Where you’ll be

Carrickalinga, South Australia, Australia

The neighbourhood mixes stunning rolling countryside, world class nature, an abundance of kangaroos and spectacular coastline. Two of the Fleurieu's best beaches are within 5 minutes drive - Carrickalinga and Myponga Beaches. McLaren Vale, one of SA's most celebrated wine regions is 25 minutes away. The regions premier championship golf course, Links Lady Bay, is a 10 minute drive. Deep Creek national park, overlooking Kangaroo island and featuring the start point of the Heysen Walking trail is 30 minutes away.

Dining options include Fork Tree Brewing which has great casual food and superb views, and only 3 minute drive from the accommodation, plus there is also Little Sister in Normanville, a great restaurant and pizzeria that’s only 8 minutes away.

Other casual dining options include Yankallila Pub and the resort at Links Lady Bay, right up to celebrated regional cuisine at Star of Greece Port Willunga and Leonards Mill, Second Valley. If you like coast, nature, food and wine it's all on your doorstep.

As Superhosts we like our guests to experience our "neighbourhood" and so we've set up Coast & Co., a tour agency that focuses on showcasing the Fleurieu Peninsula & McLaren Vale. Coast & Co. is a tour company for those who want to get off the tourist trail. It’s about moving away from the well-worn and heading off into the uncharted and not being frightened to mix it up with 4WD, E-Bike, helicopter or your own two feet! If you’re prepared to look at the Fleurieu Peninsula as more than just a great wine region, then Coast&Co is for you.

Coast & Co offers a selection of day tours that take in the best of the Fleurieu coast and everything that springs from it. World class nature, extraordinary wildlife, famous cellar doors and some of the best food and produce in the state. Personalised and intimate, Coast & Co takes no more than six guests per booking and goes truly behind the scenes of the best food, wine and nature experiences within South Australia. Just search Coast & Co Willunga to find our experiences.

In addition to our drive tours we've also just introduced electric mountain bikes to McLaren Vale in a partnership with Primo Estate. Self hire and visit a range of Cellar Doors and restaurants on the Shiraz Trail for only $95 person with your own e-bike and back pack full of local goodies, or take a guided tour for only $195 , that gives you 4 Cellar Doors and lunch at either Red Poles or Wirra Wirra. Accommodation guests receive a ten percent discount on the above pricing for direct bookings.

The Electric Bike Guided Tour takes in the following:

You'll go behind the scenes of the regions famous wineries and get insider access on this tour plus no one else does electric bike tours on McLaren Vale’s Shiraz trail. You'll experience a working winery tour at Samson Tall, not normally available to the general public, but we have got it opened up by the owner and winemaker, who is also a friend . This lets you learn about small batch winemaking. At Wirra Wirra you'll see historic ironstone cellars and taste the region’s most famous varietals. At Red Poles you'll visit an exclusive indigenous art exhibition in the gallery, plus get a delicious lunch with a glass of premium wine or a selection of craft beers to try. At Hugh Hamilton, prepare to get your eyes, ears, fingers, nose and taste buds into top gear when a dedicated staff member takes you on a sensory journey of their wines. At Primo Estate, you'll learn the Italian heritage of the region and try mediterranean inspired wines. The whole ethos is to go behind the scenes in 5 iconic venues and meet the company we keep.

I am a McLaren Vale local who has had a long career working in gin, whisky, wine and tourism. It’s taken me from London to Inverness to Sydney and now back to my beloved Fleurieu Peninsula, where I’ve set up Coast & Co. - a tourism business where we really mix it up - accommodation, Ebikes, drive touring and even your own two feet. I love hosting people either in our accomodation or on our tours, and the beauty of my business is that you get to meet the company I keep. The winemakers, growers, baristas, foodies and many more people who make my region so interesting!
