In winter this house has the most wonderful OPEN FIRE which fills the room with heat like no other and in summer the wonderful deck has a BBQ and outdoor setting, so you can enjoy the magnificent sunsets every night.

Escape the hustle and bustle of the city in a very quiet peaceful suburb which is surpassed by none.

This home is a one hour drive from Adelaide and you feel like you are in the country but are at one of the most beautiful unspoilt beaches in South Australia. This house has a fully fenced in yard for dogs, and the staircase has a gate with a lock to keep your small children safe.

Please note, ALL ADULTS MUST BE 28 YEARS OR MORE TO RENT THIS HOME, verification must be shown and all children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

This home has all modern facilities including split system R/C air conditioner upstairs (with 2 hour timer), dishwasher, separate freezer, microwave, 2 fridges, electric oven, 4 Burner Gas BBQ (,2 gas bottles are supplied but we have found that in the busy Christmas period these both tend to run out having back to back tenants. To compensate for this we have a jar on the fridge and each time you use the BBQ $2.50 is put in the jar. If a bottle does run out during your stay please use the money and swap the gas bottle at the service station, Mitre 10 or the supermarket), Ipod docking station/CD player, 2 HD televisions, 2 bedrooms both with Queen Beds both fitted with electric blankets and one with a baby cot, downstairs TV room with 3 bunk beds (6 single beds) and a pull out trundle bed.

For long weekends, it is a minimum 3 nights rental, however, you are entitled to a late check out on the Monday being 5pm instead of the normal 10am checkout.

There are shops both in Normanville and Yankalilla, which are the closest towns to Carrickalinga, only 4km drive or a lovely walk, with a paved path. There is a Mitre 10, Chemist, Foodland, Bakery, Pub and lots of take away food shops, plus more, to cover all your needs. There are a few local wineries, which are always a pleasure to visit and 3 and a half golf courses within 10 minutes drive. If you love fishing, I have caught, sand whiting, salmon, mullet, tommies and flathead from the beach and also a short drive away is Second Valley, which is a great spot for squidding.

“For your added security, this property "Property Name" is only managed in Australia and we never request payments be made to overseas bank accounts”

Large Fully Fenced Yard

The big back yard is fully fenced for your young children and dogs.

Why Julie Carter chose Carrickalinga

We used to rent ths property in Winter for my husbands birthday and school holidays and loved the beautiful open fire place and views of the wild and woolly sea from the living area. We then started renting it for December school holidays and loved it so much that when it came up for buying we could not resist. So close to the beach, very short walk and just my home away from home. We have tried to include everything you will need for your stay including herbs and spices, pots and pans, glasses and staples ie cling wrap, garbage bags, alfoil etc. In the busy periods these may run out and I apologise in advance as when we have back to back rentals it is very hard to get down and replace, so please do bring some just incase.

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I was beyond happy with this property, such a perfect spot for a mini getaway with my family. Small walk to the beach, lovely back yard, plenty of beds, great kitchen and just a warm loving feeling being in the house. I loved the safety gates for children and a cot was even provided! Julie was such a lovely person to deal with and was more than happy to answer any queries I had. Would 100% recommend and will definitely be back!

Lovely Property

Good Facilities

  • 4 of 5

Excellent fencing for larger dogs, bathrooms and kitchen clean but floors downstairs and in bedrooms needed attention. BBQ gas not included in rental so take your own gas or pay per BBQ. Good facilities with dish washer and clothes dryer, 2 xTV's and 2x bathrooms and toilets. Signs everywhere so you know exactly what is expected!

Owner's Response: Dear Dot. Thank you for your review. Unfortunately my regular cleaning lady lost a close relative and was not cleaning for a month, so I had to rely on a local cleaning service. I am sorry that the floors downstairs were not up to scratch as they normally are. In the busy summer months we have back to back rentals and although we have 2 big gas bottles on site, they do both tend to run out and by putting money in the jar each time, there is always enough to pay for swapping a gas bottle at Mitre 10 or the supermarket and tenants do not have to pay themselves for a new one. Regards Julie
