Very clean and tidy. Lovely view.

  • 4 of 5

Catherine was very good at answering queries. Our friends from Scotland loved the view and dinner at the Star of Greece was lovely and being able to walk there was excellent.

The one issue was that there was no hand towel in the upstairs bathroom.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Shanti is in a great location , we enjoyed our breakfast and dinner on the balcony overlooking the sea . The house is comfortable with everything we need , it has beautiful beach within walking distance and many nice ones not too far away and McLaren Vale is just 10mn away for our day tour of wine tasting .

Owner's Response: We always feel excited when others enjoy the deck out front. It was only Built in October 2015 just when the sunset started to move more west. As the cooler months arrive the sun will be setting in is spectacular. Join us again we reward return guests with specials and inclusions. Cathie & Daryl

Terrific Location

We really enjoyed our stay. The property has sea views and is well appointed. The balcony is great for relaxing and the magnificent Port Willunga beach is only a brief walk. We're likely to return!
