About Bree Hartas

Bree and Mike purchased a property in Milang in 2014 and converted it in to a holiday home for others to experience. They love the country and getting away with their family this house had it all!! We live in Adelaide but they're only a phone call away if you need them when you're holidaying with your friends and family. We love everything to do with the water! Jetskis, 4wding on Goolwa beach and fishing off the Milang jetty! Chat soon, Bree & Mike

Bree Hartas purchased this House in 2014

Why Bree Hartas chose Milang

We loved this property as it's overlooking the water and is super relaxing! Even after a hard week at work, we can drive for an hour just outside of Adelaide and smell the country air, see the stars and have a glass of wine on the deck ..... and relax!!!!

What makes this House unique

We love that the property is overlooking the lake, a 10 minute drive to the wonderful wineries of the Langhorne Creek Wine Region, close to the shops at Strathalbyn, the river at Wellington and the beach at Goolwa!

                                                                  Ellie P.Adelaide, South Australia, Australia

                                                                  We stayed here for the New Year's Eve weekend and I could not recommend this house more. It's a great house and such a great set up with a huge entertaining area and lots of space on the front deck and backyard. Bree and Mike were great as well and always got back to my messages & emails very quickly. Will definitely be staying again in the future :)

                                                                  Real wow factor

                                                                  SAM N.Reynella, South Australia, Australia

                                                                  Vintage Oar was exceptional. Real wow factor when you walk in and see the large living space. Big bedrooms that don't feel cramped even with a king bed AND a daybed (or cot for us). Everything is provided and the location is both secluded and an easy lakeside walk to the pub and town. Everyone loved it.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  MelAdelaide, South Australia, Australia

                                                                  We booked at the very last minute but Bree and her wonderful cleaner Rae were more than accommodating and kind. The house was well appointed and had everything you'd need. The bed was very comfortable and the view of the lake was really lovely to wake up to. The spa was also a real treat. We visited Langhorne Creek and had a great lunch at Bremerton Winery. And the locals at Milang were super friendly. Highly recommend this lovely holiday home.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Wonderful Family Holiday House

                                                                  Melissa M.

                                                                  Excellent family accommodation. We had three families stay in this house and the layout was perfect. Large living/dining/kitchen area with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. We loved the wood fire and outdoor spa.

                                                                  The house was perfect for children, fully fenced property. Children's plates, cups, cutlery in the kitchen. And lots to keep the kids entertained - Books, toys, dress ups, board games and movies.

                                                                  Highly recommend

Glad the toys, books, games and dress ups were a hit with the kids!! Love winter with the wood fire. Thanks for the awesome feedback. Cheers from Bree & Mike
