Returned to KI with my son who’d fought with the CFS to fight the fires here. We stayed at Headland House. The road in isn’t well explained by the host nor the newish caretakers. At the end of the Playford Highway, you hit a long dirt track. Be careful and slow down as it’s very slippery in parts especially once inside the property and when it’s been raining. If you can get a 4WD, do so. The views are amazing! But, the house gets very hot on a warm day and freezing cold on a wet day. The place looks unfinished and there’s poor insulation. There’s also no curtains on the windows just awnings so the sunlight blasts you early in the morning. Our place had lots of blow flies which wasn’t a great start. There’s also minimal food provisions and not even a welcoming bottle of wine or fruit which seemed pretty stingy, no local produce. The kitchen is well equipped but the bbq was filthy so we decided not to use it. I can see in previous posts that food catering was supplied and I wish this had continued. Not sure why it stopped? Would have been handy. First aid kit needs updating especially with compression bandages. The rainwater is lovely. The combustion heater is welcoming but doesn’t work well to warm the lodge especially the bedrooms and bathrooms. Could do with more than x1 towel per guest. Didn’t dry out very well. Also one of the toilets leaks and all bathrooms smell of sewerage but if you open the sliding doors the smell clears and the views are great. Underfloor heating would have been useful. Appreciated the Netflix. Useful on a very wet Sunday. Beach is lovely but a clear path for guests needs to be cleared and guests warned about tiger snakes especially international guests. Fencing at far north west tip up from the house needs to be repaired and perhaps a sign to ask guests to stand back from edge especially when windy. All in all a nice experience but we were ready to leave after the 3rd day. Big temperature issues in the lodge, loo issue and it really needs some time and money and a bit of TLC re-invested back in to it to bring back what reviews suggest like it was back 4 years ago perhaps. Incredible views but left slightly disappointed with the lodge and lack of service given its remoteness and price.

A trip to Kangaroo Island requires some planning. The attractions are mainly to the west and south of the island. Staying in Kingscote on the north east means a lot of driving. Only the main roads are sealed and some of the dirt roads are heavily corrugated so staying on the western end of the island is an advantage. Kangaroo Beach Lodge is at the end of a 25 minute dirt road on the north coast, towards the western end, but it is worth the effort. 50 minutes to the main Flinders Chase Visitors Centre in the south west. It sleeps eight and is self catering so you have to bring all your own food, but linen, kitchen and toilet stuff are all supplied. The lodge is fantastic. A really great simple design, but the most stunning thing is the view, absolutely fantastic. You are surrounded by wildlife and look over your own Snug Cove. After a day of walking you can come back to the lodge grab your towel and go for a swim at your own beach. Stayed for 5 nights and loved every one. You will love it. One tip, be nice to the property manager.

Beautiful setting, but the houses don't seem to be maintained as they should be. When we arrived, there were dead insects on the kitchen floor, urine drips on the toilet seat in one of the bathrooms, and many of the dishes had not been washed very well. I rewashed every dish, pan and utensils in the kitchen before using them. A a sliding door came off its track, nearly crashing to the ground. The "road" to the private beach is treacherous, even for a 4WD SUV. There's no air conditioning, and not many screens, so 2 of our 4 nights there were too hot for comfortable sleeping. The caretakers were initially friendly, but when I had a question, the man became surly.

This is the second time that we rented the Lodge. We loved it so much the first time that we returned exactly two years later. This time we rented both the Fides and Headland for a week. The care takers two years ago was a young couple and she was a excellent cook who provided us with prepared meals. This had to be prearranged of course. The caretaker now was older and the property was not maintained to the same high standards. Despite this the facilities were excellent and the views stunning. These lodges are usually rented by families and they did provide a high chair and a portacot for our one year old. However with an open fire in the living area they should provide a fire guard. The bedroom are quite cold at night and provision of electric blankets would have helped greatly

We spend 3 days in Paradise at Fides. Although the pictures are fantastic, they still do not do the place justice. It was beyond anything we expected from beginning to end. Everything was easy -- from booking, to arriving and even leaving. The place itself is gorgeous -- very comfortable, plenty of room and all the amenities you could want. The wallabies and kangaroos roaming the grounds are not to be believed, the beach is amazing. We would go back in a heartbeat and recommend it to anyone!!
