“Perfect Island views”
Reviewed 5 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Perfect holiday home, very well thought out with every detail considered. Location ideal as it has privacy but still close to town. Very comfortable home with picture perfect views and wallabies meandering around. Would certainly come here again. A real credit to the owners who were extremely helpful from the beginning and always readily available to communicate.

“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed 28 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The house was beautifullyappointed and the owners have gone to great lengths to provide all the comforts of home. The locals were friendly and welcoming and the scenery, especially the Dudley Penninsular, was spectacular.Make sure you visit Dudley Wines, the view from the deck is amazing. We also had great meals at the Penneshaw Hotel.

“Kangaroo Island a fabulous holiday”
Reviewed 14 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Kangaroo island was so much bigger than I expected so you need a car to explore the extensive and varied sights. Lots of wildlife and amazing scenery, great wineries on cliff tops with good food and the Westend National Park was awesome.
The house just made the whole experience even more wonderful. It's comfortable has everything you need plus many extras not normally found in a holiday rental. Plentiful towels amazing herb and spice cupboard, great bbq balcony for that end of day wine and cheese session. I like the location and the lovely views over Penneshaw.

“Thorn brand synonymous with excellence”
Reviewed 14 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

I wholeheartedly concur with all of the superlatives listed in previous reviews, which accurately reflect the high standard of this property. Owners Michael and David are KI royalty and you will be completely satisfied in your dealings with them.

The house is fully equipped and the kitchen well appointed and generously stocked with condiments etc. Beds are super comfortable, plenty of linen, towels etc. We had great weather so deck was in constant use - amazing views over Penneshaw and Frenchman's rock Beach, which is lovely for a relaxing stroll at the waters edge.

Location is super handy to the ferry but being on the eastern end of this very large island I agree with previous comments about considering exactly what you want to do on KI before choosing your accommodation. However I would not stay anywhere else after experiencing the magic of this Thorn property.

There is something quite enchanting about the KI experience and staying at this property enhances that intangible feeling of wellbeing that sitting on that deck feeding wallabies and kangaroos whilst eating a local platter and sipping on local vino brings. I will be back!

Highly recommended.

“Fantastic View”
Reviewed 4 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

This was a very comfortable house with very good facilities/appliances and in a really beautiful place. It's a steep but easy walk into Penneshaw but a really steep walk back so not suitable for all, but the facilities are so good that just staying in the house, sitting and eating on the deck, relaxing and enjoying the view makes it a perfect holiday stay. Would definitely recommend it highly.
