Running away with Goldilocks and The Three Bears

March 28, 2018

...Running to Red Hill, that is. I did exactly that last week on a sunny Friday afternoon, and am so pleased to share this amazing location with you all. Nestled amongst the trees on a quiet dirt road within the rolling hills of, yep you guessed it- Red Hill, sits the stunning "Goldilocks Cottage"- the home of your next 'Peninsula Lifestyle' Experience. Enjoy all the ninch has to offer, including our calm bay beaches only a short drive away, the back-beach surf, beautiful wineries, popular hiking spots, and buzzing wine and dining locations- all at the doorstep of this unique holiday location, which is just awaiting your tender booking! Whether you are after a weekend getaway from the big smoke, some r&r with your lover, a weekend of winery visits or for a special occasion such as a hens weekend or birthday- although every day is a day to celebrate if I we are going to be honest here- then this is the place for you. I promise.


When I visited this gorgeous location on Friday I was overcome with a sense of appreciation for a simpler life. Sometimes the chaos of our work and social lives, the never-ending bills and weekly grind can overcome us, and make us forget the small things- the things that make us happy. Sitting on just under four acres of luscious countryside land, Goldilocks Cottage forces you to remember, relax and rejuvenate. From the quirky three-bedroom cottage, the expansive decking with a private courtyard- which is pet friendly, can I get a yesssss!-, accessibility to the entire property including the kids old-school playground, the wooden cubby house (which was built to resemble a chapel and actually used in a wedding ceremony!), to the large field perfect for a kick of the football- your every need is catered for.


This unique residence also just oooooozes character (yep, that many o's), and makes for a great photograph and story to relay to your friends and family. I would highly recommend taking a few snaps by the "Dr Zeus" tree located at the left of the front door, the large wooden lounge chair with branch horns in the yard (how many times have you heard that line before? Yeah... me either), or even simply against the walls within the cottage, each painted with unique cross brush strokes. To further enrich your experience, ask your humble hosts about the history of the property while sharing your complementary bottle of wine from a local winery and nibbling on your olives- it makes everything that much more special!




And yes I know that although we may be well on our way into Autumn, and very soon, Winter- where has the bloody time gone!?- Goldilocks cottage offers lifestyle saturated experience no matter the weather. So if you're reading this thinking "It's cold and nothing is fun and I am going to eat three blocks of chocolate a night and go into hibernation" I am here to snatch that choccie away from you- Rain hail or shine, comfort is a given. For the cooler months, you can stay warm by the wood fire, or even visit the many peninsula locations for a wine tasting by their very own fires too- don't worry I have a winter bible listing these places to visit currently in the making for you all. And anyway, let's be real- winter is for wine, and therefore- Goldilocks Cottage is your next destination for 2018. I mean, come on- when you're just a short walk to the heart of Red Hill, including the likes of The Epicurean and The Long Table, you really can't go wrong with this home away from home. I really could go on listing all the places you could visit, but I've gotta leave some of the planning to you too, right? SO, get your goldilocks on, round up your three bears- whether that be your friends or family, and book this unique peninsula accomodation today- that is, if I haven't already booked it...


Stay Tuned for my photo blog which shows you every stunning inch of this lovely accomodation- if my computer decides to work with me for once.... Life, right!?
