“Cosy and comfortable cottage with all you need”
Reviewed September 19, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We loved our stay At The Beach and wished it could have been longer. Very clean and well set up and in a quiet area. Our host couldn't have been more helpful and hopefully one day we will return

“Location! Location!”
Reviewed March 3, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This is our second time staying At The Beach. We love it here. The cottage is very spacious, clean, well stocked, very comfortable and has a lovely relaxed vibe. It is located in a great spot. So close to the Phillip Island MotoGP circuit which we attend alot for motobike racing events. It's near to the lovely Smith's Beach and around the corner from the Rusty Water Brewery bar and grill restaurant, which we love going to and can recommend. At The Beach is becoming our favourite home away from home. We look foward to enjoying it more in Winter too when we can sit by the fire with a glass or two of a good red wine.

“Our weekend dream come true!”
Reviewed February 24, 2016 for a stay in February 2016
1
person found this review helpful

“At the Beach” is a beautiful private holiday house nestled in the heart of Sunset Strip, Phillip Island, the romantic sounding location of our most recent getaway. Captain America and I headed down on Friday evening after a grueling week at work, and were greeted with our dream: a blue weatherboard cottage with white window frames and an inviting verandah, and yes, my favourite, a tin roof! Dreams DO come true!

Inside, we were greeted for Valentine’s weekend with wine and chocolates and a note welcoming us for our stay. The generously proportioned living/lounge area and dining/kitchen area are beautifully decorated, with plenty of possibilities for people from all walks of life. There is a cupboard of board games, DVDs, and a super-comfy couch that just cuddles you if you like to pop your feet up and read.

The smallest details have been considered, and it is this which makes “At the Beach” the welcoming home away from home that Captain America and I now consider to be “ours” on certain weekends (yes, we’ve booked ahead for future getaways!!) Being the middle of summer, we were pleasantly surprised to find a freezer full of Zooper Doopers; there’s coffee, tea, vegemite, sunscreen and insect repellant in the pantry – just in case you forget yours. In the kitchen we discovered everything from garbage bags to cleaning materials – handy in case someone spills the sauce! Yes, it is THIS attention that makes your stay memorable.

The bedrooms (there are two – a master with en suite and a second bedroom next to the second bathroom – kind of an en suite!) are again nicely proportioned and decorated, and very comfy. The second bedroom has a bunk with double-bed at the bottom – handy if you decide to head away with your brother and his wife and kids (which, incidentally, we shall be doing soon!!)

The back deck contains an outdoor setting, a large BBQ, and space in the courtyard to keep everyone nicely spaced out if they wish to do their own thing. Just gorgeous!

Less than ten minutes to Cowes, the shops, nightlife, beaches, restaurants and touristy things are within your reach. If you’re looking for something a little indulgent, a five minute drive will see you arrive at Purple Hen Winery, where we enjoyed a delicious wine tasting, nibbles and pure bliss in the summer breeze; under the cherry tree with the winery dogs at our feet, overlooking the ocean, the worries of work dissolved and we found ourselves getting into the spirit of the romance!

We also enjoyed the excellent National Vietnam Veterans Museum and exhibition, and were treated to some “behind the scenes” access courtesy of a well-informed volunteer guide. Definitely worth the $15 entry fee – check it out.

But of course our heart returns, as always, to the little blue cottage, our home away from home. Do yourself a favour: stay here – you will fall in love, find your bliss, and sleep like a baby.

Thank you Kim and Steve for a truly memorable weekend.

“Perfect Holiday House”
Reviewed February 24, 2016 for a stay in January 2016
1
person found this review helpful

Stayed 4 nights with the pooch and two other adults and we couldn't ask for better accomodation. The house is tucked away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to the beach and a local coffee shop. Perfect if you want an early morning beach run and afterwards a nice latte. The house itself has everything you need - so much more than your standard rental property. So if you are looking for some time away in a comfortable and clean home then this is the place for you -we will be back very soon

“Do Yourself A Favour - Stay "At the Beach"”
Reviewed February 23, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We had a wonderful week, with the house being very comfortable, clean and inviting. The house is in quiet location. Lovely to venture out to the close beaches, walks, restaurants and all other attractions, but nice to come back and relax away from the hustle and bustle. Having a bathroom off each of the bedrooms was a massive plus. With great facilities and small extras provided, made this a very enjoyable stay. Would highly recommend this property for an affordable, relaxing holiday! Will definitely be back again!

“Relax, unwind, it's all there ready and waiting for you.”
Reviewed February 22, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Really lovely relaxing feel to the place, you feel right at home. Ample room with the open plan kitchen, meals & entertainment area. There are games,TV, dvd player etc. or you can enjoy the peace and quiet, kick back and read a book. BBQ/entertainment area outside.
Plenty of room in the bedrooms and very comfortable beds with an ensuite and a walk in robe for each of them. The cottage is fully equipped, aircon, dishwasher, dryer etc. This is truly a home away from home and I imagine it would be lovely and cosy in the winter with the Bluestone surround open fireplace. Not far from a really good beach & not far from Cowes either. Prrrrrrrfect.. I was able to have my little dog with me too :) Absolutely enjoyed my stay .
