A beautifully handcrafted home, made from locally sourced sandstone and reclaimed wood. This house sits amongst 16 acres of private she-oak forest which overlooks beautiful Pelican Lagoon. Large, open plan, split level home which spills out onto spacious terraces and private balcony’s all with superb views over the lagoon. The rooms are minimally furnished, with beautifully crafted handmade reclaimed wood furniture offset with bright ethnic fabrics and rugs sourced from around the world.
“We had the best time. The stone, wood, concrete floors & quirky features are spot on. We loved all the different spots to sit & look at the views but also different areas of the home. Of course the fire was awesome too! The location is one of the best. It’s central for touring the island & close to great beaches. American River is 5 minutes away with a couple of food options. Only a short drive to the ferry too. The house itself is perched nicely in the scrub, with absolutely amazing views over Pelican Lagoon, out to Eastern Cove & the mainland in the distance. We watched the daily patterns of birds flying over & gazed at the stars from the deck. It was so still one night we could hear dolphins cruising by in the darkness, & could hear the waves from Pennington Bay as the swell filled in. Thanks for a great stay & the easy communication Aara!”
Top Deck is a fully self contained holiday home just metres from the beach, boasting a "Top Deck" with views of the bay. A great base from which to explore beautiful Kangaroo Island.
“Amazing house close to the Kingscote township. The house is beautiful and very clean standard. Julie is a lovely host, we especially liked the small touches like the Nespresso coffee machine with provided pods and having the basic cooking essentials so we could cook. We came during covid restrictions so having this option was very handy. We would certainly stay here again and look forward to visiting in the warmer months. Thankyou Julie.”
Take a deep breath, relax. Seclusion and comfort in a pristine environment.
“10/10! What a special place in this world. Thick bushland to the back of the property and a beautiful coast to the front - it was just magnificent. The sense of freedom and adventure our three year old had, exploring the pathways to the beach, collecting wood, exploring the beach was very special. We were so lucky to have a wallaby visit each morning and night too, she added to the experience! Beds were super comfy and the combustion heater also added to our stay. We just loved Bens house so much, designed to take in the full view of the coast - I’ve never enjoyed cooking or even cleaning a kitchen more! We chose to eat in each night as we couldn’t imagine a better place to be. Thanks again Ben!”
