Property: Kangaroo Island Seaview Motel and Guesthouse

The stone Guesthouse was built in 1927 by Flo Ellson.

It was the first Guesthouse in Kingscote and has front position on our seafront block.

Old world charm has been preserved!

High ceilings and thick stone walls keep this building cool during the summer months and there is always a lovely sea breeze of the water to enjoy through opening windows.

There are 4 private bedrooms, NO ENSUITE (communal bathrooms)


$110 PER ROOM (2 adults)

$20 for extra adult

$15 for child 3-14 years

Fully serviced rooms, all linen provided.

Room 1 queen bed and single bed (max 3 persons)

Room 2 queen bed and bunk bed (max 4 persons)

Room 3 queen bed and single bed (max 3 persons)

Room 4 double bed only (max 2 persons)

Each private bedroom has it's own hand basin and vanity area as well as everything (and more!) you would expect in a normal motel room. e.g. TV, bar fridge

The bathrooms are a shared facility, male and female separate of course with 2 showers and 2 toilets in each bathroom. Bath also in female bathroom.

There are only 4 bedrooms in the Guesthouse so there is not a lot of other guests to share with. If you stay outside holiday periods you might even have the place to yourself!

The Guesthouse has a communal area for cooking on the back veranda. There is a BBQ with hot plate and gas burner on the side for saucepans. There is also a microwave to use. You are welcome to bring any other cooking appliance to use at the BBQ area. There is a very large bench with access to power and it's all undercover.

Please note there is no cooking allowed in the rooms with the exception for boiling water and toasting bread.
