Winery Tours: We recommend using Chook's Little Winery Tours. All our guests have really enjoyed Chook's knowledge and hospitality.

Our recommendation on places to eat when staying with us:

The Salopian Inn - McLaren Vale - Open Daily for lunch and Thursday, Friday & Saturday for dinner. Bookings essential. We get rave reviews about the Salopian Inn from our guests.

Russell's Pizza - Willunga - Open Friday & Saturday nights. Bookings essential. Everyone we have sent there has loved it.

The Victory Hotel - Sellicks Beach - Open 7 days. Bookings preferred. Best at lunch time so you can enjoy the views.

The Aldinga Bay Cafe - Aldinga Beach - Closed Tuesdays. Bookings preferred. Delicious Indian cuisine.

Our Place @ Willunga Hill - Willunga Hill - Sunday Lunch Only. Bookings essential. A wonderful celebration of Italian food; a unique dinning experience.

Home Grain Bakery - Aldinga - All Day - No Bookings necessary. Trendy bakery with excellent cakes, pies and coffees.

Blessed Cheese - McLaren Vale - Open 7 days. No Bookings necessary. The delicious food in our photos is from Blessed Cheese.

Thing to do & places to see:

McLaren Vale Cheese & Wine Trail - Available 7 days. Bookings essential. Order and collect your hamper & trail map from Blessed Cheese in McLaren Vale. A perfect way to visit some of the best local wineries.

Visit wineries. Available 7 days. No bookings necessary. Some of my favorites are Coriole Vineyards (picturesque and I love their whites), Battle of Bosworth (certified organic wines) & Oliver's Taranga Vineyards (small & welcoming).

Walk along the beach (just in front of where you are staying) toward the cliffs, then walk up the stairs to the top of the cliffs and back to the house via the small forest (a leisurely 45-60 minutes).

Watch dolphins from the top of the cliffs right near the car park between Maslin Beach and Aldinga Beach (walking 60 minutes or driving 5 minutes).

Visit Guan Yin - Selliks Hill - Open 7 days. No Booking needed. Made in China, then shipped and assembled here this amazing statue, situated on a hill overlooking our southern beaches, is simply stunning. Lunch at the Victory Hotel and then visit Guan Yin.

Willunga Farmers’ Market – Willunga – Saturday mornings only. Adelaide’s trendiest farmers’ market . Local and seasonal produce only.

Maslin Beach Scape

We are located in Maslin Beach overlooking the sea, cliffs and hills. Maslin Beach has been rated the 6th best beach in Australia from 11,761 beaches in the 101 Best Beaches Australia 2017 list. This is a wonderful achievement and we could not agree more.

We are also located within 8 minutes drive to McLaren Vale where numerous wineries provide cellar door tastings and quality dining experiences. Also within easy reach is historical Willunga with its very successful Farmers' Market offering local produce every Saturday morning. Maslin Beach is situated on the pristine Fleurieu Peninsula and is a convenient 45 minutes drive from either Adelaide or Victor Harbor. You will be able to explore, relax and refresh with us at Maslin Beach Scape and we look forward to meeting you soon!

This property has been designed as a place for adults to relax and unwind therefore we do not provide facilities for children however we are more than happy to recommend accommodation that would be suitable for families.

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

This property has amazing views over the beach and cliffs of Maslin Beach. Our host (Bill) was excellent. The food was amazing! Thoroughly relaxing! (be warned though, one end of Maslin beach is a nudist beach! But it's far enough away not to bother you.)

A little slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

I had a priceless 2 nights & days break, a walk from where I live. I'd go again! Bill was superb, as was his breakfast & hot chocolate.
