5 minute walk to Adelaide Oval - 'Light Cottage' in North Adelaide

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Great location and house is neat and tidy.

The correspondence from landlord was good and it had everything required for cooking, washing, etc. The lockable carport was a real bonus and security was fantastic.

The outdoor eating area was good with a clean BBQ and good sized table and chairs.

Note that it was too cramped for more than two adults if you need to have separate sleeping areas. And the bed in the lounge room was a bit misleading.

The description on site could highlight that to better explain.
