What a beautiful morning view of Emu Bay, from the lovely 3 bedroom accommodation in Jireh House. The owners are just lovely, the place is neat, clean and well set out. Plenty of parking, peaceful, close to the top end to go visit Kingscote and other areas. Then use this as a base to take off and explore the rest... More

Stayed in a cabin, one of the best fitted cabins I've been in. Was a standard 1 double bed and bunks. Unusual for this style is the bed sections are separated by curtains that I've not seen in a cabin of this size, and one set was missing. Owners are friendly and helpful. Views are fantastic! Worth the money.

Simple yet clean and cosy accommodation. A place for the small kids to keep preoccupied for an ample time. Customer service the way we wanted it. Convenient location especially for self-driving tourists, a worthy retreat and jump-off point to and from the island's key tourist spots. Million dollar views without the big tag price.

Is a great house to accomodate families or a group of friends. Got an upgrade from the lovely host. Clean kitchen and bathroom. Provide electric blanket which is good for winter night. Unfortunately no heater or electric blanket in 2nd or 3rd bedroom.

Breathtaking views, clean, comfy with everything in it (budget) cabin - linen and towels provided. Verandah with outdoor setting and futon a plus, ate all our meals there. Lovely surrounding gardens with kangaroos, koalas and plenty of bird life. Short drive to great beach with firm white sand you can drive on to. Would definately recommend as the price was... More

What a find, with great views overlooking tranquil Emu Bay and very friendly, hospitable hosts. We stayed in Cottage 3 with uninterrupted views of the stunning bay. It’s only a short walk down the hill to the beach and the pier. Whilst the decor in the cottage is slightly dated, this certainly did not detract from our stay, the cottage... More

A fantastic location with beautiful views and a 500m walk to the beach. We stayed in cabin 1 (budget) which is open-plan with double bed, 2 sets of bunks, kitchen area and a separate toilet/shower. The decor is quite dated but the cabin is very clean, spacious and well equipped. There is a large veranda overlooking the sea with comfy... More

We couldn't have chosen a better place in Kangaroo Island. The houses are located on a slope overlooking Emu Bay, which gave us stunning views of the blue tranquil waters of the Bay. The surrounding lush gardens were a delight too, though perhaps there could have been more animals around. Watching sunrise over the wide horizon was amazing. I would... More
