“A little piece of heavenly Kangaroo Island!!!!”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

My husband and I stayed at Flour Cask Bay in December 2012 for 3 nights. I'm so happy we found this little piece of heaven it was absolutely beautiful. If you are looking for hosted b&b type accommodation with access to a private beach and with expert KI knowledge then definitely stay at Flour Cask bay with Dave and Jeannie!! We have beautiful memories of our stay, especially cheese, wine & crackers on the private beach!!!! lots of kangaroos at night!!! we were even treated to a beautiful home cooked meal on our last night!!!We will definitely be back next time we are in KI!!!!!! Thanks for our stay!!!!!

Flour Cask Bay is ideal for couples who like to stay in a place far away from anywhere. The hosts Dave & Jeannie are very welcoming but not intrusive. Dave is a good source of information on what to do on Kangaroo Island. There is a wild & secluded beach close by but access probably requires an average level of fitness. We had some of the best sleeps ever - absolutely quiet apart from a few native animals & the ocean. Although the accommodation is very clean & comfortable you will more than likely sit outside much of the time.

Room Tip: Rooms are bed sit style with a good size kitchen.

Thanks for review Ces. Have just figured how to reply to reviews. You know we are 20 years behind the times on KI just like our computor skills, in fact we only heard of Trip Advisor just before you came to stay. Looks like everyone pretty happy with Flour Cask Bay Retreat. Hope you are getting some good sleep home now with hustle and bustle of your city life. Don't reckon Jeannie and I could handle it too well. Look forward to seeing you next time Cheers Dave Jeannie and Chloe
