A comfortable distance from one of the main towns in Kangaroo Island (Penneshaw) - and accessible via a brief gravel road (perfectly fine for non-4WD).

Just metres from ocean, with smooth sand beaches and blue water. House surrounded by young healthy trees. Views from the deck at the tree canopy level make for a strong sense of isolation (of the good kind) which is interesting as there are houses on either side. Design of house makes for excellent views from all the main rooms (main bedroom, kitchen, lounge).

Very tastefully appointed - fully functional kitchen and high quality appliances. Deck tables and chairs well maintained. Decor choice really invites you to relax and put your feet up. Attention to detail obvious in the range of cooking utensils/appliances and nice touches such as torches and binoculars (which you will use). Personal welcome letter was a nice touch :)

Lounge area has excellent TV/sound system and open fire, with a good selection of magazines, books, DVDs, games etc. Downstairs section (the place is big!!) can house a whole second group with additional bedrooms, bathroom, lounge area and minor kitchen facilities. Open plan arrangement makes for a great sense of space. Big glass doors maximise the view from inside.

Building is quite new at the time of writing this review and hence everything was in good working order. Would work well for couples, families or large groups.

We enjoyed our stay immensely and used Cassini Beach House as the base for daily excursions around the Island. Visitors to Kangaroo Island should be aware that a fair amount of driving is required to really see all parts of the Island. Main roads are excellent. Gravel/dirt roads are common, but generally high quality. Only a small number of areas restricted to 4WD only.

Thank you for your comments. We also find winter a great time of the year to enjoy all that Kangaroo Island has to offer, with a much milder climate than we have in Adelaide and definitely quieter all around. The window seat is a prize spot for a bit of sunny relaxing and quickly claimed!!
Well done to your husband with the fishing - nothing nicer than having whiting straight from the sea.
Please come back, we would love to see you again at Island Beach.
