Excellent location and only a 30min walk to Womad festival. Jennifer was a lovely warm host. The breakfasts were yum and she kindly offered for us to make sandwiches to pack for lunches too. Definitely a quirky place to stay that might not suit everyone but I really enjoyed it. Comfy bed and great hot shower. There are 4 dogs living on the property so if you don't like dogs it might not be for you. Didn't bother me though and the dogs are very friendly. Thanks Jennifer. We had a great time.

It is possible the weirdest and dirtiest air bnb I've ever stayed in. I would actually like a refund. The house stunk, it was dirty, there was a dog poo outside the bedroom door...? Seriously should not be listed on air bnb. Please for other peoples sake, take the room/house off air bnb so other people don't have to go through what we did. It was a terrible experience and for $135 I would have honestly rather have slept in the car

Jennifer was a great host, very welcoming and hospitable. She provided lots of breakfast foods, and it was pleasure to meet her and chat with her. The house was a lovely old-style house with character, high ceilings, and very spacious. The neighbourhood is lovely and the streets are tree lined, quiet with beautiful homes, but very easy walking distance to the botanical gardens.

My 86 yo mother and I were in Adelaide for a family funeral and staying here for those three days was both peaceful and nurturing for us at this time. Jennifer is a friendly and considerate host. We hired a car and the address is central enough to make driving between the airport, cathedral, and suburbs very easy. The street has plenty of parking and the area is quiet and leafy in summer. Shower is strong and hot water plentiful - a bonus for weary travelers. Both my mother and I would recommend this room to other travelers.

Comfortable accommodation, centrally located, easy walk to the Adelaide Oval, with a good choice of pubs for a beer and a meal on the way. Our host was helpful and friendly, as were her canine assistants.
