About Fiona McLeay

My parents purchased this property as their "go to" for weekends away from the bustle of the city. My son, daughter in law and grand daughter love spending time at Breeze. It is perfect for beachcombing, safe swimming and coastal walks. I manage the property when it is not being used by the family.

Fiona McLeay purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Fiona McLeay chose Encounter Bay

Encounter Bay is a quiet and pretty seaside town. It is close enough to the town of Victor Harbor to make shopping, cooking and eating out simple. The apartment has sensational views out over the Bay and is perfect for a couple or small family holiday.

What makes this apartment unique

Breeze is on the top floor of a 3 story building, however you can access it directly from the car park, meaning no steps need to be negotiated and you still have stunning views.

There is a fantastic boardwalk in front of the apartment where guests can walk or ride the length of the bay. There are good little restaurants and cafes within walking distance.
