“We unexpectedly stayed an extra night on Kangaroo Island, and chose Sandy and Kevin’s place due to its proximity to Penneshaw (eight minutes during daylight hours, twice that if a cautious person is driving at night!) While we were only there for a night, we wished we could have stayed longer. The accomodation was spotlessly clean, the bed comfortable, and the home made bread that Sandy gave us on our return from our meal out in town provided a lovely breakfast complete with home made jams before we departed.”    “Thanks to Sandy and Kevin for making our last night on Kangaroo Island a great one, we wish we could have stayed longer. Incidentally, the awesome bread fed us well and was demolished by the time we got back to Melbourne on Sunday afternoon!”  David, April 2019

Sandy & Kevin are delightful hosts and were always at hand when we needed some help. The annex of the house we stayed in is private and extremely comfortable with everything that you can possibly need. Views across the ocean and nearby farmland, beautiful deck furniture to relax in, full kitchen and laundry, extremely comfortable beds with good heating. The house is conveniently situated in a quiet, scenic location only 10 mins drive from Penneshaw, the ferry terminal, the local beaches and winery. We watched dolphins at sunset in Penneshaw Bay. The house is about an hours drive to Seal Bay which was a highlight of our trip. Breakfast provisions are optional, but offer mouth-watering local jams, home-made bread & muffins and lots more. We highly recommend this B&B and would definitely stay again. Zorana ASandy and Kevin, our hosts, provide a "home away from home". The rooms are spacious and they have thought of everything to make a holiday comfortable. The sea views back over to the mainland and the garden setting are beautiful. I found it amazing how there was so much colour in the garden in Winter. The location was excellent with a winery providing simple but pleasant lunches nearby, then Penneshaw is only a few minutes away with fuel, a good IGA, takeaways and a heritage pub. We hired a rental car so that we could access most attractions. Coming from Queensland, we were unprepared for the size of Kangaroo Island and the monopolistic mileage restrictions on rental cars found nowhere else we have travelled in the world over many years. Next time, we would stay a week or more and would definitely stay at The Lookout again. Dojii June 2018
