About this listing
This is our family get away, unusual, unique and creative. More playful shack than a formal house - our place is a relaxed beach escape at the Paris End of Phillip Island. It is quirky, unexpected, unusual and very personal. Slide back the doors of this polished concrete floored space featuring Aga oven, open fire, day bed and cow skin rugs, amazing bathroom & enjoy relaxed balcony dining.
If you want art and different, this is your place. (if you want IKEA and spotless this is not for you)
This is our beach retreat - and we love it.
Blending new with old, we recently renovated the inside of this island 'shack'. You will find polished concrete floors, crisp white walls and ceilings, creative lighting and funky floor coverings through out.
The L shaped living space features a large open fire place (wood supplied), an open plan fully equipped kitchen with Belfast sink, English tap fittings and a gas AGA oven. The dining area comfortably seats 8.
A book case sits beside the open fire with a selection of fiction and non fiction titles.
The 'L' section of the room has a day bed, for snoozing or watching one of the many DVD's. One of the couches can fold out into a (semi comfortable) double bed for unexpected guests.
In winter, pump up the fire... On warmer days open up the long sliding panel doors to the deck and create a seamless inside / outside space. Then dine alfresco on the deck, pump up the BBQ - or toast marshmallows over the fire-pit. Note: We have decided to keep the price of sharing our space lower - and trust that you are OK supplying your own firewood. Firewood is available for purchase at gas stations and general stores on the island.
We have a beautiful bathroom, with hand screened Italian tiles, a vintage silver backed cut mirror, original bath, vanity and fittings rescued from a local hospital and 1930's hand crafted wall lights (rewired - re-enameled, re-imagined).
There are two bedrooms, both with double doors opening out to a small private wilderness. The larger has a king size bed and a fold out for a child, the smaller a double bed with another fold out single.\\
We have a separate laundry with washing machine and dryer.
You will have access to the whole property.
Interaction with guests
Part of the beauty of this space is the quiet privacy this part of the island affords - so unless there is an issue that needs resolving, we prefer to leave you to enjoy your time with yourselves.
You are welcome to help yourself as needed to any of the consumables in the kitchen - food (like pasta) - but we ask if you could replace what you use. Note: Bed Linen, Bath and Beach Towels and Toiletries supplied.

Hi! - My wife Cath, and I, a designer are frequent travelers and have had the privilege of staying in a number of AirBNB houses, apartments and rooms abroad. We enjoy meeting new people from all over and have an open table at our place.
Surrounded by family, friends, art and books our homes reflect a random eclectic taste in old and new things blended with our own sense of style.
We look forward to hosting you.
