We chose to stay in Parndana as the township is near the centre of Kangaroo Island and we would minimise driving by staying in the centre. Ficifolia Lodge suited our purposes for a couple driving on the island. Ficifolia Lodge is about a 100m walk to the only pub in town and about the same to the General store and... More

We, like other reviewers, wanted to stay in the center of Kangaroo Island so that we could easily drive all over the island in our 2 days there. We chose Ficifolia based on all of the positive reviews. Our impressions are mixed. We had a two bedroom unit that was very clean but certainly nothing special. All of the rooms... More

Just spent four very enjoyable days on Kangaroo Island based on Ficifolia Lodge. Centrally located in Parndana it was an ideal location to tour the island. The accommodation is first class and the owner Sue could not have been more helpful in suggesting places to visit. Her friendly welcome set up a memorable stay. I would highly recommend Ficifolia to... More

The Ficifolia Lodge is a wonderful surprise, very well appointed rooms, better than many of others with excellent reputations. Parndana is a small town but this did not affect the excellence of the accommodation.

This little place nestled in the middle of the island has everything you could need. Ficifolia gave us both a central location and a comforting place to come home to after a busy day of exploring. Sue is a very warm and inviting host. She graciously mapped out itineraries for us for the two full days we were on the... More

Ficifolia was a great find that both maximised our two days in KI by being in Parndana (KI central) and gave us a welcome home on the road with self-catering facilities and super comfortable beds. A few streets off the main highway it was quiet and the furnishings gave us complete darkness to ensure the best sleep possible. Sue was... More

An ideal central location to get around Kangaroo island. We were allocated to an apartment with 2 bedrooms and a living/dining room. Place is clean and with a kitchenette if you decide to cook. You can park your car just outside. A very friendly host, Sue, introduced to us all about the island. And even told us where to lookout... More

Cheap Luxury , Beautiful! it has everything that you need. It was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. There is complimentary WiFi with good speed. It is centrally located for attraction around the centre & western end of KI. I would have no problem recommending this accommodation to friends.

Situated in the very sleepy Pardana the lodge is central to everything. It's not new but excellently maintained and well designed with comfy couches, fast free wifi and good heating. The kitchen is well set up and well stocked and after 10pm we didn't hear a sound. It may have helped we were the only guests and it was a... More

I cannot recommend this place highly enough as a half way stop whilst exploring the island from Flinders Chase back to Penneshaw. The units are brand new, very modern, spotless clean. The beds were comfortable and with very warm duvet. The service was friendly and efficient. There are some convenience stores and a bottle shop within walking distance.
