hamilton house

hamilton house is available for a maximum of 6 guests. larger groups may book in conjunction with dune house nearby.

indulge in the best quality, style and comfort that emu bay – and in fact, kangaroo island – has to offer. despite looking like the 1960s beach house it once was, hamilton house was completely renovated in 2018. while still retaining the family history, period details and memories enjoyed in this special multi-generational home, it has now been designed for today’s relaxed beach holiday living.  
set back on a 4,000 sqm block, located right on the prime emu bay foreshore, hamilton house is just 100m from the jetty and boat ramp, playground and cricket pitch. most importantly, however, it is only 100m from the 5km expanse of emu bay’s pristine white sandy beach.

relax and unwind, surrounded by collectible european and australian furniture, vintage carpets found in shanghai, and heritage family pieces. the international and local art, various shell collections, french fireplace and bespoke fittings all combine to create a character and charm unique to hamilton house and are worth a stay in itself.  

entertaining is what hamilton does best. the contemporary kitchen is fitted out with top of the range appliances, and every cooking utensil and serving platter you can imagine is provided, not to mention vintage and hand made crockery and cutlery, cook books and napery. a barbeque is also available for use on the outdoor sundeck.

after a day of walking on one of the world’s best beaches, boating, swimming with dolphins, jagging squid off the jetty, paddle boarding or touring the island, sink into the stylish sun lounges and listen to the birds. wander through the large garden and look for penguins, koalas and goannas. kick a footy on the expanse of seafront lawn. help yourself to books and games, turn on the tv, hook up to the wi-fi, tune into the sonos, or simply sleep soundly to lapping waves.
