Flinders Island Accommodation

Remote self contained accommodation with an elegant coastal ambience, absolute waterfront and breathtaking views

The view from the main deck of Nautilus 2.

There are two accommodation options on our property which has absolute water frontage to Killiecrankie Bay.

Nautilus 1 is chic with a queen sized bedroom, separate bathroom and spacious open plan kitchen, dining, living area and deck. 

Nautilus 2 is an  architect designed beach house with two queen sized bedrooms both with ensuites with the one for the main bedroom having a luxurious bath with a fold back window overlooking the ocean. There is a spacious open plan kitchen, dining and living area connected to a large deck and there are balconies off both bedrooms. 

Both are fully self contained, comfortably furnished and with interiors that present an elegant coastal ambience ... and both have sweeping views across a breathtaking bay to Mt Killiecrankie with the beach and foreshore just a stones throw away.

When you are here:

  • Enjoy the breathtaking  views from the decks ... Craggy Island floating on the distant horizon ... the late afternoon light on the Mt Killiecrankie ... spectacular sunsets ... and if you are fortunate enough to be here at the time, full moon rise … or watch from inside when the weather is wild and stormy.

  • Watch the wallabies when they come to feed and keep and eye out for the more elusive wombats … plenty of droppings and scratchings but few sightings yet on the property ... and there is a rich variety of birdlife you can see and hear at Nautilus ... rosellas, wrens, honeyeaters, sea eagles circling over the bay, wedge tail eagles soaring over Killiecrankie Bluff, Cape Barren geese, firetail finches, currawongs ...

  • Have a bbq on the deck or pack the picnic basket and esky and head off to explore. Either way ... enjoy!

  • In late August and September the garden has a lovely developing display of daffodils and jonquils ... in October the natives are  flowering especially the richly honey sweet smelling kunzea and the tea tree adorned in a white cloud of flowers ... in Autumn the sheaoaks take on a burnished colour.

  • Hear the ever present sound of the ocean ... a wonderful bonus.

  • There are beach, coastal and bushwalks starting when you walk out the door of Nautilus  ... or you can fossick for Killiecrankie diamonds … swim or snorkel in the bay.

Nautilus is not just a place to stay while you explore Flinders Island. Nautilus, because of its location, its facilities and its ambience, is a delightful place to be.

We both feel recharged and ready for home again. We will definitely be back again.'

Nautilus 1 is beautifully appointed, clean, comfortable with amazing views over Killiecrankie Bay and mountain.

Talk about a room with a view!! Lovely house in an amazing spot. Very special.

We loved our week at Nautilus, the views are fabulous, access to the bay is great and the coffee machine was an absolute winner. Ian’s walking notes are very comprehensive which is great for planning your exploration of the area. 
-
Nautilus 1 is simply beautiful and comfortable with a lovely beach chic vibe. The view of Killiecrankie Bay & Mt Killiecrankie is incredible, and it was divine to sit in the lounge or in bed & feel completely relaxed. As amazing as Flinders is, I was very tempted to stay & absorb the peace of Killiecrankie & Nautilus instead of venturing out!
-
Nautilus 1 is everything you’d hope for in a holiday. Waking up to breathtaking views with all the comforts of home in a stunning location. I will miss my morning hop skip and jump down to the gorgeous bay for a morning swim followed by breakfast on the deck. We can’t wait to book our next trip!
-
The place is just amazing with beautiful views and a great location to use as a base to explore the island. It is a stone's throw away from some great walks and snorkelling around Killiecrankie beach. Ian was extremely generous and helpful throughout our stay. We got married at Nautilus 2 and it is now a very special place for us.
-
We loved our time at Nautilus. It had everything we needed and more, and the view is to die for. It was very easy for us to relax from the beginning . Ian made sure we were settled in comfortably, touching base periodically. We are happy to recommend this place.
-
Amazing location, home, amenities, communication & information. Would absolutely recommend and we hope to be back again in future!
