Will we have to socialise with the hosts?
We tend to be around for breakfast and to welcome guests. We give you advice about all the things to do in McLaren Vale, but we leave you alone and give you privacy. The sitting-room is for guests only – we hosts have our own private space. That said, we have made some wonderful friends and have many returning guests.
Will we be the only guests?
Highly unlikely – we have 2 guest rooms – so the chances of other people staying at the same time are quite high (unless, of course, you book both of our rooms). While your ensuite room is private, there is also the shared guest lounge, dining room and courtyard.
Do I need to cook my own breakfast?
We prepare, cook and serve you your breakfast. You have the choice of a fantastic 3 course Full Taste or a Light Taste breakfast. Breakfast is served in the guest lounge around a communal breakfast table.

Breakfast is served between 8am and 9.30am. We are happy to serve a Light Taste continental breakfast anytime before 8am.
What if I have allergies or a dietary restriction?
PLEASE! Let us know well in advance and we will do out best to make you something to fit your diet. Don’t tell us in the morning just as you are about to sit down at the table. please bear in mind that if you prefer a particular brand of soy/almond milk or gluten free bread or cereal etc, you might be wise to bring your own.
