About this listing

A historic, gorgeous cabin in the heart of the township. loft bedroom with comfy queen bed, downstairs kitchen and lounge, shower and toilet. Cosy and quaint perfect for a short stay and adjacent to all restaurants and town facilities.

The space

The space is perfect for couples on holiday or workers/visitors needing a base home-away-from-home. There are stairs to the bedroom - take these slow and carefully! Its a landmark of the township and part of the history of Kangaroo Island. We've thought of most everything you need to be comfy and hope you enjoy your stay.

Guest access

You have access to the whole house - little as it is! Bazza the owner lives in a separate house adjacent and far away enough not to disturb you unless you want to wander over for a chat. He's lived here longer than me and knows a great deal about the Island's history - he's also good for a dad joke or 10! Little dog Amy is up for a pat or a little tidbit if you feel so inclined - or you can play "sock" with her.

Interaction with guests

I live not far away in the next block of the township - a short walk or quick drive if needed and absolutely happy to help with anything you need.

Other things to note

Kangaroo Island can be tricky - there are some very unique things about our island home - but don't be afraid to ask away!

The hot water service wasn't great, only luke warm showers, not cold but not hot, and the building was a bit draughty. Everything was excellent, house was clean, key was in the door on arrival, full kitchen, and dishes. I really enjoyed how small it was but how much they could fit in had a ball. The location is probably the best thing, within walking distance of anything in Kingscote worth walking to. If you're staying in summer ignore the first sentence of this review, this place would be great.

The Dolls House is so cute! We stayed there for 2 nights, it is centrally located only 1 street back from the main town centre and a short walk to the water. The house itself is cozy, but has everything you need. And was nice and warm when we arrived. Great place to stay when visiting Kangaroo Island.

Cathie ensured that access was super easy, and she was readily available by text message. She completely respected our privacy, the doll house was a perfect base for our Kangaroo Island explorations. I loved reading about the history of the building, and meeting the locals.

The Dolls House was adorable! Cute, cosy and quaint. It had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. Great location for walking around Kingscote, and perfect for venturing out to see the rest of the island. A great stay. We'd certainly recommend this place for couples, and we will definitely be back!

I've lived on this beautiful island for over 25 years and love it! Quiet in winter and beach, sun, surf lifestlye through summer. I work, live and play here and have just set up this gorgeous little self-contained house to share with others to enjoy and for people who visit for work and professional reasons.
I've used Airbnb myself and love the casual, friendly and relaxed way of booking accommodation and meeting new people.
