We stayed at Ficofolia Lodge in Parndana for our entire visit to Kangaroo Island. The unit was so well set out that we were comfortable as soon as we walked in.It's very clean and having a full size fridge that didn't make noises at night was great. We had a lovely breakfast basket which lasted for days and cooked our... More

Ficifolia Lodge is located in Parndana, which is in turn centrally located in the heart of Kangaroo Island, making it a great and convenient place to base yourself when making trips to various parts of the island. We got the accommodation as a package along with the ferry tickets, so the rates were cheaper, and there was the added benefit... More

We stayed here in July for 3 nights at the deluxe one-bedroom apartment. The unit is clean, spacious and well-equipped. Every night we cooked our big dinner. Free wifi is available which is good. The host is very friendly and gave us good suggestions on driving routes. We drove on the unsealed roads to the south coast with our conventional... More

We stayed here in June based on the comments on TA and in particular the location and level of comfort. I spent a lot of time researching and reading traveller comments before I booked our accommodation. Don't be fooled by previous comments, these are fibreboard units heated/cooled by reverse cycle units that are extremely noisy (TV had to be turned... More

Sounds like you did not enjoy your holiday to Kangaroo Island at all. However, based on our Trip Advisor ratings of 9 out of 10 I think we must be doing something right. More

We spent only one night here in the Ficifolia Lodge, and we wished we'd booked all three nights to stay here. This was the best accommodation we stayed in on Kangaroo Island and can't recommend it highly enough. Base yourself here for the duration of your stay - it is central enough that you can travel to any part of... More

Our four nights here were the highlight of three weeks in Australia, and Sue's welcome and advice could not be bettered - an example to all in her business. This fantastic island is what we visualised Australia to be - fabulous wildlife, many red dirt roads (with hardly any traffic!) and wonderful, varied scenery and beaches. It's also larger than...

This place is great! Very friendly staff, nice rooms, clean, good service. Sue took a lot of time giving us advice on what to do in the area - very friendly!! Good WiFi. Supermarket next door. Very central - you can do all the trips on Kangaroo Island from there.

We have just returned from a great trip to Australia. One of our highlights was Kangaroo Island, where we spent a couple of days to get the special feel of this lovely island and hopefully see lots of animals. We decided to book Ficifolia Lodge in Parndana, which lies more or less in the middle of K.I. Ficifolia is a... More

Everything seemed to have been recently updated. The large bathroom was modern and had up to date fixtures. The kitchen was well equipped and the table seated 6, ideal for a family. With only 2 of us, we only used the bedroom with the king sized bed but the other bedroom had 3 single beds, one bunk and one single.... More
