My husband and I spent 11 nights at the cottage and loved every minute of it. Although small it was clean and had everything we needed. The bathroom was outside but modern and very nicely done. Our linen and towels were changed halfway through our stay and the staff at the visitor centre were friendly and very helpful.The location was... More

My husband and I spent a night in the Postman's Cottage and fell in love. This is the most beautiful little place we have ever stayed at. Totally self contained, spotlessly clean, couldn't want for more. Gives an indication of how they lived in days of old, right down to the wooden drain board on the sink. Highly recommend this...

We stayed in both the postman's cottage and May's Homestead, what a great time. Small does not cover it lol, it was tiny but such fun. The area was amazing, and the locals......well lets say between the grunting geese outside the door, and two workmen in the adjoining cottage who had finished working on the island lighthouse and entertained us...

What a great experience. We sat outside at dusk and watched the wildlife surround us. The cottage is small, bathroom is outside but updated and comfortable. Linens, towels and everything about it was clean. It is a step up from camping so if that's not your thing don't stay here, but if you want to get next to nature and... More

Such a fabulous way to stay in the National Park. I felt like I was part of the history of the island, and I loved the cottage and the Cape Barren geese that patrolled the fields. Would love to come back to KI and would definitely stay in the heritage accommodation again; it's a perfect alternative to camping. Thanks Flinders... More

First time stayed in wild bush area cottage house, what a wonderful experience. Nice facilities, very comfortable beds and yet so close to nature and kangaroos. It is in very good location, not far from Remarkable Rocks and other attractions in Flinders Chase. Sadly only one night. Highly recommend.

Stayed two nights at May's Homestead. The place looks primitive on the outside, but was really cosy and spacious inside. The main bedroom was very comfortable and the bathroom/toilet was clean and modern. We liked the kitchen with the large table. It was fantastic to be in such a remote place and as Postman's cottage was not occupied it felt... More

What a great place. We only stayed two nights, but would have loved to stay longer. We knew it was a small single room with an outside toilet, but we weren't expecting the five star modern loo and shower block, only five paces from the accommodation. All the benefits of a remote wilderness hut, without the disadvantages! Kangaroo Island is... More

we stayed in the postman's hut and would both/each stay there again. we found everything we needed, we were very comfortable, we were left alone, and most importantly we were totally delighted with the immediate environment (dusk/nocturnal walk) and the many nearby attractions (admiral's arch, remarkable rocks, seal bay, etc). "lots of animals" they told us at the visitor centre... More

We stayed at Mays Cottage for 3 nights and loved the combination of convenience and isolation. We were well placed for exploring the Flinders Chase National Park and close to the visitor information centre, yet had the kangaroos, birds and koalas to ourselves at our cottage. The heritage cottage had a well set up kitchen and comfortable bathroom, while maintaining... More
