How Fun! We stayed here our last night before leaving Kangaroo Island. It is clean, quiet, and HUGE (5 bedrooms). There is no wifi or television, but we loved playing the games that were provided. We drove the road in twice-once to check in and do the lighthouse tour and then once to go into town for dinner and the...

We stayed one night at Thomas Cottage at Cape Willioughby and found it to be very comfortable with lots of character. The cottages were super clean and well equipped. The kitchen was so well set up that we were able to make homemade pizzas and enjoy them over a ruthless family game of scrabble that was among the board games...

We stayed for a week and made day trips to the scenic spots in the rest of Kangaroo Island. The cottage was spacious, scrupulously clean and comfortable but be prepared to bring your own electronic entertainment as there is not even a tv set. It was such a delight to wake up to the chattering of the small birds that...

Accomodation very clean and comfortable and the location is amazing. Could have stayed longer. Would be great for a couple of families to stay together...no TV, but plenty of board games..taught kids to play Monopoly and Rummy. Best aspect of this holiday was the old world charm and history of the place.

Stayed at Seymour Lodge. As per my other reviews with other KI lighthouse stay, perfect - cannot fault the amenities etc. The weather (wind storm/low temp) cleared up on the day we left KI! :( We stayed only 1 night and regretted it, as we did not get to explore much of this part of the region. We did explore...

Cape Willoughby Lighthouse took our breath away: from the sunset on our arrival to the sunrise just before we left, and the immaculate cottage & fantastic wildlife in between, every bit of our stay was magical - just a shame we only stayed one night!

We had a wonderful Christmas with my family of 9. My husband and I who had loved Cape Borda in 2011 wanted our family to share the experience. We had 7 adults and a 7 and 5 year old who loved it all. Christmas was amazing with gorgeous views of the ocean as the children blew bubbles and we loved...

We recently had my parents coming from the UK and wanted to do a trip. We chose Kangaroo Island and then went looking for somewhere to stay. We needed something to please everyone - from Grannie and Grandad, to us, to our 6 and 8 yr old girls. The Lighthouse Keeper's Cottage was perfect. My youngest woke up early every...

Our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 children aged 13,11 and 9) stayed in Thomas Cottage over the New Years break. The cottage was just lovely. While it is old fashioned, it is heritage accommodation and we would have been disappointed if it had been modernised too much (although it was nice to have a modern bathroom!). The cottage...

(NOTE: Our stay was in December 2009) Our family oved our stay in the Light Keeper's cottage to celebrate Christmas 2009. It was quite unusul to enjoy comfortable accommodation right in the middle of a national park, with so many interesting sites right outside the door. The walks were lovely and the seals a treat so close by. Highly recommend.

“Check road conditions before traveling. I had read many reviews saying that KI was easy without a 4-wheel drive, but we had a minivan and the recent storms made several of the unsealed roads tough. Locals were always helpful in sharing information.”
