Lovely place to visit on the off season. THERE IS NO AIR CON! So you will be very very hot and uncomfortable, WITH FLYS! In the summer. THERE IS NO WAY TO COOL DOWN! And it's REALLY REALLY HORRIBLE! Otherwise this is a beautiful place, but ruined by the lack of air con! You've been warned!

This house has it all - amazing views, kangaroos and a possum in the garden with long tailed eagles flying overhead. The house is lovely and so well equipped there is nothing you could possibly need. It sits on a hill overlooking Snellings beach which is stunning. The furniture and fittings are stylish which all go to make this a... More

The most spectacular scenery and wildlife as well as a superb beach for both swimming and fishing. The accommodation has 2 wings with a communal area in between as well as large decks outside each wing to take full advantage of the superb views. Both wings are luxuriously appointed and once there you won't want to move. Early morning &... More

Why stay at Southern Ocean Lodge when you could stay at Snellings View? We had the most wonderful four night stay in this beautifully appointed home and reading the superlative comments in the visitors book for the past six years, all those who have stayed here agree. We cooked up a storm in the amazing kitchen, loving the Miele oven,... More

I won't say much about this place except that I agree with all of the other reviewers. This rental property is excellent in every way and it would be hard to see how anyone could find fault with it. I would suggest self catering as the nearest restaurant is over an hours drive away. The oven and dishwasher will need... More

A very stylish and comfortable retreat perched high above Snellings beach, with expansive views of the ocean and hills. Very well designed with luxury finishes and thoughtfully every household item you might ever need. Exceptionally clean and well maintained . The magnificent view can be enjoyed equally from each of the bedrooms and the drive to the beach takes about... More

Stayed for a week in this lovely property. Very thoughtfully and comfortably furnished. Everything you need to self cater, with well equipped kitchen that makes cooking a breeze in this stunning location. We flew into Kingscote, hired a car, bought all our supplies at the local supermarket, picked up fantastic fresh seafood at Kingscote Seafood and drove out to the... More

This was our second stay in this amazing home. The weather wasnt as kind but that didnt stop us from discovering parts of the island we hadnt been to in our previous visit. It is an absolute must to go to The Remarkables and Admirals Arch in the Flinders National Park. Fergusons supply great lobsters and oysters and the KI... More

Snellings View combines a beautiful modern house, furnishings in great taste, thoughtful comfort and a stunning view over a green valley to the sea. We stayed as four couples in the whole house and used only one of the wings for dining and relaxing so we could all be together - it was plenty big enough and also warm enough... More

We spent five nights at Snellings View. What a magnificent place. On our first evening we sat on the gorgeous 'infinity' deck drinking in the magnificent views as the sun set and watching eagles soaring overhead. We were always off early in the morning to explore all the wonders of Kangaroo Island and back home (it really felt like home)... More
