Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful property, relaxing stay My husband, 2 y.o. daughter and I stayed for a long weekend in May. It is a lovely house set on a beautiful property. I was in regular contact with Antony, the host, over our 4 day stay and he couldn’t have been more accommodating and helpful. He went out of his way to make sure we were looked after. Pros: - well equipped kitchen with everything you could need and high quality appliances - very generous breakfast provisions provided by host - lots of ‘extras’ like a bottle of wine, nibbles, chocolate and also things like olive oil, vinegar, a big selection of tea and coffee and jams, etc - very comfortable beds, great quality sheets and towels - swing-set out back – an added bonus if you are travelling with a child like we were! - Close to many walking trails - lovely, warm open fire (it’s huge!) Things to consider: - not spotlessly clean (as an example the BBQ was too dirty to use when we arrived however the facilities inside were a more than suitable alternative) not an major issue for us but may be for some - you are asked to clean before you leave (however this means you are not charged a cleaning fee on top) - you are reasonably far from the centre of the Barossa – it’s about a 20 min drive to Tanunda. Not an issue for us as we wanted peace and quiet and were happy to drive on the traffic-less roads and enjoy the scenery. Thanks Antony for a lovely stay. We hope to be back one day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely cozy house and brilliant location We greatly enjoyed our stay. The house was cute. The house had great features including a lovely fire. It was delightful to sit back and get warm by the fire. The hot tub was great, especially when it was cold outside we were nice and warm in the hot tub. The house had everything needed and the owners were lovely to provide wine and snacks and breakfast in the fridge. Very well run and organised house. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and relaxing We loved LOVED our stay at the old schoolhouse. From the stunning period details (the kids were mystified by the old telephone!) to the sumptuous beds and pillows and graceful, peaceful grounds, everything was just perfect. Anthony was such a friendly and wonderful host and the kitchen was packed with goodies galore. Highly recommended- this is truly a unique property.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very nice host! a house with story! perfect! We are a family travelling with elder and kid. Both of them love the house so much that they didn't even want to leave the house. The spa is spectacular. The shower is nice. The beds are very comfy. The host provided perfect suggestion for foods and wines, and they've been very helpful. Will definitely come back again.
