Jasmine Room


The Jasmine Room is a deluxe queen room with a beautiful 4 poster bed. It has polished timber floors and an open fireplace with a dark marble-like timber mantelpiece. The north facing aspect of this room makes it a warm, bright one, with a view across the water towards American River and Kingscote. The baltic Australian colonial furniture in this room is very attractive. 

The colours of this room are cream and tan and a frieze border with golds, blues and pinks complimenting the pale blue linen and curtain fabrics. Heating and cooling is by reverse cycle air-conditioning with electric blankets on the bed. The ensuite bathroom is in a beautiful mixture of heritage green and cream.

About Seaview Lodge

Your host Barbara Ewens welcomes you to this ca.1860 homestead with its original character. The home was used as a sailor's Guest House for thirty years from 1890. Since then it has served as a private home, a farmhouse and a boarding house.

Today, this tranquil guesthouse is the result of a beautiful makeover in the 1990's and is renowned for its views, relaxed atmosphere and warm hospitality.

Offering views of the sea and surrounding farmland, this is the perfect place to spoil yourself for a night, a weekend, or a week. All your needs are catered for, including a cooked or continental breakfast in the morning, 4-wheel drive tours, hire cars and bus tours easily arranged by nearby tourist information office. 

Guest bedrooms have been kept to a maximum of five (Rose, Madeira, Jasmine, Tecoma and Honeysuckle) to ensure comfort and privacy. Each room offers delightful decor reminiscent of a gentler time. The deluxe rooms are particularly romantic with their fabulous four-poster beds and ensuite bathrooms making it a perfect hideaway. 

Three of the five bedrooms have fire places, original polished floors and all have ensuites. Heating and cooling is provided in all rooms. 

Located at Penneshaw, Seaview Lodge is ideally situated in it's closeness to the ferry terminal from the mainland. The small township of some 400 people nestled on a point overlooking the mainland has an abundance of wildlife, particularly at night. The fairy penguins and Tammar wallabies are seen in and around the town most evenings. 

The cottage-style gardens feature roses and older style cottage plants and Australian native shrubs which attract scores of Blue Wrens, Goldfinches, Honeyeaters and other native Australian birds. Simply sitting on the verandah, enjoying the views is a pleasant and relaxing experience. 

I live on the premises and do my best to ensure that my guests enjoy the comfort of an old-fashioned Bed & Breakfast. Staying at Seaview Lodge is a fine way to enjoy the charm of Kangaroo Island. Its heritage and location will surely make your holiday a memorable one.
