It was magnificent
It’s breathtaking waking up to that view and quietness of the area, I loved every second of the day being at that Terrace looking towards the ocean.
Thank you for your lovely review...we know exactly what you mean!! So glad you chose to stay at Alchemy on Island Beach. Thanks again and we hope to see you again. Happy Travels!
Beautiful and quiet location steps from the beach
Alchemy is in a great location for couples and families. A car is an absolute must because the closest restaurants (American River) and supplies (Penneshaw) are 20 minutes away. Although the home is very comfortable, nicely furnished, clean and well equipped, some items could use some updating and TLC. Cooking knives were found in a drawer, unorganized with other utensils and dull (a small knife block would be nice). There were only a few bath towels (for a place that sleeps seven) and if you use the beach you're expected to BYO. There was only one small role of paper towels supplied for the kitchen. For $350A/night, I wouldn't expect basic necessities to be lacking. When I emailed the manager about some of these I didn't get a response. Overall, Alchemy was a great experience.
Thank you so much for your review and feedback on Alchemy on Island Beach. We are delighted you have had a great stay.
We note your comment on the disorganised utensil drawer, dull kitchen knives and sharper. We will get on to that pronto and ensure these things are attended to. Thank you.
We include at least one roll of paper towels and several rolls of toilet paper to get our guests started, as we are a self contained accommodation, not a serviced hotel.
It is stated on the HomeAway/Stayz website that beach towels are not provided, only bath towels, hand towels, etc. I am sorry if that inconvenienced you. We will take your comments regarding beach towels on board.
As for the email you sent regarding these issues, unfortunately we were overseas and out of communication for a couple of days. As soon as I was back in wifi territory I sent a response to you. Please let me know if you didn't receive.
Once again we thank you for providing your comments and feedback, which we take seriously. We hope to have you stay again in the future.
Happy travels James!
a little piece of heaven
Alchemy is a little piece of heaven in Australia. An open plan living/dining/cooking area lets you look out on the tranquil waters of Eastern Cove. The wooden deck is perfect for enjoying a glass of wine and watching the ever-changing hues of the water. In the evening the lounge is a cozy place to curl up with a book, enjoy some music. Bring your own entertainment there is no WiFi.
The kitchen had good necessities - nice cutlery, matching glasses and a bountiful supply of plates and cups. When we arrived the cleaner had just finished, leaving the house spotless.
There is plenty of wildlife around - some of it too close. The magpies decided they owned the table and chairs on the deck. But, we loved waking up to their songs.
A sandy trail leads down to the beach where you can walk for a long distance before running into anyone else. The owner has provided beach towels and eskies if you plan on spending a day at the cove. When you’re back at the house, there is a hose to wash off the sand - a nice touch that helps keep the house clean.
This house is all about the beach and the water. We think it’s one of the best beach cottages we’ve ever stayed in.

Wonderful beachfront family property
Alchemy is a wonderful and well equipped beachfront property conveniently located between Penneshaw and Kingston. Direct beach access provides a very relaxing location for families with kids. The kids loved swimming and we enjoyed the long, beautiful beach walks, and the cosy easy evenings with the slow combustion fire. Easy drives to a number of King Island attractions is also a feature. Thank you Lori for a wonderful stay, we definitely want to come back.
