Hamilton and Dune offer two private villas on beautiful Emu Bay - a 5 kilometre white sandy beach which provides one of the best for swimming and walking. Whilst these two beachfront villas can be hired simply as holiday homes, either individually or together to cater for a larger group, typically our guests prefer a full-service option which is fully-catered. 

We recommend a minimum stay of three days and three nights, with two full days of touring and a day at leisure in the middle to enjoy the location and perhaps include an ocean rafting trip with an open ocean swim with wild dolphins. Dune House caters for up to 5 guests and nearby Hamilton House up to 6 guests. Catering can be provided at three levels: provisions hamper; ready-to-eat for self-serve; or completely hosted. Please note that given this is a remote location, full disclosure of dietary needs and preferences are required well in advance.

Experiences offered by Exceptional Kangaroo Island for Hamilton & Dune guests can be shared or private. Shared options are the wildlife, landscape, food and wine experiences on our four full-day small group tours: Island Life; Flinders Chase Focus; East End Explorer; and Fine Flavours. Upgrade these to private or select a thematic itinerary such as: Fished, Farmed and Fermented; Young Families; Active Explorers; Conservation Connection; Luxe Couples; Photo Safari; Wild About Birds; and Art Immersion. If none of these suit, we will tailor-make an experience which suits your interests.


Dune House sits on a dune ridge overlooking the ocean. It is a contemporary luxury beach house designed by celebrated South Australian architect, Max Pritchard. The open plan living area and circular design gives an expansive feel despite a modest footprint. Extensive use of glass takes every opportunity to showcase views framed by surrounding bush.


Hamilton House has been a family holiday home for many years. A sensitive recent upgrade has resulted in a contemporary luxury 3 bed/3 bath home without disturbing the relaxed retro feel. Located only a few hundred metres from Dune House allows both homes to accommodate a larger group. Like Dune House it has Sonos sound and Wifi.
