This was our second KI lighthouse accommodation and the accommodation was a little anticlimactic after Cape Willoughby. The buildings themselves are classic South Australian stone structures with wide verandahs and spacious rooms, however the setting and atmosphere of the cottage are rather bleak and the house was quite dark and gloomy inside (small windows etc.) and had a more depressing feel to it than the cottages at Cape Willoughby. Certainly this helps empathise with the plight of the lighthouse keepers and their families but it may not be what you are looking for in a holiday. The bathroom and kitchen were a bit more basic although there was a wonderful old wood stove in the kitchen. The location is great, although obviously quite remote. It's a real experience and a privilege to have the park to yourselves after most of the day trippers have gone and the cottages are only a short drive to Remarkable Rocks and a short walk to Admirals Arch.
