'The Apartment' is a completely separate, front part of our cosy home with a fully furnished bedroom, light and bright separate lounge with TV/DVD, and couch that can be folded down into a second double bed for two people travelling together needing separate beds, large bathroom (includes a bath), kitchenette, and your own private entrance from the front covered verandah.
Our home is the perfect place to relax after a busy day out and about, it's lovely and private, in a quiet court, behind a tall front fence with lovely gardens and a sunny verandah. Perfect to sit back quietly, sip on something cool and enjoy a break away.
We live a quiet laid-back lifestyle, this space is perfect for a single, couple or two friends. We know the Island well and can recommend the best places to eat and to visit.
Our home is located centrally to everything our beautiful Island has to offer. We are within a couple of minutes by car to the main centre of Cowes and beach (5km). Or if you prefer, walk or cycle along the bike track to Cowes, gorgeous beaches, or a little further on to San Remo.
We are ideally situated for attending events at the Grand Prix Track, being a few mins drive, a short bike ride or a moderate sized walk away.
If you don't have transport, we are a short walk away from the V-line bus stop, and during events and holiday times there is a shuttle bus available. We also have bicycles you can loan, and if you're coming by bus, do let us know and we'll pick you up from the bus stop.
Breakfast provisions: coffee / tea / sugar / milk / juice / muesli / freshly baked bread by Kristine / spreads / fresh fruit. We'll ask you before you arrive if you have any dietary requirements such as dairy, nut, fructose or gluten free which we will happily accommodate.

We (Kristine and Ben) are now living in this beautiful home, and Sharon and Paul have left the Apartment in our capable hands. We are so looking forward to having as much fun with it as they had, and we look forward to welcoming guests. This is what they have written about us!
"Ben and Kristine are our great friends who will be taking over The Apartment Airbnb from us. As well as experienced travellers they are exceptional hosts, friendly, thoughtful and interesting. They know all there is to know about the beautiful Phillip Island having lived and worked on the Island for years. Kris is passionate about food and healthy living and they both enjoy a quiet, healthy lifestyle, always up for some fun, a chat and a laugh. We adore these guys and we know you will too! If you're visiting the Island and staying with Ben and Kristine, you're in great hands and their Apartment is just beautiful!! Have fun!"

Very friendly and helpful hosts. Quiet house and area. Delicious homemade bread. Very spacious self contained unit. Would definitely go again.
Well located and professionally run by a friendly and young couple. Breakfast was excellent. Very spacious place. Highly recommended.
Thanks for making our getaway such a pleasant experience! From the well thought out design of the apartment which allows for complete privacy, to the freshly baked bread, supplied bath products, supplied milk, tea, coffee, muesli etc, these guys really know how to make their place feel like your home for the time you're there. Everything is neat & clean, and the hosts are seriously lovely people. Thanks for having us and we hope to see you again :o)
Wonderful place to stay! Lovely bath, friendly and informative hosts. Would love to stay again :)
We had a great time staying with Kristine & Ben over the new year period! The perfect way to bring in the new year. Very friendly, accommodating and a lovely couple. Restaurant recommendations were great, quiet, close to Cowes, private and very homely. Nothing was too much to ask!
We will definitely stay here again and be recommending the accommodation to the rest of our friends and family! :) Thanks again for having us!
If you go to Philip Island you have to stay in Kristine & Ben house!
Amazing hosts, amazing house and amazing stay!
I can just think in a really good feedback!
We had an amazing stay in Philip Island. Ben and Kristine were great; when we arrived they gave us the 'grand tour' through their appartment, the freshly baked bread was delicious and they were very kind giving us all the information we needed for our stay.
If ever going back, we would definitely stay there again; the appartement was amazing (especially after staying in motels and camper for several weeks).
Thanks so much for a very pleasant stay!! :-)
Jeroen, Liesbeth and Lore!
We had a great time staying with Kristine & Ben. They were very friendly, organised and communicative, and they gave us some great tips about what to do whilst on Phillip Island. The accommodation was very clean and tidy and is in a nice central location. Highly recommended :)
