About Annie Duncan
We are a family with young children, we grew up in Victor Harbor and enjoyed the many wonderful things the Fleurieu Peninsula has to offer, we hope we are able to share this with you.
Annie Duncan purchased this House in 2009
Why Annie Duncan chose Encounter Bay
We designed and built this property in 2009 as newlyweds. Our hope was that it would be a place for our children and friends to enjoy and take advantage of the many wonderful things this beautiful region has to offer. We have since added four young children to our family who adore spending time at Island Touch, we're sure you will too. The house itself was designed to accommodate several family or friend groups together while each still feeling that they have their own space. Perfect for several generations to get together for special times together such as milestone birthdays or family holidays. We have lots of families come back year after year for this reason.
What makes this House unique
The view from Island Touch is second to none, friends and neighbours who also enjoy holidaying at beach front homes close by often comment that ours is the best view. The exceptionally large sheltered balcony provides the perfect place to enjoy this unique view. On rainy or cold days the view is just as nice from the warm inside. It really is a social house with a fantastic open plan living space upstairs taking in the full beauty of the beachfront view with plenty of room for the extended family to stay in their own space. Communal meals with everyone at the same custom built table are also very special.

Great House & Location
Overall our stay was great, we would happily return.
We did however have a few issues:
1. The gas was turned off for the heater in the lounge room, it was difficult to work and would often go out. (It was 14 degrees the day we checked in).
2. We couldn’t turn on the ducted heating & cooling for the duration of our stay. This left the majority of the house pretty cold.
3. A lot of cobwebs on the windows and a few inside
4. Outdoor BBQ plate wasn’t clean.
5. The neighbour had taken the bins out, which wouldn’t have been an issue if we had known he/she were coming onto the property.
These are all easily fixable, I would definitely recommend this property. Aside from the above, we had a great stay. Location is perfect, and the home is beautiful.
I’m glad you enjoyed your stay over all and am sorry about the issues you describe, had I known during your stay I certainly would have rectified these at the time. Thank you for your feedback now, I’ll now make sure the reverse cycle AC is looked at. Unfortunately we are not able to leave the pilot light on the gas fire for safety reasons.
We hope you do return!
A group of 6 all had a fabulous time for a weekend mini break. Spotlessly clean, quality linen, bright, light and perfect set up to enjoy the view from the deck and kitchen/living area.
Thank you for your feedback. We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay, we hope to welcome you back sometime!
Fantastic view, fantastic property and great location. Thank you for having us.
The property was in great condition when we arrived. Beautiful view, we will definitely be back!
We are an extended family group, ages ranging from 78 years old to 7 years old and this is the second time we have stayed here this year. The location is perfect .
We’re always glad to welcome you and your family back Ann. Thanks again for staying!
The location is superb with uninterrupted views of the sea. The property itself has a lot of pluses for a group of adults such as ours. We visited in winter so a way to dry our towels would have been appreciated. The gas fire was tricky to light but a patient person among us managed to master it. Overall it was a lovely weekend.
