“Great house in wonderful middle of nowhere”
Reviewed March 21, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We loved our stay at the Ecopia Retreat, the house is wonderfully located in the middle of the nature, and still relatively close to the highlights of the island. We saw lots of wild animals jumping and running around the house.
The house is very nicely decorated, perfectly clean and offers all you need for great holidays on KI. Strongly recommended.

“Absolutely beautiful place to stay”
Reviewed February 6, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

It's a very nice holiday rental. If I have to rate it by stars it would be at least 4.5. The house located in heartland of KI, to get there you'll need to travel on mud road, we drove 2 wheel drive and it was completely fine. The moment you open the door and walk in, you will be in love with the house. You can tell that owner put a lot of effort into this house. From furniture to artworks on the wall, fully equipped kitchen, BBQ, fireplace, outdoor bench. House has floor to ceiling glass, a deck is connected to the house through a sliding door. Roll up the blind, beautiful grassland jump into your eyes, and thanks to the deck and window, the house simply blends in with the outside view naturally. open the sliding door, breeze from Antarctica sweep your face gently. It's just amazing. We had two relax and peaceful nights there, will defiantly return if we visit KI again. For future guest, keep eye on kangaroo outside on the grassland, they will come very close to the house at night.

“Clean and new house in quiet location with lovely views”
Reviewed February 2, 2013 for a stay in April 2012

The home is well off the beaten track with only kangaroos and cockatoos for neighbours. It has a country homestead feel with wide verandahs. It is a new home, well presented and suited our family well. The only thing we lacked was a microwave. We had a short stay of 2 nights as part of a longer stay in KI. The location is central so we spent our days sightseeing on the south east coast with easy access to Seal Bay, Little Sahara, Vivonne Bay and the Flinders Chase National Park. We could easily have enjoyed another couple of days relaxing in and around the house if we had the time..

“Absolutely beautiful”
Reviewed September 23, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Fantastic 3 bed house, (2 queen bedrooms, 1 with 2 x single beds), perfectly set in its private surrounds. Log fire, plenty of parking, laundry facilities, BBQ, games, etc within the house. Surrounded by a verandah with all rooms enjoying sweeping views of the surrounding countryside. Set by a river, with wallabies, kangaroos, koalas, possums and echidnas spotted during our stay on the property. It's a 7 km drive on a very good dirt road off the main South Hwy. Centrally located, and so a perfect place to explore incredible spots such as Admirals Arch and the remarkables, Seal Bay (just down the road and highly recommended), Raptor (birds of prey), about a 40 minute drive to Kingscote (visit the disused old school close to Kingscote), lavendar farms, and other wonderful sites. Lots and lots of wildlife.
