  • Can you tell me if it is a sealed road all the way from Pennishaw to your property and if it is a windy or hilly road to drive on.
    Hi, The Lookout at Cuttlefish Bay is only just off the bitumen about half a kilometre. Most hire cars are ok with cars driving on dirt roads as long as you drive to the conditions. It is hard to answer if the weather is going to be windy. There is wind most places you travel.Sandy KI

The Lookout At Cuttlefish is a 2 bedroom self contained apartment located on beautiful Kangaroo Island South Australia. It is the only apartment so guest would have the privacy of the whole place to themselves. The owners live on the premises but give guest the privacy they seek. The apartment is surrounded by an amazing established garden. Our guest are encouraged to enjoy the surroundings. It is a bird lovers paradise with many bird species living in the local area. We sight wedgetail eagles, superb fairy wrens, willy wag tails, lorikeets and cockatoos to name a few. The apartment is very comfortable and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The view from the front balcony is stunning of our farm ,Backstairs Passage and the mainland of Australia. Our guest can enjoy the scenery and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. The Lookout is only ten minutes from the ferry terminal and our local town of Penneshaw. Kangaroo Island has many wineries with one only 2 kms up the road from your accommodation.
