WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

Holiday Shacks® is a luxury holiday accommodation business which was first established in 2008 to offer guests and owners alike a personalised end-to-end managed service.

Located across Victoria’s beautiful southeast coast from Bayside Melbourne to Portsea, our properties are hand-picked luxury and unique retreats, designed to offer our guests the finest Mornington Peninsula Accommodation and bespoke experiences. Holiday Shacks® is a term given to Australian holiday houses over a century ago. “The Shack” as it was soon referred to, soon became the treasured iconic symbol of an Australian holiday house.

First designed as rustic shacks which mainly appeared by popular holiday beaches or remote riverside banks, they were often built with no formal planning regulations, usually furnished with the family’s odds and ends and given a hand-painted name as the final finishing touch. In the 1940s, Shack licenses were issued to the public and the rustic Holiday Shack began to be transformed into a special place to stay with the little extras.

In Victoria, the Mornington Peninsula began the trend for more up-market holiday houses, beginning in Sorrento, the site of Victoria’s first European settlement in 1803 at Sullivan Bay. Sorrento and then Portsea fast became the established playground of the holidaying rich and famous showcased by the magnificent holiday mansions, which today remain along the southern shorelines.

In recent years, development and growth on the Mornington Peninsula has seen the emergence of luxury coastal and rural holiday homes. It has been our privilege and honour to assist with the promotion of our industry sector and to be able to offer our guests the very best holiday rental and short-term accommodation on the Mornington Peninsula highlighted today by the Holiday Shacks® premium property portfolio.
