach holiday

Loretta was kind, considerate and very easy to communicate with. We had a fabulous beach holiday with our big family, and there was enough room in the house for everyone to have space and do their own thing when they wanted to. We loved having sunset dinners on the verandah, watching DVDs in the lounge room after the babies went to bed and cooking up a storm in the cute retro kitchen – I even managed to get some quiet work time away from the family chaos each day in the sun room, which is beautifully secluded from the rest of the house. The house is really well located - close to the beach and with beautiful beach views, but not too close to the road that runs along the beach. We would definitely stay here again!

The property looks like it was the original house in the street

Loretta was very easy to communicate with whenever I had a question. The property looks like it was the original house in the street and has a lot immaculate design touches from the 1940s to 1960s. The communal space was great to hang out in and the beach is extremely close by. We had an amazing and memorable weekend there. Highly recommended.

The house was very clean and communication

The house was very clean and communication with the host was great. Unfortunately the pool table was broken so we couldn’t use that but over all we had a great time and enjoyed our stay

Hi Rebecca, thank you for your kind words. Thank you for letting us know of the problem re the pool table which is new to us. Cheers.

Amazing house!

Amazing house! Everything was perfectly clean and well-kept. Cute added touches with the fairy lights outside, lots of board and card games to use and overall a very spacious modern home. The outside area is ideal for hot hangout days and has enough room for many people to use - same with the bungalow and living area for colder days. Great location hidden from all the chaos but only a short 5 min drive to the beach and shops. Would definitely recommend!
