Is This Adelaide's Most Gorgeous Boutique Getaway?

Getaway: Mill Estate Might Be Adelaide’s Most Gorgeous Boutique Getaway?

This Goolwa luxury accommodation has us starry eyed. Now we just need an excuse to visit.


South Australia is filled with some pretty amazing accommodation options. We are absolutely spoilt for choice, and our discovery of the former Goolwa Mill cottage, which is now known as Mill Estate, has us starry eyed. It’s somewhere we’d send our interstate friends for a special getaway, spend a weekend with our girlfriends in between winery visits, or prepare for a wedding with your bridal party. Really, we don’t need an excuse, we just need to find time to getaway and soak up this gorgeous destination, which is right up the road from Finniss River Vineyard and many other fantastic destinations South of Adelaide.

There are two accommodation options to choose from. Mill Cottage and The Abode.

Mill Cottage

Mill Cottage is a c1853 three bedroom cottage, located just off the Main Street in the heart of Goolwa. Since its original construction, it has been a destination of prestige. Being the cottage next to the pre-existing Mill of Goolwa, it is full of character and has a rich history, with the cottage originally being home to prominent professionals and local businesses.

Mill Cottage has recently been restored to all of its former glory and it’s stolen our hearts. Featuring quality furnishings and finishes you can revel in, the simplicity of its original architecture shines through without missing out on modern luxuries. Mill Cottage balances the warmth and comfort of home with the premium indulgence of luxury living.

This divine dwelling boasts three luxurious bedrooms, a stunning kitchen and an inviting dining and living area, featuring a wood fire for those wintery nights.

Filled with unique decor and furniture, every detail has been hand selected with luxury, style and comfort in mind.

Whether it’s a romantic seaside escape for two, time away with your family, weekend away with friends or a mid-week getaway, Mill Estate’s aim is to provide you with a unique and beautiful base to explore the Fleurieu Peninsula.  

The Abode

The newly built Abode shares the same prime location as Mill Cottage, however, offers a little more privacy, being discretely tucked behind. For those seeking a seaside getaway, The Abode offers warmth, style, and comfort to all who visit.

As you enter you’ll be greeted by light-filled spaces, chic furnishings and the ultimate blend of old and new pieces. Inspired by European interiors, fresh white walls and natural wood furniture, The Abode is the ultimate place to escape.

This home boasts a large open plan living/dining area, featuring a modern kitchen, perfectly crafted for a lazy breakfast or a Fleurieu inspired feast.   

After a day of exploring the gorgeous coastal town it is likely a little R&R is in order. Take the opportunity to immerse yourself in the deep spa bath for 2 and unwind from the day. You’ll marvel at the king size bed dressed with quality linen, guaranteed to promote a restful nights slumber.

Whether you are in need of a weekend getaway or a weeklong stay, The Abode ensures a place to relax, recharge and enjoy the finer things in life.
