About Lulu Lunn
Hi, I am a viticulturist who is lucky enough to own and run a beautiful 40 acre vineyard in Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale. My husband and I and our 2 daughters have lived here for 27 years. I also have a love of cheese and cheesemaking and at present own 3 milking goats, one of which I am currently milking daily.
Lulu Lunn purchased this Cottage in 1993
Why Lulu Lunn chose Blewitt Springs
We built the house when we first moved here and lived in it for 8 years before my fabulously talented architecture husband got his way and built us a new home.
What makes this Cottage unique
This is a very comfortable house to stay in and enjoy all the benefits of country living. The views are fabulous and the sound of constant birdsong is a joy.

Beautiful, quaint, & clean!
Tintookie was a super place to stay! We loved the setting and the amazing view from the large back windows. It was quiet, and when we had time we walked around the area a little, which was full of vineyards. The cottage was very clean and well equipped - fresh eggs, coffee, breakfast items, and fresh home made bread! There were games and books as well as a variety of movies to choose from. The rooms were large and beds perfect. Lulu also had red and white wine from their own vineyard to try, which was amazing (we had the red). Would certainly stay here again! Thanks for a great stay!
A delightful and tranquil place overlooking the vines
Lulu is a lovely host. The cottage is very well set up and every little thing is thought of. This was our second visit and won’t be the last. We love the place.
Hi Helena and Michael,
Once again it was a pleasure having you to stay. It is always a pleasure to share our beautiful part of the Vales with such lovely guests.
I hope to see you again.
Lovely relaxing haven away from the city
Enjoyed our time at Tintookie, Lulu was an excellent host and our young children enjoyed milking the goats. The views of the vineyards were gorgeous!
You were lovely guests & it was a pleasure having you all to stay.
Fantastic property in the vines
Lovely spacious cottage about 10 minutes away from McLaren Vale but a world away from any stress!!! Very well provisioned with everything you need. Super comfortable bed, good shower, great bbq, gas heating as well as AC.
Thanks for your lovely review Sally. We love where we live and it is always great to share it, especially with guests as enthusiastic and as nice as you and Al. Best guests ever!
You are very welcome back anytime.
A beautiful place with a stunning vineyard view!
We absolutely loved our stay at Tintookie Vineyard! Nestled in the vines, the views from this beautiful place were incredible and the home was in immaculate condition, so cosy and set up with everything we could've asked for. Lulu was such a thoughtful host, going out of her way to make sure we were comfortable! I couldn't recommend staying here more!
Thanks Kate. I love sharing our beautiful property with others. Great guests by the way!
Lulu has prepared a tasteful decor throughout with all fittings of a high standard. The bed linen is as new, the bathroom with bath appears new and there are up to date touches such as free wifi and a Bluetooth music player as well as a player for the collection of DVDs.
She provides home made bread and a bottle of their own wine. The cottage is within the vineyard with a glorious outlook over the vines as far as the eye can see.
It has high chapel type ceilings which contribute to a feeling of airiness and spaciousness.
Her pantry is stocked with items for use and every utensil and appliance imaginable.
All the walls have collections of original paintings which delight with their quality.
The heating is so efficient that even when the winter temperatures were very cold we were snug and cosy.
There is a fully equipped laundry.
Everything was scrupulously clean and tastefully selected with colour coordinated rugs on the floors.
Board games and jigsaws were provided.
The lounge sofas are comfortable and also convert to beds.
Flowers greeted us and a blue wren and his jenny came close to the door. Rosella parrots gave a splash of colour.
Outdoor chairs and tables with a view over the vineyard would be lovely to use in warmer weather.
We also enjoyed walking around and exploring the property.
All in all we were so happy with everything that it has been a joy to be able to write this in appreciation and gratitude to Lulu.
There are plenty of Cellar Doors and Restaurant's within a 10 minute drive.
