We loved this cottage. It provided everything we needed and was incredibly convenient. The cottage was clean, well stocked with supplies and very cosy. There is nothing better than snuggling in front of the open fire on a cold night or having a big bacon and egg breakfast. Richard was great to deal with and he was always prompt to respond to emails and provide the information needed. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

A great stay at Narcoorte in this home away frome home. Spacious and the three bathrooms are great when you are a large group. If you want to stay in a quintessential Australian country stone house then MaDonnell House is for you. Clean and tidy with everthing you need to enjoy your stay. The provided breakfast of bacon, eggs and tomatoes was of generous proportions and the bottle of wine on arival a nice welcoming touch. Our visit to Naracoorte was for sad family reasons with the passing of my sister. The original trip had been planed as an early Christmas family get together, this had to be changed two or three times just before are planed arival, after the cancellation deadline, all of the changes were handled by owner promptly and with consideration for are bereavment that was greatly appreciated . We would love to return and stay at MacDonnell House under happier circumstances so that we can enjoy the house and the districts attractions.

We stayed at MacDonnell house for one night during our Coonawarra wine and cave tour. We had the whole cottage to ourselves and really enjoyed the privacy and the well appointed facilities. The spa bath and the double shower were great after a big day in the car visiting wineries and caves. The complimentary bottle of local red was a nice touch as was the bacon and egg in the fridge for us to cook up in the morning before we left. The cottage is lovely and has all the modern conveniences and what looks to be a new kitchen. Our room had a king size bed in it which was comfortable. It can obviously accommodate bigger parties as there were other bedrooms which were locked. The local Chinese restaurant is a five minute walk down the road and really good and the town centre is not far as well. We enjoyed our stay and would go there again. Thanks.

This will be one of the best equipped Cottages, we have been. And we have travelled a lot..... Everything is there. Everything. Plus Welcome Gifts. And the Fridge has everything fresh for Breakfast. Local eggs and ham as well. Very good and very responsive. Kind regards. Joachim

We had a lovely short holiday in Naracoorte and the Limestone View was the perfect base for travelling around the area. The cottage was clean and had great amenities. There was more than adequate breakfast supplies. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of hot water for the four of us. Thanks Richard!

This was a great holiday house. The king and queen beds were plush and welcoming, and the breakfast provisions were more than generous for four. The children ( ( 9 and 10) immediately claimed the recliners for themselves while the Boxing day test was in progress. The spa bath was also fabulous,although it took a while to fill it was worth the wait. The location was great with such a short walk to the swimming pool. We would stay here again if we return to Naracoorte.

We were agreeably surprised at the quality of this stop-over from Melbourne, en route to Kangaroo Island. We would have liked to stay longer. It would be Ideal for a base to visit Coonawarra wine district. The cottage was clean and cool with air-conditioner on (very much appreciated on the 42 C day when we arrived), and later we viewed a thunderstorm from the verandah overlooking the town of Naracoorte. It is quiet and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast supplies were generous. Communications on the booking and to ensure all was well were efficient and friendly.

My husband and I stayed at MacDonnell House recently. We have travelled all over the world and we would rate this in our top few places to have stayed. Extremely comfortable, scrupulously clean and every detail catered for. We will definitely return and would highly recommend this place to friends and family!

We, and three other couples, stayed in MacDonnell House for four nights and could find no fault with any aspect. The rooms are comfortable, the bathrooms were beautifully presented, the kitchen was well equipped for holiday cooking and the food provided for breakfasts was excellent – and plenty of it!! Thank you Judy and Richard for a very happy and successful stay.
