    Charlie Bates Cottage is an iconic part of Penneshaw's history. The cottage has proudly stood watch over the beautiful shores of Hog's Bay for more than 110 years. An original limestone settler's cottage, it was built for Charles Bates, son of Harry Bates. Both father and son with their extended families made an amazing and very colourful contribution to the early settlement of the East End of Kangaroo Island.

    Once the only homestead on a large landholding in Penneshaw, the cottage still remains today even though the town has been been significantly populated....in Kangaroo Island terms that is! Nestled on a large, sloping block she boasts magnificent ocean views, is conv...

    Additional Location Information
    A picture book seaside village, Penneshaw is the ideal location for your stay on Kangaroo Island. Superb swimming beaches, stunning scenery, fantastic fishing, abundant wildlife and a well serviced town centre are just some of the attractions Penneshaw has to offer.

    Just at the end of the road from Charlie's, Hogs Bay Beach is a great place to swim, see dolphins or the occasional seal at play and has excellent grassed BBQ facilities located near the Penguin Information Centre and ferry terminal.

    The centre is open nightly for tours featuring Penneshaw's cutest residents, the Little Fairy Penguins. Tammar wallabies roam the streets in the evening, stopping at Charlie's for a munch on the lawn or some fruit.

    The recently renovated Penneshaw Hotel and Sorrento's Restaurant offer quality meals with ocean views, or after a hard days touring if you don't feel like cooking or eating out, there are several take away options including a pizza bar and fish and chi...

We regularly enjoy our stay at Charlie Bates Cottage and this time around was no exception. Cold winters nights with a roaring fireplace and waking up to views of the ocean and watching the ferry come in from Cape Jarvis whilst having breakfast on the verandah. Its a great base to explore the entire island and plenty of room to... more

This holiday rental had it all. Spotlessly clean, historical, nicely decorated, comfortable,... we had a wonderful stay. Having meals on the porch with a view over the ocean and Australia in the distance was magical. Owners were easily reached and very helpful with any issues. more
