Emu Labyrinth

Welcome to Emu Labyrinth at Emu Bay Holiday Homes

Emu Labyrinth at Emu Bay Holiday Homes was inspired after meeting Terry de Vries from South Africa on Lesvos in Greece in 2018 and helping her to build a labyrinth near the castle in Molyvos.

The flat area just above Jireh House with the beautiful sea views jumped out as the ideal place to build our labyrinth for guests of Emu Bay Holiday Homes to enjoy.

Creating the labyrinth started with transplanting some plants and then getting a bobcat in to level the surface and bring in some loads of crusher dust to have good footing underneath. Johannes started collecting trailer loads of rocks in the surrounding paddocks. Luckily there was no shortage there!

I researched some labyrinth patterns and decided on a Classical 5 Circuit Labyrinth. After watching some ‘how to’ YouTube videos, I helped Johannes draw it out and collect more rocks before we packed it together.

Our labyrinth is only open to our guests and we do hope you love the experience!

The significance of walking a labyrinth

Walking a labyrinth is an ancient practice that helps to reduce stress, quiets the mind and opens the heart.

A labyrinth is not a maze. It has only one path that serpentines towards the centre with twists and turns, just like life, and follows the same path back out. It is seen as a mini pilgrimage, a tool for meditation or a walking prayer. A walk with your soul to transform and heal.

How do you use a labyrinth? 

Think about the questions in your mind. Find a focus to hold onto for your walk.

Walk quietly, slowly, with an open heart and mind. Contemplate a situation, question or feeling. Ask your spirit mentor to walk with you.

In the center, pause and rest, reflect on your journey and seek insights into your living. Returning with contemplation is an important part of the journey.

Be grateful and give thanks before leaving the labyrinth.

Ideal location, great stay

Two friends and I spent 3 lovely nights in a cabin at Emu Bay Holiday Homes over the final weekend of October. The cabin was very clean and well maintained. Rene warmly welcomed us on arrival and provided us with some great local tips. The cabin was well equipped and had everything we needed for a home away from home experience. Spectacular views of Emu Bay and convenient location. We return home to Adelaide refreshed and with many lovely memories. A big thank you to Rene and Johannes. We now keenly await our next memorable KI experience.

What a gem

We had a fantastic five night stay with four other friends in Jireh House. Spotlessly clean and well appointed it was a great location to enjoy the views set among beautiful gardens with numerous colourful flowering plants. Mornings and evenings on the front verandah were memorable in the tranquil setting with numerous birds using the bird bath or feeding on the flowers. Easy access to Island attractions. Great assistance and communication with all our arrangements from Christine and Rene. We’ll definitely recommend it to friends and return some time.

Family friendly home

A house with stunning views. Home away from home comfort. Great facilities provided. A fantastic location . House situated amongst beautiful gardens so tranquil and peaceful.
Beautiful grounds for taking a walk and enjoying the Australian flora and fauna. Spotting koalas in the trees near the house was a highlight.
