We stayed there for a wedding we had in Nairne. We loved every minute of being there, from a warm welcome, to a lovely cheese board and bottle of wine on arrival. We had a lovely encounter with the property cat, who was very friendly and enjoyed a snooze with us in the afternoon. Next morning, Liz made a beautiful...

This combined b&b, cafe and art centre provides a diverse range of experiences. I brought my wife here for an overnight stay on her birthday and she then did an art day. The location is tugged away off the main road but only 10 minutes to the freeway into Adelaide. A great location to explore the wineries and small towns...

We had a very relaxing weekend and enjoyed our stay here with two wonderful people, our hosts Richard and Liz. They were always at hand when we needed something, as we are inclined not to bother people unnecessarily. They are very friendly, easy to communicate with, as if we have known them for a long time as good friends. They...

I have just returned from my third wonderful stay at Jonathan Art Centre. Liz and Richard always make me feel very welcome and at home, and I look forward to each visit knowing that I can take time out to paint whilst being treated to delicious food in beautiful, friendly surroundings. I have stayed in the studio, which is ideal...

The Jonathan Art Centre B and B is situated in a quiet and picturesque setting and is about a twenty minute drive from Hahndorf. We stayed in the twin room which was small and basic. There were no tea making facilities, refrigerator, hanging space or television within the room. The bathroom is off an adjacent corridor and the toilet is...

We easily found Jarramarrumba House. Set in 45 acres the views are beautiful. It is a restful yet inspiring place. Liz and Richard were superb hosts - nothing was too much trouble. Our room was very comfortable indeed. We were even provided with robes and slippers. Food was innovative - simply delicious. Art tuition was relaxed and easy to follow...

We stayed one night, but we were so relaxed it felt as though we had been there for a few days! The hosts are extremely welcoming and accomodating and we instantly felt relaxed, happy and as though we were going to be looked after well. We stayed in the seperate "studio" room mostly just for a little extra privacy and...

I had a wonderful stay. I did an art-weekend, painting and drawing. Liz is a good teacher. I really enjoyed drawing in such a nice environment. The house is situated in a beautiful landscape. The garden and fields are very beautiful and full of birds, butterflies and even an Aboriginal firetree. The food is great. Fresh, restaurant-quality, delicious! Liz and...
