Overview

About the property

This is House on the Hill.

Perched on the side of a hill this contemporary beach house overlooks the trees and ocean of Emu Bay.

The house is designed as a coastal retreat for its owners and has an intimate connection to its bush surroundings and nearby sea.

Here one can experience the comforts of a simple modern beach house in a 5acre setting.

The location, the incredible views and the house provide for a perfect retreat, a holiday and a place for relaxation in all seasons.

House on the hill is a house with a strong inside-outside connection. The living and outside areas are north facing with sweeping sea views. One can experience the unique location from all rooms at any time of the day and throughout the seasons.

Bedroom: There is a Queen-size bed with views over the trees to the ocean.

Bathroom: White tiles, a jarrah vanity top and a large window facing the sea.

Kitchen and living: A large open space with an adjoining deck. The stainless steel kitchen with gas stove and electric oven, has all necessary utensils and cooking requirements.

3m high sliding doors open onto the main deck and below there is a BBQ deck.

For cooler days there is an open fire for heating the living areas.

A 4m long day bed at the end of the room looks out over the landscape to the water.

An outside shower sits under the trees for an after beach wash.

The house is private on its 5acres but only 700m from the 4.5km beach of Emu Bay.

Emu Bay is a quiet costal hamlet located on the northern side of KI. Its 4.5km long white sandy beach is accessible to vehicles and provides safe swimming. There is also a jetty and a boat ramp.

The Sealink ferry arrives from Cape Jervis at Penneshaw. The distance from Penneshaw to Emu Bay is approximately 75km, all on bitumen.

Emu Bay to Kingscote is 18km along a bitumen road and from Emu Bay to the airport takes 15 minutes.

House on the hill serves as an ideal base for touring the Island due to its central location and its proximity to Kingscote.

In Kingscote you will find most services including supermarket, petrol station, post office, bank, tourist information etc.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

The property has a lovely relaxed home feel about it. At night we had a lovely fire and during the day the deck with lovely views is the place to be.the property is large and very quiet with kangaroos and bird life ,close to the beach and easy driving to all kangaroo island has to offer. A joy to stay there.

Lovely hidden treasure

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our getaway at House On The Hill. So relaxing comfortable & well equipped. The private bush land, the fireplace, daybeds to read or soak in the stunning views were lovely & even some wildlife to watch on the front lawn. Such a tranquil place that draws you in more the longer you are there. Recommend it & love to revisit. The call from Colin to make sure all was good was lovely as well.

Cosy and comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

The property itself was fantastic, it was clean and cosy. We will definitely miss that view every morning.

Unfortunately we went at the wrong time of year & drove to many tourist attractions that were closed for the winter so spent most of our holiday driving around but still tried to appreciate our time away from the city.

Very relaxing contemporary beach house

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful house with great views of the bay. Love the day bed to watch the world go by! There are no shops/restaurants close by, so you can pick up your shopping in Kingscote and the house has a well equipped full kitchen with some pantry items to use. Open fire is fabulous and there is also reverse cycle air conditioning in the main bedroom. Very comfortable and very warm. We had a few visits from some kangaroos which was lovely. Very relaxing stay - would definitely recommend. Thanks Colin & Cecilia.
