Secluded Kangaroo Island accommodation
Generations of one South Australian family has enjoyed many holidays on Kangaroo Island.
Our accommodation gives you the opportunity to get out of the hustle and bustle, soak up the food and wine or just enjoy the serenity of this tranquil island.
We have had great holidays at our Kangaroo Island accommodation over the years. Here’s what some of our guests have had to say:
Our Kangaroo Island Accommodation
Our Kangaroo Island accommodation offers two secluded properties, each within a few paces of Brown’s Beach. The three bedroom Beach House provides comfortable holiday accommodation for six whilst Georgina’s Place with its open plan layout is ideal for a couple, or two adults and up to two children.
At both properties you will arrive with the beds made and house prepared, all linen and towels are provided, so you could even start with a nap to relax straight into your holiday! Or maybe you’ll want to walk straight out the door and onto the beach.
From our beach accommodation you can walk along Brown’s Beach as far as the point 2.5 kms away or you can continue on for further adventure. Swim, lounge on the sand, snorkel, try your hand at fishing…or just sit and read with the gentle sounds of the beach in the background.
Both the Beach House and Georgina’s Place have BBQs and covered outdoor dining facilities so breakfast, lunch and dinner can all be taken outside surrounded by the silence of the native bush setting, with views down to the beach.
We want your stay to be hassle free so we provide a range of basic groceries in the house so you don’t have to dash to the ‘local store’ in Penneshaw (15kms away) for the salt, oil, or flour…..

Our family connections to Kangaroo Island began in the 1920s when our grandfather used to stay with friends in what used to be the Governor’s property on Rocky Point at Eastern Cove.
Things To Do
Our Kangaroo Island accommodation is ideally located for holiday activities to suit everyone.
Explore the pristine wilderness and rugged beauty of the Island and get back to nature. Or get up close to some of Australia’s native and endangered wildlife.
For the foodies amongst you, visit the farm gates and cellar doors of the fine food and wine producers on the Island. Or for those who prefer things a bit slower, find your little slice of paradise in a secluded cove and just kick back and relax in the unspoiled tranquility of the place.
How To Get There
Starting off your holiday and getting to your Kangaroo Island accommodation is an adventure in itself. You have the option of travelling by air or sea to kick off your stay, but rest assured, once on the Island you are a world away. Our holiday accommodation is a short drive from the ferry at Penneshaw or the airport at Kingscote. The main roads on the island are sealed but care needs to be taken once onto the unsealed roads as they can be dangerous if attempted at speed.
Our secluded holiday accommodation on Kangaroo Island is located within metres of Brown’s Beach and is accessed from a track off Hog Bay Road. Detailed directions for driving to the properties are provided upon booking.

Holiday accommodation on Kangaroo Island really does cater for all. The Island itself is big enough to offer a stunning range of scenery, activities and wildlife habitats to suit most tastes. But it is small enough to allow visitors to get around and visit the areas...
Summer on Kangaroo Island is sublime. The Island has a mediterranean climate which is warm but rarely uncomfortable. And with uncrowded beaches, great food and drink and plenty to do (or not do!) for all the family its an ideal holiday destination.
The Coopers Kangaroo Island Cup is a popular race meeting on the South Australian calendar. The Cygnet River Racecourse at Kingscote comes alive with great country racing on Thursday 18th and Saturday 20th February. And lots of other events and entertainment...
