Stayed from the 16th til the 18th Nov. Beautiful house, absolutley love the spot. Everything you could ask for in the house is supplied. I could happily live there. Now for the bad points, and they are baaad. Mouldy shower in the ensuite, absolutley putrid. It stunk in there of dampness and mould. I should NOT have to buy exit mould to clean the shower myself. But I had to. The main bathroom wasn't much better. And around the plug hole in the spa. I sprayed the exit mould in the shower and waited, didn't have to scrub. Didn't want to scrub. That's not what holidays are about, having to clean where you rent and pay $220 a day for! And after ten minutes nearly all the mould was gone! If I had scrubbed it, it would of been spotless. But it isn't my job. The spa obviously doesn't get cleaned after every rental. Ie:The jets and pump washed out and sanitised. From taking a pic up a jet and finding a pubic hair and grossness, we weren't going to be using that bath anytime soon. And I wasn't cleaning it! Kitchen cupboard by sink on the left was dirty to. With some crap spilled in there and wasn't cleaned up. Very disappointed, as this is such a great house and you expect better cleanliness wise. Other then that it was clean and well presented. Very happy to stay here again, no probs there, just please make sure the showers and spa are clean.

I stayed at the Dolphin Rest. I am told that the Dolphin Rise is an exact duplicate of the Rest. I made the booking through Sealink which offers a good-priced package, including a return ferry trip. It is a functional bungalow with 3 rooms, a large shared bathroom, a large and well equipped kitchen, and a washing machine. The sitting room can comfortably sit 10 persons, while the dining table is in the best location of the bungalow overlooking the sea. There is an attached open car porch. It has an interesting hassle-free self check-in/check-out concept. It is slightly outside Kingscote town centre, so you have to travel a short distance out for meals outside. Overall, the accommodation is clean and neat, and very suitable for families or group of friends. While it boasts a beach across the road, sadly the beach is not really suitable for laying about or swimming.

It's a 2 apartments leased out. I stayed at the Dolphin Rise. Nice, clean, fully self-contained apartment. 3 bedrooms w 2 separate toilets. Have I mentioned the great view from the dining table? Just sitting there w my wine staring at the postcard view lowers my blood pressure a few notches.
