The Parkway - Victor Harbor Beach getaway

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Located “Between the Rivers” in Victor Harbor. Beach is only 200m....and town centre is just a comfortable 10min stroll. This charming comfortable quiet cottage/house is ideally suited for a romantic weekend for couples or beach holiday for small families.

The lounge with its ornate ceilings and comfortable leather lounge suites, has a flat screen television, DVD player, a variety of DVD choices, as well as a reverse cycle air conditioner.

The compact country kitchen has plenty of cupboard and bench space, with electric stove, microwave, coffee maker and full-sized fridge/freezer. Also a lovely wood heater to add to that country feel and warmth on those colder nights. Fully equipped with all the cooking utensils and extra electrical appliances to make your stay comfortable.

The large master bedroom has a queen bed with large built in wardrobes, the second bedroom has 2x sets of bunk beds.

We provide the quilts, pillows and mattress protectors and sheets for all beds.

Towels for each person, also a hand towel, bathmat, face washers...and Kitchen tea towel are included and added to the total at time of booking.

**Upon request, a cot and high chair are available for hire to keep your little one comfortable.

There is also a laundry with washing machine, plus clothesline outside. Laundry powder, clothes airer, iron and ironing board are all there if needed.

We've tried to provide everything you would need for a pleasant weekend away, as well as a longer term stay. Feedback from our previous guests has been very positive.

This home is PET FRIENDLY:

The back yard is fully fenced. There is a medium sized dog kennel in the back yard for outdoor dogs. Water and food bowls are provided if you prefer not to bring your own. All you need to bring for your pets is bedding and food.

We're happy for your pet to be inside the house as long as they do not cause any damage or mess. Please try to keep them off the furniture where possible.

We expect the house and garden to be left in a similar state to how you found it. Cleaning products are supplied.

The cottage is situated with one of the best beaches in Victor harbor at the end of the street, an easy stroll and within walking distance of the city centre (15mins)

Take a walk over to Granite Island - the Penguin tour is a must! Catch the Cockle Train to Goolwa, or ride your bike along the bike path to Goolwa instead.

A perfect location to suit all interests.....

For beach lovers, a short stroll to the end of your street….then feel the sand between your toes as you walk along the beach or take a paddle in the best swimming beach or go for a leisurely swim.

The wetlands board walk is also nearby.

As you walk down the beach you will came to the CAUSEWAY. Enjoy a ride on the Horse drawn Tram across to GRANITE ISLAND –a penguin tour is a must…and look out for a whale or two…(depending on season)

If fishing is your past time, just bring your rod, tackle and bait, as the home is located close to freshwater and saltwater fishing grounds…..once back home, BBQ and enjoy “your catch of the day!”

For golfers, a 5 minute drive will put you onto the greens at The MCCRACKEN COUNTRY CLUB with its Bar and Restaurants ready to meet your needs. Also not far away is the Victor Harbor Golf Club.

If you like the great outdoors, then a hike across the cliff-top trail from Petrel Cove towards Cape Jervis, or scale the summit of the BLUFF …and up the top, just admire the spectacular views surrounding you.

There are plenty of pleasant walking trails close by.

Catch the COCKLE TRAIN to Goolwa, or take the bike track at the end of your street. A pleasant ride along the coast through historic Port Elliot onto Middleton known for its surf beaches and finishes at Goolwa, the mouth of the river Murray.

If you're after a romantic get-away, share this beautiful place with the one you love.

And if you're into wine, what could be better than knowing that some of SA's best wineries are located less than an hour's drive from this place?...and the Mt JAGGER CHEESE FACTORY, perfection on a plate.

Award winning Cafes, Restaurants and Bakeries in the town only an easy walk or 2 minute drive, depending on your preference.

KANGAROO ISLAND via the SEA LINK at Cape Jervis is great for visit if you have the time.

For the family…..GREENHILLS ADVENTURE PARK is an easy 10 minute drive away. Enjoy a day of fun filled activities for all ages.

Get up close and personal with Australia’s favourite animals at the URRIMBIRRA Wildlife Park also close by.

There is plenty to see and do for everyone…. whatever you desire!

Exactly what we were looking for!

Although our stay was only for one night due to an unexpected family friend situation, the owners bent over backwards to assist us in our needs. They were easily contactable, flexible & caring.

A very relaxing holiday. Great location, short stroll to the beach.

nice cottage, close to good walks

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay & catching up with friends. Owner is very friendly, helpful with any queries/issues, & very quick to resolve them. We were very appreciative of being able to have our dogs with us. The back yard is small, but grassed & fenced in, so is good for dogs. The front veranda has comfy outdoor chairs, & is pleasant to sit out in evenings. The lounge couches are really comfortable, but the bed was too hard for us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your good communication. We would be happy to welcome you and Ainslie back, as well as your 2 dogs Jasper and Talika. Looking into having another Queen size bed in the other room, so you may have a choice. See you again...
