Nice view but poor room

The cottages were in a good location. Close enough to Flinders Chase and other attractions on the South and West side of the island. The Room itself was very basic but paij the bathroom the floor was rotting through and sagged in several places. There was a lot of water damage

Great spot!

Pros: Best part was the friendly staff and delicious meals they prepared (king george whiting is a must eat). Also were very helpful when a mistake was made booking 2 cabins instead of the intended 1 via wotif. Look out for kyle the koala and family.
Cons: Not much! Though perhaps the toilet block could do with a spruce up.
Location: Perfect for exploring sites and activities on south of island. Ideal for seal watching naturally!

So peaceful & isolated

Great place to get away from it all and enjoy the peaceful and private surroundings. Friendly staff. Only minor fault is the room had dead bugs and cobwebs in areas, otherwise loved it.

Hi Amy, Thank you so much for your review! We greatly appreciate it. We are sorry to hear that your partner had a hard time sleeping because of his height. My husband is a tall man and understands the pain of standard sized beds. We are looking into making one of our rooms a double room for that reason. We count on our guests reviews to help us out in making changes. Thanks again and we are very happy you enjoyed your stay at Seal Bay Cottages and Kaiwarra Cafe.
