It is priced accordingly being at the lowest end of rental charges for properties this close to the beach and with frontage views over the water, in Island Beach. The amenities are " no frills" but functional.

Visit nearby Penneshaw or American River restaurants and cafes, venture further afield to the National Parks wine tasting, attractions and more at various locations around the Island.

Clothes washing: as there is limited rain water, the house doesn't have a washing machine or tumble dryer. A laundromat is located in Kingscote.

There is a small general store at Island Beach, otherwise the closest shopping is 15 minutes away at Penneshaw. The main township of Kingscote has a range of shops, restaurants, cafes and souvenir shops, chemist and doctors.


Great location and easy access to Island beach with it's safe, shallow water. Perfect for young families. From the deck we saw dolphins swim by one morning, and a kangaroo hop past at dusk. Although the accommodation isn't central on the island, it is easy to explore the many attractions on K. I. Mark, Jan 2017

The place was very clean and comfortable. Instructions for keys and pump were exact and easy to follow. The beach is fantastic, we had three sighting of dolphins from our balcony! Carry your tea/coffee/matchbox/candles/UHT milk/snacks as shops are not nearby. Owners were prompt to call back when contacted and were helpful.
