1869 North Coast Road Smiths Bay

Welcome

Welcome to Molly’s Run, named after beloved Molly the dog. Your hosts, Paul and Charmaine, welcome you to our beautiful hidden gem at Smith Bay on the North Coast of Kangaroo Island.

Molly’s Run offers accommodation for those discerning clients looking for peace, tranquility and a little indulgence. Enjoy beautiful night skies, sunsets, dawns, and for bird lovers, we are surrounded by both a huge variety and number of birds. Go for a walk before breakfast and see our resident kangaroos before they dissappear into the bushes for the day. Often koalas are in our trees immediately surrounding the house and prove to be a wonderful photo opportunity.

We look forward to welcoming you with great local wines, and meals cooked using as much local produce as possible. For those guests who are self touring, we are more than happy to provide our local insight and knowledge to help plan the perfect visit. Please ask us to take you on a nocturnal tour after dinner to see our otherwise mostly hidden animals……..it will be a highlight of your stay with us.
