Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a lovely stay at Rita's house on Kangaroo Island. The place is huge and the view is just amazing. It wasn't very clean when we arrived, but Pip was very forthcoming in finding a compensation. You will find all basic kitchen equipment you need.
    All in all a great place to stay to discover the island, also because it is only a few minutes away from the ferry.
    We didn't meet Pip but everything could be sorted out via email without any problems.
    Hope we'll be back!

  • The house is in a perfect location, we had a marvellous time. We recommend visiting Kangaroo Island and staying at this house.

    We found the house clean and well equipped and although we didn´t meet Pip, we got excellent recommendations of places to visit and the whole transaction went smoothly.

    Very happy that we stayed here.

  • Awesome location perched on the crest of the bluffs above the sea with spectacular ocean views. The house is large and spacious plus is well fitted out with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The location was perfect for our family of four with two kids aged 10 and 6. The location is within easy walking distance to all the amenities of Penneshaw and is a convenient base point for explorations further into Kangaroo Island. It is also very convenient to the KI ferry service which allowed us to easily catch an early sailing on departure. We recommend anyone staying at this property to book their ferry passage as early as possible to get the best sailing times and not get caught like we did to a 5:30AM sailing!

  • Pip's place was a dream to stay in! Amazing views all around, I look forward to waking up every morning! Cozy place that my family and I enjoyed very much! Very close to the ferry, walking distance to the supermarket and eateries. Highly recommend staying with Pip!

    Thanks, Pip! If we're ever in KI again, I will not hesitate to book your place again! We definitely enjoyed our stay on the island!

  • WOW!
    What a place. Sea views from every room. Wood fire and so close to the shops and ferry yet not in sight or earshot of anything but amazing views. We could of spent a month at Pip's place.
    Thank you so much. Highly recommended!
    Kind regards Steve and family.
