The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose Brighton

This house sits in location, location, location!! I bought it, not really grasping this until living in the house. Everything is close and a car is not really necessary - wander to the movies, restaurants, pubs, beach, shops, drs, dentist, chemists, supermarket, hairdressers, shops etc,

I've always loved Brighton with its quirky and arty vibe and it is fabulous living amidst it all. On top of all this, the house is soooo quiet and it is quite amazing to step out of the front gate to find everything there!

What makes this house unique

Our local Woolworths has closed for refurbishment from January to December 2018. We do apologise for this, but would like to point out that Woolworths offers both click and collect (preorder your needs from a nearby store for a specific pickup time) and home delivery. Close stores are Marion and Glenelg.

Follow the link:

Alternatively, Brighton Central is 850 m south along Brighton Road, an 11 minute walk. Hove Foodland is 850m north along Brighton Road, also an 11 minute walk.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Carmel & Paul,

We really enjoyed our stay at Sea J's. You really thought of everything. Everyone felt at home from the moment we arrived. Couldn't fault your place and would definitely live to stay here again when back in Brighton. So close to everything. Perfect holiday home.

Nice spacious house. Reliance on Electric heating ok but challenging during the cold spell.

It was good for us 5 adults to have 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review - it was unfortunate that during your visit to Adelaide, the weather was extremely cold. We provide heating in every bedroom and also the living area, with a large gas heater, which is usually more than adequate for Adelaide's mild conditions.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

We planned a week break where we could have the whole family together and Sea J's fitted the bill perfectly. Everything was clean, tidy and well presented. The hosts were very helpful and obliging. We would definitely recommend Sea J's to anyone interested in staying there. As listed all the facilities are close at hand ( Beach, train, buses, shops, hotels etc )

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sea J's from 12th December until 26th December 2017. Upon our arrival we were left various local treats including a lovely bottle of wine. We were all very impressed with the property and would stay again if we found ourselves in the area. The beach is about a ten minute walk and the train to Adelaide is a five minute walk. There are lots of local shops, cafes etc all within easy walking distances (Woolworths is about a 90 second walk). The facilities at the property are all excellent - barbeque, washing machine, fridge, TV (I could go on!). Upon arrival I spoke to Paul and he was very helpful and stated they were available should we require anything. The property is a home from home and we loved staying in the house. Paul and Carmel many thanks for allowing us to stay in your lovely home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for leaving Sea J’s in great condition - very much appreciated. It is unfortunate that your one of your other experiences was not as you expected, but we are delighted with your email that said ‘we are all in agreement that your place would be very difficult to match as it is at such a high standard.’ We look forward to having you stay at Sea J’s when next in Australia.

Great place to stay

Our second visit to Sea J's confirmed it as a great place to stay with easy access to Adelaide, local amenities and beach. The property has charm and with its gated and private off street parking gives a quiet area for relaxing. Very much on our return list,
