The Homestead at Surf Beach was the first house to be built in the area and has been seducing guests with it's unique charms since 1999. This large, historic house has been fully renovated, extended and landscaped throughout to bring you a classic mix of old charm with modern conveniences.

The house is set on three quarters of an acre close to the beach giving it sense of space. It has six bedrooms, polished baltic pine and hardwood floors throughout, 2 bathrooms, 3 living areas, extensive new kitchen and large full length covered verandah.

There are 6 bedrooms; 3 queens, 2 double and 8 singles. The bedrooms are set up as follows:

Bedroom 1: Double and single

Bedroom 2: Queen and single

Bedroom 3: Queen and single

Bedroom 4: Bunks 2 singles

Bedroom 5: Double, single and bunks

Bedroom 6: Queen

The kitchen is very large and fully equipped with a 5 burner gas stove, Large electric oven, microwave, double sink, 2 fridges, new dishwasher, coffee maker, every utensil under the sun and more then enough plates and cutlery for a large group. There is also a breakfast bar at one end of the long counter.

Outside there is a barbecue area with an outdoor eating area. The barbecue is a four burner hooded one and there is always a full spare bottle of gas.

At the front of the house is a huge covered and enclosed verandah that runs the length of the house. Four of the bedrooms and the front lounge room have opening double doors onto it. There is a long dining table for el fresco dinning and spectacular views to Bass Strait and Westernport Bay. The space is so large that there is also several lounge suites to socialise and relax on.

Sensational surf beach is a 100 metres down the road. Here you can walk 6 kilometres to Cape Woolamai in one direction and 2 kilometres to Sunderland bay in the other. The beach has a mixture of sandy areas, rocky out crops and surf at the point.

There is a large fire place with an abundant supply of wood in the back lounge room making it perfect for cool winter nights or even just for ambiance at other times. The front lounge room has a gas heater and all the bedrooms have electric heaters in them. There are electric blankets on all queen and double beds and a few single beds as well.

One of the features that guests love, and continually comment upon, is the outside shower stall. Of course it has hot water and a shabby chic construction surrounded by ever green shrubs and plants. Not only perfect for the post swim rinse down, it can be enjoyed anytime of the day.

There is ample parking for cars at the front and rear of the property. Plenty of room for a trailer as well

The house is 150 metres from the Surf Beach "bottle-o" which sells your daily needs such as papers, milk, bread, general bits and bobs as well as alcohol. There is a bus stop here as well with buses to Cowes, San Remo, Melbourne and stops in between.

For weekend bookings, guests may arrive anytime Friday and depart anytime Sunday if the house doesn't have back to back bookings.

The house is situated at the narrowest point of Phillip Island, on the top of the hill at Surf Beach. This position creates views to the North of Swan Bay and Westernport Bay. Views to the East and South of Cape Woolamai, Bass Strait and Pyramid Rock.

Everyone who has been to this house, loves it It is character personified. It is close to a wonderful beach. It has space. It has everything that you could possibly need for a perfect holiday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Weekender We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at The Homestead. A beautiful house, amazing grounds for the kids to explore, vast verandahs for relaxing and only minutes walk from the beach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic ! Fantastic house, with plenty of room for a large group. Set on a large block that the kids and adults both enjoyed exploring. Large eating area and kitchen made meal preparations a breeze. Walking distance to the beach and the shop. The outside shower was a hit with all the kids too! Simon( owner) was prompt and easy to deal with in all booking matters, making the whole process that much smoother. Highly recommend and hope to stay again :)
