Our accommodation was lovely and quite unique, our room was very clean and had coffee, tea, mini bar etc, the only let down if I want to be picky was one packet of biscuits which I thought was a bit stingy for 2 people. The view of the grape vines and property was very pleasant and relaxing.

We are already planning our next trip back!! So welcoming from the minute you arrive. We stayed in the homestead and it was absolutely calming for the mind and body. Huge bath, double shower and the bed was so comfortable. Then the restaurant, food and service spectacular. Almost forgot the wine, we didn’t waste a drop. We had a wonderful time. Thank you
