Our quaint two bedroom light and airy beach house directly overlooks the beautiful beach at Penneshaw, Kangaroo Island, and is only a 5-10 minute walk away from all town facilities and the ferry terminal.

The space

Perfectly located overlooking the white sands of Hog Bay and with uninterrupted views across the waters of Backstairs Passage to Cape Jervis, The Beach House on The Bay is the ideal base for a Kangaroo Island holiday.

The house comprises a living/meals room with terrific views across the bay, two bedrooms (1 double and 1 x 2 single), kitchen and bathroom. A separate back room includes a laundry area equipped with a fully automatic washing machine and dryer.

The well-equipped kitchen includes electric hot plates, microwave oven, electric frying pan, toaster, kettle, coffee plunger and a good range of cooking pots, utensils, crockery and cutlery. Guests can also use the stainless steel gas barbeque (stored out of the weather in the back room). We ask that guests please clean the barbeque after use and return it to the back room.

All beds have doonas and bed linen is provided. Towels and spare blankets are also provided.

Across the road the flat beach and generally calm waters combine to produce one of the safest swimming beaches on the island.

Interaction with guests

We live in Stirling in the Adelaide Hills so we cannot always meet and greet our guests but we are readily contactable by phone or email and are very happy to provide recommendations on things to do on Kangaroo Island.

Tom is a wonderful host, informative and quick to respond to any queries. We never went out for the day without Tom's day trip itintery that covered all weather conditions. The beach cottage is in a perfect location, just the spot for watching sea life pass by and the ever changing ocean. The cottage is very clean, comfortable with everything a family or a couple need. A good hot shower and fresh linen makes a happy holiday maker. Thank you Tom.

Perfect end to a few days on Kangaroo Island. The cabin is in a perfect location - beautiful sunrise and beach walks right out the front door, <15 minute scenic beach walk to Penneshaw hotel pub, shops, etc. And the cozy cabin has everything you need with a quaint ambiance.

We had a wonderful first time stay on Kangaroo Island. Tom was very informative and provided detailed information and suggested itineraries for us to maximize our weekend stay. Thanks to this we were able to see and do everything we had hoped. The beach cottage was lovely, furnished well, extremely comfortable and in a perfect location. We couldn't really fault a thing and would definitely recommend this listing. We hope to revisit at some point in the not too distant future.
