We stayed in the Marlene which is a log cabin. Downstairs is one bedroom, the bathroom and a combined kitchen/dining/lounge. Upstairs is a loft bedroom. Construction is from timber with no noise isolation between floors. If you have people staying on the top floor and you sleep in the downstairs bedroom you will pretty much hear everything.
Accommodation overall was adequate but not outstanding. One bathroom is not enough for two couples bearing in mind the WC is in the same room as the bath facilities.
Cleanliness left a little to be desired. On the first morning we wanted to start with a cup of coffee but when we opened the filter tray for the dripolator it was completely mouldy as it hadn't been cleaned out after someone else had used it during a previous visit. We also found a beer bottle top under the kitchen table and two of the eating utensils weren't cleaned properly. Small things add up but seriously mouldy coffee machines must be a health hazard.
Perhaps it was just us being unaccustomed to McLaren Vale service but we didn't sense that it was a big deal for the owners who passed it off as terrible but there wasn't an overt apology forthcoming. Otherwise the hosts were generally pleasant and offered to give us tips on the best places to go, although detail wasn't readily forthcoming on certain attractions.
Apart from those issues 3 Divas is well located near the town centre and within an easy drive/ride to most McLaren Vale must sees as well as an easy drive to the beaches.
