Welcome to San Remo and Phillip Island!

One of Australia's premier tourist destinations, Phillip Island is just a two hour drive from Melbourne and is visited by upwards of 3.5 million domestic and international tourists each year. Make yourself at home in one of our tastefully decorated and superbly appointed holiday retreats - an affordable getaway for the whole family to enjoy.

Take time out from the city to relax. Meander along the gorgeous beaches, discover the breathtaking beauty of the Island's rugged coastlines, walk or cycle the many kilometres of awesome tracks and hiking routes, dine out at some of the many tempting restaurants and wineries, enjoy one of the amazing Wildlife Coast Cruises, take a scenic flight in a light plane or helicopter, or check out some of the other exciting attractions the Island has to offer...

Phillip Island is the home of motor sport in Australia, and the racing circuit - widely regarded as the one of the most spectacular in the world - is set against a backdrop of rolling hills and sparkling seas. Motorcycle fans converge on the Island three times a year, for the Motorcycle Grand Prix, Super Bikes and the Island Classic, while four-wheel enthusiast can enjoy the V8 Supercars, Island Magic, Historic Cars and many other events. In fact, there is rarely a weekend throughout the year where there is not something happening at the track!

Phillip Island is also an exceptionally popular destination for swimming and surfing, with four of the Island's favourite surf beaches - Smiths, Woolamai, Summerland and Cat Bay - recently becoming the first Victorian beaches to be added to the list of National Surfing Reserves. And with its three well placed boat ramps and an abundance of fish in its waters, the island is a fisherman's dream. For those who take a less serious approach to fishing, a trip to the Rhyll Trout and Bush Tucker Farm is just the ticket!

There is a profusion of family fun to be had on the Island, with attractions such as Amaze'n'Things, with its 3D outdoor maze and theme park, The Chocolate Factory for the sweetest adventure on the Island, and the new Go-Kart track at Phillip Island Circuit, where rev-heads of all ages can buckle up like real race-car drivers and satisfy their need for speed! Or you can join the tens of thousands of travellers each year who enjoy a tour of the Churchill Island Heritage Farm - site of the first farm in Victoria - and see exhibitions of sheep shearing, cow milking, whip cracking and working dogs as well as many other farm activities.

But the most vital attraction of Phillip Island lies in its superabundance of native wildlife... This compact, 26km by 9km Island is home to the largest colony of Little Penguins in the world, and Phillip Island Nature Parks hosts more than half a million visitors each year who watch several hundred Little Penguins emerge from the sea at dusk and waddle up to their burrows. Meanwhile, the Koala Conservation Centre - where travellers can get up close and personal with these popular little bears on the Koala Treetop Walk - is a real crowd pleaser.

At the Wildlife Park, visitors can feed the kangaroos and wallabies and observe at first hand over a hundred other species of Australian animals, while the 20,000 Australian fur seals at Seal Rocks make for a magical experience when viewed up close on a Wildlife Coast Cruise from Cowes Jetty.

The fact is, you'll never get bored on Philip Island! You can enjoy a game of golf, go surfing, go swimming, see the Penguin Parade, take the kids to the Chocolate Factory and Amaze'n'Things, visit the wildlife sanctuaries to feed the kangaroos and cuddle the koalas, feed the pelicans at San Remo Jetty, wander around the pretty townships of Cowes and San Remo, do some shopping, go ten-pin bowling, take one of the numerous delightfully planned nature walks, visit nearby Churchill Island or just go fishing... Phillip Island has the lot!

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at Sunset by the Sea. Our reports are all positive. Very good heating, a sensational view and so many 'extras' that helped to make a great holiday for us.

Thanks again. We'll be back!

I am still waiting for a response from Phillip Island Holiday Homes to my email. We found this house to be unkempt on the outside and it had filthy Windows and dirty kitchen cupboards. No dishwasher and a dodgy washing machine.

Owner's Response: Hi Margaret, Thanks for taking the time to note down your thoughts. It's disappointing you didn't enjoy your stay. We're surprised to hear you are waiting on a response - if you recall we spoke on the day of your arrival regarding the washing machine. We had a trades person attend immediately and fix the problem. Regardless, we are replacing the washing machine to avoid any future issues. It's unfortunate, but electrical appliances can break. The kitchen is an older style, however we don't advertise it as having a dishwasher. We also inspected the home after your stay and it was spotless. We would be happy to discuss it further if you would like to respond.

So close to the beach

Very close to the back beach, perfect for swims with little ones. Overall the house is neat and tidy. The pictures are a true reflection of the property.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Sunset by the Sea. The location of the house is amazing, right near a great playground for the kids and walking distance to San Remo township, and a great view from the main bedroom upstairs. The house is comfortable, no heating upstairs but the heating downstairs is very effective and eventually makes it upstairs, no aircon upstairs could be an issue in summer for sleeping.
