Very nice place to spend your vacation on Kangaroo Island! We were in a cottage, really nice, clean and with a beautiful view on the bay! The garden is very well cured and sometimes you can see kangaroos near your cottage. The owners are friendly and so kind! Vivamente consigliato!

Thank you SO MUCH for your kind words in your review.! We love our property and feel blessed that the kangaroos,(and koalas, echidnas and goannas) visit us now and then and give our visitors such a thrill. Our garden on 5 acres is a colourful joy at this time of the year and glad you enjoyed it. Cheers, and we... More

Our host Ann meet us with a warm smile. Our cottage Shalom was very clean and tidy. It had all of the amenities for cooking meals if needed. The toilet was separate from the bathroom which was a pleasant change. The view from the bedroom and lounge was magnificent.

Booked Jireh through KI Visitor center and loved it. Hosts Ann and Theo were excellent hosts and presented the home beautifully. Lovely location with all basics and well equipped kitchen. Very neat from inside with picturesque views of both land and sea. It was perfect for our family of 10. Would certainly recommend.

We had 3 nights here. It's a great spot, about 20 mins drive away from any amenities (at Kingscote) so it's self catering. It's an old fashioned type of cabin, comfortable, clean, quiet with good self catering facilities including BBQ. No Wi-Fi but good cell coverage. There's a superb beach 500m away. We enjoyed our Autumn stay though very quiet... More

I absolutely love staying here. This is the second time and would stay here again. It's quiet and very peaceful with a great view of the beach. Very comfortable accommodation with friendly hosts. Not far from the town of Kingscote for shopping, petrol, cafe's, a great butcher etc.
