“Sheer luxury for tired golfers”
Reviewed 11 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

If you are intending to travel to King Island to play golf, then this is the accommodation to book. Alexandra is the most wonderful caring host and she could not do enough to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The Beach House is extremely well appointed, with an excellent kitchen, comfortable beds and a cosy lounge area with log fire.

Located in one of the island's most scenic little bays, surrounded by dramatic colourful heath land and brimming with wildlife, what more could you ask. Well for starters, ask Alexandra to supply some of those big oysters and juicy King Island steaks she laid on at our request - what a feast.

The wind was blowing hard out on the course during our stay making for difficult and tiring golf, so it was a real treat to come back to the hot tub out on the deck and soak tired limbs. Then jump into the sauna and then back into the tub etc., what a treat.

Thanks Alexandra again, and we cant recommend your establishment high enough.

“Five Star facility with Six Star Service. Amazing!”
Reviewed 5 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Porky Beach House, King Island, Tasmania.
Magnificent four bedroom beach house overlooking a private beach in an idyllic, world-class setting. Everything has been thought of - outstanding facilities and features, including a barrel sauna with a glass window to the world over the ocean, a hot spa for after a swim or golf, every possible inclusion and feature in the house and the service from booking arrangements, to the initial welcome for our group of four golfers by our legendary host, Alex, with croissants, coffee and King Island cheeses and through to our departure, was something to behold. It got better! The setup and provisioning for our special dinner was fabulous - as good as any top restaurant and the crays provided by Russell were the best ever.
An amazing life experience. Warm thanks to Alex and Russell.
Rob, Carl, Stephen and Julian :-)

“This house is possibly the best accommodation I have ever been in.”
Reviewed 29 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

This truly is a stunning place. But its probably the hospitality of the owners Alex and Russell stands out. They have thought of everything - and everything is provided - including the kangaroos which come to feed on the lawn at dusk. The facilities are 5 star - the hot tub to soak the tired legs after a day on the golf course was such a benefit. And the bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in. We were a golfing group of 4 mates and we had the most wonderful time - Ocean Dunes and Cape Wickham courses are world class. Alex catered for our meal one night - the King Island beef and rock lobsters were outstanding. Ok there was one thing wrong - we only stayed for 2 nights.... I have spread the word to my other golf mates and we will be back soon.

Dear 580Stephen,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a glowing review. We are absolutely humbled and appreciative of your feedback & it reinforces what we love to do.

You did mention to me that you thought the beds and the hot tub were an absolute treat and the best treat for after golf, well you all did play hard!!

Seriously glad you had fabulous weather to enjoy your love of golf with your group. Pleasure was mine in providing a special dinner for the group, with all King Island's amazing produce and thank you again for such positive feedback.

It was a pleasure getting to know you and so glad you have already made contact about your next possible visit. See you soon :)

Kind regards

“World class beach house with a personal touch”
Reviewed 23 October 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!!
