Kilcunda is a CRACKER of a small coastal town (with a well kept secret feel).

Perched on the pristine and rugged coastline & less than 1.5 hours from Melbourne (shhhh)…... it is an effortless escape.

Callithea is a cozy cottage with a European heart & a playful soul. A RIPPER view and a soothing aesthetic.

Freshly painted on the inside (Nov 2014) it feels crisp and clean. The original artwork is bright and engaging and adds flavour.

Managed by Stayz NATIONAL Award Winners 2014 and 2013- Liptrap Loft, booking is easy and the process streamlined.

Sleeps 4 (or up to 6 by arrangement)

One minutes walk to the cliffs/sea and The George Bass Coastal Walk. Stunning.

Callithea means "Beautiful View" in Greek.

Perched high with with 180' stunning views over Bass coast coastline, and rural green pastures (complete with cows grazing) its a beautiful view in any language.

Look out to the South-East over Bass Straight from Kilcunda surf beach all the way down to Cape Patterson and to the native rugged foreshore to the South.

Take in the rural outlook over the deep green pastures- shimmering gold in Summer- to the North West. Watch a most romantic dreamlike sunset into the horizon. The diversity of scenery is incredible.

The House:

Downstairs there is an open plan living/dining are with a Coonara wood heater (wood supplied), 1 bedroom with a double bed, a bathroom with separate toilet, a functional kitchen with electric stove and microwave oven and a separate laundry with a washing machine.

There is a futon couch that can be used for an additional bed if necessary.

An elegant wooden staircase leads up to a small sitting area (parents retreat) and into the Master bedroom with a double bed, an en-suite with a spa-bath, a shower and a toilet.

The view from the top bedroom is stunning. It is the ocean frontage view that you dream about, uninterrupted ocean and rural views 180 degrees.

Kilcunda - An Ideal Holiday Base

Kilcunda is a sleepy beach village which still has an undiscovered hidden secret feel. An easy 117 km from Melbourne.

It is just 10 minutes from Phillip Island (and 14 km from Wonthaggi)

The Kilcunda Pub (Ocean View Hotel) which is famous for not only a fabulous view of the coastline from the front deck, but also great food and hospitality, and a cosy atmosphere and fire in winter.

Kilcunda is a supurb base for walkers. A stone throw from the house is the George Bass Coastal Walk. A spectacular path that winds it way along the rugged Bass Strait to San Remo (7km). The scenery along this coast is stunning. I t is a challenging walk across cliffs with the ocean swell crashing on the below to remote pristine beaches. There is also a rail trail that runs from Kilcunda along the coast toward Wonthaggi. It is fairly flat so idea for bike riding, but great for walkers too. There is other rail trails to explore right through Gippsland.

The lively General Store next door to the Pub has basic grocery items, organic take away food and a dine in café.

Kilcunda and Shelley beach provide plenty of good surfing, snorkelling, boogie boarding, rockpools and protected inlets for families.

Good fishing is had from estuary(Powlett River), surf or rocks.

There's been dinosaur fossils found between Kilcunda and Inverloch, so rock pool searching could reap great rewards.

Phillip Island is one Australia's most visited tourist attractions.

Discover why.

It is not just the stunning scenery, gorgeous beaches, walks, Nobbies, Seal Rocks, Penguin Parade, Ferry rides on the bay, Churchill Island and its history.

There are great eateries and interesting shops and galleries. Hot sone massages and pampering. Children will love the Chocolate Factory and Amaze'n'Things and 10 pin bowling. Visit the wildlife sanctuaries to feed the kangaroos and and cuddle the koalas, Feed the pelicans at San Remo Jetty.

The Penguin Parade is without a doubt a childhood memory that no one will forget.

Enjoy the quiet of Kilcunda with the entertainment of Phillip Island just minutes away.

The first photo is by Internationally renowned photographer Bill Gekas. Bill stayed at Callithea with the intention of creating this photo with the powerful backdrop of the George Bass Coastal Walk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peaceful & relaxing. We are already looking forward to revisiting beautiful Kilcunda and staying again at the Callithea Beach house. A lovely relaxing place to unwind. Quiet and peaceful with wonderful views, especially from the upstairs bedroom and sitting area. Open and light, you have a sense of being outdoors. Great value. Fabulous service from Fleur....thank-you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Great location in an open house with an open fire. We stayed in the winter and were looking to chill, cook nice food and go for walks. We drove to Wilson's prom and had a beer in the local pub, Great holiday for chilling and taking in the breathtaking sights of the cliffs and the beaches. I would definitely recommend a stay here.
