Island Time at Vivonne Bay

Riverside Holiday home with kitchen and balcony
Island Time is a lovely air-conditioned self-catering holiday house located at beautiful Vivonne Bay on the south coast of Kangaroo Island, two hundred metres from one of Australia's most stunning beaches. The decor is modern with a bright and airy ambience. There are two bedrooms at opposite ends of the house, each featuring new queen beds.

The fully equipped kitchen includes an island bench, a new Westinghouse stove with ceramic cooktop and an espresso coffee machine with real coffee supplied. Also a new Scanpan cookware set and rice cooker.

The laundry is equipped with a front-loading washing machine, laundry tub, ironing board and clothes airer. A clothesline is available at the rear of the house.

Broadband Wi-Fi Internet and Foxtel satellite TV are included along with a widescreen TV, Blu-ray/DVD player and Bluetooth stereo system that provides smartphone connectivity for playing your favourite music. Plus a selection of DVD movies and CDs.

Our bedrooms are suitable for one or two couples or a family. An infant cot can be set up on request and use of a trundle bed can be arranged.

The house is comfortable year-round with reverse cycle air-conditioning to the open-plan living area together with a pedestal fan and portable heater. Dual control electric blankets are fitted to the beds for cosy winter nights along with MiniJumbuk wool quilts. Extra pillows and blankets are available.

The spacious outside deck overlooks a tranquil wooded valley and catches the morning sun. There is a 3-burner gas BBQ on the deck along with a new table setting and LED lighting. A great place for morning coffee, BBQ breakfasts and alfresco dinners. A fish-cleaning sink is attached to the end of the deck.

Wildlife abounds with Tammar wallabies being frequent visitors below the deck in the evenings along with brushtail possums. Numerous bird species flit about in the bush surrounds including honeyeaters and superb fairywrens. Bold little striated pardalotes occupy nests above the deck in Spring and Summer. We have also installed a birdbath in the rear garden which is popular with honeyeaters and wrens.

Island Time is ideally located between Kangaroo Island's major attractions, with Raptor Domain and Seal Bay lying to the east, and Kelly Hill Caves, Admiral's Arch, Remarkable Rocks and Flinders Chase National Park to the west. KI Wildlife Park, Stokes Bay and Hidden Beach lie to the north.

Local activities include swimming, surfing, kayaking, fishing from the beach and jetty, sand-boarding, quad-bike riding and walks along the pristine beach to the Harriet and Eleanor Rivers.

Local facilities include the Vivonne Bay General Store, jetty & boat ramp. Mobile phone coverage is provided by Optus and Telstra, noting that the Telstra signal is weak in Vivonne Bay.

Island Time is an easy ~70 minutes drive from the ferry terminal at Penneshaw and 40 minutes from Kingscote Airport.

5/5 Excellent

Same again!
Our second trip to the same Vivonne Bay accommodation in a year, with good reason! The property is comfortable, conveniently situated and has everything one might need, so staying there is a pleasure! The beach is long and great for walks, and it doesn't take long to get to attractions like Flinders Chase, Hanson bay, seal colonies etc. We would recommend this property for a Vivonne Bay stay!

5/5 Excellent

Value for money
Well fitted out house with all you could need

5/5 Excellent

First Experience of K.I
This was my first visit to K.I and now it will be many more to come. The house was at a great location to many of the sight seeing locations on the Island. It was nice and quiet location to stay and a short stroll to the beach which the kids loved even though the weather was cold. The kids loved feeding the wallabies and also got to see a possum. Kids keep bugging me already to go back.

5/5 Excellent

Holiday for family of 4
The house and location were fantastic! It was super convenient for getting to Flinders Chase, Raptor Domain and Little Sahara. The Vivonne Bay beach is stunning and we walked along it every day whilst we were there. We would NEVER get tired of such a beautiful place. Ian was very helpful and quick to respond to any issues/queries - including after we'd checked out and realised we'd left an item behind :) A fabulous stay!!

4/5 Good

Awsome Location and comfy house
Awesome little spot pretty central to all we wanted to see on the Island. 2 min walk to the beach and 2 min drive to general store which serves up some awesome food. Fish cleaning facilities are a bonus but unfortunately didnt get to use them. Communication from host was top notch. Enjoyed our stay.
