And sunrise for early-birds Also waves crashing against the rocks at Point Ellen.
The house is set amidst lush coastal vegetation bordering the beach. Local wildlife abounds with Tammar wallabies being frequent visitors below the deck and various species of birds flitting about including honeyeaters, superb fairywrens and endearing little striated pardalotes. We have installed nesting pipes for the pardalotes that can be seen flitting close by in Spring and early Summer.
Ocean View is perfectly located to enjoy the attractions offered by Vivonne Bay including walks along the pristine beach, swimming, surfing and fishing from the beach, jetty or nearby Harriet River. We are also ideally located relative to Kangaroo Island’s major tourist attractions, with Raptor Domain and Seal Bay lying to the east and Kelly Hill Caves, Admirals Arch, Remarkable Rocks and Flinders Chase National Park to the west.

We welcome you to Ocean View which we opened for guest accommodation in December 2017. Lying in bed at night and being lulled to sleep by the sound of breaking waves is an experience to be remembered.
