Dune House

Sleeps 6


Absolute Emu Bay beach front

Nestled on the crest of a protected sand dune in a natural bush setting, overlooking the length of pristine North facing Emu Bay, Dune House is as good as it gets on Kangaroo Island.

Architecturally designed, painstakingly detailed and impeccably furnished with high quality bespoke and imported items, a stay here offers you the opportunity of a lifetime.


Emu Bay’s finest

The circular design of Dune House provides light and views for every room. Anchored by the sunken leather lounge and fire place, the full beach view, and broad deck take centre stage.

Step directly onto the sand. Swim or walk along the 5km white beach, watching the dolphins as you go. Koalas, wallabies, penguins, an echidna or a goanna, are all likely to visit at leisure.

See Dune's floor plan.


Outdoor Living

After a day walking the incredible Emu Bay beach, boating, swimming with the dolphins, jagging squid off the jetty, paddle boarding or touring the island, wind down and relax on the leather sunken lounge, or doze by the fire.  

The compact contemporary kitchen is fitted out with top of the range appliances, hand made crockery and cutlery, cook books and napery. Alternatively BBQ and dine outdoors with a view from the iconic terrazzo table nestled amongst the trees.

“Our third visit to Dune House, we just love coming back. We watched thunderstorms, hail and rain for the first three days. This place is just as beautiful in wild weather as it is in the sunshine! Love the house.

“The attention to detail is incredible, but without feeling staged or try hard.The owners’ love for this house and location is evident in every art work, plate, rug, towel, chair we use. Dune House is not just a house. It’s a healing health retreat, healing the mind, body and soul. Thank you, thank you, thank you for refilling our cups.”

"The huge picture windows, the shape of rooms, the wonderful heat retaining floor, contributed to the peace and tranquility we experienced during our stay - and of course the view. What can one say about that view - totally majestic.  And to see the dolphins gliding by just topped it off. "
