Inside Kangaroo Island’s Oceanview Eco Villas

Few places can deliver a necessary reset like the extraordinary Kangaroo Island.

Against the framework of ordinary that has blanketed life of late, the notion of getting away, of genuinely escaping the day-to-day to find slivers of remote solace, has never before held such firm appeal.

And few places can deliver a necessary reset like the extraordinary Kangaroo Island—specifically, the accessible luxury on offer at Oceanview Eco Villas.

Set on 500-acres of lush rural land, nestled atop a kilometre of stunning Kangaroo Island coastline known as ‘Redbanks’, hosts Tim and Tamsin Wendt are quick to reinforce the offer here—pushing exalted sojourns centred on relaxation and reconnection.

A series of off-grid, eco-designed villas that work on passive solar principles, the accommodation is very much about bringing the outside in; “impossible” and expansive views are captured through large picture windows.

While you can simply sit and ponder, the positioning avails itself to exploration —this being the third largest island off the coast and one proudly known as Australia’s own Galapagos, given its abundance of wildlife.

Enjoy swimming with wild dolphins on an eco-accredited and certified tour, or perhaps a guided walk that takes in a gourmet lunch deep in the wilds. Then there’s the iconic Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch, as well as Seal Bay to view some endangered Australian sea lions.

Such excursions will work up an appetite. Expect to be generously sated at Oceanview Eco Villas with nightly three-course dinners that explore the island via exemplary, fresh local produce, including premium KI wines, and which are also bookended by two-course cooked breakfasts.

With private jet and ground transfers available, it’s time to visit the impressive slice of relaxation and wonder that is Oceanview Eco Villas.
