Unique Accomodation in the Adelaide Hills
About Christine Niessen
I love creating a special place and an atmosphere that has my guests feeling welcomed. I like to add touches that are appreciated like art, lighting, textures and colour, incense, candles and diffusers. I hope that my guests come away having enjoyed a time that becomes a wonderful memory.
Why Christine Niessen chose Birdwood
This is an eclectic mix of things that make a home special. Places to sit outside and in the cool months enjoy a fire. A bathroom that invites you to unwind and take me time. Intimate surroundings with garden and water features to create the green soft pleasures of nature. The location is ideal. Between the Hills and the Barossa, you can go in any direction and find a place to taste, dine or recline.

A beautiful escape!
We had a lovely time in Bali Indra - Shanti Bungalow 2. It is a beautiful place, very clean and has obviously been prepared with care. I especially loved the little touches - candles, low chemical soaps & shampoos and a great range of herbal teas! It was also very private and secluded. And so peaceful : ) : ) : )
Thank you so much for your lovely review and appreciation of the bungalow. We hope you return again for some more peaceful time away
Dancing with the stars
Stepping into shanti was an instant parallel into a beautiful secluded oasis in another time and place.
Bungalow was presented beautifully.
We made some lovely gecko friends that made us feel welcome.
The possums had a little party - they moved there furniture around to make space for a dance floor (but that’s understandable at any gathering) next time we may go up and dance with them under the beautiful stars you can see from the yard at night.
Possums weren’t a problem they were curtious and sent us a warning letter about their pre festive activities.
Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful space, we didn’t want to leave.
Thank you for staying with us and it warms our heart to know that you found our furry and ghekko friends a delight when they visited! And that Bali Indra was a haven for you and hope you can stay again very soon. Namaste
Gorgeous little home, nicely decorated, comes with all the basic needs and more!
Very sweet, attention to detail, welcoming and very clean
We stayed the first chilly autumn night which is why we were greeted with a warm bedroom! Magic. It was my husband’s birthday so we found a birthday cake and card! Thank you so much. We couldn’t have wished for more.
Thank you so much for staying with us and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay.
Great place clean tidy and very cosy
Thank you Cathryn, it was a pleasure to host you and we appreciate your positive feedback. Kindest regards Christine and John
A wonderful place to chill!
We stayed at this lovely home for our son's wedding. It was spotlessly clean & beautifully furnished. It is central to towns in the Adelaide Hills and provides a peaceful haven for two. We will definitely stay again.
Thank you so much Vicki for your wonderful review. It was a pleasure to host you for this very special occassion. Please visit us again very soon. Namaste.
