Description from owner


Beachcomber is a modern, light filled home that enjoys spectacular views over Eastern Cove and across to American River. The beach right in front of the house is a 5km white sandy cove with safe clear water for swimming and other water activities.

It is a comfortable 4 bedroom, beachfront home with sweeping sea views from most rooms and spacious sun deck with easy access to the safe sandy beach. The recently refurbished house is fully self contained, a real home away from home.

This comfortable and modern home has all the comforts of city living with the relaxed atmosphere of the country. Facing north it enjoys winter sun and stunning sea views. The house is surrounded by native fauna and is also home to many birds, wallabies and echidnas. There is a large deck with outdoor dining suite, perfect for lounging around, relaxing and enjoying nature at its best. The house is generously appointed with full kitchen facilities and equipment, many books, DVDs, CDs and games.

The beach is sandy and a safe place for children to play and explore, also perfect for water sports and long walks. The waters are crystal clear and predominantly calm with a boat ramp for small craft at the southern end.

Beachcomber is fully self contained with all cooking utensils and equipment. Linen can be provided on request so all guests need to bring is their food and personal items. There are books, magazines and games for times when you are not out exploring or enjoying the beautiful beach.

There are 4 bedrooms, 3 with queen sized beds, 2 of these have sea views and one an ensuite. There is a bunk room with 4 single bunks sleeping 4 and a games room below the house .

There is generous room to park vehicles and boats behind the house.

Response from the owner Thank you for your review. We try to ensure we have everything guests would like to find in a holiday house so they are really comfortable. Island Beach is a great spot to enjoy what KI has to offer - you can visit the attractions and come back to a private & peaceful home. Yes, the IGA in Penneshaw does pretty much have all you need for your stay which can make life simpler when you are packing for your trip.

“Enjoyable stay”

We enjoyed the week we stayed and we booked this rental between two families for a week. We expected a bit more from this property than what we received in terms of the price we paid for peak season. … More

Response from the owner Thank you for your review which dates back to January 2014. I am disappointed you felt the kitchen utensils and linen were not of the quality expected, since your stay they have been upgraded. We try to ensure we have all the kitchen items people require and regularly upgrade and add to the selection, unfortunately the wear and tear from large groups staying can cause items to deteriorate sooner than expected. Since your stay we have outsourced our linen from a laundry hire service, so this is of hotel standard. With regard the views, we feel that we do have 180 degree views from the deck and pretty much from all the living area as do the majority of guests who have stayed here. All photos used to advertise our property have been taken from the property and are actual photos.
