  • Sunset At Emu Bay
    Hi Amanda, I hope you are well. I just wanted to thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful property at Emu Bay. The location was second to none and the beach was just divine. The house was wonderfully equipped, very comfortable and just perfect for our family of five. We all loved the feeling of being surrounded by wildlife. We even enjoyed the penguins antics through the night. 😃 It has been hard to come back to reality that’s for sure.
  • Kangaroo Island Penguins
    Hi there! We absolutely loved our stay (especially the penguins!) I actually enjoyed hearing them all night and their curiosity to us through the window! We were also very lucky enough to have seen whales, goannas and echidna's too! We will definitely be back, hopefully for some warmer weather!!
  • Hi Manda, Sadly we have returned to the real World! Thank you so much for allowing us to hire Passing Winds for the last week. We have had a fantastic time with our family who all loved your house. Just perfect in every way. Extremely comfortable and convenient. Despite the impact of the fires we still got out and about and did lots of stuff. Still so many attractions. George’s Lights and Little Sahara and Raptor Domain were hits with the youngsters as was swimming at Emu Bay. Many thanks again.
  • Passing Winds is in an idyllic in its position at Emu Bay. Nestled in the sand dunes with direct beach access. The beach is just gorgeous. We spent a lot of time kicking the football and running the 4.5 km stretch. The screening plants out the front gave us privacy while still allowing good views of the water. As a family of 4 with two teenage daughters, the house was very spacious and could have easily accommodate another family. After roughing it in the island prior, we were grateful to arrive at the house and have hot showers. The amenities are spot on and the kitchen had everything we needed. We saw penguins at night as they were all around the beach and dunes. They are cheeky things. A coffee in the morning from the Lavender Farm is a must! We will be back.
  • Great house for us! 6 adults & 5 children. Love the back deck with beach access, safe beautiful beach, loads of wildlife. I highly recommend this place and we will definitely stay again!
