Please ensure that the house is left tidy and all dishes etc have been washed. 

What you need to bring 
All linen is provided, so all you’d need to bring would be beach towels, personal toiletries and perishable food stuff if you are not planning to use island produce. Most dry goods items are in the pantry cupboard; please replace anything that runs out during your stay.

- Perth ,


Fabulous stay. The home and its location is wonderful. View of the ocean and the large patio to sit and look out and have a drink after exploring the island is such a lovely way to end a day. Furnishings are beautiful, tasteful and comfortable. Loved that there was food left for us to feed the kangaroos and wallabies who came to visit in the late afternoon. The kitchen is well stocked and books and CD's plentiful and a TV with Netflix option. The Fat Beagle cafe 3 mins drive away had good food and coffee. I would definitely return to Thorn Park on the Island if i'm going to KI again and have recommended it to all my friends.
