Settlers Homestead is a dwelling in disguise. On the outside, the homestead is built from mammoth sandstone blocks, once used by the island’s original settlers. Fear not, however, you won’t be living like a settler. The homestead’s interiors are firmly rooted in the 21st century, offering guests three bedrooms, a bright lounge with combustion fireplace and a sprinkling of contemporary mod-cons.
Each bedroom comes with its own deck or courtyard area. Use yours as a private retreat when you need some alone time from your group, or make it a quiet space where you do nothing except lose yourself in the view. All bedrooms have ensuites with double showers and two vanities. For one of the mornings you’re here, set your alarm before dawn to catch a beautiful sunrise; watch from the homestead’s main deck or make the 150-metre walk to the beach for a front-row spot.
Return to the homestead to pull together breakfast. Not in the mood to scramble eggs or fry up bacon? Dining packages are available, and one option includes a chef-prepared breakfast. If you’re happy to DIY the most important meal of the day, a self-help spread of provisions can be arranged too.
To fill the rest of your day, explore Flinders Chase National Park or Seal Bay Conservation Park, head back to the beach or set up a board game tournament with your group.
