"Great Place" Stayed for a quick one night stay. Dealing with the owner was great. Made a mistake in the booking and she was very helpful to adjust the booking. Room is lovely old charm and very well maintained. Location is good. I could walk to dinner on the Main Street in Cowes. Bed was very comfortable and we had a great nights sleep. Stayed November 2015, travelled as a couple.... November 2015

"Perfect Phillip island Base" My husband and I stayed at Genesta House for 2 nights in May and could not have asked for a better place to stay. Susan was a wonderful host, so friendly and welcoming. She told us about Philip Island Wildlife Park and we are so glad she did as we were not aware of it and it is such a fantastic place! Great recommendation for the local Thai restaurant too. The house is charming, so cosy and in an ideal location close to the town and easy parking right out the front. Being May we were the only guests so Susan upgraded our room which was a lovely surprise. Our room was perfect - clean, very comfy bed and powerful shower. The port went down very well too. The veranda outside the rooms are perfect for warm evenings. 2 nights was perfect to see the whole of Philip Island and of course the Penguins. We would definitely stay here again... May 2015

"Base for penguin and koala visit" A fabulous guest house which i can't recommend highly enough. The decor, the welcome by the owner, the pretty garden and the opportunity to sit on the veranda at the end of the day sipping a complimentary glass of port made the stay excellent in every way ...

"Lovely" we stayed here for one night in the maple room. Lovely quaint room with ensuite bathroom, bar fridge and little extras like toiietries provided, tea and coffee, biscuits, and port. Close to the main beach of Cowes and quiet considering it is central and surrounded by other accomodation places.The gardens are beautiful. Sue the host is lovely and overall we enjoyed our stay overnight... March 2014
