“Pure Magic - true wilderness”
Reviewed 20 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

A slice of true wilderness, simply superb ocean views and a very comfortable eco friendly house. From the moment we hit the track in, we knew this would be a really special adventure and a real privilege to have our very own exclusive part of the wild coast overlooking the southern ocean. Wish we'd booked more than 3 nights ! Our RAV4 handled the track no worries.

Thank you for your kind words. Cape Hart Wilderness Retreat is very special - not only the house and environs, but as you say 'A slice of true wilderness, simply superb ocean views' Recently adding a second bedroom and bathroom has increased the number of visitors who can enjoy this very special piece of Kangaroo Island.

“Simply Serenity”
Reviewed 30 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Cape Hart Wilderness Retreat was very unique and nothing like we had stayed in ever before. You feel like you are totally away from the rest of the world and a great place to rest, recharge and relax. This is a place I would recommend to friends.
We stayed for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time at Cape Hart. The accomodation and ammenities where simple, but great and very comfortable with endless ocean views - you also get to experience a wide range of wildlife including kangaroos.
The only recommendation would be to make sure you have a suitable car to navigate the bush track to get to the retreat. This is a 9km bush track, off a dirt road, that really requires a 4WD. We managed to do it in a Commodore but is a very slow drive when you want to go and explore.
Overall a great break, at a great location, that certainly refreshed us both.

“Panoramic ocean wilderness paradise escape”
Reviewed 4 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had the most relaxing holiday exploring this enormous wildlife reserve. The ocean views were amazing, especially marvelling at the stairway effect of the moon rising over the southern ocean each night. There are walking tracks throughout the expansive private wilderness and tasteful signposted points of interest. The private seal colony was a real treat and we were careful not to disturb the beautiful creatures in their natural habbitat. We loved our evening walks spotting kangaroos, wallabies and echidnas. Also during the day the eagles soaring above were majestic. The house itself was very cosy and fully equipped. We'll definitely return for another stay.

“Views wildlife ocean”
Reviewed 10 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Ocean as far as you can see, wonderful bush setting, seal beach the closest I have ever been to seals and if you move slowly they become used to you. Will definitely be back. Access road is very interesting, do not attempt this road in a normal vehicle, our Jeep Compass handled it fine. Small SUV or 4wd needed. Watching seals and dolphins feeding every day. Another holiday we will never forget. Come to stay you will not be disappointed.

Thank you - set high on the hill with views of the mainland, we love sitting on the verandah watching the magnificent sea birds glide by - simply magical, and we love to be able to give our visitors the same opportunity
