Drift away to King Island, where time stands still

In early 2006, a King Island local had a vision of creating a location where people could engulf themselves in nature, adventure, wildlife; sampling the unique beauty of King Island at its very best. This dream project was the first of its kind for King Island, and Porky Beach Retreat was born.

Fast forward to 2022; and the spectacular property has been refreshed and reimagined under a new name, Shore House.

Escape to the edge of the world

Wake with the crash of the waves onto the shore; and lose yourself in the raw beauty of King Island’s pristine, untouched coastline.

Shore House will reinvigorate the senses and provide safe haven from the real world.

Shore House (formerly Porky Beach Retreat) is just 10 minutes drive from the main township of Currie. Touching down at the King Island Domestic Airport (KNS), a five minute drive will have you entering the gates of Shore House, surrounded by coastal hills, bushes and vegetation.

You’ll enter a sanctuary, with utter privacy from the real world.

This is modern coastal luxury at its best. Shore House offers up to eight guests the opportunity to relax in total privacy and share precious time with a loved ones, whilst indulging on King Island’s famous local produce and embracing the endless spectacular vistas. The four beautifully appointed bedrooms feature king beds (or eight long singles), providing versatility for groups and families.

Set amongst a stunning natural backdrop of the Great Southern Ocean, the retreat showcases this blue vista through floor-to-ceiling glass.

Unwind and immerse yourself in your beachfront environment with your private outdoor bespoke sauna, sunken timber hot tub and outdoor mosaic shower.

Indoors has been thoughtfully designed with relaxation in mind. Little details combine to create your sanctuary, with rotating fireplace, gourmet kitchen and bespoke touches that provide the highest standard of luxury accommodation on King Island.

A commitment to environmental sustainability has shaped and styled Shore House the architecture of Shore House, King. Island. The property balances exquisite luxury with environmental ethos, with the collection and conservation of rainwater, water recycling, double glazing, efficient energy with hot water, plus an ongoing regeneration program of planting native species as part of limiting the impact and to protect local flora and fauna.
