Ecopia Retreat - Luxury Eco Villas in a wildlife sanctuary

Villa in Seddon with kitchen and balcony
Two luxurious eco Villas, each graced with panoramic views of the natural surroundings and carefully sited to provide guests with an intimate, private experience. Crafted from rammed earth, with eco solar-passive design and contemporary open-plan, the Villas boast double glazed windows, hardwood floors and charming wood fireplace. Appointed with luxurious king-size bed and freestanding bath. Off-grid, solar energy and rainwater, self-contained, eco-friendly – the softest footprint, in luxury!

The Space:
The Ecopia Villas provide the ultimate romantic escape to nature. Villa Ada and Villa May, each set in secluded locations on a vast property, full of wildlife and spectacular scenery. Ecopia Retreat is a registered dedicated wildlife sanctuary. The eco-friendly Villas deliver an authentic Kangaroo Island immersive experience. The most unique off-grid luxury slow-stay on KI!

Guest Access:
Guests are invited to explore around this spectacular property. A map is provided, showing boundaries and suggested walking trails. The property is accessible to 2WD vehicles. Many of the roads on Kangaroo Island are unsealed, but do not require 4WD vehicles. It is recommended that a standard size sedan or larger vehicles be used, in the interest of comfort on the roads at different times of the year.

Accessibility - We love sharing our beautiful property with our guests, allowing them to relax in the peaceful setting and enjoy watching the wildlife in their natural habitat. We believe in being inclusive, so the Ecopia Retreat Villas were designed with accessible holidays in mind. Villa accessible features include:

*Boardwalk from the car park to deck surrounding the Villa
*Deck surrounding the Villa is at the same level as the interior
*The Villa interior is single leveled and very spacious
*The contemporary minimalistic interior design and furnishing allow easy access and maneuverability inside the Villa
*The spacious bathroom has a flat floor, and features a wide, open shower (1000mm), and a raised toilet seat
*Shower stool and toilet surrounds provided

**Please note that the entrance to the Villa is via a double glazed glass sliding door.

We have created a property designed to allow wide accessibility options for our guests. Please contact us to discuss further details and your specific needs.

The Neighborhood:
Ideally positioned in the centre of Kangaroo Island, Ecopia Retreat is the perfect location to base yourself, from which you can embark on your adventures to discover the wonders of KI:
*Vivonne Bay (beach, fuel, convenience store, takeaway food and alcohol) – 20 minutes
*Seal Bay Conservation Park (guided or self exploring tours around the sea lion colony) – 15 minutes
*Little Sahara Sand Dunes (sand boarding and tobogganing) – 15 minutes *Flinders Chase National Park – 40 minutes
*Admirals Arch (within Flinders Chase National Park) – 50 minutes
*Remarkable Rocks (within Flinders Chase National Park) – 50 minutes *Hanson Bay Beach – 40 minutes
*Kelly Hill Caves (undamaged, however temporarily closed post bushfires) – 35 minutes
*Stokes Bay (gorgeous beach, café, boat ramp) – 30 minutes
*Parndana (dine in and take away food options, takeaway alcohol, fuel) – 15 minutes

Getting Around:
Recommended for independent travellers, self-drivers. A vehicle is required to access the property. There is no need for a 4WD, a standard sedan 2WD is recommended for travel comfort throughout the Island.

Other Things to Note:
The Eco Villas are identical and can be booked separately or together by two couples wanting to holiday together, while enjoying their own private spaces. The Villas are within walking distance of each other, but situated in secluded locations. Ecopia is a destination in its own right. Staying here is like staying within a national park, so it is recommended that guests allow the time to explore around the property during their stay. The property is located very centrally on the Island, and is the perfect base to explore the highlights of the Island from. While very central, the Retreat is still located on a large bush land, away from restaurants and shops, and so is designed to be self-contained for independent travellers. Further guest services are available as ‘add-ons’ such as Eat & Drinks packages and massages.

Interaction with Guests:
Ecopia is designed for a peaceful intimate experience, so the Villas are situated in secluded locations, immersed in nature. We value your privacy and your wish for a peaceful romantic getaway, so you won’t see us during your stay (unless you really need to). We stock your Eco Villa with everything you will need for the duration of your stay but if you do need anything at all, we will be able to help promptly. We are always available via phone/text/email (you have reliable WiFi in your Villa).
Guest accommodation at this villa offers fireplaces and a hairdryer. Rooms open to balconies. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, kitchenware and utensils and coffee/tea makers. Bathrooms include baths or showers.
Recreational amenities at the villa include a spa tub.

Kangaroo islands best secret - Villa Ada
Was looking for something special for our 20th wedding anniversary Villa Ada was perfect We had a most wonderful stay at Villa Ada. Was so quiet and peaceful. With nothing but wildlife around. The Villa is very comfortable and the perfect place to sit back and relax. With a nice wood stove it would be very enjoyable even in winter. Would love to come back one day.
