Yakkalla was built in 2006 by the Haines family. Kevin & Helens’ son personally designed the cottage for his parents and the family all helped build the modern cottage. Kevin came up with the idea that a little cottage on his farm would capture the magnificent surroundings and Yakkalla was born. The cottage is filled with art work by Flinders Islands local artists who bring the stunning landscape into the spacious, peaceful cottage. Helen keeps a bookshelf full of fantastic novels for the reading buff. Yakkalla is suitable for people on a romantic holiday or just want to get away from it all and enjoy a peaceful, relaxing week or weekend.
