“World class beach house with a personal touch”
Reviewed October 22, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Having stayed at luxury beach houses all over the world our three day stay at this little gem of property was right up there. Alexandra’s personal touch made all the difference to our group of very well traveled golfers. The house was great and would recommend it for small groups.

Dear Nicholas J,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review on Porky Beach Retreat. It was a pleasure having a chat with you and being able to look after your golfing boys trip away.

I appreciate your really kind words about the level of accommodation we offer, in relation to your regular golf travels overseas. For small groups it is perfect and your words reinforce the absolute delight I receive, in knowing that you think so very highly of Porky.

Till next time or perhaps even on the snow fields!!

Warmest regards
Alexandra

A short drive from the airport past the King Island Dairy cheese factory/shop and up the drive to Porkys Beach House. Walk in the front door to the most wonderful, beautiful home with the most stunning views to Bass Strait. 100 metres down to your own beach, a lovely, short walk left or right to about four more. Wallabies in the backyard. The kitchen has the best of everything, the beds are like clouds, the unbelievable shower view, the woodfire, the lounge. There is a sauna and a hot tub overlooking the ocean. Close to the number 1 and 3 golf courses in Australia, Close to The main township of Currie. We will be back as soon as possible. Thankyou Alex for being the best host and making our dreams come true. Incredible.

Dear Sean R,

Thank you so much for taking the time in doing a review. How lovely it was to welcome you and the family and to see the absolute joy and excitement you had as a family on arriving at Porky retreat. One a my little pleasures I get to witness!!
The beds, yes, they are amazing and the feedback has been nothing short of glowing, which is just wonderful. It is so important, that beds are a haven, when you are travelling. Recently purchased, they will stand in good stead over time.
Once again, I thank you for being a beautiful family and glad you made some wonderful memories with Dad & look forward to welcoming you, when you next return to King Island.

Warm regards
Alexandra

“Fantastic!!!!! Highly Recommended”
Reviewed October 7, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Four couples on a weekend away - better than we imagined. Alex looked after us and even catered for our 3 course meal including King Island crayfish and steak! The venue is great for relaxing - spa, sauna and what a view.
We'll be back.

“10 out of 10 - Unbelievable”
Reviewed October 5, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

I am not someone who tends to write many reviews, however I had to share this unique accommodation retreat. Arrived for a week of relaxation, golf and eating King Island's amazing produce. I have travelled the world extensively and this would be the first time, I have ever experienced an amazing wood sauna situated outside, overlooking the beach and ocean. It is simply to die for. The views can't be captured as to how it is, when walking through the door. On top of also having a sunken red cedar hot tub, it was magic. The retreat has every conceivable item you will need during your stay, even yoga mats.
We had the most wonderful chef come to the retreat and cook fresh crayfish, oysters and King Island beef. We felt incredibly spoilt and the fact you don't have to drive is just wonderful. Worth the money.
Magnificent golf courses, Wickham has stunning views on every hole, with challenging approaches. You might need a lot of balls. The 17th hole is something to be seen and experienced. Staff were terrific and we enjoyed a lovely lunch.

What we enjoyed so much was returning home after a day golfing and enjoying drinking Tasmanian Whiskey in crystal glasses as we watched the sun set. It is so worth not staying in a hotel room and enjoying the best of King Island. It's ultimately an experience we won't forget and I have already arranged a visit to bring other friends in 6 months. Thank you for going above and beyond and providing something so special. The attention we received was discreet but attentive.

One thing to remember, don't bring fresh salmon sushi over from Melbourne, bio security will confiscate on arriving at King Island.

“Perfection in every aspect!!”

Location Location Location!
Beach on your door step, views that will take your breath away. We had 5 of the best days staying at Porkys. There is not a thing they haven't thought of. Cedar hot tub & sauna with a breath taking view. It really is the place to go chill and unwind.
We hired a car from the host to take in the island, cheese factory one day, golf course the next. Amazed at the lush green rolling fields full of King Island dairy and beef cattle. Would stay again!
Hosts fantastic!
Thank you Porkys & King Island for an unforgettable Holiday!

It was an absolute delight that the first part of your holiday was spent at Alexandra's and then you stayed at our Porky Beach Retreat. It definitely was a memorable time and something I'm sure you will all treasure for years to come. So glad you enjoyed the sauna and hot tub. It certainly offers something unique and fun for our guests. Once again, I look forward to welcoming you back when you next come to King Island.
