Le logement

Kestrel Downs is a tranquil, light-filled island retreat with free WiFi.

A unique island property - this secluded coastal haven offers both close proximity to pristine beaches and also the opportunity to share the natural habitat of Kangaroo Island's native birds and animals.

Settled lightly on the landscape, on 40 private hectares of ancient dune country - and next door to pristine Pennington Bay - Kestrel Downs offers a beautiful vista of waterways and islands. Wake to dawn's light reflected in the ocean inlet of Pelican Lagoon; sit on the verandah and watch native fauna drink and bathe at the bird bath.

The property's native bushland is home to kangaroos, wallabies, bandicoots, echidnas, goannas and plentiful birdlife. It offers serene sea and bushland views from every window, not a neighbour in sight.

This island retreat features spacious open plan living with Balinese furniture, polished bamboo floors and a sparkling new farm-size kitchen. Light and airy, it offers eco-friendly design features including solar power, surround verandah and pure rainwater throughout.

Go bird watching, fauna spotting, swimming, beach combing, fishing, surfing - or just relax, drift away and enjoy the view.

Kestrel Downs is the perfect base for exploring the island.

Un bonheur !!! Sally était d'une disponibilité et d'une prévenance hors pair. La maison est magnifique, dans un environnement calme et reposant. Beaucoup d'oiseaux et des kangourous qui viennent se désaltérer. Sans hésitation mon point de chute si je reviens à Kangourou Island

Kestrel Downs is a delightful place to stay. Tranquil setting, superb view, an astonishing parade of birds just through the birdbath outside the living room window and Tammar wallabies in the garden first thing in the morning. The house is very well equipped, the beds are truly comfortable and we loved sitting in front of the fire every evening. Sally was a thoughtful host and had great suggestions for local walks.

Sally was very helpful since I booked the house. She provided us enough info to easily locate the house and move around. I really love Sally's house, neat and full of characters. My family had a wonderful time staying there!

The house is beautiful. The weather was cool and we had a fire every night and the house was toasty warm. The wallabies and kangaroos visited at dusk. There is a large selection of movies to watch at night after you have explored the island. Sally was a gracious host. I would recommend Kestral Downs to anyone going to Kangaroo Island

We loved our stay at Kestrel Downs. The house is in a picturesque, peaceful location and prefectly situated for day trips around the island. The beds were comfy and the whole house was super clean, spacious and well equipped. We loved the daily visits from the gorgeous wallabies and the abundant birdlife. Thanks Sally for providing a lovely home away from home. I'd definitely recommend this lovely house.

Clean and beautifully decorated for a comfortable stay. Spacious rooms and ample hot water for a nice warm shower after a day of hiking. Many wallabies at dawn along the drive out of the compound.

I'm a secondary teacher by trade, a mother of two adult children and have a little grand daughter. I'm inspired by the natural environment and movies and books absorb part of my life.
My husband and I have traveled to many wonderful countries and lived overseas for 2 years. We have also lived in Sydney for a year and in Perth for 7 years, yet it is the unique beauty of Kangaroo Island which most breathes life into us.
Our family has spent many blissful holidays at Kestrel Downs and we would love to share this experience with you.
