Beautiful, relaxing stay, close to nature

Pros: Location location location
Cons: A bit more information in the house about the local area, how to interact with the wildlife eg should we or should we not feed the kangaroos/possums
Location: Endless as everything is pretty close by driving
Beautifully situated, with gorgeous views and friendly kangaroos everywhere. Close to beach- just a short walk away.

Kangaroos!

Pros: Staff, privacy, view, walks from outside our door, kangaroos!
Spent 2 nights after last minute booking. Bottle of wine and jar of honey to greet us. Got a meat pack from the office to barbecue on the deck - perfect!

Great wildlife and wonderful view

Pros: The location and wildlife.
Cons: The maintenance and some interaction with staff.
Location: Location beautiful with sea views and a short trip down to Stokes Bay which is very protected and a buzz to walk through the tunnel to get there.
Lovely location and the kangaroos were beautiful. The cottage needed some tlc and maintenance work. We did manage to find someone who was standing in for the owners and report some problems but not even the basic things like changing the light bulbs happened over the next 2 days. It maybe a bigger problem but hopefully not an electrical one as the fire alarm was hanging from the ceiling.

The Wildlife Getaway

Pros: It was great to stay away from the regular hotels/motels and find somewhere to forget about all the technology and simply sit and relax.
Cons: A sample size Aerogard.
Location: Surprisingly easy to get too even on the unsealed roads in and around the island generally. This makes it easy to go to Parndana or even Kingscote.
It was great to stay away from the regular hotels/motels and find somewhere to forget about all the technology and simply sit and relax. We both enjoyed the wildlife being so close and although not tame were;t too timid to be within a couple of metres. The vast number of Wallabies and Kangaroos was a treasure to the owners Paul and Katja. And as you sat and watch the possum, goannas, echidnas all were to be seen.

Absolutely loved it. Was close to the centre of the island which made travel easy. As we got there we were greeted by a huge number of roos that surround the property, which made us feel as if we really staying on an island of kangaroos. As the night wears on, the roos are replaced by wallabies which were just as cute. Neither animal is scared of humans and were not spooked if you got too close. The property is just down the road from the beach, which looks like a rock beach at first, but a quick wander through a cave path and you're on a sublime sandy beach instead. The owners were more than helpful and while not there all the time, were just a phone call away and happy to help with anything we needed. A fantastic stay. Thanks Paul and Katja!
