Klein Bottle House - Architectural Gem
Klein Bottle House
Enjoy the prestige of vacationing in a true architectural marvel during your stay at the magnificent, award-winning Klein Bottle House. With three bedrooms, and sitting on 2600 square feet, this incredible structure is nestled in a secluded area and offers gorgeous vistas, along with excellent proximity to surfing beaches and trendy townships for you to explore!
Know for its experimental, geometric build, the Klein Bottle House offers an exceptional look at the marvels of modern architecture. The home has won countless awards for its innovative approach to design, including the Robin Boyd Award for Best House in Australia, and the Grand Designs Award for Best International House. The house revolves around a central courtyard, with a grand, regal staircase connecting all levels. The main living space is characterized by interesting spatial relationships, offering a sleek and modern style of décor that perfectly compliments the interesting angles and design. The minimal use of color, along with the pristine whites and blacks used in the layout and the furniture create stark contrasts and an elegant atmosphere. The kitchen is gourmet and outfitted with state of the art appliances, offering a clean, well-equipped space to whip up a delicious meal. After dinner, head out to one of two spacious sun decks to enjoy the sweeping views around you and the beautiful sunset.
As you wander up the central staircase, color becomes more prevalent in the vibrant red hue that covers the walls. The rooms in the upper level begin to mix this red color in with the blacks and whites, bringing more warmth to the rooms in which you’ll lay your heads at night. Three bedrooms are available for you to choose from, and multiple bed configurations are available if need be. The master offers a lavish queen-sized bed and opens up to a private deck where you can enjoy the sunset as you sip on a cool glass of Australian wine. Each room comes with access to a sleek, polished bathroom, each uniquely designed and offering resort-style comfort. Downstairs you’ll also find a cozy cinema room, which can be used as an extra sleeping space for the children, fitting up to three double beds.
Just over an hour from Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula is where all Melbournians hang out over the weekend, and your stunning vacation home offers amazing proximity to everything that makes this region so popular. Take a breathtaking, surfside walk starting right at your front door, sprawling over 200 meters of natural sand dunes and culminating in spectacularly wild surf beach (only suitable for experienced surfers). If surfing isn’t your style, just ten minutes away you’ll find a beautiful bay beach, perfect for swimming and other forms of water sports. Around the beach, you’ll find numerous trendy shops, markets, and delicious restaurants to explore. Venture a little farther away from your home away from home, and you’ll find yourself surrounded by some of Australia’s best golf courses, along with superb wineries that offer a great spot for lunch while overlooking the vineyard. Scuba dive, take a bike ride, visit historic Point Nepean, or the trendy town of Sorrento for breakfast and shopping. With so much activity surrounding you, there will never be a dull moment!
With its experimental design and gorgeous layout, the Klein Bottle House offers a sensational twist on the modern vacation home. Book your stay today!

Stunning Beach House in the Teetree
How fortunate were we to be able to stay at the Klein Bottle house in the year of the coronavirus pandemic. It is truly a spectacular house adjacent to a national park and a stunning (but unsafe for swimming) beach. It is about a 90 minute drive from Melbourne Airport and there are many attractiions in the region. Communication with the hosts was easy and the house was most welcoming - complete with a beautifully illuminated Christmas tree!”
NOT JUST A HOME, AN EXPERIENCE!
The Klein Bottle House is the most serene home that we have ever experienced. The peninsula is fascinating to explore, and yet it was always a treat to go "home". Mark was a perfect host, as was the home. It is on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and is surrounded by wonderful Ti Trees with constant bird songs. The architecture of the house is a genius creation and added even more to the entertaining stay.”
Klein Bottle House
We had a lovely stay at Rye. The house was amazing and very well appointed. There is also so much to do in the area - walks, wineries and golf in particular!”
Great Ocean paradise Home
Amazing house nestled in middle of Rye Ocean Beach only 100 steps away from a lonely, virgin and powerful beach. Surrounded by stunning nature in a quiet neighborhood. It is an architectural master piece, superb. Comfortable, spacious and full of places to relax. It’s a house that invites you to enjoy itself, its sourroundings and south Melbourne. Thank you Mark for sharing your "Little Great Paradise" with us! We loved it.”
Klein Bottle House
Mark was superb in looking after us, both during the "booking" process and once we arrived. This extraordinary house is not only unique in its architecture, but it's brilliantly located and very comfortable to live in. Very few houses have all the big things you expect, but also the "little" (but important) things like sharp knives, good saucepans, an excellent BBQ and even bathroom scales that weighed a kilo or two light! We had a really great time there and can recommend it most highly.”
