Adelaide Art Deco Cottage is a character 3 bedroom cottage (sleeps 5 or 6 if using portacot) and located in the inner city suburb of Glandore. It is approximately 5kms from Adelaide City or Glenelg beach and has excellent public transport links including the Adelaide to Glenelg Tram, many bus options and the Mike Turtur Bikeway
It’s one of the best locations in Adelaide for getting around, whether you are here as a tourist or are here for practical reasons e.g. access to the Flinders Medical Centre/University, the SA Aquatic Centre Oaklands Park, Ashford Hospital, Royal Adelaide Hospital or other Adelaide city based Universities.
While located in a quiet suburban street, its location near main arterial roads of Anzac Highway, Cross Roads and South Road make it an excellent choice as it is central to the city of Adelaide and nearby attractions and also direct route access to those tourist locations that are further afield, including our beautiful wine regions of McLaren Vale/ Barossa Valley/Claire Valley or a day trip to Victor Harbor, Goolwa, Pt Elliott, Kangaroo Island Ferry or Adelaide Hills (including Mt Lofty, Cleland National Park, Hahndorf, Stirling). These are all destinations that can be easily accessed via the nearby arterial roads without the hassle of complicated driving directions.
The home is located within a few minutes’ walk to the Glandore Community Centre where there is a playground and also some free play equipment that can be booked from the centre (normal office hours). There are many local conveniences nearby including a local 7 day supermarket, bottle shop, take away food, local post office and coffee shops. The recently opened Empty Bottle Café/Restaurant on Beckman Street (5 minutes’ walk) is an ideal place to have breakfast lunch or dinner and has a real vibe to it. There are many larger shopping centre within a few minutes’ drive - the closest being the Kurralta Centro (15minutes walk) from the home which includes a number of specialty shops and larger supermarket, bakery, coffee shops, optometrist and variety store to name a few. There are plentiful options of pubs and restaurants on Marion Road, Anzac Highway and Goodwood Road/King William Road and Hyde Park to name a few.
The home has a very peaceful feel to it and nature lovers will love the trees and large private and secure back garden where you can enjoy the outdoors and the outdoor setting for 6 people. Inside you can relax on the couch watching TV on the 50cm LCD TV, DVD player and enjoy free Internet ADSL-2 Wi-Fi and a music system with iPod dock.
The cottage is a fully equipped and functioning home. The home has a recently renovated kitchen with new appliances including a dishwasher where you can cook your own meals if you prefer and we also provide a Nespresso Coffee machine and a starter pack of coffee pods for those that like their coffee fix. It has polished floorboards throughout and high ceilings.
