Riverview on Pine - Cosy Cottage

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 5 nights


About the property

Our comfortable cottage located in the heart of Victor Harbor is a privately owned holiday home, ideally suited for couples or small families.

The living area has a flat screen television, DVD player, stereo, Wii and PS2 as well as a reverse cycle air conditioner. There is a choice of dvd's for you - kids titles included - or bring your own. We also have a small selection of books to read, as well as some board games if you can't get outside because of the weather.

The compact kitchen has plenty of cupboard and bench space, with electric stove, microwave and dishwasher. It is fully equipped with all the cooking utensils you may need as well as basic pantry supplies that are annoying to purchase for a weekend away, like cooking oil, foil, plastic wrap. Local supermarkets are open until 10pm for you to stock up on anything extra. The kitchen also has a small eating area.

The large master bedroom has a queen bed, the second bedroom has bunk beds plus trundle if needed for a night or two while the sunroom has a single day bed that converts to a large double. Each room has a small hanging rail so you can hang your clothes up, rather then leave them in a suitcase.

The bathroom has a shower in the bath, vanity and toilet. Bathmat is supplied or you can bring your own.

The laundry is equipped with new washing machine and dryer, plus clothesline outside. Laundry powder, clothes airer, iron and ironing board are all there if needed as well as all the cleaning products you need including mop & broom.

We provide the quilts, pillows and mattress protectors, you just need to bring your own bed linen and towels.

We are not a Motel and prefer stays of two (2) or more nights. We've tried to provide everything you would need for a pleasant weekend away, as well as a longer term stay. Feedback from our previous guests has been very positive.

Cleaning Agreement: We don't automatically charge a cleaning fee so you MUST leave the house as clean as you found it - including a final clean of dishes, kitchen, bathroom, toilets and sweeping & vacuum of floors. It is easy to do a quick clean, that's all we ask. All cleaning products are supplied.


This is NOT a house for large groups or parties - the neighbours will report excessive noise to the police.

There is NO SMOKING inside.

Well Behaved Pets are Welcome both Inside and Outside

While your pet is very welcome, we do ask that you be considerate of our neighbours. If your dog is a barker, or will get distressed if left alone, then please reconsider bringing them with you. They may not bark at home, but they may if left alone in a new environment.

Both the front and back yards are fully fenced. There is a medium sized dog door from the laundry to the back yard and both a large and a medium sized dog kennel in the back yard for outdoor dogs. (Please note, the front yard is fully secure for medium/large dogs but small dogs may be able to escape under the gates.) There is beautiful green lawn for your pets to run around and enjoy.

Water and food bowls are provided if you prefer not to bring your own. All you need to bring for your pets is bedding and food.

We're happy for your pet to be inside the house as long as they do not cause any damage or mess. Please try to keep them off the furniture where possible. An additional cleaning fee may apply (although we haven't had to charge one yet!)

Please note that Riverview Road is No Standing between certain hours. Please check the street signs for confirmation and to avoid a fine.

There is off street parking for 2 vehicles, or you can leave your vehicle safely parked on Pine Avenue instead.

The house is within walking distance of the city centre (10mins) and is a comfortable stroll to one of the best beaches in Victor Harbor. Take a walk over to Granite Island - the Penguin tour is a must! Catch the Cockle Train to Goolwa, or ride your bike along the bike path to Goolwa instead. There are also plenty of walking trails just a block away. There really is plenty to see and do!

For your added security, this property is only managed in Australia and we never request payments be made to overseas bank accounts.

We have positive feedback and a great rating because we keep our rates affordable. We don't pay more to get priority or to improve our rating. We just want to provide the kind of accommodation and weekend away that WE would appreciate. We are flexible, so please let us know when you book if you have any particular requirements or requests and we will do our best to accommodate them.

Great place to stay with your dog

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely holiday in Victor Harbour staying at Riverview on Pine as our base. We appreciated being able to bring our small dog who we felt comfortable in letting explore the back garden as it is fully fenced in. The "beach house" is clean and comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen . There is also a washing machine and tumble dryer if needed. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to take their well-behaved pet with them on holiday.

Very comfortable house

  • 4 of 5

This was our second stay at Riverview on Pine and we enjoyed our stay as much as our first visit. Kay & Grant have provided everything a family would need for a happy holiday. Our little dog Bella remembered her first visit so she too was very happy. We would definitely stay there again.
