The Studios by Haus celebrates its 10th birthday!

In October 2012, The Haus Studio Apartments, now known as The Studios by Haus, welcomed the first guests to our luxurious self-contained studio apartments!

Our 14 spacious and contemporary studio apartments, were part of a 4 year development plan in collaboration with the SA Tourism Commission. The Haus Group and the Duffield family played a major part in planning and building accommodation in the Adelaide Hills, in an effort to boost overnight tourism in the region. The goal being to encourage visitors to spend longer in the Adelaide Hills, exploring the many nearby towns and sites the region has to offer.

The Studios by Haus was the final piece of The Haus Group accommodation and restaurant development, after the completion of The Manna by Haus and The Haus Restaurant a few years earlier, and the pre-existing Lodge by Haus the Duffield’s took over in the early 2000’s.

Over the last 10 years, we have witnessed the many changes to our beloved town, watching it grow into a renowned tourist destination for all, from South Australian day trippers to overseas holiday makers!

On 4th December 2012, The Studios by Haus held an official launch party, welcoming media and local business owners to view the new accommodation and also enjoy food from the Haus Restaurant.

Guests were treated to a tour of the apartments, and were surprised to find a guest of honour in one of the showers and another snuggled up in bed reading “Fifty Shades of Grey” and a copy of the Hills Magazine! An opening to remember!

Supporting local business in the Adelaide Hills and surrounding regions have been core values for The Haus Group and the Duffield family from the very beginning. As part of the celebration guests sipped on local beverages by Hills Cider, Bird in Hand Wines and Mike Press Wines. Guests also enjoyed live local music and a metal fine art exhibition amongst the gardens by A Small Art Factory.

The Studios by Haus have welcomed many, many guests since its opening in 2012. Couples, families, newlyweds, honeymooners, corporate guests, and in more recent times one of our apartments was designated pet-friendly, allowing guests to bring their furry friend to come stay as well.

Contemporary exterior and spacious interior design make The Studios by Haus comfortable and luxurious, complete with spa showers and king beds. Each apartment boasts kitchen facilities and a dining setting for four, making them great for sharing and longer stays.

The original design of The Studios by Haus has remained contemporary and timeless over the last ten years, with only minor changes made to the artwork and bed linen to give each apartment a refresh!

The Studios by Haus gardens provide the perfect amount of privacy for guests entering off the Main Street, creating a calming feeling as you walk towards your apartment to rest and relax after a busy day exploring the sites. The gardens were an integral part of the design and development, centred around the historic pear tree adjacent to the Haus Restaurant, which still stands today providing a stunning focal point and beautiful shade.

When the accommodation was opened in 2012 the garden was in its infancy, but now guests are welcomed by box-hedged paths, colourful rose bushes and sweet smelling lavender, all framed by stunning evergreen and deciduous trees, making it a beautiful space to experience all year around.

The Old Hahndorf Market cart is one of the most photographed locations on the Main Street of Hahndorf, and is another key focal point of the property’s garden, with our beautiful studio apartments nestled behind.

The Studios by Haus have had a remarkable ten years, with immense support from locals and visitors worldwide! We have been awarded many accolades, including winning Silver for Deluxe Accommodation in the 2019 South Australian Tourism Awards.

We are excited for what the next 10 years holds and we look forward to welcoming many more visitors to our beloved Adelaide Hills region!
