About

Just 90 minutes from the Melbourne CBD, Clifftop began its life as a family home that grew into a unique and inviting retreat. Its location is exceptional, with views over the ever-changing waters of Smiths Beach and Bass Strait on one side, and on the other, beautiful rolling farmland.

Resting in a hollow surrounded by native vegetation Clifftop not only offers magical scenic views, visitors will be thrilled at the wildlife that  makes its home in this beautiful spot.

The building itself harks back to the grand days of the seaside holidays. Its new owners, mother and daughter team Helen and Rachel Dafner,  are carefully working, with the support of their families, to create an ambiance of timeless elegance where you feel you are being welcomed by old friends.

With eight beautifully appointed rooms, each with its own feel and features and a warm, inviting common room with a stocked alcohol and coffee bar, Clifftop can provide all the privacy required for a romantic weekend or the space to enjoy a reunion with family and friends.

As part of Clifftops new incarnation we have planted a kitchen garden and will soon be pleased to offer home grown breakfasts, and suppers from local produce.  We also have the capacity to cater for evening meals for group bookings, providing either home cooked meals or elegant catered dinner parties.
