We stayed in Shalom for a week and it was great, it really felt 5 star.

If you are looking for accommodation that feels like home with the extra touch, then this is the one. The hosts have taken care of all the small things often overlooked in self catering accommodation right down to spices, cleaning materials and all the little things.

Accommodation was equipped with comfortable beds with ironed pillow cases and quality fixtures and fittings. The BBQ outside was high end and got a real workout over the week.

The beach is nearby and only a short walk to what I would rate as the best bay on the island, with a fishing jetty and what appears to be a very new and well constructed boat launch. As a handy tip there is fishing charters and dolphin trips that leave from the bay and Kingscote is only a 15 minute drive to shops and restaurants. All attractions were within 45 minutes of the house and it provided the perfect location. We were so glad we chose Emu Bay, it is absolutely stunning.

You will find koalas in the trees, kangaroos and even a echidnae around Shalom! You really find yourself immersed in nature.

I cannot recommend Emu Bay Holiday Homes enough.

Room tip: Houses are great - highly recommended

We had an amazing view of the bay, the accommodation was clean, spacious and bright. We loved the welcome pack left for us on arrival, such a nice gesture of some delicious local produce. Great spot to enjoy the views and also wild life! we managed to see a few koalas, kangaroos, echidna and some beautiful little birds on the grounds which was perfect! If you are after a peaceful spot, this is certainly the one to go for.

Room tip: The whole complex was quiet, Amani accommodation had great views

Emu Bay Holiday Homes was the perfect stay on the Northern side of Kangaroo Island. It has the best view of Emu Bay, the beach with the whitest sand and clearest water. Only 15 minutes to Kingscote and all the attractions nearby. Kangaroo Island Spirits was our fave. The Bayview apartment was perfect for a couple: comfortable living room and bedroom, well equipped kitchen facilities and a very clean and tidy bathroom. All we needed was our food and drink supplies and the rest was taken care of! Booking and organisation was super easy and René was so welcoming, accomodating and informative on the areas best attractions, restaurants and things to do! We highly recommend staying at Emu Bay Holiday Homes for couples or families for the best experience on the island.

We hastily organised a six-night stay at Emu Bay Holiday Homes, sight unseen, after the SA lockdown was announced. We sure picked the right spot! A spick and span bungalow with plenty of room to cook and hang out, surrounded by gorgeous gardens - bliss!

The grounds of the property are absolutely spectacular and must be the product of many years of hard work. There's a lovely view of the sea, and koalas in the trees at night. We were very well looked after by Renee and her team, even considering the difficult circumstances. Would not hesitate to recommend it!

Room tip: The cabins have cute daybeds on the front porch.

Thank your for your great recommendation. Glad we could help you out during the lockdown. Shalom House is certainly the perfect spot to sit that out! Thanks for your recommendation!

We were accommodated in Amani and Bayview - perfect for our family of 5 adults and 3 children. the location was perfect - a stroll to the beach, easy drive to Kingscote and accessible to other tourist attractions.
The houses were well stocked, very clean, quality fixtures and bedding.
The wildlife around was a great activity each day! Echidnas, goannas, birdlife, koalas!
a wonderful memory making time for our family! thank you Rene!
The yummy catering from Lucy was a real bonus!
