Panoramic Views of Kangaroo Beach Cove on Kangaroo Island
One of the three Kangaroo Beach Lodges built in 2010 on De Mole River Farm, FIDES sits among eight thousand acres of diverse land on the northwestern edge of Kangaroo Island. Thanks to a successful revegetation program much of the area remains under native vegetation, and includes seven kilometeres of stunning sea frontage. FIDES looks down Kangaroo Gully to pristine Kangaroo Beach, a secluded stretch of sand looking north across Spencer Gulf. This fantastic location and the modern design of the villa itself combine to strike a fine balance between isolation and civilisation.
The villa's layout allows for intimate couples' stays, while an expansion wing containing additional bedrooms and bathrooms facilitates larger groups, ensuring comfort for everyone. Each of the king beds can be configured as two single beds, and an additional stretcher bed can also be provided for a fee. Modern kitchen facilities allow for gourmet meal preparation. A wood stove in the lounge provides ambiance while a hydronic heating system warms not only the lounge but the bedrooms and bathroom towel rails as well. Floor to ceiling windows throughout the property place you firmly overlooking the gully, out to the horizon along the sea. Ceiling fans in every room ensure the air moves during the warmer season. From the taps run clear, clean rainwater collected on site.
At FIDES the majesty of Kangaroo Island is your backyard. Your neighbors will be goannas and koalas, eagles, kangaroos and the black glossy cockatoo. Access to the beach is provided by 4WD track or a pathway down the hillside, and the villa is well-equipped with useful amenities for beach combers. You may wish to try your hand at fishing from the rocks for flathead, mullet or salmon, so pack a rod and lure. Those with an inclination to climb will discover the view from the ridge is sublime.
Kangaroo Island's Flinders Chase National Park, Remarkable Rocks, Admirals Arch, the Cape Borda Lighthouse, and several bush walking trails are close at hand, making FIDES ideal for excursions to explore the island.
