This is a great place for a 2 nights stay in a lovely room. There is also a lounge where you can stay. Lyn is preparing the best breakfast you can get and on one of the evenings we enjoyed her cooking with a 3 course meal. On the same evening, Graham, her husband took us on a ride in... More

Did a two night tour of KI with a stay at this wonderful BB&D (Bed, Breakfast and Dinner). It's a 100 year old farm house on a 3000 acre working sheep farm (6000 sheep.) The friendly and hospitable hosts, Graham and Lyn Wheaton, are 4th generation owners. They've converted 3 rooms and baths into guest quarters. We had the front... More

We stay in lots of small inns and B&Bs during our travels. But Stranraer Homestead is the best B&B we have stayed in. Lynn met us at the airport and we followed her to the Homestead where she served us tea & biscuits on the porch and helped us plan our day. The house is exquisite with a long family... More

After touring all day and being exhausted we were brought to a dream home. Meeting us at the fate was a lovely, charming lady, Lynn, with a beautiful smile. My wife and I fell in love with Stranraer before we were inside. Then we went into a fantastic home and felt so welcome. So beautifully appointed. Our suite was perfect.... More

My wife and I travel extensively, but every so often you come across a special place. The Stranraer is over 100 years old and truly gives you the feel of what a ranch (station) house was like in the early days of Australia without sacrificing your comfort. Not easy to do. It is in the middle of an immense, still... More

You must stay here! Wonderful accommodations, Lyn & Graham are the perfect hosts! When my boyfriend suggested staying on a sheep farm, I was wary. But Stranraer turned out to be one that best places we had stayed - anywhere! I could not find one thing to improve. The house was beautiful, comfortable, nicely decorated with warmth and charm.

We were treated so well by these very experienced hosts who went the extra mile in providing for our needs. Our accommodation was superior as we were treated to their stand alone cottage behind the homestead, usually reserved for their family. It was beautifully decorated and up to date, very spacious, quiet, with modern equipment. Only lacked Wifi, but they... More

For an authentic way to experience the unique wild life on KI this homestead is a must to stay at.

We have just spent two days on Kangaroo Island and one of the highlights of our visit was definitely Stranraer. The property is immaculate and the hosts Lyn and Graham are fabulous. Dinner was excellent but breakfast was amazing. Don't fill up on the lush Bircher muesli, fruit salad, pancakes or muffins as there is more to come when Lyn... More
