“Relax in comfort with a great view”

Reviewed 12 Apr 2014

Kestrel Downs was excellent value for money and even better than we expected. Within a few minutes of driving off the ferry we were enjoying a relaxing cuppa on the verandah, enjoying views of Pelican Lagoon and watching birdlife and kangaroos coming in for a drink just a few metres away! The modern comfortable home was clean and well appointed, with comfortable furniture and beds. And it's nicely isolated and private, so it felt like Kangaroo Island belonged just to us! We definitely recommend it!

“Stunningly peaceful; great property”

Reviewed 11 Feb 2014

Loved Kestrel Downs the moment we arrived! It's location is superb and house gently in harmony with the surroundings. Beautiful water views from inside and outside and sooo peaceful! We spent a lot of time chilling out on the verandah, a great spot to watch the birds and kangaroos at the bird bath. Stunning kitchen with everything you need and loved the decor. In the end, apart from ducking down to the beach, we didn't stray far from home, too many good things to enjoy. Will definitely be back!

“The Best Place to Stay”

Reviewed 13 Jan 2014

We stayed at Kestrel Downs for 2 weeks during December 2013. It is the perfect location to stay on Kangaroo Island as it is elevated and has magnificent views from the house over Pelican lagoon and is within walking distance to beautiful Pennington Beach. It has wildlife right on the doorstep with wallabies and kangaroos drinking from the bird bath in the garden in the morning and early evening. As soon as we walked in we felt relaxed and the artwork and furnishings contributed to that comfortable holiday feeling. The house is large and newly renovated and would easily accommodate 6 people. The kitchen is a dream and has everything you could possible want or need. In fact, Kestrel Downs has everything and we couldn't think of one thing that could be improved or added. At the end of our stay we were very reluctant to leave.

We loved our stay at Kestrel Downs. It's a special place with location & views that are stunning, surrounded by bushland & wildlife. The house is very comfortable & welcoming with many artistic touches. It gave us the genuine KI experience we were looking for.

This is a self contained house that was very relaxing to stay at. It is clean and everything we needed was provided. Easy place to find and privacy is assured. Sat back each night and watched the wallabies and kangarooos come in to drink from the bird bath. You will need to buy all your food supplies as it is a 30km drive to the supermarket but I couldn't fault the place. It was what we wanted, a house with an amazing view over the bay, especially on dusk and got to see dolphins leaping out of the water at the surf beach in the mornings.

Response from the owner Thanks for the great comments, Mark. you were a wonderful guest and we hope to see you in the future. However, I would like to respond to your comment regarding "distance to food" - The American River township is only 7 km from Kestrel Downs. It has a general store with supermarket lines, fruit and veg, stationary, hardware and petrol; also a shop which sells fresh, local oysters, a restaurant, a post office, a church, a boat launching ramp etc. There is a larger town with additional retail variety 22km away.
