Everything was perfect for our 6 day stay, our 50th wedding anniversary was celebrated where we had our honeymoon! Our hosts, Bryan and Denise went out of their way to help us celebrate too... The units are very clean and have everything you need, the mattresses are so comfortable.....plus the complimentary breakfast was well received. The villas are situated close to everything, and within walking distance to the eating areas in Kingscote. Bookings were made very easily and nothing was too much trouble. Thoroughly recommend these villas. And many thanks to Bryan and Denise for making it so memorable.

Great location, the villa was spotless and the Manager very helpful. Its at Kingscote which is more in the middle of Kangaroo Island and therefore easier to get to the attractions on the western side.

A lovely place to stay in Kingscote and literally across the street from the bay. The owners were wonderful and prompt with communication at all stages and offered helpful suggestions on places to visit. Villa was spacious with plenty of storage space - could definitely stay here for a week or two! It was a 2 BR unit, but we only used one of the bedrooms. Villa and decor were contemporary. Kitchen had basic necessities in terms of dishes/glasses/flatware (pretty much just four of each) - which seem to be consistent, if not generous, among apartments and apartment hotels in Australia. Many other nice touches, including a liter of milk, local coffees and teas, and assorted cereals. Plenty of dish detergent, clothes detergent and bath towels. There is a washing machine, but no dryer; a drying rack is provided. Wi-fi was excellent. Nice to have adjoining private garage.

Located a short walk to the centre of Kingscote, just across the road from the water, these villas are ideally located for a visit to Kangaroo Island. Brian and Denise are great hosts who provide lovely, thoughtful villas that are extremely well presented with everything you could need for any length of stay. None of the major attractions of the island are more than a couple of hours away.

Room Tip: We were there in August so it was quiet at the time, apparently gets very busy in peak periods.

Wonderful friendly host, amazing accomodation, everything spotlessly clean, such a comfortable bed and pillows, plenty of amenities including a delicious loaf of bread, cereals, milk etc, five minutes walk from town and across the road from the beach. Why would you stay anywhere else?

If I could give six stars I would, the moment we opened the front door we knew this was going to be the perfect base to explore Kangaroo Island. Firstly the location, right opposite the water and a five minute walk into Kingscote town centre. Secondly the unit itself, immaculately clean and well appointed with a large bathroom, two bedrooms, a functional kitchen and dining area and a nice furnished outdoor area with a clothes line as well as a washing machine. Thirdly the off street parking with a garage. Finally the great homely feel as well as two great hosts. Not only recommended but would not hesitate to stay here again.

I would highly recommend Villas On The Bay. Our villa was spotless, roomy, very well equipped and the bed was super comfortable. The kitchen had your usual teas, coffee etc but also had daily use items (oil spray, salt, pepper, paper towels etc) that we would usually purchase however this time we didn’t have to. The owners are very friendly and lovely people. It was hard to leave. Wouldn’t think twice about recommending this place - it’s just super. Thank you

We have been to KI twice and both times we stayed at Villas on the Bay in Kingscote. The villas are modern, clean, comfortable and conveniently located. The owners are welcoming and the homemade bread you get on arrival is the best I've eaten anywhere.

We stayed here for 3 nights as a family with our 2 kids, great accommodation and very close to everything. It was so easy walking to the main street in town and lots of restaurants nearby. Perfect, modern accommodation with wifi for the kids and a smart tv. The owner Bryan greeted us on arrival and he was so friendly, we were even given a fresh loaf of locally baked bread. This villa is with a secure gated area which was perfect for our kids to ride their bikes around.
