Stop Press During October & November the main ferry is out of service. A free water taxi will take passengers across to the island and the free community bus will drive you to our house. Otherwise we can come and pick you up but we have limited fuel during the outage. During this outage visitors will need to park their cars on the mainland where EG Shire has provided a secure car park.

This Tudor style house is located on one of the most beautiful places on Raymond Island, 6km's from the Paynesville township on 10 acres of bushland with tall trees in a parklike setting. Secluded off a beautiful long winding driveway, the house with it's two built in 2 storey cottages is but a few metres from the water's edge, has a safe sandy beach which stretches for miles on this side of the island. There is no road between the house and beach The Beach front Cottage accommodates 5 people and the Garden cottage accommodates 4 people.

This area in Gippsland is well known for its mild climate in winter, and cooling sea breezes in the hot summertime. It is surely one of the finest inland lake locations in Victoria, indeed Australia. It offers great variety such as swimming, bushwalking, sailing, boating, fishing, bowling and golf.

The prawns run right out the front in summer and the owners have available sea kayaks to explore the lakes system.

We offer truly peaceful, exclusive and tranquil surroundings in which to relax and be close to unspoiled nature.

Resident on this property are koalas, echidnas, family of tawny frog mouth owls, sea eagles and kangaroos and their babies. The name of the property is a tribute to all the birdlife including black swans, pelicans, albatrosses, spoonbills, ibises, caspian terns, crimson and eastern rosellas, swift parrots, blue wrens, flame robins, azure kingfishers and many more.

Yoga classes, meditation and nutrition assessments are available for those wanting to add wellness to their holiday.

Gourmet breakfast baskets from our garden including home made jams, muesli, eggs, sourdough bread etc can be provided by prior arrangement. From $20 for two people.

Massage, beauty treatments are available from Skin Solutions Clinic and Medispa at Paynesville.

Vehicular ferry from Paynesville costs $12 return trip. Bicycles and pedestrians are free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hidden Treasure Absolutely wonderful location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back again. It is a hidden treasure and allows guests to take a step back from their busy lives and just relax.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't Miss This Place! Swan Cove is a waterfront treasure! The property reminded me of an English Tudor home with retro 70's fittings but the property is German styled. There are two cottages and I loved their vintage kitchen decor. We were so very lucky to see & enjoy the architecture & finishes in the main house - this was truly a treat for us! We saw owls, koalas & kangaroos around the house and on the island. The birds feed from from your hands. This gem of a place is a wonderful example of healthy living & lifestyle - the welcome yummy slice that was left for us when we arrived was cacao topped and made from sweet potato. This stay is a unique experience not to be missed when in Victoria.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! I was looking for a quiet peaceful place to take my kids for a break. Felt at home as soon as we arrived. Kirsten is just lovely. It was all l asked for and more. Loved the kayaking and bike riding [both supplied by Kirsten and Tony]. We booked for 2 nights but due to the floods we could not get off the island. What a shame. To be stranded 4 nights at such a beautiful place. Must be fate. We are booked in again in January for 4 nights with my husband and his 3 kids. Can't wait!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serenity as its finest! The place is beautiful & so peaceful. Truly an amazing place for a getaway away from the city. Loads of activities for the whole family to do like swimming, fishing, kayaking, cycling, walking along the beach & the highlights of all is prawning. Kirsten & Tony are lovely hosts & very approachable. Would love to come back to this piece of paradise soon.
