“Sensational!”
Reviewed 5 October 2011

We travelled to Kangaroo Island with close friends for a 4 day long weekend. I had originally come across a brief article in a magazine which included a small photo of that stunning view. Quite often when looking for holiday accommodation, the reality does not live up to the promise. This was NOT the case with Snellings View. To the contrary, it exceeded our expectations. We hired the west wing which was perfect accommodation for 2 couples. The kitchen was magnificently equipped, which made our self catering holiday and absolute delight. It was lovely to see such a quality fit-out — that solid timber dining table is just gorgeous! We loved the quiet and isolation and were delighted to find wildlife close to the house — a Koala with a baby in one of the trees and an oblivious echidna rummaging through the grass. We could have easily stayed for another week. I would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for a luxuriously relaxing holiday. Perfect for a family holiday or a getaway with 1 or 3 other couples — both wings accommodate 4 couples perfectly!

Room Tip: They are all perfect!

We rented the west wing of this house for our 3 day trip to Kangaroo Island. It was the perfect choice for our family of four (we also looked at KIWR but the rooms for 4 have nothing on this place). I can't imagine where you could get a better view and really there is no need to go to Flinders Chase for kangaroos and koalas as they are right in the yard. Treat yourself and arrange to have dinner delivered to you one night (see Snellings View website).

I recently had 10 days holiday with my extended family st Snellings view.We had a wonderful time .The weather was beautiful, the accomodation fantastic and the beach devine.The house was perfect for the whole extended family as everyone had plenty of privacy and space .I would certainly recommend this for a family or group of friends.
We had mamy memorable meals on the balcony soaking up the amazing views of the coastine out to the horizon. The stars at night were also wonderful.
The sounds of the sea and moonlight views from the bedrooms was also very special .The privacy and isolation of this setting is un surpassed.
Snelling view is well located to see all thetourist sights of the island but it is great to just relax and swim

This is a gorgeous cottage. Just check the photos. Everything is very modern and the view is magnificent. Be prepared for rough dirt roads and long drives, though.

Wish I could have stayed a few more days!

As guests of our familiy in Adelaide we were invited to join them for a weekend Kangaroo Island. We stayed at Snellings View with 10 adults and it was amazing. The whole weekend was fabulous because of the nice company, but the whole setting and decoration of the house made it complete and luxery! Everything was big, clean & beautiful in line with its surroundings. It was a more than a pleasure!. The view was amazing and the wildlife and beaches made it all a very special memory for us Dutchies. If it would have been possible to throw away the keys, this would have been my moment! I would have gladly been punished with a longer stay!
For everyone who wants a special moment with his loved ones, this is the place!

Room Tip: For comfort and luxary !

Unfortunately we could stay there only two nights, but we certainly come back!!
Hard to explain the feeling of peace and prosperity that this place offers: two perfect things are combined perfectly in Snelling View, an astonishing, unspoiled location with a breathtaking view and a special attention the owner has put in every details of the house to make you very comfortable and happy, so you feel privileged to be there!

I have worked in tourism for over 20 years & have been lucky enough to stay at some pretty amazing places. I am pleased to report that we chose Snellings View to have a holiday with friends for a week & the accommodation there was as good as anywhere we have stayed around the world! The view, the house, the decor....all fantastic. Every detail has been thoughtfully considered to ensure a perfect holiday! The beautiful, unspoilt surroundings offer a wonderful opportunity to rest & relax! We WILL return. Thank You Snellings View!! Jayne Warnock, Time Brokers
