Relax and unwind at this delightful beach side gem. Pooch and kid friendly, the house is perfect for gatherings of all shapes and sizes. Enjoy a crackling open fire in winter or a refreshing summer swim at nearby Smith's Beach. Literally five minutes walk to the beach and general store, the house is in a great little spot.
The house itself is spacious and has two large living areas, as well as a loft style master bedroom and ensuite. There are four bedrooms and two bathrooms (one with bath), including a kids room with two bunks and a trundle. Bubs are well catered for with portacot and highchair. There are beds for 11 people; we are happy to negotiate the odd extra. As well as an open fire and Coonara, the house has reverse cycle heating and cooling.
Fancy a surf, bike ride or spot of fishing? The house is well stocked with bikes, fishing rods, golf clubs, surfboards and boogie boards. Explore the much loved Island on foot or treadlie, it truly is nature's paradise. Foodies are well catered for, with great local eateries at Rhyll and Woolamai, including our favourite spot, the Island Food Store tucked away in Cowes. Enjoy a tipple or two at the Purple Hen Winery. Stock up on local produce at the monthly Churchill Island farmer's market. And don't forget the famous penguins, Pyramid Music festival and of course the international Motorcycle Grand Prix.
Exhausted by all that adventuring? Curl up by the fire with a good book and a game of Scrabble. Old school board games and a bookworm's collection add a dash of nostalgia to your stay. Unwind with some tunes - there's a docking station for your iPod and a bit of an 80's CD collection. There's also a DVD player, a stack of movies and an old school VCR. Blues Brothers anyone?
Summer or winter, it's a cool little place. We think you will love it.
