          The lighthouse keepers cottages at Cape du Couedic are simply fantastic - it's like being in a weird coastal Western, these heavy cottages with 2-foot thick sandstone walls, surrounded by fur seals, wallabies and scrub. Like nothing and nowhere else, and most definitely recommended! Bring...More

          Hi, I will be traveling in June 2017 to KI and am thinking of staying at the Cape du Couedic lighthouse accommodation. I am worried whether the room and bathroom will be warm enough. I am from Southern California and don't enjoy being cold. Thanks in advance for advice re. this.

          Hi Carol. I'm organising a trip to Kangaroo Island for 8 - 10 friends from March 31st to April 6th next year,2017. I'm thinking of 3 nights atCape du Couedic and then 3 nights at Cape Willoughby. We are a mix of couples and a few singles. The latter are happy to share rooms but will want single beds. Is it too early to book now? Can you explain the bed arrangements in some detail for me please? Thanks, Gwenneth
