“What a great place to stay”
Reviewed 11 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

A home away from home. CBC has all you could need and more for a stay on wonderful Kangaroo Island. The cottage is fully equiped with all you could possibly want to make your stay an enjoyable and relaxing one.
We also had some problems with the ferry being delayed for two days after our departure date and the CBC management we very helpful in extending our stay with a minimum of fuss.
Highly recommend you consider a stay at CBC!

“Warm cosy very comfortable just like home away from home”
Reviewed 2 April 2012 for a stay in March 2012

The minute we walk into the house we felt so comfortable and immediately feel like we r at home. It was very clean and has everything we needed. Location was also very good. Away from town but close enough to take a nice stroll in the evening. The view from the house is uninterrupted and lovely to watch the ferries coming in and out from the pier. There is an orange tree at the back and we helped ourselves and it was so sweet and juicy. Thank you very much. Our overseas friends just could not stop telling everyone when we return to Adelaide.! Already telling my friends how good value Charlie Bates accomodation is and the picture on the website is how it is too.
