Host Info

Host Review Score

Benambra Queenscliff and Cottage are located in the heart of Queenscliff, a pretty seaside village on the Bellarine peninsular and about 2 hours from Melbourne. Queenscliff is surrounded by water on 3 sides and is at the entrance of Port Phillip Bay. Benambra has been providing comfortable accommodation to visitors since 1883 to people from all over the world. If you enjoy that small boutique experience with modern day comforts, Benambra has it all. An easy stroll to shops, restaurants, beach, ferry, marina , train station and more. Start your day with breakfast at several nearby cafes.
Geoff and Anne have been welcoming guests to Benambra since 2004. Many guests return regularly and even have a favourite room. Sharing people's stories is a wonderful privilege when hosting, and we have been part of many people's special moments including engagements, weddings, birthdays, and anniversaries. We love sharing our unique home and beautiful surroundings with the world.
Imagine walking along golden sand with the waves lapping at your toes, small fishing boats bobbing off shore, seagulls calling as the soar above and all you have to decide is which restaurant to have dinner at or what to do tomorrow - swim with the Dolphins, go fishing, have a massage, visit a winery . go shopping, catch the ferry across the bay , go sailing , laze around on the beach, visit an art gallery or learn more about Queenscliff's history by visiting the museum . Ship watching at the heads is also another relaxing past-time. Do as much or as little - the choice is all yours.
