About this listing
Our beach shack is perfect for an easy-going, relaxed time away. Smiths Beach has a really chilled feel to it - safe and easy for families, local cafe/shop in walking distance, beach only a few minutes walk away and surf shop nearby.
This very relaxed beach house has 3 bedrooms, a large open plan living space and a big grassy backyard.
It is located a 5 minute walk from Smiths Beach on the south side of the island. It's about a 10 minute drive from the main town of Cowes on the island. The house is also a 5 minute drive from the Grand Prix track.
There are 3 bedrooms, sleeping 7 people:
Bedroom 1 – 1 x Queen Bed
Bedroom 2 – 1 x Queen Bed
Bedroom 3 – 1 x Bunk Bed, 1 x Single Bed
Living area: Couches, TV, DVD player, VCR, iPod/CD player and gas heating.
Kitchen: microwave, fridge, gas oven and cooktop.

Outside: covered carport, gas BBQ and outdoor seating.
Tenants are required to provide their own linen and towels. Pillows, doonas and plenty of blankets are supplied for each bed.
Remember, this is a proper much-loved family beach shack and has a very 'no frills' feel to it. So feel free to chill out, relax and treat it as you would your own home!
Interaction with Guests
We won't be at the house for your stay but we live nearby some of the time so are sometimes available if needed.
We have a great cafe / general store in Smiths Beach with some of the best coffee on the island. It's also handy to be able to pick up basic groceries from here or grab some fish & chips and a dimmy.
The iconic 'Island Surf Shop' is also in Smiths Beach. They have surfing lessons available most of the year and access to hire surf boards.
The beach itself at Smith's is fantastic and one of the best on the island. It is known as both a great, safe family beach and pretty good surfing spot too. It's patrolled most of summer.
It's best that you have a car when you are in Phillip Island so that you can drive into the town of Cowes (10 mins from the house) or to the national parks on the island.
Other Things to Note
We supply some complimentary toilet paper but it may not always be enough for your stay depending on the length of stay and number of guests. You may be expected to buy your own.
We do not supply linen or towels for the house - so please bring these with you for your stay.
We do not supply breakfast. However, some basic tea, coffee and other cooking supplies are at the house. Feel free to use anything you find in the pantry!
Please, no parties, no schoolies and no smoking inside.
About the Host, Anna
I live in Melbourne but love to travel as much as possible throughout the year. When I'm at home I often share my city house with travellers and enjoy showing people around my city and surrounds. I also have two family beach houses in Phillip Island, Victoria to offer travellers as well.
