“Enchanting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

We stayed at the evelyn over the weekend for our anniversary. Just one step in and we felt like we were somewhere else already, which is why we came! The breakfast/food provisions were incredible and we ate to our heart's content. Thank you! There's bathrobes and fluffy towels that will dress you like royalty, and the jacuzzi is such a fantastic experience. We did not want to get out of it. The bedroom was lovely and sheets exquisite. The window might need to be upgraded tho, the weekend was windy and it slammed all night even though they were shut. The tv was massive and channels were plentiful, couches comfy and kitchen appliances not only top notch but easy to wash as well. We couldn't find cookin oil tho!
Overall great experience and will definitely recommend to others!

My partner and i stayed here a few weeks ago! We had the best time! After only 1 night here i was very sad to leave! Faylee the owner was brilliant. There was so much food for breakfast we ate like a king and queen! Hopefully one day we will be back! P.S the spa was brilliant! It felt just like home!

Just spent 5 days in Willunga staying at the beautiful and cosy Evelyn Cottage. Nestled in a pretty garden the cottage offered comfortable living and sleeping accommodation. Provisions for a hardy breakfast and facilities to cook or BBQ when not dining out. Super helpful Falie assisted with recommendations and bookings for restaurants. Highly recommend this lovely cottage.

Beautiful cottage surrounded by peaceful, serene garden. The Main street was a 3 minute walk away, but once through the driveway gate, you could be miles from anywhere, such a peaceful setting. The bed [1 of 2] was ultra comfortable and the quality linen was a bonus. The pantry was extremely well stocked and the breakfast provisions were fresh and plentiful. Plenty of cafes/ restaurants in Willunga, and McLaren Vale is just a 5 minute drive away providing plenty of wineries and even more food options. We particularly enjoyed our dining experiences at Russell's Pizza in Willunga and Red Poles at McLaren Vale. Sunday Sessions at Tapestry Wines made for a fabulously relaxing afternoon. Thank You Falie for your terrific accommodation, and the warm greeting on arrival was a lovely touch.
Ideal for couples but easily accommodates 2 couples without being in each others space.
The open fireplace would be nice experience in the winter months. We would definitely recommend a visit to Evelyn Homestead.

Beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable cottage, providing every thing you need to just walk in and have a holiday. Lovely outdoor eating area set on a large block with beautiful gardens. Very private and quiet.
Close to Main Street of Willunga and wineries and short distance from the beach.
Highly recommended.

Evelyn cottage was a lovely, spacious, relaxing place from which we could explore the beauty of the area. Willlunga is a very pretty town and cottage is very close to the main street with cafes, shops, restaurants and hotels. A short drive to the beautiful coast and also minutes drive to McClaren Vale wine region. Fit people could walk or cycle along the paths from here to the neighbouring wineries. A lovely comfortable bed, pretty decoration throughout the cottage, full kitchen and laundry, double spa and open fireplace. There is also a spacious front yard which adds privacy, off street parking and a covered area with barbeque out the back.

We chose to go to McLaren Vale on the coldest, wettest weekend we've had this winter. Evelyn Homestead was a warm and welcoming haven. Warm new lounge and dining areas with plenty of provisions. Rest of house is faithful to the period it was built. Whole house is beautifully decorated and has plenty of spaces to be together or to retreat to. Will definitely be making a repeat visit.
