The Eyrie - coastal retreat

Family-friendly holiday home in Marion Bay
Enjoy the beautiful coastal lifestyle of Marion Bay and Innes National Park. There is something here for everyone - surfing, fishing, native birds and wildlife, beautiful beaches and spectacular coastline to explore.

At 28 Osprey Drive, the Eyrie Holiday House is right on the boundary of the National Park, and is only five minutes walk from Willyama Beach. Backing down onto a reserve, this pole home takes in sweeping views of native scrub and salt lakes.

The Eyrie can accommodate up to nine people. It has four bedrooms - two queens and one double, and the fourth bedroom has a bunk plus a single bed. We have a portable cot and high chair available for use. There is one bathroom, with a second WC in the laundry.

Linen is not supplied, guests provide their own sheets, pillow cases and towels.

The central area has a generous open plan kitchen, dining and living area, satellite TV and video/dvd. A wall of north facing windows let the winter sun pour in and provides cross ventilation for the summer sea breeze . Cooling and heating are supported by a split system air conditioner in the central living area and overhead and standing fans in the bedrooms.

The kitchen is well equipped with a family sized fridge, electric oven, induction cooktop, rangehood, dishwasher, microwave, slow cooker, toaster, kettle, cookware, crockery and cutlery. Enjoy beautiful sunsets out on the deck, which has an outdoor table setting and gas bbq.


Marion Bay is located at the Southern most tip of the Yorke Peninsula. It borders the Innes National Park, with rugged coastline, historic sites, nature walks, and excellent fishing and surfing spots. The Marion Bay tavern serves excellent meals and hospitality. There is a local jetty and boat ramp for the fishers. Penguin Point and Willyama Beach offer good safe swimming locations, especially for children.


The Eyrie is an elevated pole home which takes in unobstructed sweeping native scrub, national park and salt lake views. The house backs down onto a reserve, overlooked by the main balcony and second private balcony attached to the main bedroom (both north facing). This bedroom also has direct access to the two-way bathroom.


We do allow dogs however as the property is unfenced, our preference is to keep them secure on the balcony. Our neighbour has chickens so please keep your pooch supervised and under effective control outside. If brought inside, please keep them off the beds and furniture and ensure that all hair is thoroughly cleaned prior to departure. Excess cleaning fees may apply where these conditions are not met.
Air-conditioned accommodation at this holiday home offers DVD players. Rooms open to balconies or patios. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils.
