Handy base for self drive stay

These two small StePHEM Sainsbury designed n eco shelters are ideally located in the small hamlet of Marananga, which in turn puts them within easy walking distance of Two hands wines, the Seppeltsfield Road Distillery and the Barossa Valley estate vineyard….plus the option for a run along the Seppeltsfield road early in the morning

Fro for ways further afield you’ll need a car, which is perfect as the villas are far enough away from the madding crowds to enjoy views over the vineyard and sounds of kookaburras, but close enough to Tanunda etc to top up on supplies

The hosts include generous breakfast provisions inc =bread, bacon, butter, pancake mix, eggs, milk and cereal etc

We’ve been considering in the eco sheets design for a while and it was interesting to see how the owners have incorporated kitchen, bed, seating and bathroom together with balcony and cross ventilation. It makes for a cosy couples retreat for a few days, although you will need to make arrangements for laundry in the township if staying for longer
Date of stay: January 2023
Room Tip: Ask for villa 2, just that little built more private..,..

It’s all about the hospitality. It has all the comforts and a few extras that you didn’t even know you needed. We traveled with friends from France and they just loved it. They loved feeling the bush and yet being so close to everything. Super comfy and yet you felt like you’re away from it all. Cheers Cath, thanks for looking after us

Everything provided, organised, clean. Amazing location on the edge of a young vineyard where you get back to nature. Birds, rabbits and kangaroos, sunrise every morning over the trees. We did not want to turn on the TV as it would spoil the tranquility. The unique accommodations close to many winery’s and distilleries.

Room tip: Villa Two is the best option further from the road

We stayed in the Villas a few weeks ago and were wowed from first sight. The properties are beautifully located amongst Cathy and Greg's own vines, and within easy walking distance of a handful of great cellar doors. The Villas themselves are incredible - we rented both. The interior layout is an inspired piece of design, with an amazing space for the exquisite bathroom, huge comfortable beds, front and rear decks, dining area and kitchen. The amenities were incredible - what Cathy hasn't thought of you won't need! We were well-provisioned for breakfast and snacks and the complimentary local wines were divine. The toiletries were divine and we really appreciated the care and though that had gone into so many details. Our stay was midweek so there wasn't anywhere local to eat dinner within walking distance - you'll either need to bring your own provisions or take a taxi to one of the nearby towns. We also had the pleasure of meeting Cathy and Greg, who are incredibly knowledgeable about the area and very lovely people. I can't recommend the Villas highly enough.

Room tip: both Villas are identical

Truely perfect few days. Beautiful and private setting, but close to many Barossa attractions. High quality finishes, and clearly a lot of thought and effort from our hosts. Generous selection of local produce and quality toiletries. Would highly recommend.

Cathy and Grant have a hidden gem here in the barossa
the villa was absolutely stunning and the attention to detail was sensational. Their suggestions on things to do and visit were absolutely brilliant too

waking up to birds singing with a coffee and breakfast on the desk in the morning sun, was one of the highlights

wish we could have stayed longer
