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 Excellent! An amazing place to stay if you want peace and quiet, with a warm, inviting and spacious home to relax in. Having a family of wild Kangaroo's at our door was an amazing experience too. We have no doubt we will stay at The Sanctuary again in the future. Highly recommended. Lee and Paula

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very cosy retreat, excellent stay! The Sanctuary is a little gem in the heart of Deep Creek Conservation Park. The house (previously an art gallery + studio) has a lot of character and is fully equipped with everything - even toys, books, DVDs and delicious complimentary cookies that the kids absolutely loved. Lovely garden that the wildlife obviously enjoys - we had breakfast while being surrounded by kangaroos and rosellas, absolutely priceless! Would recommend without hesitation :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what the Doc ordered! Just what we needed - remote without being too far from anything or anywhere, space to explore, fresh air, peace & quiet. The whole house was pretty much what we were after with plenty of space for both kids & adults to relax. The kiddies hideaway upstairs was perfect & well utilised by our girls as was the great CD library by the 'big kids'. Our daughter is Coeliac so to have some basic provisions (& delicious cookies!) provided that were GF was well above any expectation. Max & Bethany provide great service which really can make a difference - for us this made a great stay even better. Thanks so much & we are really looking forward to finding the time to visit again...soon!
