Absolute Adelaide Beach Front! The Sandpiper Beachhouse

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,614 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 21 nights


About the property

Uninterrupted ocean and sunset view with NO ROAD between the you and the beach!

It is rare to find a house (in Adelaide or anywhere in the world, really) where your front garden cascades directly to the sandy dunes and gently lapping sea. We love this location and want to give you, our guest, the opportunity to experience the magic of living this close to the ocean.

This is a lovely, relaxed beach house that pays full tribute to the sea and views. Open the front door and the salty sea air and warm sun instantly takes you away from what ever is happening in the rest of your daily life. It is truly exhilarating. Don't come here if you are looking for something super modern or gleamingly glamorous because we believe that when you come to the beach you should feel comfortable and in the zone for all things related to the surf and sun. We want you to be fully present to the elements and enjoy the space. We expect you to feel you can traipse inside with sandy feet and leave your beach towels where they lay, eat your fish and chips inside or out and kick back and enjoy being somewhere incredibly special.

Our home is fully self contained and takes in the best sea (and sunset) views from the comfort of the couch in the living room to sharing a meal under the shade of the expansive outdoor dining area. The view from the master bedroom is extraordinary, too. There is sleeping room for eight (up to 6 adults and 2 children) with a king sized bed, single bunk, single bed and a double bunk (double below, single above) in three separate bedrooms. Public transport is close by or there is off road car parking. Fully ducted air-conditioning/heating will make your stay here in the summer or winter months very comfortable. Two showers (one bath) and two toilets, laundry and dishwasher help to make your temporary beach house a place to relax and enjoy. We welcome you to experience a truly special piece of Adelaide's local beach oasis.

About Gen Casucci

My dream has been to live by the sea and that is why I own this beautiful house. When my husband. my two children and I aren't staying here we want to share it with anyone else who has a desire to experience what it's like wake up to the sound of the waves.

I work in Adelaide as a consultant and have created flexibility in my working day so that I'm available to manage this house through Airbnb. We have beach toys and books, linen and kitchen utensils and many games to keep children and adults amused. As the saying goes..."Mi casa e' tu casa" (my house is your house)

Come and enjoy the best part of Adelaide at our favourite local beach.

Oh, and, of course, I love to travel, so if I'm not in Adelaide I'm somewhere else emersing in a different culture, enjoying it with my husband and children. Maybe I will be in your part of the world!

Hope to meet you soon.

What makes this house unique

Beachfront, beachfront, beachfront!! Wake up to the sound of the sea, play, walk or lay about on the sand during the day and in the evening sit back and watch the sun set each and every night directly in front of our interruptions, no road in the way and beautiful peace and quiet. It is heaven on earth.

Gen is a such an accommodating and lovely host!! Everything was set up for me and my family to enjoy our Adelaide trip (we wished we have stayed longer!)

The whole property is immaculate and relaxing. The beachfront is just amazing and we will definitely come back to stay.

Beachside Bliss!

  • 5 of 5

We loved every moment of our time spent at this idyllic home, metres from the waves of the ocean.

The house had everything one would desire to feel relaxed and on holiday! Our three children loved the array of toys and wonderful DVD collection. We loved the kitchen that had every single utensil and piece of crockery you would need to cook beautiful meals or entertain friends.

Gen is the most gracious and thoughtful hostess we will ever meet! Stunning home - wonderful host. We will be back!

Everything we could want!

  • 5 of 5

Sandpiper gave our mixture of adults and children everything we could possibly have wanted for a beachside holiday in winter. Enough room for eating, sleeping, relaxing and watching the beautiful ocean. The children were overwhelmed with the variety of games and activities available. Thank you so much!

Other Activities:


The Sandpiper beach house is ideally positioned along the beautiful Adelaide coastline, just 25 minutes drive from the Adelaide city centre. The home sits on top of a sand dune, with uninterrupted views of the ocean and the beach of West Lakes Shore. EVERY single night there is a sunset right in front of our house. As there is no road between us and the beach, there is also no noise other than the sound of the ocean. There is some grass to play, picnic or lie on and the option to turn left to walk 4 kilometers to Grange Beach and 3 kilometers to the right and walk to Semaphore beach. Both with a village life and spectacular jetty's.

There are restaurants and cafe's within a 5-10 minute drive (SO many in Semaphore, Henley Beach and Grange) or, for a shopping experience, there is the Westfields complex 2km's away (with all the known stores, boutiques, and grocery shops and with food halls and cinema). A bus links you directly to the city.
