We stayed 4 nites in the garden villa in December and it truly was a home away from home. Frank, the friendly owner was an absolute pleasure to deal with. He was there to welcome us and he had very kindly put a Christmas tree in the villa to give it a festive and homely feel. He also led us... More

We had a wonderfull stay in the garden villa. The villa is huge (we stayed 5 nights with our 2 children and only used the ground floor !), with a really great living area with large sofas and big table where you can enjoy dinner with family and friends. The bedrooms are spacious and beautiful with excellent bedding. All the... More

Frank and Kathy have thought of everything. The cottage itself was massive- could easy sleep 9 or more. Very well fitted out. Kitchen garden out the back and lovely sunny deck out the front. Position in Brownlow is a short drive from Kingscote shops and just over an hour from flinders chase national park. The cottage is just like a... More

We stayed at the Island Chalet cottage for three nights. We felt the location (Kingscote area) and the cottage were a perfect base for exploring the island which is easy to get around, but bigger than we expected. We met Frank and his wife who are super nice. Our cottage was perfectly appointed with every amenity. We had only two... More

Well it was a pleasure to meet you both and thank you so much for choosing our Island Chalet. Normally we would be at the cottage to greet you, but on this occasion, with the late ferry and the delay caused by the bushfire, it must have been close to midnight when you arrived. We were tucked up in bed... More

We actively researched where to stay on KI and after glowing reviews on Trip Advisor and a few other locations we booked at Kangaroo Island Garden Cottages. Officially this is in Brownlow... literally just a two minute drive to Kingscote with its supermarket, shops and restaurants. Great launching point to visit other parts of the island. We stayed in a... More

We spent 3 nights here late December 2012. This was a combined family trip (7 persons) including a 13 month old baby and 2 sets of grandparents. The house was crisp and clean, the rooms and beds very comfortable. Cathy's paintings add to the relaxed seaside feel of this well appointed house. Everything we needed was at hand and there... More

We stayed here with two families (5 small children) and found the cottages extremely comfortable and convenient. The beds were really comfortable with crisp, fresh linen. They were spacious, clean, well air conditioned and every convenience is available right down to glad wrap and insect spray. Books, movies, games abound. Washing and cooking facilities great. Bathrooms clean and modern. Proximity... More

Having stayed in one of the other cottages 4 years ago, we had no hesitation in coming back to stay in here again.
