We spent four nights here with three days -- not enough -- to explore KI. The cabin was huge for two, with a terrific kitchen, which we needed since Budget wouldn't let us drive their car after dark on KI. Each morning, we woke to kangaroos feeding in the field of grass-trees and in the evenings, we could stroll down... More

We loved our stay at Eleanor River Homestead. We stayed for 2 nights but wished we had a little longer to rest and relax and enjoy KI. The cabin is well appointed with a great kitchen and living space in a cottage that sits in the middle of a farm. Local kangaroos graze on the driveway and front lawn of... More

We spent three nights at the Eleanor River Homestead in January and absolutely loved it. We enjoyed the nightly visits from the kangaroos, and Genie the resident kestrel. And the night sky - holy moly - simply breathtaking. If you are coming from the ferry, stop in Kingscote to stock up at Foodland. The nearest store to the cabin is... More

This was one of our favorite places during our trip to Australia. It's a beautiful self contained cabin that has 2 bedrooms, a beautiful bathroom with a modern kitchen and comfy living room. The grounds are so beautiful and peaceful. The place is surrounded by friendly and curious kangaroos that come up to you so you can pet and feed... More

The cabin is great: beautiful location, well equiped, quiet, lovely. The marron experience superb and fun to do, the marron was much more tasty than the lobster I ate a week later. We were looked after very well, and if it was not on the other side of the planet I would probably go there every year.

Our experience matched the rave reviews we read here on Tripadvisor. The cabin was elegant, clean and comfortable, and Graeme was a wonderful host (Kathy was on the mainland during our stay.) Meeting and hand-feeding the group of kangaroos that call the grounds home (and Genie the kestrel), was a fun and memorable experience, and the location was ideal for... More

A unique experience, perhaps the most pleasurable B&B we have visited. Early morning there is wildlife all around the cabin. After breakfast, a nice hike with the local kangaroos, including Hannah who lives near the main house. Perfect location for exploring all of Kangaroo Island by day. In the evening, it's time to get the wood fire going and prepare... More

We wanted a week away with the children at a peaceful cottage with a wood fire. Well...we found it! Was very well positioned for daily activities such as seal bay and the snake and bird show. The children loved the cottage and every night kangaroos and possums were everywhere. A big thanks to Graeme and Kathy for inviting us to... More

The homestead was welcoming, as were the owners who simply couldnt do enough for you. We were welcomed by the local wildlife and enjoyed the company of possums and wallabies all through the night. We are already working on our next visit.

We stayed here based on it's location and the Tripadvisor reviews. We loved it! The location is so serene and kangaroos are abundant in the evenings. We fed some of the wild Roos with Graeme and Kathy at the Homestead and some were semi-tamed. Genie the Kestrel was awesome to watch getting food from Graeme's fingers. The cabin was well... More
