“Home from home but with luxury on top”
Reviewed 8 April 2014 via mobile

Great location, but what really sets this apart is the care and attention shown by our hosts. The email checking everything's OK a few days before arrival was a nice thought. Hot tub and a bottle of bubbly on arrival after a long drive was a real treat. The room has everything you need to make your stay complete whether you stay on the local beach or go to see the penguins. If we came back to Phillip Island we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.

Dear Gordon and Sue, what a great review that's really appreciated. It's good to see guests take time to visit our lovely shoreline, particularly our local spectacular Ventnor Beach ( only a two minutes walk down our quiet street ). We do try to give all our guests the home comforts and cosy atmosphere to make a peaceful relaxing break for them. kindest regards from Jeanette & Bill.

We chose to stay at Seas The Day after reading all the positive reviews on TripAdvisor and must say they were all absolutely spot on! Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by one of our hosts, Bill who showed us around the property and to our room. The gardens were really quite beautiful and very relaxing. The room was great, very comfortable and had everything you could possibly need or want (DVD's, books, binoculars, Aeroguard, Sunscreen, Penguin watching kit, drinks, biscuits etc etc). After a beautiful meal at one of the recommended restaurants we returned for an invigorating spa bath and complementary bottle of bubbly! The descriptions of the breakfasts in the other reviews just can't do the breakfasts justice. The breakfasts were huge (and I'm a big eater), fresh and very, very tasty. They encompassed but were not limited to cereal, croissants, doughnuts, fruit, yoghurt, toast, eggs (poached were fantastic!), bacon, sausage, tomato, mushrooms....do you get the picture? Our only regret was that we only had two nights to spend there. We will definitely be returning in the not too distant future.

A massive thank-you to Bill and his better half, Jeanette for a wonderful weekend!

Dear Greg and Rena,what a wonderful description of our cosy little guest house. Glad you had a good time and enjoyed our traditional, hearty home cooked breakfast. Driftwood Room has a lovely view of its own private garden, including a spectacular floral displays from a 40 yr old hibiscus bush and bird attracting Native shrubs. Thanks for your lovely review. All the best from Jeanette & Bill

Bill and Jeanette are exceptionly welcoming hosts. The rooms are cute with homely touches everywhere you look and breakfast was delicious. They have thought of everything, DVDs if the weather is wet, a penguin survival pack of blankets etc and even a hot tub. Bills gardens both private and communal are stunning. It removes you from the hustle and bustle completely. Set in the picturesque Philip Island do yourself a favour and visit seas the day bnb.

Dear Declan and Emma, what a great review. We aim to make our guests happy.We haven't got acreage but the way we designed our compact gardens enables them to have seclusion and romance . Our property also serves as an ideal retreat from the real world. A place to ponder, reflect and chill out. That's why many of our guests leave our place with smiles on their faces. Thanks, and we hope to see you again someday. All the best from Jeanette & bill.

Dear Maziar & Niousha, what a lovely review and, it's a great compliment for us when our cosy coastal guesthouse has such an impact on one night stayers. It sounds as if you had a really romantic evening and enjoyed our compact but lush gardens. Thanks and we look forward to greeting you again. Best wishes from Jeanette (head cook and bottle washer ) & bill (the egg man).

Spent four incredible relaxing and romantic days at Seas the Day B&B. Bill and Jeanette are the hosts that really made our stay magical. The breakfast was superb and they went above and beyond their roles as hosts in order to insure that our stay was perfect. Great location with easy access to secluded, local beach. We highly recommend everyone to stay at Seas the Day B&B.

Dear Fred and Keri-lee, so glad you discovered one of the best kept island secrets, our local stunning & peaceful Ventnor beach is just a 2-3 minute walk straight down our quiet street. We are pleased to receive such a glowing review from you, and after reading it, you obviously enjoyed our home cooked breakfast and didn't leave our place hungry...hope to see both of you next time you visit the island.

If you look at the reviews the Seas the Day have attracted it is difficult to say more.
Jeanette and Bill are the perfect hosts, we felt like we were meeting old friends, the saying arrive as strangers leave as friends was never more fitting. This was the only B&B of our two week trip but has opened my eyes as this was every bit as good as any 4-5 Star you will stay in as far as quality, cleanliness, and what a breakfast!!!
The attention to every detail by them both was outstanding, and the advice given to where to eat or visit was most helpful. They have a passion which shows through.
If we ever return to this area we will stay here, and for longer than the three nights we had.
One piece of advice forget booking anywhere else this is superb.
Thank you Jeanette and Bill from Donny & Karen

Dear Donny and Karen, your terrific review gave us goose pimples and we are so delighted you enjoyed your stay and left with full stomachs. Yes! Our secluded gardens are peaceful,except for chirping birds; and your own private Bali Hut amidst the lush palms and shrubs is a great shady place for an afternoon snooze. We loved having you here,all the best from Jeanette & Bill.

Actually, everything has already been said about this wonderful place on earth, but we feel the urge to join the praise.
As soon as we arrived and got to know our lovely apartment, the delightful eclectic garden and the kind owners we decided to add us another night.
Every day was just heavenly! Starting with the delicious breakfast with eggs to your liking (poached eggs are highly recommended!), French Press Coffee, fresh fruits, homemade muffins, crispy bacon, fried tomatoes and mushrooms, herbs from the garden etc. up to the uncomplicated help with our laundry and especially all the helpful tips for Phillip Island and beyond. Jeanette and Bill are simply wonderful hosts, born for this role and it is not least their unique personality that has made these wonderful stay a memorable stay. This is the place where we could be perfectly happy for the rest of our lives! Thank you

Dear Karin & Peter. What an awesome review. Greatly appreciated. When guests are happy we are happy, and we try to provide all the help, comforts, advice and service they require without them having to pay an arm and a leg for their stay at Seas the Day bed & breakfast, Phillip Island. I wish you hadn't mentioned Bill's eggs though, as his head is big enough already. Thanks again from jeanette and Bill.
