Our off grid eco house is nestled amongst the native mallee forest with views of the calm Bay of Shoals waters. Designed to fit in with the peaceful landscape, wild life is right at the door step and the house situated on 5 acre native bush property with privacy in mind. Astonishingly, it is just 5 minutes drive to Kingscote that has cafes, restaurants, pubs and supermarket. A large deck is the perfect spot to relax with a drink while wallabies, kangaroos, echidnas and birdlife pass by.

We spent 3 lovely Days in Mallee Bark. The house is well equipped with wood fired oven, washing machine, fast Wifi and cooking utensils. It was nice meeting Simon personally (thanks for the broccoli!). We would highly recommend the house to everyone visiting KI.

Loved staying here! All the comforts of home in a quiet and peaceful location. Not on the grid but you wouldn’t know it, there is every home comfort that you would need. I don’t think that I’ve ever stayed in a more peaceful, relaxing location. I was surprised given the ‘remote’…

Simon's place is a truly unique experience. A lovely off-grid experience for those who are interested in the eco lifestyle and who don't require all of the mod-cons. Although it feels you are miles from anywhere, Simon's place is very close to all that Kingscote has to offer, but…

A perfect and peaceful location yet only 5 mins drive to Kingscote. Spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The deck was a great outdoor space for relaxing. A little paradise on Kangaroo island. Thanks so much!
