Perfect Property - You Won't Be Disappointed!

  • 5 of 5

What a hidden gem! We have been fortunate enough to stay at many beautiful places but this one in our own backyard of Hahndorf South Australia is right up there with the best. From the minute we met Tony and he opened up his home with such a warm welcome we knew it would be something special. With beautiful log fires crackling away ready for you when you enter is such a treat and visually the home is stunning. It is a fully self-contained 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom (3 toilets) home and has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. Attention to detail in every room is magnificent. An amazing hamper and bottle of sparkling on arrival is such a nice touch to start your little getaway with. The kitchen has everything you need in the way of utensils if you wanted to stay in and cook and if not then you just venture outside and the main strip of Hahndorf is right there. The house is located down a laneway off the main strip so you still have full privacy and tranquillity, ample car parking space but no car needed because everything is at your fingertips.

The outdoor setting is lovely with a huge table that seats 12 under a stunning canopy of vines. We stayed in April and the colours of the Autumn leaves were breathtaking. The outdoor patio has a stunning view of the gardens of the café next door. So peaceful to sit and enjoy the surrounding on a beautiful morning.

What a wonderful getaway it was and we had the best time. We are definitely coming back to stay but this time longer. We will be in touch to confirm soon Tony! For anyone reading this review and are apprehensive…. trust me! you will never regret booking Thiele House Retreat. Absolutely brilliant.

Incredible house and property

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent two nights here to celebrate a friends bridal shower. The house was absolutely beautiful and beds very comfy! The hosts had left us a beautiful breakfast hamper and a bottle of sparkling wine, a perfect touch.

The house itself is located in a great spot and the grounds are lovely and green.

Highly recommend staying at this beautiful property.

Such a great place

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Thiele House. It couldn't be in a better location, just off the main street of Hahndorf. The house is warm, comfortable and well-appointed, and the fireplace was perfect on a chilly Saturday evening. The furnishings are high quality. The hosts were lovely and there were no issues. Highly recommended.

Wow! This house was just gorgeous.

  • 5 of 5

Thankyou Tony & Kathy for sharing your beautiful home with us. It truly did surpass our expectations. The beds were super comfy & the linens such good quality... several of us commented it was the best sleep we had had in ages! The location is just brilliant, not needing to get the car out if you just wanted to stay in the local village & the advantage of a wonderful wine tasting right next door.. an added bonus. Also, the hamper of goodies was delicious. Dealing with you from the start Tony, was so easy with great communication. We really look forward to a return visit in the future & will certainly be recommending your gorgeous property to all of our friends & family.
