We decided to stay an extra night on the island, and luckily, Jane had a room available to fit us all.

Really warm welcome ! The room was very clean and cosy ! We felt like at her mum's place. The "egg boat" breakfast was amazing ! If you are visiting Kangaroo Island, it's definitely a place to stay. Thanks Jane for your advises and your warm welcome

As we booked the http://www.wildernesstours.com.au/kangaroo-island-nature-4wd-tours.htm, we were very disappointed by the level of the b & b we stayed in that not only did not match the level of services sold by the organizer and accordingly the price paid, but moreover was dirty and unsanitary. By the way, the breakfast was clearly below the minimum required, and did not even... More

Dear VGGZ, Thank you for your comments. I was very disappointed in your review as I have always tried to cater to all of my guests needs and offer my sincere apologies for your disappointment.
