Me an my family loved the house. Beautiful setting, great views. The house is comfy, well equipped and nicely decorated.
It was a short drive from the ferry and easy to find as well, thanks to Sally's instructions.
The house is exactly as shown on the pictures and we couldn't have asked for more.
From here, we drove up to Stokes Bay, which took about an hour. The way back home, from Flinders Chase, was about an hour and a half.
The last morning, we decided to leave super early to be able to see the suns rise as we drove past Pelican Lagoon on our way to Pennington Bay - which is just around the corner. This beach is beautiful and we were lucky enough to spot Dolphins catching some waves which was truly magical.
Kestrel Downs is a great base to explore the beautiful island and I would definitely recommend staying here.
Overlooking beautiful pelican lagoon. This well equipped Home is secluded and peaceful but only 20km from the Penneshaw ferry. The Wallabies joined us in the evening and Kangaroos in the Morning
Only 22 km from the ferry Kestrel Downs is located on a small hill where you have a priviledge overview of Pelican Lagoon while watching many birds and curious kangaroos! Sleeping was quite comfortable and calm. Kestrel Downs has clean and spacious rooms with everything you need to feel like at home. Sally gave us an interesting and helpful list of her favourite things to discover on Kangaroo Island. She was fantastic at providing all necessary informations for an interesting and comfortable stay. We would definitely recommend Kestrel Downs to anyone.
We have used this accommodation on a number of occasions over a number of years and love its peace and tranquility. The house is always clean and ready and through the various seasons there is always something to enjoy like a cosy fire in winter or a warm night sitting on the verandah watching the changing light and the animals moving around. There is plenty on offer around the island but it is also a wonderful relaxing home to enjoy.
We just loved this place. Three nights was not enough. Beautiful views, comfort and attention to detail put it amongst the best places we have stayed.
We walked nearby Pennington Bay, ate delicious seaford at American River and explored the island by day. At night we enjoyed watching the wild life at the bird bath while sipping wine on the veranda and used the excellent cooking facilities to prepare our evening meal. Comfy beds and wonderful stars topped off a great stay.
