Fodor's Expert Review Glen Isla House
230 Church St., Cowes, Victoria, 3922, Australia
A beautiful, safe swimming beach is right at the doorstep of this luxurious B&B, which contains six individually themed rooms. There's also a separate heritage suite with a four-poster bed and open fireplace, and a modern, self-catering two-story cottage with full kitchen that sleeps up to four. Hosts Ian and Madeleine Baker live in an adjoining historic residence that was transported from the United States in the late 1800s and served as one of the island's original homesteads. The property has extensive terraces, lush gardens, and a delightful summerhouse. The gourmet breakfasts include Ian's homemade fruit compote.
