Your Home Away From Home - Says It All!

  • 5 of 5

Sensational place to stay! I grew up about a kilometre away over the hill - so it was like coming home!

You almost don't require a vehicle. Bus stop on main road two minute walk.

Shopping centre with anything you might need three minutes walk (across road from bus stop!).

All the facilities at this property are top notch. Would thoroughly recommend this property and would definitely stay here again!

This property exceeds Excellent !!

  • 5 of 5

This property is so comfortable, homely and ideally located that it has to be experienced to be appreciated. It has absolutely everything a traveller needs! We have stayed here on three occasions and will continue to fight for it amongst our own family. Must also mention that the host of this property has on all occasions been most accommodating, hospitable and friendly. Nothing is ever to must to ask, thank you very much for allowing us to stay Sarah :)

We loved our 16 nights in this truly authentic South Australian Cottage. Clean, close to shops and bus stops,comfortable beds. Amazing basket on arrival. I have stayed in many hotels but this beautiful cottage surpasses all other experiences. Lovely garden, very quiet. After a day out, like coming home. We can't wait to come back and stay again. Sarah is amazing and this property is a credit to her. Definitely rate 5*
