The beauty of Honeyeaters Hideaway is that you cannot see any neighbours and it feels like you are in the middle of one of Australia's most pristine conservation parks.

Honeyeaters has a large fridge, a small cooker, microwave, gas barbecue, kettle, toaster, electric frypan, and crockery, cutlery, pots and pans.

Honeyeaters has a reverse cycle air conditioner and ceiling fan in main room.

There is no television reception but plenty of entertainment with a DVD player and DVDs, a stereo and CDs, radio, books and games.

Honeyeaters Hideaway is a short stroll to Vivonne Bay main beach which was voted Australia's best beach in 2003 by a Sydney University study on over 10,000 beaches. Enjoy beautiful walks along this beach, home to the annual KI surf carnival; hire a canoe and explore the nearby river; fish from the jetty; and discover a host of tourist attractions including Seal Bay, Raptor Domain Birds of Prey display, KI Outdoor Action, Kelly Hill Caves, the Koala Walk, Flinders Chase National Park, Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch. For your convenience, there is a general store in the Vivonne Bay town ship supplying basic groceries, takeaway food, wine.

Owners comment re TELEPHONE RECEPTION: We get Telstra reception on the road that looks out over Vivonne Bay, a couple of minutes walk away; and at the jetty. We rarely get it at the house though.

No Optus reception at Vivonne Bay but you can get it at Kingscote and Penneshaw. There is also a phone box at the general store old school but handy at times


We would highly recommend Honeyeaters Hideaway. It is a lovely cottage, nestled in a beautiful bush setting, only a couple of minutes from the beach at Vivonne Bay. It is a nature lover's paradise. Every morning and evening, on our return from our travels, we were treated to a display of honeyeaters and other native birds foraging for food just outside the windows and 6 wallabies who joined us on the verandah. It was a great base for exploring Seal Bay, Hansons Bay, Admirals Arch and the Remarkable Rocks. No TV reception which was a bonus as you could just relax and watch the great selection of DVDs on offer or read a book. It was only a short walk from the Vivonne General Store where you could enjoy the famous whiting burgers. We will be back Sally & Peter Kalorama Victoria Honeyeaters Hideaway is the absolute best place to stay EVER So close to a beautiful beach, secluded in peaceful nature and close to wallabies and kangaroos. The locals were super nice and all the destination spots on KI are only a short drive away. I highly recommend staying here Christopher and Meghan March 2017

This place is a perfect little home that really participated to make us enjoy our stay in Kangaroo Island. The house is just exactly as it seems on the pictures, beautiful, well equipped and comfortable. Spending several days there is the best if you want to appreciate the wildlife coming around from time to time. The animals are the only neighbors you can encounter because the house is surrounded on every sides by trees, you can't even see the road. A real cocoon of nature in which it is way to easy to fell like at home. Andy and partner Taiwan and France. February 2017

It was by far the best place, even after seeing so many other "fancy" ones around KI. Honeyeaters superseded everywhere else. It has Privacy, calmness, serenity, views, fantastic beach, all amenities and so so comfortable. Yeah to no WIFI OR PHONE RECEPTION. 10 Maryann April 2016

As first time visitors to the island our stay at Honey eaters hideaway was fabulous. The feeling of being surrounded by the natural flora in complete privacy from any others really gave us a feel of being in a very remote place but with all the modern cons. A complete escape from the hustle and bustle of every day life. Our only disappointment with our stay was that we had to go home. Tanya. March 2012

"Perfect little hideaway - you could be in the middle of a forest Rustic and cute, the perfect couples retreat" Brenton Davis

Great house/cabin in walking distance to the beach.

Well priced for the amenity and central place to explore the other parts of KI.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent place to explore KI from We loved Honey Eaters Hideaway and found it the perfect place to explore the whole island from a relatively central point. The cabin with a hint of rusticness was perfect for the 2 of us - very private and comfortable - we never pulled the blinds down once. Vivonne Bay is specatular - long walks on pristine white sand and crystal clear waters. We'll be back sometime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cosy Beach Hideout The two of us were looking for a private little nest and Honeyeaters Hideaway fit the bill perfectly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good location for short break Honeyeaters Hideaway is a comfortable, compact studio in a private, green location. The bed is comfortable and all the basics are there for couple. The highlight for us was the regular visits from two wallabies and the great self filling bird trough which led to a variety of birds visiting to drink and bathe throughout the day. The location is also great for walks along Vivonne Bay beach and a visit to Seal Bay (take the first tour of the to miss the crowds).
