Are you looking for that magic place to rest and relax or do you want to venture out and explore the outdoors?
The Far West of the Eyre Peninsula has it all and the Ocean View Beach House in Elliston is the perfect place to enjoy this.
Fishing, surfing, windsurfing, swimming, diving, 4WDing on the endless beaches, it's all just a skip and a hop away. Golfing - try the Eliston golf links and reward yourself with a glass of splendid South Australian Red on the veranda, watching the spectacular sunset over the Great Australian Bight.
The Elliston Ocean View Beach Bouse is set up to give you the joy and comfort of life by the ocean and the ease and functionality of a home away from home for you and your family and friends. Yes! with 5 bedrooms and a capacity of 12 guests, there is room for everyone; and their dogs - kept safely in the closed back yard.
The base rental includes the well equipped main house withe two bedrooms to comfortably sleep five and with room to spare for a little one. The house features a modern kitchen with all the facilities and conveniences and a large dining/living area with TV and the magnificent view over Waterloo Bay and the Great Australian Bight beyond. Three more bedrooms exist in a separate building to sleep another seven people (additional charges apply).
All rooms are air conditioned and have fans. Towels and linen are provided and for those who stay longer we offer a weekly cleaning service (charges apply). Out the back in the enclosed yard you find a protected veranda with comfortable seating and a small sandbox for the little ones. Pets are welcome and safe to stay.
The front yard has a small covered veranda to sit back after the activities of the day and watch those magnificent West Coast sunsets.
Elliston is about seven hours drive from Adelaide on Flinders Hwy; about 170km north of Port Lincoln and 120km south of Streaky Bay.
The Elliston Ocen View beach house is a short ten minute walk from the center of Elliston township with a convenience store, bakery, pharmacy, pub, motel, hadware store, hospital and the community hall with a small shop and internet acces. A petrol station makes sure you will not run out of fuel for your coastal adventures. Elliston has a small airport that can be reached by charter or small aircraft.
Out the front of the house is a small shallow beach where a tinny can be moored (if you are chasing the whiting in the bay), while the beautiful white sandy Elliston town beach offers a sheltered water for the toddlers and kids.
Just north of the township you will find Anxious Bay with its shallow protected waters, perfect for families with kids swimming, snorkeling or building sand castles.
A short drive away the avid fisherman has access to the salmon beach fishing at Sheringa (60kmS), Locks Well (15kmS) the sheltered setting of Anxious Bay (4kmN) and Walkers Rock (12kmN) where anything can happen - try nightfishing about 1km along the beach for big surprises (experienced 4WD only due to difficult and changing conditions. It has become quite challenging recently, 2017).
SURFING / WINDSURFING
Waterloo Bay itself is an excellent spot for windsurfing with variable conditions for beginners and advanced sailors. Over at Walkers Rock the surf break is a great learning spot for beginners to advanced surfing and a great place for windsurfing with a small offshore reef with a great break (if conditions are right) for those who want to take their sail out in the waves.
Blacks, on the Elliston Peninsula is one of South Australia's finest and biggest waves but should only be attempted by experts - I mean it! When it fires, it is a world class and demanding spot - legendary.

What makes this House unique

Perfect beach house
We really enjoyed our stay, so much to see and do in the area, great scenery and a fantastic, friendly vibe in the town. The beach house is perfect for larger families, the extra rooms provided our older kids with their own space and has everything we required and was absolutely spotless on our arrival. It is a real credit to the owners and local staff. The fact that we could also bring our dog is much appreciated. We will return!
Great house to rent with a few friends or family, amazing views over the calm beach with the sounds of waves crashing over the rocks in the distance. Great location, couldn’t have picked a better spot to spend a weekend- leaving feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and happy! ??
P.s the caretaker of the property was kind enough to deliver us a box of her fresh peaches she grows locally which were absolutely delicious- can’t get much better then that!
Thanks for your kind words Chloe and geat to hear you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you back at the Ocean View Beach House.
Best Beach House
Elliston Beach House is absolutely amazing!! The view is incredible, beautifully clean and comfortable accommodation. We all loved it and wanted to stay longer. Thank you so much for sharing your Beautiful Beach House.
Thanks for your kind words Georgie. Hope to see you back at the Ocean View Beach House.
The Elliston Ocean View house is on the Esplanade of the township of Elliston, on the West coast of the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia. This stretch of coastline is one of the most spectacular in South Australia and if I may boast, of all of Australia. Vertical cliffs of a hundred meters, coves with sandy beaches, some only accessible by boat or helicopter, endless stretches of empty, pristine beaches and sand dunes inviting to explore. There is a beach here for every occasion; calm and sheltered for a picknick with the family or open surf beaches for fishing, swimming surfing, sailing.
Mentioning the spectacular salmon fishing at Locks Well and Sheringa seems as unnecessary as pointing out the excellent boat fishing outside waterloo bay,, around Waldegrave Islands, Flinders Island or the Investigator Group. You may need a bigger boat.
An undiscovered gem is the Lake Newland Park about 15km North of Elliston, entrance about 25km through Sheridan's Lane.
