You have to be a Seinfeld fan! (we skipped the "airing of family grievances") This is how family holidays should be - no internet, no TV, no shops - spectacular environment & wildlife with heaps to do - and all with a sense of history pervading the experience. Where else can you see the light from a lighthouse from the... More

Stayed two nights and it was great. The cottage was massive for two people but it was great to stay in and try to understand the life of a light keeper's family. The cottage was in great condition and had everything we needed. Spent one night playing board games in the parlor and the other in front of the gas... More

We stayed 2 nights in the Troubridge Lodge. It wasn't cheap but it was an interesting experience to stay in the house where the lighthouse keepers used to live with their families. You really got a sense of the isolation and loneliness they might have experienced. The house is in its original condition but they have an electric stove and... More

Stayed here with my family for two nights to run the inaugural Kangaroo Island marathon. The location is fantastic near the Cape du Couedic light house, with pleasant walks down to Admiral's Arch and along the cliffs. At dusk there were many wallabies in the scrub around the house, and during one of our day walks we came across an... More

We stayed at the Parndana Lodge for 1 night. It was very remote and quiet. We were the only people staying in the National Park that night. Lovely views of the lighthouse though. It was a lovely cottage with all the amenities and it was clean and very well kept. The kitchen had all the cooking utensils, cooktop, oven and... More

Well, here are 2 reviews in one. We stayed for 1 night in both Parndana & Troubridge cottages during July 2015. Both cottages are facing each other. Troubridge has view of lighthouse from front of cottage. Parndana has a view directly from kitchen window. The cottages are private from park visitors due to shrubs surrounding. The lighthouse is behind shrubs... More

The location is great as it is walking distance to Admiral Arch and the light house. Teh cottage has everything we needed and having wood fire at the kitchen was very pleasent. Maybe the heaters are very small to warm up the bedrooms but they were ok.

Great little spot very close to Admiral's Arch. Cabins are clean and big, with all the necessities for cooking. Do note, you'll need to bring everything you'll want in - there are no close restaurants or anything.

The three cottages at Cape du Couedic are comfortable but more expensive than they need be and less well equipped than they might be. The cottages can sleep 6 but, if you and your partner want to defray costs by sharing with others, each of the other 4 people will cost you $30 per evening. Consequently, 6 people in the... More

We stayed as a group in two of the three Cape du Couedic Lighthouse Keeper's cottages for 8 nights. It was such a fantastic place to get away from it all. If you like peace and quiet, long walks in the wilderness and nights by the fire this is the place for you. The cottages themselves were comfortable, clean, warm... More

“There are three identical cottages. We stayed at the one closest to lighthouse, so enjoyed seeing the lighthouse warning light at night.”

“This is a 3 bedroom cottage, one of a group of three, at the south west tip of the island in the national park.”

“Not a lot of natural light as windows are small and cottages are heritage listed. There are 2 queen rooms and 1 twin room. Everywhere is quiet”

“Cottages are remote and I guess there would always be the option to book all three for a large family which would be fun.”
