Romantic & secluded luxury

A great romantic escape on top of a hill overlooking a beautiful beach in a secluded location. You're right away from the action in Snelling Beach but worth the short drive. Hannaford & Sachs restaurant is superb but the only place for miles so be self sufficient or have dinner before arriving.

Very relaxing and comfortable for a long weekend

Pros: A very remote location, but the views and comfort level made it worth it. The staff are lovely and welcome was warm. The homestead was well equipped.
Cons: An umbrella or two would have been appreciated. The ensuite in the main bathroom was a let down (design flaw obviously).
Location: The view of, and access to, Snellings Beach was 6 stars! Hannaford and Sachs dining experience is an absolute must do.
A wonderful long weekend with the kids. It's a long drive from everything, but this made the experience very relaxing. The stock of fire wood was really appreciated. Probably one of the best accommodation options on the island.

Perfect KI Coastal Retreat

So relaxed after a wonderful few days at the Sky House - perfect place to be to watch the once in 50 year Storm roll in! Higlights: spectacular coastal views; lovely styling; cracking fireplace; sublime bath; super comfy bed; amazing selection of books, movies, boardgames and records. Hannaford and Sach's restaurant nearby was closed unfortunately but the Sky House kitchen was well equipped and the fresh KI King George whiting and oysters we bought were delicious. Nick was very helpful - even organising candles and torch in case we lost power in the Storm!

Amazing Experience

The Homestead was one of the most amazing places to stay. The home was comfortable, clean and it made our honeymoon.
