          Acceptable”

          We received no advice prior to arriving that the place would be unattended (for at least a week - next to our keys, we found someone else's for 7 days hence. The notice on where to collect keys in their absence was only noticed after we played it by ear to find them. Absent staff is fine, but notice of what to do would have been helpful as we assumed arrival before 5pm would guarantee someone being there. Worse, we were freezing. The weather wasn't their fault, but a light doona was all there was - no spare blankets anywhere to be found. As we swept after ourselves on departure, we collected various bits of other people's detritus - hairbands, pasta... Pots and pans for self-catered were also seriously lacking, and knives were blunt. Thank goodness we always travel with one of our own. Very disappointing for the price paid. The saving grace was it was where we needed it to be...

          Stay at seal bay cottage was absolutely one of my favorite time in KI! The host were very nice. The cabin itself is equipped with only basics but you are not gonna stay in the cabin anyway so that was no problem for us. Roo burger at the cafe was also very tasty! Close to little Sahara and seal bay. Highly recommended!

          At first I was worried when I booked this accomodation as it had had some poor reviews. However, the facilities were exactly as described by the owners. If you want 5 star accomodation, then don't stay here. If you want a place to sleep and unwind at the end of a day experiencing wonderful KI then this is a great spot. The cabin was roomy, there was plenty of hot water, and the staff were pleasant (although granted we didn't need to converse with them all that much)!

          location, owner, room

          At my arrival I lock myself out of my car and the owner call road service and get everything fixed in one hour. That considering that it was more than 8pm in an "outback" location in Australia. Cabin was big and clean. It even had a cradle (not that I was using). Accommodation is really close to seal bay center, so you can get there to join the first tour and you would be almost alone with the guide. We were 3 people. But thing, Vodafone network in the area is null.

          out of power on a hot day. no fan. no enough water pressure for a decent shower. no one came to explain till late evening and when the friendly manager did, she only offered to bring some drinking water. i understand that there's not much to be done but it was a tough stay. btw, no air-conditioning in the cabin - overlooked that when making the booking.
