With four bedrooms and two separate living areas, Surf Dreaming offers spacious and comfortable accommodation for both families and groups. Located in Cowes, the house is positioned with easy access to surf beaches, the GP Circuit, the Nobbies Reserve, the Penguin Parade, and is a short walk to the RSL and the IGA for essentials.

The kitchen is fully equipped and, as part of the open plan dining / lounge room, is a lovely light filled space leading onto the north facing balcony. On those chilly evenings enjoy relaxing in front of the fire; this house is comfortable across all seasons. Downstairs is the 'kids zone" with a large screen TV, DVD, Xbox 360, board games and a billiard table. With a split system air conditioner it can be cool or warm as desired.

Downstairs opens onto a fully enclosed deck which, with the large yard, trampoline & cubby house, is a great space for the kids to play in. The downstairs deck also houses the outdoor setting for 10 and the BBQ.

The four bedrooms comfortably sleeps 10 with pillows, doonas, weave blankets and linen supplied. Bath towels can be provided at an additional cost. The house offers a main bedroom with Queen bed and ensuite, a second Queen bedroom, 2 bedrooms with trio bunks double down and a single bunk up with a single bed in one of the bunk rooms and a fold out double sofa bed downstairs offers further separate sleeping options.

A number of bikes of various sizes are provided; please bring your own helmets and wear them when riding the bikes. Cowes is a lovely town to ride around and not too hilly. The bikes are in a locked, secure place where you can also leave your own bikes and surf / boogie boards etc for the duration of your stay. We also provide a port-a-cot and high chair.

There is plenty of room for off street parking for boats, bikes and cars.

"We had a great time, thank you so much.

The set up of the house is great perfect for a group like us...

I have used stayz quite a few times now for different holidays but never have I come across someone as accommodating as you. You have been absolutely amazing to deal with and so flexible with check ins and outs. It's really nice to see someone who loves the house so much and wants everyone to have a great time.

Thank you"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely home in Philip Island We loved our stay at Surf Dreaming. It is a lovely and cosy house. The house is big and spacious and great for big group or family. Mel is helpful and responsible. Due to some issue, we couldn't use the washing machine which is a disappointment but overall is a good stay and we loved the living room on the 2nd floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent property We loved our stay at Surf Dreaming. It catered for all ages of children and having a downstairs area for the kids and an upstairs area for the adults was perfect. The house was clean, the kitchen was modern and everything we needed was there. Thanks to Mel and Matt for their communication and help when needed, we will definitely be back.
