Given the location, we didn't particularly expect a high standard of accommodation but we were very pleasantly surprised. The cottage was immaculately clean, in itself an achievement considering the dust and dirt all around. The standard of facilities is high and the bathroom was recently renovated and is very modern and functional.

It is important to keep in mind though, that their water supply relies on tank water and rainfall, so wise water usage isn't only requested, it is common courtesy.

The cottage was private and quiet, even when the adjacent cottage was in use. The location makes a great jumping-off point to explore the Flinders Ranges.

Room Tip: This is a remote location so if you have any questions, contact the owners for more details before you travel.

Kangaroos and lizards at the front door, wonderful views. Good access to Wilpena Pound and the Southern Flinders ranges. Queen bed and two singles in second room. Kitchen has all utensils required for a self catering stay. Bathroom and shower were adequate but we're also being upgraded the following week. BBQ and covered area. Shingle driveway of either of the two cottages makes an excellent platform for viewing the milky way. Missing the quiet already.

Great place to base travel around Flinders Ranges. Cottage has every thing you need as well cake on arrival. Comfortable, well appointed and quiet. Stayed two nights to travel around the area including Wilpena Pound. Hosts live on the property in separate house and only popped in to say hello.

There are two self-contained cottages at Windana, both under the same roof but built to ensure maximum privacy, with under-cover BBQ areas and the laundry separating the living areas. The cottages are on farmland and have a nice view of the distant Flinders Ranges, even on a hazy day the sunset was very pretty. Set well off the road, and a fair distance from the owners' house, this is a very peaceful place to stay.
The cottage we stayed in had two bedrooms, a full kitchen which was very well equipped (stove, microwave, full size fridge, slow cooker and more); living area with table and chairs plus sofa and additional chairs. Small bathroom. Everything quite spotless. There is also a shared laundry, and clothesline behind the cottages. There are BBQ and tables for outdoor dining. Undercover parking provided.
The cottages are about 2km from the shops in Hawker, and a flat walk that would be pleasant in nice weather but maybe not so good when hot (or when dusty).
Deb was very welcoming, and when there was an issue with our water supply one night she and Steve came immediately to assist.
Value is good, considering the quality of the accommodation and facilities provided.

Room Tip: Both cottages have same facilities, views.

Had a wonderful four day stay at Windana. So nice and quiet. Roomy cottage with comfy QB and good shower and amenities. Great views of the Flinders Ranges. Hosts were welcoming and helpful. Well recommended.

Room Tip: Quiet location just outside Hawker.
