Secluded property nestled in hills

Pros: Seclusion. Beautiful grounds. Breakfast provisions. Wood heater.
Quick nights getaway and it ticked all the boxes. Private, beautiful grounds and yet close enough to restaurants/wineries for a quick drive. We were lucky enough to have a warm sunny afternoon sitting on the terrace outside, very relaxing. Fireplace ready to go was a welcome addition later on. Villa would suit 2 couples - was a little big for just us and décor in main bedroom was little dated when compared to rest of the renovated house. But that's just being picky, it was a lovely stay.

Thank you so much for your thoughts and we are thrilled you enjoyed your stay at our Villa Lemoni! Would you believe we are renovating the Master Bedroom in the last week of September, as we simply ran out of time when we were doing our big renovation! It makes me think I'm on the right track when reading your feedback, and the master bedroom will certainly be in line with the rest of the property once completed! We trust we have the opportunity to welcome you once again to our lovely part of the world! Thanks so much for being our Guests! Mandy

Beautiful setting

This was our 3rd stay at the nest and it was as wonderful as the previous stays. The location is wonderful, plentiful provisions and indulgent facilities. The walks around the whole property were delightful and allows you to view their other b & b properties. Lots of lovely detail greet you upon arrival and the local birdlife and other creatures are also out and about. Would have no hesitation in recommending AHCC to anyone wanting a peaceful and relaxing place to stay.

Sublime and magical

Pros: Everything. Cosiness.
Cons: Nothing could be improved. This is perfection
Location: Hahndorf nearby and we fell in love with that. Heaps of wineries, chocolate factory, walking trailes, Strathalbyn.
The house is located above a lake with its own rowing boat and full of perch. It is not overlooked by anyone. The house is like something from a fairy tale. On arrival the heaters were on, music playing softly and the fridge full of food and champagne. The food was renewed but you never saw the staff. Cold weather but the open log fire reinforced the sense of stepping back into history. Garden full of flowers and bees, cows in the pasture. And mod cons - radiators, fan heater, TV and dvd player and a choice of dvds, spa bath and the most comfortable of beds. I didn't want to leave. Most amazing and best place I have ever stayed in.
