Spindrift Goolwa - family friendly getaway

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 5 nights


About the property

This charming, stylishly furnished, 3 bedroom, open plan beach house is situated in a tranquil street in Goolwa South, just metres from a beautiful reserve and close to the yacht club.

This peaceful property has been recently renovated and has new furniture.

A 5 minute stroll from the house will take you to the riverfront and aquatic club, bar and cafe, great for fishing, sailing and kayaking. Follow the river 10 minutes north to sample an array of cafes, pubs, bakeries and breweries by the historic wharf, or stroll south for a round of golf.

Goolwa beach is only minutes away (1.5km) by bicycle or car. The beautiful, long beach is ideal for swimming, surfing, kite flying and taking relaxing walks. The bike trail continues along the coast to the resort of Victor Harbor. A supermarket is conveniently located 500m from the house.

Relax in the spacious, open-plan living area with comfy sofas, air conditioning, heating, 42 inch LCD TV, DVD, Vintage Xbox, ipod/CD/radio player, magazines, DVDs and collection of books.

Or head outdoors to a large, covered eating area, complete with 6 person, outdoor eating set and 4 burner gas BBQ.

The new kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare home cooked meals.

The well-maintained garden has lovely lawns, a shady veranda for those hot days, and is fully fenced at the back. The driveway can accommodate three cars and a couple of boat trailers.

Let the sounds of the sea send you to sleep in any of the two queen-sized beds and 2 single beds located in three bedrooms.

There are at least four playgrounds within walking distance of the house for children, and the reserve at the end of the street has plenty of open, grassy areas for ball games.

Goolwa is conveniently located 85km (1hr15) from Adelaide, between the Great Ocean Road and Kangaroo Island. It is a great base to explore the Fleurieu Peninsula, famous for its wineries and beaches; and the Coorong, a large, unspoilt stretch of saltwater lagoons and wetlands. It's a short 5 minute drive to Middleton, 10 minutes to Port Elliot and 20 minutes to Victor Harbor where you can take the horse-drawn train to Granite Island and see the famous fairy penguins.
