The Boatbuilder’s Workshop

Adults-only cottage in Surf Beach
The Boatbuilder Workshop Surfers Point Phillip Island This stone cottage, formerly a boat builders’ workshop, has been carefully converted to a secluded private apartment so close to the beach you can hear the waves. Surfers Point beach is but a short walk away as are the delightful rock pools, and the spectacular Forest Caves At sunset in summer the migratory shearwaters fly in from the ocean to their burrows in the dunes - a spectacular sight against the backdrop of the ocean sky at dusk.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely cottage in great position
Loved the light and spaciousness of the cottage. It was well equipped and very near several beaches. Our hosts were very hospitable and we would love to return.

5/5 Excellent

Amazing trip
This property is a gorgeous little cottage everything is clean and modern and for a 1 br its actually very spacious. My daughter and I had the most amazing time in Phillip island there is so much to see and do especially for families. We could walk to the beautiful surf beach and the boat builders workshop is in a central location on the island so it wasnt far to any of our planned activities. The only thing we wouldve changed is that it was over way too soon! We will be back, excellent accommodation 5 stars in all areas!

5/5 Excellent
