“A perfect house in an idyllic setting”
Reviewed January 13, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Brian and Kris are open and warm, and provide excellent advice about what to do on the island. The house is tasteful, yet functional and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The beach just below the house was almost deserted while we were there (in peak season), and we were fortunate enough to have roos hooping around the garden almost every day. The island is beautiful with plenty of activities for all ages.

Having stayed there, I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

“Beautiful beach house with amazing views from the dune of Emu Bay and surrounds”
Reviewed December 28, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We all loved our stay in this clean beach house. The highlights were the comfortable, well equipped eco-house, proximity to the beach and the peace and quiet. Visits from the native wildlife - wallabys, roos, goannas and a variety of birds were a bonus. Brian and Kris were very welcoming and efficient - thanks for a memorable stay!

“100% to recommend”
Reviewed December 26, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We have been on KI with our small Family (3 People) and it was great. Our daughter (almost 2 years) loved it as we have done. It is every penny worth and we would definitely recommend the house to everyone.

“a wonderful designed house”
Reviewed December 15, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We expected one room and got a complete house, which is wonderful furnished and designed with a direct (but steep) access to the beach.
The next restaurant ist 15 km away and you have to bring all your foodstuffs with you. Buy it on the mainland. The island is quite expensive

“Beautiful and secluded accomodation, in Emu Bay.”
Reviewed November 16, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Staying at A Dune Escape was very enjoyable for our family and visiting in-laws. The accommodation was VERY clean and tidy, lovely furnishings, and had a well equipped kitchen. The beds are also extremely comfortable with very nice linens.
This property in Emu Bay is beautiful and secluded with just a few short steps to the most AMAZING panoramic ocean view. We also loved the adventurous walk down the bluff to the water and white sand beach, as well as the wildlife at the back porch! I would have given this 5 stars if it had a second bathroom and a washing machine, otherwise - perfect!

“A Dune Escape - Totally Relaxing & Beautiful”
Reviewed October 3, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We spent two nights at A Dune Escape on Kangaroo Island. It was a lovely, welcoming, home and we were very comfortable there. The house is extremely well equipped (the best equipped kitchen in any holiday rental we have every stayed in), extremely clean, quiet and warm. The location is amazing - loads of birds and animals in the grounds and an amazing beach over the dune at the back. Would highly recommend it as a base for exploring Kangaroo Island - we wish we had allowed more time there.
