The Light Keeper's Cottage

This stunning recently renovated five bedroom home has two large living spaces and is the perfect spot for a relaxing holiday or weekend escape. Located in a quiet street this original Edwardian Cottage has been meticulously renovated to create a contemporary light filled, split level beach house with sweeping views of Swan Bay.

It's a short walk to the beautiful Santa Casa (Nun's Beach) and to the Queenscliff shops and restaurants. The beach is perfect for young families as it is quiet and peaceful, with gentle waves and rock pools to explore.

The home has been designed by a family for families and is perfect for entertaining. It provides a great option for groups of adults or two/three families to enjoy everything Queenscliff has to offer. It's ideal for a girl's escape, book club retreats, crafting groups, and golf groups. The cottage is toasty warm in winter and oh so cool in summer.

With separate zoned living spaces you can relax while the kids play freely in the spacious secure back yard or chill out in the downstairs rumpus room. You on the other hand are toasting your toes in front of the open fireplace or enjoying a glass of wine on the private outdoor deck.

The Light Keeper's Cottage has two decadent bathrooms, one with a deep luxurious bath to die for and two extremely indulgent showers to wash away the sand.

Upstairs there is a bright open plan living dining area, with beautiful views of Swan Bay, a fully equiped kitchen, open fireplace and lovely outdoor deck with a table and chairs.

Downstairs there is a second living space which opens out to a large sunny deck with gas barbecue and plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the sun in a secure backyard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully Renovated Property We thoroughly enjoyed the weekend away at Light Keepers Cottage. The property has been beautifully renovated and excellent facilities for the adults and kids. It provided games for the children to play as well as movies. (unfortunately the weather was not good for our weekend however the kids had enough to do to occupy themselves). Its walking distance to main street and a nice stroll to the ferry. Loved it. Highly Recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great venue for a get away. Ideal accommodation for our family get together. The two family rooms worked for the mix of grandparents, parents, teenagers, and under 10s when getaway space was ideal for time outs. The backyard space was also good and the close proximity to the park made it easy for burning off some excess energy. Whilst we had the romantic notion of having a wood fire, we did not use it as the sun streamed in to the light filled family rooms, and the kitchen area and the pantry provisions catered for our every need. We highly recommend this accommodation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Great This house was one of the best we have used, spacious and beautifully appointed and in a superb location. Close to beach and town but in a quiet street, we were able to leave the car at home and walk. Sea and sunset views from the balcony were a beautiful end to each day.
