We took our grandkids to KI for the last week of the school holidays and we all had the most amazing time our host Deidre was very friendly and always helpful as was all her staff but what we all appreciated was the most amazing heated swimming pool and spa which we put to good use after each day of exploring the Island and I loved the beautiful gardens and surrounds.Thanks Deidre and staff.Lyn and Les.

Thank you for your review. I love it when families come and can really relax and enjoy time together. The pool really is a draw card, and I'm so glad you all enjoyed this at Acacia.
I love it when my children and grandchildren visit too, and they too enjoy cooking and baking together followed by swims most days.
Kangaroo Island is such a lovely place, isnt it? It was really nice to have you all stay at Acacia.

The apartments are large but need some attention. They are very dated but would not take alot to at least strip off 10 to 15 years or so. Need to update the linens. Get rid of the coloured and florals for bedding, go to good quality whites. Get rid of the blankets and bedspreads, people expect nice fresh clean bedding, blankets etc DONT cut it any more. Use quilts with either quilt covers or sheets encasing them.
We stay in alot of apartments around the country and I have never checked in to find used scorers and dish cloth's before, this is unacceptable. Sinks should be cleaned, with a cream cleanser, not just wiped or dried over. i just cleaned it with dish liquid and it was shining! The kitchen and bathroom, as well as the unit tiled floors could have been cleaner, not hard to do.
Could be updated too by removing all the very old fashioned curtains (1980's English style florals etc) double blinds would work well. We were glad it was not too cold whilst there as we only has one small air con which really struggled to keep the chill off when it wasn't really all that cold.
We were expecting better following the earlier reviews on this property, I could forgive the fact that the property is dated but for the cleanliness not being what it should/could.

Thank you for your thoughts. I am glad that you enjoyed the roomy apartments
Yes, we do have Rosewood linen, which is a cottage pattern, but quite classical. I too have stayed at some places which have a blanket, cotton weave or quilt encased in sheets, and it is modern, but on asking many guests, the great majority said they prefer the blankets and bedspreads, and electric blankets. All bedding is clean. We wash blankets and bedspreads, and ensure that each apartment is clean. I understand that you may have found that someone had not used a product to shine the sink well enough, but each sink is properly cleaned and cloth polished . Each floor is vacuumed and mopped every time we clean and re-set the apartment. The floor tiles do not have a high polish, chosen for a natural look and safety. Acacia is New Federation style, really, and is 19 years old. I like all white, as well, but we do use the Rosewood by choice. The curtains and pelmets ensure almost total blackout if customers choose to sleep in, or rest during the day.That too was a choice to allow proper rest if on a well earned break :)

We also provide a lounge suite and dining suite and fully equipped kitchens, as convenience and comfort are there to enhance your holiday. I trust you enjoyed your tour around our lovely Island. Thank you again

Very good standard accommodation by any standard - spacious, clean (tho somewhat dated given the price point) and with all facilities including an indoor heated pool. In balancing this view it needs to be observed that this accomm., (like all K.I. accomm. is ludicrously over-priced and over-rated). Rates are at least double that of equivalent accomm. on the mainland and the considerable ferry cost - $190 return for vehicle and 2 people - has to be added to these exorbitant costs. It seems that SeaLink ferries controls all aspects of the holiday $ on Kangaroo Island and it exploits the tourist $ to the maximum. This exploitation extends to giving clearly incorrect information about the availability of accommodation order to influence purchase and justify very high prices. SeaLink monopoly needs competition and exposure.

The room was large, clean and well appointed. Caught up with the laundry but missed out on a swim (our fault). Would have preferred an outlook but this accommodation is still above average. Quiet (in Oct). No issues
