“This is a truly unique opportunity to stay in an Earthship and experience how calming and peaceful it is. Learning the principles through reading the information available enabled us to learn and gain an understanding of how clever this system really is. The outlook is gorgeous and the ambience within the building made from recycled and natural materials makes you feel calm and recharged. I loved the rendered walls with their niches and soft corners, the patterns and light coming in through the bottle walls as well as the beautiful coloured glass terrazzo floor in the entrance and the bathroom. We will be sure to spread the word about our experience and are looking forward to bringing some of the principles in to our everyday life. We are grateful for this opportunity and admire the work you are doing to enable ourselves and others gain a deeper understanding of sustainable living techniques through the workshops you run and being able to stay in the Earthship.”

“We were needing a stay close to the Adelaide airport and Noel & Valerie's place is only 6 minutes away. The bonus was having nice accommodations as well. They communicated to us that they provide some breakfast items. I mentioned that I have Celiac Disease but not to worry as I always carry food items with me. To our greateful surprise, they provided GF bread & cereal as well as other cereals, butter, OJ, milk, & jams. We had a couple of issues and I wrote to Noel and he was right there in a few minutes and resolved them. The place is comfortable and we would highly recommend staying with Noel & Valerie.”
Scrupulously clean with everything you need for an extended stay, Ikhaya is in a leafy heritage garden suburb on the 200 bus route 15 min from the city centre. There are trendy coffee shops, take-away restaurants, and shops within walking distance. It's also a good base for doing a Kangaroo Island tour, exploring wineries, beaches or quaint villages like Hahndorf and Lobethal, TDU, Clipsal and many festivals. You’ll love our place because of the privacy, convenience and all the comforts of home.
“A cosy yet delightful place to stay, the accommodation is outstanding for one person, excellent for two. A combination of excellent taste and subtle touches of class aligned with literally every little thing thought of, every facility provided made it one of the best places I have stayed in using AirBnb over the years. Very rarely does a place tick all boxes and then some. This one does. If I could give it more than five stars I would.”
