We could not have been happier with our 2 night stay. The 2 bedroom apartment was well appointed with plenty of space and everything you'd need from an apartment. Being central to most of Kangaroo Island's tourist spots is great for short or long stays. Also being straight across the road from the local takeaway and small supermarket makes it... More

If you like glitz and glitter, a fancy lobby, and the look of a city hotel, then this is not the place for you. If however, you want a place that is safe, clean, comfortable, and feels like a well-maintained home with a good friend nearby, this is it. One would be hard-pressed to find a better proprietor than Sue.... More

We elected to stay here as we were visiting family nearby - the chalet was impeccably clean, well presented, laid out and thoughtfully equipped - we needed for nothing. Sue, the Owner Manager was most welcoming, helpful and informative. Price was fair for Australian rates. It was about 70k from Penneshaw Ferry Terminal and 60k to Kingscote but gave ease... More

Ficifolia is not for those looking for a standard "hotel" stay but more for someone looking for a small apartment with pretty much all the amenities of home for a stay. We didn't really know what to expect when booking this place. Kangeroo Island has limited accommodation and everything is spread out. We were mostly interested in day trips on... More

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...
