'Island Touch' offers contemporary beachside accommodation with an open-plan design that brings the stunning views outside right into the house. There is nothing but sea air between you and the spectacular view of Encounter Bay, Wright Island and The Bluff. Laze on the huge front balcony and watch waves crashing onto Wright Island and perhaps a whale or two in the winter months. You can enjoy the same view from inside while rugged up on the leather couches. Press a button and enjoy the gas fireplace on colder days. Fully furnished with designer furniture and appliances, no detail has been overlooked. All you need to do is turn up and relax.

Features include a custom-built wooden dining table for 12 - 14 people, leather couches, Tasmanian oak flooring throughout, big-screen plasma TV, 2 full bathrooms, 3 toilets, spa bath, 2 showers, large rumpus room for the kids and a separate enclosed balcony for barbecuing or catching some sun on a cooler day. There is also a fully-appointed caesar stone galley kitchen that flows directly into the main living room, so you can prepare meals and also interact with guests while you enjoy the view.

5 bed rooms in total; 3 x Queens (6), 2 x bunks (4), 2 x singles (2), and an additional sofa bed (2) in the separate rumpus room means the property sleeps up to 14 guests in comfort. All linen is provided for bedding and bathrooms.

Fully enclosed paved and lawn back yard for the kids. Ample living areas for all the family, room for several family groups to stay together without feeling "on top of each other". We can organise additional baby items you may require during your stay including high chairs and port-a-cots as well as an assortment of baby/children's toys and games to save you packing and transporting your own.

Island Touch - the perfect place for a family holiday.

Whales can be seen from the balcony during whale season from June to August, with many guests lucky enough to experience this. The property is only a short walk from the main whale watching area of the Bluff. Walk out of the front door for a short walk/ride/scoot with the kids to get the best babychinos in town from the Yilki Store just down the beach where the grown ups can relax while the kids play in the sheltered sandpit.

It is only minutes to the newly-built boat ramp and the Bluff Jetty. From the jetty you would consider yourself unlucky if you and the kids didn't catch of few squid on any day of the year. The relatively sheltered beach, which is just meters from the house, is perfect for children. They can swim and snorkel over the reef when the tide is in, and search for crabs and other sea creatures when the tide goes out. Then come back and shower off in the outdoor hot shower before relaxing inside with some boardgames. Another favourite for kids is a trip on the horse-drawn tram to Granite Island. They can make the same trip at night on foot to see the penguins.

For the bigger kids in the family, there are several local beaches that offer big waves and great surfing. You can also fish from the jetty off Granite Island.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great holiday spot Our family thoroughly enjoyed the comforts and stunning views this property afforded. The children enjoyed their own tv room and spent hours bike riding hiking up to the bluff and looking for crabs. A great holiday for all ages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic house Situated in the best position. Wonderful views, short walks to cafes,restaurants. The house catered for our every needs. Very spacious, even for the 11 of us who stayed there ( 4 of which were small grandchildren, who were well catered for as well) Could not fault it at all. Would love to go back and stay again and again.
