What we love…

Turnstone Beach House was designed by renowned coastal architect and surfing filmmaker Paul Witzig. The house is a stunning design,  built to take advantage of its wonderful location and beautifully fitted and furnished.


Tell me more…

Turnstone Beach House is located on beautiful King Island with close up views of the Southern swells. The sea is on three sides and all rooms have ocean views. The house is designed to capture the sweeping views and the glory of the mesmerising Southern Ocean sunsets. The design of the house effortlessly bring the outside in, without disturbing the landscape, with island inspired woodwork in Tasmanian timbers, and glass that naturally frames the surrounding coastal landscape.

The ocean right out front is full of crayfish and abalone. Many varieties of fish are caught right off the beach in front and of course all round the Island. For bird lovers there is also an abundance of life on the beach. The house is named after the Ruddy Turnstone which can be seen seasonally on Little Porky Beach.
