Cockatoo View - Second Valley

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Not your ‘typical’ beach house...

Set in a fishing and diving paradise, Cockatoo View is a special holiday home set in one of the most peaceful locations on the Fleurieu Coast.

Overlooking the stunning Second Valley Hillside the Beach is only an easy 300m walk away.

Comprising of 3 Bedrooms, Bathroom, Laundry, Kitchen and Open Lounge / Dining, there is also a large outdoor deck area, a gas BBQ for the summer and a cosy wood fire for the romantics at heart. We have our own fish-cleaning area (if you empty the ocean) and plenty of off-street parking for cars, vans and boats.

We work hard to set a high standard for your stay, believing it's the 'little' things that make a difference. So, on arrival you will notice a bit more than the 'average' beach house might be known for, including:

- all beds are made with towels set in place for each guest,

- bathroom, toilet and laundry spotlessly clean

- the kitchen is fully-equipped including a coffee machine (pods provided)

- a wide choice of books, games, DVDs/CDs are available to enjoy during your stay with us

- the fire is set - ready to light when needed

- the BBQ is clean and ready to use

- complimentary carafe of port to enjoy

As we say, "...just bring your food/drink and clothes/personal items you need for your stay, check-in and relax..."

After-all, that's what a holiday should be, right?

We really value our repeat guests and those who respect our house, offering discounted rates to our preferred guests and Seniors Card holders.

We're just far enough away from the caravan park to be peaceful, but just close enough to be convenient should you run out of something during your stay or don't feel like cooking one night.

So, swim, fish, or (for the adventurous) hike over the hills or along the wonderful walking tracks close by or take the short drive to Wirrina's all-weather boat ramp or to historical Leonard's Mill and Tavern; the possibilities are endless in this piece of South Australian paradise.


Stay 7 nights and only pay for 6 - Special available all year!


Tired of calculating how many people, what ages, which beds and how many nights??

We believe that booking a holiday should be easier than that...

...At Cockatoo View we have only one rate - for the 'run' of the whole of house - Peak or Off-Peak, it doesn't matter.

So, whether you're booking just for yourself or the full-house of 6, simply choose your dates and the number of guests and we'll do the rest.

Plus, you're always dealing directly with me (Simon) the owner, no agencies, no fuss!

Experience the Cockatoo View difference...

NB: For our Preferred Guests...

Remember to book your preferred dates early - Seasonal booking can be highly variable with date availability!

Simply remind us of your previous booking, following which we can verify you in our system and provide you with priority, reduced rates.

You're always welcome at Cockatoo View!

Excellent holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for the use of your lovely holiday home. The location is beautiful, quiet and relaxing with plenty of lovely sightseeing opportunities close by. The Second Valley beach is really worth exploring, especially if you are interested in geology.

You have given so much thought to everything in the house that it really does have all the conveniences of home, even down to providing the outside sink for fish filleting. We had fun feeding cockatoos, galahs, magpies and even a few little sparrows, saw plenty of kangaroos and eagles. A great place for international visitors.

Looking forward to a return visit one winter so that we can fire up the pot-belly stove!

2 lovely holidays

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Cockatoo view 2 years ago and came back this year - have thoroughly enjoyed 2 wonderful holidays in this sweet holiday house. The owners obviously think about every small detail, and want you to have a fabulous stay. Extremely clean, comfortable, with well stocked kitchen, beautiful deck and feeding the birds is such a treat. We forgot a couple of items when we left and the owners even posted them back to us - that is how thoughtful they are! Highly recommend a holiday here - you won't be disappointed.

Exceeded my expectations. Convenient location, stone throw away to the beach and convenient store, "extremly" clean, well equipped with cooking and laundry facilities. Highly recommended! Would rent it again in a heartbeat.
