Stunning rural & bay views, contemporary design, pristine bushland with an enchanting lake!
Bookings are open to all families and groups over 27yrs old.
Set in rolling countryside with panoramic views across Pt Phillip Bay, this newly renovated retreat is breathtaking and tranquil.
The architecturally designed farmhouse and adjacent cottages have a relaxed contemporary feel and are beautifully presented. All three dwellings are set in a native garden surrounded by magnificent exotic trees. The farm is a nature lovers haven, offering over 100 species of birds, kangaroos, wallabies, and numerous walks through the bush and wetlands. On warm days, guests can cool off in the lake or relax on the pontoon which is positioned 700m to the North East of the main buildings.
Centrally located between Dromana, Merricks, and Red Hill, Red Hill Ridge is an ideal base for exploring the Peninsula.
An amazing setting offering stunning views designed to capture the light and capitalise on the magnificent setting. The floor to ceiling glass windows and soaring roofline give the dining-kitchen zone real drama and style. A cutting-edge kitchen with European appliances is well equipped for long, lazy gatherings. The lounge area with its comfy lounges, banquette seating, and wood-burning fire has a relaxed comfortable feel just perfect for curling up with a glass of red. The adjacent terrace is complete with an outdoor dining setting that can accommodate up to 14 guests, a barbecue, and a million-dollar view. Simply breathtaking!
The Farmhouse sleeps up to 8 guests across three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a Queen Size bed and a stunning modern en-suite bathroom. Bedroom 2 consists of 2 x King-Single beds and can be set up as a King bed if required. Bedroom 3 consists of 4 x Single beds. A modern and sleekly designed central bathroom is again absolutely stunning.
Sophisticated and spacious, with quality soft furnishings this cottage is tranquil and stylish. Fully self-contained, it offers a well-equipped new kitchen, complete with oven, dishwasher and induction cooktop. A Queen size bed is separated from the living zone, providing a relaxing, private retreat. Adjacent a very spacious ensuite that is cleverly designed for any guests requiring assistance with a safety rail. The gorgeous living zone once again brings the outside in. Vaulted ceilings, large couch, and easy chair, table setting for 4 guests, TV, and an ottoman which can be used as a single bed if required for an additional child, makes this a versatile space.
An outdoor terrace with a table and 4 chairs is absolutely ideal for taking in the majestic landscape. The perfect setting to kick back and start your day with a long lazy breakfast.
PLEASE NOTE: THE DAIRY IS NOT ACCESSIBLE FOR BOOKINGS FOR LESS THAN 12 GUESTS, HOWEVER CAN BE MADE AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST FOR AN ADDITIONAL $75 PER PERSON, PER NIGHT. FOR GROUPS OF 12-14 GUESTS, THE DAIRY MUST BE BOOKED FOR THE ADDITIONAL FEE
Originally the old dairy, hence the name, has also been transformed into another fully self-contained cottage with a separate bedroom including a Queen Size bed. Again, it is obvious that this space has been architecturally designed. It includes a kitchenette, stunning en-suite bathroom, and spacious living area, tastefully furnished and offering a single trundle that can accommodate a child if need be. The entrance deck features an outdoor setting, ideal for watching the sunset on the bay in the distance.
Red Hill Ridge is truly a unique property delivering the best of both worlds. Total seclusion and tranquility yet only a few minutes’ drive to the Peninsula’s many beaches, cafes, wineries, restaurants, galleries, markets, spas, local artisans, and nature reserves.
This will suit the most discerning travellers and guarantee your stay will be a memorable one.
The property has a lake, therefore supervision is required for guests with small children. While the lake is accessible by car, it can get very slippery in winter, so it is recommended that you walk down during the wetter months.
Please note there are several CCTV cameras at the property. However, they are for surveillance purposes, when the property is vacant, only. Therefore, these will NOT be switched on during your stay.

This is a beautiful house!Gary
Set on a lovely spacious property. There is a beautiful outlook from the main living space, very peaceful and tranquil setting. The responses to all our questions were quick and friendly and the service provided from Verve Vacation Rentals for our stay was at the highest of standards. The separate cottages and dairy allowed for space for the couples of our group, this is great for families. I would highly recommend staying at this property if you are looking for a getaway down the Mornington Peninsula.
Family short stayBarb
This is a wonderful property. Everything we needed was available. The weather was perfect and we were able to explore this vast property. The accommodation was very comfortable and offered plenty of natural light. The appliances were good quality and in good working order. The cleanliness was as we would expect.... immaculate. We have had a fantastic long weekend and will be sad to leave this beautiful space.
Easy access to wineries and towns to visit. Loved waking up to see the kangaroos and cockatoos. Spent the late afternoons on the terrace with a glass of wine watching the sunset over the bay - Amazing!
Brilliant for kids and multiple families!Jason
Fantastic home, brilliant for kids and multiple families. We will be back!
We had the most incredible booking experience with Verve. We had some special requests and they were much more accommodating to our needs, plus they were able to provide extras such as a cot and highchair for our baby. Could not recommend highly enough! The property had everything you could wish for, including extra towels, blankets, heating and air-conditioning, plenty of seating it was fabulous. Worth every penny!
A really beautiful property!EmmaKate
A really beautiful property - we're grateful to have called this place home away from home during our wedding weekend. Thank you Verve!
To have four generations under one roof (in this case three roofs) and for it to work so beautifully, was wonderful. Highly recommend this venue as the perfect haven to satisfy a range of preferences.
Amazing space, very clean, great communication! Thank you so much for an amazing weekend!
We LOVED every minute!Neesha
We have LOVED every minute of our stay, we don't want to leave!! Thank you so much for making our wedding weekend extra special and unforgettable!
Amazing place and fantastic location!Nickolas
Great facilities! Three cottages, all set off to allow for privacy, but easily located for guests convenience. The cows provided amusement and education for the younger kids, with the access to Vineyards providing entertainment for the adults.
Amazing property with stunning views!Darcee
Amazing property with stunning views. We could not have asked for a better family weekend away!
An absolute dream to stay at!Jacqui
Red Hill Ridge was an absolute dream to stay at. What a gorgeous house (houses!) on beautiful rolling hills. The place was extremely clean and well presented with everything you could ever need for a weekend stay. From a stocked fridge to plenty of crockery and glasses, bathroom amenities and even some local wine and groceries to make dinner. The perfect place to bring a group of friends and family. Will definitely be back and many of our group said the same! Thanks Miranda and the team for all the quick communication, much appreciated.
The accommodation was in a superb location - beautiful Vista and well appointed property. Extremely easy to use fireplace that made the stay all the more comfortable. Very comfortable beds. For an executive retreat there was ample room.
Many wonderful touches!Antoinette
We had a fantastic time at Red Hill Ridge and didn't want to leave. The location was simply stunning and the configuration with the main home and two separate cottageswas perfect for our group of six adults. There were many wonderful touches that made our stay enjoyable - super comfortable bedding, beautifully appointed bathrooms, blankets/rugs so we could sit outside into the evening, good selection of condiments on hand, cosy fireplace for the cooler evenings - everything you would expect from a property of this calibre. The only minor challenge we experienced was streaming music through the AV system: in the end, we used our own bluetooth speaker. We wouldn't hesitate in returning or recommending this property.
Perfect location. Heaps of room for a big group, we really enjoyed it. Thanks for the stay. It was amazing!
This property is absolutely stunning, the views included. Would have loved to stay longer!
This is a stunning property for a group or several families to base themselves as you explore Red Hill and the Mornington Peninsula. The accommodation was very stylish, yet cosy for the winter weather, and the views were spectacular. We had three generations staying - from three months old through to 78 years old - and everyone loved it. Would highly recommend
Stunning views of the country meeting the ocean!Claire
A gorgeous property with SO much space and stunning views of the country meeting the ocean. Amazing amenities, beautiful fireplace and heaps of lush grass for kids (and adults) to run around and play lawn games. Beautiful walks through the paddocks down to the lake, lots of cows and wildlife to spot. Simply stunning! Highly recommend a stay at this property.
A joy to be here!Pamela
Wonderful place, relaxed, extremely comfortable living area with clean and modern appliances, sofas you sink into, and a fire that keeps it warm and cosy. You can relax on the sofa and take in the beautiful view across pastures to the tranquil bay, and watch the yachts sauntering by - or turn to the native trees, smell the fresh, clean eucalyptus air and listed to the magnificent birdsong. The beds were extremely comfortable, clean and warm. The bathrooms are new and spotlessly clean, beautifully designed. The paintings, prints, books and magazines have been selected with care and great thought. There is something to interest or entrance everyone. And a huge television. It is a joy to be here, the path to the dam is an easy and peaceful walk through native bush land. The kitchen was modern, well appointed and easy to use, good quality tea and coffee was provided. Lovely dining area that looks out on fields and the sea. My friends and I relaxed immediately, you can feel the love and care that has gone into every aspect of Red Hill Ridge. Can't wait to come again.
The property was beautifully presented. Everything you would ever need was in the kitchen. Even baking trays. Each house/cottage was very comfortable. It was the perfect layout for the 11 of us. Everyone had space to spread out. The property managers were very helpful and also replied very quickly to any questions.
Let’s start by saying the place was spotless. Everything was beautiful, the outlook, the interior design, each of the houses. The kitchen was let stocked with basics and very thoughtful treats. The 3 houses meant that we were never on top of each other, there was 11 of us. The property managers were very responsive to any messages, even emailing me back in a Sunday evening.
Incredible Stay!Francis Ferrie
We stayed at Red Hill Ridge over the weekend, and I just want to personally pass on a message to the owners about our incredible stay. Whilst the weather was not on our side, the beauty and serenity of the property made up for the wind and rain. The magnificent view from the floor to ceiling glass, the meandering gardens filled with herbs, natives, veggies and a lime tree dripping with fruit, were enchanting. We loved our walks, the pontoons, sitting by the fire and...the books!
Highly recommend, if you want a country farm feel with all the amenities than this is the place to go.
Beautifully designed and maintained property on a massive block that we didn't have time to fully explore!!
Magical weekend on the Mornington PeninsulaKevin De Almeida
Our stay at Red Hill Ridge was fantastic. The perfect property for a large group to enjoy a relaxing long weekend away! The property is a tranquil oasis with the most delightful surrounds. With a gourmet kitchen and plenty of seating inside and outside, it was the perfect get away for entertaining and socialising as a large group - and large enough to have separate spaces for quiet times away from the group especially having booked the brilliant cottages in addition to the main house!
Fantastic Property!Harry & Monica Kempler
Thanks so much! It’s a fantastic property, well equipped, easy, architecturally lovely and such beautiful views. Great books too!
