One Kangaroo Island is a large, contemporary private home atop a dune nestled between the bush and a secluded north-facing beach. Located about 20 minutes drive from Kingscote Airport and 10 minutes from Penneshaw, its easy access contrasts with an immediate sense of privacy, isolation and seclusion.
Envisioned and designed as a luxurious private retreat, the house can accommodate up to ten guests, depending on the required room configuration. Of the five King bedrooms, three convert to King singles, making it very flexible and perfect for multi-generational family vacations or holidays. There are four en-suite bathrooms and two sitting areas.
Overall the layout is open and spacious and designed to take in the panoramic bush and ocean views. Architecture which is simple yet elegant – using glass, timber and subtle finishes, maintains a focus on the surrounding native bush and the serene bay only metres away . Extensive decks complete with an external bath ensure you make full use of the solitude and nature contact.
Immediately in front of the white sand beach is a vibrant reef which is frequented by dolphins and offers excellent snorkelling for those wanting to immerse themselves and explore the unspoilt marine environment.
One Kangaroo Island is privately owned and hosted by locals Hugh and Coreena Rischbieth. They have carefully selected a range of designer furniture, furnishings and appliances to ensure a luxurious and comfortable stay. The house is fully catered by experienced Chefs with a strong focus on artisan Kangaroo Island produce and includes a private bar and wine selection.
The Exceptional Kangaroo Island team can craft a tailor-made stay including arrival and departure transfers; menu design; private wildlife, landscape and cultural inclusions.
