We had not visited Phillip Island for several years and decided to take our 12 yo son for a few days of beach and relaxation. We stayed at Holmwood for 4 days and were thorougly spoilt by our hosts Jill and Jason. The photos on the website do not do it justice! Luxury and perfect styling make you think you have arrived into the pages of a magazine...but, most importantly, we enjoyed the hospitality and warmth of our hosts, nothing was too much trouble and the breakfast was delicious. We could walk to the beach in a couple of minutes and stroll to the many restaurants and cafes from the guesthouse. We stayed in a studio apartment that had 3 bedrooms, excellent airconditioning ( important as the temperature was in the high 30's every day) and a great kitchenette had we wanted to cook a meal. The bathroom is beautifully equipped with soft towels and organic toiletries. Beds and bed linen were very comfortable too.
All in all, one night is not enough - if you travel here to sightsee or relax, Jill and Jason will look after you superbly.
Thank you for a great few days, we look forward to visiting again soon.
