Semaphore Beach House

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Semaphore Beach House offers great family accommodation only 200m from Adelaide's best beach. The fully self contained 3 bedroom house is just seconds from the great shopping, cafes and restaurants of Semaphore Road and only a few minutes away from historic Port Adelaide.

Located near the intersection of the Esplanade and Semaphore Road, it's a great house in an even better location.

Eco Friendly Solar electricity system installed Feb 2010

*** No extra person surcharge - a flat fee applies for 1 - 6 persons staying.


Fully self contained and equipped with everything you need and more for a hassle free and relaxing stay. The home was originally built in the 1930's, and although it has been completely renovated inside, it still retains the original charm and character that abounds in Semaphore.

The house has 3 bedrooms, with a queen size bed in the master bedroom, the other two rooms have 1 double bed and 2 single bunks. All bedding linen and towels are supplied.

The kitchen is fully equipped, complete with a very impressive 900mm stainless steel stove, just waiting for a gourmet chef.

There is a separate lounge and dining area with flat screen TV's and blu-ray, laundry, courtyard with BBQ, and off street parking. The complete home away from home.

Reverse cycle ducted air-conditioning throughout the house.

Semaphore and Surrounds

The Semaphore foreshore area offers a range of recreational facilities including a waterslide, mini-golf, old style carousel, Ferris wheel (made famous in the Elvis Presley movie Roustabout), a skate park and a cycling and walking track that extends from Outer Harbor in the north to Normanville, some 80 odd kilometres away on the southern metropolitan coast.

The beach is wide and one of the safest swimming beaches in Adelaide, the sandhills are fringed by grassed areas popular for BBQing and picnicing.

The Semaphore shopping precinct has an old fashioned friendly feel, with cafes, restaurants, hotels, fashion, art, furniture and antique marts and lots more to explore. The Odeon Star cinema complex is an olde world style cinema, showing all the latest releases for a bargain price of $7 all day anyday.

The historic maritime area of Port Adelaide has a Railway Museum and a Maritime Museum, galleries, markets and loads of history filled streets to explore. The Dolphin cruises attract hundreds of hopeful sightseers, and rarely disappoint.

AAMI stadium is a short 5 mins by car, a train will take you into town in 20 mins, and Glenelg another 20 mins by car (or you could try walking the 18kms directly along the beach - just head south!).

The only thing that we would have liked was a heater as a couple of nights it was a little cold but other than that is was a great place to stay.

Character and comfort!

  • 5 of 5

Our group really enjoyed our two week stay! The house is welcoming and well set up - a real home away from home. It is a short walk to the beach, shops and cafes. Public transport to the city is convenient and it's an easy drive to the wineries and Hahndorf.

Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Semaphore Beach House for a week over summer and we had the best stay. The house was gorgeous - great size for us, very clean and has everything you could need. The ducted air con came in very handy on a couple of very hot Adelaide days and we loved how close it was to everything - a couple of minutes walk to the supermarket, 5 minutes walk to the beach, playground. It was perfect for us - we have 2 kids who loved it as well. Just lovely. We definitely want to come back and stay again. Thanks so much
