Escape to a secluded island holiday destination on a 15-hectare private coastal property. Hear the sounds of the ocean and walk just 20 metres to stunning views of the crystal aqua waters and pure white sands of the 4.5km Emu Bay beach. Nestled high into the top of the dunes, enjoy the peace and beauty that surrounds this coastal retreat, perfect in all seasons.

A Dune Escape features quality furnishings, Australian oak floors and a strong connection to nature with stand alone solar power, all rainwater, an open log fire, open plan living and outside Kapur deck areas to enjoy the fabulous natural landscape and sweeping hinterland.

A Dune Escape is a 2-bedroom house, accommodating up to 6 people in 2 Queen-size beds and a double bunk bed. All bed linen, featuring pure crisp cotton, and bath towels are included in the tariff.

Your hosts, Brian and Kris, live nearby and are willing to meet you upon arrival.

Brian, has worked on the island for 17 years as a personalised tour guide offering unique individual experiences. He is a wealth of local knowledge to assist you with your holiday itinerary.

Breakfast, Kangaroo Island style, for your first morning is available upon request.

Discover Emu Bay and the surrounding unique Kangaroo Island wilderness

Emu Bay is a quiet coastal hamlet located on the northern side of KI with safe swimming, a fishing jetty and a boat ramp. The Sealink ferry arrives from Cape Jervis on the mainland to Penneshaw. From Penneshaw to Emu Bay is approximately 75km, all on bitumen, sealed roads.

Emu Bay is 15 mins from the airport.

Kangaroo Island is one of Australia’s greatest iconic treasures and a must for anyone interested in travel to unique wilderness destinations.

Take pleasure in the wildlife to be found, including kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas and the sounds of abundant birdlife whilst roaming through natural garden like native bush land over the private property. Walk to the beach over the dunes to swim and relax. Enjoy sunrise or sunset and you will often see dolphins along the shoreline.

Fishing Charters can be arranged. Visit the local Emu Bay Lavendar farm next door for lunch or a morning coffee.

A Dune Escape serves as an ideal base for touring this pristine environmental island, due to its central location and its proximity to the main town, Kingscote where you will find most services.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent property We had a lovely 2 night stay at dune escape. The house was modem and clean and had everything we needed. We loved the view from the house and from the top of the dunes and emu bay is a beautiful secluded beach. We really felt like we had the holiday we deserved. Thank you Brian and Kris

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A private little slice of heaven on KI We were fortunate to stay at the Dune Escape for 2 nights. The location is absolutely stunning. We were aware the the property was near the beach but did not expect the incredible ocean views of a secluded Emu bay just steps from the house. The beach is perfect to walk along, and calm and warm for swimming. The track down from the dune might be too steep for young kids or those with mobility issues, but it was perfect for us! The home was spotless and well equipped. Make sure to do your food shopping on mainland and bring supplies with you (including all toiletries and beach towels - which we forgot!) as the location is a bit remote and things are expensive on the island. We saw tons of kangaroos and enjoyed the stunning sunsets. Brian was super responsive and great to communicate with. He kindly arranged a private surf lesson for us with some of his friends. We had a blast. Thanks so much Brian!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best holiday rental ever Brian & Kris were fabulous to deal with and answered all emails promptly. A Dune Escape did not disappoint - it was the best holiday rental we have ever stayed in. It was clean and well appointed with everything we needed. All of the furniture and accessories were of excellent quality and well kept. The property is stunning with amazing views from every window. A short path leads to a magical view of Emu Bay beach and there's steps down the dune to access the beach. We had regular visits from resident wallabies, Blue Fairy Wrens and Flame Robins. It's a nature lovers delight and we will certainly be coming back!
