This is a truly stunning property in a tranquil setting with specatcular views. It is worth waking early for the sunrise, but you can see this from the bed, so no need to get up! The floor to ceiling wondows allow you to make the most of the views and the wildlife, including regular visits by the KI kangaroos, and spectacular parrots. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need - loads of saucepans, baking dishes, and crockery - and dishwaher, oven, hotplate and fabulous barbecue area. As we visited during winter, few restaurants or cafes nearby were open, but who'd want to risk running into wildlife on the roads after dark anyway? Produce is available in Kingscote (almost an hour away) and Parndana (half an hour tops). So, we were able to cook up a gourmet dinner every evening! The two wings are located close together, but the place is so well-designed that you will not hear a thing. You may bump into another group when using the barbecue, but this didn't happen to us in our week-long stay, and as there are two barbecues there is more than enough room for everyone. Each bedroom has its own ensuite, so this is a great place to go with friends. The beds are super-comfortable and the bedrooms and bathrooms have loads of space. Just down the road about 1.8 kilometres after Snelling Beach (just before you pass over a small bridge and turn the corner up a hill), there is a group of eucalypts that is home to a number of koalas. We counted nine on one occasion, but sometimes we could only find 3-4. They are pretty well hidden, but it is worth an expedition to see these extradinary native animals in their natural habitat. This was truly a wonderful place to have day outings to most of the sights that KI has to offer. We look forward to our return.

Be warned - if you choose to stay here, you may not want to leave! We were so pleased with our choice for our 30th wedding anniversary. The view from the apartment was stunning, it was spacious and contained all we needed to self-cater. A highlight was the huge windows that maximised the spectacular scenery. We were so delighted with our recent three night stay that we chose one day just to enjoy the view, the balcony and each other than our planned itinerary. Thank you for sharing your home and the information shared before our stay to make sure we came prepared (from being so far from shops and supplies, slippers for cold floors etc) Another highlight was our meal at nearby Stokes Bay, the cafe there was excellent, the seafood meals were very large with quality seafood ingredients and salads. Don't judge it by the appearance of the tin shed! And of course you're in the right location to enjoy the spectacular Enchanted Fig Tree, the very reason we were drawn to Snellings Beach in the first place.

My partner and I spent 2 nights in this amazing accommodation. The house was private, specious and had views of the ocean from every angle. There were kangaroos all over the hills and dolphins in the bay every morning. A true KI experience. Couldn't recommend this property enough, we absolutely loved it and cant wait to come back again.

Due to the unforeseen circumstances we were unable to visit the beauty of Kangaroo Island. The owner were extremely understanding of our situation and kind enough to offer a full refund. Me and my family will 100% be back at a later date to explore the wildlife of Kangaroo Island.

We stayed 3 nights at Snelling’s View in late December in the East wing. Everything was perfect. House is spacious, light from all angles, incredible view, kangaroos passing by at all times, very nice deck for dinner, good gas fired bbq, simple but tasteful decoration. Really enjoyed it. Just beware that closest location for groceries and beverages is 30 km away by a dirt road. Totally manageable, but make sure to buy everything needed before making it to the house. And have gasoline for the car, too. Kitchen is fully stocked.

So thrilled to visit our favourite destination on KI after the terrible, tragic fires over the summer. This beautiful property is now back in action and as lovely as ever. Our family have had a lovely time enjoying the well appointed Snelling’s View house and it remains a hidden gem.

Totally charmed by the raw beauty of this Snelling Beach rental.We opted for the single bedroom Sky House. Believe the photos then add stupendous views of sky and ocean. Bring all your supplies. Beautifully designed house and totally isolated but for the kangaroos.
