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

Great location to see the West side of the Island, Spent cosy nights cooking on the wood burning stove (NB normal cooking facilities are provided as well). Breakfast and lunches are... 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

Firstly, can I point out that this place is located on Kangaroo Island in the Flinders CHASE National Park, (not in the Flinders Ranges National Park). We stayed in May's Homestead 2 nights. Pretty much everything you need is provided for a self-contained stay, and kept in good condition. Warmth is provided by the slow-combustion wood heater in the lounge,... More

Beautiful location with cape barren geese, wallabies, kangaroos and a koala all within 2 minutes walk of the homestead. The wood stove was a joy to use, as was the wood fired heater. The homestead has a very interesting history and the kids were fascinated on how they lived 100 years ago. The house was spotlessly clean with fantastic views.... More

Well appointed, ideally located for this end of Kangaroo Island. Clean and well presented. Don't be put off by the outside lavatory and shower - it is only half a metre outside. Large and well equipped kitchen. No shops though - you must bring all your own food.

Staying within Flinder's Chase National Park is a must when visiting Kangaroo Island. I stayed in the Postman's Cottage with my family of four. It is a small space and basic, but clean, comfortable and equipped with everything you need, including a modern bathroom. We had cold nights, but were very cosy in the Cottage. Kangaroos and wallabies grazed just... More
