This stunning light and bright design sets the benchmark for nature-based holiday accommodation in South Australia. Ridgetop Retreats very cleverly blends sustainability with a high standard of comfort.

Floor to ceiling windows provide panoramic views of Deep Creek Conservation Park. With close access to many of the wonderful walking trails it’s an explorer’s delight. After a day of adventure simply sit back with a cup of joe and watch the kangaroos and birdlife from the window. Bliss!

The Vineyard REtreat McLaren Vale

The modern Escapods, Cadole Avalon and Cadole Sierra, truly are an elegant place to call home for a few nights. Overlooking the vineyards with three decks to choose from, you can admire the view from every angle. Sleep on a cloud in a King bed with pillow top mattress dressed with 1200 thread count Egyptian cotton linen sheets. Use the in-house pod machine and savour your morning coffee then relax under the rushing water of a rain shower. There’s even a fireplace for the cold winter evenings. They really have thought of everything at The Vineryard Retreat McLaren Vale. My bag is already packed!

Acorn Nook

Acorn Nook is a hidden gem tucked underneath a huge old acorn tree on the edge of Kuitpo Forest. This beautiful little Eco Pod is a part of Lazy Ballerina, a very popular South Australian winery. Wander over to the Cellar Door garden for wood oven pizza and a bottle of wine. Back at your rustic abode are all the creature comforts such as a fire pit, swing chair and bath out on the deck. This is the perfect way to unwind, relax and escape the hustle and bustle in your very own piece of paradise.
