Fabulous hostess. Karen couldn’t have been better. She was available to answer questions, offer tips and knowledge. The cottage was as cute as can be with custom touches to make it comfortable and warm with amenities including laundry. I would return in a heartbeat.

Linda, I'm sure you can see how much I enjoy sharing this special part of Adelaide with guests (and returning ex-pat.s!) ... I do hope you have the chance to return under more pleasant circumstances next time. Tickle those dogs for me. Travel safely, Karen.

Hi Dara - that was an amazing visit. Thank you for your gracious and enthusiastic response (in person and by post) about our cosy little nook. I'm so glad to have met you in person, and my mum was thrilled to send some of her Aussie fabric home with you. Nice to hear that you and Russell are home, safe and sound, but of course - come back for a month next time now you know what a hidden treasure Adelaide is ;) .... We loved being your hosts, and might just see you in California one day. The world gets amazingly smaller every day. Sincerely, Karen.

Karen's place was good, we had a great time, we loved the location, the dog friendly, the folding chairs, and the provisions. We loved putting the folding chairs on the front porch & observing & meeting the locals and their dogs.
