A business the 2020 fires has caused alot of heartache for but the owners still ensure you have a great time at their cabins, extra towels to help with our skin problems, a lovely hand written welcome note, bottle of wine, local produce, sunsets at your veranda over the ocean, Not sure what more you could ask for!!!

Forget Sydney Opera House, Kangaroo Island is the place to come when visiting Australia and these cabins are just magic! We had visited the island before and had come back to see how it was recovering following the terrible wild fires. Although the amount of wild-life has sadly diminished and there are still signs of the devastation in parts of the island, the inhabitants (both two and four legged!) have been amazingly resilient and it is just a delightful place to stay. The cabins themselves are situated on the cliff over-looking idyllic Stokes Bay, which has just been voted one of the best beaches in Australia (although never crowded on account of its remote location). They are nicely spaced, allowing for plenty of privacy and are furnished very attractively and comfortably. The kitchen area is well equipped and the fluffy robes provided on a par with the best hotels! The views are spectacular and to be able to hand-feed the wild kangaroos which roam around the grounds and visit the balcony is just the icing on the cake. There are other animals on-site and parrots , pelicans and dolphins frequent the bay and the area. Other than that, it is just a haven of peace and quiet. The hosts are extremely helpful should you need advice or have a problem. If only we could have stayed longer!

A very unique and unforgettable experience. We had a pleasant three nights stay in a self contained 3 bedroom cottage. The place was very spacious and fully furnished with all the essential amenities. Walkable distance to the Rockpool Cafe and Stokes Bay Beach, one of the best beaches on the entire island. Amazing sunset views in our very own backyard. Paul was an friendly, excellent and an amazing host, who gave us the opportunity to feed about fifty Kangaroos at a time right behind our back verandah. Would not stay anywhere else on the island if we had the opportunity to come back. Highly recommended to anyone visiting Kangaroo Island.

I stayed 2 nights at Waves and Wildlife cottages with my husband during our visit to Kangaroo island. We stayed in a one bedroom cabin, which was clean and had all the necessities required for a comfortable stay including kitchen utensils, heating, and a comfy bed. The location is quite remote which we enjoyed, but there is limited phone/internet reception and the closest place to pick up groceries would be an IGA around 30min drive away. The location and scenery is peaceful and stunning with lots of Kangaroos milling around the property during the day. We were fortunate enough to meet Paul and some of his critters which was definitely a highlight of our stay!

We spent 8 days at Waves and Wildlife cottages at Stokes Bay and rate the location and accommodation highly. The cottage is spacious, clean and comfortable in a fantastic location that overlooks the bay and home to plenty of native fauna. Stokes Bay is a relaxed retreat and perfectly positioned for exploring the rest of the island. Paul and Katja were wonderful hosts and Paul will pop by to involve you in feeding the kangaroos in front of your cabin during your stay, must have been 100 or so roos that turned up. We had a great time exploring Kangaroo Island and really did not want to leave.

I cannot rate these cabins highly enough. Not only do they have an amazing view, they are every well equipped and perfect for both couples and families. The cabins are well positioned so that they all have a view and are far enough apart that you don't notice your neighbours. Except the kangaroos which are everywhere! Much better than your average caravan park cabin and lots of thoughtful touches like board games and decent kitchen utensils. We also received a complementary bottle of wine and Kangaroo island honey even though we had only booked two nights. Great value for money and very friendly place.

These cottages are perfect for a no-frills accommodation and the view and wildlife are amazing. Facilities are basic, local town only 24kms with basic supplies but close to Kingscote with larger supplies. The location is perfect to tour the island in any direction. A family run business, Paul and Katja are lovely and always willing to help or have a chat.

We booked 5 nights at Waves and Wildlife Cottages and we couldn't choose a better place! If you are looking for a place to unwind and relax, this is the perfect getaway!! Our cottage was spacious, clean and comfortable and it had all you need for a great stay. There is plenty of kangaroos around the cottages and they come very close to the cottages. You can seat in the verandah and have dinner at sunset while enjoying their company. Paul is a great host, nice and friendly. He let us feed the kangaroos, the lamb and he also showed us his reptiles. He accomodated all our requests and he also gifted us with a bottle of wine and a small pot of honey at our arrival!! The Cottages are located very close to Stokes Bay which is probably the most beautiful beach on the island...if you know how to reach it :) We were lucky to have a close encouter with a seal and dolphins one morning at the beach!! From Stokes Bay you can also easily visit all the Island which is slowly recovering from the 2020 fires. We will definitively come back! Thanks Paul for everything and we wish you all the best!!

Spent 7 nights at waves and wildlife in Janurary 2021 and it was a great experience. The cabins have amazing views of the ocean and wildlife literally on your door step. The self contained cabins are generous in size and have full cooking facilities. The staff are amazing and there was opportunities to feet wildlife on the grasslands in front of the cabins. Excellent value, very generous size and space. Only a few minutes walk out the front of the cabins to beautiful stokes bay beach with its amazing rock formations. Centrally located to get to all the attractions of kangaroo Island. We will be back again!
