You have little chance of wanting to make an early exit from Buckleys Escape in Sorrento. If anything, you’ll want to settle for an extended stay. The feeling is one of being truly hidden away, even though you’re close to some of the Mornington Peninsula’s most coveted holiday destinations.
Pets are welcome too with a fully secure rear yard and doggie basket with treats, ’poop’ bags, towel and bowls. Before you get ahead of yourself traipsing around the Peninsula, take time to get to know your lodgings.
Start by inspecting the open-plan lounge, dining and kitchen. With its floating wood floors, crisp white walls, rattan chairs and Hamptons-like styling, this space is beachy and fresh. Next up, poke your head inside the three bedrooms – making a mental note to buy your own linens in similar prints – before wandering outside again to stretch out in one of the white sunloungers. You’ll stay here until you need to reapply SPF 30+ or fire up the barbecue for dinner.
