Nice Cozy Cottage with Parking
Its a nice cozy place for 4 of us on a friends trip to Phillip Island. We got back late from dinner, the staff has left but left us a note as to where the key was. It would have been nice to give us a call since I left a local number with my booking. Internet is almost non existence. Close to the main stretch of Cowes. If you stay there check out the Italian Pizza place! Has heater / aircon. Only qualm is that for 4 of us, they gave really miniature size molton brown toiletries which were barely enough.
