Description

Treat yourself to the luxury of solitude, a warm welcome and nature’s abundance at Ratcliff Cottage, Pelican Lagoon. Your beautifully restored limestone cottage is settled lightly on the landscape, with absolute water frontage and surrounded by 100 acres of limestone countryside. Ratcliff Cottage offers you a breathtaking vista begging to be discovered, and gentle waves lapping the shore just metres from your front door. Imagine waking up to kangaroos and dolphins each morning, dawn’s light shimmering upon Pelican Lagoon The expansive terrace offers an idyllic location for eating, reading, entertaining and relaxing.

After you spend a day on KI exploring soaring cliffs, dense bushland, towering sand dunes, wetlands and arcs of bone white beach, kick back on the terrace and fire up the BBQ. It’s the sunset golden hour, time to pour yourself a glass of Kangaroo Island wine, indulge in some fresh shucked oysters from American River and sizzle up some King George Whiting. Watch flocks of birds follow their flight paths across the lagoon and kangaroos hop along the front lawn.

Shaded by enormous Moreton Bay figs, Ratcliff Cottage offers serene views and an expansive terrace overlooking Pelican Lagoon. Step back in time and experience the pristine wilderness of the Pelican Lagoon Conservation Park and Aquatic Reserve as generations have before you. This limestone homestead was originally built by one of KI’s early settlers in 1911 and was lovingly restored and renovated in 2015.

Tastefully appointed, Ratcliff Cottage sleeps six comfortably across four bedrooms: 2 king rooms that can convert to twin king singles upon request, 1 queen room and 1 single room with an additional trundle bed. Enjoy light and airy open plan holiday living with a friendly split system air-conditioner / heater, restored cork floors, fast WIFI, cotton linen, fluffy towels, pillow top posturepedic mattresses, and a well-equipped kitchen. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need to make the most of Kangaroo Island’s glorious fresh produce.

Ratcliff Cottage offers eco-friendly design features including solar power, a large verandah, pure rainwater throughout and a surrounding revegetation program. Given the high conservation value of Pelican Lagoon, motorised boats and jet skis, bringing your pets and fishing from the property is not an option, but there are plenty of great fishing locations close by. If you’d like to explore the lagoon, we can arrange kayak hire.

Ratcliff Cottage is an ideally located launch point for exploring Kangaroo Island, a wildlife paradise for kangaroos, wallabies, bandicoots, echidnas, goannas and plentiful birdlife. You will be just minutes away from local attractions such as Island Beach perfect for swimming, American River, Pennington Bay, Kingscote and Mount Thisby, with wineries, farmers markets and wildlife parks in close proximity. Only 15 minutes from the Penneshaw Ferry, Ratcliff Cottage allows easy access for boaties, with two nearby public boat ramps at Island Beach and American River.

Pristine beaches, spectacular coastline, old growth forest, beach combing, kayaking, fishing, swimming, surfing — get ready to relax on KI If you’d like to create some Kangaroo Island memories of your own, enquire today. Ratcliff Cottage awaits

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peaceful tranquility! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was very comfortable, and despite the cold weather we were warm and cosy in front of the fire. The bird life, starry nights, wildlife and views over the lagoon made this a very peaceful break for us. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! We were so pleased with the house. Lovely home, everything you could need, very comfortable and lots of kangaroos. Kate was really attentive to our needs and ordered in a high chair and travel cot for us especially. Would highly recommend this house if you want a nice, quiet, comfortable stay.
