The Dune Escape is an extra special home in a spectacular & private location overlooking Emu Bay. The hosts are welcoming & ready to make your stay extra special. The gourmet breakfast hamper was outstanding with the Kangaroo Island treats. Directions to the home were useful & meeting the hosts was an extra bonus! Great Australiana hospitality at its best!

What a beautiful place and wonderful hosts! We had a lovely two night stay on kangaroo island in this gorgeous house. Wish we could have stayed much longer. Everything is immaculate and the location is unbelievable ! Highly recommend the local breakfast hamper, scrumptious!

If you're looking for privacy and a truly magical location you can't go past the Dune Escape. Tucked at the top of ocean sand dunes, with stunning countryside views to the South, this is a very special location for those looking to get away from it all. You'd never know this is an eco-home, there's fantastic amenities - and who doesn't love an outside shower-off with a countryside view after an ocean swim. As a family of five, (two adults and three kids), the location had something for everyone; from playful adventures on the beach to relaxing with a book on the large outside deck. We tried the Kangaroo Island breakfast (local produce and fare) which was personally delivered by Kris and Brian - The food was fantastic! The town of Kingscote is only 15 minutes drive away to grab a great meal or groceries. Our only regret is we didn't stay longer! Kris and Brian are wonderfully welcoming hosts.

The space was beautiful and location fantastic! There was lovely bread with eggs, butter and milk provided and a very well equipped kitchen. The seats at the top of the dunes and the beach walk were amazing!

Adventurous, fun loving forever young!
Into yoga, beaches, surf, walking, cooking gourmet dinners, good times and good friends. My husband and I have four beautiful children between us. They are all grown up now and all successfully living in beautiful places all around Australia.
We love travel, going to Indonesia often for my work and for the surfing, apart from that have travelled extensively through Europe ,America and Asia in particular. We live in an amazing environmentally beautiful Island of Australia on 15-hectares of natural bushland on the idyllic Emu Bay coastline. We have used Airbnb in California and Japan. We loved our experiences and now want to share our new holiday house with you.
