Location

Emu Bay, South Australia, Australia

One of only a few absolute beachfront properties at Emu Bay "Rumah Pantai" ( Beach House in Indonesian ) is the last standing example of the original Beach Shacks built by the Farmers on Kangaroo Island over 50 years ago. Fully renovated it has been designed to encompass it's natural surroundings and create tranquility much as is found in Bali.
Nestled in the trees the house is protected from wind most times and the views are of sea, beach and bush.
Penguins nest under the front deck, birds are attracted by the bird bath and surrounding vegetation and a Goanna lives close by and visits ( They are not timid but will not attack you! ) The occasional Koala will camp out for a night in either the back or front trees. Echidnas dig around, especially in Autumn and Winter, in the surrounding bushland.
The private rock path through the trees allows direct access to the 5 km long beach which is ideal for long walks. People also drive their cars up the beach to find their own private area for swimming or picnics.
The jetty and boat ramp has its group of resident Pelicans. Fishing off the jetty or beach are popular activities. There is a children's playground close.

Only 15 minutes to the main Town Kingscote Emu Bay is an ideal base.

Winter and Autumn are beautiful times when the beach changes, shore birds are more abundant and the proximity to the sea makes temperatures mild.

A special place which I am sure you will enjoy.
