Description

Peaceful and charming, The Sanctuary at Deep Creek is a spacious rammed-earth home; perfect for a romantic escape or tranquil beach holiday for friends and family including the family pet.

Located on four acres – a combination of rambling gardens, native bush and open pasture – the house is situated within the stunning rugged scenery of the southern Fleurieu Peninsula, right on the edge of Deep Creek Conservation Park.

When you stay in this home away from home, you can relax and take it easy, watching the birds and kangaroos visiting the garden. Or you can venture out: fishing, surfing or swimming at Blowhole Beach, which is a steep 3km away by 4WD or foot. The Heysen Trail is just one of the many walking tracks in the adjacent conservation park.

This unique open-plan 3-bedroom home comfortably sleeps 6, and includes a well-equipped kitchen, lounge and dining areas, and space to escape on the mezzanine floor. The thick earth walls and high roof help to maintain a comfortable temperature, but the building can also be cooled by the reverse cycle air-conditioning or you can curl up toasty-warm in front of the efficient wood-burning heater. Fresh bed linen and a generous number of bath towels are provided. Tea and coffee are supplied, along with a few basic pantry items.

Please note:Weekend rates are the same as weekday rates.

Locality

The Fleurieu Peninsula region of South Australia is home to a wide range of attractions from premier food and wines to remote and rugged coastline. Accessible picnic areas and safe beaches make this area ideal for the family holiday whilst the more adventurous can enjoy excellent bushwalking, snorkelling/diving and fishing.

20 minutes away from the award winning restaurant, Leonard's Mill, why not treat yourself?

The Sanctuary is located just minutes from Blowhole Creek Beach and the Heysen Trail as well as being adjacent to Deep Creek Conservation Park park fees apply. You are only 20 minutes from Cape Jervis and the Kangaroo Island ferry. A day trip to the island is a great treat. Victor Harbor is only a 45 minute drive across the picturesque Range Road. Enjoy a day whale watching and exploring this part of the Fleurieu Peninsular.

Property

One of the most ancient of construction methods, rammed earth or "pise" creates homes with wonderful ambience and The Sanctuary is no exception. The minute you step inside you will be struck by the relaxing nature of the house. There are plenty of comfortable places to sit and unwind along with a well-stocked movie and book library. Step outside into the rambling garden and spend time exploring its many hidden gems. Depending on the time of year you may come across a range of fruit and wild herbs.

Kangaroos and a wide range of birds are regular visitors to the grounds. The property has gorgeous rural and ocean views across to Kangaroo Island. The wrap-around verandahs provide ample places for a sheltered outdoor barbecue and evening meal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Sanctuary Time to relax with the family in a beautiful setting. Close to great walking trails and amazing views then back to the sanctuary and a cosy log fire book and wine. Will be visiting again, great place to recharge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great house,lovely garden and bush surroundings. The cosy home had everything we needed,plus plenty of heating(wood fire and radiators)and large windows to watch the birds and kangaroos in the interesting garden. The house is literally over the road from Deep Creek Conservation park and the magnificent vegetation and views in the park just invite you in to go bush walking! The owners have made the home very comfortable and left a variety of extras which might be needed including things to do and lots of books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A total gem in a very special area As a family who has stayed in holiday houses all over the world, The Sanctuary is up there at the top. Very rarely do we stay somewhere so well set up, so clean and so well maintained, and if you had a pooch it would be doggy delights all round! Bethany and Max went out of their way to make us feel welcome, with great friendliness and humour and we instantly felt comfortable in this fun house and the acres that surround it. The kids loved the playroom... all set up for them... and having a mezzanine level they could creep up to in the morning meant we ignored them and slept in! Loads of fun outdoor activities, we greatly appreciated the soccer ball, and old rusted mower and the dam and kangaroos were a hit. Birds to feed, bunnies to feed... total kids delight. Kitchen was super well stocked, and the supplies were fresh and thoughtful. Never have I seen see so many tea options. Other houses could take note from that! ! The area was a total surprise. .. we live so close by but have never explored Deep Creek and what a gem it is. We could have stayed a week and walked every day. The walk to blowhole beach will certainly make you sleep well! Not a single complaint, not a single issue, we were cosy, relaxed and had a wonderful weekend. Don't hesitate if you're looking for an escape with new adventures. This place blows away the competition in the area. Can't recommend it highly enough. Thanks!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Family Escape The Sanctuary went above and beyond our expectations. We loved exploring the surrounding Deep Creek Conservation Park and when we were back at the house, the kids continued their explorations around the property. Our only disappointment is that we didn't stay long enough!
