EXCLUSIVE BEACHFRONT LUXURY ACCOMMODATION

SOUTH AUSTRALIA'S KANGAROO ISLAND

Kangaroo Island, just 16 kilometres off the South Australia's southern coast, is one of Australia's most enchanting natural wilderness destinations. Specializing in hand crafted luxury accommodation, Life Time Private Retreats offers five spectacular holiday houses – The Sky House, The Cliff House, The Settlers Homestead, Sheoaks & our new Beach Retreat where you have the option to stay at our in House Only Accommodation or our all-inclusive House and Dining package.

Each of our private houses are nestled in stunning coastal locations of natural beauty and have been lovingly renovated by three generations of the Holden and Hannaford family whose origins have evolved from leading restaurants, special events and entertaining.

Important note about our Snellings Beach area:
A localised fire burnt through the Snellings beach area in early Feb 2018 where are our properties are situated. Although our private retreats were untouched (and now have improved views!), the surrounding landscape and drive into Snellings beach have been affected by the fire. Thankfully, the Australian bush is wonderfully resilient and we are already seeing signs of new growth as dormant seeds start to crack open.
On behalf of the Hannaford family we thank you for your continuing support. Our business activity allows us to help our wider community in the long term rehabilitation of the land around us.

"About the Retreat, I don’t know if I have the words to express how wonderful it is, so beautifully appointed and styled! Amazing attention to detail for functionality, usability and comfort. I could not fault it. And then there was the view!!! And virtually our own beach. I didn’t want to leave, it was heaven and such a credit to you and your staff making it so appealing even after the effects of the recent fire"
