“a wonderful designed house”
Reviewed 15 December 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 17 November 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!

Thanks for your review, we are so glad you had a fabulous holiday at A Dune Escape. Due to our eco design we are unable to supply a second bathroom and washing machine, but we always offer a washing service at our own home - Cheers for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year.

“A Dune Escape - Totally Relaxing & Beautiful”
Reviewed 4 October 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.

“Elegant house, great beach and very nice owner”
Reviewed 29 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Dune Escape house is very well presented with very nice furniture, most comfy and warm beds ever and it is spotlessly clean, everything arranged nice and neatly. Brian and Kris welcomed us when we arrived, showed us around and also helped our son with his fishing hobby. Details such as tissue boxes, garbage bags (small size and big size), plenty of toilet papers, woods for fire places... made us feel really taken care of. The steps down to beach is a little bit tricky for our little kids (2 and 5 years old), but I myself did really enjoy it and also enjoyed the long beach walk where I encountered birds and collected sea shells for my girls. Thank you again Brian and Kris, would love to come back!!!

Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Thanks Brian
Leisl and I had such a great time in KI and your beautiful home was a pleasure to have been privileged to. Fireplace at nights added to the overll ambiance. The steps down to the beach was easy and we had it all to ourselves each time. Only downside was we should have stayed longer!
Cheers

“Total peace and tranquility”
Reviewed 6 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The ultra-modern residence was immaculately presented by the owners. The outside BBQ area was a sun- trap even in Winter. We especially loved the patio overlooking the vast beach and spent many happy relaxed hours there. In the evening the log fire was a welcome addition. We found Emu Bay a central holiday destination to explore the island, and have already recommended it to a number of our friends.

Thank you for your very positive review. Yes, there is always a little spot in the warmth even in winter and at night its very cosy with the log fire in the lounge room. The beach view from the patio is certainly stunning, we live down in the gully and just knew when we built the holiday beach house we had to have that view! We welcome your return and/or any of your friends to come and stay again - thank you once again for the very kind and appreciative words.

“Peaceful, luxurious, relaxing, sublime!!”
Reviewed 2 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We adored A Dune Escape! The property and location were spectacular. We loved the privacy and seclusion, spotting wildlife during dusk and dawn walks through the expansive private property, meandering along the beach collecting shells and breathing the fresh ocean air, and gazing into the captivating night skies. The friendly, obliging owners have thought of everything. The house itself is a dream - the cleanest holiday house we've ever seen, equipped with high quality fixtures, fittings and furnishings with the most comfortable bed and lounges and a beautiful wood stove.

Wow, what a great review, thank you so much. We are so glad you got to see and really feel the beautiful (almost private at times) beach - the spring flowers are all out over the property now but roaming around as you did is one of the simple pleasures - you don't need to go to the BIG tourist venues hey, the animals are on our property anyway - Thank you once again for a wonderful review :)
