About the property

Sunrise Spectacular is magnificently located halfway up the hill, just outside Penneshaw, with stunning ocean views looking all the way back to mainland Australia. Get up early and watch the sun come up over the picturesque township of Penneshaw, out of the ocean or from behind mainland Australia, depending on the season you choose to come and stay on beautiful Kangaroo Island.

This character laden, architectually designed home makes you feel welcome and calm the moment you walk in. It has successfully blended the older style original stone home with the substantial modern extensions featuring north facing glass windows, high ceiling and a spacious open plan living.

Sunrise Spectacular is welcoming people of all ages and from all walks of life.


FAMILIES with young children will enjoy the child friendliness of the house. Children have lots of space to play indoors and outdoors. The property has all around fencing which is fitted in a way to optimise blending in with its natural surroundings.

GROUPS of FRIENDS are most welcome. The spacious open living plan is naturally inviting for everyone to sit down at the dinner table or relax with a glass of wine on the sofa. Preparing a meal in the fully equiped kitchen has never been more fun.

COUPLES seeking privacy and romance will not be disappointed. Whether it is getting up early to connect with the first light and a spectacular sunrise, waking up looking at a ray of sunlight across your lover's face, having breakfast on one of the terraces with infinite ocean views or simply relaxing and absorbing the house's natural energies.

BUSINESSES interested in Team Building weekends and Workshops are encouraged to choose this venue. Feeling aligned with your natural surroundings enhances learning and helps re-establishing relationships. Kangaroo Island is the perfect location to combine the physical with the mind.

INDIVIDUALS looking for Respite and Recovery after surgery or treatment. The natural and calming energies radiating from the house and its surroundings can contribute to an increased sense of well being. Special rates apply and can be negotiated on a case by case basis.


Sunrise Spectacular offers 4 SPACIOUS BEDROOMS.

3 bedrooms that can each be converted to either a KIng size, Double or 2 Singles.

1 bedroom has a solid bunk bed.

All bedrooms are located in the older style section of the house which helps to keep the rooms nice and cool over summer. Each room has been given a name and has its own special feel.

From the LOVE bedroom & the DREAM bedroom you have beautiful ocean views and spectacular sunrises.

The BELIEF bedroom is positioned between the DREAM & the CREATE (bunk) bedroom. From the BELIEF & the CREATE bedroom you wake up to a view of beautiful rolling hills full of grazing sheep (and the odd kangaroo:)

A luxurious and spacious BATHROOM with shower, toilet, soaking bath tub to relax in, wash basin and large mirror is also located in the older style section of the house. A second toilet is located closer to the spacious open plan living.

The spacious OPEN PLAN LIVING is really the Heart and Soul of the house!


This is the area where everyone gathers for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The fully equipped kitchen is perfectly positioned and a joy to cook in. It's here where you can relax on the comfy sofa, the rocking chair, watch the ferry coming and going and stay cool during the summer months or sit around the fireplace when the nights get cool again.

Choose a spot in or out the sun from multiple outdoor TERRACES and GARDEN. From every corner of the house, you can enjoy breathtaking views and absorb the natural calming energies.

The PLAYGROUND is the pavement area inside the roller door as well as the two grass areas.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this house. It was large enough to accommodate our family with 4 spacious bedrooms. The fire added a lovely warm touch alongside the freshly made cake we received upon checking in. The views were amazing either watching the sunshine on the ocean or the winter weather while snuggled up inside by the fire. The owners of the house were a delight to deal with, helping me out on many occasions. I highly recommend this property.

Fantastic House. Totally Accessible. Great Value.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for only four days but later wished we had booked for much longer! The property owner (Tineke) was a joy to communicate with; she kept us in the loop on everything we needed... from answering our initial queries regarding booking, accessibility, SeaLink bookings -- even helping us to synchronise our check in/out times with ferry arrival and departure times.

The house is impressively well stocked with appliances, you won't need to bring anything, and the kitchen/dining area is not only HUGE but has a sunrise ocean view of Australia to die for! Thoroughly recommended for large families or a group of friends looking for some time out from the city rat race...You will not be disappointed!!!
