This is bird lovers paradise with lots of bushy garden attracting many small birds and occasionally a wedge tail eagle or two circling above.
Some of Australia’s finest coffee is roasted just next door, with tastings available every Sunday in a relaxed and friendly setting.
Please be aware that if you stay on a Saturday night, Dawn Patrol Coffe opens early on a Sunday morning. You will receive a free barista made coffee for each guest and are welcome to join the other visitors to a tasting or relaxing on the lawn. This means that while a stay at Container65 is extremely peaceful, Sunday mornings can be busy and bustling with activity just next door.
Note: Our containers’ waste water goes to a grey water system and out on to the garden. We would prefer to only wash natural products down the sink and therefore provide all soap, body wash, shampoo etc.
Guests have their own private access to the container. Our one acre block is accessible to all of our small assortment of friendly farm animals including our mischievous sheep, Dorothy, Alf the Alpaca, group of chickens, Mrs. Doubtfire the rooster and relaxed fox terrier, Milo.
We ask that guests please keep gates closed at all times to keep the animals within the property.
We live in the main house on the property, however the container is completely separate and located a reasonable distance away. We like to greet our guests and you may see us around the gardens as this is our home. We are happy to interact as much or little as you like and can provide you with some great recommendations for experiences in the area if you like.
This area is heaven for foodies and wine lovers. A short walk down our road will take you to the fantastic Yangarra Estate winery and many more cellar doors are just a few minutes drive away. There are some stunning walks through Kuitpo Forest and Onkaparinga River National Park, both close by. Kangarilla is about 20minutes drive to the beach, and 45 minutes from Adelaide City.
You will need a car in this area as there is no public transport. If you need a lift to/from an event please ask us in advance and we may be able to provide this service for a small extra cost.
Our animals are friendly and inquisitive at times. They have full access to all areas of the block. For this reason we do not allow pets and ask that you are mindful of them and their home.
