The Gums McLaren Vale is a fully furnished & equipped 4BR holiday house on 11 acres with beautiful views over McLaren Vale, walking distance to the Shiraz Trail and wineries and a few minutes drive to the beach. Lovely walks along vineyard backroads are close by, but you may not want to leave the comfort of the open fire in the spacious living room or perhaps you'd like to cook up a feast in the kitchen overlooking a lawn often populated with kangaroos.

The space
A home among the gum trees, set on 11 acres with a stunning view at the top of Stump Hill, overlooking McLaren Vale, The Gums is a four-bedroom fully furnished and equipped holiday house, perfect for a weekend away or longer stays in one of South Australia's premier wine-growing regions.

The house has everything you need, including coffee machine, flat screen TVs, wifi internet, iPod dock, record player (and a stack of vinyl), library, modern kitchen with dishwasher and microwave, two living areas, two queen beds, one double and two singles (which can be converted to a king bed). There's an open fire and a combustion heater for the winter and a reverse cycle air conditioner. In winter you can enjoy a glass of wine by the outdoor fire pit, or watch the kangaroos from the verandah where there is a BBQ and plenty of outdoor seating.

Walking distance to wineries and the township of McLaren Vale, and close to the Shiraz Trail bike track which runs from McLaren Vale to Willunga and McLaren Vale to the beach, The Gums is in an ideal location for your visit to McLaren Vale to sample all the best the Fleurieu region has to offer.

We also offer longer term accommodation for visiting winemakers and business visitors to the region.

All linen is supplied as is a load of firewood for the combustion heater and open fire, and further firewood can be purchased at a small extra cost.

Where you’ll be

McLaren Vale, South Australia, Australia

McLaren Vale is one of Australia's premier wine-growing regions. It is located one hour's drive south of Adelaide, close to beautiful beaches and stunning rolling hills. The Vale, as it is known to locals, is famous for producing top quality premium red wines and there are about 80 cellar doors to visit in the area. McLaren Vale is the gateway to the Fleurieu Peninsula which offers spectacular coastal scenery, surf beaches, pristine national parks and beautiful rural landscapes. It is 10 minutes from historic Willunga and its Saturday Farmers Market, and a short drive to the sandy beaches of Port Willunga, Aldinga and Silver Sands. McLaren Vale has a reputation for gourmet food and visitors are spoilt for choice with its many fine restaurants. The Gums is walking distance to D'Arenberg's Cube and Lloyd Brothers Wines, (with a guests' only shortcut), and Shingleback cellar door and the McLaren Vale Visitor Centre are also a stone's throw away.
