This home offers a wonderful opportunity for one or two families, or extended families, to holiday together and the beach is only a short 600m walk away.

It comprises two independent, self contained levels, yet the possibility for everyone to get together.

6 guests can be comfortably looked after upstairs whilst downstairs spaciously caters for primarily 2 guests with a bed and trundle for another 2. Two families or extended families can comfortably holiday together or older children can make use of the lower level, whilst still not being too far away.

The upper level, with its' enclosed rear yard, caters for pets should they need to come too.

A modern kitchen upstairs with dishwasher and washing machine, microwave and oven, coffee machine, reverse cycle airconditioning, large TV's, DVD's stereo, computer desk, comfortable lounges and beds caters for the group, whilst downstairs the rooms are easily accessed with minimum steps and similar facilities to upstairs.

Two pet kennels and a pet bed accommodate any furry friends please bring your own pet bed linen

Whilst the home is primarily available as a whole, it can easily be rented as only upstairs or downstairs too.

A discreet getaway for two or a fun filled adventure with family and friends or Grandma and Grandpa.

The home is well situated being a short walk to Goolwa Surf Beach and a longer walk or short drive to the Murray river and the Goolwa shopping district and historic town. Its' elevated position overlooks the nearby golf course and towards the river with river and sea views.

Goolwa Beach is one of the few beaches that can be accessed by 4wd and cars can be driven along the beach to the mouth of the mighty Murray river - the third longest navigable river in the world behind the Nile and the Amazon.

Rolling waves, sand dunes, dune grasses and birdlife are a joy to see all year round and seals often frolic and bask by the Barrage near the township.

The main shopping precinct, close to the river is a short 3-4 minute drive away.

Goolwa is one of the prime river ports of early Australian history being a key transition point for river borne goods to the railway, Victor Harbor and beyond to Adelaide.

Apart from the many historic buildings including the small luxury hotel - The Australasian, the Corio and the Goolwa hotel are well frequented. Walking through the town is full of history and interesting buildings.

The weekend Goolwa Markets are a treat and the Cockle Train and Steam Ranger are a must see. River boats, paddle steamers and a bird hide that offers bird watching activities are all close by.

The area is well served by more modern convenience stores such as Foodland and Woolworths.

The Murray River flows out through the barrages, which are well worth a visit themselves, to see the engineering of the structure maintaining freshwater above and holding back the sea below.

The Coorong, a World Heritage wetland reserve is just beyond.

The Hindmarsh Island Bridge links the mainland to Hindmarsh Island where either Marina style living or humble fishing shacks exist in different areas.

The river Murray flows down from lake Alexandrina, the largest freshwater lake in Australia.

Sailing, boating, fishing, surfing are key activities in the area whilst there are wionderful wineries nearby at Currency Creek, McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek.

Goolwa Airport has sky diving, vintage airplanes and biplanes as well are a more modern fleet.

Alexandrina Cheese Factory is also just a short drive away as are the towns of Middleton, Port Elliot and a little further away - Victor Harbor.

Comfortable getaway for up to 10 persons plus pets

Surfside Syd's offers 2 separate accommodation units upstairs and downstairs comfortably for 10 people and their furry friends who may want to come too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUITED OUR FAMILY PERFECTLY I just wanted to say that our family had a great time and found Surfside Syds perfect for our needs. Your home was very well presented, clean and comfortable. Thank you for your hospitality and we have no hesitation in recommending your place to other family members and friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very relaxing We loved our stay here, close to the beach and felt quite secluded from neighbors. The property was very clean and well kept, kitchen well stocked and yard very secure for the dog. It was lovely to be able to have the grandparents visit for a couple of days downstairs, we loved the chess and puzzles. Thank you. (Jan 2018).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, spacious and family friendly A great, clean, pleasant and comfortable beach place with all the mod cons and plenty of space for the extended family to hang out all together or in smaller groups. There are two self contained flats, which offers lots of scope for holidaying with other people such as another family, or grandparents. There is even something for the family dog, with a fully secure rear yard, kennel, food and water bowls.
