About us

Escape to a world-class holiday destination

Nigel and Lydia Firth travelled the world for many years before settling on Phillip Island in 1976 and bringing up three children. The Black Dolphin was established in 2005 as a family concern. Your hosts take great pride in providing a very private, clean and comfortable place to spend your holiday getaway.

As energetic enthusiasts for all things interesting and unique to Phillip Island, Nigel and Lydia love running an accommodation business and are fascinated by the people that they meet. Their aim is for every guest to feel that The Black Dolphin is their home away from home.

The Black Dolphin comprises three separate and very different premises.

The Townhouse and Apartment are situated in an architect-designed building nestled on the waterfront as you enter the township of San Remo. This supremely convenient location is just a short leisurely stroll along the water's edge to the San Remo jetty, cafés, restaurants and retail area.

A short drive away on Cape Woolamai is the Beach Penthouse which is rated four stars with AAA Tourism.

As Nigel and Lydia live close nearby, they are accessible to guests at all The Black Dolphin properties to help with directions, local knowledge or any other assistance required.

This high-quality luxury accomodation combines private, self-contained facilities with a truly enchanting world-class holiday destination literally just outside your front door.
