Get back to nature only 25 minutes from the Adelaide CBD! Be surrounded by native flora & fauna in your own fully functional tiny house. Set on the edge of a natural spring that runs into the Sturt River, this is the ideal spot for all nature lovers or those looking for that extra comfort from traditional camping.
“This is an utterly superb spot and I almost don’t want to write a review - I want to keep the news to myself! It really is a very special little tiny home on the creek, with the sound of the water flowing, the outdoor fire and reliable friendly visitors in the form of bandicoots, birds and even a little antechinus. Tim is a wonderful host and the place has everything you need. Thank you Tim!”
A cosy, curated cottage with a rustic vibe, Ode to the Orchard is surrounded by the Adelaide Hills’ finest wineries and sits high on 16 acres. It is one of the original stone homes of the area and enjoys stunning views of picturesque Lenswood. There is no better place to relax: soak in the gorgeous claw-foot bath looking out to the stars, enjoy that glass of local red by the fire, or try out our apple crumble recipe in the vintage wood-fired Aga.
“From the moment you arrive, you feel welcomed and beautifully disconnected from the hustle and bustle of the city. The place was clean and the cutest and comfortable space to unwind. Waking up and sitting on the porch outside, listening to the peaceful sounds is amazing. The fireplace warms up the house and makes it very cosy. The outdoor bath when the sun has gone down is the perfect wind down. Also recommend getting the wine and platter on a arrival, the Apple sauce was amazing. There was information about the places to go around the area. I definitely will be coming back when i can, thank you so much for having me.”

“The earthship was incredible, from the first sight of it the attention to detail was amazing. But walking in doors on a 37 degree day the green house was thriving and the living area was a cool 21 degree. The earthy floors allowed us to feel grounded immediately and relaxed. The food provided was organic produce of the best quality, the bed is of the highest standard to allow a truly enjoyable stay. Great bathroom facilities, the water gets both very hot and cold which is perfect for practicing Naturopathic Hydrotherapy techniques. It was a relaxing property with plenty of wild blackberries to pick. On the second day it was 43 degrees outside but still 21 degrees in the living area. The earthship has an incredible design and we will be going back in winter to see how it functions in the cooler months, The 2 nights was not enough, we returned home to a hot bungalow and wished we were in the cool earthship. Thank you!! We Highly Recommend!”
