Bedrooms 2
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 1 - 5 nights


About the property

Exceptional full water views in an immaculate and comfortable luxury apartment.

Arcadia offers a rare experience in Victoria - there's only open fields between you and the beach and the view. No roads, no traffic, just fields, cliff, beach and then the wild Southern Ocean. The view just dominates everything, bringing an immediate and lasting feeling of peace, and relaxation.

You will notice the price does not reflect the quality of the apartment.

We have set the apartment up with the most beautiful and comfortable pieces to ensure that the view is matched by the apartment experience.

Crisp white bed linen plus quality cutlery and crockery.

There are 2 bedrooms with new, super-comfy mattresses and snuggly doonas. Both have that ocean view. The main has a log-effect fire.

The kitchen looks over the lovely dining table, out to the large balcony... and that view!

The walls have original artworks, echoing the view of the wild ocean and sky. There are quality fittings throughout, with a gas hotplate, electric oven, and microwave -should you wish to cater. If not, there is a huge array of great restaurants nearby in San Remo and all over Phillip Island. Some great wineries too.

If you need internet there is a free internet spot within walking distance where you can enjoy great coffee or a glass of wine as you work.

San Remo is tucked away, before the bridge to Phillip Island, so you miss the traffic hassles in holiday or GP season. You drive in to the private car park, walk to our same-level apartment, and open up to that view.

It's ideal for a getaway for rest and relaxation, for a bit of romance, or a week or weekend with close friends. Close to all Phillip Island has to offer. Penguins, surf, beaches, grand Prix, etc.

The balcony is spacious, and probably where you'll spend most of your time, looking south. Kangaroos and Eagles abound.

The bathroom is large, and well fitted out. A full laundry, if you need it.

You can walk about 900m to the beach below, or drive and park at the end of Potter's Hill Road, and just drink in that view.

The lounge has comfortable couches to snuggle on or read, with a TV and DVD player if you wish. We are heated and air-conditioned for comfort.

Arcadia is a short drive from Melbourne, a very short drive from the southern, eastern suburbs with little traffic.

A luxury spa and relaxation massage facility is in easy walking distance. A great restaurant overlooking the water is also a short walk or drive away.

Indulgent hampers available on request.

All in all, this is a lovely, peaceful, invigorating experience.

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

Property was in fairly good condition on arrival. Cutlery was a little grimy. Owners were extremely accomodating and warm/welcoming. Great information provided and absolutely gorgeous night sky. An absolute must for couples.

Loverly unit but absolutley no parking for two nights

  • 3 of 5

The unit is beautifully presented and views are as described, but be warned, parking is its Achilles heal. When we arrived we couldn't get near the unit due no parking spaces available so had to lug our gear over 200 metres several times. Went to Cowes for dinner (a Tuesday night)and no parking again when we returned. Had to improvise and park on grassy verge 300 metres away. Same next night. Units each need allocated parking spaces. Wont be back!

Owner's Response: Thank Peter, We are glad you enjoyed the Apartment and the views. Sorry you had parking issues. However, just to clarify the furthest park is about 100 meters away. Often when we travel anywhere we find our car parks much further away than 100 metres. Keeps us fit! For Arcadia no parking has never been an issue before, as there is always parking in the off-street private car park. Unsure what was going on, but sorry for any inconvenience. Kind regards, Tim and Lia

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful piece of paradise,

This apartment has been tastefully fitted out to a very high standard.

Comfy beds and lounge , clean and fresh.

sleep with the cool ocean breeze and the distant rolling of the waves , then wake refreshed to see the wandering kangaroos and soaring eagles looking for their breakfast with a delicious coffee.

hosts give clear and exact instructions for entry to the property.

Thank you Tim and Lia.

we will be back

Beautiful property overlooking the San Remo coast

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four nights in this beautifully maintained apartment, and we

loved how quiet and peaceful the setting was. Overlooking the reserve, we were treated to mobs of Kangaroos with their Joeys in the evening, and large eagles soaring above made it a perfect backdrop for drinks on the balcony.

Great communication in the leadup to our arrival, and we recommend this property for anyone looking for a relaxing place to stay!
