Whether looking for a romantic getaway or simply time out to unwind, Yelki will be sure to weave its magic. This historic heritage (1835) beach front cottage seamlessly blends old and new to offer wonderfully comfortable accommodation.

The cosy armchairs, wooden floors, rugs and fireplace will envelope you in their warmth, while you take in the view and ponder on thoughts of the day or lose yourself in a good book. Or, sit on the veranda or lawn under the pepper tree with a glass of wine as you enjoy the magnificent ocean vista of Wright Island and The Bluff.

You may cook in the charming well equipped kitchen and then enjoy the meal in the breakfast room overlooking the back garden with its lovely profusion of plants, flowers and birds.

With the sound and smell of the ocean and two comfortable bedrooms your sleep is sure to be deep and restful. The cottage is completed with a sparkling modern bathroom.

A few steps to the beach or pathway leading to The Bluff and on, using the Heysen Trail past Petrel Cove, Kings Beach and Waitpinga cliffs; or hire a bike and follow the pathway into the town centre or along the coast to Port Elliot; further still to Goolwa and the Murray Mouth. Flagging enthusiasm could mean putting yourselves and your bikes on the Cockle train for the return trip.

Yelki by the Sea is well located, as just a short amble along the beachfront will find you at The Beach House Cafe, to enjoy delicious gourmet pizza, curry, or fish and chips, or go to the ever popular Yilki Store, where they essentially manage to offer the rest.

Yelki by the Sea is not suitable for children.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect weekend getaway Yelki by the sea ticked all my boxes plus more. It's a beautiful historic cottage. Peaceful and secluded yet walking distance to amenities. The fully stocked open fire place made this the ultimate destination come winter or summer. Highly recommend for those wanting a romantic stopover whilst exploring the South Australian coast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent all round! Stayed on a freezing cold weekend, Sue kept the firewood re-stocked and made sure our weekend was relaxing. The house has been restored so well, retaining it's history, but still modern and very clean. Will definitely stay again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cottage right by the beach Yelki is a very comfortable cottage across from the beach. It was great to go for a walk along the bike path before breakfast and watch the sunrise. The cottage had everything we needed. It was cosy and is tucked away a little which was nice. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful stay! Three of us stayed for two nights in February 2014. Lovely stay! Comfortable, atmospheric, great location. Plenty to do. We walked along the bay and up to the glorious headland. Went for lovely drives. Lunched at the McLarenvale wineries. There are cafés and restaurants close by. We had the breakfast package which was super. Hosts were charming and friendly but unobtrusive. Definitely hope to return.
