My son was married in Willunga in May and I decided to spend four nights at Evelyn Homestead during that time. From the moment I stepped through the front door I felt myself taken back in time to a more simplistic time where any troubles and stress can fade away. The cottage is well appointed with a comfortable and cosy... More

Our first visit to the McLaren Vale region was made more enjoyable by our stay in this beautiful old house "Evelyn". From the open fire at night to the pantry supplies for breakfast, everything was perfect. Spa bath, comfortable beds, & unique decor. We will be back.

Evenlyn cottage was very nice, clean & comfortable. All the supplies including bathroom amenities, kitchen supplies, and breakfast were very well prepared. The park is just across the street. We found very nice weekend market just in walking distance. Falie was very helpful providing all the information we need before and during our trip. I would recommend this place to... More

My wife and I celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary at Evelyn Cottage this weekend. From the moment that we met our warm, lovely, host (Falie), we suspected that this was going to be a weekend that we would remember. Now that we're at home we know that we weren't mistaken. Falie's graciousness is reflected in the fine, thoughtful appointments that... More

This cottage has an old worldly feeling to it and made a great backdrop for our bridal photos. So spacious and a very calming cottage to stay in. We booked for 3 nights and was a lovely place for...

Well-designed spa with room for two adults to stretch out side by side, comfy bed, and quiet location. Didn't get a chance to use the fireplace but the reverse-cycle heater was more than enough for the main lounge room. Falie is a relaxed host who met us on arrival.

We rented this cottage as part of accomodation for a business holding meetings in the Willunga area. The booking was a bit last minute and we were blown away by the beauty of the Evelyn homestead. The cottage is a delightful combination of olde-worlde style, with some antique furniture and knick-knacks, and modern appliances and comforts. We had rented 3... More

Evelyn Homestead was heaven, I wish my partner and I had more than 1 night in the cottage. The complimentary wine and chocolate made it even more special. Having a spa bath and then snuggling up in the robes was also amazing. We will be back for sure, thanks so much for a wonderful experience!
