Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and found the staff friendly and the service was excellent. The outside environment was just relaxing as you would like to enjoy your holiday.
Will be definately going back on my next trip to the Island.
This hotel is by the sea, nestled on a beach in American River within easy reach of scuba diving and snorkeling. Regional …More
"A truly memorable stay at Flour Cask Bay Retreat."
This is fantastic accommodation if you want to get up close and personal with the amazing wildlife that Kangaroo Island has to offer.
Dave and Jeanie were simply brilliant hosts and made us feel so welcome...we even got our own personal 4x4 tour of their grounds, during which Dave pointed out some of the amazing wildlife, including "boxing" kangaroos and a Wedge Tail Eagle...simply stunning to see in the wild. If you arrive back to the accommodation around dusk (or after) you will literally be driving up the private road past dozens of wild kangaroos....a brilliant way to end each days exploring.
The accommodation itself was extremely clean, spacious, well equipped and offered stunning views of the surrounding countryside and the hosts beautiful gardens and is well placed to explore the natural beauty of the island.
In addition and to demonstrate our hosts generosity further, we were invited to join Dave, Jeanie and their daughter Sara for a meal on our last night which was so kind of them.....and delicious !!
Just one piece of advice we would offer, the island has many minor roads which are unsealed and quite stoney in places and therefore a more "robust" hire car would be recommended. Saying that, we had a Vauxhall Corsa style car and it didn't put us off exploring all the hidden coves and views etc.
We would have no hesitation in recommending the Flour Cask Bay Retreat for a perfect Kangaroo Island experience.

Greeted by the hosts who produced a bottle of wine and told us of a beautiful spot overlooking the ocean where we could go and enjoy the local wine and scenery. Wife cooked us a wonderful meal and delivered it to our room. She is a chef and worked in London.
