Overview

About the property

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS WOOLAMAI TOWNSHIP - NOT CAPE WOOLAMAI

If you are looking for peace and quiet away from (15 min drive) the crowds at Phillip Island, yet be close to the beaches, this is the place for you.

Fully renovated 1940's cottage set amongst oak trees, just minutes drive from kids swimming and surf beaches. Just 90 minutes from Melbourne CBD and 15 mins to Phillip Island this tranquil hide away makes this property very unique. There are no neighbours on either side or at the back. There is a fully enclosed back yard for kids or pets. Spend sunny afternoons and evenings on the deck and BBQ area in the back yard listening to nothing but the kookaburras.

Woolamai Escape is 5 minutes walk to the Bass Coast Rail Trail. The trail has recently been extended to run parallel to the front of the house and is a beautiful choice for walking, jogging, bicycle or horseback riding. Please see the Bass Coast web site for more details.

Lovely relaxing stay.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. There was plenty of space in the house and garden for 4 adults, three kids and two dogs. It was a comfortable house with everything you needed.

It's quiet and relaxed, but close enough to Philip island and all the places you'd want to go that you don't miss out on anything.

beds are comfy.

Ac keeps you cool and the fire place is large, so we'd like to stay there in winter to try that out.

We ate at the Indian restaurant down the road one night which was lovely. Is BYO.

We would go back there.

Only thing to note is there are not enough seats around the table in side if we all ate together. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Lovely little retreat with a homely vibe

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this adorable property was really lovely. A great spot, gorgeous surrounds, handy walking track for the dogs and a great back yard for them to run around in. Highly recommend if you want someone quiet and private.

Escape to the Peace!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this quiet little cottage. Spent the evening sitting on the back deck with a glass of wine listening to nothing but the birds. Tried the rail trail with my bike across the road and was pleasantly surprised to find no one on it. Kilcunda beach is another beautiful venue for a walk (few minutes drive) to listen to the waves crashing in. Great value for money. Can't wait to come back.
