Illustrious ‘Bungalows’ and boutique ‘Shindig’ venue, nestled in nature with breathtaking views across Adelaide’s pristine coastline.

Totoka Urban Farm

Totoka simply is like no other!  22 glorious acres situated on the urban fringe of southern Adelaide Hills, TOTOKA is a perfect blend of semi-rural tranquility and city lifestyle with a million dollar view that will take your breath away!  

 

Only 14kms from Adelaide’s CBD festival mecca and immersed in the Adelaides Hills world-class food and wine region, Totoka opens a plethora of opulent experiences to indulge in.  Conveniently located to world renowned locations such as Hahndorf, McLaren Vale Wine Region, Fleurieu Peninsula, City Festivals, Glenelg and our pristine coastline.  Wish to enjoy the amazing Barossa Wine region, then a private helicopter will whisk you away for the day (weather permitting) right from the lawns of TOTOKA!  Proudly growing an abundant of chemical-free produce, complimented by predominantly South Australian grown and certified organic and chemical-free produce, a flavorsome and quirky set menu is included in every retreat stay, a unique element! 

 

A boutique farm running multiple businesses from their doorstep, only using ORGANIC practices (which means oodles of weeding by hand) producing fruits, garden vegetables, herbs and flowers!  Roasting certified organic and fairtrade coffee for their WHOLESALE business ‘EXTRACT BLACK COFFEE ROASTING CO.’ Totoka perculates dedication for SA small business.  Friendly sheep (Sipi, Fuzzy, Daisy, Maisy and Dodge) keep the grass down for Summer fires and the odd lamb for cuddles! Quirky chickens (yes they have personalities) are hatched and bred at TOTOKA and of course provide the delicious farm fresh breakfast staple!  Totoka DOES NOT open to general public so being an exclusive private property, owners Adrianne and David pride themselves on their illustrious landholdings that are only offered to those wishing to indulge in LUXURY!

 

Oozing attention to detail and a clear passion for South Aussie flora and fauna, the bungalow stay is a rare chance to experience a spectacular ‘working’ property.  A distinguished contemporary luxury blended with urban country, nestled in nature, Totoka invites you to personalise your story.

 

Beyond the sweeping driveway, the once stall barns have been magestically transformed into private bungalows for maximum 2 people to enjoy.  Although only 100m from the main road the bungalows are immediately bound by nature to create a feeling of serenity. ‘Aroha’ the sleeping bungalow and ‘Ataahua/Ngaio’ the amenties bungalow are separated by a romantic copper light lit path and stairs, ensuring the ‘urban country’ feel is maintained.

 

Across the grounds, ‘The Homestead’, permanent residence for owners, is private to ensure the 2 visitors have bungalows solely to themselves. ‘CASTAWAY’, a fire pit/seated area, is shared with the homestead, a MUST visit to enhale the magical view of Adelaide’s endless coastline that meets the sky.  The ‘Pirlta Trail’ is a beautiful, short scenic walk by day where one can see the possum release boxes from SA Wildlife Rescue, however by night transforms into a santuary of nocturnal wildlife that can be booked for an night walk experience.

 

Every thought has gone into the development of Totoka including names, a beautiful fusion of Indigenous and European origin; passion for Kaurna country with 5 generations of farming on Kaurna country, owners Maori and European heritage and a love of Pacific Islands where they married on Castaway Island 2005, in a boutique wedding.

 

Totoka is for those desiring a well-earned break to focus on oneself, body, mind and soul. With date nights few and far between, it’s a great opportunity to take the time to reconnect.  You can do as little or as much as you like.  With a large window above the bed, where a TV would have been, there is no choice but to relax, immerse in wildlife and soak up the sunshine not screen time! 

 

Smelling the sunshine or dancing in the rain, nature is true medicine with no shortage of fresh air at Totoka. Even when it rains for days and fogged in for weeks, the magic that beholds Totoka is indescribable.  You too will fall in love with Totoka, so much you will be looking forward to your return stay at our stellar, one-of-a-kind urban farm!

Surrounding in nature and with such spectacular views, it feels like a world away from suburbia.  The bath and ensuite was indeed luxury with quality bath towels and the floor heating. Totoka has truly paid attention to detail and we look forward to returning for a longer stay!
