How are we different?

There are many websites out there that tout themselves as providing a guide to beach or coastal accommodation. In reality, some of the properties they showcase are many kilometres from the beach and are simply not within a short walking distance, thus requiring transport.

At Beach Stays, we are different. Every property displayed is located no more than 500 metres walk from the coast. That means to get to the beach, it's just a short stroll or a few seconds in a vehicle.

After all, when planning a stay along the coast, the location is one of your main considerations!

Can I list my property on Beach Stays?

Only properties located within 500 metres walk of the beach or coast, as per the location and measurement criteria can be listed on Beach Stays.

If your property satisfies these criteria, and is located in the Australian state of Victoria, then please proceed to our advertising page.

The Beach Stays story

In May 2011, the Beach Stays website was officially launched, featuring a diverse collection of accommodation properties in Victoria, all located within 500 metres walk of the beach or coast.

In September 2017, the Beach Stays website was redesigned with a contemporary theme that provided better support for viewing on mobile devices.
