10/10. The most lovely private cottage. If you thought about something it was there. From a fully stocked kitchen with a lovely breakfast basket, extra towels, hair dryer, candles, blankets, bbq, spa, fire place, central heating, outdoor setting front and back and the list goes on. It was like being at home the house was so well equipped. The garden was stunning with views into the vines. Thank you!

Much love Jas and Dave, December 2020.

We had an incredible stay at Nina and Phil's property. It was spacious, private and very luxurious. Everything you could need for a short or long term stay was easily accessible. Waking up to an incredible view over the picturesque region each morning was magical. All amenities such as a spa bath, fresh rain water to drink, Nespresso machine and your own private wine cellar to try the vineyard's wine and beautiful outdoor area equipped with a barbecue, were available. Nina and Phil were extremely welcoming and always available if we ever needed anything. We can't wait to stay again in this beautiful location in Blewitt Springs which is a very short drive from McLaren Vale and perfectly located from the shops, nearby wineries and breweries. 

Tara and John, November - December 2020.

 

We had a fabulous stay at Nina's place over the weekend. The house was simply beautiful and we spent the majority of our time outside soaking up the beautiful garden and view. We loved the accommodation so much, we cut our winery hopping day short so we could spend more time there. The attention to detail was incredible. The place felt so peaceful and romantic. We enjoyed the spa, candles, fairy lights and ambience of the place. We had a hearty breakfast included and complimentary wine, cheese and snacks. I couldn't recommend this place highly enough. We hope to be back!

Ali and friends, November 2020.

 

Nice to get away and stay somewhere quiet. Peaceful and attention to detail. So much thought and love has obviously gone into this magnificent home. Thank you!

We had a great stay in this lovely old home. Great house, well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds and lovely garden where you can enjoy the terrific view with a glass of wine.

Thank you so much for this incredible place. Not only has the space been relaxing and cosy, but you've thought of so many things to just make it so much better to nourish.

Wow what a wonderful winter wonderland!! Amongst the Vines Retreat is a beautifully appointed home with fabulous amenities, everything we needed was there plus more for our 2 night stay! Loved the cosy fire, comfy warm bed, spectacular views from every window overlooking the vines and hills. Just amazing!! A real hidden gem and we will be back for sure.

Angela and Brenton, June 2020.

 

Immaculate! We loved our stay and hope to come back. Thank you

Kelly and Leon, June 2020.

 

Amongst the Vines Retreat is truly special. My family originally owned the property and it is where I grew up. To be able to come back and visit such a unique place was very personal to me and my fiancé. Nina is a great host and they have kept a lot of original touches in the cottage. You will love your stay here and I wouldn’t recommend anywhere else in McLaren Vale!

Brittany and Jamie, April 2020.

 

Nina's place is a beautiful, romantic retreat. Located in such a beautiful part of McLaren Vale with plenty of privacy and every comfort. There were generous, thoughtful amenities throughout. We especially enjoyed cozy evenings in front of the fireplace and the view over the vineyards from the front porch. Would return in a heartbeat. 

Morgan and Louis, April 2020. 

 

What an amazing place. Great location, right in the heart of wine country but only 20 mins from some beautiful beaches. Best of both worlds. Very peaceful and private accommodation with everything you could ever need. Can’t recommend this place enough if you are visiting McLaren Vale. Thanks Nina.

Steve and Joy, March 2020.

Thank you! It was perfect.

Rob and Nicole, February 2020.

Chloe and friends, October 2019.

What an incredible place! The attention to detail and very thoughtful touches throughout every room in the house were just wonderful! This is truly a magical and relaxing place - both indoors and outdoors. The views are just breathtaking and the outdoor space to sit and unwind and relax so very special. Sparkling clean with so many amenities and an amazing array of breakfast choices as well as wine and snacks! So very special. Will definitely be coming back.

Lara, October 2019.

Absolutely beautiful house and property. Thank you!

Jenna and Mags, October 2019.

We really enjoyed our time at 'Amongst the Vines Retreat' sitting in the little gazebo watching the sunlight change over the vineyards while sharing a cheese platter and enjoying the property’s own wine was a fabulously relaxing way to spend the weekend. The house is spotlessly clean, and all those little extras have been thoughtfully catered for. Blewitt Springs is a great central location to explore the many wineries and beautiful beaches in the Southern area. Great stay.

Ali and Ray, September 2019.
