Located on the tip of the Bay of Shoals on the eastern coast of Kangaroo Island, Lifetime Private Retreats offers visitors complete serenity and seclusion.
There are just three beachside villas - the Sky House, the Stone House and the Cliff House. The Sky House is ideal for couples, with its under floor heating, cosy fireplace, secluded terrace and telescope for romantic stargazing. The Stone House, which is only a three minute walk to the beach, has three en suite rooms each with a private deck. The third villa is the three bedroom Cliff House, which is all about the views. Perched on the cliff, guests look over Snelling's Beach - particularly beautiful when seen from the Jacuzzi - and the circular bedroom looks over the Southern Sea.
Each villa has a fully fitted kitchen so guests can cook for themselves. For those who would really rather not, a chef service is available in villa, or food can be served anywhere around the estate.
Kangaroo Island is famous for its abundance of native plants and animals, including dolphins, possums and over 200 species of bird. With the beach so close, snorkelling and fishing are easy to arrange, and equipment can be borrowed from the estate.
Why we love it
A concierge service is available, ensuring that all necessary groceries are waiting in the villa upon arrival.
