We stayed, with another couple, for four wonderful days at this lovely cottage within a stone's throw of the beach. As the bedrooms (3) were similar in size, and all with en suite, this was a much better choice than the other properties, although without the view (and steep climb up from the beach). Perry, the English manager was on... More

My wife and I married during the christmas period. Needless to say the extended parties over this period was numerous. Lifetime Private Retreats was just what the doctor ordered. We stayed at the Sky House, apon driving down the drive way our breaths were taken away with the north coast view of Kangaroo Is (KI). The house is a type... More

we had spent 2 days in the cliff house with a stunning view , amazing beach and excellent food . Thanks a lot again to rachel and sacha who have made the stay fantastic . We were in family and really enjoyed everything. One big regret not to have spent more time in this place.

Spent 4 nights in the "SkyHouse" for my wife's birthday along with our 6 month old son. Very positive experience all around. Perry (the GM) was really helpful prior to and at our arrival. The house itself benefits from absolutely stunning views and was stocked with games, paint set, telescope as well as a record player with a super eclectic... More

I Knew it was a little isolated but it was the perfect place for us.(there is a road in-between the house and the beach but there is no traffic) The Breakfast Package was superb as was the Salad & Veggies . So grateful for the Seafood Platters we had... More

I can't say enough about our family's experience at Lifetime Private Retreats on Kangaroo Island. Our stay at the stone house was PERFECT for us in so many ways. My husband and I were traveling with two of our children age 11 and 13, one boy and one girl. Because the stone house has three bedrooms, it gave us all... More

This is a great place to hide from the world for a short time. After 10 days we headed for home feeling very sad. We would recomend you get the girls to cook a dinner for you one night we were amazed and enjoyed every bite!

Our stay at The Cliff House. Imagine this - start the day with a walk along "your" own beach at Snellings, breakfast overlooking the beach, spend the day exploring this magnificent island for sights and tastes, return "home" for a glass of wine in the jacuzzi overlooking the beach, take delivery of our gourmet evening meal ( thanks to Chef...
