About the property

With four bedrooms and two separate living areas, Surf Dreaming offers spacious and comfortable accommodation for both families and groups. Located in Cowes, the house is positioned with easy access to surf beaches, the GP Circuit, the Nobbies Reserve, the Penguin Parade, and is a short walk to the RSL and the IGA for essentials.

The kitchen is fully equipped and, as part of the open plan dining / lounge room, is a lovely light filled space leading onto the north facing balcony. On those chilly evenings enjoy relaxing in front of the fire; this house is comfortable across all seasons. Downstairs is the 'kids zone" with a large screen TV, DVD, Xbox 360, board games and a billiard table. With a split system air conditioner it can be cool or warm as desired.

Downstairs opens onto a fully enclosed deck which, with the large yard, trampoline & cubby house, is a great space for the kids to play in. The downstairs deck also houses the outdoor setting for 10 and the BBQ.

The four bedrooms comfortably sleeps 10 with pillows, doonas, weave blankets and linen supplied. Bath towels can be provided at an additional cost. The house offers a main bedroom with Queen bed and ensuite, a second Queen bedroom, 2 bedrooms with trio bunks (double down and a single bunk up) with a single bed in one of the bunk rooms and a fold out double sofa bed downstairs offers further separate sleeping options.

A number of bikes of various sizes are provided; please bring your own helmets and wear them when riding the bikes. Cowes is a lovely town to ride around (and not too hilly). The bikes are in a locked, secure place where you can also leave your own bikes and surf / boogie boards etc for the duration of your stay. We also provide a port-a-cot and high chair.

There is plenty of room for off street parking for boats, bikes and cars.

"We had a great time, thank you so much.

The set up of the house is great perfect for a group like us...

I have used stayz quite a few times now for different holidays but never have I come across someone as accommodating as you. You have been absolutely amazing to deal with and so flexible with check ins and outs. It's really nice to see someone who loves the house so much and wants everyone to have a great time.

Thank you"

The split level home worked really well with the games area down stairs. There were lots of entertainment options. Great working kitchen. The home was nice and spacious and was exactly as depicted in the photos.

Other Activities:

Penguin Pararde

10 minutes along the road to the World Acclaimed Penguin Parade

5 mins to Grand Prix GP Circuit

I'd advise you drive past the Penguins and go have a look at the Nobbies at the point of the Island. From here you can view the cliffs and waves from a boardwalk, search for Seals on Seal Rock. It is a great experience.

There are a number of diverse walks around the Island: boardwalks through the wetlands, a sweet walk into a bird watching haunt at Swan Lake, and of course along the beaches.
