A 'Shebeen' was an illegal drinking house in old Ireland.

Holidays like they used to be: games of cricket in the big back yard; evenings spent on the deck having a BBQ; walk to the beach via bush and beach tracks. Only minutes drive to shops, restaurants and attractions

Perfect for two families, large groups, motor sports lovers, fishing and golfing trips.

*** Late Check Out Special*** - ask about 5pm Sunday check out on weekend bookings.

The house is basic so please don't expect 5 star. Clean, comfortable and cosy. We don't have a dish washer. Bed linen is supplied for the two queen and one double beds. You supply (BYO) towels and the linen for the bunk beds ( sleeping bags are handy). This linen can be supplied by arrangement and at extra cost - just let us know.

We are so pleased that Kathryn and her group enjoyed their stay. Kathryn was a pleasure to host, so appreciative and enthusiastic. She even coped with a malfunctioning tap. We look forward to welcoming Kathryn back again.

About the neighbourhood
Hobsons Pde. is in a quiet street in West Cowes, near Red Rocks Beach and Anderson St Boat Ramp. The street is so quiet, the local children often play cricket or skateboard in the street.

The property backs directly onto to the Cowes foreshore reserve, with an 8 minute walk via bush tracks leading you to the beautiful calm waters of Red Rocks Beach.

Great for swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, canoeing, fishing etc.
Watch out for the wallabies thru the reserve & the endangered hooded plover rookery when you get to the beach.
Getting around
Not great public transport options here. The Grand Prix shuttle bus has stop at the end of the street.

Parking is good, room for three cars in the drive - and in summer it is fine to park on the front lawn. It is a pleasant half hour walk into town along the beach and the Island has a taxi service.
Car advised
How to get there
About 1.5-2 hours drive from Melbourne.

Heading into Cowes, turn left at Church Street roundabout. Drive west along Church St for 2+ kilometres. Turn left at Justice Rd (brown tourist sign “The Nobbies, Penguin Parade”).

Then first right onto Hobsons Pde: No. 42 is on RHS near other end.
If traffic is very heavy into Cowes, turn left along Ventnor Rd. or Settlement Rd., then right into Justice Rd.
