De Coudie Beach House

  • SUMMARY
  • DETAILS
  • VIDEO

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.

Accommodation

The 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.

There are three main 'wings' to the house - the main north living wing, the secondary bedroom wing, and the lower bunkhouse. All are separated by and linked with a generous entry, stair hall on each level. All proportions in the house are generous with bi-folding doors creating a magnificent indoor/outdoor feel in the main areas. Despite the generous proportions on the house, it is barely visible from the beach, or indeed any of the surrounds.

Activities

The 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.

For the majority of the year, beach conditions are absolutely superb with the calm turquoise waters of Eastern Cove providing an inviting and safe water wonderland. You can stroll for as long as you wish just enjoying the tranquility and natural surroundings or marvel at the range of sea shells lying in rows on the glistening sand.

You may elect to enjoy a glass of champagne on the beach of an evening while watching a stunning sunset.

On the odd days, 'Mother Nature' may show you her other side providing a stark contrast and the opportunity to experience the windswept Island life and immerse yourself in the latest best seller, prepare an exotic evening meal or visit one of the fine cellar door outlets within easy driving distance. No matter what time of the year the De Coudie Beach House and surrounds will provide you with a memorable and unforgettable beach experience.

Outback Encounter can also arrange for private touring with an expert guide to help you explore Kangaroo Isalnd.
