About Glen Isla...

Annual Winter Recess Closure - PLEASE NOTE:

We are now closed to guests for our "annual winter recess" (as we do every year).

We normally close for a break and winter recess each year.  During this time, we also undertake our annual maintenance and deep cleaning (especially relevant during the 'coronavirus alerts').

We're here responding to emails and phone calls most days, and hope to welcome you to Glen Isla later in the year.  We will be adding availability and tariffs for the 2020-2021 season sometime in late August 2020 and expect to reopen to guests in late September this year. 

In the meantime we send everyone our best wishes for a safe and healthy winter.

Ian & Madeleine - Owners at Glen Isla House.


Glen Isla House is nestled amongst 2 acres of heritage gardens and oak trees of the historic Glen Isla homestead (c1870), and has direct beach access. 

All accommodations are purpose-designed as guest accommodations, feature elegant and unique classic interiors, a flat-screen TV and beautiful authentic heritage garden views.

For guests seeking more spacious accommodadions, an historic suite with a spa bath and fireplace is available, and there is also a 2-bedroom 'self-cater' cottage option with full kitchen facilities. 

(We advise that our accommodations are unsuitable for infants and young children)

Glen Isla House is a 15-minute drive from Phillip Island Nature Parks, where you can see wildlife including the world famous little penguins at the Penguin Parade (nightly at dusk), koalas up close and personal at the Koala Conservation Centre, and Australian fur seals off the Nobbies (by boat tour).  Phillip Island offers numerous nature walks, world-class bird-watching and a selection of swimming & surf beaches.

Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit is 15-minutes' drive, and Melbourne is a 2-hour drive from Glen Isla.

Like the beach?  A pristine sandy beach beckons just 100 metres directly out the back gate...
