Coastal holiday home building tips

If the Mornington Peninsula is where you’d like to build your holiday home, consider the following:

1.  Consider your future tenants

Consider your tenant clientele.  Families, couples, large groups – all have different needs.  As a general rule, low maintenance furnishings and gardens are best and take advantage of views and northerly aspects of your home.

Beach house builders mornington peninsula will consider an outdoor shower or wet room after a day hitting the waves.  An adult’s retreat can be enjoyed by couples or parents escaping the kidlets.  Maximise your holiday home with practical and functional aspects that make your tenants feal at ease.

2.  Maximise your bedrooms

Holidays are often shared with family and friends.  If possible, design a holiday home that can sleep two or more families.  The master bedroom should include a king size bed, additional bedrooms with queen and/or bunk beds.  Pull out sofa beds are also a practical way to maximise on bedding.

3.  Add luxury to comfort

When on holidays, we want to relax in style.  Some basic luxuries include air-conditioning, dishwasher and modern appliances.  For added appeal add a spa or pool, alfresco dining and BBQ on the deck.  Ensure your coastal holiday home can still be enjoyed in colder months by adding a fireplace in front of your view, cosy reading nook or deep freestanding bathtub. I know I feel relaxed.

4.  Style your space 

When styling your holiday home, creating a restful space is key. Maintain a clutter free interior, with some homy feels; perhaps add some magazines or put some books on display.

Keep all fabrics and colours fresh, neutral and simple.  Splashes of colour can be incorporated with soft furnishings and artwork. Comfy furniture inside and out is a must.  Native gardens will encourage bird life to your property adding to the ambiance.

5.  Choose the right builder

Choose a custom builder who knows the location well that uses quality durable products that withstand elements of a coastal home.  A holiday home needs to be low maintenance so choose a builder that understands your needs.

Whether your home has a beachfront location or sits high on a hill with ocean views, a coastal holiday home is a rewarding investment and retreat to enjoy and share.
