Transport yourself to a Hansel and Gretel style cottage in a forest on an island where you can see wildlife up close in their natural environment. Only 4 hours from Melbourne. Imagine yourself relaxing in the hammock looking out to the lake and beach as time stands still and you breathe in the fresh sea air. We are very sorry pets are not permitted here due to sensitive nature of wildlife. We live permanently at the property in the main house to which the cottages are attached.

Der Wohnraum

Self-contained Tudor cottages were built about 30 years ago by a German craftsman and feature many unique features such as handmade headlight windows, handmade wrought iron light fittings and German tiles and wallpapers. Note: small bathroom is downstairs and bedrooms upstairs. The compact kitchen has full size fridge, caravan style cooker with 2 burners, microwave. We have a mix of rain and bore water, so you may like to bring your own water if you are used to fluoride and chlorine taste. We live permanently in the main house.

Zugang für Gäste

The Garden Cottage caters for 4 and the Beach Cottage, 6 people. The two cottages are interconnecting to cater for larger groups. We have a lovely hexagonal Gazebo outside, ideal for meditation or reading or an ideal space to enjoy the outside from a cosy space. Absolute water frontage, 10 acre garden flowing to the beach and lake. Secluded off a beautiful long winding driveway. Public jetty berth. Bushwalkers/birdwatchers paradise. Kayaks and bikes are provided.

Interaktion mit Gästen

Tony, Mia and I live in the main house at Swan Cove so we are here if you need any assistance or would like to explore the enclosed vege/chicken garden or need advice on bushwalking etc, otherwise we will leave you to your privacy.
If you need the laundry please ask as it is a shared facility. There is a clothes airer under the stairs.

Weitere wichtige Infos

Stop Press! Please note the main ferry is still out of service so transport to the island is by way of free water taxi. We will pick you up in our car and drive you to the cottage. You will need to leave your car in the designated secure car park in Paynesville. There is a free community bus on the island during this time.
Normally the ferry runs every 20 minutes from the Raymond Island side and more often at peak times and stops at midnight Fri/Sat night and 11pm weeknights. Cost is $12 return for cars and free for passengers and cyclists. There are no cafes/shops on the island, however we can provide a breakfast basket upon request, from $20 for two. Includes eggs from our heritage hens, home-made jams and granola, sourdough bread, greens and herbs from the garden. Sometimes we can provide dinner or even lunch but this must be booked in advance, cost is from $25 per head.

Swan cove is not a party house, people stay here for the peace and quiet of our abundant nature and wildlife. We do not allow pets due to the sensitive nature of the wildlife particularly the koalas. No smoking in the cottages and if you do smoke outside please dispose of cigarette butts in the bins as these are toxic to marine animals. Please note the cottages are back to back and loud noises will travel through the walls, so be respectful of other guests and keep noise to a minimum after 10pm.

Kirsten and Tony were awesome hosts. They couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly. The cottage is small but cute and clean and is located perfectly quiet on the island in a large garden with many lovely animals. Kayaking, biking over the island to see Koalas and Kangaroos and the the nice bar-B-Q place completed the wonderful time. And an extra point for providing a French press with real coffee.

The cottage is just great. It's like a journey back in time. We enjoyed our stay a lot. Especially the visiting kangaroos in the evening ;)

We had a wonderful short stay at the Cottage. Raymond Island is very beautiful and full of wildlife, we also really enjoyed the Koala Trail. Kirsten and her husband gave us a warm welcome and made sure we had everything we needed. The cottage itself is small but well equipped (remember to bring food as its self-contained and there are no stores on the island) and was ideal for our short stay. Thanks again for having us!

We had an amazing visit at Swan Cove. Kirsten and Tony were really helpful and kind during our visit, and made us feel at home. Swan Cove is a beautiful place which you definitely should pay a visit if you’re heading to Raymond Island.

我们这次碰到了汽车渡船停航,不过也让我们感受了一把当地人的生活方式,坐水上taxi过河,很新奇。Kirsten 和她漂亮可爱的女儿Mia特地从岛上过来接我们,开车带我们去找考拉和袋鼠,我女儿很喜欢Mia,缠着她,虽然语言不通,但相处很愉快。岛上人不多,但每个都很友好。她们家的房子很赞,漂亮、干净、设施齐全,居然还有电饭锅。稍作休整,Kirsten、她先生Tony和Mia带我们去她们家的农庄参观,让我们看到很多奇特的植物,然后告诉我们看日出、日落最好的地点。这真是a enjoyable day。
