Iconic waterfront property with stunning view across the bay to Island Beach, you won't want to leave the deck of "Kalinyalla". This house is perfect for 2 people. Walk, bird watch, play tennis, fish, dine out and explore KI from this retreat.

The space

The "A Frame" is a space full of character and comfort.

Guest access

...the idea is to escape all of the modern distractions and truly relax! Includes bedding, bed linen, bath towels and cleaner.

The TV doesn't have reception and is set up to play DVD only (30 DVDS to choose from). No WiFi. Mobile phone reception is good (Telstra/Optus).

Free community BBQ shelter across the road. No oven however plenty of pots and pans etc for cooking up a stunning meal.

NOTE - The A-Frame is a compact space; the spiral staircase arrives in the twin bedroom. The master bedroom is then accessed from the twin bedroom.

Interaction with guests

Any problem call Antony, the owner, on (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). If he isn't available try the local house manager, Alex on (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).

Other things to note

It's easier to carry 2 small bags up the spiral staircase than 1 big suitcase so we suggest you try to pack accordingly.

The tennis courts have just been refurbished so pack your racquets and balls.

Beautiful space at American river, and a wonderful spacious deck to see the sun come down. Comfortable and cosy, and with excellent facilities - a really perfect place to get away from it all, at any time of year.

Easy to find and in a perfect location for peace and quiet along with some bird watching! The accommodation had everything we needed and lots we didn't. The general store had basics and we're most helpful with directions! Would recommend!

A very unique location and a very unique place to stay in. We both had a fantastic time in the A frame. Watching the black swans and pelicans float past in the bay just across the road was a surreal experience compared to our normal city life! We went down to the pier in the evening to watch seals fishing and octopuses, a stingrays swim past, the local fisherman even gave us his catch of squid for a supper! The house is all you could need when your enjoying the wildlife and scenery of Kangaroo island most of the time. I only wish it was closer to home.

Loved this house. Cool open plan downstairs and beautiful bedroom view upstairs. Comfy bed, great facilities, lovely quiet location, but a temperamental shower. Host was contactable during stay which was good. Would have liked to stay longer!

This is a really wonderful place to get away from it all, slow down and relax. It is intimate and interesting, with it's unique spiral staircase and upstairs sleeping spaces, and large open plan space below. It is very comfortable, with heaters and extra blankets provided for the colder nights. Well equipped kitchen and pleasant living area and deck. Views of the peaceful bay with its swans and pelicans. Antony was very prompt and helpful when dealing with a minor issue during our stay. Walking distance to wharf/café, tennis courts and playground and post-office/mini-mart. Highly recommended.

Thanks Catherine. I'm so glad that you and the family had a fun time. I also hope that the "Raptor Domain" was everything your son had been hoping for! Do come again. Antony

Antony's place is just how he described it! Lovely, romantic and the views are to die for! Loved the suggestion list he sent us via email! Coming from Adelaide without a lot of info about Kangaroo Island, the suggestion list he sent us was a heaven sent! The food listings, grocery and top spots were, to be honest, highly recommended even by us! The house itself had everything we needed for a couple of nights stay. We did cook a lot here and basic necessities we're provided. It is a perfect place for two people and he location is so convenient!

Hi, I have been privileged to travel extensively around the world and now call Adelaide home with my wife and children. We absolutely love getting over to the Island and spending time relaxing with the beautiful beaches (often with passing dolphins), fishing, watching the wildli…
