The location is good - easy travel to everywhere in the Mornington Peninsula. We stayed in the front house, which is decorated circa 1985, but we found it very dark inside, even on sunny days. The shrubs & trees around the house are all overgrown, so the skylight in the lounge area was needed. We didn't sit at the outdoor... More

Hi Carol, thank you for your comments. Prior to your arrival we had some hot weather and as a result two main windows had their sun blinds lowered, which shaded the windows to prevent too much heat build up in the apartment. For the same reason we have trees shading the front porch and this allows our guests to sit... More

My friend and I just recently stayed. Derek was so lovely at explaining how the spa and everything else worked. Being 2 mums it was a perfect get away and having the spa easy access was a bonus! We definitely know we will be re booking again in the near future! Thank you for your lovely hospitality!

We were a little taken aback by the militant manner in which the regulations were given to us on arrival. We were extremely disappointed to find that the timer on the spa is automatically switched off for 12 hours of the day! This was the main draw-card to this establishment and we would have gone elsewhere had we known. The... More

My Mum booked this so that when my parents visited from W.A they could explore a bit of the pennisula. My partner and I are not really B&B people usually but we had such a beautiful stay. The hosts are friendly without being intrusive, kind witohut being fussy. The beds were beautiful - I slept so well! I can't recommend... More

We stayed for 3 nights at Puddleduck Spa Apartment and family took the other half for 2 nights. The beds were comfortable, the whole cottage was well presented, and the gardens were pretty. We were all extremely pleased with the property which is well located for exploring the Mornington Peninsula. The owner gave us some good recommendations for local places... More

We stayed at the Puddleduck for one night in order to attend a wedding in the area. We stayed in the front cottage which we found very clean, tidy & comfortable. The owners are very friendly helpful people and were kind enough to drive us to the wedding venue several kilometres away. The cottage is located in a very quiet... More

Stayed at puddleduck cottage for 2 nights, the cottage was lovely, the highlight was of course the jacuzzi! The owner was sound and kept away which was respectful! Pity about the neighbours with the dog next door, who was building something and decided that 9:30 am on a sat and sun am was an ideal time for the angel grinder!... More
