Phillip Island Accommodation Reviews at Verandah Retreat

Loved by Travelers Worldwide


Our girls weekend at Verandah Retreat Cowes was exceptional. Beautiful accommodation with so many extras in the house. All were impressed. The only problem the weekend was too short, and yes we would love to return.

"We can't wait to come back in winter and use the fire!"

" Verandah retreat is exactly that.... A Retreat! We picked this property for its great location and new appearance and found a place that we will keep coming back to every time we visit friends on the island.  This house has everything you need and is so cosy and welcoming. We can't wait to come back in winter and use the fire! "

“I wouldn't stay anywhere else in cowes.”

This house is a home away from home with its stunning beachy Hampton interior & secluded, enclosed alfresco outdoor area. We have young children which the house is ideal for. The location is one of the best in cowes, only minutes walk to the beach & around 15 mins to the main st. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Cowes. In fact we live this house so much we asked the owners to sell it to us if they ever put it on the market :-)

'The house is spacious'

“We were a family of two grandparents,two parents and two grand daughters who had a very fine three night stay in the retreat. The property looked brand new and we felt we were the first visitors. The house is spacious, very comfortable and is extremely well equipped.

“Highly recommend”

" Absolutely Fantastic house for a holiday. Great location, only 5 minutes walk to the beach and 10 minutes the shops. The house is amazing with lovely style and separate space for the kids to play. The kitchen and whole house were very clean and well stocked with essentials. The outdoor alfresco and landscaped yard made it even better. The owners are very easy to deal with providing answers and responses almost immediately. We had a great long weekend away here and fell into it like a home away from home. We will definitely be returning here for another holiday and would highly recommend it to families wanting that homely feeling while away "

"Fireplace makes a cosy warm environment in the cold weather"

" Absolutely everything was self contained in this beautiful house. Located close to cowes shops you can cook in the immaculate kitchen that has every little extra you could ask for. Comfy mattresses and definitely child friendly if needed. The fireplace makes a cosy warm environment in the cold weather. The gardens are very neat and the house is very secure in a quiet street. washing facilities were also a welcome extra. Felt just like a home away from home "

“Beautifully decorated.”

The house was stunning, beautifully decorated and spacious. Upstairs was huge, with a balcony and a fabulous bathroom.
