A beach house by the sea…


Where wine by the fire and conversation on the verandah give a welcome space from the everyday. For those looking for a unique phillip island accommodation experience.

Inside the house that’s hard to categorise in terms of style - you will find tables stacked with books, aged hardwood floors, a french open fireplace, feature pendants, woven rugs, plantation shutters, restored furnishings and tokens of travel - all drawn together to create relaxed spaces for friends and family to come together.


Explore Nature

Just 90 minutes from Melbourne, the symbolic San Remo Bridge is your invitation to leave the mainland behind and immerse in our natural island paradise known as Phillip Island.

Majestic coastlines, white sandy beaches and spectacular walking tracks all make exploring this untouched landscape top of the list.

On the southern coast of Phillip Island, you will find Verandah Retreat, privately positioned just a 200m walk from the foreshore of Cowes Beach, a beach with panoramic ocean views of Westernport Bay towards the Mornington Peninsula and French Island. At low tide, the sand becomes the perfect place for a walk or a picnic and at dusk the magnificent sunset is something you must make time to sit and experience

View magnificent wildlife with a visit to the Phillip Island wildlife park, furry penguins, or jump aboard a cruise to view the annual whale migrations. There are koalas to see, abundant birdlife and farm animals spread amongst rich green pasture all over the Island.

On the faster side of life, Phillip Island is home to major racing events such as the Michelin® Australian annual Motorcycle Grand Prix & Superbike World Championships, the Phillip Island Circuit boasts some of the best ocean views and spectacular vantage points on the international circuit.

We are excited to be one of the luxury escapes tourism offerings on Phillip Island, showcasing a special part of Victoria, the Gippsland Region.

“highly recommend to families wanting that homely feeling”

" The house is amazing with lovely style and separate space for the kids to play. The kitchen and house were very clean and well stocked with essentials. The outdoor alfresco and landscaped yard made it even better. We will definitely be returning here for another holiday and would highly recommend it to families wanting that homely feeling while away “

Dale Williams


“It is a beautiful modern home with excellent furniture and fittings. Everything needed for a great stay is provided. It is a very short walk to the beach and when my sisters and I stayed we had the beach to ourselves. Phillip Island is also wonderful. I would love to return and stay again at the Verandah Retreat”
