Modern self-contained 2-bedroom home in a bush setting close to the beach
I am a retired rocket scientist (yes really) and along with my wife, operate Island Time and another holiday house at Vivonne Bay on the south coast of Kangaroo Island. We visit frequently to maintain and improve our properties for guest use, and to enjoy the tranquillity, scenery and wildlife offered by the island. Favourite travel destinations in addition to Kangaroo Island are remote places such as the Arctic, Antarctica, Patagonia and the Australian Outback. Favourite music is the repertoire of Fiona Joy Hawkins, an amazing Australian composer, pianist and vocalist.
Ian purchased this House in 2014
Why Ian chose Vivonne Bay
We first travelled to Kangaroo Island in 2014. Our travel agent booked us into a cosy and modern holiday house at Vivonne Bay called Island Time. We loved the house, and found to our surprise on returning home that it was for sale. So our first trip to KI became our most expensive holiday ever. We have since enjoyed numerous stays at Island Time and have grown to love Vivonne Bay and especially the spectacular setting and pristine beach.

A well equipped beach house in beautiful Vivonne Bay
Island Time is in a great location, overlooking coastal bush and just a short walk to the beach. The house was spotless, and is very well equipped. The beach at Vivonne Bay is beautiful, and it is an easy drive to the Flinders Chase National Park at the west end of the island.
Our sincere thanks Anthea for your lovely comments. We have forwarded your remarks to our caretaker who is meticulous with cleaning. Trust you enjoyed our new stove and coffee machine installed in August. As you say, Vivonne Bay is a perfect base for exploring the western part of KI. Thanks again & warm regards, Ann & Ian
A home away from home!
Island Time had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. A great central location for day tripping and fishing.
Many thanks for your appreciative comments Brenda. We love staying at Island Time ourselves. Hope you had visits from our resident wallabies - and that you can enjoy another stay at our home-away-from-home.
Best wishes, Ann & Ian
Super Haus mit allabendlichem Wallaby-Besuch
Wir fanden ein großzügig modern eingerichtetes Haus vor. Das von uns benutze Bett war groß und sehr bequem, sogar mit einer Matrazen-Heizdecke ausgestattet.
In der sehr gut sortierten Küche fanden wir einen hochwertigen Kaffeeautomaten ( Expressomaschine?)vor, zu dem im Kühlschrank das Kaffepulver bereit gestellt war.
Alles war sauber und gepflgt.
Neben der Terasse standen zwei Wasserbecken, die sowohl Vögel alls auch Kängurus anlockten.
Alles in allem ein liebevoll eingerichtetes Haus, mit dem der Besitzer seine Gäste mehr als zufrieden stellt. Wir haben die Tage sehr genossen und konnten auf Grund der zentralen Lage die Insel sehr gut erkunden. Der Kontakt zu dem Vermieter war sehr freundlich, er zeigte sich sehr hilfsbereit.
Sollten wir wiederkommen, würden wir das Haus gerne noch eimal nehmen.
Sincere thanks Tim for your 5-star review. Must admit that we needed a little help from Google Translate to fully appreciate your comments! Very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Island Time, including the facilities, cleanliness and central location. Also wallabies visiting in the evenings and birds making good use of our birdbaths. We love the local wildlife too. Warm regards, Ann & Ian
Island Time is located just a few minute's walk to pristine Vivonne Bay beach. The house is in a bush setting with a lovely view across a wooded valley.
