Baudin House is a jewel. Relaxing and well appointed with comfortable furniture and all modern conveniences. The home offers floor to ceiling windows which showcase the brilliant water of Hog Bay. The surrounding decks allow guests to relax and offers views in every direction. The beach is just steps away and walking distance along the inner harbor area to the town. The beach has a population of little blue penguins which nest nearby.
Our large, four generation family was so excited for our trip to Kangaroo Island. We booked a week at the Baudin House which overlooks Hog Bay. Baudin House sits in a delightful location on the hill with stunning views of the bay and the distant shore of Cape Jervis. Only a few minutes to the ferry and the friendly town of Penneshaw which has a Post, well stocked grocery, fueling station and several other shops and cafes.
Betty and Michael are the gracious, experienced owners of Baudin House who have planned for their guests comfort and needs. From board games to extra blankets your comfort is key. The kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans, and top of the line appliances.
We particularly enjoyed the meticulously tended lawn and garden areas which offered a secure area for our grandchildren to run and play. The stairs have secure handrails and the interior floors are tile except in the bedrooms which have wall to wall carpet. Betty and Michael set their guests at ease and we all enjoyed exchanging stories and receiving advice about local activities. Booking the Baudin House through their site was uncomplicated and our bank processed the currency exchange. We appreciated the friendly emails from Betty prior to arrival. Our time at Baudin House and Kangaroo Island are treasured memories.
Betty and Michael were there to welcome us with a roaring fire and some very sound advice on the best places to visit on the island.
The house was squeaky clean, warm and cosy with absolutely everything you need for a comfortable stay. The view out to the water is beautiful and the location is excellent and convenient for the ferry terminal and for shops and food. (Isola pizza is a great choice for dinner too!).
We just couldn't fault it!
Stayed here July 2016. Owners are very nice and helpful and were very understanding when I cancelled and then uncancelled due to sickness.
House itself is really nice and the view from the balcony and sound of the sea is wonderful.
We got usage of the fire place as we came in winter and this is a really nice addition.
Even had a few games of ping pong in the garage.
Lovely little area. Penneshaw pub is delicious. And IGA is just a few minutes around the corner if you need supplies.
Overall a very enjoyable and comfortable stay.
Baudin House is a fantastic house with an enclosed maniqured backyard perfect for kids. The house is spacious, clean and modern with modern appliances with a great deck to take in the beautiful views of investigator strait. Only a short walk to the beach. Definitely stay again!
