Staying at the Klein Pod enables the rhythm of the tides to soothe the soul and allows us to draw in the simple beauty of our surroundings
The sea view and the ever-changing patterns in the sand will keep you still and entranced as you seek to relax and watch nature reveal itself.
The Klein Pod is a neat little haven about 2 km south of Stansbury (approx. 21/4 hours from Adelaide) with lovely views through Pitts Cutting to the spit. At low tide you can see the oyster beds in the distance, and the local oyster farmers growing this great resource.
The block of land that the Pod is situated on was in the recent past cleared for cropping or grazing but over the last decades through planting and self-seeding, there are now some nice mallee gums that provide a haven for the birds. For this we must be thankful to Barry, the previous land owner, who had the foresight to undertake the planting.
The pod itself was designed by Troppo Architects and built by Oscar Builders as part of their Trop–Pod venture. In recognition of the thought, design approach and build quality,The Klein Pod has been furnished sparsely but with quality and purposeful use in mind.
The single unit has a small kitchenette, lounge area, queen bed, combustion heater and air conditioner. Out on the deck, you can relax on the daybed or enjoy a BBQ. The shower is outside behind a rustic privacy screen.

Heating and Cooling
The Pod includes a small slow combustion fire, we provide wood between April and September. There is also a small split system. Over a number of years of spending summers in Stansbury we have rarely used the air conditioner for cooling but it’s there if the hot northerly’s pop up.
A neat feature of the Pod is the bespoke side vent. This vent can be opened by using the rope and wooden blocks that fit into the dowels. Opening up the louvres and this vent provides great airflow through the pod when there is a sea breeze.
