Description

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 watch 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 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 Satt 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 basic bathroom with a "bucket Shower" i.e. the small hot water system can full the bucket approx 18L for each shower and then when the water runs out the shower is over, 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 A shack with a view This modest little shack packs a punch when you reach the deck & take in the view of Pondalowie Bay. Yes there is a bucket shower which is fantastic to rinse off after a swim in the ocean, & a long drop, however a glass of wine on the deck more than makes up for any inconveniences. It was the perfect place for my husband & I to unwind & relax & watch the world go by. You can travel the world & then realise that we have a piece of paradise in our own back yard!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great beachside getaway We have stayed at the Pondalowie Beach House a couple of times both in summer and winter. Yes it is basic (long drop outside and bucket shower ) but the view is to die for, and we have seen regular luxury travellers remove the 5 star blinkers from their eyes and just relax. It is the quintessential beach shack holiday - sleep in or go for a long beach walk - a BBQ lunch of fresh fish if you time it right with the local fishermen - a dip - read a book on the deck - or explore Innes. Get back to basics without iPhones and you are amazed how much fun you have. We will be back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great place for a surf trip The amenities are basic, but we love that. Good for up to 4 blokes staying for a surf trip. If you don't mind a long drop toilet, basic bucket shower, and power from solar with a genie backup, it's all good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Truly a Fishing Shack Whilst having a fabulous view we were underwhelmed with the state of the property. There was no bed linen or towels provided and at this price point that was a big surprise (particularly as there was no mention of it being required on Stayz). The property was not ready for us even though we checked in at 4.30pm. We found it very hard to get the fridge working and it took several hours for it to cool down. The bucket shower was only ever lukewarm. The less said about the long drop outside toilet the better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Beach House The Beach House was all we needed for a fishing holiday with bedding and the bucket shower was awesome and overall views from the deck
