About Ben Byass
I came to this area on a surfing/ camping trip and fell in love with its unique and unspoilt character. I built my own house here, raised a family and worked as a design and technology teacher in the local secondary school. I have since designed and built BlueSeas to share our piece of paradise
Why Ben Byass chose D'Estrees Bay
Centrally located. Absolute privacy. Peace , quiet. Floor to ceiling glass and large decks open the house to the totally unspoilt environment and huge ocean views. I designed and built BlueSeas to blend into the landscape, provide a strong connection to nature combined with comfort and style.
please inform me of any plans before you book
no smoking inside but allowed on the decks

Magnificent Views & Beach Access
Tranquility immersed in nature. Birds chirping and visiting and waves in the background. Isolated beach all to ourselves for exploring. Watched sunrise from the deck and beach.
Great base to explore the surrounding island. Enjoyed the self-drive d’Estrees Bay heritage tour.
Thank you for sharing your patch of paradise. We loved our stay.
Enjoy the wilderness
We had a wonderful stay at D’Estrees bay. The house is set in pristine wilderness, close to a deserted beach. The hosts were very accommodating
Great house in stunning location
We had a great time in this well equipped house with beautiful views and peaceful seclusion.
This was a true gem hidden in the coastal bush just up off the beach with views of the sea in both directions. We felt very relax and unwound by the time we left and Ben was great, making sure we were comfortable. It is very isolated but that is its' biggest asset. Not easy in this day but, we literally didn't see another sole in the time we stayed there. I will always remember that stay for this reason. You do need to have your supplies organised because it's a long way to the shops. There wasn't a microwave or a washing machine so keep that in mind when doing your list.
Kangaroo Island Getaway
We recently spent five nights staying at Blueseas and it was so comfortable and soul-nourishing. Ben is a wonderful host with great recommendations for day trips and quite frankly, is one of the nicest guys you will meet. The cottage is very clean and cozy and the setting is wonderful, overlooking the beach with the sound of the waves lulling you to sleep. It is quite remote and the roads getting there are a bit challenging, but you will be rewarded with a truly special and relaxing time.
Beautifully located property
Thank you Ben & Dave for assisting us with our stay. My 8yo son & I had a lovely time at your place. The view from the property was just stunning. We had a beautiful morning and evening strolls on the beach as well. The house was well equipped and clean.
BlueSeas is set in a very secluded and central location- ideal for visiting the islands attractions and for preparing the local delicacies. Enjoy your own private beach
