Lovely and well appointed, the house was well maintained and had more than we expected in the kitchen.
Will definitely stay there again.
We holidayed here for 8 nights in December with our adult children and our dog Jimmy a Brittany.
Booking, paying and arriving was made super easy by the host Kasia, she promptly replied to all our messages and gave us helpful detailed instructions for our arrival and stay.
The house was clean, tidy and nicely decorated inside with a beach theme, providing all you could need for a great stay. The living area is nice and roomy for a family with a large 8 seater dining table and 2 large comfy couches with a lovely big screen TV.
We cooked most nights of our stay so the oven, stove top, microwave and BBQ all came in handy for us. Lots of utensils are provided but a few microwave containers and oven proof dish/trays would be welcome additions for those want to cook.
For us we found the bed a bit soft, but that’s a personal preference, our kids found their beds fine.
The bathroom was good, giving us all nice hot showers with good pressure. Just a little hot in the room with the heat lamps going in summer. (The light globe was missing so you had to use the heat lamp for light.) When we discovered the light was missing (plus a broken 4 slice toaster) we messaged the host. They had a few maintenance jobs fixing/replacing items they were planning to come do soon, so were aware. We asked if we could have a toaster for our stay and Kasia thankfully arranged for one to be dropped off – only a 2 slicer for 5 people but better than nothing.
The air con in the lounge was a welcome necessity for us - working well - we used it every day as the summer sun soon heated up the house with it off. The pedestal fans in all the bedrooms were also used daily.
Parking was excellent fitting our 3 cars plus a trailer with ease. The large yard is nice and secure for dogs with high fences surrounding it and 4 foot high fence/gates across the front - plenty of room for the dog to run around.
The rear shed was a great addition with the table tennis table for some fun, plus a dart board (once we bought some -the ones provided were broken) It was also good having the area to store our kayaks out of sight.
Location is great – only a 5 minute easy walk to the beach. We took the kayaks there most days plus the dog for a swim. This nearest beach is an on lead dog beach with dogs allowed at certain times in summer, but there is an off lead dog beach for any time of day – only a 10 minute drive away – which we enjoyed also. The shops (with Coles, Woolies, Aldi) and restaurants, are only a bit over a 10mins walk away.
All in all we all had a lovely week here at Nautical Mile Beach House – especially Jimmy our dog - thoroughly enjoying his beach holiday. We would happily come again and recommend it to others for a great pet friendly Phillip Island holiday. The only con for us, was a few minor maintenance issues that were missed which was a little disappointing, but if guests don’t alert the host or cleaner pick it up it makes it hard.
If you like a house to relax and have plenty of room, this is the house for you.
Felt like home when we've arrived. Everything is clean, comfortable and tidy. Shops were a 2 min drive. For my partner, she was satisfied with the showers and comfy beds. We really enjoyed the house.
I stayed here with my wife, young daughter and sister in law and we loved the place. The house is in a very quite neighbourhood and offered us the perfect opportunity to have a relaxed and quite holiday. The house also had everything we needed including toys for the little one to play which came in very handy for us. The good side also is every place you would want to visit in Phillip Island is just a short drive away including the shopping centre. We'll definitely return at some point.
