Bed & Breakfasts

Maguires Real Estate specialises in the sale of holiday accommodation properties and businesses which go under various names including bed & breakfast, holiday homes, resorts, retreats, lodges, cottages, guest houses, country houses and villas.

A Bed & Breakfast can be simply a house with in-house bedrooms for guests with or without a separate entrance, independent cottages on the owner's property or a combination of the two. For the sake of simplicity this section will refer to all short-term accommodation types as B&Bs, whether or not breakfast is offered as part of the price.
Quality B&Bs have been popular in Victoria for many years as a venue for escape, romance and relaxation for both couples and families. Tourism authorities in the Dandenongs and the Yarra Valley, for example, have at least 150 properties listed and they estimate there could be 50-100 properties operating unofficially as holiday homes.

A similar situation has been developing on the Mornington Peninsula in recent years. Famed for its beaches, wineries, shops, spas, markets and rural ambience the Peninsula has always been known as a destination for holiday makers. Now, with the advent of transport connections such as Eastlink and Peninsula Link, more people are heading for the Peninsula for midweek and weekend stays in all seasons. The former image of the Peninsula as a summer holiday spot is changing to an all year round luxury escape.

Previous to establishing Maguires Real Estate, the owners, Alan and Winnie Maguire, owned and operated several different B&Bs in the Dandenong Ranges, including Gumbirra and Belvedere Bed and Breakfast. When they decided they were ready to sell and make our their seachange (to the Mornington Peninsula) they faced difficulties finding an agent to list their B&B properties as a business instead of just a normal residence. Other owners of B&Bs have also expressed that they have had similar difficulties. Buyers of B&Bs have also complained of not being able to find a central place to locate and compare listings of B&Bs for sale. This website provides a way for buyers and sellers of B&Bs to meet in the middle with expert help from a former B&B operator to facilitate the sale and handover.
