So glad we have found this gem and booked it right away. Perfectly located to visit the various west-end of KI, wildlife as you step out of your door, nice and cosy inside the Postman's Cottage, great for a couple, everything provided to be able to cook and enjoy dinner, a wonderful surprise when opening the outside bathroom door... a...

Fantastic location close to visitor center and right on trails. kangaroos and koala reside right in the "yard"; also saw many wallaby, cape barron... More

We booked a few nights with both Postmans Cottage and Mays Cottage - 4 adults and 2 kids. These two stone buildings are close together so it is possible for a group to share both of them while using Mays for cooking and eating. Having said that Postmans does have stand alone cooking facilities but everything is in one room.... More

Amazing to be able to sit quietly with a predinner drink and watch the Cape Barren Geese meander a few meters away, kangaroos grazing and hear the koala in the nearby tree. Meanwhile the magpie is keeping a close eye on you. There are easy walking tracks nearby with amazing interpretative signs to explain the hsitory of the place as... More

Although we were surprised the first moment when we saw it, it totally changed my mind while entering it. The room is nice and clean. Basically, it got everything!! Kitchenware, Microwave, Fridge, stove. We do not need a TV in the island as it is an escape from the city's hustle and bustle. Next time (probably next year) we will... More

We stayed for one night in Postman's cottage which is located in the middle of Flinders Chase National Park. Bathroom was really clean and brand new but the mirror is a little bit too high. It was well equipped (fridge, microwave...) which is useful because there is nothing around to eat and the visitor center closes at 5PM. Socket should... More

When you are looking for a real great place to spend some time on KI, May's Homestead certainly is top of the list. It's old and rustic but very charming from outside and gives you a real good idea how live was in times long gone. Stepping inside adds more to this feeling, but everything you need is provided. Hot... More

Have just returned from 5 night's at Flinders Chase National Park. Firstly, we stayed at Postman's Cottage. A hot shower and toilet was a bonus. The room was small, but all facilities (stove, microwave, fridge and ) were on hand. Comfortable beds, and enough tables and chairs. Evenings were spent outside reading, enjoying the company of Roos, wallabies, and Cape... More

Just loved it! How couldnt you. It is tiny and i agree with a previous reviewer that a couch in lieu of one of the beds would be great. The stove kept the room warm. Ioriginally booked for two nights...was able to extend to three...i did contemplate staying for 5 but someone else had already booked it out. The staff... More
