A delightful stone and timber cottage craftsman-built in 1992 and nestled in coastal mallee 200m from the beach. After a hard days touring or fishing sit on the secluded deck and watch the birds, feed the possums and wallabies that come most nights, or just relax with a glass of Island wine.

The cottage is situated on the south coast of Kangaroo Island, in the Vivonne Bay township, only a two minute walk to the beach. The pristine beach is ideal for fishing, surfing, or beach-walking. Look for Leafy Sea Dragons as you go, and watch for whales, dolphins and seals.

In fact almost all attractions on the island are within an hour's drive. A good central location.
