The accommodation was so good and the cheese etc provided by our helpful hostess Alex so good that we bought some King Island steak and ate in.

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed October 17, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

What a wonderful place to stay! The 2 bed apartment is on the ground floor of a two story house. It is very private and peaceful with its own entrance and car space.The apartment is beautifully appointed and immaculately clean......everything is quality from the bed linen to the Nespresso machine to the bathrobes in the cupboard. The view of the ocean and over the golf course from the living room was spectacular especially at sunset. It is like 'a home away from home' with all the little extras... Foxtel, wifi, books and magazines, kitchen essentials, pantry supplies as well as fresh milk and bread, and a selection of King island cheeses provided. The apartment is very close -- just a few minutes walk-- to the town centre, the lighthouse, museum, Currie harbour, and the beach. A car is available for hire to tour the island.
Alex & Russell are the perfect hosts .They couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful to ensure we had a wonderful experience on King Island.I had mentioned to Alex that we were intending to play golf the day of our arrival. She phoned a day or two beforehand and suggested that we change the golf day due to the bad weather forecast( which turned out to be correct... cold , windy and wet!) which we did and had the most fabulous day (dry, sunny and no wind!) on the course.Thanks, Alex.
They were also very helpful with suggesting restaurants( Oleada's is a must!) and
must see places to visit.
Alex & Russell also have a house at Porky's beach ..... for larger groups, complete with hot tub and sauna!
Thank you Alex & Russell for a wonderful stay far beyond expectations.You were such warm and friendly hosts who spoilt us in so many ways. Till next time @ Porky's perhaps!

Dear kayowed, Well what a delightful group you were, an absolute pleasure to welcome to King Island and Alexandra's. Thank you so much for your endorsing comments, it really confirms, we love what we do!!

I'm so glad that golf game was made extra special by swapping it, to a day where the weather was just perfect. That's probably one of the great bonuses, when you are visiting the island for a longer stay. Look very much forward to welcoming you again when you visit and like you said, most likely to Porky Beach Retreat. Hope you received your kindle in the mail, safely by now.

Kind regards

“A delightful home away from home, exceeding all expectations”
Reviewed October 17, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

This perfectly appointed " home away from home" exceeded all my expectations. The two bedrooms and living area have everything you need with the perfect little touches that make you feel like you are somewhere special. A fully appointed kitchen including BBQ complements the amazing King Island produce.

The Currie lighthouse is a stones throw away, with the rest of Currie in easy walking distance for Alexandra's. Alexandra and Russell are the perfect hosts, making sure that your stay exceeds all expectations.

I would highly recommend this accommodation as one of the best on the island. You wont be disappointed.

Reviewed September 9, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We couldn't have been made more welcome by our beautiful hosts, Alexandra and Russell. The apartment was stunning, with everything we could possibly need provided, including the rental of their lovely new Mercedes.
The position was perfect, with a view over the ocean and walking distance to everything. Highly recommended!

Dear toddspinks17,
It was a pleasure to have you both stay during your 2 week business trip to King Island. When travelling for so long, it's a joy to offer somewhere, that can be your home away from home and has all the extras and more that make it an enjoyable stay. I look forward to welcoming you back, when you next visit our shores.

Kind regards

“Best Air BnB we have ever holidayed in,ocean views and location close to town centre.”
Reviewed August 15, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Best Air BnB I have ever holidayed in has been tastefully decorated with so much attention to detail.We were blown away by the majestic view from the dining area and lounge room. We cooked our King Island beef on BBQ in a private outdoor area for our exclusive use.Beds were so comfortable we wanted to take one home with us.
Location was fantastic short stroll to centre of town and beach. Hosts were amazing!
Value for money 10 out of 10
