Great place ”
Great place to stay with Young kids
Thanks Ho for your great endorsement!
Great 5 star apartment but”
Pros: -The apartment is super clean and just been renovated. Looks stunning. Has all the things you need from an apartment already being set up in it. The kitchen is fully and beautifully equipped for example. - 7 mins to the beach walking Cons: - Possibly due to the new carpet, there is a strong smell that triggered my child’s asthma and so we had go around looking for a local hospital to treat her at midnight. - the reception is located in another building so it was confusing to locate reception then to locate the apartment. All in all, great if you don’t have children with asthma, the apartment is well equipped, very modern and close to the beach. We were a family of 4 with older kids and the kids loved the place.
Thanks Adil for your reviewand regret the new carpet triggered your daughter's asthma. We are central reservations for our 3 properties and this is detailed on all confirmations. Oceanic is a 2 minute drive from Phillip Island Apartments and we are addressing the needs to return keys back to PIA and appreciate your observations.
Would not recommend for stay”
It is a small town, not many selection over that kind of pricing for a 2 room apartment. However, I learnt that the property owner has 2 other premium apartment. I would prefer to stay in those after learning the condition of Oceanic. Basically, only 1 toilet to share between 2 rooms apartment. It wasn't published anyway stating it. The dishwasher trip halfway through, the dryer not working. Overall, it was compensate by a understanding staff when I check out, offering a small amount of goodwill refund. I still don't feel the comfort of stay. Just my luck! Considering I had great time in Australia.
Thanks, Yeow for your review and as recent new management, and we are working with our owners on those apartments that need to improve our guest offering, so feedback assists with that process.
The kitchen ware and stove need to be upgraded as it kind of old. the overall stay at oceanic Apartment is good.
Thanks, Siew for your review. We are recently new management and guests comments will assist in chats we shall be having with our owners to enhance guests stays moving forward and for that we are grateful.
Very un clean”
Pros - location. Cons - obviously not cleaned well. Everything was dirty and clearly the blankets and bedding hadn’t been washed.
We are recently new management & thanks, Annaliese for your review, which assists us in forward direction with our owners to make sure the best possible accommodation outcome for our guests. The heads up on the blankets is appreciated - the bedding has mattress protectors and linen supplied by a commercial laundry, as are the pillowcases, towels etc
Perfect for a family break”
We stayed in the Oceanic for 2 nights with two small children. The apartment was very clean and spacious. It is in easy walking distance to the shops, restaurants, cafes and the beach. The on site parking was very convenient. Just be warned you will be woken early by the tweeting birds in the tree outside the bedroom window :) Overall a very nice stay and we would consider staying again.
Thanks Vanessa and glad you enjoyed your stay.
Great location but apartment could be cleaner”
Great location, but apartment could be cleaner. Stains on couches, dining chairs and carpets and rubbish underneath the couches. No lifts so if you're on the top floor, you'll be carrying luggages up the stairs. We had 2 young children so lots of luggages and carrying the kids too.
Thanks for your review, Lawrence. As recent new management, we are in the midst of steam cleaning of soft furnishings and carpets as required and to that end, guest feedback assists enormously as independant commentary to work closely with our owners to ensure a better guest experience wherever possible.
Didn’t meet staff. But great with email responses.
Thanks Linda for your great review score.
Unexpected Bad and no more for me”
Oven is not work, I can't boil some egg even put it hot water. Without notify me to collect the key before. Need to at the carpark entrance. No WIFI password gave to me when I check in. Requested by email, but gave me a incorrect password. I cannot use the WIFI. Dust everywhere. Reception not helpful and proactive. What a bad experience. No more for me.
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay and I appologise that you experienced so many problems. with your apartment We are always on hand to assist and I am not sure why you were not immediately moved to another apartment. Your comments have been taken on board.
Quiet and close to supermarket”
Location is good and quiet. Closed to few supermarket and restaurant. However, it is difficult to find with the GPS and have to pick the key up from another location.
Thank you for your review Joey. So glad you enjoyed the convenient location which is close to all amenities in Cowes Apologies if you had trouble finding us..
Stand alone apartment great for self catering ”
Pros- friendly staff at check in and over the phone, great location, generous sized apartment. Secure parking. Cons- check in is at a different location which is not made clear in confirmation. Not being staffed it was difficult to pass on any issues and the only contact information was on our booking as we had no apartment info. We called reception for wi fi and notified them that we had no venue info. I was going to write a note to leave with our keys but couldn’t find a pen! However the main light in our bedroom didn’t work, lamp in the lounge room was the same. Tea towel provided left fabric when used so all dishes that had been washed by previous guests were covered in fluff. For a serviced apartment plates, pans etc were adequate however nothing else, bring your own cooking oil, salt and pepper (shakers provided, not filled). Provided limited sachets of washing liquid and dishwashing powder, if staying more than 24 hours would need to bring more. Bath plug let water out.
Thank you for taking the time to review our property Ruth. We value your feedback. Apologies if the compendium was not visible in your room. There is always a staff member available if you encounter any issues, including after hours management.. We provide a starter pack upon arrival as the apartments are self catering. We hope you will stay with us again if returning to the Island.
Apartment is spacious and big. The amenities provided are very good.
Thank you Koh. We are pleased that you enjoyed your spacious apartment which is perfect for families.:).
The apartment is rather old and maintenance is very poor: door knob fell off, water tap fell off, light bulb is burnt and iron is broken!
Thank you William for your review and apologies for the poor experience. Your feedback has been passed on to the relevant team. We hope you will come back for a more positive stay with us next time!
Nice place to stay”
The apartments are relatively easy to find, just follow Google Maps. However, I wish I was told that the check-in office is not at the same location as the apartments. That would have been nice to know beforehand. However, after finding the office, the ladies there were very nice and helpful. Even though we were quite early, they still let us check in early. They were also helpful in providing useful information. Unfortunately, I was too sleepy to remember much. The apartment we got was on the 2nd floor. It has two bedrooms and a nice large living/dining room and kitchen. The place was clean and comfortable. But the place has no elevators so it was a struggle getting all our heavy suitcases and things up there. I wish we would have been asked if we preferred a lower floor room as there was no elevator. The bathroom was of decent size but lacking in shelves in the shower for shampoos and next to the sink for toothpaste and things. A final nitpick is the cooking range. It took forever to heat up to low heat and stayed at low heat.
Thank you King, for taking the time to review your stay with us and also for the kind comments. re, the staff. We are pleased that you found the apartment comfortable and have taken on board your constructive comments.

Nice location comfortable stay and really friendly staff!
Three good points that describe Oceanic on Thompson! Thank you Kar.
Facilities not up to par”
Reception is at a different address. Gate key was defective , so need to go back to reception at another address to get a replacement. Only 1 room out of the 3 rooms has an airconditioning unit. Can't connect to Wifi. No assistance from staff except some reassuring words everything is ok
Value for money”
Nice location with 10mins drive to Penguin Parade, but need to go down to different location for key collection. 3mins walk to Coles and Woolworth.
Oceanic on Thompson is indeed in a convenient location for all your holiday needs and a great base to set off to visit our fabulous local attractions!
Access with staircase to the apartment with no elevator. Not recommended with a lot of baggage. Inside parking lot there are lots of bird feces and their nests
