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. EFT payments are available.

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 property. Wildlife and scerenity amazing Light, bright, warm and cozy with amazing views and wildlife. Arrived to blue wrens, monarch butterflies, rainbow lorikeets, sleepy lizards and an abundance of kangaroos all 2 meters away from the front door! The best part, mumma and bubba kangaroo sun baking and grazing on the front door step. Just fantastic! the house is full of rustic charm. Stays cool during the day and warm at night. We will be returning!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Sanctuary - Deep Creek Such a peaceful and private location. Made feel welcome by the hosts. The house and yards were wonderful. A good sized property for the dog to safely roam around with lovely gardens. The pantry was well stocked. A pleasure to stay there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back again This is not our fist visit. We just keep coming back for more and each time the experience is different. This time Bethany and Max were so flexible and accommodating for us to have a family weekend with people coming and going. The kitchen is so well equipped that there was no problem with food prep and we didn't even get to the barbecue.The weather was windy but didn't deter some from the trek to nearby Blowhole Beach with its spectacular scenery. A kangaroo with joey peeping out of the pouch came right up to the back door and stayed to graze. Pure magic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute Gem Everything we expected and more. We were welcomed with lights on, fire ready to light and home made biccy's . A Beautiful nature experience in the comfort of a home away from home. We experienced all weather from warm days to very cool nights so the wood pile was very much appreciated. Just our kind of holiday plenty of walking the property looking for kangaroos and bird life and we weren't disappointed. I would recommend The Sanctuary to everyone.
