“Wonderful escape and lovely house.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2008

It was lovely to come to the Coonawarra from Melbourne and stay in such a grand house as 'just the two of us!'

It was refreshing to find a place that actually looks like the pictures represented on the marketing material!

The place was wonderful, the firplace kept the house warm and the aspect was gorgeous.

I wanted to immediately bring three of my closest friend couples for a weekend away and get a chef in to cook for us. (Maybe someone can advise a local we could call upon?)

The only negative about the property was that our bed was a bit of a banana and quite uncomfortable. A sensor light outside would also be great, as we struggled to see the decking and front door upon our return on the two nights we were out late.

This 4 bedroom modern house is set amonst vineyards in the Coonawarra wine district, 2 kilometres from the town of Penola and in the heart of wine tasting strip - all the Coonawarra wineries are within easy reach by car.
The house is built in contemporary Australian beach house style - lots of corrugated iron, large picture window, polished wood floors. The 3 double bedrooms are very comfortable with ensuite bathrooms and air conditioning. The 4th bedroom has single beds. Children under 12 not allowed.
The bedrooms are housed in two wings of the house with the area inbetween set aside as open plan dining/ living and kitchen. There are ample verandahs and decks to catch the sun, or escape into the shade. There is a BBQ on the verandah and a large wooden table in the courtyard protected by an overhanging grape vine.
One of the best features of this house is that it can be let to a couple or 2 couples and the rate is according to the number of bedrooms used. So you can stay as a couple for as little as $195.00 per night. The fridge is stocked with eggs bacon mushrooms tomatoes for a great breakfast and there are ample supplies of tea coffee juice oil salt pepper etc, so that making meals is made easy.
