Alchemy on Island Beach - Kangaroo Island, South Australia

Family fun at the shore
It is no surprise that Alchemy is the most popular beach house on Island Beach, Kangaroo Island. A perfect size with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. When our guests walk in they have one word - STUNNING. The water views are breathtaking, uninterrupted and endless. The large stacking deck windows open completely to the huge sundeck, making for great marine wildlife watching, having your morning Nespresso, or passing the day relaxing with a good book. Lazing on the beach, long walks and fossicking are another favourite activity. There are endless choices to feast on the fresh and simply amazing local food offered on this special Island.

Alchemy is a contemporary beach house with modern style furnishings, an absolute seafront location and spectacular 180 degree views. Only 50 steps from deck to the safe swimming beach with its beautiful soft white sand, so close you can laze on the deck and watch and hear your children playing on the beach!! Uniquely situated as one of the very few beach houses with no road in front!!

Enjoy over 2kms of beach for leisurely walks and perfect swimming. Great fishing, with King George Whiting being the catch of the day.

Barbeque, market umbrella and comfortable teak outdoor furniture makes your sundeck the centre of relaxation!

A fish cleaning station is provided to clean your catch and the pelicans are always waiting on the beach to eat the leftovers!

With superior facilities with accommodation for up to 6 people, we can't wait to have you stay and share our perfect piece of paradise.

5/5 Excellent

Stunning beach location
Came here with my husband and baby. The house was in a stunning location right on the water front. Woke up to incredible views. Can walk to the beach through a little path. Had the beach to ourselves too! House was well fitted with all things you need. Owner friendly and accommodating for our baby, with a cot and change mat. Very handy! No wifi though which would be useful as my phone internet coverage was slow. Loved every minute of our family holiday. Can’t wait to come back!

4/5 Good

Magnificent view
A beautiful setting, absolute beachfront.

Just Relax
Exquisite views from lounge and living room , wildlife galore, great suggestions from Lori ( highly recommend Emu Bay Fishing Charter & Dudley Estate Winery) Island Beach is paradise

4/5 Good

Serenity by the C
Lovely, quiet location. Beach walks, bush native animals/plants were a must. Property was great. Had everything you needed for a comfortable stay. View was amazing, however, would be good to clean glass doors prior to arrival to enjoy the view. Understand sea spray can be a problem to keep on top of but, would have been nice. Suggest to shop for essentials prior to arriving. Shops are few and far between. The amenities were more than adequate for our stay for cooking etc. Need to sort out the water pump, which is under back of house, makes a hell of a noise when guests use toilet/shower, taps, etc...back 2nd bedroom was particularly noisy. Overall, a lovely stay, would recommend.

5/5 Excellent

Just Beautiful
Everything about Alchemy was perfect. The location overlooking the beach is amazing, the house is well designed, tastefully furnished and has everything you need for a very comfortable stay. The highlight was sitting on the front deck watching the dolphins swim by. We loved everything about our stay here. Lori was very easy to deal with and provided us with information on what things to do and see on the island.
