Reviewed 5 weeks ago for a stay in April 2018

Our party of 5 adults stayed for 4 nights after completing the Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail and the comforts of The Deck were much appreciated. We had booked for 3 nights but due to inclement weather the Sealink Ferry was cancelled. We contacted Rosie who very generously allowed us to stay an extra night WITHOUT CHARGE!! Thank you so much...

Management response:

Dear Deb, Thank you for your post. We were very happy under the circumstances to offer the extra night. So happy you enjoyed the comforts of The Deck after your walk. Regards, Rosie and Mike

There is wild life everywhere including wallabies, parrots, pelicans and regular visits from a family of magpies. Although the internals of the house are a little tired and well worn (kitchen...

Management response:

Thank you for your comments. We are so glad you loved The Deck. We are interested in your comments regarding the kitchen and lounge as the cooktop, oven and fridge and leather lounges are quite new. However, we agree we need a new floor rug in the sitting room and are considering updating the kitchen cupboards. Regards, Mike and Rosie...
