You can easily check availability by going to “Book Now” and click on the “Show Availability” icon. Available dates will appear in green.

How long does it take to get there?

It takes less than two hours to drive to Naiko from the Adelaide CBD. The last 6 kilometres are on unsealed roads with breathtaking views, so we recommend giving yourself ample time to enjoy the drive.

Where can I buy groceries?

Naiko is in a remote area about 35 minutes from the nearest towns of Normanville and Yankalilla.  Most guests pass through “Yank” and we recommend stopping at Drakes for groceries and Yankalilla Bakery for bread and treats.  There is a Romeo’s Foodland in Normanville.

About 15 minutes from Naiko is the Delamere Store which has a few basic groceries and general supplies.

Can I self cater?

Yes, you can and, in fact, most of our guests do self-cater. The well-equipped kitchen provides everything needed for self-catering and the pantry is well stocked with essential items.

Alternatively, you can order platters, pre-prepared meals or have a dinner party catered at the Retreat by our preferred caterers listed under Dining and Wineries.

Can I bring more than 6 people?

Naiko Retreat has been professionally designed and beautifully appointed to accommodate up to six guests. The retreat cannot accommodate more than the maximum number of guests.

Camping on the property is prohibited. Motorhomes and caravans are also prohibited.
