COVID-19 Management

COVID-19 Management at Emu Bay Holiday Homes

We hope you and your families are staying safe in these unprecedented times the world is experiencing. Continued vigilance and adherence to guidelines for COVID safety is so important.

Kangaroo Island is fortunate that we are isolated from the mainland, but it also brings fearful anticipation of how we would cope with our lack of medical facilities if we had an outbreak on the island. In April  2020 Kangaroo Island businesses went into lock down discouraging visitation. This was very hard for businesses as welcoming tourists is part of our DNA and Australians have responded so well to support Kangaroo Island after the devastating bush fires early in 2020.

Travel has now resumed to most places around Australia, interspersed by intermittent lock downs are required. We are looking forward to welcoming guests back.

For guests whose travel becomes affected by Covid, we are happy to refund you or transfer deposits to future dates. We are all in this together, and that’s the only way we can beat it.

We trust that our guests will do the right thing by adhering to the general rules to stop the spread:

Please DO NOT COME TO THE ISLAND IF UNWELL  or you have been in contact with anybody from COVID HOTSPOTS. Attend your OWN medical services.  Kangaroo Island is not the place to come and self isolate as a very vulnerable community will be placed at risk.

Remember to:

Wash hands regularly with warm water and soap
Cover any coughing or sneezing with a tissue discarded appropriately or your elbow
Avoid handshakes and sharing personal objects
Thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting shared surfaces often
Practice physical distancing and wear masks as required

We have spent the time productively attending to painting and maintenance to improve your future experience at Emu Bay Holiday Homes.

The cleanliness of Emu Bay Holiday Homes has always been our pride.  Additional attention with appropriate disinfection is given to commonly touched areas. All quilt covers, cushion covers are changed every time.    Self-check-in allows for low touch tourism but we are always there should you need assistance and will say hi from a safe distance. Hand sanitiser and disinfectant is provided in each unit.

Remember, BOOKING DIRECTLY with an accommodation provider is best for them and we look forward to welcoming you back to come and enjoy the space, peace, and tranquility Emu Bay Holiday Homes offers. If COVID affects your travel we are happy to refund you are transfer your booking to different dates. Managing this with DIRECT bookings is far easier than third party bookings.

Ideal location, great stay

Two friends and I spend 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 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.
