Tasteful and unique furnishings, such as a piece of functional artwork, a chic black fireplace complete with a large rotating panoramic curved glass front. King Island artworks grace the walls from a selection of the talented artists that convey the beauty and nature of this unique location.

Our friends and I had the most amazing time staying here for two nights! Despite gale force winds at times (which was tricky on the golf course!) Porkies Beach House was the perfect place to stay. It is warm, cozy, beautifully stocked with everything you need and we will never forget sipping champagne in the cedar hot tub overlooking the...

WOW! From the minute we stepped in the door to Alex’s (and Ollie’s) warm welcome and offered us lovely treats of baked King Island Camembert, plus cheese board of local delights, and hot chicken strips, and a glass of bubbles – we knew we had made the right choice of accommodation for our 4.5 days on the island. As we...

About the neighbourhood
This retreat sits on the beach front but only 8 minutes from town. Privacy is paramount. With the setting sun over the ocean and nestled amongst the dunes, sea eagles overhead, wattle birds, blue wrens, flame robbins, blackbirds and Kestrel Falcon, has its nests in front of Porky. It is a bird's paradise. Wallabies, lizards, echidnas (A family live in the driveway) are abound.

Getting around
A hire car is essential if you wish to explore the Island and should be booked prior to arrival. There are many places of interest around the Island and if you wish to go on a picnic. I can organise a gourmet hamper for you, maybe a southern rock lobster, some local oysters and cheese! We recommend a guided tour, a farm experience is a must.

Car hire is a definite. Please refer to information given on both properties as verified commercial vehicles are available for rent through King Island Escapes
