DESCRIPTION: on their site
Lovely Single bedroom cottage with queen bed and two single beds. Fully self contained with kitchen and lounge room and private bathroom facilities.
Top location on the Lighthouse station grounds. Out the back door you're just 15 steps away from magnificent views of Bass Strait. Perfect sitting at sunset with a glass of champagne
A separate lounge room off the bedroom, a full kitchen with all the modern facilities, separate bathroom and toilet, with reverse cycle heating and cooling, makes this a very cosy getaway.
Romantic NO. Modern Facilities NO. Electric oil Heater NO, Clean NO. Views NO you look at the walls of the museum on one side. From the lounge one meter from the cottage window is public seating for having a picnic so no privacy if you remove the mouldy curtains. Don't expect your money back when you read of the modern facilities and charm only to find a dirty dump because they can lie but you don't have a leg to stand on when you challenge them. My advise take photos and report them to consumer affairs.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Set on 20 acres of grounds, the Cape Schanck Lighthouse was built in 1859. The lighthouse beam sits 100 metres above sea level, and took the Lighthouse keeper and his 2 assistants 72 turns of the clockwork mechanism to wind it up every 12 hours. The special crystal lens that is still in use was made in France in 1858, and was transported over the vast oceans via sailing ship. It is now valued at more than $5million. 59 circular steps lead up inside the 21 metre high lighthouse which gives spectacular views across the cliffs and ocean to Port Philip Heads in one direction and past Phillip Island to Cape Paterson in the other.Four Cottages occupied by former lightkeepers can now be your base while you explore the Mornington Peninsula. ... more less
