Interaction with Guests

Your space is your own, and privacy is a huge component of our service so we do not have a check in or greeting service. We're a phone call away if you require some assistance, but you can go your entire stay without setting eyes on us or other guests should you choose!

The Neighbourhood

Due to the islands natural assets and wilderness, there are limited restaurants near us. Our catering partners , Kangaroo Island Source. Chef and owner, Kate Sumner will personally host and manage our catering and dining experiences showcasing the very best of our island produce and wines. As Kate has worked with our family and venues for many years she is able to bring a personalised and authentic approach that includes great local knowledge of our area and our own family history. but they must be BOOKED BEFORE YOU ARRIVE.

The nearest town from LifeTime is Parndana (limited supplies, ok for basics) items can be bought on the way out to LifeTime.

If coming from the ferry you can buy supplies from Penneshaw but remember its a 1.5-2hr drive to us so we advise you buy supplies from Kingscote on the way through (10min diversion)

Kingscote is 10min from the airport and the main supermarket is Drakes.
