"Seagull's Nest" is the quintessential beach house in a wonderful location just 100 metres to the beautiful Chiton Rocks beach. Directly across the road and down the steps, takes you to the Chiton Rocks surf club which patrols the beach area and offers a bar for evening drinks in the Summer. The house is also on the Encounter Coast bike trail, with safe and spectacular rides in two directions to both Victor Harbour and Goolwa. Also nearby, is the picturesque and historic town of Port Elliot with two family friendly pubs, Australia's oldest railway with a steam train still operating, excellent cafes and shops and many great walking trails.
The house has panoramic hills views both from the lounge area and deck, and upstairs in the completely separate master bedroom. As well as a queen sized bed, and private sitting area with sofa, the upstairs room has windows on 3 sides with massive hills views and some sea views.
Downstairs on ground level, there are three bedrooms, one with Queen bed, another with single bunk bed ,and a third smaller room with a single bed. This layout would be ideal for an extended family with grandparents and kids downstairs and parents upstairs, or one or two families with children, or an adult group.
Bed Linen and Towels are included. How nice to be able to arrive to freshly made beds and rolled towels so all there is to do is unpack and head to the beach
The living area is large and open plan with a central upgraded kitchen and large dining table. The lounge opens to a deck with bar-b-q and outdoor table- a perfect place to have breakfast and take in the country views. All the bedrooms have good storage and new carpets and are light and bright.
The kitchen is modern with a crockery pantry, dishwasher, water filter and a breakfast bar area. The bathroom is small, but updated and has a separate toilet.
Outside there is a garden deck with sun loungers, fruit trees, and a quirky garden with several sunny spots to sit.
This fabulous beach house is an hour to Adelaide, and only a short trip to many wineries and several National Parks, with the choice of spectacular surf beaches for body boarding and surfing or the beautiful Horseshoe bay for more relaxing swimming.
