Absolutely fantastic

  • 5 of 5

The property exceeded our expectations The location was fantastic with views across a perfect bay and direct access to the beach for sunset and sunrise walks. It was not only clean and well maintained but stylish and relaxing. The kitchen had everything imaginable which was important as we did a lot of our own cooking due to our special dietary needs. The house was warm due to great heating. The local IGA supermarket had good produce, was not expensive and was an easy walk away so I could send the kids to get the milk. We were thrilled by visits by a local frolicking seal and a pod of dolphins to our bay as well as day trips further afield to the remarkable rocks which were a huge hit with young and old, as well as a walk to the light house and seal rocks. The Australian bush land is of course beautiful as well. Well worth the visit.

We can’t wait to return

  • 5 of 5

Eddie has a magnificent house laid out with all you need to make it his home your base while exploring KI☺️. We recommend Dempsey wines and the Osyter Farm Shop to get supplies to stay at Eddies place. If you are looking for decent red meat need to visit Kingscote as the local IGA is great but no fresh seafood or Sa meets. Thanks again for letting us stay, we will be returning

A beautiful location and home.

  • 5 of 5

Millpond is a truly beautiful home in which to stay. It is spotless and everything that one could need or want is provided. The view is spectacular, the location is quiet, it is easy to find and close to the ferry. We would have no hesitation in recommending Millpond to anyone wishing to stay on Kangaroo Island.
