Interaction with Guests
Feel free to interact with us at anytime, but at the same time we will respect your privacy and personal space.
Close to town, restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, shops, in fact all you need is a 2 minute walk down our quiet leafy street.
Please treat our home as you would your own. That means take care of the place and contents and clean up after yourself. You can smoke but please do so outside. Also, please be nice to our cat Milly. Otherwise, just relax, enjoy yourself and ask if you don't understand something or have any concerns – we’re always happy to help. We want you to have great time while you are here in Adelaide.
Had a lovely stay with Daniel and Melanie at their beautiful home. There was a calm relaxing ambience about the home which was very relaxing. Melanie generously provided a self service continental breakfast and access to hot drinks whenever required. Also I was welcome to come and go anytime (due to a music festival I came back late a few nights). Very enjoyable and look forward to staying here again in the future
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Our hosts, Daniel and Melanie and their queenly cat, Millie, made us very welcome with a cup of tea and a welcoming chat, and careful orientation. They have thoughtfully made available the kind of information that guests need. Their house is cosy and comfortable, and they made us feel totally welcome. It is also conveniently located to central Adelaide being on quite a few bus routes and even within walking distance of the CBD. We were there on a Sunday night, and returning late, so probably not a test of suburb of Norwood but it looked like a boppy place for eating and just hanging out in lovely bars and not too far from the bright lights of North Adelaide too. This house was a great setting off point for what Adelaide has to offer in March, which is a series of festivals. We spent time at the Arts and Writers' Festivals but it would also be good for WOMAD. Cannot recommend highly enough.
We truly enjoyed our stay at Daniel and Melanie's place. We stayed there from 26 Feb to 1 Mar 2015. The place is strategically located in a beautiful, leafy suburb. It's only 5 minutes walk to the Parade which has plenty of shops, restaurants, cafe, bars and bus stops to go to the city. The house is full of characters and well-maintained. Clean, airy room plus charming backyard for breakfast / lunch made our stay really pleasant. Not to mention, our hosts, Daniel, Melanie and Milly (the cat) are warm, friendly and attentive to our needs. We feel very grateful to have found this place and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.
I had a great time at Mel & Dan's place. They were very helpful and respectful. The room is quiet and very comfortable. It was really hot in Adelaide for the 2 days I was there, but with the aircon on, the room felt like heaven. I slept like a baby the 2 nights I stayed there.
I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to go and spend some time in Adelaide.
I had a wonderful stay with Melanie, Daniel, and Milly! The location was perfect–easy bus or walking access to the CBD, and The Parade also offered a host of restaurants and shops. As soon as I arrived Melanie welcomed me in and gave me recommendations to help me make the most out of my short time in Adelaide. I felt very comfortable in their home and would definitely stay again if my travels bring me back to Adelaide (which hopefully they will!).
Melanie and Daniel were very friendly hosts. We were only staying for one night, but this was a nice stay. It's very kind that breakfast is included. Furthermore, the position of the accommodation is unbeatable: it's just a short walk through Rymill Park into the city. Restaurants and bars are even closer. Our tip: Best for visiting Schuetzenfest! ;)
We enjoy travelling and know how nice it is to relax in a clean and warm home after a day of adventures. We are friendly locals who love food and culture so can tell you the very best of what to do in Australia's Festival City, where to discover the best of Adelaide’s food and wine and how to explore the great outdoors of South Australia. So come and stay with us in our cosy home with your own private room with a comfortable double bed and a clean bathroom. We are only 2 minutes walk from the bustling Parade (full of restaurants, cafes, fashion and lifestyle shops, supermarkets, chemists, live music venues and parks) and only 10 minutes by bus, or 20 minute easy walk through the gum tree filled Parklands into the heart of Adelaide city.
