About Swan Cove on Raymond Island
Yoga teacher, nutritionist and mother of three amazing human beings. My partner Tony and I live here at Swan Cove where we grow vegetables, fruit and flowers. Tony is a 'man of the land' and has an amazing affinity with the wildlife. I am very grateful to have loads of energy and an insatiable appetite for learning. Our world is a magical place full of abundance and wonderful people.

Why Swan Cove on Raymond Island chose Raymond Island
We came across this property while kayaking around the island one Easter. I have always dreamed of a Tudor house with a seaside garden. Now we have the entire Gippsland Lakes as our backyard! Every day is an adventure; whether it's foraging for mushrooms in the autumn, paddling with the dolphins or rescuing someone whose boat has capsized in the lake. We love both the opposites of wildness when the wind whips up on the water in contrast to the perfect stillness and sunshine. Connecting with nature in all its glory we discover true liberation.
What makes this Cottage unique
The house was uniquely built and handcrafted by a German couple, the original owners. The leadlight windows in the main house bear Carl's signature. Look out for the many examples of his wrought iron work in lamps and doors. Ingrid made the cushions, curtains and established the gardens. Everything you see was made by their own hands. Carl even had the foresight to have the power lines put underground so there are no lines or fences detracting from the natural vistas.

A step back in time, unique comfortable cottage. Don't expect heaps of room. But the location was superb. The weather was against us for our stay and there's nothing you can do about that. The visit to Raymond Island was worth it.
Thanks Kirsten and Tony.
The perfect break
We were in desperate need for a relaxed, stress-free summer holiday, and Swan Cove fitted the bill perfectly. Owners Kirsten and Tony were very accommodating, and made us feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The characteristic property with private beach, together with the abundant natural wildlife around really made for the perfect holiday. We will gladly stay again.
Thank you Andrew, really appreciate you taking the time to review our property
Perfect peace - cosy quaint cottage amongst the trees
We had a very short break on Raymond Island - this was the perfect place to stay if you want perfect peace and quiet amongst the trees, with the sounds of birds, animals and the sea and NO traffic. The quaint rustic cottage was comfortable and cosy. Hosts Kirsten and Tony are very friendly and welcoming. We plan to return
Thank you for taking the time to review our cottages. So helpful to other guests. Kind regards Kirsten.
Beautiful cottage house
We enjoyed our stay at the Swan Cove, it was peaceful, and relaxing. With the lake just metres away, the walks along the lake was nice. Riding around the island with the push bikes provided was great, lots of wildlife to see especially koalas and kangaroos. Will come back for sure! Perhaps in summer for Kayaking and fishing.
Thank you for taking the time to review us, we really appreciate it to help our future guests.
Tranquil and full of wildlife.
Swan Cove is a lovely place to stay. The owners are particularly delightful and very helpful. This is our second stay. Raymond Island is a great place to enjoy seeing wildlife especially koalas. The cottages whilst not modern are warm and comfortable.
Koalas, kangaroos, echidnas, parrots, sea horses, moon on the water, campfire on the beach, prawning in summer.
