Located in the dreamy beach side town of Port Willunga, Ukiyo House offers a stunning and unique escape with dining perks that foodies will rave about.
I am always about the eat, drink and play features of a property when I book a getaway. Time is so precious, every holiday moment counts and I want to be sure that I have the luxurious option to take on as much or as little as I want when it comes to dining out or staying in and taking the nosh matters into my own hands.
The things vital to me are; are there great restaurants nearby, can I purchase local food and beautiful wine or will I have to bring it all with me? Is the kitchen going to inspire me, fill me with that sense of ‘you know me so well’, and what about the obligatory 5pm (somewhere) G and T‘s, can I perch myself somewhere that’s so obliging, considered and beyond comfortable, sip a local brew and breathe it all in…?
Built by a couple of impeccably tasteful locals, Ukiyo House delivers all this and so much more – 5-star, very cool, consciously curated luxury accommodation, only 300m from that incredibly stunning Pt Willy beach, a stone’s throw from some of SA’s best eateries – Star of Greece, Little Rickshaw, the new neighbourhood beauty Silver Sands Beach Club along with neighbouring restaurant – Pearl. Of course, there’s also no shortage of artisanal brewers, distillers and winemakers just up the road in McLaren Vale.
Still, if you’re anything like me and dream of having it all, you can take advantage of Ukiyo’s partnership with the multi-awarded Willunga Farmers Market, grab the in-house shopping buggy and load up with local Fleurieu provisions at discounted rates, pour yourself a complementary Never Never Gin or local wine and get to cooking up a storm. If you’ve forgotten to pick up your fresh wasabi or in-season herbs, don’t panic, there’s no need to get out of your sun deck casuals, or potentially your pj’s and jump in the car, just pop outside and help yourself to all that’s growing in the guest’s kitchen garden.
With provisions like a full-size kitchen, induction cooktop, Riedel glassware, Weber Q, Japanese kitchen knives, a library of cookbooks, Japanese ceramic crockery and every in-house locally-made artisan extra that you can think of, you’d be hard-pressed to find yourself wanting for anything.
46kms from the Adelaide CBD – Ukiyo House in Port Willunga is a sublime escape, a place to truly wind down and let the local delicacies, surrounding beauty and pristine ocean wash over you. A time and place for you to create indelible memories.
