This exceptional home really ticks all the boxes! Located just 150 metres from one of the best beaches on the Island, and only 1 km from the heart of town, "Left at the Penguins" is the ideal place for you and your family to spend your next holidays - and the next, and the next... Because once you've experienced this delightful home, you'll keep coming back, year after year.

The space

Inside this delightful home you will find most of the basic items you will need to have a great holiday, including such things as hand soap, hand towels, tea towels, paper towel, serviettes, toilet paper, tea, coffee, sugar, cling wrap, foil, baking paper, plus most other kitchen utensils and cleaning products.

All beds are equipped with pillows, doonas and doona covers. Guests are required to provide their own linen unless otherwise arranged. All linen, including top & bottom sheets, pillowcases, towels & bathmats can be provided, with beds made up before arrival and stripped after departure, for a minimal fee. Linen hire charges: $30 per Queen bed and $15 per single bed/ bunk. Charges apply per stay.

"Left at the Penguins" is a two storey home comprising three bedrooms, a bathroom and a laundry at ground level, and a master bedroom - complete with WIR and en-suite - adjoining a huge family living area, comprising a fully equipped kitchen, a spacious dining area and a vast lounge/TV area on the upper level. And if you feel like some fresh air, you just need to step out onto the generous balcony and bask in the afternoon sun.

But the best is yet to come! Nestled amongst the trees in the fully fenced back garden you'll find a magnificent gazebo, with a 4-burner BBQ and outdoor setting. The perfect place to spend those lazy, sun drenched Phillip Island afternoons and evenings.

And for boating and motorcycle enthusiasts, "Left at the Penguins" is ideally set up. Located just 1 km from Cowes boat ramp, the home has ample off-street parking for a boat as well as a car, and the single lock-up garage is the perfect place to park your valuable bikes.

We were a group of 11 people and stayed at this house for two nights. The location is great, it is only 10 minutes walk to shops like Coles or Aldi and the Esplanade and the beach are close, too. We really enjoyed the stay. The house was great, tidy, clean and very spacious...the perfect house for a big group! We would definitely recommend this house! Thanks Joel!!!
