Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful house with great views Really enjoyed our short stay on Kangaroo Island. Western's View is a well equipped and spacious property that i'd definitely recommend. The log fire is great for those colder evenings but the house also has heating and cooling for when required. Will hopefully be able to come back in the not so distant future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home away from home Western's View is an idyllic position on KI and has been fitted out with absolutely everything you need to make your stay comfortable. We loved the view, the fire place, the spacious home, the comply bef and the contact made by the friendly and helpful owners this one of the most pleasant places we have stayed. The island had so much to experience. Don't be put off with going in winter. It's magic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great location, amazing views. My partner and I stayed in this home for 3 nights in July, the house was clean and spacious, we loved staying here. The location is good too, close to cafes, pubs and supermarkets. It was nice to watch the sunset/ sunrise over the balcony at the gorgeous views of the ocean. The owner couldn't do enough for us, providing tools to light the fire (which was great on a cold night) & was very welcoming. Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely home!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sea views and very short walk to beach We stayed for 2 nights in january 2017 and found the house to be very homely and comfortable. It is light and spacious and both bedrooms are generous in size. You can sit on the long deck and relax and see the sea which is only a short walk away. The fruit on the trees in the garden looked lovely but not yet ripened so whoever stays in coming months will be lucky. There is a supermarket in Penneshaw and also one in Kingscote. We went to the Kingscote one and it had everything and the prices were not expensive as you would normally expect on an island. The kitchen in the house is modern and has all you need. If you visit the sand dunes near Seal Bay for a slide in summer go early and lather the sunscreen on as otherwise you will get very sun burnt. The sand dunes are fun and you can hire a toboggan or a snow type board. Other great places we visited were the seals at seal bay and the raptor bird park where you will have opportunity to hold a huge brown eagle and also see owls and other local species of birds at close swooping range. We also enjoyed an excellent lunch at a cafe called rustic blue near vivonne bay about 8km from the sand dune place. We had a great time but note Kangaroo is is very large so you cant do everything in one day. The house was lovely to come back and relax on the deck at the end of the day. You can easily buy your food at the supermarket and cook it at the house to save on buying out all the time.
