Our home at Phillip Island welcomes you....
Let me guess what you're chasing in a beach house? You want cute, right? And, you want a ton of beds, queens for the couples, bunks for the kids, and you want a living space gilded by all-day
sun. When the food comes out, you want a communal table for eight or more that you can fill with the noise of good conversation.
Most of all, the smell of the ocean must fill your nostrils. What's an agreeable distance from the sea? Two hundred metres, at the most? We think so.
This two-storey house was built behind the sand dunes at Surf Beach. Do you surf? You'll think you're in heaven if conditions light up Surfies Point, Crazybirds or Express.
Now, logistics. The main feature of the house is the upstairs living area. Here's where you'll find the main bedroom (with an ensuite and separate toilet) and the open-plan lounge, dining and kitchen.
Downstairs are two more bedrooms and a bathroom with bath and a separate toilet. The laundry has a washing machine, dryer, iron, ironing board and a device for airing your clothes.
Kids will be satisfied with a dedicated room featuring two sets of bunks, couches plus a TV and DVD.
All up, the house sleeps 11 people in two queens, a tri-bunk and another two sets of bunk beds.
You do have to be bring your own linen (doona covers, sheets, towels and pillow cases), which can be a bit of a hassle we know so, if you'd rather, we can arrange for it to be hired.
Other features include wall heaters in every room, air conditioning, a microwave, a dishwasher, 2 TV's and VCR/DVD combo and a gas barbecue. Wireless broadband internet is available and there's a hot outdoor shower to warm the bones after a surf on those crisp offshore winter mornings.
The property is fully fenced so you won't be struck with worry about any kids or pets (which you're welcome to bring) disappearing.
