Beautiful house and so roomy. We were two couples and had so much space and great to have two bathrooms and separate living area.

Lovely to sit on the patio with a glass of wine or meal overlooking the ferries coming in.

Whole house was clean and well maintained.

“Sea View, Serenity and blissful sounds of bird song”
Reviewed July 9, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Had a wonderful 3 nights at Sea shells first week in July. Sea Shells has all you need to have an enjoyable stay. The house is immaculate in its cleanliness and comfort. Great views, peaceful bush out the back that attracts some lovely bird life and a fully furnished home with 3-4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 living areas and all the comforts any one could expect. The hosts live in the front self contained home and are so unobtrusive that you wouldn't know they were there. I would totally recommend this property for any person or family looking for a base to chill out and relax or explore Kangaroo Island.

“Amazing, clean and beautiful”
Reviewed April 27, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Just stayed here with my family of five, the youngest is one year old. Lovely architectural house, felt so clean, peaceful and homely. The owners have considered and provided everything, even a toy rubber duck for the bath, and current magazines!

“BETTER THAN HOME”
Reviewed October 12, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Only a very short drive off the ferry, the Seashells is located on a very quiet street with a great view over the bay. The house offered everything a traveller needs. Great kitchen, full laundry , excellent bathroom and super comfortable beds. The living is spacious with large comfortable couch and chairs from which to watch the large flatscreen or enjoy the music. The deck is a great place to enjoy breakfast or sunsets.

“Couldn't be better”
Reviewed April 12, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

When we arrived we were greeted by two smiling faces which happened to be the owners who also lived on the property. They showed us through the accommodation which was five stars plus: The view was tremendous.
We were very comfortable and the hosts went out of their way to inform us of where to go and what to do.
We had a most enjoyable stay and could not recommend it highly enough.
Many thanks.

“Excellent in Every Way!”
Reviewed December 8, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

people found this review helpful

Penneshaw is a sleepy little town, near the only ferry to Kangaroo Island. Convenience is one reason to stay there. But the best reason is this marvelous vacation home with clear ocean views out the front and wallabies in the back. It's spotlessly clean and well kept, and fully equipped with everything you need including a laundry room with laundry powder. It's only about a 10 minute walk to the ferry or the beach. The owners were super helpful and even picked us up from the ferry so we wouldn't have to deal with luggage on the walk. If I could give a place a higher rating than 5, this place would deserve it!

“Like Your Own Holiday House”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

people found this review helpful

Seashells Penneshaw was quite a surprise. My girlfriend and I stayed there for the last 3 nights of our 9 night stay on Kangaroo Island in June. We expected a standard holiday unit, but found that the place had just about everything from candles and an impressive collection of herbs & spices in the kitchen to laundry detergent. It was like walking into your family's holiday home! The hosts, Raelene and Ian, were friendly and very helpful. Seashells is conveniently located in town and close to the ferry terminal. Being on the third tier of houses in Penneshaw gives you a panoramic view of Hog Bay and across the strait to the mainland. You can watch the ferries come and go from the street front if that interests you, which it did me.
