Unaccustomed as we are to staying in mansions, we felt very welcomed and at home. Jennifer made it clear she was there to make our stay as pleasant as possible and we enjoyed the experience. The location was great for us too, as we could walk to Womad, to North Adelaide, or along the river. Thanks
We had a fantastic stay at 'Baroona' with Jennifer and her dogs. Our flights were quite badly timed, but Jennifer was there to greet us and send us off at ungodly hours with a cheery smile. Nothing was too difficult for our host and she has a wealth of knowledge on the house and the area to help us with any questions we had.
We would definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone wanting to stay in this area.
Jennifer showed us the room and our facilities when we arrived and then shared a cup of tea with us at her new backyard setting.
The St. Peters suburb of Adelaide is a lovely old established part of town where people obviously take pride in looking after their homes. A leisurely 4 km walk along the banks of what becomes the Torrens river to the Centre of town.
