Spacious 3-bedroom holiday house with stunning views over beautiful Vivonne Bay
Why Ian chose Vivonne Bay
We first travelled to Kangaroo Island in 2014. Our travel agent booked us into a cosy and modern holiday house at Vivonne Bay called Island Time. We loved the house, and found to our surprise on returning home that it was for sale. So our first trip to KI became our most expensive holiday ever. We have since grown to love Vivonne Bay and especially the spectacular setting and pristine beach. On our regular walks we had often admired a prominent house located very close to the beach and sitting atop a sand dune overlooking the ocean. So when Ocean View came on to the market in 2017 with the tag “arguably the best positioned in the Vivonne Bay township”, we lost no time in following up the opportunity. Managing and enjoying our two holiday houses in Vivonne Bay has become a retirement passion for us.

Great house in a beautiful location
Our family had a fantastic stay at Ocean View. The house was very comfortable with everything we needed and Ian was an excellent host with clear and prompt communication. We loved Vivonne Bay and it is a great base to explore the Island.We hope to return one day!
Our sincere thanks Ben for your review. It was great to have you and your wife & three children stay at Ocean View. Five nights was a perfect length of time to relax and enjoy Vivonne Bay, and to explore the attractions of western Kangaroo Island. We would be delighted to welcome you back for a future stay. Warm regards, Ian & Ann
Amazing accommodation on Kangaroo Island
Great stay at Ocean View at beautiful Vivonne Bay. Ocean View deserves the name as the views are to die for. Thanks to Ian and Ann for the easy and pleasant communication.
Fabulous view and comfortable stay
This house has all the comforts of home along with a fabulous view. It is within walking distance of the beach, and a handy drive to other nearby attractions. The deck out the front is the ideal place to sip a wine and watch the sunset, or equally from the table inside which has district views. Perfect for a quiet getaway or family stay. Owners are organised, accommodating and ensured our stay was great. Already planning our next visit!
Many thanks Heather for your lovely comments which we greatly appreciate. We were especially tickled to learn that beautiful Vivonne Bay provided you with inspiration for painting on your next visit. We look forward to welcoming you back! Warm regards, Ann & Ian
Superbly located. Well appointed. Clean
We stayed at Ocean View for 3 nights. It seems to be the only house at Vivonne Bay with ocean views and we felt like we had hit the jackpot. Beautiful beach. The Bird life is fantastic and we were lucky enough to have a wallaby come to visit on our last evening.
We used Vivonne Bay as our base and spent 2 full days exploring the island. Again the location is ideal. Seals on both days!
The owners’ advice re providoring before you go was spot on. The general store is very basic. The BBQ and kitchen are well appointed and we ate in each evening.
The owners were great...welcoming us by text when we arrived and providing detailed clear instructions. We had no difficulty locating and opening and closing the house. Would highly recommend.
Sincere thanks Susan for your gratifying comments. We are bird lovers too and made the nesting pipes under our eaves for Striated Pardalotes – endearing little birds and especially active during nesting season (Spring through early Summer).
Glad that you saw seals too – they are adept surfers and entertaining to watch as they chase waves.
The BBQ on the deck is a new addition that we installed in late October so your November stay was well timed!
We hope you can visit again. Warm regards, Ann & Ian
The perfect beach house in the best position
We were fortunate to spend 3 nights at Ocean View, Vivonne Bay perfectly situated so we could explore the Western end of KI in complete luxury. Wonderful views across Vionne bay were the best way to start and end the days. As the weather was inclement the house offered the comforts of heating, electric blankets and warm doonas. The fully equipped kitchen included a state of the art coffee machine so we could enjoy real coffee and cook the local produce we picked up along the way. The Vivonne Bay store just up the road stocks everything you need including local wines and the best whiting burgers you will ever taste. Ocean Views owners, Ian and Ann were very quick and accessible with communication and advice. The swimming beach was right out the front! Thanks for a wonderful stay Ann and Ian.
Thank you Cathy for your very positive comments. You have captured the essence of Ocean View and also the advantages of Vivonne Bay as a base for visiting the numerous attractions in the western part of the island. We are tickled that you also commended the very handy general store at Vivonne Bay. Sampling their delicious whiting burgers is a must. Sorry the weather wasn't the best but we would love to host you again if you have a return visit in mind. Warm regards, Ann & Ian
A stunning place to relax & enjoy all the delights of KI
The house is perfectly located to see all the sights of KI along the southern coast. It is a quick stroll away from one of Australias most stunning beach's.
The house is comfortable, cosy, well appointed - especially given its remote location.
Ian is amazing host - so helpful & available!
Would definitely recommend.
Thank you very much Sue. It was a pleasure to have you and your family as guests of Ocean View. Glad that we could assist with recommendations during your stay. You made a great choice basing yourselves in Vivonne Bay for six nights - plenty of time to unwind & relax, and to enjoy the beach and KI's major attractions. Best wishes, Ann & Ian
Ocean View is ideally located between KI's primary tourist attractions - with Raptor Domain and Seal Bay to the east - and Kelly Hill Caves, Remarkable Rocks, Admiral's Arch and Flinders Chase National Park to the west.
Pristine Vivonne Bay beach is just a minute's walk from Ocean View.
