We rented a two bedroom apartment and it was spacious. The kitchen, room and toilet were big enough and clean. There was also a washing machine and a dryer. The location was really close to Coles and Woolworths (within walking distance), but if you are planning to shop, take the car with you. Checking in was quite easy, but we... More

We stayed for two nights in a two bedroom apartment. We found the apartment very clean with quality linen and generous supply of essentials like dishwashing liquid, milk, etc. The apartments had nice new carpets, comfortable seating and the kitchen was well stocked with plenty of cups, plates and equipment. The beds were so comfortable, had the best nights sleep.... More

We spent one night in a 2 bedroom apartment and had a very pleasant stay. Staff are pleasant and check in at their other complex was smooth. The complex is quiet and secure. The apartment was spacious, clean, had modern decor and was well appointed. It had some signs of wear and tear, but nothing of consequence. A great location... More

Stayed here for one night to visit Philip Island, location of the apartment is great, within walking distance to supermarkets and restaurants in town. Only slight inconvenience is that check in is at another location. The apartment itself was clean, spacious, free parking was available. Would recommend if you're visiting Philip Island.

Oceanic Apartments is a great place to stay if you are visiting Cowes at Phillip Island. Located on the main street, close to the centre of town, it's far enough away from the restaurant precinct that you are not affected by the noise but still only a short walk away to the quiet and comfort of these apartments.
