I recently travelled to KI with a friend and we found Waves and Wildlife cottage to be the perfect place for our 4 night stay. Really enjoyed being able to come back to the cottage in the afternoon and sit out on the balcony with a beautiful and unique view of the ocean and kangaroos grazing right at our door... More

Stayed in Cottage 1 with a friend for four nights - fully self contained, clean and comfortable, fabulous view, beautiful location and very reasonably priced. Paul and Katya made everything so easy - all in all would recommend to anyone! Stokes Bay is a beautiful part of the island - there is a cafe during the day and not much... More

My family loved Waves and Wildlife four years ago so much that we had to return to this magical spot again. I am longing to return even now. The cottages are fairly basic but are clean, bright and well equipped with everything you need. The real magic is all in the fields surrounding each cottage. On the large deck you... More

As soon as I got inside this place I just have a big sigh, heaven! The chalet is very clean, extremely well equipped, very comfortable indeed. My only gripe was the very uncomfortable and creaky bed. The location, views and general wow factor are second to none. Do yourself a favour, stock up on treats and a few bottles of... More

I enjoyed this accommodation very much. They have an amazing view over Stokes bay, which I personally found one of the best places in Kangaroo island. The cottage was cozy and clean. I really liked the peaceful atmosphere, having dinner or breakfast with kangaroos in the garden and in front of an amazing view of the ocean. Whenever I go... More

We arrived to the cottage just on sunset and what an amazing coastal view of Stokes Bay we had on our arrival. It was absolutely stunning. The next thing we noticed were kangaroos near our cottage, hopping around and enjoying the amazing view as us. As Swedes, seeing this amazing view with lots of kangaroos hoping around ticked all of... More

I knew this place from a picture advertising "visit australia" on my homecountry's newspaper. The picture was so beautiful that I fell in love and made up my mind to visit the place someday. After searching for the exact place (there was no clue of the name of the place in the picture), i travelled there alone and stayed for... More

We stayed for 3 nights at Waves and Wildlife. We were in a 3 bedroom cottage and had plenty of room for 6 people. The cottage is modern and clean. Katja and Paul are very relaxed and easy going. The views right outside the cottage were phenomenal. Wildlife was abundant. Stokes bay is a beautiful beach. It was our favorite... More
