“Fabulous, Architect - Designed Rental, Perfectly Located”

Reviewed 13 Oct 2013

We have stayed at Cassini Beach House a few times now as are guaranteed a luxurious and relaxing stay. Perfectly located on Island Beach (away from the more congested, developed areas further down the beach) the house is one of only a few situated in this particular location. The accomodation itself is architecturally designed to make the most of the gorgeous views over the bay, with spacious bedrooms, dining/living areas/deck and interiors designed to feel warm and cosy in winter and easy and breazy in the summer. A fabulous rental choice to make the most of the white sandy stretch of beach, crystal clear, blue water and landscape. Spotlessly clean, modern, quiet and picturesque -we would not consider staying elsewhere.

“Perfect! We would go back tomorrow!”

Our hosts have been great since we made the initial booking. Really great people who made sure we were happy. The home itself is in a fabulous location with the gorgeous beach (which we pretty much had to ourself) only a few steps away. Beautifully decorated with everything you need. Spotlessly clean, very quiet and a great array of music, movies and books. We had lots of visitors from the extensive wildlife on the island including a family of dolphins only metres from the shoreline! Cassini Beach House was certainly the highlight of our holiday to South australia and we would highly recommend it if you are planning a visit to KI!

“Heavenly Holiday Retreat”

Reviewed 7 Feb 2013

Cassini Beach House is a beautiful, luxurious yet relaxed haven fitted out with consummate skill and loving care. The beachfront location provides privacy, glorious expansive views, a tranquil swimming beach and ease of proximity to Penneshaw and Kingscote. We enjoyed day trips all over KI, at the same time knowing that upon return we'd be re-entering a slice of heaven. Cassini's owner, Fiona McLeay, is a gem! Her thoughtful,friendly yet highly professional service enhanced our pleasure. If you're after a spacious, high quality KI holiday escape in a serene environment then my family and I have no hesitation in giving Cassini Beach House our highest recommendation.

“The best beach house I have ever stayed in!”

Reviewed 16 Jul 2012

The whole experience of renting this house for a week in July this year was easy, informative and a pleasure. The directions to get there and get in were excellent. We arrived by ferry on a beautiful warm winter's day, walked along the beach, read on the deck and after dinner settled in to sit by the open fire. The house was so warm upstairs, due to double glazed windows and the fire, that we didn't even know it was winter outside. We woke the next morning to the sound of the ocean and could see the view of the sea while lying in bed. The house is beautifully decorated. The bathrooms are brand new and modern, beds very very comfortable and the kitchen extremely well equipped. The view and sunsets were amazing. The window seat in the living area gets warm north sun and is the perfect spot to read or watch the view. We also absolutely loved Kangaroo Island. It still has the feeling of being remote and untouched. The ecological development blends so perfectly with the local environment. The seals at Seal Bay were my favourite but I think our two children would probably say they preferred Quad Biking and visiting Little Sahara. My husband loved fishing and caught King George Whiting off the jetty at Penneshaw. We also ate local Marron we bought at american River and we bought honey and yogurt from local farms. I can honestly say that our recent stay was one of my most relaxing holidays. I can also speak for my family who all said they would love to return again to KI and Cassini Beach House.

Response from the owner Thank you for your comments. We also find winter a great time of the year to enjoy all that Kangaroo Island has to offer, with a much milder climate than we have in Adelaide and definitely quieter all around. The window seat is a prize spot for a bit of sunny relaxing and quickly claimed!! Well done to your husband with the fishing - nothing nicer than having whiting straight from the sea. Please come back, we would love to see you again at Island Beach.

“Fantastic weekend in brilliant spot”

Reviewed 17 Jun 2012

A brilliant house, packed with everything you could ever need. Stunning fireplace kept us warm all weekend and ample books, magazines and games for the rainy days. Well set up to cater for large families with ample room for the kids to be away from the adults. Brilliant spot with stunning views over the beach - can't wait to head back in summer.

“An amazing weekend far from the madding crowd, this is the ultim”

Reviewed 16 Jun 2012

Cassini is the ultimate getaway, nestled in scrub and moments from the most beautiful beach and with 180 degree views of the ocean from the magnificent deck, you could sit all day alone , or with family and friends, ( its a generous deck ) watching the sea, or play all day on the beach popping back regularly for sustainance or take a hike or a lingering stroll in the fresh air and feel that you are in one of the world's most sought after and luxurious destinations. This secluded location offers peace and tranquility with all of life's luxuries and it's only a couple of hours from adelaide . If you want to get away from it all in the most wonderful natural environment that is Kangaroo Island you must visit Island Beach and stay at Cassini, we can't wait to go back !
