About this listing
Spoil yourself! 2 immaculate, spacious bedrooms + bathroom all to yourself! Not just a room! Warmth, charm, and serenity with a touch of luxury. Perfect location for the Festival or Fringe or just a place to get the most from your stay in Adelaide
Renovated character cottage in a quiet one-way street in the best residential area of the city but within walking distance to all the attractions.
Upstairs there is a large, bright queen bedroom with a huge walk-in wardrobe and a small balcony. The second bedroom is a double room with a large built-in wardrobe. There is a sparkling clean 2-way bathroom between the bedrooms. The 2 bedrooms are only ever rented to either singles, doubles or families within one group, so the bathroom is never shared with strangers.
Downstairs there is a warm and inviting lounge, kitchen and dining area with a relaxing outdoor courtyard garden.
Breakfast is provided, i.e.choice of cereals, fresh fruit, juice, yoghurt, fresh bread (with numerous toppings), biscuits. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate (with marshmallow, of course) are available at all times. Your provisions are there for you to prepare for yourself at any time that suits you.
Welcome bottle of wine on arrival.
Large laundry with washing machine, dryer and iron available.
Facilities are exceptionally clean and of a high standard.
I can offer a special rate for longer periods.
Free Wi-Fi, 2 TVs, piano (actually a pianola), outdoor courtyard garden for relaxed breakfast, late night drinks or BBQs with friends.
The kitchen, laundry and main lounge are shared areas, but guests are welcome to treat my home as their own.
I provide bikes for easy access to around Adelaide, festivals, Womad, Fringe and Clipsal. There is off-street parking for 2 cars if needed.
Fluffy towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash provided.
If you have forgotten anything, such as umbrellas or coats, I am happy to loan these to you!
Interaction with Guests
Minimal interaction, as my bedroom, bathroom and a small lounge are at the front of the house. I work long hours so guests often have the house to themselves. But I'm there if and when you need me.
A quiet one-way street in the best residential area in Adelaide CBD, within easy walking distance to a huge variety of restaurants, theatres, pubs and markets - you are spoiled for choice!
The beautiful Adelaide parklands (both natural and cultivated) are close by for early morning walks as well as a tranquil Japanese garden 400m away.
A library, a pharmacy, a supermarket and many more conveniences are literally just around the corner.
The location is ideal for business trips, short holidays or for longer stays for travellers wishing to get to know Adelaide and environs.
My location is so close to all the major attractions that it is possible to walk to most things. I have bikes available for loan (best way to get around Adelaide) or there are free loan bikes available on Hutt Street. As well, there is free public transport 100 metes away which gives you a chance to get a snapshot of Adelaide and North Adelaide. I can accommodate 2 off-street car parks, if needed.
When driving to my place, crossroads are Halifax and Hutt Street, Adelaide (not Goodwood).
Guests are encouraged to relax and enjoy all the house. The usual "outside for smoking" applies and no pets. Generally I do not accept families with small children due to the stairs and set-up of the house. However, exceptions can be negotiated.
