Mel Jays in Kingscote is a family friendly home suitable for a large family or two smaller families, accommodating up to 8. Located in the heart of Kingscote, and within a 5 minute walk to the main street, shops, tidal pool and jetty, makes it the perfect home away from home.

Mel Jays provides a Playstation 3 in the kids playroom with a few games and a couple of controllers that you can use, or you are welcome to bring you own along.

There is a second TV in the main lounge room with a blu-ray player along with a selection of DVD's and plenty of books for a bit of peace and quiet. There are toys for the kids and several board games for some family entertainment.

With such great fishing spots around the area a fish cleaning station has been provided in the back yard. You can cook your catch on the BBQ or just enjoy a bottle of local wine and snack under the pergola while the kids enjoy playing on the swings in the backyard. There is a driveway on either side of the house allowing parking for two vehicles and enough room for your boat and trailer.

A good sized kitchen and dining table provides you the option of preparing your own meals at home, heading out for take away or going out for a meal.

Mel Jays has been set up to be a comfortable place to stay while you enjoy exploring the island and all it has to offer, while also giving you the option of spending time relaxing at the house or strolling around Kingscote.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs Attention! Although, on the whole, we had a very enjoyable stay on Kangaroo Island, Mel Jays is in need of some TLC. Disappointed to see that the sofas which were 'being changed at Easter this year', were in fact still in the house. Sofas in the main lounge room were also not the best (comfort wise!). Although the house was mostly in very good and clean order, i.e. kitchen/toilets/linen, some attention needs to be paid to vacuuming the walls and/or ceilings, especially in the toilet room. We thought that Mel Jays has much potential, but does need some money spent on it to improve its facilities. Also, the house had a VERY strong smell of fish when we arrived, like someone had been cleaning indoors! Oh, and some more clothes pegs would be of GREAT help.
