Overview

About the property

The Light Keeper's Cottage

This stunning recently renovated five bedroom home has two large living spaces and is the perfect spot for a relaxing holiday or weekend escape. Located in a quiet street this original Edwardian Cottage has been meticulously renovated to create a contemporary light filled, split level beach house with sweeping views of Swan Bay.

It's a short walk to the beautiful Santa Casa (Nun's Beach) and to the Queenscliff shops and restaurants. The beach is perfect for young families as it is quiet and peaceful, with gentle waves and rock pools to explore.

The home has been designed by a family for families and is perfect for entertaining. It provides a great option for groups of adults or two/three families to enjoy everything Queenscliff has to offer. It's ideal for a girl's escape, book club retreats, crafting groups, and golf groups. The cottage is toasty warm in winter and oh so cool in summer.

With separate zoned living spaces you can relax while the kids play freely in the spacious secure back yard or chill out in the downstairs rumpus room. You on the other hand are toasting your toes in front of the open fireplace or enjoying a glass of wine on the private outdoor deck.

The Light Keeper's Cottage has two decadent bathrooms, one with a deep luxurious bath to die for and two extremely indulgent showers to wash away the sand.

Upstairs there is a bright open plan living dining area, with beautiful views of Swan Bay, a fully equiped kitchen, open fireplace and lovely outdoor deck with a table and chairs.

Downstairs there is a second living space which opens out to a large sunny deck with gas barbecue and plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the sun in a secure backyard.

Thanks for providing a beautiful spacious accommodation with lovely views. The house was well equiped to meet all our needs. We came together as family and friends and had plenty of space for everyone.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

This property was even better than we expected...spacious, light-filled, comfortable beds and in a great location. And ten adults didn't fill it! Somehow this cottage has character and loads of sleeping and living spaces. 'Would love to come back for a longer stay in this gorgeous house in lovely Queenscliff, another time.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at The Lightkeeper's Cottage. It is a beautiful house and well appointed. It was very warm and comfortable for our winter week-end get away. The large spacious living areas were great as we had a family gathering and it suited the different ages. It is in a great location, close to the beach, shops, restaurants...

We thoroughly enjoyed our family weekend away. Excellent position. Lots of fun things to do, we enjoyed the open fire and watching the sunset from the deck upstairs. Will try and visit again.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

Relaxed the moment we walked through the door.

Pictures are accurate. Great property for large groups.

Even though we didn't require anything the extra supplies in the butlers pantry were generous/appreciated.

We'll definitely be back
