About this listing
A very comfortable 2 bedroom family house
15 minute walk from Red Rocks beach
4km/10min drive to the town of Cowes and all shops
Easy access to both family and surf beaches, Seal Rocks, Penguin Parade and all other attractions.
Red Rocks house is situated in an older neighbourhood of Phillip Island, away from the new subdivisions, and surrounded by trees on a quiet unpaved street with little traffic or noise and lots of local birdlife. An ideal location for a short stay or longer visit on the island.
The house is a modest family home, with 2 bedrooms and large open plan living, kitchen and dining area. It's been in our family for over 15 years.
There is a large patio area, ideal for entertaining, outdoor meals in summer, and for families with small children or pets. A large grassy private backyard adjoins the patio.
The main town of Cowes is only 4km / 10 minutes drive away, or you can take a longer walk along the beach in to town.
The Penguin Parade and Seal Rocks are an easy 15 minute drive away, or you can spot koalas at the Ventnor Koala Reserve, or wallabies nearby at Flynn's beach.
The Grand Prix Circuit is also only 10 minutes drive from the house.
It is a short walk to Red Rocks beach, with views across to the Mornington Peninsula, which is an ideal for a day out for families, or for your morning run.
For surfers it is a short drive to the more protected reef breaks such as Cat Bay, Flynn's, Right Point, Berries and Kitty Miller. A little further away are Smith's Beach where there is a surf school, and the Woolamai coast line, part of the National Surfing Reserve.
A fully appointed kitchen with oven/stove, microwave, kettle, double sink, large fridge and freezer, and cookware.
Linen and towels provided upon request.
Indoor and outdoor dining tables. A large couch, flat screen digital TV.
Fireplace and airconditioning.
A laundry and washing machine is available to use for those staying for four or more nights.
