Table Tennis table, undercover & off-street parking, beach toys / balls, esky to use during your stay, 2 x BBQ’s, various dining settings in the gardens, courtyard, on the veranda etc. – more than 34 outdoor dining seats, so you’ll find the perfect spot.

Plenty of parking for everyone.
A fantastic set of consumables are included for your convenience, such as toilet paper, tissues, paper towel, tea/coffee/sugar/a few coffee pods, food wraps, pantry basics such as pepper/salt/oil/seasonings, washing detergents, soap, dishwasher tablets, handwash etc. This will certainly be enough to get you started, probably enough for your whole stay, but if you need more consumables, the supermarket is nearby.
Professionally laundered, including white hotel-quality bed linen, tea towels, lots of soft bath towels, beach towels & bathrobes.
We hope you really love how clean the property is presented for you - we don't cut corners! 'Normal' cleaning between stays (no daily servicing) is naturally included, so there's certainly no need to clean wet areas, floors or make beds etc. on your departure. We do just ask that it's treated respectfully, left neat & tidy with items put back where they were found, spills wiped up, rubbish in bins, bbq left clean etc. Please do enjoy a little break from housework, but it certainly can't be left 'filthy', 'trashed' or damaged though, so kindly note that damage & non-standard cleaning may incur an additional charge.
**Please keep in mind that this is Holiday-Accommodation & we don't allow for Function Level Cleaning**
Children are very warmly welcomed & families love it here! There’s no need to compromise on quality or convenience just because you're travelling with your family; just let us know if you're bringing children &we'll supply quality baby items (stroller, cot, highchair), toys, beach toys etc. Please just note that whilst this luxury property is 'child friendly' & we’re really particular about safety, like most properties it's certainly not 'child proof', so responsible supervision by caring adults is essential to ensure the property isn't damaged & importantly, for the safety of your precious children i.e. yard not fully fenced, stairs, internal balcony, sharp items in the kitchen, some breakable items, rodent baits used on the property etc.
No charge for up to 2 extra infants who have not yet turned 1 at the time of check out (children 1 & over are charged the normal rate), however maximum guests on the properties is 24 including infants.
If you wish to book all 3 adjacent cottages for your group on the same check in/out dates, this is the listing for you! Base tariff includes up to 16 guests (inc. children), however please advise of correct guest numbers when enquiring or booking so we can prepare for your stay. There are 14 beds in total (4 Kings, 4 Queens, 3 Singles, 1 Trundle Bed (for a child), 2 King Singles), sleeping up to 22 guests - an extra fee applies for 16+ guests. An extra 2 guests can be accommodated by arrangement using either a sofa bed, rollaway bed or 'flip out' mattress (great for kids).
No charge for up to 2 infants (under 1 yr old at check out), however max guests on the property including children/infants must not exceed 24 at any time.
Just a few minutes lazy stroll to the water’s edge (160 metres to water to be precise), a picturesque walking track nearby is ideal for walking or bike riding right into the heart of Kingscote (approx 2.4 klms).
Just 2 minutes to Kingcote's main street. There are so many pretty places on the island, but for exploring from a central location & still being so close to amenities such as groceries, fuel, cafés, health care etc, we think it's absolutely perfect & why we chose this location. Many of the stunning but remote places on the island don't have these amenities nearby & wildlife is also quite prolific at night-time, so best to avoid driving outside of the towns after dark.
The properties are a such lovely space to celebrate a special occasion with loved ones! Importantly parties or small weddings etc. require prior approval & the max number of guests at the property must not exceed those actually booked in as guests (i.e. you can't have people attending that aren't actually staying at the accommodation sorry).
Function level cleaning is not included i.e. must still be left in good condition, just like you would normally leave a holiday rental. Strictly NO big wild parties, bucks/hens/schoolies groups.
We're friendly, helpful & passionate about beautiful KI. If you have any questions at all, including suggested itineraries, feel free to contact us, it's amazing how much there is to actually do on the Island beyond the popular tourist spots. It's our pleasure to help make your stay wonderful!
In general, bookings are non-refundable, so travel insurance is suggested. However, if there is a widespread lockdown in KI or South Australia which prevents you from visiting, you would receive either a FULL CREDIT to use within 3 years towards a future stay, or if you prefer, a 50% REFUND. Importantly, note that 20 Dec-18 Jan & Public Holiday periods are excluded for re-bookings or using credits & exclude any Booking booking fees. We're delighted to welcome interstate visitors again from 1/3/22, however there is the known risk that plans may likely be interrupted by Covid restrictions. As such, if you or any of your group are impacted by lockdowns interstate / restrictions on entering SA, or other genuine Covid-related reasons, we're happy to promptly re-advertise your dates & then refund any of your travel dates that are booked by another guest (less any booking/credit card fees etc).
-If there are government-imposed restrictions on the # of guests per property, we would refund you for guest numbers in excess of the limit (i.e. if you have booked for 12 but only 10 are permitted, your booking would be adjusted to reflect the tariff for 10 guests), OR you may re-book to stay for the same number of nights/guests/tariff during the 'lower season' (28 April-20 Sept & 1-24 November, excluding Public & School Hols), within 3 yrs.
We do not do isolation/quarantine or illness recovery stays.
Sometimes holidays don't go as planned & something may arise which prevents travel or impacts your stay, such as illness, missed or cancelled transport or weather events. As such, Travel Insurance is highly recommended.
