About Karen McQuilten
Wayne and I have four children and two grand children. Smiths Beach is a perfect location for our whole family to get together, relax and have fun. We love spending time at the beach or having a barbecue on the deck at Dolphin Cottage. Phillip Island is a great location with so much to do and we love being able to share our house with others.
Why Karen McQuilten chose Smiths Beach
I love being immersed in nature. Staying at Dolphin Cottage is like living in a tree house with wonderful views of the natural environment from all windows. I like to sit on the deck in the morning enjoying a cup of coffee and listen to the bird song and waves. If I am in the mood to read I will bring a chair onto the easement at the back and look at the farm where I can observe the birdlife that take advantage of the large dam. From time to time the cows will come to the fence and you can usually see wallabies in the mornings and evenings. Dolphin cottage is only a short stroll to the safe swimming and surfing beach which is patrolled by Lifesavers during the summer months. If you walk east along the beach at low time you can explore the rugged coastline and rock pools on the way to Sunderland Bay. If you are feeling energetic you can keep walking all the way to Cape Woolamai. Wayne is a keen cyclist and there are bike paths that connect Smiths Beach to Cowes, Rhyll and San Remo. One of the nicest rides is to Rhyll via Oswin Roberts Koala reserve and the Rhyll wetlands.
