We stayed at Piet's Cottage on our recent visit to Phillip Island. We had 3 adults and two young children (aged 2 and 3). We found the house to be well appointed with everything we needed. We found the owner excellent to deal with and highly communicative. Property comes with everything including linen which was a big plus for us. Very conveniently located near the beach close to the Phillip Island Sailing Club. Also very convenient to the main street and cafes on the esplanade. We were visiting outside school holidays so it wasn't too busy but I would imagine it would get quite busy at the height of the holiday season. No problem with parking though with a driveway at the back providing easy access for unloading and loading cars (would take 3 cars easily). Plenty of space in the gardens for the kids to run around safely. One drawback for us is that it doesn't have a bath - that was OK, the kids just had to learn to use the shower. All-in-all an excellent place to stay when visiting Phillip Island.

A clean, comfortable and cute cottage. We had a great stay at this property over a long weekend. Location is great - the beach is a stone's throw away (you are looking at it from the front gate) and just a block away from the shops and restaurants of Cowes. We had our two teenagers with us so it was ideal - they could do their own thing and hit the shops while we relaxed in peace.
It's an old property which has been renovated with all mod cons. The owner is an artist so another point of interest is the finished and in-progress canvases. This place suits summer or winter stays - I am planning a winter weekend so we can light the open fire.
