There is an on site kitchen with everything else, toaster,bbq,large fridge etc. Good wifi connection. The park is only minutes from centre and 15 mins from penguin parade. Would highly recommend...

We spent 3 nights there while visiting Phillip Island (on a campsite with our car). The park is great: there is a swimming-pool, a kitchen with all you need (barbecue, sink, stoves, kettle, toaster), amenities are very clean, friendly staff with a cool dog. Thanks!!

We came to see the penguins which we thoroughly enjoyed, but beyond that we weren't too impressed with Phillip Island. However, this property was a great place to stay. We were able to get a very good rate with a special advertized on their website. We had a two bedroom cabin that was small and basic, but comfortable for two... More

We came from Melbourne and wanted to see the penguins. Since it was going to be a long drive there and back we decided to stay the night. I work in hospitality and have therefore been cursed by high standards. From the first email response from Lisa I felt a warm personalized service that is missing from many places around... More

Gee, this is one of the nicest reviews I have read. Thank you for sharing this, we do try to keep the prices very reasonable so everybody has a chance to see such a beautiful part of Australia. Whether you have spent $100 for the night or $500 dollars, the cost is irrelevant, as customer service should be number 1... More

We stayed 3 nights along with 3 other families. The managers ensured that we were all close together and the cabin facilities were excellent. Nice quiet caravan park were we felt comfortable letting our kids play and walk to other cabins as their weren't the high traffic of cars. The outside BBQ area is outstanding with everything you would want.... More
