“Porky Beach House- A real paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

From the moment you set foot on King Island, you are treated like royalty. The beach house is amazing, we stayed with our 3 children and they had an amazing time. When you arrive, you have fresh bread, a basket of local cheese, fruits and a platter of delicatessen waiting for you. Alexandra was there to welcome us, helped with our luggage and even made arrangements for us to surf in the amazing beaches of the island. The people are so nice you feel at home immediately. We snorkeled, jogged on the beach, had the whole coast to ourselves. The kitchen is an invitation to cook and the food 5crayfish, cheese, etc.) is just there waiting for you. We have travelled in many place but Porky Beach will remain unique and we will go back!

We stay here every quarter and love the whole experience from the warm and hospitable homely touches to the breath-taking sea views.
Alex does an amazing job everytime and yet still finds another way to improve our stay each visit.
Will be back for years to come!!

Our recent visit to King Island was wonderful. We arrived on the island after having a short and smooth flight from Melbourne and were greeted warmly by Alexander who immediately made us feel at home and very welcome. Alexander gave us a detailed run down of the island and things to do . She generously offered to take our bags back to the house while we headed off for breakfast.We were so pleasantly suprised to find lots of goodies in store back at the house .There was something for everyone, kids and adults. Way above the call of duty and much appreciated. The house and kitchen is so wonderfully appointed that you could host a dinner party for the locals !! The beach itself is wonderful and we looked forward at the start and end of every day to visit"our beach", spectacular and different every day. We cannot wait to return and thanks again to the wonderful Alexander and King island breaks, probably best place i have stayed in Australia.

I stayed here with my husband, 14 month old daughter, my sister, her husband and their 4 year old. Our wonderful trip started with the most amazing and warm welcome at the airport. Your host will make you feel like a friend. The house was amazing - could easily live there! Enough room to not feel crowed, heavenly views. What felt like a private beach at the bottom of the dune, hit with the kids. KI locals are welcoming. Come if you want to get away from it all and really relax. You can even tell others that you will be out of contact!

We recently had the privilege of being the first guests at King Island Breaks' latest property, "Turnstone". Sitting within a stone's throw of the beach and not a living sole to be seen for miles, this is the place to really get away and relax. An amazing personal welcome when we arrived and departed made for a great experience. A six star set up with all the luxury you need to feel a king and queen surveying your own lands and the sea for miles around. Close though to the airport and the main township of Curry and, just as importantly, you are near neighbours of the famous King Island Cheese factory. Treat yourself to a once in a lifetime experience. Being greedy we are going to be making many trips in a lifetime back. The only downside? You are so blissed out at the property you have to push yourself to get out and see the rest of the Island!

Room Tip: Three bedrooms. One main with en suite, one double room and one twin share.

This house is beautiful with everything you could want or need. The ocean view is wonderful and after 3 days we felt absolutely recharged and relaxed. We used the house as a base and had some wonderful walks and meals around the island. This is easily the best house I have ever stayed in - very comfortable.

Our stay at Porky was fantastic. Friends celebrating a milestone birthday, another birthday and wedding anniversary, crayfish, Cheese, King Island Beef, a wonderful meal cooked by Russell, attention to detail by Alexandra - all truly memorable. Loved the golf course, the scenery the beaches, the wildlife, King Island is really special. We will return!
