The kitchen contains all the utensils and appliances you would expect to find in a city home.

House rules

We are proud of our property and ask guests to treat the house and all of the contents with respect.  Naturally an accident can happen and in this case we ask that guests notify us if there has been any breakages or damage.  On the whole this can be easily rectified, but can cause an issue if left as missing glasses, kitchen items or non functional appliances can affect the next guests enjoyment of the property.

Please do not exceed the number of guests booked.  This will result in loss of the bond.  Should you have a change to your plans and wish to increase the number just let us know and we can adjust any monies owed and make sure the property is ready for that number of guests.

We run entirely on rain water.  This is a finite amount and only replenished when it rains.  Please be aware of this and do not leave taps running or have long showers.  

Other travellers enjoy the peace and serenity of our unique island location, we ask that guests do not make excessive noise or play music late into the night.

We have a guest information folder which has lots of suggestions of holiday activities and some general household tips for guests.

Things that guests will need to bring.

We supply blankets, quilts, pillows and tea towels unless you have requested linen.

You will need to bring your own bathroom towels, face washers, and hand towels unless you request linen, when they will be supplied for you. 

A modest supply of dishwashing liquid, dishwasher powder, soap, and 2 rolls of toilet paper per bathroom is also provided.

These items are supplied as part of the booking however they are just the basics and we would ask people to keep in mind that it is a self-contained property and that they should cater for their own needs in these areas.

All food requirements and drinks are the guests’ responsibility and can be brought to the Island or purchased in Penneshaw or Kingscote.

Any cancellations must be in writing a minimum of 60 days (peak) or 30 days (other) prior to occupation date.  If received within this time frame the client will receive 50% of their deposit.  Should the cancellation occur less than 60/30 days prior to the occupation date the whole deposit and/or other monies paid will be forfeited unless the property is rebooked.  The owners will make every effort to ensure the property is available as booked, however reserve the right to make alterations to bookings due to unforeseen circumstances and in this case a full refund will be paid.

A bond of $500 is required at the time the final payment is made.  This is fully refundable provided the Terms & Conditions of stay are adhered to.

Damage, Breakages, Theft and Loss are the tenants’ responsibility during their stay.

Departure - the property should be left in a similar state to its condition on arrival. Check-out time is 10.00am by the latest, to allow time to prepare the property for next guests.

Disturbance to our neighbours, including excessive noise, is prohibited and may result in termination of rental and loss of bond.

For the protection of the wildlife and the chances of other guests being allergic to animals Pets are not allowed.  If this condition of rental is ignored there will be an immediate loss of bond and the rental shall be terminated.

Loss - the owners take no responsibility for the tenant’s personal property.

Variations to these conditions may only be made by prior arrangements with the owner in writing.

"Excellent accommodation & Peaceful surroundings" We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful house & the morning walks along the beach where so peaceful, we felt more at home than on holidays. The layout of the well equipped kitchen, utensils , pantry area and bbq where top notch so that even a mere male could find his way round with ease. We found the bed to be most comfortable and enjoyed listening to the water lapping on the beach.. Overall we enjoyed staying at Beachcomber and will highly recommend to those we know who love to travel....Cheers ChrisMac

"Perfect holiday house on stunning Island Beach" Beachcomber is the perfect holiday house with everything you require. Gorgeous view from the deck, and you step through some trees and enjoy one of the most stunning beaches in Australia with barely a soul in sight. The house and beach are also great for families (we had a one year old). This was our second stay and we will be back again!
