Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I took our dogs to the Boathouse for the weekend and had a wonderful time.

The dogs loved the big backyard and their trip to the beach at the back of the property. Our dogs are escape artists so we kept a close eye on them in the backyard but thankfully the fencing was enough to keep them in.

The house is very homely and relaxing, we didn't have the best weather but when the sun came out we still managed to spend an hour of so on the upstairs balcony looking out to the water.

The location is great, quiet, plenty of wildlife. Only a 15 minute drive to Cowes. We had dinner at the Rust Water Brewery down the road which id recommend and lunch the following day in San Remo which was beautiful.

Looking forward to our next visit!

Everything we wanted!

We loved our time at the Boathouse, plenty of space for the kids and dog to play! Sunday Roast by the fire, drinks on the balcony over looking the water. Perfect location with everything you need!

Owner's Response: Danielle, We really regret the issues you had and were pleased to provide you will a full refund. As you would be aware Victoria is having a bit of a mouse issue and Phillip Island is not immune to that. We have since had professionals go in to the house and deal with the little critters. Whilst we have had no evidence of their return, being a semi rural location we will keep our eye out.. Again I am really sorry. Sandy

Great place for a relaxing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic and relaxing 5 days at The Boathouse. Perfect location right on the water with a great beach to explore. Close to Churchill Island and Cape Woolamai and an easy drive to Cowes and The Nobbies. The facilities were great and there was plenty of room to spread out, including two deck areas. Would highly recommend it!

Amazing, cosy and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed a few weekends ago with our beautiful dog and we love it!!! Our doggie love it so much we could not get over the disappointment look on his face when we were packing our things on the last day. The house was cosy and it had everything we needed for our stay. The lovely view of the beach at the end of the yard was amazing and we enjoy going for a walk along the beach trail. We will love to stay again as it is the type of place you would enjoy in summer and winter.
