So much Charm in Nat's house we all loved staying here. When we arrived (from Brisbane) we walked in and Kate was stoking the fireplace, heaters were on and the electric blankets were nice and toasty. Such a warm and inviting welcome we received. We just wished we could have stayed longer as there was just so much to do.... More

Charming 1820's farm house well worth the stay to soak up the country vibes. Nothing like waking up to ocean views with sheep wandering the land outside your windows and then just a short walk to one of the nicest beaches on KI.

This trip was the third time back to this place. We have only ever had great experiences. Andy and Kate are friendly hosts and happy to assist with any questions/queries. Access to the beautiful beaches is easy or if you are a little more adventurous you can walk down the path which is steep in places. The roads out of... More

We spend 4 days enjoying farm life at Kangaroo Island. Great hosts - the most fantastic old house. A beach all to ourself. Walking in the fields and experiencing wildlife - for real!

An authentic local experience on Kangaroo Island! We stayed at the Kona, further back from the coast, but on top of the hill at Kate and Andy’s farm. For two couples, the Kona was a great size; neat, tidy and modern – especially considering it’s situated in the middle of a farm! There were two bedrooms with a King bed... More

We had a big family gathering and rented both houses at Antechamber Bay Retreats. The setting is amazing. You look out on the ocean surrounded by sheep, occasional kangaroos, and beautiful birdlife.The houses worked out perfectly for us with plenty of space for kids to play outside or walk to the beach. We could barbecue every night and sit around... More
