"Kolendo" is set in 5 acres of native bush with spectacular views across the Spencer gulf. We are just up the freeway and only 20 minutes from Adelaide CBD. The garden is teeming with wildlife, from kangaroos to echidnas.

It is ideal either as a getaway for weary Adelaideans, or for interstate/overseas visitors wanting a base in the hills close to the city.

It sleeps six. There are three bedrooms, two with queen size beds, the other has two singles. One of the bedrooms has an ensuite. There is a second (smaller) bathroom which leads off the laundry. The kitchen is fully equipped where you can cook up a storm! And then you have a choice of places to eat - the dining room seats 8 or outside on the deck which seats 8 which has a gas-burning BBQ. Enjoy watching the sun set over the sea whilst you eat inside or out.


There are spaces for everyone, the sitting room has a wood burning stove for those cold winter nights and a large LCD TV together with an extensive library of books and DVDs. The games room has a small LCD TV and a choice of table tennis or pool. There are also plenty of board games and a large expanse of gravel outside for playing petanque. The lobby has a wood stove and a chair for curling up with a book. All rooms have great views either of the top gardens or down across the the hills. The deck can be accessed from three different rooms.

There is a front loading washing machine, iron and ironing board and a dishwasher. The kitchen has a family sized fridge/freezer.

The sitting room and kitchen/dining room are reverse cycle air conditioned and all of the bedrooms have ceiling fans.

You will have the whole property to yourselves, with no neighbours in sight! Put on your walking shoes and explore.

The property has a circular drive and there is plenty of parking next to the house.

Please note that the WiFi operates over the mobile network (Not ADSL) and so is only suitable for web browsing. Streaming and file downloads will quickly exhaust the monthly download limit. This is a temporary arrangement as the NBN rollout in the area is nearly complete.

Local Amenities

Crafers is a 2 min drive from Kolendo where there is a Post Office, the recently refurbished Crafers Inn which has a fine range of beers and wine and Jimmie’s wood oven pizza restaurant. There is also Indis Indian Takeaway, Crafers Gourmet Deli and a Pizza Bar.

Stirling is just a couple of minutes further, with hotels, supermarkets, banks, restaurants and much more.

In addition there are some very interesting local walks starting right outside our front gate.

Local Attractions

Crafers has an excellent bus service to local towns and into the Adelaide CBD. It is only 15km from Adelaide CBD on the freeway and within easy reach of regional delights including the Riverland, Barossa, McLaren Vale and all the gourmet treats and activities that the Adelaide Hills offer.

Use Kolendo as a base to explore the Adelaide Hills or to catch up with family and friends if you are visiting from interstate. It is ideal for families with kids.

There are dozens of wineries and restaurants scattered amongst the beautiful countryside. Historic Hahndorf is just up the freeway and deserves a lengthy visit and Monarto Zoo about half an hour away.

Mount Lofty Scenic lookout, Botanic Gardens and the Cleland Conservation Wildlife Park are just a few minutes from Kolendo and there are extensive walking trails. The Eagle Mountain Bike Park is right next door (200 metres).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Winter Getaway Just want to say thanks, we loved our stay at Kolendo, the house was perfect and the heating was great. The kids loved being able to hike around the "backyard" and get amongst nature and splash around the creek. Even lucky enough to see a wallaby which was fantastic. Thanks again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hills and views! We had a great stay at Crafers. The house was very comfortable with fantastic heating facilities...which of course was a saving grace on the cold rainy nights! Would have been great to see the inclusion of some basic breakfast needs such as individual butter or vegemite etc. However overall an excellent place for kids and families.
