The information provided was amazing made the stay go with complete ease. No hidden expectations from either side & great advice about the area. Every question answered promptly & in a super friendly manner. We enjoyed our stay immensely, thanks Bob and extra special thanks Deb.
Hey! Thank you lovely!!!! It was just wonderful sharing the property with you!!!!!! You are welcome back anytime!!!
Beautiful, quiet setting and great venue for large groups.
We had an excellent stay here, the host was great at communicating and the property exceeded expectations. It is absolutely beautiful and the living spaces open up into the natural beauty outside. It is fully equipped with cooking & catering utensils, appliances, crockery etc.
plenty of space for many people to spread out and relax or come together.
Definitely recommend for large, quiet groups.
We stayed as a group of 16 and were very comfortable. The house was lovely, but we didn't spend much time in because it was hard to resist the beautiful backyard on this property! Bob and Deb were wonderful hosts throughout the entire booking and stay process. 100% recommend to anyone wanting a quiet getaway down at the peninsula!
Fantastic birthday weekend!!!
The property is just wonderful. Higgeldy-piggeldy layout, eccentric interior, and all the things you need. The garden is spectacular, and we hugely enjoyed hanging out in the hot tub and cooking with the bbq on the deck. Close to shops for all supplies (beautiful breads from Red Hill Bakery and high-quality meats from Balnarring Village Meats). Beautiful walks and beaches nearby. Deb was a great host – all the info and communication at a text away. Would highly recommend. Thanks for helping my 30th be such a success!
Absolutely loved our stay at the Balnarring eco bush retreat. Beautiful scenery and family friendly
The property is fantastic for large groups of people, particularly with children. It’s surrounded by magnificent green forest and views of the paddocks. Very impressed with the environmentally friendly options including a worm farm. Very easy to book and Deb was excellent from start to finish around all the communication required for the trip. We will definitely be back!

About Deb Heaysman
I am a film maker and writer. I lived on this road at the Merricks North end in the 1970s and have always loved the area. Over the past 12 years I have been able to make the property more aligned with my values. It is now insulated on every face including the north facing windows which used to make the house very hot in summer and freezing in winter. In the spa this afternoon it was nice to know that the steaming water had been heated by the sun (solar panels on the roof) and the heat exchange which takes in air and converts it to heat.
Deb Heaysman purchased this House in 2007
Why Deb Heaysman chose Balnarring
I loved this property at first sight and hope you will too. The balance of architecture and nature are calming and make for a perfect environment for peaceful, creative and private retreats.
What makes this House unique
Walking around the house always makes me smile as there are little touches and secret spots I hope you will find and enjoy. There is a large "meditation" rock on the western side of the house looks at the green wall that is constructed from five different varietals of jasmine which flowers throughout the year and apart from the lovely aromas it also contributes to the insulation of the house. For a more expansive description of the gardens see the separate section written by landscape architect Jenny Toy from ReJeneration. Jenny is an expert in indigenous plants and is aware of the difference between native and indigenous. She also lives in this locality.
