“best holiday house ever”
Reviewed 30 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

My family and I stayed Millpond for our summer holiday in Kangaroo Island. We were pleasantly surprised how well it's prepared - location is awesome (great view and easy/close access to beach), kitchen is just great (I think you may find nearly all tools for your cooking which food you want to make), cleanness is perfect, beds are comfortable, etc. We want to recommend Millpond in Penneshaw absolutely if you are thinking visiting Kangaroo Island.

Great property. Everything that opens and closes. Home from home. Couldn't do better on KI. You can walk to the beach in 2 minutes, do the hillside walks. easy to visit the rest of KI by car and nice to have somewhere very comfortable to return to.

“Relaxing & Comfy”
Reviewed 16 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I stayed at Millpond with my parents while we explored KI remarkable wildlife and its unspoilt, natural environment in late October this year. Eddie was very responsive from the moment I contacted him and staying Millpond was perfect. Its exactly as the photos had shown, clean & tidy, with gorgeous view ..... but what Eddie had failed to mentioned was amazing range of kitchen utilises he had available for us to cook and indulge in the delicious seafood KI has to offer.

When I stayed in Penneshaw 30 yrs ago the only accommodation on offer were old shacks with basic amenities. Millpond is the opposite, you cant go wrong.
