“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

The view, the amenities, the furnishings, all prefect. Yes, I wish it were mine.
We stayed as a party of three in September.
Unfortunately, we had things to do, but ideally if you are heading this way, make sure you factor in doing nothing. The view is so splendid, the wild life aplenty, the comfort top notch, it almost makes it counterproductive to venture anywhere else.
Book ahead, it's just two of a kind.

Room Tip: Bedroom really are optimised for the view. Just make sure to bring good food - it take a good drive...

This place was amazing! I was visiting with 2 couples and me. The sleeping arrangements worked well as there was 2 bedrooms and a cot for me. The home was beautiful. Clean and had everything a vacationer needed including washing machine, full kictchen, 2 beautiful bathrooms, beach chairs, outdoor grill, and more. My favorite times were sitting on the back porch enjoying a bottle of wine and reading a book while watching the sea, sheep & kangaroos. We did multiple day trips on the island but also enjoyed heading to the local beaches. Kangaroo Island is a remote location and this home brings all its beauty to one place. I would recommend it for anyone and everyone.

Idyllic location and a great architectural design. Sit on the front deck and soak up the northern sun and watch the wedge tail eagles soar over the valley. Pop to Snelling Beach for swimming, walking or fishing or venture out further to explore KI. There are 2 separate units each with 2 bedrooms. We stayed in the East Wing and were barely aware of our West Wing neighbors due to the clever design. Later we were joined by friends who booked the west wing and we were able to share the whole property which worked really well.

Having originally booked the whole venue for 7 days our other 3 couples dropped out for health/business reasons, so we decided to go ahead and with some trepidation took over the West Wing. It was the best thing that ever happened to us! We spent the first 15 mins rushing about taking it all in - nothing prepares you for that first excitement which just continues to unfold each day. Excellent amenities, dreamy candlelit dinners and what a joy to watch the sun rise over those bosomy hills and hear the shuffle and cough of the sheep passing right in front of our deck on their way to their "day" paddock, then hear the leaders calling them to follow home for the night. Kangaroos nearby, including one on the beach. And yes, that beach. Pristine and obviously kept that way by locals and visitors alike so proud to have this piece of heaven to ourselves.

Having found this wonderful home on the Stayz website we were excited about arriving and enjoying our long awaited holiday.

Even though we'd viewed the photos, nothing could have prepared us for the wondrous views and well appointed west wing, it is truely breathtaking and has been etched in our mind and souls forever - who could want for anything more? The view was amazing from the kitchen, the bedroom, the shower and especially the deck.

We explored the Island during the day and were back on the deck each afternoon to enjoy the wildlife, fine chilled beverages and wonderful local produce; the seafood from Kingscote, oysters from American River and marron from Andermel. As we love to cook, your kitchen was a dream and we worked unison over the massive space. It was so easy to relax and live in this part of the world.

In our short time we managed to see so much - Stokes Bay, King Georges, Snelling Beach, a peep into the Cliff house and beach hut, Andermel, Vivonne and the sea lion colony on the beach at Seal Bay. One day we packed up a picnic lunch and went to Western River Cove with the beach chairs and umbrella and had this amazing piece of paradise to ourselves, albeit a large goanna and a few gulls. Another day we decided we'd have a "books and beer day" on the deck, how totally decadent! The whole island is so unspoilt and we found ourselves the only 4WD on the road for most of the time.

People are so friendly and helpful everywhere, such a change from our busy Sydneysiders. Finally, our neighbours were wonderful company. We thank you for sharing this wonderful home and rest assured we will be back very soon. ps: the local wildlife is amazing - koalas, kangaroos, hooded plover and the wedged tailed eagles, the flora and fauna just perfect.

We came here with my Fiancé's parents for four nights. Everything about this place was amazing....Great views, beautifully interior decorations and a lovely quiet setting in the hills!
We enjoyed every second that we spent in the house and had wished we had booked for longer, the house had all the facilities that you could need, it had a real feeling of a home from home :) Loved the view from the shower over looking the sea!!
Cannot wait to come back!! Highly Recommended for a great getaway.

Excellent location in the middle of Kangaroo Island above a gorgeous beach. Brilliant views from all the rooms. A beautifully appointed house throughout and it is in such a peaceful location.The local food is wonderful and plentiful. It is just a fantastic island and well worth the visit. What more could you want?
