Overview

About the property

The Sea Loft overlooks the peaceful waters of Shoal Bay, Nepean Bay and beyond, providing guests with excellent sea and pastoral views. It is discreetly tucked away but still within easy reach of Kingscote...a perfect spot for exploring the entire island.

The Sea Loft offers guests a rare combination of a bush and sea setting, while being located within minutes of the shops and restaurants of Kingscote. You will feel removed from everything, yet you are mere minutes from Kangaroo Island's main town.

This lofted, two-story home is nestled among gum trees with expansive views of stunning Bay of Shoals. Immerse yourself in this serene setting, while enjoying the convenience of being so close to Kingscote.

Take in a 180 degree view of Shoal Bay from the comforts of your bed. Relax on the balcony of the upstairs bedroom and sit within the canopy of Eucalypts. This house offers breath taking sea views while being nestled amongst the trees. Observe the ever-changing colours of Shoal Bay from both upstairs and downstairs decks. Gaze across to North Cape.

Sea Loft is a recently constructed home, with a unique jarrah sky walk linking the two lofted bedrooms. From the second bedroom, enjoy the captivating views of rolling hills to Nepean Bay. From the master bedroom, enjoy views of the beautiful Bay of Shoals. No matter where you are, wake up to the view of the ocean. Please note that each bedroom features walls for privacy, but no doors.

Warm yourself in front of the Nectre wood stove in the winter months. Enjoy the afternoon sun from the large covered and uncovered deck.

In the spring, you will be mesmerised by the bright yellow hues from the canola crop planted on undulating hills to the edge of Nepean Bay. During summer, you will be calmed by the sunset across the gum trees.

Property

This 5 acre property includes a Native Vegetation Reserve, providing guests with plenty of opportunities for exploration and wildlife encounters. You will spy kangaroos and wallabies from the window as you prepare your evening meal.

Locality

Shoal Bay is a very popular area for those that enjoy their privacy while not having to be in a remote location.

The house is mere minutes from Kingscote, Bay of Shoals boat ramp, Bay of Shoals Winery and Emu Bay beach. It serves as the perfect point to explore both east and west ends of the island, or as a quiet setting to just relax.

With the boat ramp only a short distance away, enjoy fishing on some very reliable and favourite spots around Kingscote and beyond.

Great views but very uncomfortable sleep

  • 4 of 5

The sea loaf does have beautiful views, the set up of the apartment is great, good utilities and the open plan worked for us. The only issue we had was with the mattresses, our 4 month old daughter slept soundly in her porter cot, while her sleep deprived parents lay uncomfortable and restless. Everything else in the apartment is wonderful though, fire, kitchen, bathroom, BBQ - recommend replacing the mattresses

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at Sea Loft. The fire kept the whole place cosy and warm and we loved seeing the visiting Kangaroos. It was so peaceful there, just what we needed to recharge our batteries. We would love to come back again.

Nice but incorrectly advertised

  • 3 of 5

The loft was tidy but was advertised as a 3 bed which it definately wasn't- very open with no privacy in either bedroom as the rooms have no doors

The ultimate relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this house and it's surroundings. The open plan design was light and airy and we appreciated the stylish art and decor. We explored most of the island and were amazed at the wildlife that exists all over the island. To be fair, we wouldn't have had to travel far to experience animals (we watched kangaroos, an echidna, blue wrens and wallabies from the deck at Sea Loft). We hope to return to this special place in the world.
