Second trip to French Island Eco Inn and it was incredible once again! Phil and Yuko are amazing hosts. The in-house restaurant has you covered for all meals. Sea views, koalas, cozy, need I say more?

Our family spent time here as we were considering a move to French Island. The natural, beautiful setting and the graciousness of our hosts played a huge role in our decision to buy a home on the island. The cabins and Inn are solar and wind powered, everything is off the grid and completely Eco friendly. The facilities are quite...

The owners kindly provided a weekend prize and ferry tickets to me for an auction prize for a local charity I ran in November 2016. The successful bidders are friends and reported back before Xmas that they had a fantastic time, everything perfect. Host sensational, food and service the same. These people who bought the prize are very fussy and...

Wonderful 3 days with our family (with an infant and 4-year old) on off-the-grid French Island, with wonderful hosts Phil and Yuko. This place stands out due to the combination of its location/setting and the atmosphere of the place. Our cabin overlooked the meadow with alpacas, the ocean, Phillip Island, and the endless sky. Several koalas are in the trees...

Kind of want to keep this place a secret as it's so special. Beautiful, quiet, full of wildlife especially koalas and fabulous service. Phil and Yuko made our stay very special with delicious food and plenty of refreshing drinks and 'dad style' humour! Views from the cabins spectacular. Beach well worth the walk with long stretches of pure white sand...

The location is incredible, the food was fantastic, and Phil and the team were extremely patient and beyond attentive with our large family group. We couldn't have been happier. Phil is extremely knowledgeable of all things 'French Island' so be sure to pick his brain.

I'd just like to say a huge thank you to Phil and everyone at Eco Inn for making my birthday one to remember. Myself and 19 of my friends took part in the fun and games over a delicious 3 course meal. Everyone looked the part and played the part. I would highly recommend this venue for a get away...

Fantastic! Always a memorable experience and a great getaway though so close to Melbourne. Local wines also splendid as well as the hospitality if the staff. 70% of this island is national park with amazing bird life and flora. Enjoy.

It is only a 15 minute ferry ride from Stony Point to French Island, but it is like you are entering a whole new world. Phil will happily pick you up from the ferry but we decided to walk, it is an easy 10 min walk to the Eco Inn. The rooms are fairly basic but very comfortable. There is...

Phil was very helpful getting us settled in, providing a sense of the French Island community/way of life and cracking a few "dad jokes" throughout our stay :P. We were given a map and lots of advice to help us get the most out of our first visit to the island. Phil offered to be on call should we get...
