“One of the best places in Australia”
Reviewed 29 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The place is absolutely stunning and we were sad to leave. The house is very neat, clean and cosy, and the surrounding is just picturesque. It is quite isolated which we loved but conveniently located with lots of wildlife around - just ideal. We loved every moment of our stay at A Dune Escape and we will be definitely back. Brian has been helpful since the beginning what made our stay even more memorable. It is one of the most beautiful accommodations we went to. Highly recommend!!!!

“Wonderful holiday with our little family!”
Reviewed 27 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We had a wonderful holiday and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at A Dune Escape!
Beautiful house surrounded by nature... The kids played happily (and safely) in the surrounding garden making the most of clambering up and down the sand dunes and looking out for wallaby's. Lovely deck area and BBQ for entertaining. The house itself is very well looked after, it is evident that Brian and Kris are meticulous with every detail. Quality linen used on all the beds, great kitchen set up with quality appliances/cookware, even offering us a baby bath for our little one and a free washing service should we have needed it!
We will be back again for sure!

Thank you so much - we really value your comments especially coming from your business of interior decor :)
We have just had a make-over of the garden so it looks great now with some Yukka palms etc. We are so glad you had a fun holiday with your children and we really look forward to your return

“Wish we were there longer...”
Reviewed 25 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We managed to get 2 nights stay at Dune escape, and it was the highlight of our stay on KI. We fell in love with the beach at Emu Bay- what a beautiful, secluded gem. And the house too! It is an immaculate property, and the dune lookout is the perfect place to enjoy a sunset cheese and wine (local of course!) Dune Escape is one of those holiday homes that make you wish you could just have a few more days...and then a few more days..!

“Very comfortable and private”
Reviewed 26 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

The Dune Escape is a wonderful place to stay. It has comfy beds with quality linen, a well-appointed kitchen, easy and relaxed indoor/outdoor living areas. Brian and Kris are very friendly, helpful but still respected our privacy.

Brian shared his freshly caught tuna fillets with us (delicious). It was very thoughtful and generous.

Communication about our specific bedding needs, detailed instructions to locate the house via email were excellent.

The only negatives were that for some reason we anticipated sea views from the house and there was no provision to do washing. Having said that, Brian did kindly offer to take laundry to do at their home. The offer was appreciated.

About the sea vista, we had to walk a few steps on top of the dune to see beautiful Emu Bay. We saw an echidna, many wallabies, dolphins while walking on the beach. Glorious.

The best thing about The Dune Escape is its close proximity to Kingscote. No real need to shop on the mainland as the supermarket was well stocked and not overly priced. (The coffee in town was good too.) Thanks Brian and Kris. We had a very pleasant stay.

Thank you for your kind words in reviewing your holiday at A Dune Escape :) It was a pleasure to have you and to facilitate your holiday so that you enjoyed it as much as possible. We are glad you saw so much nature as you accessed the dune system down to the beach - Nature meets the Sea! - even though we have no sea views from the house, as described on the website, it is only 30 metres to the top of the dune, with patio decking and deck chairs set up for magnificent private views over beautiful Emu Bay.
