Relax and unwind at this delightful beach side gem. An easy 1.5 hour drive from Melbourne. Entire house available. Pooch and kid friendly, the house is perfect for gatherings of all shapes and sizes. Enjoy a crackling open fire in winter or a refreshing summer swim at nearby Smith's Beach. Literally five minutes walk to the beach and general store, the house is in a great little spot.
The house itself is spacious and has two large living areas, as well as a loft style master bedroom and ensuite. There are four bedrooms and two bathrooms (one with bath), including a kids room with two bunks and a trundle. Bubs are well catered for with portacot and highchair. There are beds for 11 people; we are happy to negotiate the odd extra. As well as an open fire, the house has reverse cycle heating and cooling.
Fancy a surf, bike ride or spot of fishing? The house is well stocked with bikes, fishing rods, golf clubs, surfboards and boogie boards. Explore the much loved Island on foot or treadlie, it truly is nature's paradise. Foodies are well catered for, with great local eateries at Rhyll and Woolamai, including our favourite spot, the Island Food Store tucked away in Cowes (think Very Good Coffee). Enjoy a tipple or two at the Purple Hen Winery. Stock up on local produce at the monthly Churchill Island farmer's market. And don't forget the famous penguins, Pyramid Music festival and of course the international Motorcycle Grand Prix.
Exhausted by all that adventuring? Curl up by the fire with a good book and a game of Scrabble. Old school board games and a bookworm's collection add a dash of nostalgia to your stay. Unwind with some tunes - there's a docking station for your iPod and a bit of an 80's CD collection. There's also a DVD player, a stack of movies and an old school VCR. Blues Brothers anyone?
Summer or winter, it's a cool little place. We think you will love it.

Nice sized home, which slept all 11 of us on our trip down to Tough Mudder! Clean and well maintained, very comfortable and conveniently located. Hosts were great and provided us a wealth of information to assist us during our stay. Thanks very much, would definitely recommend.
Lovely big house, close to the beach and very homely. Matt and Nicole were a pleasure to deal with so ticks all round.
Matt and Nicole were very friendly and easy going about arranging our stay. We could not have been happier with the house, the location, and Smiths beach! The house was beyond our expectations, a beautiful large space, with lovely decor, and was well equipped for any outdoor or indoor experience. There was an excellent selection of magazines, books, games, and favourite cassette tapes, plus sports gear for the beach and activities.
Smiths beach was excellent for swimming, surfing, and enjoying the sunshine. I would be delighted to stay again.
Great, clean & tidy home in such a good location. I enjoyed relaxing in front of the lovely open fireplace and taking in the sea view from the upstairs loft room. Matt & Nicole were a pleasure to communicate with. Highly recommend staying at this beach house! Thanks :)
