We stayed at Demole River Retreat for 5 nights and we cannot recommend it highly enough. Set in an amazing location, it's private, secluded and the closest thing you have to neighbours is the incredible wildlife.
There is a real sense of a 'home away from home' - the house had everything we needed, was well appointed, super clean, comfortable and it's eco-friendly to boot! The two bedrooms, spacious lounge & dining, huge open plan kitchen, lovely bathroom and excellent deck & BBQ area meant that we felt like we could stay a month! The house would be perfect for a family or two couples as both bedrooms are very large and you wouldn't feel cramped.
You really do feel privileged to be able to share the home of some very friendly Kangaroos, sneaky but cute possums and a myriad of bird life.
Graham is an exceptional host - very welcoming. He was all too happy to share his extensive local knowledge, teach us how to catch delicious marron (right in our backyard!!) and show us a few secret spots that were more beautiful than any postcard could portray.
We highly recommend Demole River Retreat for anyone looking for accommodation on Kangaroo Island. We'll be back!
