Situated on a 520 acre working farm, this gorgeous studio flat is attached to the main house, which sleeps 6, but completely separate. Minor cooking facilities in our compact but well equipped kitchen, Queen bed with views toward Snelling Beach and Althorpe Islands. Expansive lawn area, pets by prior arrangement. Enjoy lying in bed, watching sheep or cattle graze, or koalas, wallabies, kangaroos playing on the lawn at night. Beautiful birds. Great location from which to explore Kangaroo Island.

Sharon's place was exactly as described , cosy as can be , and the view is stunning. The location also was handy for central to all site seeing. We loved it !

We enjoyed a fantastic stay during our time on KI. Sharon's instructions made finding the place easy enough, and we enjoyed waking up each morning to a sunrise and ocean views visible through the window. We also loved the distance from light pollution and the city- we got some fantastic night skies during our stay, as well as photos of wedge tailed eagles, kangaroos and wallabies.

Sharons place is without doubt, the best accommodation with a view that i have ever stayed at. We found we didn't want to leave to see more of the island, because of the view. And to watch it change throughout the day as the light changed was so surreal. And it is so peaceful and quiet. Sharon left a nice bottle of wine to welcome us and a nice card. We felt a bit pampered. There were heaps of kangaroos around to keep us company. Only 2 minute drive to Snelling beach, a gorgeous little beach with pristine clear water to swim in. (Wish i was into fishing as I'm sure its alive with them.) It was pretty central for trips to the sites too. If you want a peaceful place away from the masses, this is it. Lie in bed and stare into the blue ocean.

We spent 3 days in Sharon's studio. We didn't have the plesure to meet Sharon, but she gave us all the information we needed and we found a bottle of wine in the appartement. The location is wonderfull with a beautiful view of Snelling Beach and is easy to find, but a little bit far from the most important attractions and the last part of the road is unsealed. Moreover, the house is completly sourrounded by nature and during the night you can find koalas and kangaroos in the garden. The studio is like the pictures, but older and the bed unconfortable. It was a shame to find worms and roachs in the house, in particular in the bathroom.

Response from Sharon:
Salvatore, I'm so sorry you found our property too far from the important attractions - we like to think that Snelling Beach is an attraction in itself, given that it is listed as one of Australia's best 101 beaches. Yes, the road to the house is unsealed, clearly depicted in my cover image, and advised by myself when giving directions. Which is why I advised you that your wish to ride a scooter wouldn't be suitable - we are a large island, described as a rural community. I'm dreadfully sorry to hear that you encountered insects in the bathroom. Unfortunately, during your stay, we experienced unseasonal heavy rains, which disturbed insects and brought them indoors. As we are on a farm, it is difficult for me to control this, but I know the flat was clean when you arrived. I also advise on the site that we live close by, but unobtrusive hosts, which is why I wasn't immediately on hand for you. But if you had any concerns, you only needed to contact either me or our caretakers. Many guests prefer to relax privately. I hope you have a very happy and rewarding 2017, safe travels :))

Sharon was helpful from the start. She provided a detailed email about Kangaroo Island (KI) and how to get to the house. She helped with planning our trip and provided useful tips on where to stay in the island for the one night we were not staying with her and gave us some amazing produce from her farm. The Studio his nice and cosy. The view is breathtaking! Having breakfast and dinner with this amazing view is priceless. The wallabies, kangaroos and possum also enjoy the view and come at night to eat the last remaining green shoots. You can see them nice and close. Although at first Snelling beach seemed to be in the middle of nowhere actually it is well located to explore the west side of KI, including Flinders Chase National Park. You don't actually need a 4 wheel drive to drive around the island our VW Golf did well, but if you can bring a 4 wheel drive or at least a vehicle with high clearance you will have a lot of fun driving through the gravel roads of KI. Please be careful. One last thing if you are more than two rent the full house is definitely worth it. Thanks Sharon for sharing this amazing place.

Absolutely amazed by the scenery and beauty of the location. We had a beautiful view of Snelling Beach and were lucky enough to see a koala and a few kangaroos in our front lawn- not something we get to see in the city! The drive down to the beach took only approx. 2 mins and we fell in love with the crystal clear waters. The studio itself was spacious and tidy, and we felt right at home. Sharon was very helpful, particularly with the directions, as our navigator was of no use. We are very grateful to Sharon for all her help and for ensuring we had a comfortable stay.
