Philip was a great host. The apartment was very clean, the facilities very good. Continental breakfast very nice. Highly recommend this cottage as it is very close to all the wineries.

Christine G - 30th January 2021

Have to say what a delight to stay at this little Gem.. Had a gig in Mclaren Vale a couple of weeks back and found this.. Lovely room which was more than well equipped and the service from Phil and Robyn was wonderful.. Can't wait to visit again ... See you soon

Dave C - 16th January 2021

My husband and I decided to take a weekend break to kick off the new year. We stumbled across this gem of a place literally minutes walk from Oxenberry and Serafino's. The pictures don't do it justice, the high quality of the apartment, bedding, appliances etc. are equal to that of a 5* hotel. Attention to detail is phenomenal even supplying a Nespresso coffee machine which is an extremely nice touch. After a long day of wine tasting and walking it was nice to chill (with a bottle of wine) in the cottage and was even able to catch a film as Netflix and wifi included which was really cool. The owners (Phil and Robyne) couldn't have been more helpful, giving us some top tips of wineries to visit. I can't recommend this amazing cottage more highly, we will certainly be returning very soon.

Julie D - 19th December 2020

Wow gorgeous cottage with excellent facilities, great attention to detail, our hosts Phil & Robyne could not be more helpful. Great location. We will be back.
