About Kirstin Abley
Kirstin and Anthony love Carrickalinga and enjoy being able to share their little piece of paradise with travellers. We have two young children so the house is equipped with all you need to make travelling with children a little bit easier.
Kirstin Abley purchased this House in 2007
Why Kirstin Abley chose Carrickalinga
We originally built The Running Postman to live in permanently but had to relocate to Adelaide for work reasons. We couldn't bear to sell our house so we decided to rent it out so that we could continue to enjoy our little beachy sanctuary whilst also allowing others to share it.
What makes this House unique
When we built the house we orientated it to make the most of the relaxing rural views. Waking up in the morning to the views of the garden and the hills beyond, often with grazing horses or kangaroos, is a great way to start the day. And the short walk to the beach is a great way to continue it!

Great base to relax in on a weekend getaway. Loved the log fire and the large separate kids room so we could give our little one a quiet, dark place to sleep and for us to be able to talk while he's sleeping. Will be back in the future!

Perfect beach house and location, we absolutely love this place
Perfect beach house for a family, walking distance to the amazing Carrickalinga beach. As soon as we arrived, we felt relaxed. Great communication with host at all times. We love this place and hope to return again for the third time soon.
Great place to relax and it had everything we needed
Loved the big windows that looked out onto the garden and the quiet. It also had an uncluttered, airy feel which helped to make the home a comfortable place to come back to after exploring the area. I appreciated the way the owners communicated with us to help us have a wonderful stay. Thanks.
