The hand crafted, 3-bedroom stone cottage is full of warmth, colour and character. This property was inspired by and constructed from recycled silos on Kangaroo Island. It is often referred to as the "Round House". The property has 2 full bedrooms one double, one with twin beds and a spare very small room with bunk beds. There is one central bathroom with a shower, toilet and washing machine. The house has a fully equipped kitchen with open plan to living and dining areas. All rooms are in separate round "pods" which are adjoined by a series of stone courtyards. This stone cottage offers a special experience and very fun accommodation solution for families. Please note that this is a very untraditional house layout and you walk outdoors in-between rooms.
This house does not have air-conditioning or central heating. There are floor fans and plug in electric heaters in each room.
