This 1880s character cottage is the perfect place to stay at any time of year. Enjoy Glenelg's white sandy beaches in summer, then stroll home for a glass of wine on the deck in the enclosed rear courtyard. In winter, warm yourself with a spa and relax by the cosy open fire. It is just 15 minutes from Adelaide Airport, and 30 minutes bus ride to the city, with great cafes and shops in easy walking distance. There is a private parking space in the courtyard.
The cottage known to us as the "Matisse Suite" is decorated throughout with many of our favourite prints by Henri Matisse.

Classic black and white bathroom with generous spa.
High ceilings and polished wooden floorboards throughout.

Fully equipped with all you need for any length stay, make this your base and explore all that Adelaide and its lovely surroundings has to offer.
The cottage is situated on a main road with a bus stop right in front. Double glazed windows and noise reduction ceiling insulation have been installed especially to soften the street sound. Although muted, it is still just audible so if you want perfect peace and quiet then this may not be what you are looking for. But if you want character, charm and convenience then this is definitely the place for you.

As your hosts, we live a few kilometres away and we're happy to assist you with information if you need it.
Please email, text or phone us if you have any queries or questions.
We'll either greet you on arrival, or in the rare occurence that we can't, or if you arrive very late we'll arrange access with a key safe.
