A very special place
Turnstone is a very special property, wonderfully situated, with views from every window. The house is spacious, absorbing guests in such a way that there are plenty of options for privacy or just "get away" time. The huge, well-equipped kitchen is a delight, and the cheese platter on arrival was much appreciated. I can recommend it wholeheartedly.
Beyond the cheese factory
Beyond the cheese factory nestled in the grassy dunes is Turnstone Beach House where we stayed for one week.
Toward the ocean the grass gives way to cushion bush and pigsface and beyond this a low rocky headland and sandy beaches. Giant kelp washes up on the beach and rocks and adds to the character.
Tammar wallabies are regulars here and it was nice to see that like the other wildlife (seabirds) they are wild and keep there distance. Blue Throat Wrasse inhabit the rocks and there were Taylor around the beaches (I did some catch and release fishing).
Locally we swam, explored the beaches and rocks, took photos, flew kits, read books and played board games.
The house is well designed for its location and has a great internal layout. Really well provisioned and layed out kitchen and bathrooms. The design gives you plenty of options to adapt to night and day, sun and shade and wind and no wind which enhances its liveability.
The house is well located for adventures across the island, quick trips into Currie and return to airport.
My partner and I and our children 15, 13 and 11 had a good holiday here.
So happy to hear you all had a fantastic time! Hopefully we will have you back again soon!
Fabulous house fabulous location
Really beautifully set up with all you could possibly want or need for a perfect stay. Alex, who manages the property, an absolute gem!
The perfect location and house.
Six people stayed at this amazing house and enjoyed the daily view from every room in the house of the beautiful ocean. The house has every possible appliance needed, so you could have a BBQ in style or a fine dining experience without leaving the house. The shops are only 10 minute by car and the cheese factory is only five minutes by car. The most relaxing holiday we have every experienced.
The "King Island Breaks" properties are located on Barnes Road, overlooking the beautiful Southern Ocean. We are only 10 minutes away from the local township of Currie, 6 minutes from the Ocean Dunes golf course and 35mins from Cape Wickham. On the way to the properties from the airport, you drive past the King Island Dairy and cheese tasting shop.
