Owning our own holiday accommodation we are pretty fussy when it comes to booking holidays. After searching far and wide for quality and affordable accommodation on K.I. we settled on the Garden Chalet. We are so glad we got it right! Modern, spacious and very clean. It was better than home. We were warm and cosy through some very stormy...

A lovely, comfortable and homely cottage very close to the beach. The cottage is very clean and well equipped. The cottage would comfortably accommodate 8 people- perfect for two families to share. Frank, the owner is very friendly and has a wealth of knowledge about attractions on the Island. We had a great holiday- thanks very much Frank.

We stayed 4 nites in the garden villa in December and it truly was a home away from home. Frank, the friendly owner was an absolute pleasure to deal with. He was there to welcome us and he had very kindly put a Christmas tree in the villa to give it a festive and homely feel. He also led us...

We stayed at the Island Chalet cottage for three nights. We felt the location (Kingscote area) and the cottage were a perfect base for exploring the island which is easy to get around, but bigger than we expected. We met Frank and his wife who are super nice. Our cottage was perfectly appointed with every amenity. We had only two...

Well it was a pleasure to meet you both and thank you so much for choosing our Island Chalet. Normally we would be at the cottage to greet you, but on this occasion, with the late ferry and the delay caused by the bushfire, it must have been close to midnight when you arrived. We were tucked up in bed...
