My partner and I stayed in Cabin 5 after being evacuated from the Flinders Chase due to the bushfires in the national park. The manager, Georgia, is lovely and very responsive over the phone, and was able to find us a cabin last minute given we had to forfeit other accomodation we had booked. She has been such a help to us and we are so grateful. The cabin was clean, well equipped and in a great location amongst the bush. The electric hot plate and microwave enabled us to cook a decent dinner and there was an aircon unit and fan to keep the place cool. We have stayed in many cabins around Australia so we love this type of accomodation. Highly recommend for anyone who likes bush accomodation!
Cabin No 7 was orginally booked for 2 nights through a Website but I called the owners of Kangaroo Island Cabin directly expecting they would match the Website rate only to find out when leaving that had not match the Wedsite rate but had incresed the nightly rate by $15 . Cabin no 7 was rundown very dusty & the Air Conditioning Unit did not work , the main bed was very short not a requarlar length any 183 cms would find it difficult to sleep . i would suggest staying somewhere esle other than Kangaroo Island Cabins They also had a sign saying that there is a $50 charge if the Cabin is not tiby when you depart.
We arrived here expecting clean well appointed cabins. I took my luggage in and thought I had dropped something on the floor. I wiped it up but had to clean a lot more than I expected. The floor was filthy. I am thankful I did not need to do a lot of cooking. I used up food left over from our previous cabin so the microwave was sufficient to heat the meal. There was a fry pan - I did not check to see if it worked. There was no stove top or oven. This is not sufficient for anyone staying for more than a day. We were there for 3 nights. We went out one night. The plastic toilet seat needs repairing as it is not attached to one side of the toilet. There were a few trees around and I did enjoy seeing the birds in the morning and evening.
After staying in many cabins, I was extremely disappointed at the cleanliness & facilities in this old cabin. Situated in a paddock, not walking distance from town, up a long, unmade road, with few trees. The crockery was unclean & mug stuck to shelf as it was unwashed & sugary. Kitchenette was old & lucky we didn’t need to use it. Bed linen was old & tired. Curtains were thin & broken. Lounge suite was covered in greasy marks & aircon was old old noisy type. Very disappointed.
Value for money, close to kingscote, free laundry and kangaroos at your door, what more could you want. Cabin was a little dated, but clean and reasonably equipped. Being close to Kingscote was handy even if it did mean more travel time to other destinations, but it was quiet, not too many cabins, friendly owners, which more than made up for the travel time to the tourist spots. Would stay there again.
