A historic coastal mansion with a rich and colourful history.
Once the property of one of South Australia’s most influential families, Bungala House has played host to many opulent gatherings over the years. Built in 1856, the property like many others of its era endured a period of disrepair but through the tireless work of its recent owners the property has been brought back to its former grandeur and is now offered for luxury accommodation, filming and events.
Set on a country estate of almost five acres Bungala House’s private parklands and rustic buildings offer several beautiful spaces for ceremonies and receptions you are spoilt for choice.
One of our personal favourites is the long Victorian Wisteria Arbour, especially during spring when then wisteria is in flower. Running almost 40 meters it provides a beautiful setting for a ceremony, a cocktail function spilling into the Elm Garden or a long table stretching the length of the space.
For a more traditional ceremony space, the Front Lawn framed by the circular driveway is a beautiful option. Easily accommodating up to 200 guests the lawn overlooks the grand old stone building and is shaded by large Moreton Bay fig trees.
Throughout the property there are various open spaces ideal for marquees, large tipis or outdoor receptions. The property also offers access to a traditionally built open woodshed with high rafters and whole trunk beams it is a beautiful space located at the back of the property and opens out into a shaded garden area featuring a beautiful old gum and backed by a traditional stone cottage.
Bungala House is located on the edge of the Yankalilla township and is a short 10 minute drive from the coastal townships of Normanville and Carrickalinga which offer a range of accommodation options and boast stunning white beaches.
Bungala House venue hire includes exclusive use of the property, including a large in-ground pool, and one nights accommodation in the beautifully appointed homestead for up to 8 guests accommodated in four private suites. The property also allows couples select their own caterer, suppliers and byo beverages with full flexibility.
Bungala House truly is the kind of property you have to see to understand and trust us, once you do you won’t want to leave ❤️
