Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

The ideal accommodation for a group stay on the Morningtob Peninsula
We have just completed our stay at Moonah Ridge on the beach. The place sleeps 16, but it didn't feel too big with a group our group of 10. The venue is perfect. With stunning views from all aspects, BBQ facilities, mineral baths, a massive spa, theatre room, table tennis and pool tables, we were almost tempted not to leave the accommodation during our trip to the peninsula. That said, it was an incredibly convenient location for us to get to cafes/restaurants, hikes, wineries, St Andrews Beach Brewery and eninsula hotsprings. The owner was also very pleasant to engage with. She ensured that our priorities came first, providing detailed information about the venue and even checking what temperature we wanted the spa set at for our arrival. TLDR: Moonah Ridge should be your choice of accommodation for your group's stay on the Mornington Peninsula.

Stunning
Moonah Ridge was amazing! The house was spacious and beautifully set up, with stunning views of the ocean. There are enough beds for large groups and multiple entertainment areas throughout the house. Jane was a great host and always prompt when replying to messages. I can’t wait to come back soon!

Glorious Mornington location
Moonah Ridge was a fantastic option for a weekend group getaway. It's a beautiful location - on the hill with amazing views out to the ocean and inland - 10 minutes walk from the beach. The house is huge with plenty of spaces to hang out. We were there in winter so the fireplace and outdoor spa were both much appreciated! Special mention though to the two outdoor mineral baths - these were amazing to relax in in the late afternoon.

Spacious, relaxing, excellent location
This lovely home was fitted with ample space to fit our huge family reunion, from Grandma to 4 year old nieces! Thoughtfully provided with all kitchen essentials we needed, a pool and ping pong table, home theatre, mineral springs baths and a short walk to a beautiful stretch of beach meant there was always something for everyone. Rooftop views are stunning. Location is perfect as it was secluded enough to be away from the noise, but only a10 min drive to Rye for supplies. Thank you Jane, we loved the house and will definitely return.

Fabulous house for large gathering
We stayed for a week over Christmas 2019 as a family of 10 adults and 4 children. Moonah Ridge is a wonderful house for families to enjoy without being on top of each other with 3 living areas everyone had plenty of space. The Table Tennis table and the Pool table provided many a competition over the week. The location is amazing with incredible views over the country from one side and the ocean from the other. Another bonus for us was it is dog friendly accommodation which allowed us to enjoy family time with them as well. The beach is beautiful, unsuitable for the young children, and as it is a national park - no dogs but with that aside, if you surf it will be amazing. So much to do in the area - wineries, other swim beaches, a brewery, Arthur's Seat, The Enchanted Adventure Garden and so much more. Close to Rye, Sorrento and Rosebud - but St Andrews is a quiet little seaside village, so if peace and quiet is your desire you don't need to move. The house was lovely, the hot tub and 2 x artesian bathes were amazing. Totally recommend Moonah Ridge, we would book again! Thanks Jane & Mark for allowing us to stay

Perfect location for weekend
The house is perfectly located close to the Peninsula's golf courses. We were down there for a golf weekend and the house comfortably slept our group of 8 with the Dunes and St Andrews Beach golf clubs within 5 minutes drive. The house has incredible views and great facilities. From the deck with BBQ's allowing you to watch the sunset, to the pool table and table tennis table. And the heated spa was a wonderful bonus after a long day of golf.

Fantastic
Fantastic accommodation for a family get together. There was plenty of room, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped to cater for a crowd and the views from nearly every room was spectacular. The outdoor baths were well used as was the spa on the particularly cold and wintry weekend weekend that we were there. I would thoroughly recommend this accommodation.

I am so pleased to hear that you had such an enjoyable stay at Moonahridge. You have experienced a great winter getaway, hoping you stay again, maybe next time it could be a summer experience. The Mornington Peninsula really does have so much to offer both winter and summer
