De Coudie Beach House
The De Coudie Beach House is located in a wonderfully pristine location at Island Beach on Kangaroo Island off the coast of South Australia. The setting is remote and private, the house set amongst the sandhills with the living areas at the height of the tree tops, with a wide panorama of the beautiful blue waters of Eastern Cove, yet the building is barely visible from the beach or the water.
Approaching the house along the bush lined driveway keep an eye out for local residents such as kangaroos, wallabies, goannas or echidnas. On the way to the house you will be struck by the rich and varied colours of the local flora. It is not until you are inside the house that you are presented with the panoramic views of the bay, and the tranquility and splendour of this unique location becomes evident.
AccommodationThe De Coudie Beach House was designed by Sydney Architect, Prue Murdoch, whose brief was to create a modern, livable design that blended with the natural environment and nestled into the sand hills.
ActivitiesThe 3 kilometres of pristine sand and beautiful waters of Island Beach is accessed by a short 1 minute stroll through the dunes from De Coudie. You will be struck by the pure clarity of the water and the brilliant white of the fine beach sands. While strolling on the beach or swimming in the clear pristine waters, do not be surprised if the only company you have are dolphins or seals playing and frolicking in the normally calm conditions.
