About the property

The Adelaide Art Deco Garden Home is close to the city in between Adelaide City and Glenelg Beach. It’s only 5kms from Adelaide or Glenelg. First time visitors and festival goers will find that the tram which is only 5 minutes walk from the home is the best mode of direct transport. With the recent tram extensions it will now take you to Adelaide East End stopping near Ayers House which is only 3 minutes’ walk from the Garden of Unearthly Delights. The Tram will also take you direct to the Glenelg Beach Esplanade or direct to the Adelaide Showgrounds (3 stops) Adelaide Central Market, Rundle Mall, Botanic Gardens, North Terrace , Adelaide Railway Station and leading all the way to the Adelaide Entertainment Centre and passing the Adelaide Casino, The Festival Centre and Adelaide Cricket Grounds.

Families will love that there is a playground and BBQ facilities only 3 minute walk from the home at the Glandore Community Centre. For those who like to cycle then The Mike Turtur Bikeway is only a two minute bike ride away - this will take you to Glenelg Beach or Adelaide.

Close by is The Village Bakery on South Road – very popular on the weekend for breakfast and lunch and has even won awards for their Vanilla Slice. In that group of shops is an Indian Restaurant, Subway & Vietnamese food. The Empty Bottle Restaurant is within a few minutes’ walk away and has well priced children’s menu. 5-10 minute walk from the home on Cross Road is a 7 day supermarket, takeaway stores and bottle shop. 5 minute drive from the home is the Kurralta Central Shopping Centre which houses 24 specialty stores including Kmart, banking options, many coffee shops and a large Coles Supermarket for all your food shopping needs.

The home sleeps 5 people in 3 bedrooms and fully equipped with a modern kitchen (including dishwasher) coffee pod machine and separate laundry facilities. It has polished floorboards, heating/cooling in the lounge area and towards the rear of the home and overhead fans in all rooms.

The new deck is is the most recent addition and has proved to be very popular with adults and children alike. It’s a calming retreat where you can relax while sitting on the outdoor setting and listen to the twittering of birds while having a nice cool drink or watching the kids play in the good sized rear garden.

Being located near arterial roads also makes it an excellent location for those tourist attractions, that are further afield, including our beautiful wine regions of McLaren Vale/ Barossa Valley/Claire Valley or a day trip to Victor Harbor, Goolwa, Pt Elliott, Kangaroo Island Ferry or Adelaide Hills including Mt Lofty, Cleland National Park, Hahndorf, Stirling.

Beautiful Property, Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

A lovely character filled home in a great location. My family and I stayed here for 4 nights and the accommodation was perfect. The house is cosy and clean, tram line is only a few minutes walk away and it takes no time to get into the city. Kris was absolutelysuperb to deal with as well - couldn't fault this place and we would definitely re-book.

Owner's Response: Thank you also Emma to you and family for looking after the home and leaving it in good condition on departure. You'd be welcome back anytime. Just an update the nearby Tram has also now been extended so it takes you not only to those fantastic tourist spots like the Adelaide Oval, Rundle Mall, Central Market, Glenelg Beach, Entertainment Centre but also to the east end of Adelaide, along North Terrace stopping near the Botanic Gardens. It will be fantastic for festival attendees also as it stops right out front the Festival Plaza and all along North Terrace reaching the East End and within a few minutes’ walk to The Gardens of Unearthly Delights.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your stay and for leaving the home in good condition.. Welcome back any time. The home is definitely an Adelaide classic built in the art deco theme. I have made a few improvements over recent years like the new kitchen fitout, laundry fitout and recent deck with out door lounge and dining area which is like a whole extra room to be enjoyed by all the family, especially in this beautiful weather that Adelaide is well known for.

We had a wonderful stay in this lovely house. It had everything we needed and was in a nice central location. The house was very clean and comfortably furnished. It was a great place to come home to after a busy day out.
