Old Coach Road Estate (OCRE) was established in December 2019 after renovations of the house had been completed. Major works were required to update the house in an environmentally sustainable way. Every window and every external door was replaced with double glazed windows and doors. Solar panels were installed, the house was fully insulated and rainwater tanks added. The house sits proudly upon more than 200 acres overlooking Hindmarsh Valley and Victor Harbor. The property includes a large area of Heritage scrub, and revegetation using both direct seeding and planting of seedlings has resulted in the establishment of corridors of native vegetation emanating from the central scrub to all boundaries of the, now expanded, farm. It is estimated that the revegetation has resulted in more than 20,000 additional native trees and shrubs. OCRE has been set up to enable guests to experience nature at its best. Guests are welcome to explore the Heritage scrub close-up. They will enjoy the sounds of the many frogs in the spring-fed dams, and spotting kangaroos is just so easy with many seen feeding in the farm paddocks. Echidnas, red-bellied and brown snakes and even bandicoots are also seen on occasion. The birdlife is large in terms of both variety of species and bird numbers, and lovely Fairy Wrens and Welcome Swallows are routinely seen near the house.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

OCRE= Luxury. Comfort. Relaxation
OCRE has a feeling of class, comfort, character and luxury. In a rural setting it offers a calming and very private retreat from bustling city life. It offers very comfortable lounges to catch up on reading, music, conversation; the perfect well appointed kitchen, walking self-guided trails, landscape gazing & birdwatching from verandahs or behind big windows beside the fire. Divine beds. Very spacious but with private areas so shared accommodation works well for family and friendship groups.

Mid week 2 night stay
Simply the best accessible accommodation I have had the pleasure of using. Bathroom rails and shower chair, ramps that allow easy access to the bathroom and reduce tripping hazards. Fantastic views down the valley to Victor Harbor and the Bluff. Native bird and animal life, meticulously maintained grounds, spacious well stocked kitchen. Great hosts. Recommended for everyone, especially those seeking accessibility.

Wow!! Thank you Phil for this great review which illustrates the various modifications we have made to provide enhanced accessibility. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the native birds and wildlife, the fabulous views to Victor Harbor and the Bluff as well as the surrounding grounds. We have tried to make the kitchen ideal for eating in and we also have in-house chef options which the large kitchen facilitates too. Thanks so much for choosing to stay with us for a second time!

Serene getaway
An idyllic stay at Old Coach Road Estate. Beautiful accommodation with quality furnishings, linen and details. Loved sitting in front of the fire looking over the hills to the sea. A great area to explore if you can tear yourself away from the house!

Perfect farm luxury
We had the most beautiful weekend at Old Coach Road Estate! It was absolutely spotless and so well equiped for all of our cooking needs. The views were stunning and it was so cosy sitting next to the fire watching the weather roll over the hills. I wish we had stayed for longer! We’ll definitely be back!
