Walk to the Cowes beach - voted "Best Beach for Kids in VIC" Herald Sun 4/1/08

Just a few minutes walk leads you to the calm waters of the famous north facing Cowes Beach - perfect for long walks.

Endorsed as Victoria's Best beach for Kids - "The water is usually calm. The beach is wide, there's plenty of shade...and there's not too far to go to reach the main street." Herald Sun 4/1/12.

Stroll along the beach to the main street of Cowes where you can enjoy coffee or a meal, whilst soaking up the atmosphere of this seaside village. The Cowes boat ramp is just a minute's drive away and in good weather, enjoy breakfast or lunch right on the beach courtesy of the boat ramp cafe.

Within a short drive from the Grape Escape are the Penguin Parade, Koala Park, the quaint village of Rhyll, indoor children activities, historic Churchill Island, fabulous wineries and some of Australia's best surf beaches. The Herald Sun nominated the island's Woolami Beach one of "Victoria's Best Surf Beaches."

The island also boasts Victoria's "Best Rocks - at Cape Woolamai Forrest Caves is a series of caverns where sea has eroded the rocks...at low tide the headlands at Smiths Beach have plenty of rock pools to explore."

Phillip Island is a famous perfect summer getaway - yet the Grape Escape offers an equally relaxing experience any time of year. In the cooler weather there is nothing better than an invigorating walk on the beach followed by nights by the Coonara fire with a family game, good book or a good friend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A truly great escape The house was very well equipped and the instructions provided were comprehensive and easy to follow. The neighbourhood was excellent and the neighbours were friendly. An easy walk to the shops either through the streets or via the beach made for a relaxing break. Visits from native birds in the front garden was perfect for our international guests.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home away from home We loved our stay at grape escape, it was in the perfect location nice quite street but not to far to Main Street and beach. Plenty of room for the kids to relax and play outside. Anna was fantastic with communicating the process and had great information folder at the house. As my older kids said "it feels like a home away from home"
