The house has two outdoor entertaining areas: one facing north overlooking the ocean and one indoors which is protected from the elements and complete with large dining table, fireplace, BBQ and vegetable/herb garden (season-dependent).
The open-plan kitchen is thoughtfully equipped for entertaining and the pantry is well-stocked with essentials (cereal, spreads, pasta, sauces, oils etc). A mini-barista coffee machine, toaster, blender are available for provided for convenience. The dining table seats eight and has hosted many gatherings among friends.
At the heart of the home, you’ll find the warm and inviting living area, offering awe inspiring views of King Island’s rugged west coast and the untamed beauty of the Southern Ocean. With the waves rolling in, no day or hour is ever the same; some days it’s calm and flat like a lake and other days the roaring 40’s makes it one of the most treacherous seas on the planet. The indoor fireplace is as rustic as it gets; as the logs crackle in the evening, you’ll discover a sense of unparalleled relaxation. Cosy up in a snug blanket, with a glass of wine and a King Island dairy cheese platter, all while indulging in a movie – an experience that promises pure delight.
All three bedrooms have views of the ocean and high quality bedding is provided. The quiet office space has a futon sofa bed which can accommodate an additional guest (the sofa bed can be made up on request at no additional charge).
The gym in the garage is available for those who want to get their sweat on during their stay. There are weights, TRX, squat rack, yoga mats etc. Beach towels, fishing rods, a beach tent, surf boards are also available for our guests’ enjoyment at the beach.
Buttons by the Beach is 100% off-grid and has zero reliance on mains infrastructure. The house uses a combination of solar and wind to generate energy which is stored in batteries. The house faces north to optimise solar power generation. Water is supplied from two sources: a natural spring 500m away and a rainwater tank. Natural gas heats hot water and the oven/stove. Although off-grid, the modern comforts of living are available – reliable telstra phone reception, fast starlink internet, Apple TV, Netflix, Kayo and Binge.
This beautiful property stretches down to the water’s edge and encompasses 600m of coastline. With direct access to the beach from the property, it’s only a short walk on a designated walking track to cool-off (or brave the cold!). Buttons by the Beach has everything you need to retreat from the world, entertain with friends and relax in this special part of Australia. We look forward to welcoming you to Buttons By the Beach on the edge of the island – and the edge of the world.
