"Home from home - with a touch of luxury" - guest review.

What was once Liz's studio has been converted into a cosy self contained cabin in the grounds of Jarramarrumba House.

Take a seat on your own private terrace under the shade of the vine while you gaze at the view and enjoy your complimentary platter of local wine, cheeses and chocolates.

Your room also includes luxury bath robes, free Wi-Fi and entry to The Cedars the home of Hans Heysen.

Peace, tranquility with views to the far hills and Lake Alexandrina some 60km away - you can't help but relax.

The Studio has an ensuite shower room and small lounge area. There is no kitchen as your breakfast is prepared for you and there are host of superb restaurants just a few minutes drive from us. There is however a fridge and tea or coffee making facilities.
Drinks on the terrace, or a stroll around the block - it's all good
