“A home away from home, in a beautiful surrounding.”
Reviewed January 21, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

A really beautiful place, like 8 years ago! The place is peaceful, quiet, clean, well equiped and smart as it was then. It was a great pleasure to be there again.

“Great place for family stay in KI”

It was amazing that the house was quite good, clean and convenient, I had everything I'd like. It's near Vivionne Bay by few minutes' walking. As we know, water shortage is on island while here the storage with 3 cans was enough for one family for 2-3 days. Open kitchen was great place to make delicious food for my family. Wallabies always came to the house at dawn for food, the owner is very kind providing specific food for us to feed those Wallabies.

We stayed at Island Breeze fir two nights in early September with friends from the U.S. the house was spotlessly clean, fully kitted out with modern appointments. We relaxed with wallabies and blue wrens at the door each night. The location allowed us to travel quickly to all major KI attractions, really got 4 days holiday with two night accommodation. Excellent all round experience.

“Hidden luxury”

The photos advertising this place on the Sealink website (where I found the accommodation) just don't do this retreat justice! Hubby and I were shocked when we walked in the door! Not only is it set up appropriately to accommodate a family on holiday, but everything oozes QUALITY. The little things did certainly not go unnoticed! Our 2yo loooooooved being able to feed the wallabies from the decking (we loved watching him attempt to be "quiet" in his excitement) and as a budding photographer I had some amazing opportunities to take photos either on the property, or within a short walk. In terms of location - it was a perfect spot to base ourselves to travel to the western side of the island - no excessive drives home after hiking through Flinders Chase! Only downside was that we lost all reception (phone, Internet, GPS) about a minute out of Vivonne Bay so we were not able to navigate our way to the accommodation until we ran into some locals who could direct us to the General Store - while the peace and quiet from technology was refreshing, losing the gps was a bit of a bugger. I would recommend that a printable map be included with your booking confirmation, to prepare you incase there is no locals out for a walk! A bit more "landscaping" of the front steps would be appreciated too - some of those steps are a bit big! Lol All in all, we absolutely loved our stay, and would absolutely consider staying there again on our next visit!!!!

“Perfect for exploring the Island”
Reviewed February 26, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

person found this review helpful

The house was perfect in terms of our needs (two couples travelling together) and in terms of location (for visiting the main attractions). Everything seemed to have been thought of - the house was very well equipped and had everything we needed. We loved the wallabies that visited each evening, and walking to the beautiful Vivonne Bay beach which is just around the corner. Kangaroo Island is a perfect holiday destination (so much to see and do - recommend the Remarkable Rocks, Admirals Arch, sampling local produce at the Sheep diary and the honey farms, and a bit of adventure with Kangaroo Island Outdoor Action in Vivonne Bay, quad biking and sand boarding at the amazing sand dunes at Little Sahara. And Island Breeze is the perfect base.

Liked best: The location; layout of property; sitting out on verandah feeding wallabies
Liked least: Nothing really. Front steps were quite steep - for older guests. There is also no mains water, so dependent on tanks in garden, and the pump broke down one day and were without water for a bit. It was however fixed very quickly by the caretaker.

“5 Star at Island Breeze”
Reviewed February 23, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We stayed at Island Breeze with our son and his partner for three night in January 2014. We were very happy with the accommodation. Excellent internal layout for two couples with bedrooms at either end of property. Attractive lounge, diner and kitchen with access to veranda. The property was very clean and well presented. Very well equipped, even food for the wallabies and board games to play in the evenings! A short walk to beautiful Vivonne Bay, what more could you want. The property is also in a good position to explore Kangaroo Island as all areas are within reach of a days drive. We really enjoyed the Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch. We would certainly recommend Island Breeze for accommodation and only wish we could have stayed longer.
