Sublime views and appointments
As Childhood friends Jenny and I had shared many wonderful holidays together with our families, adventuring to wonderful destinations around Australia. We were forever on the hunt for the ideal accommodation for two families of three and four children respectively, and this was always a challenge. We needed space to share together as well as needing space to be quiet and calm as separate families. We had enjoyed many wonderful Kangaroo Island holidays together and voted Snelling Beach as our top spot. Ten years after our last trip we revisited K.I. and found the land atop Constitution Hill overlooking Snelling Beach was for sale. On a whim and a prayer we decided to form a partnership and build what we had always wanted to find on our combined family holidays, and Snellings View is the result.
Nan purchased this House in 2006
Why Nan chose Middle River
Snellings View is a beautifully appointed beach house that consists of 2 separate 2-bedroom homes (view layout map) connected by a central reception-style entrance. The East Wing and the West Wing can be rented individually for 2 to 6 people, or together for up to 12 people. Each luxurious wing contains a queen size master bedroom with ensuite and a second bedroom with queen size bed plus a single bed with a trundle (converts to Queen bed). The trundle option is mobile and can be moved to create the best configuration for your group. The second bedroom also has a private ensuite. Each wing is best suited for a couple, 2 singles who need their own room or 2 couples who each want private facilities. Each wing can also accommodate a family with 2 adults and 2 children sharing a room, or a family with up to 4 children. Two families, larger groups or a group with private room requirements will require both homes. We encourage you to contact us to discuss bedding configuration so that you can make the most of your time and budget.
What makes this House unique
The layout is perfectly suited to any one. From group family holidays, a get away for just the 2 of you or ideal as a destination for 2 couples. The building is architecturally designed to maximize privacy, to capture natural light and to benefit from the temperate sea breeze. Snellings is a family sanctuary. Our families love to spend days swimming or fishing in crystal clear aquamarine waters. We savor dining on fresh produce on the spacious balcony or in our private outdoor entertainment BBQ area. We explore Kangaroo Island’s myriad of wonderful attractions from protected conservation parks and caves, to Birds of Prey exhibitions, being entertained by the Sea Lions or the seals, or being mesmerized by the starry nights unspoilt by the any light pollution and watching the sun rise over the ocean are just a few ways we while away our Kangaroo Island sojourn. Plus lazy days just sitting and watching the grass grow or the eagles soar! It is our pleasure to share our slice of paradise with our guests.

Amazing place and view.
One of the nicest rental property we have ever stayed at. This actually looked even better in real life than the pictures. The view was also spectacular. My wife wish we could stay for a week.
Loved waking up to the view at this property!
Views were superb, the accommodation was very nice and the wild life was the highlight of the stay.
An amazingly magical property, suits a romantic getaway and also a family holiday.
We had an amazing time at Snellings View. Words cannot describe how spectacular this property and the views are. It is equiped with everything needed for a comfortable stay. We loved waking up to the views and the kangaroos kept us entertained every day. Little one especialy loved the kangaroos.
Sensational property with magnificient vies
From the moment you walk through the door you realise how special the property is. The views are spectacular and the house is well designed with modern equipment. Well worth a visit
Superb - everything!
The house- its' clever design, beautiful bits and pieces and decor.
The view - a destination of its own. It made you linger a little in the morning and plan your day to be back for G&T sunsets. So relaxing.
Snelling Beach - its isolation, its privacy for an early morning fish off the beach.
Location - plenty to see and do on the drive to Snelling's View from ferry, a quick trip to Flinders Chase (about an hour) one day and, the next, a little longer to Seal Bay but just as easy. We're now big fans of the north coast! On the way back for a late ferry, a quick fish at American River, coffee and toastie at Pennington Beach, a walk on Island Beach before crossing the water back into the other world.
The Island - so much pristine coastline such little development. The land that modern time forget in the best possible way.
Snellings View is remote with no shopping in the local area. Bring your meal requirements with you. We have a fully equipped kitchen and stunning views from your dining room!
