Local Attractions

The north coast is more sheltered than the south and provides ample opportunities for water-based activities like swimming, surfing, snorkelling, diving, beach-walking and fishing in the local marine parks. Still Windy is also the perfect base for exploring the iconic Flinders Chase National Park and the Seal Bay Conservation Park.

If Still Windy is booked out for your dates, or you would like to split your stay between the west and east ends of the island, we recommend Pelican Cottage near American River.


Still Windy is situated on a 100 Ha bush block with large stands of remnant vegetation including sugar gum woodlands and yacca grasslands. White Tree Creek meanders through the middle of the property and provides a delightful guide to follow for bush walks or secluded picnics.

Native wildlife abounds on the property and it is common to see kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, wedge-tailed eagles and goannas.

The more dedicated nature lover may also see stone curlews, pygmy possums, boobook owls and glossy-black cockatoos. In Spring time there are abundant wildflowers and native orchids throughout the valley.

There are at least two nesting Glossy-black cockatoos on the property and we have an ongoing re-vegetation program designed to provide shelter and forage trees for these critically endangered birds.

At nearby Snelling Beach you may see dolphins, sea eagles, hooded plovers and the occasional fur seal.

If you'd like to help us keep track of local rainfall you can read the rain gauge and enter it into the Visitor book.


Dogs are very welcome at Still Windy, both outside and inside the house, and there are a few things for guests to note.

We charge an extra $25 per stay for guests bringing dogs.

The house and the property are not fenced in a way that will prevent dogs from running away or travelling onto other properties and our neighbours with chickens or livestock will not appreciate a visit from an unknown dog.

It is therefore the responsibility of the guest to ensure the safety and well being of their dog at all times and for the dog to always be under effective control.

Dogs must be left outside if guests leave the property without them and a shaded enclosure is provided which may be easily moved around to a suitable location.

Guests are welcome to walk their dogs anywhere within the property boundaries but need to be aware they may encounter snakes or large kangaroos. Kangaroo Island Council requires dogs to be on leads at all times when on the beach.

When inside the house dogs must remain at floor level at all times. Please bring dog bedding but note that bowls for food and water are supplied.

We appreciate your cooperation and welcome you and your best friend to Still Windy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect tranquil place for KI We are still overwhelmed from this very comfortable and extraordinary designed house, located in a beautiful surrounding with stunning views towards Snelling Beach. We spent hours on the terrace just watching landscape and animals. We enjoyed the luxurious and warm atmosphere of this house and appreciated very much the owners ecological responsibility. The location is perfect on KI: remote and quiet but also well located for all visits on KI. After 4 days we were really sad that we had to leave. We felt so well at this wonderful place. We recommend Still Windy to all those, who are looking for a beautiful and tranquil place in a most wonderful area of KI. Thank you R. + D. for your great hospitality

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible, TREAT YOURSELF WOW, speechless. Honestly I have never stayed somewhere that is so beautiful, so removed from the day to day hustle and bustle but still feels like home. If you need to get away, this is the place for you. Incredible surroundings, beautifully set out accommodation with all the amenities of home and then some. Short drives from all the tourist hot spots but far enough away to feel like you're on the edge of the world. Treat yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a piece of heaven! We've had a wonderful time on Kanagaroo Island and this house was the perfect base for all the fun. Very well equiped, quite and beautiful location, wildlife interaction guranteed. Nothing that we would asked more off and it was hard to leave such a piece of heaven eventually.
