About this property

Ocean View overlooking Vivonne Bay

Riverside Property with kitchen and balcony
Ocean View on the south coast of Kangaroo Island is in a magnificent setting overlooking beautiful Vivonne Bay with the acclaimed beach just a minute’s walk away. Our modern and spacious holiday house offers self-catering accommodation with three bedrooms furnished with two queen beds and four bunk beds.

The fully equipped kitchen includes a large capacity fridge/freezer, ceramic cooktop, rangehood, oven & griller, microwave oven and an espresso coffee machine with real coffee supplied. Other appliances include an electric frypan and rice cooker. A laundry sink and washing line are available for guest use. Access to a washing machine used by our cleaner can be arranged for stays of four nights or longer (noting our limited rainwater supply).

Free Wi-Fi Internet is provided along with Foxtel satellite television and a large widescreen TV. Also a Bluetooth player which provides smartphone connectivity to fill the house with your favourite music.

The open-plan living area features a new 8-seat dining table with panoramic window views towards Vivonne Bay. Cypress pine flooring is installed in the living area, bedrooms and hallway.

Our three bedrooms provide options for one or two couples or a large family with kids (or adults) in the bunkroom. An infant cot can be set up on request along with a highchair.

The house is comfortable year-round with a new ducted reverse cycle air-conditioning system together with an overhead fan in the living area. Dual control electric blankets are fitted to the queen beds along with MiniJumbuk wool quilts for cosy winter nights. Extra pillows and blankets are available. A pedestal fan and ironing board are kept in the bunkroom.

The outside deck faces the Southern Ocean with stunning 180 degree views towards Nobby Islet and Cape Gantheaume, sweeping around to Point Ellen and the Vivonne Bay jetty [illuminated at night]. The deck is equipped with a table setting and a versatile 3-burner gas BBQ. A great spot to enjoy morning coffee and alfresco meals. Also waves crashing against the rocks at Point Ellen. And viewing gorgeous sunrises and sunsets.

The house is set amidst lush coastal vegetation bordering the beach. Local wildlife abounds with Tammar wallabies being frequent visitors below the deck. Various species of birds flit about including honeyeaters, superb fairywrens and endearing little striated pardalotes. We have installed nests for pardalotes which are prevalent in Spring and Summer.

Ocean View is perfectly located to enjoy the attractions offered by Vivonne Bay including walks along the pristine beach, swimming, surfing and fishing from the beach, jetty or nearby Harriet River. We are also ideally located relative to Kangaroo Island’s major tourist attractions, with Raptor Domain and Seal Bay lying to the east and Kelly Hill Caves, Admirals Arch, Remarkable Rocks and Flinders Chase National Park to the west. KI Wildlife Park, Stokes Bay and Hidden Beach lie to the north.

Local facilities include the Vivonne Bay General Store, jetty and boat ramp. Mobile phone coverage is provided by Optus and Telstra, noting that the Telstra signal is weak in Vivonne Bay.

Ocean View is an easy ~70 minute drive from the ferry terminal at Penneshaw and 40 minutes from Kingscote Airport.

We welcome you to Ocean View which we opened for guest accommodation in December 2017. Lying in bed at night and being lulled to sleep by the sound of breaking waves is an experience to be remembered.
Air-conditioned accommodation at this guesthouse offers espresso makers and coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to balconies. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils. Bathrooms include a shower and hairdryers.

5/5 Excellent

A lovely family stay at a beautiful KI location. Amazing view!
We really enjoyed staying at this house. The owners are very thoughtful and felt like we had everything we would need. Comfy beds, great heating and incredible views from the family room. It's so well positioned, one of the best at Vivonne I think, with views over green leafy trees to blue ocean and cliffs either side. Checking in very easy, and good communication with owner Ian. Vivonne is a great central spot, close to the best parts of KI in my opinion and very convenient to have the general store and petrol station nearby for such a remote place. We will come back here and hope to stay in this lovely home again.

5/5 Excellent

Comfortable and well set up
Good heating, clean, well stocked property, few mins walk to beach. Convenient location for flinders chase national park, little Sahara and seal bay. Very limited supplies at vivonne bay general store, very limited mobile reception. House warm in winter and owners kindly allowed us to access laundry (useful after 2 of us capsized while kayaking in nearby river!). Has internet but limited data allowance ( big sky muster satellite system).

5/5 Excellent

A home away from home
Our stay at ocean view really complimented beautiful KI. Ian and Ann are the perfect hosts and their very comfortable house has a lovely setting in the Vivonne Bay dunes. The views are second to none. We loved staying there!

5/5 Excellent
