The area of Hallett Cove itself has geological significance as it is one of Australia's most outstanding geological and archaeological sites. The Hallett Cove Conservation Park is nearby, where more than 1,700 Aboriginal artefacts have been found. There is a self directed/signed walking trail which describes the park's cultural and geological heritage, including evidence of an Australian ice age some 280 million years ago. The outstanding glacial pavements along the northern cliff tops are recognised as the best record of Permian glaciation in Australia and have international significance. There is a fabulous walking trail which extends from nearby Marino to Port Stanvac with seats along the way and fantastic view of this beautiful area.
This is a large 2 bedroom home with 2 living areas, 3 TVS and private front and back garden. You have the whole home to yourself.
Guests have exclusive use of the home and front and back garden. There is also a roller door carport for a small to medium car.
Interaction with Guests
I am available if needed usually by text message or via email. I have a "day" job so it may take an hour to reply.
Look after the home. Be security conscious - make sure you lock doors at all times and ensure windows are closed when you are away from the home.
Please leave the home in a similar condition to what you found it. If you do not wish to leave the home in a similar condition please do not book. The cleaning fee we charge is for linen laundering and pressing and wet area clean and minor fine tuning. If you do leave the home in poor condition and we can not meet our obligation to next guests then we will charge an extra night accommodation from your bond to cover relocation of next guest and extra cleaning charges will apply at $30 per hour (our costs for the cleaner)
Any problems report them to the owner immediately.
Crockery and utensils to be left clean and put away. Cooktop, & oven to be cleaned if used. Same with microwave. Internal bin emptied. Fridge emptied and wiped out. Any litter dropped, please pick up and dispose. Dishwasher to be emptied.
Bins to be put out on the kerb on the regular collection day (Thursday night) and brought back in.
Long term stays have the option of a mid stay clean of wet areas (at extra cost), otherwise please clean the bathroom regularly to avoid build up of soap scum.
If you use the washing machine please make sure you shake out any sand from your clothes before placing in the washing machine as this causes damage.
Report any damage and be considerate of neighbours.
No smoking indoors, cigarette stubs to be disposed in the bin (after extinguished)
In the warmer weather if you have booked for longer than 7 nights I ask you to turn on the garden sprinkler a few times during the week.
No noise or parties please. Sounds like no fun :-( ....but the home is in a residential area with lovely neighbours and I don't want them unhappy.
Great property and we loved staying here. Kris had made all necessary arrangements prior to our arrival and everything was taken care of.
Would love to visit again.
Kris was a very helpful host. The property was very clean and well equipped for our family of five. All the little extras in the house were greatly appreciated. We had a wonderful time and would definitely stay again.
We had a great stay at Kris' place. It was in a great location, well maintained and very clean. The house had everything we needed and more. It was the perfect base for exploring Adelaide and the Mclaren Vale. Thanks Kris!

We have 3 listings, so please take a look. 2 of our homes (Hyde Park & Glandore) have easy access to our beautiful Adelaide City being within 10-15 mins away. All 3 homes have excellent public transport nearby.
The 3 bedroom Glandore home has the local tram which will take you direct into the city or Glenelg beach within 15 minutes. It also has buses nearby. It runs every 15 minutes. The Hyde Park home is a 10 minute bus drive with local buses only a 10 minute wait. The Hallett Cove home has a bus stop near your door which will take you to Brighton Beach, Flinders Medical Centre Marion Shopping Centre and the Aquatic Centre to name a few. It is approximately a 30 minute drive to the city and close to McLaren Vale wineries and the southern areas of Adelaide. All the homes have off street parking for 1-2 cars.
All our homes have private gardens (Glandore is particularly large) because we like the outdoors ourselves and they are all ground floor level because we have creeky knees :-) perhaps you do too!
