Overview

Photos and Description of this Baudin Beach holiday house

Aquamarine is a 3 bedroom house located just behind a dune, right next to a safe swimming beach. It has a light, spacious feeling and plenty of room for larger families or groups. The master bedroom has a king size bed and own bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped and even has a dishwasher. Aquamarine is ideal for longer stays all year round. It is well insulated, has a powerful reverse cycle air conditioner / heater and electric blankets on all beds. The back verandah is quite big, overlooks the dune and has a BBQ as well as seating. The house has a pleasant green outlook but there is no sea view. In 2016, the house got freshly painted, many appliances replaced and furniture updated.

Beach access is immediately behind the house with no street between. The beach is great to explore, is fairly sheltered and there is great fishing from the rocks. There are extensive warm shallows for children to enjoy but also an easy access spot to deep water. You can expect to see a lot of wildlife and the sea is teeming with fish. At the same time, you would only be a short drive from the shops, making life considerably easier.

There is NBN broadband WiFi installed in the house and is free for the guests to use. One can even stream movies or play games if you bring your computer.

Well behaved pets may be permitted by individual arrangement but the garden is not fenced.

Location

Located on the North Coast of the fabulous Kangaroo Island, Baudin Beach is a small settlement of about 100 houses, 5 km East from Island Beach and 10 km West from Penneshaw ferry terminal. There is a good supermarket and several eateries at Penneshaw but no food is sold at Baudin Beach. The place is great for fishing and diving with a good boat ramp down the street and a dive shop around the corner. The area is greener and less windy than the South coast of the island. Sheltered waters of Eastern Cove are renown for plentiful King George Whiting. There is a gorgeous, safe and largely private beach just behind the house. The main highway leading to all the island attractions is only a couple of hundred meters away.

Sleeping configuration

The main bedroom has a king size bed and an ensuite bathroom. The second bedroom has a queen bed and the third has a king single and a bunk bed. There are now 3 new sofa beds in the living area, providing additional sleeping if necessary. There is also a portacot available for a baby.

Worst Accomodation ever with Owner to match

  • 1 of 5

Aquamarine is by far, the worse accomodation ever offered.

I booked to stay here on February 27th to 1st March and the accomodation was not satisfactory. We left and never stayed a night.

Upon check in, the following issues :

1 Tv did not work. Manager spent an hour unscrewing the tv and could not fix it. Advised a technician could take 8 days.

2. Smoke detector not working due to battery ripped out

3. Rubbish

4 Others peoples belongings throughout the house.

I decided to leave as a main reason for my holiday was to be able to relax and unwind by being able to watch tv which was a feature.

This owner was suppose to call. Never did. I had to chase her and after being nice and asking for a refund she hanged up on me. She relisted the property the same night. She lied to Stayz the booking place and is an extremely nasty person.

I have now been forced to take legal action.

Do not stay here as if the property is not up to scratch, its your fault and she will refuse and lie in order to keep your money.
