Quiet beach side location, ideal family beach house with 4 good size bedrooms, BYO linen, or we can organise supply for $20 per person. House includes two kitchens, perfect for two families. Take the private track to the beach, or enjoy the view from the huge deck - it's a perfect holiday for families. (NOT AVAILABLE TO "SCHOOLIES")

The house itself has floorboards throughout so any sand that you bring back from the beach can easily be taken care of. Upstairs we have a spacious kitchen with fridge, microwave, stove, oven and dishwasher. There is also a dining area and lounge with three cosy couches for snuggling around the Coonara heater should you come in winter.

Actually, you'll probably rarely use the dining area inside as you'll spend all your time at the outside dining setting, cooking on the BBQ and admiring the view. It's nice and sheltered unlike many places on the Island, just beautiful and peaceful in any season.

Bedding configuration:
Bedroom 1 - 1 queen bed and ensuite
Bedroom 2 - 1 double bed and one set of bunks (2x single)
Bedroom 3 - Two sets of bunks (4 x single)
SC unit (within the house) - Bedroom - Queen bed and ensuite

Bedroom 1 is a large room with a lovely ensuite and plenty of room to put one of the spare mattresses on the floor if needed.

Bedroom 2 is ingeniously divided with a bank of cupboards - one side has a double bed, and the other a set of bunks. Perfect for Mum and Dad to have some privacy yet still have the children near by.

Bedroom 3 is a child's paradise with two sets of bunks so you can throw all the kids in together, shut the door and head for the balcony!

Then you go through the connecting door to another great space - a self contained unit complete with another kitchen, living, lounge, the fourth QS bedroom and ensuite. The lounge is also a fold down double bed if you need it. This is the perfect space for another family, or for young children who get up earlier than everyone else, or when you just need a bit more privacy. A self contained area with a split system heater and airconditioner and a lovely view of the back yard.

All of downstairs is serviced by three bathrooms (one in the unit, one ensuite and a further central toilet and bathroom). A spacious laundry is also on the ground floor. Another toilet upstairs means you don't have to go down and up stairs.

There is a garage and carport, and big back yard with heaps of room to kick the footy under the shade of the trees should you tire of the beach.

And speaking of the beach - well, that's really why we bought this property. The beach is literally at the end of the back yard. Just a short walk down a private track , over the sand dune and you're there! The start of the track is like an enchanted forest, with hanging vines for maximum privacy - not to mention beauty! So less than two minutes and you're on the beach. Kids had enough? Head back home and come back later. Decide you want to fish once you get there? An easy walk back to grab the rod. Forgot the wine to complement a magnificent sunset? Zip home and grab a chilled bottle out of the fridge.

And thank goodness, Ventnor Beach remains a well kept secret so we have rarely seen more than a hundred people on this kilometre long beach. It is that close, and that fantastic!

Phillip Island - a great place for a family holiday or just a weekend break!

Phillip Island is an easy hour and a half drive from Melbourne. The Island is full of fantastic natural attractions including the world famous Penguin Parade, the Nobbies (seals and ocean life) and a terrific Koala Park to name a few. Both the surf beaches and the bay beaches are outstandingly beautiful, as is the unique Churchill Island. And there are plenty of other attractions such as the race track, a bowling alley, terrific restaurants, a maze and adventure park - just loads of things for families of all ages.

Ventnor is the next beach along from the main town of Cowes. Ventnor is a bit of a well kept secret, with the kilometre long beach generally having not more than 100 people on it, even in the middle of summer. It's a short drive into Cowes, but is well serviced by a local licensed shop so if you don't ever want to go into town you don't have to.

Charlie's Place is a two storey family beach house nestled in a tranquil setting in the trees, right on the beach, protected by dunes. A lovely bush feel yet close to all amenities.

Local attractions - lots for the whole family to do!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Beach House with plenty of room We stayed at Charlies Place with two other families. We all walked to the beach on the first morning and went swimming. Well set out house with good facilities. Very close to everything on the Island. Kids absolutely loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic House!! Thouroughly enjoyed our stay (our second having also stayed last year) and such a great house for mutliple frineds/families due to the seperated areas and nothing that you could want for as very well equipped. Perfect location with private Beach Access. Highly recommneded. Hope to be back again next year!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fabulous location What a terrific house for one or more families. We all had a great stay. Back yard cricket, drinks on the deck and a swim just down the track. But would be even better if the mattresses were updated. Thanks to Faye for her kindness. Antoinette

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful place to stay We stayed for the Superbike meeting at Phillip Island. All of the people that stayed were very happy with the location as it was easy to get to with the traffic flow & having the store just down the road for extras was very handy. The house was perfect for the large group with a bed each which the guys certainly appreciated. We are definitely going to be booking this place again if available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charlie's Place - second timers Second time just as good. Shall visit again. Great open house, with lots of rooms, huge deck overlooking tea trees and banksias- if you are lucky wallabies will visit. Metres from the beach. Water clear, smooth, and you can walk along it for ever.
