A spacious and cozy 3-bedroom farmhouse nestled in the middle of a picturesque 40-acre vineyard in the heart of the world-renowned McLaren Vale wine region. Relax with a glass of wine under the pergola as you watch kangaroos hop through the vines at dusk. With views of grapevines from just about every room in the house, space for you to spread out, and inviting outdoor spaces for you to use close to the vines, you’ll feel relaxed and at home in no time at all!
Our farmhouse is located in the middle of a gorgeous piece of land our family has been growing grapes and olives on for more than 30 years. We love this rustic home dearly and look forward to sharing it with you. Settle in with a glass of our award-winning wine on the bench in our front yard overlooking the vines and the Willunga hills. We provide you with a complimentary bottle of our wine upon arrival — a small token of our appreciation for booking your stay in McLaren Vale with us.
We're just 5 kms from the main street of McLaren Vale where all the shops and restaurants are located, yet you'll feel a whole world away as you relax on our private and tranquil vineyard property. We're minutes away from most of the cellar doors in McLaren Vale making it an ideal base for your holiday in McLaren Vale and the greater Fleurieu Peninsula.
THE WINE FARMHOUSE — YOUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME
The entire 3 bedroom / 4 bed / 2 bathroom farmhouse is yours to use during your stay. It's the ideal layout for a family, a group of friends, cyclists, a couple, or a set of couples looking to experience McLaren Vale and unwind amongst the grapevines.
You'll have full access to a large outdoor patio that is located just off the fully-equipped kitchen. It comes complete with a barbeque grill and pizza oven. The patio is quite enchanting as it's under a pergola covered in vines and is surrounded by plants and flowers we've been tending to for years. It's the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine after a day of visiting cellar doors or sightseeing. You'll see rows of Tempranillo grapes growing from the back patio.
The house has aircon for cooling, a fireplace for heating, a washing machine, clothesline, a dishwasher, and iron that you're welcome to use.
We provide olive oil and fresh rosemary from our property, Australian milk, coffee, tea, sugar, assorted dried spices, and filtered water. For guests staying at least two nights, we try to provide a few little fresh local extras whenever possible.
CELLAR DOOR & WINERY
In addition to growing grapes, our family also produces small-batch, hand-crafted wine, and runs a boutique cellar door just down the road from the farmhouse. We've been a staple in the region for more than 30 years and would love to share our wine with you. We're known locally for our yummy platters (my wife, Wendy, whips them up herself most weekends) and we'd love to make you one if your stay takes place when our cellar door is open. As guests staying at our farmhouse, we invite you to stop by for a complimentary wine tasting and a discount on wine for purchase. Our cozy cellar door is located about 1 km down the road from the farmhouse.
If you happen to stay with us during the vintage season (late February through April) and you're interested in seeing parts of the winemaking process, please do let us know! All of our wine is made at our son's winery just two kilometers down the road. Our son is our Winemaker and he and our daughter-in-law make all of our wine together. They'd be happy to give you a "behind the scenes" look at the winemaking process if it's in season and they have some free time. They’ve been thinking about hosting an Airbnb experience together where you’d have an opportunity to participate in grape crushing, pressing, and other activities during the harvest. If you're interested in something like this, please let us know!
Our property is located on a beautiful and quiet tree-lined street in the world-famous McLaren Vale wine region. While our farmhouse is nestled amongst the vines, we're a short 5-minute drive to the Main Street of McLaren Vale where there are shops, restaurants, and grocery stores. We're a 15 minute drive from the beach (although you could bike there instead!) and about 40 minutes south of the Adelaide hills. Our farmhouse is located on the same street as several boutique wineries and a distillery and we're close to all the best that McLaren Vale has to offer.
