King Island Breaks
Turnstone and Wave Retreat are two outstanding beach houses specifically designed for this site to provide hideaways on the wonderful west coast of King Island. They blend into the coastline and provide privacy and stunning views .
You can choose one …or if you are a group …both. Though only 150 meters apart each is invisible to the other, with their own beach access and contrasting views, whilst providing convenience and conviviality for larger groups who often share both houses and make one a social centre. Golf groups enjoy this option.
Each house is designed to capture the sweeping views and the mesmerising Southern Ocean sunsets. Both beach houses were designed to effortlessly bring the outside in, without disturbing the landscape. Large double glazed windows all round naturally frame the surrounding coastal landscape. It is a memorable experience to view the rolling surf , a sunset, or a big storm .
You may see a white Sea Eagle or a Pied Oyster Catcher cruising past from the living room or along the beautiful coastal walks from your doorstep
Wave and Turnstone were built to provide the meaningful West coast experience sought by the owners and by the many visitors.
All that just 15 minutes from the Airport and 20 minutes to Currie and not far from everything else. Ocean Dunes golf course is 15 minutes and Cape Wickham about half an hour ....we ARE on an Island
" Clean and Green"-- YES Really!!
OK OK...we know that has become a cliche
But King Island Breaks are serious about our role in protecting our island and thought the Island was brimming with renewable energy so why not use it
We love our comforts too .
So at the design stage of these beautiful houses there was a lot of thought put into the view that good passive solar design and wind and sun energy can power these houses without any compromise to comfort or energy needs . And it works!!
We are recognised for having environmentally sustainable properties.
" Turnstone" has the first and only, PLATINUM TripAdvisor "Green leader" status on the island
Please see below for a list of some of our “green practices” :
Water Saving- Both properties are on tank water and independent. Water falls from the sky after being picked up over the pristine Southern Ocean and is beautifully fresh. The water is great , but to comply with the rules, each house also has triple filters and UV treats all water entering the houses
Power/energy - Our properties have been designed to allow the heat of the sun to enter in winter and to make the most of the cooling sea breezes in summer. We have installed LED Globes, our appliances are low energy rated and heaters are fitted with timers. Turnstone feeds the grid via 7.9 KW solar array that produces more energy than the house uses
Eco Friendly- Our cleaners use eco friendly products and we provide those to you too. This includes Australian made and eco friendly toiletries to use during your stay.
Waste is treated in fully contained Ozzi Kleen septic systems located away from each house
