Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our family had an amazing holiday in a 2 bedroom Spa Villa which was very clean and spacious. The garden is beautiful and well maintained. The kids enjoyed the heated pool. Mark and Andrea were very friendly and helpful. They reacted quickly to all our requests or concerns during our stay.

As our 126 days of stage 4 restrictions was eased, I needed a mini break so headed for Phillip Island. I had seen the villas advertised on Facebook, hadn’t booked, but thought I would drop by to see if they could accommodate me for the night. I was warmly greeted by the owners who were more than happy to show me around their beautifully landscaped villas, along with a stunning solar heated swimming pool, BBQ areas and children’s playground. The weren’t worried that I was only looking for 1 nights accommodation, but as per all accommodation, there would be minimum requirements for weekend stays I’m assuming. I was given Villa 1. A very spacious, beautifully furnished, and spotlessly clean villa with a large well equipped kitchen, lounge room, lovely clean bathroom and even a private back patio with comfortable outdoor furniture. The warmth and friendliness shown by the owners sealed the deal, I just wish I was able to stay longer! Next visit, yes there will be a next visit, I’ll be booking for longer as Phillip Island has so much to offer.

The owners were so welcoming when we arrived and throughout our stay at Island Cove Villas. The property was well kept and the villa we stayed in was clean, spacious, modern and perfect for two or more. We had full access to the pool, tennis court as well as the BBQ area which we frequently used. Highly recommend the breakfast at the property as Andrea makes it to your liking and delivers straight to your door! Would definitely come and visit again next time we are in Cowes. :)

Very comfy place, quiet, peaceful and classy. Villas are really big and well "organized". Mark & Andrea are some really nice people, kind, gentle, and sympathetic. Therefore during a busy weekend as the MotoGp race week end is. We'll get back there for sure !

We've booked quite late for the MotoGp race week end. But what a blast... The place is just magnificent. Quiet, clean, peaceful. The owners, Andrea & Mark were so kind and gentle with us. One of the warmest welcome we've ever had. Villas are...BIG. Once again, really clean, and quite new. No need to say more, you have to see it for yourself :) And breakfast... What a nice surprise. Andrea personally brings your breakfast "at home" and she adds her personal touch with a smile and a kind word. No better way to start the day. If you plan to visit Phillip Island, Island Cove Villas are, WITH NO HESITATION, THE PLACE TO STAY IN. I'LL BE BACK ! :)

The location of the property was good but the general cleanliness and upkeep were most disappointing. There was not enough plates and bowls and only 2 wine glasses for a advertised 4* The WiFi didn’t work in our unit although it was advertised which caused me a problem having no phone to communicate with the Uk. The pool was nice but there was a lot of loose tiles around the edge which I considered not safe. Also a lot of the sun beds were broken. All in all not happy and won’t return, although Phillip Island is a lovely location.

Response from Andrea H, Owner at Island Cove Villas- Phillip Island
Responded 8 Apr 2018
We are sorry to hear your review Lyn. Not sure what happened with your sunbed experience, maybe you had difficulty using them as they were all brand new and on checking after your departure, they are all in perfect working order. Please know that all our guests are always welcome to approach during thier stay if they have any concerns or issues. Had you come to see us we would have been more than happy to help you enjoy your stay. Also, each room is allocated enough cutlery for each guest. eg 10 guests, 10 sets of cutlery, plates, cups etc. After your departure we found the top right hand overhead cupboard full of glasses and 8 wine glasses so unfortunately you must of missed them. Our apologies for the lack of wi-fi, it was newly fitted and there is now a booster right in front of the Villa where you stayed. I am not sure what you are referring to regarding loose tiles and assume you mean the loose pebbles around the garden you mentioned in your other review. These are part of the garden setting and we ask that all guests refrain from walking through the garden as a saftey precaution and to preserve our beautiful gardens.

The owner are stay nearby and you need to call as I guess most is that time maybe there are not in the office after the check in hrs. But the owner are kind enough to respond our request. Only stay for one nite for our Philip island tour , general are meeting expectation but the air con heater are only available for living room therefore is kind of cool at the bed room at it is cool weather at May2017. The swimming pool at the playground we not manage to use it. It is few mins drive to the town and you can get most of the thing there and supermarket are there too.

Stayed at Surf and Circuit for 4 nights with family including a 2 year old . We stayed in apartment 4 --- 2 bedroom . Lovely and clean , spacious , comfy beds , large living area , good tv and DVD player . High chair and portacot supplied . The park was beautifully kept , 2 x outdoor pools and shared BBQ areas. Management were very friendly and accomodating and fixed an issue with the DVD player promptly . Child safe . Great playground and tennis court Central location to Cowes . Highly recommend for families . We will be returning . Only negative was - there are no ovens in the apartments . Considering the size of the kitchen and the fact the apartments are self catering, we expected an oven . There is a basic microwave and great cooktop . Fantastic accommodation!
