A great escape from everyday life. We spent two nights and had a great time. The property is situated on a peaceful countryside and is very quiet. The communal courtyard, sunroom and lounge room are the perfect place to relax and read with a glass of the local organic wine or a coffee. the hotrock massage is fantastic and highly... More

They're not workers there just friendly people that do the best they can to take care... More

Unusual, Quirky and relaxing. A definite breath of fresh air. I had a two day spa stay which was fantastic. Very friendly staff and delicious food and wine. Not the cheapest, but definitely worth it. A great place for a unique weekend wind down.

We did not stay here for the health benefits, but because we wanted to stay somewhere different. -WELL WE DID GET THAT. It is a very interesting old home, but reminded me a bit of an Indian Ashram. There was continuous piped chanting and strange bearded backpackers (wwoofers) loitering around in the guest areas, bent over their ipads-which is unusual... More

Beautiful location, relaxing and serene. Truly gives you the opportunity to get of the grid. Services are great as is the food. Cater for dietry needs and great selection of organic Wines. Only a short drive to Port Elliot beach and the main street, and Victor Harbour not far away. We'll be back again 😃😎
