David and I found heaven on earth at Sky House. We loved it so much, we wished we could stay there for the rest of our lives. It's immediately welcoming and feels like home. The interiors are stunning, the bed is pure luxury, the magnificent bath is divinely decadent, the views are truly majestic.
A magical hideaway which is utterly secluded, you feel like the only two alive, except perhaps for the soaring eagles overhead. As you wind up the hill 2km from Snellings Beach you feel instantly serene. David and I loved playing all the vinyl records, reading together for hours on the gorgeous red day bed, snuggling up by the fire and drinking in the vistas.
We decided to cook ourselves, so as soon as we arrived on the island, we headed to Kingscote to gather up all our goodies.
When we ventured down to Snellings Beach each day, we were the only ones there! We went in Winter so it was a bit chilly for swimming, but it's a really pretty, sheltered beach.
Snelling Beach, North Coast Road, Kangaroo Island, South Australia 5223.
Located 16km off the South Australian coast, Kangaroo Island is a totally different and very pristine world. Australia's third largest island, 145km long and 50km wide, it encompasses 450km of stunning coastline and several parks and reserves, including spectacular 74,000 hectare Flinders Chase National Park. Indeed, over a third of the island is protected and conserved.
Sky House is a magnificent secluded cliff top home in one of the world's great wild island hideaways - Kangaroo Island. Step out of the ordinary and into a world set in altitudes where the ospreys soar in the dangerously romantic Sky House private retreat.
