A large, 6 bedroom beach house close to the magical Surf Beach on Phillip Island. The house boasts 4 lounge rooms, 2 bathrooms, 3 showers, 2 toilets, a new kitchen and dinning room. Three outside eating areas set on 3 huge blocks. This is a house full of warmth, space and character.

The space
The Homestead at Surf Beach was the first house built in the area and has been seducing guests with it's unique charms since 1999. This large, historic house has been fully renovated, extended and landscaped throughout to bring you a classic mix of rustic appeal with modern conveniences.

The house is set on three quarters of an acre, very close to the beach giving guests a feeling of space. It has 6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 4 living areas, an extensive new kitchen and polished baltic pine and hardwood floors throughout. The large full length covered verandah has views over Bass Strait and Swan Bay.

There are 6 bedrooms; 3 queens, 2 double and 8 singles. The bedrooms are set up as follows:

Bedroom 1: Double and single
Bedroom 2: Queen and single
Bedroom 3: Queen and single
Bedroom 4: Bunks (2 singles)
Bedroom 5: Double, single and bunks
Bedroom 6: Queen

The kitchen is expansive and fully equipped with a 5 burner gas stove, large electric oven, microwave, double sink, 2 fridges, new dishwasher, coffee maker, every utensil under the sun and more then enough plates and cutlery for a large group. There is also a breakfast bar at one end of the long counter.

Outside there is a massive garden room/pergola. Inside is a 6 burner hooded bbq, fridge, lounge area, 5 metre dining table and dinner settings for 16 people.

At the front of The Homestead is a huge covered and semi-enclosed verandah that runs the length of the house. Four of the bedrooms and the front lounge room have opening double doors onto the verandah. There is a long dining table for al fresco dinning and spectacular views to Bass Strait and Swan Bay. The space is so large that there is also several lounge suites to socialise and relax on.

Sensational Surf Beach is a 100 metres down the road. Here you can walk 6 kilometres to Cape Woolamai in one direction and 2 kilometres to Sunderland Bay in the other. The beach has a mixture of sandy areas, rocky outcrops and surf at the point.

There is a large fire place (with an abundant supply of wood) in the back lounge room, making it a cosy room for cool winter nights. The front lounge room has a gas heater and all the bedrooms have electric heaters. There are electric blankets on all queen and double beds and a few single beds as well.

One of the features that guests love, and continually comment upon, is the outside shower stall. Of course it has hot water and a shabby chic construction surrounded by evergreen shrubs and plants. Not only perfect for the post swim rinse down, it can be enjoyed at anytime of the day.

There is ample parking for cars at the front and rear of the property. Plenty of room for a trailer as well.

The house is 150 metres from the Surf Beach "bottle-o" which sells your daily needs such as papers, milk, bread, alcohol and general bits and bobs. There is a bus stop here as well with regular buses to Cowes, San Remo, Melbourne and stops in between.

For weekend bookings, guests may arrive anytime Friday and depart anytime Sunday. However, this is only if the house doesn't have back to back bookings.

The house is situated at the narrowest point of Phillip Island, on the top of the hill at Surf Beach. This position creates views to the North of Swan Bay and Westernport Bay. Views to the East and South of Cape Woolamai, Bass Strait and Pyramid Rock.

Everyone who has been to this house, loves it!! It is full of character and close to a wonderful beach. It has space and everything that you could possibly need for a perfect holiday. I am positive you would enjoy your stay at the magical Homestead at Surf Beach.
