We stay in lots of small inns and B&Bs during our travels. But Stranraer Homestead is the best B&B we have stayed in. Lynn met us at the airport and we followed her to the Homestead where she served us tea & biscuits on the porch and helped us plan our day. The house is exquisite with a long family...

After touring all day and being exhausted we were brought to a dream home. Meeting us at the fate was a lovely, charming lady, Lynn, with a beautiful smile. My wife and I fell in love with Stranraer before we were inside. Then we went into a fantastic home and felt so welcome. So beautifully appointed. Our suite was perfect....

My wife and I travel extensively, but every so often you come across a special place. The Stranraer is over 100 years old and truly gives you the feel of what a ranch (station) house was like in the early days of Australia without sacrificing your comfort. Not easy to do. It is in the middle of an immense, still...

You must stay here! Wonderful accommodations, Lyn & Graham are the perfect hosts! When my boyfriend suggested staying on a sheep farm, I was wary. But Stranraer turned out to be one that best places we had stayed - anywhere! I could not find one thing to improve. The house was beautiful, comfortable, nicely decorated with warmth and charm. The...

We were treated so well by these very experienced hosts who went the extra mile in providing for our needs. Our accommodation was superior as we were treated to their stand alone cottage behind the homestead, usually reserved for their family. It was beautifully decorated and up to date, very spacious, quiet, with modern equipment. Only lacked Wifi, but they...

We have just spent two days on Kangaroo Island and one of the highlights of our visit was definitely Stranraer. The property is immaculate and the hosts Lyn and Graham are fabulous. Dinner was excellent but breakfast was amazing. Don't fill up on the lush Bircher muesli, fruit salad, pancakes or muffins as there is more to come when Lyn...

Lynn and Graham were amazing, we had 2 young boys who loved their dog Rosie, and loved the tour of the farm with Graham on his ATV. A special place, and a chance to learn about the history, heritage and working culture of the farm and the island. Much much better than any hotel. A rare chance to immerse yourself...
