What our guests have to say…

We chose Salty Grape as a girl’s weekend get away. We wanted somewhere with a few bedrooms and close to McLaren Vale. The house was great, quiet location but a stone’s throw from the beach and cafes. Walking distance to the local shopping centre too. It was a bit more of a drive into McLaren Vale than we thought – but that wasn’t an issue for us. Beds were great (sheets and bedding were fresh and clean). Heating worked a treat, kitchen facilities good if a bit cramped upstairs for 7 of us! But there’s a bigger kitchen downstairs (just that we congregated upstairs). Breakfast provisions left were adequate. Owners responded to a little hiccup we had extremely quickly and professionally. We would definitely stay there again. Be great for two families.


Good Location to McLaren Vale for the wines, which was the purpose of the trip. The house provided plenty of comfort and space for our group of 8

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Salty Grape. It was a bonus to have the lawn and shady area for meals during the hot weather, plus we played petanque, and generally made good use of all facilities! The aircon coped with the 40 degree days, so everyone was happy.
