By the Seaside - a great family getaway

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 4 nights


About the property

By the Seaside is a very comfortable family home situated just metres from the seafront of Edithburgh on the Yorke Peninsula. You can see the seafront from the front lawn!

The house is situated only a short walk from the hotels, café, deli and diner. The jetty - where some of the best fishing in Yorke Peninsula is on hand - is only a few minutes away. The swimming pool is even closer. The all-weather boat ramp is only a two minute drive away.

Tennis courts, the flora park and golf course are just around the corner.

The home has 3 Bedrooms consisting of 2 Double beds and 2 sets of bunks in the 3rd bedroom, sleeping a total of 8. The kids room is huge and has a flat screen TV and lounge. We provide quilts and pillows and tea towels - you need to bring pillow slips, sheets and towels.

For those of you that hate the idea of going home with a car full of dirty linen and spending the day washing we can also provide linen for $10 per head. This will include pillow slips, sheets, bath towels and bath mats.

Sorry, no pets are allowed in house.

For your comfort there is a reverse cycle air conditioner in the lounge ,and ceiling fans in all of the rooms. There are 2 flat screen TV’s as well.

The kitchen has an electric oven and stove top, microwave & full size fridge/freezer and dishwasher. There is also a Nespresso coffee machine (bring your own pods) and all the pots pans and crockery that you will ever need. Tea towels & dishwashing and laundry liquid are included in the rental price. We provide a starter pack of dishwasher tablets. There is also a laundry with washing machine and dryer

A gas BBQ & an outdoor lounge is provided and there are board games, cards and a dart board and bocce for your entertainment. There is also a library of books and magazines.

A fully refundable security deposit of $200 is payable and is refunded after the cleaners have inspected the property - in most cases payment is processed the day after you leave.

Yorke Peninsula -

If you’re looking for a family playground with sun, sea and sand, it’s hard to go past Yorke Peninsula.

Stunning beaches and friendly coastal towns beckon, while inland are historic mining villages and spectacular national parks.

Blessed by nature and embraced by sea, Yorke Peninsula is a world apart. Here are magnificent beaches and jagged shorelines, friendly locals and rich farmland.

If you love seafood, you can stroll the shallows raking for blue swimmer crabs, dive for crayfish and scallops, or drop a line for King George Whiting.

It also boasts some of Australia’s greatest surfing beaches and is strewn with shipwrecks for divers. Back on dry land you can explore mining towns and national parks.

Whatever you do, you’ll be made very welcome on Yorke Peninsula!

Fishing and Diving -

Plump tommy ruffs, gar, squid and blue swimmer crabs make up the bulk of the jetty catch, while boaties can expect anything from jumbo snapper to King George whiting and practically everything in between.

Throw in big, black-back salmon and the occasional mulloway from bottom-end beaches and it is easy to appreciate why this location appeals to such a large broad cross-section of recreational anglers

It’s safe to say that Edithburgh is one of Australia’s most appealing, accessible and affordable venues for an angling-based holiday. Whether you are a died-in-the-wool offshore fishing fanatic or simply like to drop a bait from the jetty, there are few locations nation-wide that can offer as much in such a compact package.

There is a modern, all-tide ramp and it has dual lanes, floating boarding pontoons and a spacious carpark.

Edithburgh Jetty is a diver's paradise, renowned for its spectacular diving and easy access for all levels of experience. Whether snorkelling or scuba diving, you will enjoy swimming through the jetties pylons to observe the wide variety of marine life.

On a scuba dive at Edithburgh you can expect to see marine life including big-bellied seahorses, Port Jackson sharks, leafy sea dragons, cuttlefish, a variety of fish and colourful corals such as pipefish, and different varieties of nudibranch.

Edithburgh Jetty is a great dive site, not only for day diving, but also for night dives. During the night you’ll see plenty of nocturnal animals like octopuses that are out hunting. A night dive here will offer a totally different sight than a dive during the day. You might see some Blue ring Octopus out hunting too (an underwater photographer favourite). Always make sure to watch them from a distance

Excellent family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 stayed here for a couple of weeks Aug/Sept and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house has everything we needed and was very neat and clean, fully equiped kitchen and the beds were very comfy. Everything is within walking distance - the tidal pool (though too cold in winter!), jetty - great fishing, grassed picnic area and even cafe and pub. It's in such a peaceful street and the locals were very friendly. We will definitely stay here again! Highly recommend for families and groups looking for affordable seaside getaways!
