Comfortable holiday house with sweeping sea views and beach access
About Fiona McLeay
Our family have enjoyed Island Beach for over 20 years and since 2006 have provided quality self contained guest accommodation at Beachcomber. We have seen a significant interest in Kangaroo Island from both local holiday makers and international travellers. We enjoy providing our guests with a positive experience, and assisting them with their holiday planning. Personally I enjoy outdoor things - walking, swimming, fishing and exploring. I also have a keen interest in art and spend time working on projects here at Island Beach. I also enjoy food and wine, and spending time with my family and friends.
Fiona McLeay purchased this House in 2000
Why Fiona McLeay chose Island Beach
We purpose built Beachcomber in 2000 to suit our mixed generation family - grandparents, parents and children. We loved the location and had holidayed in the area many times previously. When the opportunity arose to purchase a block of land we jumped at it. We love the blend of rural and beach. Native flora and fauna around the home and the gentle waves lapping out in front of the house.
What makes this House unique
We love the fact that the family or a group of our friends can all share a fun and relaxing holiday together. The house is very conducive to sharing meals, games and fun stories. Our family has an interest in art and I have painted some of the art pieces in the property, as has my son's mother in law. I always comb the beach for interesting shells, driftwood and other items, hence the name - Beachcomber.

Clean, tidy and lovely view. Can’t fault accommodation and would love to stay again if returning to KI. Directions good and property easy to find.
Was quite surprised during booking process that the price increases per person on homeaway and then an additional charge for linen is required. Not additional linen, actually was for bed sheets which you kind of assume would be included when you hire a property. Was only $25 per person but this adds up though when there is an additional per person charge. This isn’t something I’ve come across before.
Clean, comfortable and well equipped to cater for ten people- with beautiful views.
We really enjoyed our stay at Beachcomber.
The kids loved kayaking and collecting shells on the beach, our holiday kept 6 children ages 6-13 well entertained.
The balcony was a fantastic place to relax and enjoy in the views. We would love to return again one day.
Thank you Anna. It is great to hear that you all had a good time. The beach is such a safe and interesting place for children to explore. I love sitting on the deck and watching the wildlife and the water - never the same thing. We would love to have you back.
Excellent family holiday home
This is our second family holiday in the Beachcomber with our international guests. Both times it has been perfect... great beach, comfy house, outstanding views and relaxed vibe. Guests from 9-90 years old have been well entertained here. We will be returning!!
Thank you Cheryl for your lovely review. We are thrilled you have enjoyed your time at Beachcomber both times. Again, we would love to host you any time you want to visit KI.

Thank you Kelly,
I am really happy you enjoyed your stay at Beachcomber.
Excellent accomodation & Peaceful surroundings
We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful house & the morning walks along the beach where so peaceful, we felt more at home than on holidays.
The layout of the well equipped kitchen, utensils , pantry area and bbq where top notch so that even a mere male could find his way round with ease.
We found the bed to be most comfortable and enjoyed listening to the water lapping on the beach..
Overall we enjoyed staying at Beachcomber and will highly recommend to those we know who love to travel....Cheers ChrisMac
Perfect holiday house on stunning Island Beach
Beachcomber is the perfect holiday house with everything you require. Gorgeous view from the deck, and you step through some trees and enjoy one of the most stunning beaches in Australia with barely a soul in sight. The house and beach are also great for families (we had a one year old). This was our second stay and we will be back again!
Thank you Rhi

Beachcomber at Island Beach is ideally located for a relaxing holiday, whether it be enjoying the beautiful white sandy beach or visiting the local attractions.
