Turnstone Beach House is an outstanding house ,specifically designed by coastal architect Paul Witzig for this site , to provide hideaways on the wonderful west coast of King Island. Turnstone combines privacy with stunning views and all that just 15 minutes from the Airport and 20 minutes to Currie . The house offers sweeping views of the mesmerising Southern Ocean sunsets and storms ; and of the surf rolling into the bay at Little Porky Beach. Large double glazed windows all round naturally frame the surrounding coastal landscape up and down the coast. It is a memorable experience to view the rolling surf, a sunset, or even have a comfortable and cosy front row seat to watch the " sound and light" of one of the big electrical storms that occasionally rolls in .

We were a group of 6 and had the most amazing stay at Turnstone. Fabulous location, right on the beach. We did not want to leave the beautiful location even though there were so many other locations to visit on King Island. Great advice from David for activities and Bianca welcomed us and even gave us a late check out which was wonderful as sharp airline had changed our flight to 530 pm. I would recommend Turnstone unreservedly as a fabulous King Island getaway.

It is wonderful that people can visit the Island again after two years of Covid disruption. Thanks for your comments and we are happy you enjoyed your stay . The West Coast of King Island is beautiful and Turnstone was built to sit comfortably and snugly overlooking the Southern Ocean. Bianca does wonderful job Come again

Enjoyed a recent family stay at Turnstone on King Island, a lovely property with quality finishes and a great family feel. Very well positioned with views that need to be seen to be believed. A deck option for all weather conditions. We will be back.

Thank you for coming and for your kind comments. We agree Turnstone is ideal for a family. It has space and plenty of room to socialise together in the large living room and kitchen area; and the bedroom wing is very quiet due to the internal design that separates the sleeping area from the living area ensuring peace and quiet for those who might want to go to bed earlier than others. You are right about the weather. In good weather the sunsets from the deck are beautiful but we also love the the spectacular storms out over the Southern Ocean that occasionally blow in. Turnstone was built to cope with those...comfort and a " dress-circle" view from behind the double glazed glass...and in cooler weather a big woodfire We are happy you enjoyed the location and house

We were fortunate to book Turnstone Beach House for 4 nights this week on a golf trip to King Island. We were a party of 8 so also took an adjoining property- Wave Retreat. We used Turnstone as the "base". Exceptionally clean and well presented with three good bedrooms with wonderfully comfortable beds. Two bathrooms. It is in an amazing location, with knock-out views and with a 100m walk to the beach. We didn't swim but we were amazed at the pleasant temperature of the water - note: pack swimmers for our next trip! The main living area provided ample space for our whole group to lounge and dine. The weather was so mild we did drinks on the outside terrace one night and that was ideal with the late sunset. We dined at Turnstone for 3 nights and we organized a chef to come in for our "farewell dinner". We often book holiday houses and we voted the kitchen equipment/utensils/crockery the best we have experienced. Also used the BBQ two nights. Turnstone Beach House is about 8 minutes by car to Currie for restaurants and shops. Played Ocean Shores GC twice as it was only 5 minutes away. Cape Wickham GC was about 40 minutes drive north. The owner had kindly twice "rolled" our booking due to Covid restrictions prior. Bianca (the on-site manager) was very efficient in dealing with our queries and helpful with suggestions

Thank you for coming and taking the time to " review " us. Of course we are very happy you liked Turnstone ( and Wave Retreat) and had a good time. We agree the Golf courses are spectacular . Using both houses is popular for small groups as they are so close together ( yet totally private from each other) and Turnstone makes an ideal base for entertainment . We too love sitting on the deck enjoying the sunsets ( and sometimes spectacular electrical storms out over the Southern Ocean) Bianca has been a terrific addition to the team since she joined us a few months ago Come again...you were a great group and we appreciated that.....David

Spectacular setting . Dramatic views of Bass strait. Beautifully presented property with all the amenities. Absolutely the best place to be for a golf holiday in King Island Surrounded by the wildlife . Close enough to Currie and all the golf courses but still with a wonderful sense of isolation.

We were 3 couples staying at Turnstone - what a beautiful property in the most amazing location. You can spend hours just enjoying the changing views from different directions. The house is so well equipped with everything you need around the kitchen & to enjoy the 12 seater dining table. Loved the nice touch of the local cheeses and food basics. Communication's with Tara and David was first class.

Jannette we are very happy you and your friends enjoyed King Island and Turnstone Beach House and it is nice of you to take the time to post a Review. I agree- that King Island cheese is wonderful. We love Turnstone and appreciate being able to see , even from the living room, both the wonderful sunsets over the Southern Ocean AND on occasions spectacular storms . And isn't it nice, in these strange times, to be able to take an " overseas trip? Best wishes David
