Just a 5 minute walk to Surf Beach, this clean, sunny, fully equipped house is a great for family or friends to get together for a seaside get away. Campfire under the stars, long walks on the beach or cycle the bike track to Cowes or San Remo.
It's an old house, but with new fittings and new hot water service. A short stroll to the end of the road takes you to a really beautiful surf beach, with lots of rock pools for the kids to explore. This area is one of natures finest and the lovely quiet neighborhood offers a perfect city break. The surf beach general store is also close by and stocks everything you need. I also have a couple of spare bikes and helmets which are available for guests to use, which is a nice way to explore the area.
1 room has 1 double bed & 2 single bunks (sleeps 4), another room has a queen size bed and one more room has a double bed (slightly smaller than standard double) but still big enough to sleep 2. There is also a very comfortable couch.
The owner lives in a Bungalow out the back & may or may not be there while you stay. Privacy of guests will be respected at all times, however you are always welcome to drop by to ask questions.
Phillip Island is a delight for nature lovers, with it's wildlife and beautiful beaches. Surf beach is central to all areas of the island and is just a 10 minute drive away from the greatest attraction on the island, the Penguin Parade. The Koala Conservation Centre is just a couple of kilometers down the road and the shearwaters are nesting in the dunes down the end of the street.
Phillip Island is also a mecca for motorcycle enthusiasts as the venue for Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix.
These web sites are a great resource for finding out more about everything the Island has to offer.
The v-line bus stops at the general store, just 5 minute walk away and runs to /from Spencer St in the city.
There is also a regular bus service running from Wonthaggi to the island
Please note that my kitchen does not come equipped with an oven. It does have all other cooking facilities that you may need, 4 electric hotplates, microwave, bbq etc. If you want to bake, grill or roast, please let me know in advance as I have a portable oven in my bungalow which I am happy to leave in the house if you need.
** I have WIFI in my bungalow out the back and the reception is usually ok in the house, however sometimes the signal is not strong enough to reach all rooms. If you need wifi, please let me know in advance and I may be able to put the modem inside the house. Note that we are limited to ADSL2 which can be quite slow at times. Telstra connection really slows down when there are many people on the island
Stacey was really kind and friendly and helped us with tips of what to do in the area. We got to see her fantastic paintings in her studio and share a drink around the firepit in the back garden.
My boys and I sadly, because of delays with our flights were only able to stay 1 of the 2 nights that we booked :(
It was a lovely home with fabulous access to the beach.
Stacey supplied us with boogie boards and a surfboard to play in the waves.
Stacey was kind enough to drive us to Cowes for a little look and then also to the Penguin Parade, which is a MUST if you go the Phillip Island!!
The beds were very comfortable and we slept like logs after 30 hours of traveling.
Stacey even brought us some cereal and other breakfast fixin's in the morning which was unexpected and lovely.
The WiFi was intermittent, but when it did work, it was great.
Stacey was an excellent host and we would most certainly stay there again!
This place is an absolute gem! We were so pleased with everything’s. we wished we had more time to stay longer. House provide excellent accommodation for our family. It is well equipped self-contained house for very good value. Host was very helpful providing information on the local slight and activates.
Thanks for sharing your lovely place with us. It was situated on a peaceful street, had all the amenities and was very clean and homely. I'll definitely come back the next time I'm here.
The Beach House was fabulous - exactly as described, very clean and Stacey went out of her way to ensure that it was available for us, despite being away at the time.
Really appreciated the helpful attitude and the advice about the penguins! I was only disappointed we couldn't stay a few more days!
Can't wait for an excuse to stay again! Highly recommended.
Stacey is a really great host and the place she offers is really lovely. We had requested for sheets for all our beds and they came nice, clean and comfortable.
The house is equipped with a toaster and induction cooking pad which our family used to make a simple breakfast. The windows can be a little old and may have difficulty getting locked, but overall it is a quaint, pretty place for our family to connect again.
Thanks for having us Stacey!
Stacys Place is the best spot to explore Philipps Island. Had a tremendous stay at her place. As Stacy is working with the Penguins Association she was the perfect guide for the best place to watch the parade. Wished to had more time to spent on Philipps Island. Will come back on day for sure.
Very lovely and warm house. Very close to the beach. The host even provide us some food for breakfast. Strongly recommended...
Great Stay at Stacey's!
We would highly recommend the chilled out, comfortable, clean, convenient house by the beach. It was exactly as stated, and exactly what our two boys, my wife and I were looking for..... The local beach suited my 12 and 15 YO boys who 'bogie boarded' for two days straight.....Played dictionary, explored the Island, cooked marsh-mellows, had a pub meal, went to the night market, and beached every day......What more could I say! THANKS!
Stacey was attentive, quick to respond, easy to communicate with, and very friendly. She was clear in her expectations and quite helpful in explaining the details of her home.
We thoroughly enjoyed the layout of the home…3bdrms/1bath, kitchen, and open dining/living room. It is efficient and cozy…a perfect beach bungalow. We have a family of 7, and the arrangement of beds/bunks made accommodations comfortable.
Surf Beach was beautiful and easy to access. The location of the home is ideal for all Phillip Island activities. Thank you for your hospitality!
