Newhaven is a quiet part of Phillip Island, just over the bridge from San Remo.
The beaches in Newhaven are quiet, secluded and very private.
The Newhaven Yacht Club is within a few minutes drive, and right next to the boat ramp, which is a perfect place to launch the boat for fishing.
Ample boat trailer parking is available on site and the pier is a great spot for fishing if you don't have a boat.
An easy walk to local supermarket, newsagent, surf shop and cafes.
The world famous Woolamai Surf Beach is just a 5 minute drive and beautiful sandy bay beaches abound.
San Remo has a couple of pubs, some great restaurants, cafes and has kept the fishing village feel about it, still maintaining that relaxed attitude the island is renowned for.
V-Line bus stop less than 10 minute walk away. Daily to and from Melbourne.
Local taxi service is excellent.

We really enjoyed our stay at Mark and Tricia's place. It's in a great location and very easy to find, with great directions. Mark and Tricia were away when we arrived, but left the key out with clear instructions about where to find it. The space is lovely, spacious and warm with a nice outlook into the garden. It's private and clean, and the facilities are great. Breakfast provisions were fantastic, and there are books, games and dvds there to use as well. We loved the peace and quiet of the place, and really felt like we had a good break. There's lots of information too about what to see and do on the island, and it's close to Churchill Island which is a nice place to visit. I recommend staying here if you're going to Phillip Island.
We met Mark and unfortunately did not meet Tricia but Mark made us feel welcome and their home was just as described and one of the best places I have stayed. Great home setting and easy access to the many attractions on Philip Island. If we had to do it over again I would have stayed longer.
What a great little place to stay. It had everything we needed for our three night stay. We were travelling on business, so we didn't get to see much of the Island, but the accommodation was perfect for coming back to relax, and the welcome that Bella gave us at the door made you feel so good. I even sat outside with her for a while one night! Thank you to Mark and Tricia, who were very helpful and lovely hosts. Even though its part of the house, you wouldn't even know that anyone else was there. The accommodation was clean and the beds were very comfy. Definitely recommend the property. Thanks Sam and Brendan.
Mark and his cute dog Bella welcomed us very friendly at their lovely home. We had our own entrance and everything was as described. We really enjoyed our stay on Philip Island and can highly recommend this beautiful place!
I enjoyed my weekend away at Tricia and Mark's apartment. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. And Bella the dog was always there to greet me. The apartment was as described and had everything I needed. It is located in a quiet but beautiful location on the island. I definitely recommend this place.
We had a great stay at Tricia and Marks place. The house is divided Into two parts, so we had our own entrance, Living room and bedroom. Everything was nice and clean and there were even maps and suggestions on what to do on Phillip Island! We can definatly recommend staying at Tricia and Marks place which is located in a quiet neighbourhood but still close to the mainroad!
About the Host, Mark And Tricia
We are an easy going couple who enjoy travelling, visiting new places and experiencing different cultures.
We used Air bnb a couple of years ago while travelling through Italy and really enjoyed meeting local people who were able to give us an unbiased opinion on where to go, what to see and where to eat. Beacause we both really love our food, where to eat was very important to us :-)
We are enjoying the experience of hosting people from all over the world and feel very comfortable opening up our home to our fellow Air bnb guests.
With extensive local and regional knowledge we can help you plan your trip and tell you about the hidden secrets Phillip Island has to offer.
So, come in, relax and enjoy your time in this beautiful part of the world that we are lucky enough to call home.
Mark and Tricia
