Raven Cottage- The perfect island escape

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Raven Cottage is a fully self-contained, chalet-style timber cottage set amidst low Melaleuca scrub and backs onto dense Mallee woodland, which abounds in wildlife. The rear deck is especially suited to bird watching or feeding the resident possums and wallabies whilst cooking your latest catch of fish on the BBQ.

The cottage is sheltered from the superb Vivonne Beach, which can be heard at night and is only a few minutes walk away. Vivonne Bay beach has been voted the best beach in Australia and is ideal for fishing, surfing or just strolling hand in hand.

Vivonne Bay jetty, a few minutes away by car, offers catches of tommy ruffs, garfish, whiting, trevally, salmon and squid. Eagle rays and the occasional shark can also be viewed cruising by the jetty.

The Harriet River is only 100 metres away from Raven Cottage through light mallee and melaleuca scrub. The river abounds in black bream and even delicious marron can be caught at times. Kayaks and canoes can be hired for a delightful tour on the river itself.

Raven Cottage is centrally located for the island's major natural attractions including Seal Bay, Raptor Domain, Kelly Hill Caves, Flinders Chase National Park, Remarkable Rocks, Admirals Arch and the Little Sahara’s.

Quaint, romantic and cosy! Sleeps up to 4

Warm, cosy and close to the coast

  • 5 of 5

We loved being immersed by the encroaching scenery and native fauna. Perfect location with an easy two minute walk to the beaitiful Vivonne Bay. Comfortable and toasty beds. Not to mention the great range of tunes on the CDs provided. We were not disappointed!

Small cottage

  • 4 of 5

Good location to explore the island, warm and cozy, though very small main bedroom, uncomfortable mattresses, no hand towel and soap supplied in the bathroom. An added blanket would have been nice since we are not the type to leave the air conditioning on all night, it was really cold.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments Francoise, they will be used for future upgrades to the cottage. We will speak to the cleaner regarding spare blankets as they are usually there.

The Hideaway

Quaint and full of character, but a little small. Main bedroom mattress was uncomfortable. Other than that, a great location with a pleasant environment.

We had a great 4 days in Raven Cottage. It is very well equipped for self catering. A very comfortable cottage deep in the shade of the coastal vegetation.The bedroom is very small.

Cute cottage with wallabies at the back door

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is nestled in quiet bushland near the beach. It was well equipped for cooking, reading, playing board games, and relaxing. We played music (Van Morrison) using the CD and CD player in the cottage, which seemed to give the wallabies the green light to hop out in front of the cottage looking for food :) The beds were comfortable and bathroom clean. Overall, a very nice place to stay near beautiful Vivonne Bay!
