About the property

Meticulously restored 1910's blacksmith's cottage offering a uniquely intimate experience.

Local stone walls, rare timber ceilings and period décor, create a return to times past.

Relax in the comfortable sitting room, complete with sofa-bed and flat screen TV.

Retire to the cosy bedroom after your active day of sightseeing.

The perfect escape for couples, with contemporary bathroom and quaint, well-equipped period kitchenette. Enjoy the cosy fire of the wood-heater in the winter months.

A large, old-style porch overlooks the lovingly maintained productive cottage garden.

Enjoy a two-minute stroll to spectacular sunrises over the foreshore precinct, offering cafes, hotels, gift shops and galleries. Venture further to the wharf where fishing is popular.

Visit the tidal swimming pool at the end of the street, where local seals sun themselves.

Explore the foreshore walking trails, with expansive views across Nepean Bay.

The Forge, Kingscote, is an excellent central home-base for exploring all that Kangaroo Island has to offer.

Beautiful cottage, perfect rest stop after a long days sightseeing

  • 4 of 5

Such a beautiful little cottage, clearly lovingly restored and authentic. The little garden is a truly delightful spot to sit in and read, dine, drink etc. Bed was comfortable and the place was suitably dark at night.

One comment however; without having the stove lit it's very difficult to cook a meal easily - although there is a microwave and plug-in frying pan.

If we visit KI again, we're definitely asking to stay here again! Thanks Fern!
