Our accommodation was lovely. The cottage was quaint and very well equipped. The bed was comfortable although the room was quite small. I prefer a bed for 2 not to be against a wall. It was peaceful and had a very nice feel to it....More

About the neighbourhood
Situated within a 5 minute stroll to both Vivonne Bay beach and Harriet River, Serenity Cottage is an ideal place from which to explore Kangaroo Island. Vivonne Bay's long, curved, sandy beach is a superb site for picnics, beachcombing, surfing and fishing. Experienced surfers enjoy the wonderful turquoise waters. Fishing from the jetty, beach, boat or the Harriet River mouth is excellent. The beach can be reached by taking the road just past the Vivonne Bay store. Safe swimming areas can be found near the jetty and boat ramp, or the sandy-bottomed Harriet River that enters the bay nearby.
Getting around
You'll need a car to tour around Kangaroo Island.
