St Andrews Beach Australia
03 5988 6011


The romance of the sea, the curves of the dunes,
the stillness of the bush.....

Salt-scented air, bright stars in an ink-black sky,
an emerald tangle of trees, the whisper of waves.

Welcome to a secluded coastal hideaway on the Mornington Peninsula

Designed for couples, for romancing, for reconnecting, for relaxing,
for relishing time together.  

An hour’s drive from Melbourne.  A world away from city life. 

Big Blue Backyard is a secluded, romantic coastal hideaway for couples

Come here to relax and reconnect.

Come here for good food.   Come here to hide away.

Come here to find yourself and each other (in a big bed, in a star-spying spa bath, on deserted St Andrews Beach).

Enjoy the luxury of having breakfast at whatever time you like with delicious Continental provisions tucked into your fridge, replenished daily


Come here to do anything you like or nothing at all.

Choose from three individual, secluded hideaways, all just minutes from the sand. You couldn't expect a hotel room.  Picture instead, a tin beach shack hidden in the tea trees. Your own private outdoor spa bath no matter which hideaway you choose. A big comfy bed and uniquely creative attention to details.  Spoil yourself with delicious food, fun films and and eclectic selection of music.  Spoil yourselves with simple, creative, barefoot comfort.

[Imagine a lightfilled bathroom stocked with luxurious Olie & Olive bath products. Imagine a big bed, topped with plump cushions and soft fabrics. Imagine a bag of just-baked biscuits, proper coffee, and books to borrow.]

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
