King Island Breaks

Close to town but out of town and close to the cheese factory, what more do you need. Turnstone is located in the perfect position for a break away with family or friends, a very well-appointed house with the most stunning views of the King Island coast everywhere you turn.

Turnstone turns it on for the swimmers 🙏👏🥂

6 girls on a swimming weekend getaway from Melbourne. Turnstone was the perfect place to stay, the house was sensational. Bedrooms were brilliant as they could split all the king beds , and we each had our own bed . Kitchen , dining and lounge area fabulous , loads of space and very well equipped . Location fabulous , swam out the front everyday . Crayfish on the bbq , insane views with incredible sunsets and star gazing at night . Highly recommend. We will be back
Next year xx

Review from Apr 2023


In February 2023 we stayed at the magnificent TURNSTONE accommodation on King Island. Palatial accommodation and amazing views of the sea on three sides with Bennett wallaby visiting daily and an array of bird life. What a great location King Island is to visit. An added bonus on arrival we were greeted with an array of King Island cheeses and biscuits what a welcome introduction to our stay.

“Amazing accommodation at Turnstone Cottage on King Island.”

We have just returned from an amazing five night stay at Turnstone Cottage on King Island. Could not fault this accommodation and are so glad we chose to stay there. The location is wonderful with views from every window overlooking the garden and beaches and bays. The accommodation is very comfortable and well set up with three bedrooms and two bathrooms at one end of the house, a central lounge area and then a kitchen, dining and lounge area at the other end of the house. All the rooms are large and well furnished. The kitchen is well equipped with everything required for any variety of meals to be cooked. The bedding and linen supplied was also top quality. The manager, Bianca, was lovely and very helpful with suggestions of sights to see, there are also lots of tourist information and maps at Turnstone Cottage to help plan your outings around this beautiful island. There is no hesitation in highly recommending a stay at Turnstone Cottage, you won't be sorry.

David thank you for making Turnstone available to us.  It is an extraordinary home in an amazing location on a wonderful island.  Thank you for your advice leading up to our stay.  It was very helpful.  We had Christmas at Turnstone that we will never forget.

It is with deep gratitude that I was able to spend my holidays here.  I had a great time. 

Hi David, thank you so much for making it possible for us to enjoy beautiful Turnstone.  It was such a wonderful oasis.  Turntone itself is so wonderful and your home has such a special vibe.  There is serenity and peace and wonder.  We had a fantastic time and will be sure to return.  This is an excellent place for people to stay when they visit King Island or Tasmania for the first time.  Something I will never forget. 

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us – what a beautiful part of the world!  We loved it – thanks.

Sincere thanks Christine and David.  A fabulous few days in your delightful home – great location and so well appointed.  Thanks for all your help with suggested activities, meals, etc.  We have all loved the golf, the ambience and the island – which we have certainly seen a lot of.  Your ‘welcome pack’ also much appreciated – so pleased we finally made it to Turnstone.

TA Review from 1 Nov 2022

Absolutely breathtaking!!!

Incredible place to stay with the most amazing views of the rugged coastline.
This beautiful home is large enough for everyone and has everything you'll need for your stay. We loved enjoying a drink by the cosy fireplace while we watched the abundance of wildlife right on the doorstep. We can't wait to stay again.
I highly recommend staying here, you'll just wish you could stay longer!!!!

Turnstone is a perfect place to stay on King Island.  Such a beautiful home in a lovely location.  The attention to detail and the views from every window make this accommodation so spectacular and so comfortable and homely.  Thank you David and Christine and Bianca for the lovely stay here and a wonderful welcome basket on arrival.

This has been a truly wonderful experience.  Everything that we needed to relax and shake off the Covid 19 blues.  We felt at home immediately and toured KI at a gentle pace.  The information supplied by David was very useful to enable us to plan our days.  I don’t know who organised the weather but they did a wonderful job, enabling many interesting walks in great rambling condition.  It looks like ‘Grand Designs’ had a hand in the design of the house - sitting as it does like a bird on a large nest.

Stunning views and an easy walk to untouched beaches. A quality residence.

Fabulous beach retreat

We were a group of 6 and had the most amazing stay at Turnstone. Fabulous location, right on the beach. We did not want to leave the beautiful location even though there were so many other locations to visit on King Island. Great advice from David for activities and Bianca welcomed us and even gave us a late check out which was wonderful as sharp airline had changed our flight to 530 pm. I would recommend Turnstone unreservedly as a fabulous King Island getaway.
