The house itself is well equipped and comfortable. The hosts have made a great effort for this property to be as sustainable and eco as possible, which I commend. Local wildlife was abundant (so be careful when driving at night!) and the serenity a great break from 'city life'. We chose this venue based on proximity to KI highlights and... More

Arrived and let ourselves in. Lovely spacious cabin. Graham arrived later to say hi. Some confusion over the breakfast we had ordered but he arrived back later with a basket of goodies for us. We enjoyed walking to the river (creek) and watching the wildlife. Saw several koalas at the back of the cabin. We used the fire the first... More

We spent 2 nights here last week taking two friends from Malaysia along with us. There are 2 bedrooms - one with queen bed and the other with twin beds and sofas in the lounge that convert to beds if needed. For 4 adults it was a perfect fit. Our friends especially loved the 3 kangaroos that came to our... More

This is the perfect place to stay for a great experience on Kangaroo Island. Kathy and Graeme are such a lovely couple who welcomed me and my friend Christine with open arms! We feel very lucky to have met them. They invited us to feed the kangaroos that you can see everywhere around the area - they came right up... More

I'm still overwhelmed by the welcome we had at the Homestead. We stayed in Cathy and Graeme's own cabin on a B&B basis rather than the self-catering cabin. Location was perfect - very central for visiting everything on the Island. Our hosts could not have been friendlier and we feel very privileged to have been able to share this piece... More

The cabin is less than 10km from Parndana and conveniently located in central Kangaroo Island. The property is a couple of kilometres off Gregors Road, providing a remote and secluded location. When we arrived at the cabin, my first thought was how perfect it would be for children (in particular) as there is so much space. The wildlife that visit... More

We spent a week here and could have stayed forever. Sit by the fireplace and watch the resident wallabies, kangaroos, echidnas and even Kestrel. Our hosts Graeme and Kathy were helpful and welcoming. The homestead is secluded and perfectly positioned to visit all the wonderful island attractions. What a wonderful holiday.

We chose Eleanor River as it was centrally located on Kangaroo Island and for the wildlife too - we were not disappointed! We only wish we could stay longer!! We had 5 days but I think you need more to immerse yourself in the beauty at staying at Eleanor River Homestead and Kangaroo Island! We really enjoyed feeding the kangaroo's,... More

This was our first visit to KI despite living in Adelaide for over 10 years. We chose Eleanor Homestead for location and on the back of other positive reviews. What a great choice it was. The accommodation is fantastic and the location beautiful. Centrally located on the island it is also very handy to all the natural attractions the KI... More

My husband & I arrived early evening...driving down an unsealed road...greeted by all kinds of nocturnal wildlife! Kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas and so much more. We knew that we had found that "special" place. Beautiful sunrises with a wide variety of songbirds and kangaroos watching the sun rise as well, colorful sunsets with the silhouettes of kangaroos in the distance and... More
