“Excellent stay”
Reviewed 19 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

I stayed here as part of a surprise trip from my partner (which the surprise got busted about a month before the trip). I'd never been to Kangaroo Island before and was very excited to get around and this house was the perfect introduction to what KI is all about. The directions were very well written to get to the house and finding it wasn't an issue. The location may seem far away from everything, but the nature of the road layout makes the house a quick drive to all parts of the island, but it is still remote enough to feel as if there is no one else in existence which is perfect.
On arrival we were greeted by both the owner Ben, and a beautiful cool sea breeze. The house was very clean and well equipped in the kitchen, the bed was comfy and the bathroom very clean. Each day we explored the island but I always looked forward to returning to the house and relaxing on the deck with the views. At night time is was slightly warm weather but the breeze coming through the windows and doors was welcomed and sleeping with the sound of the ocean nearby was very relaxing. It was also interesting learning about the area around the house with its brief whaling history.
The eco nature of the house very interesting. It seems as if it was built from the ground up as an eco friendly house which worked very well. To be honest I was a little sceptical about the eco nature but I soon realised that it is a great way to live (imagine living electricity bill free!).
As has been written about the road in is fine for sedans and is easily driven with care. If you follow the road past the house it takes you to shag rock. Would have been a great walk but I decided to tackle it in my car which was great fun! As written in the welcome book Telstra works well, but the 3g internet connection can be patchy. That being said this place is best enjoyed by immersing yourself in the environment and turning off all technology.
I would highly recommend this house to anyone travelling to KI.

“Pristine isolation and beauty!”
Reviewed 7 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Blue Seas for two nights and found it to be a fantastic retreat. The house is simple but wonderfully equipped with a wall of windows and deck facing the sea. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was a treat. Ben the owner was very welcoming and accommodating. Very peaceful, very quiet, just a minute walk over the dunes to the beach, which appeared to be empty the entire time we were there (we did see another set of footprints, but no people!).

A few things to note: The house is reached via unsealed roads which are basically fine- a regular car will be fine with just a bit of care. The house is located in a fairly remote area- at least 35 minutes back to Kingscote for groceries and gas. For us this was a big positive- we love being in a more remote area. While our Google Maps navigation correctly located the house, it seriously over-estimated the time required to arrive there- estimating the trip at more than twice as long as it actually was from Kingscote. Finally, the house is two bedrooms with one bathroom, and the bathroom is attached to one of the bedrooms, so the 2nd bedroom accesses the bathroom either through the first or via an outside door on the back deck. None of this detracts from how nice the house is- just good to know!

Love the sea views from the house, the peace, the birds, sandy, deserted beach, comfortable beds and stylish furnishings. This was our second visit and we will be back!

“Amazing house in an amazing location”
Reviewed 30 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed her at Blue Seas for 2 nights but I so wish that we had stayed longer. I was a bit worried about the isolation of the property and getting around the island but this was unfounded. Blue seas is absolutely gorgeous, a perfect beach getaway in a beautiful part of the world. The owner Ben greater us when we arrived and made us feel very comfortable. The house is completely eco friendly and self sufficient i.e. generates own power, rain water etc. The views are amazing- I could have spent hours just sitting on the verandah looking at the sea. I would strongly recommend anyone coming to Kangaroo island to stay at Blue Seas- you won't regret it.

“special and beautiful place”
Reviewed 29 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This was certainly one of the nicest beach houses we've ever stayed in. We have visited many spectacular places around Australia but this is a real find - a wonderful balance of peaceful isolation and total comfort and style. The design and attention to detail creates such a warm and positive atmosphere. It is secluded but not far from the main attractions. We didn't stay long enough!
