We stayed here in July for 3 nights at the deluxe one-bedroom apartment. The unit is clean, spacious and well-equipped. Every night we cooked our big dinner. Free wifi is available which is good. The host is very friendly and gave us good suggestions on driving routes. We drove on the unsealed roads to the south coast with our conventional...

We stayed here in June based on the comments on TA and in particular the location and level of comfort. I spent a lot of time researching and reading traveller comments before I booked our accommodation. Don't be fooled by previous comments, these are fibreboard units heated/cooled by reverse cycle units that are extremely noisy (TV had to be turned...

Sounds like you did not enjoy your holiday to Kangaroo Island at all. However, based on our Trip Advisor ratings of 9 out of 10 I think we must be doing something right.

We spent only one night here in the Ficifolia Lodge, and we wished we'd booked all three nights to stay here. This was the best accommodation we stayed in on Kangaroo Island and can't recommend it highly enough. Base yourself here for the duration of your stay - it is central enough that you can travel to any part of...

Our four nights here were the highlight of three weeks in Australia, and Sue's welcome and advice could not be bettered - an example to all in her business. This fantastic island is what we visualised Australia to be - fabulous wildlife, many red dirt roads (with hardly any traffic!) and wonderful, varied scenery and beaches. It's also larger than...

We have just returned from a great trip to Australia. One of our highlights was Kangaroo Island, where we spent a couple of days to get the special feel of this lovely island and hopefully see lots of animals. We decided to book Ficifolia Lodge in Parndana, which lies more or less in the middle of K.I. Ficifolia is a...

Everything seemed to have been recently updated. The large bathroom was modern and had up to date fixtures. The kitchen was well equipped and the table seated 6, ideal for a family. With only 2 of us, we only used the bedroom with the king sized bed but the other bedroom had 3 single beds, one bunk and one single....

We chose Ficifolia because of its central location on the island and because the photos made it look comfortable. It was everything and a bit more that we expected. Sue was just wonderful. She is so friendly and cheery. She mapped out our day for us so we wouldn't miss anything which was good. The units are a real home...
