Nestled in the clifftops, overlooking the coast of Kangaroo Island, lies CABNs latest luxury retreat. Redefining off-grid accommodation, immerse yourself in total seclusion as you trek down to your own private beach, and take a dip in the unspoilt, crystal-clear turquoise waters, or watch the storms roll in from your oceanfront private sauna. CABN Cape St Albans features nine architecturally designed, custom CABNs with private observation decks and outdoor baths overlooking the sea.

Located just a 30-minute drive from Penneshaw, tuck yourself away in pure, unscathed land and allow yourself to unwind, disconnect, and recharge. Take a breath of fresh air whilst you lay your eyes on unmatched, panoramic views of the Backstairs Passage, named by Matthew Flinders in 1802, that lies between the Cape and the Fleurieu Peninsula. Each CABN offers a king-sized bed, fireplace, indoor & outdoor kitchen, modern bathroom with a spacious bath, floor-to-ceiling windows, and private sauna, complemented with handpicked selections & furnishings combining an element of luxury with the purity of being totally off-grid.

Welcome to CABN Cape St Albans, a surreal accommodation experience allowing you to connect with the ones you love amongst raw, pure nature in guilt-free, sustainable luxury.

Coming May 2023


Cape St Albans is a location like no other on Kangaroo Island, previously family owned, and never offered to the public until now. Explore untouched nature and the unique history of the property.

Situated on the property is the St Albans lighthouse which has remained operational since 1908, guiding thousands of ships safely through the cape, now committed to guarding our CABNs and our guests.

Prior to the establishment of the famous lighthouse, the cape was known for its shipwrecks. This includes the Kona in 1901 which travelled from California to Pt Adelaide, striking a reef and sinking in front of the property. All onboard survived and were rescued from the shore of the private beach, with the shipwreck still remaining on the beach to explore today.

Arriving at CABN Cape St Albans

The journey to Kangaroo Island is part of the experience, with multiple modes of transport from the sea to the sky.

Sealink Ferry

Departing from Cape Jervis daily, Sealink offers a 45-minute ferry from the mainland to Penneshaw beach. The drive to Cape Jervis will take you through the iconic Fleurieu peninsula, passing some of South Australia’s best beaches such as Rapid Bay and Second Valley. All are less than 3 hours from Adelaide. It is less than a 30-minute drive by car from the ferry terminal to Cape St Albans.


If you’re looking to fly, Qantas offers multiple short, 35-minute flights every week from Adelaide Airport. Cape St Albans is a 55-minute drive from Kingscote Airport

Transport on the Island

The best way to travel throughout the island is via car. You can bring your own vehicle on the ferry, or hire a car on the island. We’d suggest booking hire cars in advance as inventory can be limited.
