Walk out the gate, cross the road, and the beach is right there. This quiet section of beach offers safe swimming and walking away from the crowds. If fitness is your thing, a challenging running track up and down sand dunes with freely accessible exercise equipment is close by. You also have immediate access to an 8km walking/cycle path which stretches from North Haven to Semaphore South - a great way to explore this area. Head 1.3 km south along this path and enjoy a beer at the refurbished Largs Pier Hotel. Or sample the fantastic fish and chips from the beach kiosk across the road. Stroll through vintage shops, visit the organic shop, and sample tapas or relish breakfast at the retro Queenies Store.
Head south another 1.5 km and the vibrant seaside suburb of Semaphore with its cafes, shops and supermarkets awaits you.
Our local store/deli and chicken shop around the corner sell basic food items and a range of takeaway food options. There is also cafe which opens early and provides breakfast and coffee.
A 3 minute walk to the bus stop where the local bus will take you to Semaphore and historical Port Adelaide where there are nautical, train and plane museums, and more shopping malls and supermarkets. The nearest train station is a 10 minute walk away and this gets you to Adelaide city within 25 minutes.

This is a beautiful self contained studio close to the beach in Largs North. The bed is extremely comfortable. Everything you need is there to make a meal and enjoy an evening in or you can go close by to have a meal out. I went for a few runs along the beach which was awesome. The hosts provided detailed instructions which was very helpful. They answered all and any questions. Overall this was an awesome place to stay and I'd highly recommend it!
Margaret was a great host and the position of the unit was very convenient to the beach which was across the road, and shops and eateries nearby. The unit was private, very clean, neat and had lovely furnishings. Margaret left a very helpful folder as a guide to help holiday makers find their way around the local area and Adelaide. We really appreciated the breakfast provided and the kitchen was well equipped for self catering. Thanks to Margaret for a peaceful and relaxing stay.
We really enjoyed our stay here. The breakfast and cooking supplies and good books to read were a “nice touch”.
The unit is very clean, comfortable, well laid out and nicely decorated. The small kitchen is well-appointed.
Margaret was very easy to communicate with.
We were made to feel very welcome by both Margaret and Isi but also left to ourselves which was great. A lovely unit in a great place to stay.
Margaret and Isi were perfect hostesses! Their instructions and information about the district were invaluable. We walked to the kiosk and had fish and chips watching the sunset. The local cinema had a film on that I really wanted to see. The main street of Semaphore had every type of food available in quirky cafes.The apartment was spotless and had everything you could possibly need and more..even a first aid kit! Definitely value for money!!!
Excellent place to stay. The inside was nicely furnished and equipped with books and videos to entertain, but also it was stocked with everything you might need, toiletries, blow dryer, ironing board, milk, bread, cereal, cooking utensils, teas, oil and vinegar. I'm glad we chose this place over a hotel bc it felt nice and not stale like some hotels can be.
We absolutely loved staying at Margaret's apartment, they have included everything you need and more, and most importantly the apartment was very clean. We would highly recommend staying (website hidden) thank you for the beach chairs, they were a nice addition.
About the Host, Margaret
We live in the beautiful city of Adelaide and enjoy city living near the beach. I am from New Zealand originally, and Isi is from the UK. We are a professional couple and both work full time. We converted our old unused poolroom into a modern self-contained apartment in 2013. We adore our dog Toby and our indoor cat Whiskey. We love travelling and going to new places, meeting new people and trying new foods. We really enjoy a glass of red wine out on the deck with friends.
