Love gosia's place: good location where it is quiet and yet very close to eateries and supermarket, plenty of street parking. Gosia is very friendly, my aunt and I enjoyed our stay a lot.

Such a warm hospitality from Gosia and Ray! We are so well looked after as VIP guests with attention to details yet felt totally at home. Gosia and Ray are so generous to provide plentiful for breakfast with fresh fruit and nuts etc. They just simply opened their own cupboard and fridge. Here you go it's all yours. We also had wonderful conversations with Gosia and Ray just like with old friends. It's a very enjoyable stay at tastefully decorated bedrooms and beautiful garden at Elmo. Highly commended.

A European-born globe trotting diplomat is opening her elegant house to professional and business travellers. I am a humanist, love reading, enquiring and exploring. Have travelled the world and am convinced that Adelaide is one of the world's hidden treasures! Conversation and fresh food is always top quality at Elmo!
