Pondalowie Beach House is located within Innes National Park at the foot of Yorke Peninsula. Offering magnificent views of Pondalowie Bay from its location on the top of the sand dunes, you have the option of lazing on the deck, fishing from the beach, walking through the many surrounding bays or surfing from one of SA's best surf breaks. This is back to basics holidaying with some luxuries on hand if you want or need them, but most of all this is Shack Life.

The bay is a working Crayfish port and you can see the fishermen depart and return to the bay with their catch and is one of the best places to launch your boat for easy access to Wedge Island and other great fishing spots.

There are Fishing Charters that leave the bay each day and can be a great way to catch your own feast for you to cook on the BBQ on the deck that night for your dinner.

Pondalowie Beach House is off grid and has limited power supplied by a solar system with batteries, rain water is the only water supply and is a great example of how to live sustainably without missing out on luxuries.

Entry fees to access the National Park are also payable and are not included in the rate.

The House

The Beach House is 2 storey with sleeping and bathroom facilities on the ground floor, please note that the bedrooms are not defined as individual rooms, rather than spaces within the ground floor and offer limited privacy. Due to the stairs and the split level nature of the property and the deck area, we advise that this property is unsuitable for children under 10 without close supervision. The entire first floor is living space, the kitchen outlook is accss the village and rear dunes and the living room overlooks the deck and entire bay area. Keep and eye out at the bottom of the deck on dusk and you may even spot "Kev" our resident Kangaroo

Kick off the sand from your feet at the bottom of the stairs and relax, please not this is not a party house and is limited to 6 adults and is a non smoking property. Due to its location pets are strictly prohibited and this is enforced by local DEWNR staff in the area and significant fines are payable.

The Amenities

The House is fully stocked with glassware, crockery, cookware and loads of condiments

and is designed to accommodate 6 adults comfortably.

There is a full kitchen with a gas fridge and gas upright stove and a quality covered BBQ on the deck. If you really feel the need to keep in touch with the rest of the world, there is a flat screen TV with Blueray, Surround Sound, iPod Dock and a Sat TV connection. The solar power is limited and will also provide 240V power to charge items such as mobile phones and devices but isn't powerful enough for items such as hair dryers, car fridges or small motors etc.

There is a bathroom with a "low flow shower" i.e. the small hot water system can pump in low volume as this house is on rainwater only. We ask that you respect this precious resource and you will be amazed at how good a rainwater shower can feel after a day on the beach. The toilet is outdoors and is a well maintained long drop which is pumped out on a regular basis.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Off the grid solitude Looking for accommodation between Christmas and new year can be difficult but pondi beach house was exactly what we were looking for; beach views, surf breaks and a comfy bed (best sleep of our lives). Brenton made it personal and easy to keep in contact. Even though there is a long drop and intermittent reception, it was all apart of the charm. Our only downfall for the property was that we couldn’t stay longer. Thankyou Brenton and family for sharing your own part of the national park with us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely location and great stay This is a very special part of the world with great beaches, great Australian flora and fauna and some spectacular sites. I used to come camping here with my parents 30 years ago and now I’ve brought my family but upping the accommodation and staying in one of the original fisherman’s shacks. My family loved staying here. The views from the deck are superb. The local wild life comes to you! We had an Emu and her 3 chicks coming walking past us at breakfast and then there were the 3 Pelicans swimming up and down the beach every day. My twins could run down to the beach safely as we watched from the deck. Not many places you can do that..well not from an English perspective. We were here just before Christmas 2017 and the weather was mixed. We had some fantastic thunderstorms ( I love lightening) and then we had some great sunny skies and warm weather. The shack is very good and kitted out with some typical mod cons but some you will never use, like the TV, as there are much better ways to use your time. Thank you for such a lovely stay and for bringing great memories back for me and to let me share this special place with my family and the next generation. We’ll be back when we’re next in Australia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy Shack in the Perfect Location This place is a great mix of all the comforts you want with a small shack vibe, all situated in the most incredible location! Metres from the water with an expansive view over the whole bay, there isnt much more you need really! Having lunch on the deck watching dolphins swim in the bay was a highlight. The place has everything you need; hot water, comfortable beds, heating, fridge, stove, everything! Can't wait to stay there again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luxury shack Fantastic little shack off the grid with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Kids had a ball playing all day in the sand dunes & ocean. Amazing view complete with frolicking dolphins!
