The space

The Bluff at Penneshaw boasts one of the best views in town. Sitting on a promontory at the western edge of town you can watch the sun rise over the mainland and see it set over Nepean Bay. It has 200 degree ocean views and whilst close to the centre of town is located amidst a private bush garden. A variety of native birds visit the garden and Little Penguins can often be heard calling at night. The pine log house is surrounded by decking from which to enjoy the view on summer days. In winter, you can retreat from the elements enjoying the warmth from the pot belly stove whilst enjoying the view through the expansive windows of the main living area.
The house is supplied with pure Kangaroo Island rainwater.
The Bluff at Penneshaw is a family holiday home. The three bedrooms accommodate 6 people comprising a queen size bed in the main bedroom, a double bed in the second bedroom and a single bed and trundle in the third. The house is wheelchair accessible and a bed stick, a shower chair, movable bed side table and toilet handrail are all available if required.

Very easy to get to! The ferry to Kangaroo Island departs just two hours from Adelaide at Cape Jervis (can be reached by coach or car).

The ferry goes direct to Penneshaw and takes approximately 45 minutes. You can take your car on the ferry if you like or you can leave it at the secure car park at Cape Jervis.

The Bluff is just a 500m walk from the ferry jetty.

Jeannie's place in Kangeroo Island, perched atop a cliff overlooking the Australian mainland, is one of the most amazing places I've stayed in. Even though it is a two minute drive from the ferry in Penneshaw, it feels like a secluded hideaway at one of the furthest corners of the world. Kangeroo Island is a fantastic place to visit for its scenic hikes, endemic wildlife, great food and austere beauty, and staying at Jeannie's place is a good base from which to explore it all. The place is large and perfect for families, and has an authentic, rustic feel to it. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for great value for money and seclusion.

Response from Jeannie:
I'm sorry about the dust, but it is very difficult with unsealed roads and being in the country to control. Thank you for your excellent review, I really appreciate it.

Perfect location! Very peaceful and beautiful sea views, but still a central location close to the services in the village. Cosy and a nice place, some minor problems with the cleanliness. Very flexible host, even a cot and a high chair were provided.

The location is fantastic, facing the ocean on the bluff; quiet but also close to the shops & restaurants/cafes.

Perfect location, beautiful views from every corner of the house. Few kangaroos paid us a visit at night. House is well furnished, well located and the host is very friendly and easy to communicate to. We loved our stay, and would stay again in future.

We have just left Kangaroo Island and Jeannies house at Penneshaw was wonderful Her home was like stepping back to our childhood era but with all necessities provided You wake up to views of the Ocean and rolling hills. In the front garden a wallaby eats the wild flowers while one hundred metres off shore a pod of dolphins play All you have to do is watch from your bed or sit on the verandah with your coffee No hesitation in saying it is truly energising Easy to find just off the ferry and access to the home was very easy We will be recommending it to family and friends Max
