Owners & Hosts



Sea Dragon Lodge & Villas is a boutique, luxury retreat created by Steve & Gail Lane in 2007.

Steve & Gail have aimed to build a premium, experiential travel experience with unique Australian style. They strive to ensure that every guest has a wonderful relaxing stay, and enjoy sharing their knowledge of the island to further enhance the experience. Steve spent 40 years in corporate life as an entrepreneur in the Telecommunications and IT field, and Sea Dragon Lodge is now providing an enjoyable change of pace. He is responsible for the overall management and operation of the business and enjoys meeting guests from all walks of life. Gail is the driving force behind our quality control and ensuring everything is presented in an immaculate condition. She has designed the decor in each of our accommodations to provide that “home away from home” feel.

The Team

If Steve & Gail aren’t present, you will be greeted by the apple not far from the tree; Kate Lane (daughter) and her partner Emma. As well we being the on-site Managers, they also assist with the housekeeping and the general operation of the business.

Behind the scenes, at some point you will be in touch with Kelly, who is our Administration & Marketing Manager. Kelly has a wealth of island knowledge gained from over 10 years in the tourism industry. She will be the one to organise your stay and will gladly assist with planning your Kangaroo Island itinerary.

Your delicious meals will be prepared by local chef, Bridgette. Having her own permaculture farm gate, ‘Flavours of Petite Provence’, Bridgette has a passion for local produce and delivers this through our seasonal menus.

If you plan to tour with us, you will get to travel with one of our highly experienced local tour guides; Quentin, Dale or Luke. Their passion for and great knowledge of Kangaroo Island, will ensure whatever tour you choose will be both informative, enjoyable, and an experience you will remember for a long time.
