        Great value! Above all, location is fantastic as Parndana has a grocery store/cafe, petrol, excellent restaurant/bar, & playground all within 500m. Each day we drove out somewhere new & its a great central position to everything. 20-40m drive to explore the Chase (west), Stokes Bay beach (north) , Vivonne/Seal Bay (south). We explore east area on arrival & departure since ferry is in Penneshaw, so couldn't be happier with ease of our itinerary given the location of thia accommodation. All facilities we could hope for, full kitchen, toiletries, iron, 2 pillows per guest, lota of towels & blankets. Super clean. Friendly staff, especially since they fixed an error by Agoda, they accommodated us very well. Thank you!

        K.I. Stay at Parndana”

        This small unit like lodge is essential for short-period of travel, it has everything you need except a common Laundry. The room is clean and well-maintained, but might be too small for people who need some extra space. The location is supposed to be central but we are just unlucky that south-lead Hickmans road is closed for roadworks. There is almost nothing you can buy in the town so be prepared to stock your groceries at Penneshaw IGA or Kingscote Drakes prior to arrival. Overall it is good accommodation for travellers to explore the West (Flinders Chase NP), North (coastal lines) and South (Vivonne bay/Seal bay).

        Hi there Oliver, I am sorry I was not there during your stay. Being a very small business run by myself, this sometime happens, I do remember dropping in a couple of times to greet you but unfortunately we missed each other. Thank you for taking the time to review our property, we do appreciate this.

        とても気さくなオーナー”

        オーナーのスー(SUE)おばさんはとてもフレンドリーなオージー。僕らが南と西海岸を中心に回ってきたことを知ると、North Coast にはぜひ行きなさい。Emu Bayは行かなくてよろしい。ダートは運転できる? Stokes Bay、Sbelling Beach、Western River Coveの3か所を回って2時間だから、飛行機の時間にも十分間に合うよ。この道は水が出たら通れないから気を付けて、などといろいろと教えてくれる。 Parndanaで泊まる人は食料をキングスコートで買ってください。フィシフォリアロッジの目の前にも2つ食料品店があるけれど、若干の野菜と果物しか手に入りません。肉はベーコンのみ。ご注意あれ。

        中规中距,面积较大,设施齐全”

        在袋鼠岛的中部,有客厅,2人住了2房,互不干扰。停车就在门前的院子里。 有洗衣机和干衣机,但注意,洗衣机只收1元的硬币,需要4枚。干衣机收1元和2元的硬币,1元10分钟,衣服较多需要40分钟左右。员工只在上午工作,那时能帮忙换硬币。对面的小超市和连带的简易加油点,傍晚6点就关门了!6点之后想要买生活用品或吃饭,只有到1小时车程的码头附近,那里的饭店比较多,而且不少是开到8点的。所以,要方便,其实应该住在码头附近,而不是岛中。
