Bedrooms 3
Property type farmhouse
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Come to this most private and unique getaway, located within an hour of Adelaide and 8 kilometres from Carrickalinga beach. Wake up with the birds singing and kangaroos grazing. The house is situated amongst 80 acres of beef grazing land. The rural and ocean views are simply spectacular. Built in 2008, the house is very comfortable. It features jarrah floorboards throughout and has a lovely open plan feel downstairs, with the bedrooms upstairs. Both upstairs and downstairs have reverse cycle air conditioners for heating and cooling. The wood fire also heats the whole house. (We can provide wood for a small charge or you can bring your own) Enjoy eating meals on the veranda and balcony, while watching the amazing sunsets. The stars on a cloudless night are incredible. The photos don't do justice to the location. Feel free to have a look before booking.

The property is located 5 minutes from Carrickalinga and Myponga beaches and is only 20 minutes from McLaren Vale. Normanville and Yankalilla townships provide supermarkets, pubs and a service station 10 minutes away. There are a range of restaurants within 10 minutes of the property.

To make it fair for everyone, we have kept our prices as low as possible. The prices are not negotiable.

If the place is left as you find it, no cleaning fee is charged. Otherwise, a $60 cleaning fee is taken from the bond.

Any normal 2WD car can get to this property. The driveway has been re-gravelled and graded in January 2017. You should drive slowly over the last 1.5 kilometres of the trip on dirt roads.

Escape the city life

  • 5 of 5

So close to Adelaide but so far, enjoyed the seclusion of the farm stay. Kangaroos in the morning and the cows grazing out the front door. A nice clean 2 bedroom cottage that fitted our family of 5 very easy. Easy drive to a lot of beautiful places in the flueriu peninsula.

Relaxing Rural Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Fleurieu Hilltop Escape. The home is secluded, with wonderful views over the valley and hills beyond. Lots of wildlife, especially kangaroos, to see and the cows and calves were amusing! We had everything we needed and the house was cosy and comfortable (we had cold, windy, wet weather for most of our stay). A great base to see the rest of the Peninsula or stay in and enjoy the views. Comfy bed, well set up kitchen and nice bathroom. Great communication from Hamish.

Awesome sunset!

  • 4 of 5

A great escape to the country while still close enough to beaches. If you're looking to sit back with a great view - especially for sun-downers - then this is the spot. Such a tranquil setting. The household essentials are all there, good but basic. We had such great weather, we didn't get a chance to use the fire :-( Hosts were truly lovely too. Would have been good to advise us of the somewhat rough terrain to get to the house - 4WD would be fine! Def recommend it. Thanks.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review David. Glad you had a nice time. Fair call about driveway. After winter rains, it has washed away a bit. It's being repaired within the next couple of weeks. Look forward to seeing you again. Cheers

little escape to the country

  • 5 of 5

Could only describe this place as a beautiful little escape to the country. Situated on a farm hilltop overviewing the valley and in the distance you can see the Normanville cove. Only minutes away from pubs and restaurants. Perfect for a family getaway, quiet and peaceful. Lovely vintage furniture. Will be coming back.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Hamish for a lovely stay in Fleurieu Hilltop Escape. It certainly was beautiful. Amazing views all around. Welcomed by an inquisitive little heard of cattle, and a huge frog later in the evening.

Owner's Response: Thanks for writing a review Trish. I haven't seen the frog. Hope he comes to visit again.

Unwind & recharge

  • 5 of 5

Perfect property to get away from the outside world and recharge the batteries. House was secluded and comfortable with everything you need. The weather let us down with the overall view but the moments of clear sky we did encounter, we took in every moment - it was stunning. We look forward to our next stay.
