Luxury wine adventure

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the Mclarenvale and it wasn't only due to the amazing wineries in the area but also the superb accomodation. Every detail thought of down to make up remover wipes in the bathroom .

Also very generous provisions included in the tariff. Chocolates chips nibbles, wine soft drinks beer and we were pleasantly surprised by the fireplace already set to go and large on deck BBQ which we used on the first night after buying some beautiful meat at the local butcher. Would highly recommend this property .

Thank you

We stayed at Manhattan Cottage, which was superb! Very modern with ALL amenities and a fabulous kitchen stocked with absolutely any utensil you may require. We were also provided with lovely fresh bread & breakfast fare.The cosy lounge had a great log fire, which of course we took full advantage of. Our hosts were extremely friendly & a great source of knowledge for restaurants, vineyards etc within the area. They provided us with a bottle of wine & several packets of snacks, which we appreciated.The outside spa is built up on a platform to ensure the view is able to be admired - you can actually see the ocean!The location of the property is very convenient for visiting the many vineyards.We had a wonderful stay & will certainly be returning!

Slice of Heaven.We decided to come down over the Easter weekend and loved every minute of it. From the moment we entered this property we were impressed. Attention to detail was amazing. Whether it was the welcome basket with hand written note or the coffee machine for the morning post the red wine or the fresh bread or the little jar of lollies (that I raided a little too much). Not to mention the great music dock that played tunes for most of the night.The location is perfect with breathtaking views of vineyards and hills in the distance. We were more than happy venturing out during the day and settling in by the fireplace in the evening with some wine and cheese and a BBQ.There is also an amazing Jacuzzi up the top of the hill that is the best vantage point for watching the sun slowly hide. Just bring some bubbles for it. Anyway, we will be back and the Adelaide friends we stayed with there will be as well. Thanks for a great time.
