Location 

Less than an hour’s drive from the city of Adelaide, immersed in one of the world’s most prestigious wine regions lies CABN Bella. A unique off-grid nature escape located just 8 minutes’ drive from the heart of McLaren Vale. 

Located approximately 150 metres from CABN Mila, these CABNs could offer the perfect option to escape with friends or family (subject to availability).  

IMPORTANT INFORMATION 

If you are tall, have mobility issues, or don’t like confined spaces the loft sleeping area may not be for you, please consider this prior to booking CABN Bella.  

CABN Bella does not have air conditioning. There are screened windows and a ceiling fan to promote air flow.

Please be aware that you will be required to walk a flat 150m from your designated carpark to the CABN. A cart is supplied to assist in carrying your belongings. 

Generally, your CABN is a peaceful place, however, it is located on a working winery and therefore on occasion there may be machinery noise and vineyard staff on the property. This may be particularly relevant during vintage (February/March), whilst the grapes are being harvested. 

If you have any other queries about your stay, please check our FAQs or contact hello@cabn.life – we are happy to help!
