Luxury McLaren Vale Accommodation

For some of our guests Karawatha Cottages is a boutique hotel or a weekend escape, for some it is a comfy B&B or a home away from home and for others, it is a retreat. Whatever it is for you - we think labels shouldn't matter. Karawatha Cottages is a place to stay, relax, celebrate, love, laugh, re-charge and enjoy the good things in life.
Come here  to PONDER, UNWIND and RELISH - and find your personal luxury

Our Cottages

Nestled on a hill side in the Blewitt Springs region of McLaren Vale, each of our three cottages (Ponder, Unwind and Relish) offers relaxed, unpretentious luxury - an ideal escape from it all.


Each cottage is fully self-contained, with stunning views over vineyards towards the Mount Lofty Ranges and offers an eclectic mix of old and new, with all the modern amenities and luxuries - and best of it all, several cellar doors and restaurants in walking distance.

Arrive, unwind, ponder & relish the serenity

Vineyard views and being able to walk to cellar doors and restaurants - that was always something we looked for when exploring McLaren Vale before we moved here. It was surprisingly difficult for us to find a McLaren Vale accommodation with stunning views over vineyards & the hills and that was in walking distance to cellar doors.

Karawatha Cottages offers all this and much more

Wine, Food & Curated Experiences

Visiting some of the 80+ plus cellar doors is without doubt all the excuse needed for a McLaren Vale getaway; amazing food from one of our many restaurants is always a perfect match and should be part of every itinerary - but there is so much more to do in McLaren Vale: from taking a flight over the vineyards, riding a bike or walking along the vines to bespoke tasting and dining experiences and much more.

Let us help you plan your perfect McLaren Vale itinerary

Our Beaches & the Fleurieu Peninsula

McLaren Vale is renowned as one of Australia's premier food & wine destinations but did you know that less than 20min from your McLaren Vale accommodation you will find more than 30km of pristine coast line? McLaren Vale and the Fleurieu Coast is rightly considered as one of South Australia's best coastal destinations.
And to top this, within an easy day trip from Karawatha Cottages you can explore the rest of the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula with historic & quaint costal towns, islands and more beaches, stunning conservation and national parks and of course, a few lesser known wine regions.
Plenty to discover and inspiration to stay a little longer
