After staying in Penneshaw for the week & being curious about Penneshaw Beach stay travelling past each day we were ready to leave saying - we must check that place out. Then … in came the weather, no ferry we were stuck! Nowhere to stay we were so lucky to be picked off the list of many enquires & offered a room for the night. So comfortable, quality linen, very clean and modernised, plenty of space for 3 adults & a child, great touches of fridge, microwave, tea & coffee & fantastic location. Easy walk to supermarket, eateries etc. The owners were so friendly & kind. It’ll be on the list for a return trip for sure and we will never forget how fortunate we were. Thank you

The accommodation was fantastic - plenty of space for four people in the room, and the beds were comfy. The room had all necessities for a relaxing stay. Was lovely to sit and watch the ferry come and go from the window whilst drinking a coffee. Hosts were also lovely. Cannot recommend enough.

Brilliant location. While the rooms are basic they contain what a family needs and even for a couple, like us, they fit the bill. Very close to ferry terminal, next door to car rental and within waliking distance of cafes, supermarket and beach.

Large, spotless units overlooking beautiful Penneshaw Beach. Right next to ferry, car hire ( don't go past Jen from Budget) walk to IGA, cafes, great hikes. The guys who run this place are passionate about this beautiful area and have renovated these units tastefully. If you're prepared to do some driving, this place has more to offer than Kingscote.

Stayed 1 night before catching the ferry back. Michael was very good in communicating via email. The place is well located, very close to the ferry and good eating options close by. The room was large and clean, bed was comfortable. TV is in an awkward position where you have to sit on the double bed to view it, not on the sofa. The sea views vary in quality depending which room you get. Its ok value for money.

This hotel represents excellent value for money. It is located within 150-meters of the ferry terminal, 100-meters of IGA, and closeby to tourist activities. There are cafes and pubs located in short walking proximity. The hosts are friendly and excellent at providing on-ground information on places to visit and things to do. The facilities are all you need for a clean and comfortable stay.

This was my second season staying at Tandarra Lodge in Penneshaw. It was my base there while I worked as a tour guide from November to March . Dallys is an amazing hostess. I had access to a well equipped kitchen and had great clean accommodations. Its situated only 100 metres from a beautiful beach and a short walk to cafes,supermarkets and food outlets. There is also a night Penguin tour available most nights. It's also a short walk from the ferry terminal so it's very easy to get to and base there for exploring the amazing place called Kangaroo Island.

Upon arriving I was greeted and felt extremely welcomed by Dallas the owner. The place looked redone and displayed a positive vibe. A place I can not wait to return to. The accommodation was simple to navigate and provided small necessities that really made the stay, one to remember. THE VIEW!!!!
