Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great weekend at the Nautilus Port Elliot. Our weekend at Port Elliott in the Nautilus was excellent. The accommodation exceeded our expectations and our guests loved it! It was ideal having the Tradewinds next door as we could have a group of friends stay with us for our birthday weekend. The property is well maintained and has everything you need. The Tradewinds is well positioned and within walking distance to the beach or The Strand. Being located in Port Elliot provided us a central point to go to Victor Harbor or Goolwa. We had a wonderful night at the Wharf Barrel Shed in Goolwa! Thank you Wendy and Phillip!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pristine accommodation We have stayed in a few of the Encounter Holiday Properties and have been so impressed by the level of cleanliness and thoughtfulness sought after by the lovely owners. They are always friendly and always at the other end of the phone and nothing is too hard. Linen is always fresh, kitchens are always spotless and very well set up right down to dinner settings and champagne glasses! There is always a supply of necessities on hand to get you started (i.e. soaps, wash powder, detergent, dish washer tablets) so it is a very easy move in process. Nautilus is no exception and has very good heating - very cool nights in June! Beautifully furnished and so well maintained. We walked to the beach each day for morning coffee at Flying Fish Cafe and in the evenings walked to the Hotel Elliot on the Strand for dinner and drinks. Great location right in the middle of town. The kids loved having downstairs to themselves and using the billiard table. My choice for Port Elliot stays is definitely Nautilus or any of the other Encounter Holiday properties. We have already booked our next stay!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely well presented. Definately stay again We stayed for our daughters wedding, we hired both Tradewinds & Nautilus whilst friends hired Beachcomber all were great location to the beach, coffee shops & bakery. The properties were clean & spacious. Philip & Wendy were very helpful from our initial booking to the end of our stay. Well worth it. We will not hesitate to visit again & hire any of their properties. If organising a wedding /engagement etc & want to keep the guest in the same locations these houses are ideal. Words cannot explain how relaxed and enjoyable our long weekend was. Well done to the owners

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great place This property allowed my family to have a fantastic weekend and indulge in a bit of luxury for a few days. The property really suited a classy social get-together with wonderful facilities for catering and holding a special family gathering. There was plenty of room for a lunch for over 20 people and then some very comfy and luxurious accommodation for 8. It really helped make this family event very special. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean, comfortable, well appointed, spacious We loved staying at Nautilus in Port Elliot. It was a true holiday with all linen supplied and beds already made on arrival! Quite luxurious! It is very well appointed with all modern conveniences and tasteful decor. Separate areas for kids is also a plus. The location is simply unbeatable for a family holiday. We highly recommend it!
