Overview

About the property

Your own kilometre of wilderness coast offers a restorative experience you will not forget. King's Beach Retreats are the perfect gateway to Kangaroo Island and the renowned wineries of the McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek. The retreats are situated just over the hill (out of view) from Victor Harbor on the bountiful Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia.

Description

"The Sand" retreat offers self-catering accommodation for up to five people. Located on prominent King's Head, a thirty minute walk from Victor Harbor's Bluff, it commands amazing views along this famous wilderness coast. A two minute walk by a private access track takes you to secluded, sheltered King's Beach or to the Heysen Trail which is fast gaining an international reputation for stunning coastal walks.

Take a five minute drive to Encounter Bay and enjoy a variety of restaurants and cafes. A 10 minute drive will take you to Victor Harbor which boasts restaurants, hotels, major supermarkets, cafes, library, DVD hire and the famous horse drawn tram to Granite Island.

The neighbouring towns of Port Elliot, Middleton and Goolwa are within easy reach as are the wineries of McLaren vale and Langhorne Creek, Waitpanga and Kings Beach, Cape Jervis and the heritage town of Strathalbyn.

Activities include swimming, fishing, trekking, painting and sketching, whale watching, surfing, nature walks and petanque. Contact your hosts in advance if you wish to restore your body, mind and soul with meditation, reflexology, tai chi, chi kung, meditation or massage therapy (a personalised quote can be arranged).

Accommodation

"The Sand" at King's Beach Retreats offers boutique, architect designed accommodation, including one king-size bed/sitting room and one separate bedroom with a double & single bed.

The retreat is self-catering and complete with a modern kitchen, spacious living room, central heating, large high pressure shower, TV and stereo. Barbecue facilities are available in the stunning glass sheltered courtyard with breathtaking ocean views.

A complimentary bottle of local wine is provided upon arrival.

Exquisite Views

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here ..the views were unbelievable ...probably the best of any accommodation I have stayed at....Comfortable bed..my only criticism would be the lack of cooking facilities...even a microwave would have been handy...but you don't visit a beautiful place like this to cook anyway !!

Excellent spot.

Very enjoyable. minor repairs needed to 'spruce' up the outside sitting area. (rough patch, plus drafty in one corner)

The site is excellent though excavation areas shockingly rehabilitated. Superb views and great walki

The site is excellent though excavation areas shockingly rehabilitated. Superb views and great walking but maintenance appalling. More than half the downlights did not work, and the A/C blew nothing but cold air on a REALLY cold night. Packed up to leave after first night but staff arrived and finally got warm air blowing. But there was insufficient light to read, the heating in the courtyard was inadequate, and design made it unsuited to renting with three steep steps in bathroom.

Owner's Response: Dear Rosie Thank you for your feedback after your stay at 'The Sand' at Kings Beach Retreat. We are pleased that you enjoyed the views and the walking trails. We have addressed your concerns in that we have now provided more detailed instructions on the operation of the reverse cycle air conditioning, we have replaced the down-lights with longer lasting LED lights, and placed higher wattage bulbs in the bedside lamps. The courtyard is designed to capture the winter sun. The heating is provided to take the chill from a cold and cloudy winter day - the heating is not intended to provide the equivalent warmth of an indoor heated area. The sunken living area and bathroom are an integral part of the design and experience of the retreat. As a precaution, balustrades provide additional support for those who need it. We are currently carrying out extensive renovations and re-structuring garden and outdoor living areas. This has necessitated excavations of the grounds. Kind regards, Ian

Peace and tranquility

  • 5 of 5

Went here with husband to celebrate birthday for a weekend of R and R sans kids. Within minutes of arriving I felt relaxed. We didn't want to leave. It's cosy and compact but ample sized and secluded for a romatic weekend. The veiw is amazing and it's virtually on the heyson trail so you really don't need to go anywhere else once you arrived. Of course victor is a short drive away if you need something. The ultra long road / driveway is not paved but we managed in a standard car with care but if you have a 4WD it would probably cope better.
