We enjoyed three-nights staying at Island Chalet. Very well-presented accommodation and plenty of space for five of us. My children loved the garden space. The chalet is within easy reach of the beach and a short drive to shops and restaurants. A great location for...More

About the neighbourhood
The area is rural with natural bush along the foreshore. A beautiful 3km walk along the foreshore takes you into town, but it is unlit, so not easy to use at night. The beach has a number of resident shorebirds such as pelicans, oyster catchers and black swans. There is a supermarket, two galleries and cafes in Kingscote, and a golf course about 0.8 km south from the Chalet. Further on from Kingscote is Reeves Point, a historic site with picnic areas and a sand spit, often covered in shorebirds. From the Flagstaff at the top of the hill you get spectacular views,
