Lovely beach house perfect for families
This was our second stay at Ventnor Beach Shack and we hope to return again. It’s the perfect place to base yourself in Phillip Island. Beautiful Ventnor beach is a few minutes walk away and Cowes a 10 min drive. Perfect for families with everything we needed. I loved sitting on the deck looking at the water. Communication with Sarah was excellent and she responded to questions when we were there. Thanks for having us.
Perfect family getaway. So glad we visited & would definitely return.
Loved the house’s retro beach vibe & it had everything we needed—a well stocked kitchen (including tons of pantry staples), games, comfy beds & towels. The location was perfect—easy walk to the beautiful beach, short drive to town & penguin parade. We really enjoyed all the wildlife & amazing views. It was a great spot to unplug, be together & enjoy exploring new surroundings.
It was such a pleasure Jordan and Co... you were a fantastic group and it's always wonderful to know you enjoyed Phillip Island - midweek is a really special time in Ventnor. Hope you return.
Top quality holiday home!!
This property was exceptionally clean and well thought out in terms of the bits and pieces available. The owner was extremely helpful with a few extra requests and the view from the huge deck overlooking the bay is delightful. At night we enjoyed a BBQ on the deck watching the lights over the other side of the bay. Great yard for children with an enclosed trampoline, close to the beach and super comfy. There was also plenty of room and no-one felt cramped. We will most definitely book to stay here again.
Annie, your group were exceptional guests! We are so happy that you enjoyed "The Shack" and Phillip Island. Many thanks and hopefully see you again.
Fabulous holiday abode
We stayed over Easter with our toddler and baby and had a great time. The house was as described - great views, lots of light, sun streaming through the northern windows (lovely spot for a nap for tired parents) and 5 minutes from the beach (close enough for our toddler to walk under his own steam). Plenty of room to spread out and a lovely quiet part of the island even during the Easter long weekend. The trampoline in the backyard is great for burning off some energy too. The split system heating kept the house warm during the nippy evenings while we enjoyed a tipple of wine and the great sound system. Kitchen well setup with everything required. Recommend, we hope to stay again some time.
Hi Jessica, so glad you enjoyed the property - and thanks for being great guests.
Great house near the beach
We loved our stay at Ventnor Beach Shack. The house had everything we needed and we loved being so close to the beach (short 5 min walk away). Its lovely sitting on the deck looking at the water. The local beach is really nice and my children (9 and 11) loved going there for swims, rockpooling and walks. We also drove to the surf beaches when we wanted some waves. Phillip Island is a great holiday location with so much to do. We loved the slow pace of things on the island and felt very relaxed after a week. Thanks so much!
