ROMANTIC GETAWAY OR PRIVATE RETREAT
Serenity Cottage – one of the quaintest cottages in the peaceful hamlet of Vivonne Bay, certainly lives up to its name!
A serene, coastal hideaway that’s conveniently located with easy access to all of Kangaroo Island’s most popular south and west coast attractions.
Clean, bright and beautifully decorated – Serenity Cottage provides a tree-top couple’s retreat nestled in a bush setting and is located only 450m from the beach voted “Australia’s best!”
This cute and quirky one bedroom renovated cottage provides a relaxed environment for lovers of nature, wildlife and beaches.
A remote destination that refreshes the soul and allows you to reconnect with what is truly important.
A 5 MINUTE STROLL TO SECLUDED VIVONNE BAY – VOTED AUSTRALIA’S BEST BEACH
Just a five minute stroll to the crystal clear, turquoise waters of Vivonne Bay and its stunning, long, white, sandy beach – a superb site for picnics, beachcombing, surfing, fishing or just taking a stroll along the beach or esplanade to take in the majestic scenery. Fishing from the jetty, beach, boat or nearby Harriet River mouth is excellent.
GET BACK TO NATURE. UNTOUCHED SAND ON UNCROWDED BEACHES
Kangaroo Island is like a zoo without walls. A pristine wilderness offering protection to substantial populations of native Australian animals. An island of extraordinary natural scenic beauty and the ideal place to escape, relax and unwind.
IDEAL BASE TO EXPLORE THE SOUTH COAST
Vivonne Bay is centrally located on the South Coast of the island providing easy access via sealed roads to Kangaroo Island’s most popular natural attractions. Serenity Cottage is an ideal base to explore Seal Bay, Kelly Hill Caves, Flinders Chase National Park, Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch – and is no more than an hour and a quarter’s drive to anywhere on the island.
Other nearby attractions well worth a visit include: Raptor Domain (Birds of Prey & Fang-tastic); Rustic Blue Gallery & Cafe; Andermel Marron (marron farm, restaurant and cellar door) and Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary.
Local business, KI Outdoor Action offers Quad Bike Guided Tours for both beginners and experienced riders. The best way to see an otherwise inaccessible part of Kangaroo Island. Their ‘Wildlife Dusk Tour’ guarantees you will see kangaroos up close in their natural environment – a highlight for anyone visiting the island.
Single or Double Kayaks are also available for hire. Paddle up to five kilometres of the calm and meandering Harriet River with a variety of birds and other wildlife. Relax as you enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Hit the slopes at Little Sahara with a sandboard or toboggan. A system of naturally occurring giant sand dunes. A steep climb to the top but the views are magic!
The one bedroom renovated cottage sleeps two guests and provides a relaxed environment – ideal for a romantic getaway, a private retreat for one, or two close friends/family members travelling together.
The cosy bedroom has a queen size bed, with comfortable quilts and an electric blanket for the cooler season.
Serenity Cottage has a light filled, open plan kitchen / dining / living area with high cathedral ceilings and north-facing picture windows all around that draw the peaceful ambience inside.
A large, curved, stone-wall deck extends off the living area with easy access via french doors. This elevated, tree-top alfresco area is an ideal spot for a barbecue or outdoor dining.
The front verandah overlooks the garden and provides another spot to sit and enjoy the tranquility. There is plenty of bird life to watch and opportunities to spot possums and wallabies in the garden – especially at dusk.
The distinctive grey building with red front door and dry stone walling is quite unique. Inside the cottage has a bright, clean, fresh, relaxed, modern beach house feel. It has recently been lovingly decorated with lots of homely and quirky touches that add charm and immediate appeal.
The contemporary and fully equipped kitchen provides ample cupboard space, a full size fridge/freezer, oven/grill, cooktop, microwave, kettle & toaster – and all the cutlery, crockery, baking and cookware you could possibly need for a self-catered vacation for either a short or long stay.
Opposite the bedroom is a combined bathroom/shower/laundry.
A laundry tub, dryer & ironing facilities are provided.
(Note: No washing machine. Rain water only)
The toilet is located at the rear of the building.
Stay cool in summer and warm in winter. Heating and cooling is provided via a wall mounted, reverse-cycle air conditioner located in the open plan living area.
