About this listing

Our place is centred in the McLaren Vale wine region overlooking 10 acres of vineyard and native scrub. You’ll love our place because of the beautiful views across the vineyard to the Willunga Hills, the native birds and wildlife, the peace and serenity and the fresh air.

The property is a hand crafted mud brick building with cypress pine floor boards. Amenities are basic (composting toilet and solar electricity) but comfortable and add to the experience.

Interaction with guests

We live in the town of McLaren Vale, just a few minutes drive away. So whilst we'll leave you completely on your own, if you need assistance or tips on where to eat, drink or visit in the region we are happy to help out and just a text message away.

A great place for a quiet getaway surrounded by vineyards but with everything still so close. Be prepared to enjoy the night by candle light (which can certainly add to the experience) unless you want to go outside to start the generator.

"Off the Grid" is a secluded and well appointed getaway nestled amongst the vines.

We had a lovely break away in the McLaren Vale. The views from the house are amazing. The cottage is very clean and the bed was comfy!

Perfect spot for seeing the McLaren Vale wineries. Stunning views from the property and Helen has great tips and recommendations of where to go and what to see whilst you're in the area.

The experience of being "off the grid" was unique (although the house has everything you need, it does make you think about how much water and electricity you're using), and the location was stunning. We loved it!

This place is great to recharge your batteries and have great wines with stunning views. I would suggest using the good advise Helen can offer on the local wine scene and take advantage of it. One of the best AirBnB places in the State!!! Thank you Helen - we'll be back!!!

Helen's place was perfectly located for our purposes (attending Coriole Festival) and would also be great for pottering around the myriad of boutique wineries in the area. It's an off the grid home, spacious, well-equipped and in a beautiful setting. It was immaculately clean and we enjoyed staying here very much. Thanks for leaving the lights on for our late arrival, Helen!
