“A wonderful relaxing time spent in an incredible environment wit”
From the moment we we greated at the Homestead by Sarah it was so friendly and inviting.The drive to the cottege through the farm was beautiful but the first glimpse of the cottege and it location and views was incredible. The house was very special with all rooms facing the ocean and very private. We were able to walk the hills and headlands and down to the beach which was very special having the whole area to ourselves. Saw lots of wildlife from seals, kangaroos, eagles etc.The bedroom and bathroom were fantastic and watching the sunrise from the bed each morning was beautiful. All the facilities were great . We enjoyed a very special time and really did not want to go. We will return.
“Secluded, rugged and beautiful, with the comforts of home.”
Beautiful secluded beach... Forget your formal-wear, just bring some sensible shoes. So much to do or a great place to do nothing. Miles from civilisation, yet so civilised. If there is a chef amongst you and some good wine, it would get 6 stars.
“Outstanding Stay - Private, Relaxing, Spectacular Surrounds”
My partner and I stayed at Kangaroo Beach Lodges for 4 nights. It was an absolutely spectacular place. The lodge was clean, modern and fitted out with everything we needed (and more). I cannot say enough good things about the lodge. The design was top notch - the breeze through with the sheltered outdoor table and that deck overlooking the beach was superb. Sarah and Stuart (the owners of the homestead) were brilliant and made us feel so welcome. Nothing was too much trouble! Sarah even baked us bread and had fresh eggs for us on arrival (a handy thing because groceries are an hour drive into Kingscote). Great wildlife all around - roos, koala (at the homestead), dolphins, the resident groper down at the beach (not as scary as that sounds) and wild piglets at our gate! We were glad to have a 4-wheel drive vehicle for the trip and would do so again. Only a few wee ticks against this place... the master bedroom bed is actually two mattresses put together and has quite a lump in the middle - dividing you from your loved one. We loved that they supplied us with beach towels but could have used a second bath towel each because it was quite humid and things took a long time to dry. The beach was spectacularly beautiful and very private for the most part. Occasionally, however, there were visitors who turned up (eg. not people staying the lodges). Whilst their presence wasn't a problem, we'd hoped they'd be more respectful of this special space. Instead, after a day of fishing a group left the remains of 5 large tuna to rot on the rocks and another group decided to let their dog run free whilst they relaxed - all fine except they didn't bother pick up after their dog on the beach. All in all though this was a spectacular trip. So glad we did it and we'll definitely be back. Kangaroo Beach Lodges are perfect for relaxing. Plan to come and do nothing except soak in the gorgeous surrounds and you won't be disappointed.
“Best beach house in australia”
5 stars really doesnt do Kangaroo Beach Lodges justice. We have just returned from 7 magical days, where we swam in the beautiful, clear waters of Kangaroo Beach (safe for our 3 small children), fished off the rocks, snorkelled with the resident Groper, lounged on the beach, went marroning in the river, watched the sea eagles fly overhead, spotted wallabies and echidnas on the back roads of the farm, and star gazed at night whilst lying in bed. The hospitality shown by our hosts, Stuart and Sarah, was exceptional - the freshly made bread and provisions awaiting us on arrival was a lovely surprise. The lodges too are luxuriously outfitted without losing their beach house vibe. We will be back!
“A Mind Blowing Week!”
Absolutely fabulous accommodation! Didn't expect it to look like the photos so much but it looked exactly the same! Our minds were absolutely blown away from the moment we came through the gate! So modern but homely and comfortable! Furnishings were magnificent, comfortable beds, amazing kitchen and all the extras just 'made' the stay! The location was just mind blowing! Never seen views like it! Nothing getting in the way of the views and the other lodges are far enough away for complete privacy! Even the view from the shower was stunning! The whole living space was our favourite part of the lodge! Stuart & Sarah were happy to help with any enquiry we had! The only problem we could see was the pest control on the exterior of the lodge- a bit more care with cleaning cob-webs and controlling the spiders was needed! Will definitely recommend to friends- a holiday worth every cent! Kangaroo Beach Lodges the best place we have ever stayed!
My husband and I have just spent 3 days in the most amazing place on Earth! The lodge was beautiful and the view spectacular. Waking up in the middle of the night looking at the stars was stunning. Everything you could ask for was provided in the lodge,we had 3 glorious days,our only disappointment was that we didn't see the groper! I would recommend Kangaroo Beach Lodge highly.
“Reunion of friends”
The Kangaroo Beach Lodges is an unbelievable location with wonderful facilities, views, privacy and absolute comfort. The house was great value when shared by 3-4 couples - absolutely perfect for our stay. Being organised with food, drinks etc is a must as it is very isolated location and a long way to get anything that you run out of. The booking office and managers were so helpful and put us onto a caterer -Island Source, so the task of shopping and food preparation for 7 people was eliminated. All we had to do was toss, heat, present and BBQ brilliant fresh local produce including seafood, marron, crayfish, prawns, lamb and chicken. It was wonderful to be able to have that extra glass of champagne or two with dinner knowing that no-one had to drive. We danced and sang, taking us back to the times that we partied in the 70's without the fear of disturbing our neighbours. We really enjoyed the walking and photography down to the beach and around the property and then going further afield to visit some of the great Kangaroo Island sites. The choice of great wines and champagne was a little disappointing in Kingscote although we managed to over cater for our needs. We all had a great time together for the 5 days on the Island.
“A very special experience in a very special part of the world!”
From the very beginning we felt like we were in a very special and exclusive place. A private and secluded place set in a beautiful natural environment with animals, birds and fish everywhere. Drive slowly, walk quietly, look carefully and you will see them. The lodges are beautifully designed with absolutely stunning views - the photos do not do it justice! It is so nice and relaxing to be in a place that is designed so well and is so comfortable. The ocean breezes bring the sea air and wildlife noises inside making you feel part of this place immediately. And the lodges have everything - we felt like we were borrowing a wealthy friend's "weekender". Say hi to the Sea Eagle that cruises in every afternoon and you must try the shower with the door open!
“A wonderful place to relax at a truly stunning location on what”
It is the perfect place if you want to escape from the world for a few days. They are beautifully designed lodges with all the amenities that you require and the location above Kangaroo beach is breathtaking. It is also very well managed and Stuart and Sarah are always on hand if needed.
“No attention to detail was left undone.”
While there will be no 'riders' here, I would argue that a four wheel drive is necessary. Now to the review: in every respect our stay was excellent. Stuart and Sarah's wonderful preparation of the lodge (with freshly baked bread on top of all the other goodies) meant that we could settle in immediately and in comfort and style. The lodge housed our family of eight very easily and its luxuriousness was a very welcome surprise. Certainly my children (and grandchildren) plan a return visit. What an amazing location on an island that already almost defies description. It is so very beautiful. The kayaks were also very welcome and absolutely added to the joy of our stay. Thank you! There was nothing we liked least. Yes, it is fair drive to anywhere but the quiet and privacy compensated for that; of course the view and the lodge really left nothing to 'want'. Again, we all thank you. While we obviously have nice photos I can't seem to download them from my new toy, my iPad, but your own photos do do justice to the location. If you let us we may see you a again.
