This recently renovated beach house is minutes walk from the best beach on the Island and close to the Grand Prix Circuit.
After a fun filled day enjoy a BBQ in the sheltered courtyard, have fun in the games room or relax around the cozy fire pit.
Smoking strictly outside
Dogs ok but please keep outside
We are an easy going couple and we love the beach and especially the surf, whether it is dodging boogie boards in Summer or rugging up and taking on the elements in Winter there is something raw and rugged about the ocean. Married with two teenage kids we have travelled to over 10 countries as a family while pre-kids we spent 2 years wandering the globe taking in the sites, sounds and smells of places such as Varanasi, Marrakech, Burkina Faso, Isfahan and Yogyakarta. It is all about the people and cultural experiences rather than the monuments when we travel.
We love food both simple roasts on a Sunday night or fine dining at some of Melbourne's best restaurants thanks to Carolyn's job in the food service industry where she schmoozes our most regonised chefs as part of her job.
We have been coming to Smiths Beach for over 20 years ever since Carolyn's dad moved from Melbourne to the Island as part of a Sea change. He has settled into the Cowes community and is at hand if you need anything. As a host we want all our guests to feel at home and the casualness of the shack is a perfect foil to the hustle and bustle of Melbourne.
Our dog Lexy loves the beach and refuses to get in the car for the journey back to Melbourne. Once we coax her into the car she suffers severe depression for the next week. Mind you I think the whole family feels somewhat depressed leaving our little piece of paradise.
