We recently spent 3 nights in the larger of Frank's KI Garden Cottages. A beautifully modern house with 4 bedrooms and two large bathrooms, and a spacious open-plan kitchen/dining/living room. Washer/dryer (bonus!), no WiFi, well-supplied kitchen (though no food supplies, so be sure to get your groceries before the shops close), and the showers had fantastic water pressure! Although we...

Frank was a wonderful host and went beyond his way to make my first trip to Kangaroo Island a very memorable one! I traveled with a big group of 7 at the end of November and he was very warm and welcoming, checking on us and being ever so patient as we only arrived late in the evening (as one... More

Great spot to stay when visiting Kangaroo Island. We stayed in the rear two storey cottage at the end of February 2016 and loved it. All the modern conveniences you could wish for. No running out of hot water here! Modern well equipped place with a great layout. The beach and walking track into Kingscote is only across the road... More

Everything about the cottages was nice. They are well equipped and pleasant. The only suggestion I could offer is for Frank to be more observant of others privacy. During the stay, he popped over once soon after we had arrived which was OK as he offered some great advice on places to go and see. Frank then arrived back on... More

We stayed at Kangaroo Island Garden Cottages for four nights 22 – 26 September as part of an extended break in Australia. The owner Frank welcomed us when we first arrived and was very helpful in making recommendations for walks, places to eat, and other activities. The house has plenty of space, and is extremely well laid out and equipped.... More

Have been there twice now (thanks is to our friends for organising it). Very clean, tidy, easy to settle into. Lovely rambling veggie garden out back, plenty of space to share ( we were in the large villa). A little noisy due to the open pla nature of the upstairs rooms. Really enjoyed our breakfasts on the front porch. Thanks!

We booked to stay in one of the two cottages for 4 nights. Spacious accommodation with air conditioning (although we needed to set it to heat the property on the first night!)

Our family stayed in the villa for five nights. It was spacious and very comfortable. The owners, Frank and Kathy, are very friendly and helpful. The design is quite innovative and a credit to Frank's expertise as an architect. The furnishings are excellent.
