“Authentic Kangaroo Island Experience”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

We stayed for 2 nights in the beautiful guest house at Cape Cassini. Our room was superb with a magnificent view over the ocean. We enjoyed walking in the grounds and the visits of the local kangaroos to the garden. The hospitality was excellent and we made full use of the owner, David Welford's, experienced knowledge of the island. He is a qualified guide and took us around the island seeing the local wildlife, scenery and landscapes.

Cape Cassini Wilderness Retreat is a fabulous lodge, and I would highly recommend it as a base to explore Kangaroo Island. The Retreat is located on a secluded cliff on the northern shores of the island with stunning ocean-views. My family of four stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed the many amnenities that were available. Our two rooms were spacious and clean, and we were allowed full use of the common areas of this lodge. The kangaroos and wallabies were plentiful, and the grounds of this property were enjoyable to walk and explore.I would recommend utilizing David as a private tour guide as he was very knowelgeable in regards to the Island's wildlife and worked extremely hard to ensure our satisfaction. This lodge is eco-friendly and David is in constant reminder of the significance of conservation and how we can utilize the information that he provides in our everyday lifestyles. As David works by himself, be prepared to assist in the daily preparation of meals during your stay.

Room Tip: Ocean-view rooms enjoy a full balcony and are well worth additional cost.
