Your Hosts

Before you visit us at Willunga House, we’d like to introduce ourselves. We are Nick Scarvelis and Valerie Bainbridge.

We bought Willunga House in 2008 with the aim of sustaining its place as an integral part of the Willunga community, and something very special for all who stayed. We did it because we love this house and this area.

The living history, the wonderful variety of local food, the stunning beauty, and some of the best wines in the world are at our doorstep. How could we not share this with as many people as possible?

We believe there’s nothing like Friday night at Russell’s Pizza, Saturdays at Willunga Market, and lunch or dinner at Fino’s restaurant, Penny’s Hill, Star of Greece or D’Arry’s Verandah after visiting great wineries, while staying at Willunga House.

We are passionate about Willunga House and its place in the history of the region and all the little pieces that we’ve gathered from near and far to make your stay something unique, and, hopefully, something you’ll wish to experience again.

With that, we offer you our hospitality, and would be delighted to welcome you to Willunga House.


Nick and Valerie
