I am a teacher, married to Peter and we have two boys. Kangaroo Island is our piece of paradise, our holiday haven for forty years and we are so happy to share it with you. Penneshaw is a picturesque village with a pristine safe swimming beach, a selection of fabulous eateries and wineries nearby and it's a perfect place for walking, fishing, swimming, and relaxing. There is a golf course in the town too. We love the wildlife and spectacular, pristine environment of KI; an amazing place to unwind.
