Recent Guest Description
Karin and Wilson are exceptional and generous hosts. Their attention to detail is second to none, their communication is fast, clear and concise, Karin's introduction to the apartment provided its history as a working church, a fascinating backdrop to our daily lives while we stayed there. Information about the area and how to get around is on hand in the apartment, and Karin provides local shortcut tips that save a great deal of time. Wilson's DVD collection is as extensive as it is world class, and his listing with synopsis is just genius. We saw several memorable movies that we'd never have watched without his introduction. The apartment itself is spacious and grand and carefully decorated, just the ambiance to make your stay feel very special. The bedding is just scrumptious. My daughter described her bed like a marshmallow (that said, the mattresses are very supportive), and the linen is just to die for while the coffee produced by the De'Longhi expresso machine is just the thing to entice one back up into the day. With the delicious fresh local produce and wines readily available, we produced gourmet meals in the comfort of what seemed like our own home during our sojourn. All the little touches, like chocolates here and there and the decanter of scrumptious port make St. Marks Church a memorable stay. Congratulations Karin and Wilson. Your awards are clearly well earned and deserved.

This grand apartment comprises a spacious lounge/dining/ kitchenette from where you exit to a hallway leading to 2 comfortable bedrooms, (1 with a queen sized bed and other with a double antique brass bed), private bathroom with bath, shower and separate toilet.

Beyond the indulgence and the gentle repose this apartment is a very practical choice for those on holiday or travelling for business.

Your own private driveway provides off-road parking, directly outside your entrance with ample parking for 3-4 cars.

All modern conveniences including free wireless internet are provided.

Our reviews have always been exceptional with guests commenting on the decor, the tranquility, the convenience, location and the many additional touches provided for their comfort.

Babies are welcome and a porta cot is available.
We only take children over twelve years of age as things that adults love when staying in a romantic heritage home can be less suitable for children.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Devine Experience If you've ever wondered what it was like staying in a real church? Here's your chance. The photos are accurate and the location ideal. Winters in Adelaide can be chilly, but the bedrooms and living areas are heated. Parking is available on the street and within locked gates. Instructions for everything are extremely clear. Breakfast materials supplied were an unexpected bonus. We'll stay again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavenly haven! My partner and I spent a glorious week staying at St Mark's, and loved every moment. Our hosts were great in preparing for our stay, and providing all the information that we may need, and were available via phone or text, ensuring privacy and consideration. The apartment is beautifully appointed, and the furnishings are luxurious, without pretentiousness. We felt welcome and cared for. I can highly recommend this lovely place and its fabulous hosts, and will be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and large Apartment We had a wonderful time. The apartment is decorated very nicely, is clean and has lots of wonderful extras- eg, breakfast supplies, washing powder, yummy biscuits to name a few. Karin also kindly lent us a baby cot for our son. The church is in a great spot, in a gorgeous street and was a very comfortable stay.
