** For videos, reviews from customers and more check out our pages on Instagram @bayfield_mount_martha & Facebk @bayfield3934.
** Minimum nights applied to peak periods.
** We've recently updated the house, which now includes all new indoor furniture such as couches, kitchen utensils, TV's, king and queen beds and more. Outside, there is a new BBQ, outside day beds, lounges, umbrellas and more to enjoy relaxing by the pool!
Whether you're coming down for a weekend escape in the middle of winter, or a month long holiday in summer, we guarantee you'll never want to leave our family holiday home, Bayfield.
Our beautiful house and property is located in the coastal town of Mount Martha, which is only a 50 minute drive south of Melbourne. Far enough away to know you're on holiday, but close enough to ensure you get the most out of a weekend visit.
Bayfield is truly one of a kind - the ultimate blend of coast and country living. Set on over 2 acres of private gardens, you're still only a 15 minute walk to the Mount Martha beach and shops. Sitting down in the living room or next to the pool, the only thing between you and the views of Port Phillip Bay are the tops of tress.
Foxtel (cable TV) and wifi access come included, which we think are essential when travelling, especially if on a work retreat. Foxtel is connected to both the TV in the main living room and also in the rumpus room, which is perfect for keeping the kids away from the adults! It is the premium Foxtel pack, which includes all sports, kids, movies and entertainment channels.
We've included a floor plan in our pictures, but it's ideally suited for:
- two families;
- three couples and a few kids; or even
- a girls weekend for 6!
It's all on one level, so perfect for the grandparents as well!
THE HOUSE - BEDROOMS
Main bedroom - king size bed with stunning views across the pool and Port Philip Bay. The main bedroom has a split system heater / air conditioner, large ensuite including spa bath and large walk in wardrobe.
Second bedroom - queen size bed with views across the pool.
Third bedroom - queen size bed with views across the pool.
Fourth bedroom / rumpus room - huge room which has 2 x king size single bunk beds - a total of 4 single beds. Also includes a kids living area with couches to seat at least 4 people, and a TV with it's own Foxtel box for separate viewing.
** All beds will be made up on your arrival, with fresh, professionally cleaned linen including towels.
Right next to the kitchen, the dining room seats 10 people in comfort overlooking the pool.
The living room is spectacular, as it overlooks the pool and tree tops, even while sitting down. Relax watching TV (also has full Foxtel connected), or just enjoying the view with the fire crackling in the background.
The study area is next to the living room, and includes a desk and chair for any work needing to be done.
Perfectly positioned to keep an eye on both the pool and cubby house, the well equipped kitchen includes a new fridge, microwave, oven, dishwasher, Nespresso coffee machine, rice cooker, pots and pans, toaster, tea, coffee, sugar and a knife block. We love cooking ourselves, so if you need something in particular for your stay, just let us know.
While doing the laundry is never a favourite chore for anyone on holiday, the laundry includes a brand new washing machine (with washing detergent) and dryer, extra fridge and easy access to the clothes line.
The pool and spa is without doubt one of the stand out features of the property. Being North facing, it gets sun all day, from dawn to dusk.
** Please note that the pool and spa can be heated on request. Due to the large size, it is very expensive to run. See below details for pricing.
While the pool is very large, the middle part is only about 30cm deep. This is perfect for wallowing around on a sunny day, but it is critical that people are aware of this, to ensure no one jumps in to this shallow area.
As you can see from the floor plan, all rooms in the house not only face the pool, but also have direct access to the pool. This means there are 6 possible entrances to the pool. All doors leading to the pool are compliant with self closing doors and latches, but if you have babies/toddlers/children who can not swim, it is something you need to be very aware of. If there are a number of people staying who can not swim, we don't believe our place would be well suited for you.
- this is our family home which we lease out on AirBnb all year round.
- we know all our neighbours well, and expect that all our guests respect our neighbours, keeping music down after 9pm.
- we know accidents happen, and if they do, we expect our guests to let us know ASAP.
- we do not allow other people on the property who are not listed down as guests.
- strictly no parties, schoolies groups, bucks/hens parties or other events.
Our house is for use by family and small groups of adult friends only. Sorry, but we cant accommodate young groups.
You will have access to the entire property, including the pool, spa and entire back yard. There is parking on the property for 3 cars.
There is a cubby house, gazebo and table tennis table for both young and old kids alike to enjoy.
The only section which is strictly out of bounds is the area around the pool equipment.
There are outside CCTV cameras placed on the entrance to the property, by the pool equipment and on the driveway.
Sorry, no animals (including small dogs) are allowed on the property.
Normal check out time is 10am, and check in 2pm. If we can, we'll always try to accommodate if these times don't suit.
We meet our guests on site and show them around.
We've collated heaps of information on the area, and include some suggested itinerary's depending on your length of stay.
Finally, we've been asked why we charge a cleaning fee. We charge for cleaning because not only is the house professionally cleaned, all the linen (sheets, towels etc) are also professionally cleaned after every stay. As people who use AirBnb ourselves, our stay is always that much nicer when we stay at places where the house is clean and the linen fresh. We think it's worth it for you!
All beds come freshly made with quality linen. We know you're on holiday, and we want you to help ensure it's as relaxing as possible.
If you would like the pool and/or spa heated for your stay, we can arrange this for you at an extra cost. Due to the large size of the pool, it takes 1.5 days to heat up to 28 degrees. The spa is quicker, and takes about 2 hours.
Pool & Spa heated costs - extra $130 per day
Spa only heated costs - extra $50 per day (10am-9pm)
Once a week, we have a pool cleaner and gardener come to do weekly maintenance. We do our best to schedule them around our guest visits, but if they arrive during your stay, we apologise for any inconvenience. We need to ensure the property is well maintained to ensure everything runs smoothly for all our guests.
** As mentioned in the description, all doors from the house open directly to the pool area. While the doors have child proof locks (and the rumpus room door and 3rd bedroom can be permanently locked) you need to be very mindful of this if you are part of a group with children who can not swim. **
No glass is allowed around the pool, and we provide lot's of outdoor plastic glasses for you to use.
We have lived in the area all our life, and know the neighbourhood and our neighbours very well. While we want our guests to have a great time, DO NOT HIRE our place if you plan to have a party or gathering beyond the number of guests booked.
Any breaking of this rule will immediately forfeit your deposit, and you will be asked to leave the premise immediately.
We're happy for people to have friends over for a lunch or dinner, but this must be pre-arranged with us in advance.
We have a very strict rule on extra people staying. Under no circumstances are extra people allowed to sleep on the couches.
On departure, we know the last thing you want to do is clean. All we ask is that you leave the house in a tidy manner and in the way you found it. All towels are to be left in the bathroom and everything put back the way you found it.
Finally, as we hope our reviews show, we're very reasonable hosts, and work very hard to ensure that the house always looks great for our our guests. Most of us don't get much time off during the year, so if you do choose to stay at our house, we want to make sure it's one of the best getaways you'll ever have!
Feel free to contact us with any questions at all.

My wife Megan and I love travelling and experiencing the sights, sounds, food and wine of other places!
I read on someones profile that they 'don't sweat the small stuff', and that certainly applies to us. We are very accommodating & we only ask that people treat our property with respect.
