Papershell Lodge is located at our property in historic Willunga. The Lodge looks out toward world class beaches and the McLaren Vale wine region, both only 5 minutes drive away. Papershell is a 9 acre almond orchard in conversion to a bio-diverse food forest and we encourage you to pick your own fruit & veg and say hello to our animals. The Lodge is a beautiful cedar-clad self-contained studio, built onto our homestead. It features a yoga studio downstairs, with the accommodation upstairs.
“Jessica's place is absolutely beautiful, great use space, very modern and incredible views from the balcony. The grounds are stunning, I absolutely loved exploring the orchard and vegetable garden. Jessica was a very accommodating host, clearly a lot of thought goes into the special touches. The home made bread and organic produce was delicious. Would definitely recommend for a short trip away.”

Access is via side gate. Car parking is available in the front of the property. There is a range of surfboards and Kayaks for use.
“Red's Retreat is the perfect spot to spend a few days and explore beautiful Aldinga and surrounding areas. The retreat is very clean and well appointed. Angela is welcoming and her little touches are seen throughout the room in tasteful decorations and features. The bed is comfortable with ample pillows and bedding, fresh fluffy towels and soap and shampoo are provided in the bathroom. The kitchen is well stocked with all of the basic necessities as well as a lovely 1st morning breakfast and tea, coffee and milk. Ample appliances, crockery, cutlery and glassware and pots and pans allow for easy meal preparation and cooking. There is a little area to sit outside and enjoy the location in the scrub, complete with birdlife and the heady smell of eucalyptus and natives. We could also spend time inside with a large flatscreen TV or peruse the books and magazines thoughtfully provided. Having wifi was also helpful to stay in touch with family. Angela recommended some excellent places to eat out also and The Victory Hotel is definitely worth a visit. However, the absolute highlight was that the resident dog Ellie visited us daily to say hello. She also had 7 adorable puppies, just 6 weeks old, who were more than happy to provide cuddles on request! Thank you so much Angela and family for sharing Red's retreat with us. Warm regards Janine & Roy”
Our unique 127 acre cattle property has stunning views, private lake (offering catch & release fishing), beautiful landscaped gardens to relax in and abundant bird life. Our cattle enjoy being hand fed and we now have a small herd of colourful cute mini goats. Great photo opportunities and something for every one. Conveniently located within easy reach of shops, cafes, world renown wineries and restaurants in McLaren Vale and historic Willunga, beautiful beaches, and Victor Harbor.
“Leawarra was the perfect place for us to relax and re-energise. Carolyn and Harry were the perfect hosts - friendly, helpful and accommodating, but also respectful of our privacy and our space. We loved the tour of the farm, and the house itself was spotlessly clean and charming. Welcoming gestures like the freshly picked roses on the coffee table were appreciated! We loved the peace and quiet on the farm, but also the fact that Willunga was only a short 10 minute drive away. We would definitely recommend Leawarra and hope to stay again in the future.”
