“Amazing”
Reviewed 10 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

The location of Porky Beach House is excellent. It is so near to the airport and the main township Currie. Coming up the driveway to the house the entire ocean comes into view and the setting is just great. Upon entering the house we were simply wowed. Almost from every corner of the house the ocean is in view. The atmosphere is warm, calm and restful and everywhere clean and neat. Alexandra and Russell are excellent hosts, friendly, warm, helpful and generous. Our welcome pack was more than what we could expect from a 5-star hotel. The house is so well equipped with high quality stuff, especially the kitchen which makes cooking very convenient. Everything we needed for a comfortable stay we could find. Indeed it is a home away from home. We particularly like to sit in the lounge and dining areas to watch the beautiful sunset through the floor to ceiling glass panels, sipping wine and savouring King Island famous cheese with crackers. The house is a mere 50 or so meters from the beach and the sound of lapping waves does soothe one to sound sleep. The walking track in front of the house by the beach is such a delight to walk and it goes a long way, safe and easy. There is a spa and sauna and they are so well positioned to take in the great ocean views. This is a holiday house I would strongly recommend to any one who is looking for comfortable accommodation in King Island.

Dearest Lip and the family :)
What can I say but I do what I do, just for the pleasure and delight of meeting guests like you and Sue. Your review is humbling and it confirms that the hard work and what we strive to achieve, is recognised by our guests. I'm so glad you had the opportunity to experience the best of King Island and not to mention the crayfish and dinners you were wowed with!! It was great hearing the stories. Look forward to sharing stories with you again and lets hope we can get those kids to meet . Till next time and hope you are all well.
Warmest of regards and hugs

“The absolute best short break ever....”
Reviewed 9 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Porky Beach House .
What can I say! This is our second visit to King Islands infamous Porky Beach House and its great that Alex and Russell have added more luxuries and special amenities, making this a truly special and fully inclusive accommodation package. The spa & sauna are awesome and the views are wow! Inside, you cannot ask for more, with everything provided - and I mean everything.... We were 6 adults & 2 children - it was perfect..
Being a TravelManager, I would 100% recommend this "flop & drop" adventure to my clients & family.
Until next time Alex & Russell.

Following on from our initial stay not even 12 months ago, it was so refreshing to find even more luxuries had been installed to make Porky's the only "go to" destination.
The added opulence of the Mercedes experience in traversing the island was an added bonus. The panoramic view from the sauna is matched only by the pure craftsmanship in its detailed construction. The relaxing bubbles in the red cedar spa were complimented by the refreshing bubbles in our glasses of champagne as we absorbed the sheer beauty of the magnificent King Island sunset. The term "over and beyond" are often used, but in describing our hosts Alexandra and Russell is such an understatement. Their presentation of this wonderful holiday home is exemplary.

Greetings from Porky Beach House; King Island Escapes!

It was such a pleasure hosting you, thank you so much for taking the time to write.

I am delighted to hear that your visit with us was exemplary. Your comments about luxury are aligned very closely to our own thoughts. I aim to offer a lifelong memory with exceptional attention to detail and a genuine warmth. I am very happy that this was your experience.

To now have the latest Mercedes people mover available for use, just adds to another little touch to making a stay even more special.

Thank you also for mentioning Russell, who does much work behind the scenes, it really does mean so much to us.

Jann, I remain at your service, and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Regards
Alexandra

“Brilliant King Island Getaway”
Reviewed 20 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Porky Beach House is amazing - brilliant private location with unrivaled views and fantastic facilities. The group loved the hot tub and sauna and the recent addition of Foxtel was well received also. Would really recommend Porky Beach House for a one of a kind golf getaway or luxury family/friends getaway. Thanks Alexandra for the great weekend.

The attention to detail, best quality of everything, great views & location, soooo much space, everything there & working, kind & generous hosts wanting to spoil us & make our stay as brilliant as it could be; all made for a perfect stay. Everyone in the group enjoyed this fantastic experience, nothing short of sensational. If you go to King Island you would be nuts to stay anywhere else!!!
