Clearwater Haven - secluded beach, native bush

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Get away from it all without being too far from the essentials! Overlooking the clear waters of Nepean Bay, this attractive, fully self-contained holiday house has a secluded, 7km long sandy beach. Clearwater Haven is surrounded by 107 acres of gorgeous countryside, including more than 30 acres of natural bushland with large gum trees and abundant native wildlife. Imagine gazing into the sunset from the front deck while kangaroos and wallabies graze and the occasional echidna strolls by.

Built in 2011, Clearwater Haven has modern, open plan living and plenty of room for three sets of friends, two small families or a large family. With three bedrooms, Clearwater Haven comfortably sleeps up to 6 adults and two infants in 2 queens, 2 singles and two cots.

No need to pack the kitchen sink--the kitchen has all the essentials, including welcome coffee, tea and milk, and all the crockery you need to cook up a storm. Luxury Sheridan linen, bath towels and beach towels are included. All bedrooms have block-out blinds and curtains to ensure a peaceful country sleep.

The house is a short 200 meter walk through native vegetation to the beautiful sandy beach and calm waters of Nepean Bay, perfect for boating, fishing, swimming, kayaking or just strolling along the sands.

At Clearwater Haven, you can bushwalk to your heart's content through native grass trees and mature gums. Or maybe after adventuring to Kangaroo Island's famous sites, you'd like a quiet day in, spending some time with the family over board games or just reading. If you like to fish, you can try your luck with a fishing rod from the beach or launch a small boat.

In the evenings, enjoy a glass from one of Kangaroo Island's famous wineries on our large entertainment deck while cooking up the day's catch on our barbeque.

This eco-friendly home has ample solar power and rainwater. Guests have complete privacy and run of the house, access to the full 107 acres of the property and easy access to a beautiful beach safe for swimming all year. A property manager is on call and close by if needed.

This beautiful property is centrally located only 40kms to the ferry terminal and 25km to Kingscote. There is also excellent mobile network coverage.

The property is child friendly and has a high chair and two cots. Please let us know if you require cot linen.

We keep our calendar up to date, so if dates are available on our calendar, feel confident in making a booking request.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is in the perfect setting with the beach so close and a wonderful deck to sit outside with a glass of wine and watch the stars! We had the pleasure of witnessing wallabies wandering past at dusk. The house had all the amenities for cooking and enjoying dinner outside. The house is a little far from shops (about a 20-25 min drive to Kingscote) so make sure you are well prepared with all the food and drink you need!

Ori was very attentive at replying to emails and making sure we had an enjoyable stay. Would definitely consider staying again in the future.

Many thanks.

Fabulous !

  • 5 of 5

We had a great few days at Clearwater Haven. It is a well equipped house situated very close to a secluded, safe and pretty beach. We saw lots of wildlife around the house and it was a lovely place to relax and unwind.

The house had everything we needed and more! I would love to return.

(We stayed in January 2018)

Great setting

  • 5 of 5

Clearwater Haven offers a private and serene bush setting with amazingly close beach access. Loved the visiting echidnas and birds. House has everything you need except for fans. Last day of our stay was getting warm and the sea breezes weren't enough to cool things down comfortably. Off the grid power meant no toaster and all gas cooking/heating but this was no problem at all.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear you enjoyed the privacy, beach and wildlife, Bid! I wish we'd known you were warm the last day--we have fans which we bring out for the few days of the year that the sea breezes and cooler summers on the Island aren't enough. Hope you enjoy your memories of Kangaroo Island and we'd be delighted to have you again if you return.

Excellent - Everything as described and more

  • 5 of 5

Clear water was a fantastic property - and we did not want for anything. We had a great time. Wonderful location, great facilities in a natural setting, saw heaps of wildlife including stingrays, crabs, wallabies, kangaroos, echindnas..the list goes on. highly recommend!!! and the owners were super helpful in response to our forgetfulness. Thanks so much PS I especially loved the colour coded book case - it is exactly how I would have done it!!

Get away from it all ? This is the place !

We've been to Kangaroo Island before; that was before we had two children. It's not a locality full of funfairs and glitzy entertainment,so we weren't quite sure what the junior family reaction would be. Clearwater Haven is a modern and comfortable house with three bedrooms, modern appliances, TV and furnishings all powered with solar off the gris power, tank water, backed up by bottled gas. set in an environment where you'll maybe hear 2 or 3 cars go by a day. What you will hear is wind in the trees, and a distant sound of waves on the beach. Our kids spent time on the beach, roamed some of the nearly 100 treed acres of bushland, or toured the island with us seeing the broad variety of aussie wildlife, and small towns and what they hold. You are only about 20 minutes from Kingscote and a well stocked supermarket, hotels, coffee shops etc. We had a week there and came away well relaxed. The only thing to be aware of is the island, which is over 100 kilometres long is served by well maintained highways, but many locations (including Clearwater Haven) are accessed by unmade roads. For us, after a day or so, it was just part of the holiday. A hassle free time to unwind even with a 9 and 12 yearold in tow. If isolating yourself from the grind is what you want; go, enjoy. Oh yes; and if you still HAVE to stay in contact with the clatter and bang of the mainland, mobile service at Cearwater Haven is good.
