It seems that the Adelaide Hills have become notorious for their hidden getaways and intimate retreats, but we are not complaining. Only 25 minutes from the CBD, the Esto House is another destination to add to your “must try” list of SA’s accommodation gems.
Nestled among the Deanery vineyard, you’ll find yourself at the foot of South Australia’s iconic Mount Lofty, including the Heysen trail—Australia’s longest dedicated walking trail.
This 2-bedroom holiday home retains its Hills charm while embracing a modern interior with walls in a subtle shade of off-white and floorboards that gleam classically.
Esto’s alfresco decking area will convince you to test out one of Esto’s very own wine offerings, as you lounge on their modern outdoor furniture among the sweeping greenery of the Piccadilly Valley.
If you’re visiting in the cooler months, you’ll be warmed by the rustic feel of the wood-burning fireplace in the living room that is furnished with timeless artistry. With a gourmet, fully-equipped kitchen, we wouldn’t blame you if you were tempted to skip an evening out and take advantage of the luxury linens and premium bathrobes from the comfort of the Esto House.
Mount Lofty Botanic Gardens, Cleland Conservation Park and some of the best walking and cycling tracks in South Australia are within walking distance from your accomodation, encouraging you to make the most of your closeness with nature.
Despite being isolated in the heart of the Hills, there is plenty of parking around and locally sourced breakfast offerings that you can enjoy from the comfort of your bed.
If you’re after a family getaway, Esto House doesn’t accomodate for children and infants so it might not be the holiday home you’re looking for… Or, I guess that means the kids have to stay home.

Esto House is located at 33 Sprigg Rd, Crafers SA 5152
