Beautiful home with views from the deck out over the natural vegetation and only a 2 minute walk to beautiful Vivonne Bay beach. Central to major attractions on KI and well equipped for all holiday needs. Voted Australia's best beach in 2003, enjoy!

The space

Osprey is a beautiful and remote house with a peaceful setting sitting high on the hill with views over the river and natural vegetation. It has all the facilities you want (very well equipped kitchen particularly). We also have many facilities for babies / children, available upon request.

Guest access

Bookings are by house only, not by room. Guests will have exclusive access to the three bedroom home, ample car parking and all amenities are included in the fee.

Interaction with guests

Osprey Heights is remote so we organise access to the house while not physically there. Support is in Kingscote, 40 minutes away. I'm always available on e-mail and phone and endeavour to reply in under 24 hours.

Other things to note

Make sure you check out Rustic Blue for local art pieces and great food. Also Andamel's Marron Farm shouldn't be missed, very close to home and the local Marron is a must to try while on KI.

Tammie's house in Vivonne Bay is wonderful. It is even better than it looks on the website. It is very comfortable, very warm in winter (thanks to the wood-burning fire), and really feels like a home-away-from-home with lots of games, DVDs, bluetooth stereo, BBQ, and fully equipped kitchen (complete with espresso machine). The views from the verandah are simply stunning, and with wildlife on the doorstep, it is an ideal place to experience the tranquility and beauty of Kangaroo Island. The location, in Vivonne Bay, is perfect for exploring. The house is a very short drive from the marvelous and quirky Vivonne Bay stores which makes a big difference to catering on this part of the island. Communication with Tammie was very clear and very helpful. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our stay on Kangaroo Island and Osprey Heights is perfectly located for exploring the island! Tammie is a good host and communicated well throughout - easy check-in and out too. Osprey is very secluded and a great opportunity to get away and relax. It's just a short walk from Vivonne Bay beach which is beautiful. A lovely place to stay.

Well, this was my first taste of Air BnB and I couldn't have had a better experience. Clean, comfortable, peaceful and the opportunity to light a woodburning stove 12000 miles away from home was a treat. Excellent communication from our host and although we only stayed two nights, the memories will last a lifetime. Thank you Tamara. Harvey.

We absolutely loved kangaroo island and especially Tamara's little piece of paradise that we were able to stay in for two days! It was absolutely stunning and none of the pictures does it any justice! It is in the middle of surreal location and close to the beach and it is teeming with wildlife and we greeted by the sweetest wallaby one morning. The place is fantastic and also has a BBQ on this stunning terrace as you sit and enjoy the beautiful surroundings! I will never forget the place as my boyfriend proposed to me on the terrace as it is just magical! So I would really recommend staying there! Tamara was a great host, and gave us exact descriptions of how to find the place and how to get around etc! It is the perfect location for all the main attractions on the island! Sadly we only stayed two nights but could imagine coming back for our honeymoon possible! We would definitely come back! Thanks for everything!

I work full time in marketing and try to make the most of my annual leave. I have a beautiful daughter and hope she enjoys adventure and exploring this beautiful world as much as I do.

I grew up on Kangaroo Island, love country travel as much as city exploration!
