This compact, welcoming beachside settlement at Baudin Beach is a well-kept secret by the locals, with a great sense of community and co-operation evident.

It is located 10 km to Penneshaw, Sealink ferry and 50km from the main town of Kingscote.

The “Breezway” is on Leander Avenue, one back from the Esplanade, with an unimpeded view down Ash street.

On the seafront, and slightly to the east of the town, there is a “secret” beach, ideal for the youngsters. On the other side of the town, over the sandhill, is the main beach.

Since it was built in 2007, the property has been sparingly used, so is in an “as new” condition.

It has three bedrooms and a three-way wet area. The room configuration has been set up to enjoy an entertaining lifestyle, open space kitchen, living, lounge, with the island bench a feature, and on the sunnier days, the front deck is readily accessible, with the advantage of café blinds to enhance the experience.

The recently-installed Colorbond shed has power connected and accommodates two cars and/or a boat.
