Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The property was exactly what we expected, has everything you need. Saw alot more kangaroos than I thought we'd see. Fantastic. Didn't want to leave. Small issue with a blackout and no internet to check (was worried i'd done something wrong) but was able to contact property manager who was a great help letting us know ETA / went above and beyond keeping us updated. Still had a fireplace working though.

Amazing location and a very comfortable house with everything we needed for a full week stay. Very comfortable beds with plenty of blanket and pillow options. Fully equipped kitchen with loads of crockery and utensils; I could have cooked up a storm if I wasn't too busy relaxing. The lagoon was beautiful with something going on all the time. Lots of birds, even a dolphin and the kangaroos also visit the waterside. We hope to be back one day.

We loved the secluded location and the house. The ideal place to get away and relax. Thank you!
The property was very well presented, the wood fire was ideal for our winter stay. We would highly recommend the property, it will give you a lovely taste of Kangaroo Island.

Perfect family eacape
Loved our relaxing week long stay. The house had everything we needed in a lovely quiet location. We all really enjoyed having a mob of kangaroos right outside the door and all the marine life in the lagoon.

Fabulous location with beautiful views and privacy. The kangaroos and large trees out the front made an idyllic place to rest and unwind.

Just remote enough
We loved being at Ratcliff Cottage. It was private, very comfortable and felt like a home away from home. We enjoyed our breakfasts on the terrace, observing kangaroos, pelicans, dolphins and a ray swimming right in front of us! A great base to explore KI and enjoy some quiet time.

Private and quiet with a beautiful view!
Ratcliff cottage was a wonderful home to spend a few days. We loved the front verandah where we spent most of our time watching the KI kangaroos lazing and feeding under the beautiful Moreton Bay fig trees. Such a wonderful little piece of paradise!
