About the property

There are 6 cabins. Four were built in 1984 and two in 2015 (Stormy Petrel and Cygnet ) reopened in April 2015. All of the cabins have an unrivaled location on KI's most spectacular ocean beach. Abundant wildlife including whales in winter. Located at the gateway to Flinders Chase on the 5000 acre Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary.

Isolation and privacy in a stunning ocean front location.

Safe swimming beach and river.

Stormy Petrel and Cygnet are large one bedroom cabins 56 square meters in size with queen size bed plus a pullout sofa in the living room and a slow combustion wood fire. Fully equipt modern kitchen.The 2 cabins have an interconnecting door so can be rented as one. It is SA's coolest beach destination. We have many repeat guests.Some claim they have come 20 times ( sorry we lost count).

Many make their first visit in summer with their children for a beach holiday and then keep returning in other seasons. In winter sometimes whales can be seen and heard from your arm chair.

There are 4 two bedroom "Rustic" cabins divided by a communal bbq and dining area. This 8 bedroom "compound" is regularly booked by large family groups seeking a wilderness beach holiday. It is also popular with hiking,birdwatching and photography groups.

Fully equipt kitchen and simple bath room. Double bed in master with 2 singles in second bedroom.

Surprise charges and clean up after yourself.

Advertised $238 per night for 2 bd cabin showing photos of new furniture, not the cottage we stayed in. My booking didn't get confirmed and expired so I called to to see if they can still validate 2 days before trip. Apparently $238 covers only 2 persons using a 2 bdrm cabin and does not include cleaning costs and single night costs. We were advised that the fee was $15pp additional guests and $50 cleaning free for single night stay. However they charged us $110 on top of base price. Don't forget the house rules clean up after yourself! Can you imagine the state of dishes considering they dont do a full clean after each guest leaves. Sticky. Location is awesome but disappointed with service and value for money.

Excellent location and property

  • 5 of 5

Spent 2 days at Hanson Bay and would have loved to stay longer. Stayed in cabin called Storm Petrel which had amazing views up the coast. Cabin roomy and well equipped. If larger group cabin interconnects to one beside. Kelly was very welcoming and helpful would definitely recommend this stop to all
