Family-run and hosted by locals Tim and Tamsin Wendt, Oceanview Eco Villas rests upon 500 acres of clifftop farmland overlooking Nepean Bay on beautiful Kangaroo Island. Located mere minutes from American River and 20 minutes’ drive from Kingscote Airport, this property offers two eco-luxury villas each with two bedrooms and ensuites, offering a relaxing stay in comfortable solitude within the natural environment.
With your hosts’ family homestead only minutes away, guests will be immersed into nature at its most serene, enjoying exclusive access to a private beach and sheep-grazing farmland emblazoned with walking trails, with the surrounding habitat bringing wallabies, kangaroos, and the occasional echidna ambling right past your bedroom window.
Committed to self-sustainability and eco-friendly principles, Oceanview harvests rainwater and runs on a hybrid renewable power system of battery-powered solar energy. Built with locally sourced, sustainable supplies and recycled materials, the villas’ polished and timeless design combine luxury and comfort in renewable five-star accommodation.
Fully hosted with full course dinners, breakfasts, and drinks showcasing local produce, Oceanview has quickly established itself as one of the finest luxury stays available on Kangaroo Island.
Kangaroo Island is famous for its abundant wildlife and natural beauty. Covering almost 4500 sq. km, a third of which is conservation land, the island is relatively free of feral species, allowing endemic animal and bird populations to thrive. See koalas in millennia-old native forests, walk among sea lions on pristine white-sand beaches, dive historic wrecks to see the famous Leafy Sea Dragon, watch Ospreys wheeling over rocky headlands, and much more.
The surrounding rich farmland and fertile seas have supported the spirited island communities that are rich in history, culture and cuisine. The passions of the local thriving art communities, wine growers, and artisan food producers help complete this extraordinary off-shore escape.
Nestled atop the beautiful Redbanks cliffs overlooking Nepean Bay, Oceanview Eco Villa is designed with relaxation in mind. Explore the beautiful property’s trails and beach walks, and immerse yourself into Kangaroo Island’s tranquillity while keeping your eye out for native wildlife and birdlife singing from the treetops.
Due to the remote location of this property, touring around the island is best experienced on a private basis. Our preferred touring partner is Exceptional Kangaroo Island who offer expeditions into the region’s major attractions, discovering the Island’s food and wine, unique flora and fauna, and natural icons such as Flinders Chase National Park.
Your stay at Oceanview Eco Villas comes inclusive of fully-cooked breakfast and three-course dinners prepared by a private chef with local produce, enjoyed either in the privacy and comfort of your own villa, or as a hosted dinner in the nearby family homestead with your hosts. Each meal is accompanied by a range of refreshments, including premium Kangaroo Island and South Australian wines.
Kangaroo Island is renowned for its wonderful food and wine and established producer scene, best discovered with insider access and local touring with Exceptional Kangaroo Island. Wineries and distilleries offering different island flavours exist within easy touring distance of your accommodation and can be included as part of a customised journey, while Exceptional Kangaroo Island’s Fine Flavours day tour provides opportunity to explore behind the scenes at a range of artisan Kangaroo Island producers specialising in oysters, honey, oils, and more. Alongside the wonderful casual lunch options available across the island, hosted culinary experiences form an integral part of a memorable Kangaroo Island adventure.
