Welcome to Porky Beach Retreat. This is quintessential Australian coastline holidaying at its most awe inspiring. Waking up in this two-level with ceiling to floor glass home is surreal. While away the hours in this luxury beachfront retreat, watching nature’s wild, beauty and ever-changing panorama. Its iconic facilities overlooking the ocean have to be seen, to be believed. There is nothing else quite like it. Unique & Luxurious. See our second listing for Porky Beach Retreat - Couple pricing

The space
Situated on a secluded and private peninsula, Porky Beach Retreat offers the privacy of a holiday home with facilities of a resort.

Located on the majestic west coast, Porky Beach Retreat is just 8 minutes drive from the main township of Currie. Touching down at the King Island Domestic Airport (KNS), a five minute drive will have you entering the gates of Porky, which is surrounded by coastal hills, bushes and vegetation.

You'll then enter a place of privacy where this retreat uniquely to all others, cannot be seen by passing vehicles. What awaits upon reaching the top of the secluded property, is a spectacular panorama and a stunning natural backdrop with awe inspiring views.

Elegant but laid back, Porky Beach Retreat will delight you with luxury touches throughout. With spacious rooms and areas, all making the most of the spectacular views of the ocean, you will not be disappointed!

The interiors have an easy coastal and tonal aesthetic with tonnes of natural light. The kitchen and living feature glass sliding doors opening up to the generous outdoor entertaining area and deck.

A rotating fireplace, which is a piece of art in itself and makes the enjoyment of sitting by this fire a special occasion. Textured floors all have rugs, creating warmth and softness.

The stylish commercially approved kitchen with stone benches, puts this property on the wish list for the guest who loves to cook. It has an impressive central island so-positioned to maximise the sea views. Top of the range modern appliances and a butlers pantry make this a great cooks kitchen. On request, catering can be organised for any dining preference, from picnic hampers, a King Island bbq to enjoying a dinner with the finest of King Island's produce. The stocked wine fridge and comprehensive "honest bar" is provided for your enjoyment. The award winning Ziegler & Brown bbq, is in a class of its own and guests regularly comment on the perfection of their King Island Beef.

The outdoor sunken hot tub and sauna are something to experience. An Australian first, with the sauna heater from Estonia, the red cedar was shipped from Canada but hand made on King Island (tongue and groove) An architectural masterpiece! With an outdoor stainless steel hot shower in the shape of a surfboard and completed with mosaic tiles, this is no ordinary holiday retreat.

Guest access
You will have private access to the whole Beach House and the surrounding property which has amazing beach walks and coastal land to explore.
