Snellings View exceeded our expectations. Fabulously appointed with jaw dropping views! The modern decor was sophisticated and homely, loved the gas fire and chilling on the couch watching the view across Snellings Beach. Highly recommended for couples or small groups of friends.

We spent several amazing nights at Snellings View House. Getting to the house is the hardest part by far, but once there the floor to ceiling views of the ocean, the wallabies, the sheep, the beautiful green pastures, the sunsets, are simply spectacular. My husband and I were there to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and we just couldn't have... More

We spent 2 nights in Snellings view in Feb., 2016, which is the most expensive house we paid during our whole trip. But it 100% worth for the money. The view outside the balcony is fantastic and everything is really new in the apartment, though the telescope was broken already. >_< The apartment is big enough for two families and... More

What a wonderful place! 4 nights was not enough! The location - the facilities - the wildlife and of course the view! I highly recommend this place! Make sure you're up early to take in the sunrise from your bed - and then take in the dose from the back deck!

We were so happy to arrive here at this beautiful house, we stayed in the the East wing. We'd had a pretty bad first night accom experience on KI! So, to arrive and see this view and explore this wonderful house, was just fantastic. It was spotlessly clean, homely and luxurious at the same time. Very spacious, lovely decor and... More

Honestly, I don't write reviews often, but this place is worth writing about. Beautiful location, slightly remote. Amazing flat. Great beds, kitchen, deck and view of the beach. Bring what you need for food, eat at shearling shed down the road and drink a glass of wine as the sun sets and the kangaroos jump by in the field in... More

Words can say how nice this place is. You pay a lot, but also get value for money, a great view in a nice and quite surrounding. I would love to go there again. All was very clean and well organized. I feel privileged and thankful I could visit this place and stay here.

Although we did not stay at Snellings View, we did enjoy Snelling Beach. It is a wonderful place to go swimming, enjoy the surf, and just relax for several hours. You can either park in the carpark or drive your vehicle right down onto the beach. The beach front is expansive so you can get away from other people enjoying... More

Just spend a 4 night getaway in the east wing. This place really is perfection! The view was breathtaking and it was truly special to be able to wake up and see it from the bed as easily as the living/kitchen and deck.

Lovely place to visit on the off season. THERE IS NO AIR CON! So you will be very very hot and uncomfortable, WITH FLYS! In the summer. THERE IS NO WAY TO COOL DOWN! And it's REALLY REALLY HORRIBLE! Otherwise this is a beautiful place, but ruined by the lack of air con! You've been warned!
