Star accommodation

We were very pleased with the accommodation which was an excellent base for exploring the western end of the island. A lovely peaceful location. Very spacious and well equipped. We wish we had more time there Great that the owners helped with directions. It was fun feeding the wallabies in the evenings.



Thanks for a great stay. We loved the wallabies

Very peaceful setting beautifully presented. had everything that you would need. Make sure you purchased food supplies in Kingscote rather than leaving til the Vivonne bay store an excellent venue for a relaxing vacation central to all island highlights.

It was a wonderful experience. Top value for accommodation and service we will return Thankyou.



Hi - thank you for replying so quickly you have put my mind at rest knowing that our holiday in your accommodation is secure for next year. Once again thank you so very much for making our accommodation so perfect - I have stayed in a quite a few holiday lets over the years and yours easily knocks the socks off them all. Your attention to detail with regard to home comforts is excellent - next year I won't have to overload the car with extra kitchen bits and bobs because they are already there and I can tell you we are always overloaded with kitchen stuff as Steven is a Chef and likes to have enough pans and knives.....

Thanks ever so much.


Tour Operators have highly praised the quality of accommodation, of Island Dream.

Had an excellent stay at Island Dream - was pleasantly surprised at how clean and well equipped the place is... the kitchen has practically everything you need for cooking and BBQ, including cooking oil and spices. Loved the little touches the owner has put in, like the tea & coffee, local attractions guide, personal collection of music CDs, etc. Gives the place a very personal touch. We truly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend "Island Dream Escape" to anyone planning a trip to Kangaroo Island Oh, and did I mention that Vivonne Bay is undoubtedly a beauty compared to other beaches on the island

Our trip to Kangaroo Island by Siggi

On New years day I left with my newly wedded husband and my family from Germany five adults and 2 children for our "family honeymoon" to Kangaroo Island.

It has been my dream since I first came to the island many years ago to actually stay for a whole week on Kangaroo Island to be able to fully enjoy not just the typical highlights but also to explore of the beautiful coastline , spend time on the beach and enjoy the nature and wildlife.

We stayed at Vivonne Bay on the western side of the island in a couple of beautifully furnished and well equipped modern houses

ISLAND DREAM ESCAPE which provided us with all the comforts of home.

The view from our house was into the beautiful green bush and after dusk the wallabies and possums made their way to our bungalows to have their nightly feed specially provided food from the bungalows . My family loved to sit on the verandah for dinner most nights , the adults with a nice glass of South Australian red in their hands , watching these beautiful creatures of nature feeing on our front garden . The possums were a bit more adventurous and actually made their way up to the verandah to grab a few pieces of apple left by our children on the decking.

It was great to see how much my family enjoyed themselves on Kangaroo Island and all the other places we took them to in South Australia and I am sure they will be back soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everything we needed We had a great stay at Island Dream Escape and it had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend away. The set up with living/kitchen area at the front and bedrooms at the back was great. We liked cooking BBQ's on the front deck while overlooking the nice scrub views. The coffee machine was a bonus too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Location The house does not disappoint. Kitchen had everything you needed and the bed was comfortable. We loved sitting on the verandah taking in the views and serenity of Vivonne Bay and did a lot of our cooking on the outside grill. Being able to walk to a beach was a bonus - only 5-10min. The wallabies visited every night! The Rustic Blue Gallery just up the road has some fabulous art work and gifts - well worth the visit. The main attractions are close including Seal Bay, Kelly Caves, Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch just to name a few. We would highly recommend driving to the Vivonne Bay Jetty. Hanson Bay (half hour drive) was another beautiful beach we visited, a very sheltered beach and great for swimming. The only negative was that the Vivonne Bay General Store was closed due to a fire so you couldn't get petrol or basic food items eg: milk, bread etc. You would have to go to Parndana or Kingscote. Luckily we were told about this at the airport when we landed so we bought all our food at Kingscote before arriving at the house. We are looking forward to coming back to this magical place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect spot to relax My second stay at Island Dream. It's clean and comfortable (very comfy bed) and has everything you need for a relaxing break, and only a couple of minutes walk to the beautiful beach. Will happily stay there again.
