Collected from the airport & arriving late in the afternoon we only had to buy a bottle of wine to accompany the cheese, biscuits, fruit & crackers awaiting, thank you Alexandra! As well, bread, butter, milk, cereal, Vegemite, coffee & other necessities were provided. Loved the personal touches with up to date magazines for all tastes, teddies for company & the friendly chooks tapping on the window. If there's a spectacular sunset, it's only a short walk to include the lighthouse & the harbour of Currie in the frame. Great spot!
From the moment we arrived Alex couldn't have been more helpful or welcoming. The apartment is luxuriously appointed, with nothing else one could wish for. We stayed with our adult daughter we all loved it. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.
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.
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!
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.
