HEADLAND LODGE - KANGAROO ISLAND
About Headland Lodge
Our 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom eco-lodge provides the independent traveller with a 'home away from home', for those wishing for a fully contained, self-catered getaway. Perched above the secluded Kangaroo Beach Cove on the western side of Kangaroo Island, you'll enjoy uninterrupted coastal views, wildlife at play and a pristine private beach.
Headland lodge was designed by award-winning architects Troppo, whose focus on sustainability has enabled us to make the most of the unique location of the lodge to provide cooling/heating. In the warmer months, the large breezeway and the carefully placed windows can be opened to draw cool breezes through the house and there are ceiling fans in each room. In winter, the wood stove can be fired up (no pun intended) and the heat produced is plumbed to the radiators in the bedrooms and towel rails in the bathrooms.
We provide all bed linen, bath towels and beach towels. Some toiletries are provided.
All crockery, cutlery, glassware, cooking utensils, pots and pans provided.
Standard pantry items;

There is a Nespresso coffee machine available in your lodge so you are welcome to bring along your own coffee pods to use (original style).
There is a TV in the lounge with basic channels (no streaming). A DVD player and a small selection of movies are provided.
Bose Sound Touch Bluetooth sound system in the living area and a Sony Mini sound system with iPhone cord connection the breezeway.
Wi-Fi Internet service provided for browsing and emailing only, no media upload or download. The Internet speed is the best on offer in regional Australia, which may be slower than you are used to.
Some books, board games and puzzles are provided.
PLEASE NOTE: Headland lodge is holiday rental accommodation only - it is not serviced accommodation and no concierge service is provided. No meals or transport/transfers are provided. The caretaker lives on the property to provide security as this is private land, and they are only to be contacted in case of an emergency (ie electricity supply problem, water not running etc).
The roads on the property surrounding Headland on Kangaroo Beach are negotiable with a 2WD vehicle, however we do recommend bringing a 4WD where possible (winter months in particular). We also suggest guests bring with them good walking shoes if they wish to walk down to the beach. It's not far, but the small hill can be tricky to negotiate. Alternatively, there is a 4WD track to the beach (note: accessible by 4WD vehicles only).
In the best interest of guest safety, we do not recommend driving across the island after 4pm during the winter months (June-August) due to the abundant wildlife on the roads from dusk onward. If you are arriving on the island after 4pm, we would recommend organising accommodation close to your point of arrival for your first night, then travelling across the island the following day.
