Cheap Luxury , Beautiful! it has everything that you need. It was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. There is complimentary WiFi with good speed. It is centrally located for attraction around the centre & western end of KI. I would have no problem recommending this accommodation to friends.

Situated in the very sleepy Pardana the lodge is central to everything. It's not new but excellently maintained and well designed with comfy couches, fast free wifi and good heating. The kitchen is well set up and well stocked and after 10pm we didn't hear a sound. It may have helped we were the only guests and it was a...

I cannot recommend this place highly enough as a half way stop whilst exploring the island from Flinders Chase back to Penneshaw. The units are brand new, very modern, spotless clean. The beds were comfortable and with very warm duvet. The service was friendly and efficient. There are some convenience stores and a bottle shop within walking distance.

Ficifolia Lodge is a small property consisting of 4 self service cabins & run by Sue, the owner. I made my booking on line & received a confirmation e-mail giving information about Parndana & how to access my key in a key safe next to the door. The 2 bedroom unit is compact & has everything that you need. It...

This motel, is just lovely, not for the people who want absolutely luxury, but for people who like to feel like they are home, beds great everything is spotless, not big but adeqate. There was only two of us, so we had the 2nd bedroom to put all of our luggage, which does make a difference of course, but we...

We could not have been happier with our 2 night stay. The 2 bedroom apartment was well appointed with plenty of space and everything you'd need from an apartment. Being central to most of Kangaroo Island's tourist spots is great for short or long stays. Also being straight across the road from the local takeaway and small supermarket makes it...

If you like glitz and glitter, a fancy lobby, and the look of a city hotel, then this is not the place for you. If however, you want a place that is safe, clean, comfortable, and feels like a well-maintained home with a good friend nearby, this is it. One would be hard-pressed to find a better proprietor than Sue....

We elected to stay here as we were visiting family nearby - the chalet was impeccably clean, well presented, laid out and thoughtfully equipped - we needed for nothing. Sue, the Owner Manager was most welcoming, helpful and informative. Price was fair for Australian rates. It was about 70k from Penneshaw Ferry Terminal and 60k to Kingscote but gave ease...

Ficifolia is not for those looking for a standard "hotel" stay but more for someone looking for a small apartment with pretty much all the amenities of home for a stay. We didn't really know what to expect when booking this place. Kangeroo Island has limited accommodation and everything is spread out. We were mostly interested in day trips on...
