Ideally suited for couples or small families.
We are gradually upgrading the property, starting with the wet areas - kitchen, bathroom and laundry.
The living area has a flat screen television, DVD player, stereo, Wii and PS2 as well as a reverse cycle air conditioner. There is a choice of DVD's for you - kids titles included - or bring your own. We also have a small selection of books to read, as well as some board games if you can't get outside because of the weather.
The compact kitchen has been recently upgraded with plenty of cupboard and bench space. It has a fan forced oven with ceramic cooktop and rangehood in the original but upgraded hearth plus microwave and dishwasher. Instructions for all appliances are tucked in one of the drawers. You'll also find all the cooking utensils you may need as well as basic pantry supplies that are annoying to purchase for a weekend away, like cooking oil, foil, plastic wrap. Local supermarkets are open late for you to stock up on anything extra. The kitchen also has a small eating area.
The large master bedroom has a queen bed, the second bedroom has bunk beds plus trundle if needed for a night or two while the sunroom has a single day bed that converts to a large double. Each room has a small hanging rail so you can hang your clothes up, rather then leave them in a suitcase.
The recently upgraded bathroom has a shower in the bath, vanity and toilet. Bathmat is supplied or you can bring your own.
The upgraded laundry is accessible from outside and contains a separate shower. It is equipped with washing machine and dryer, plus clothesline outside.The vanity basin is large enough for laundry use. Laundry powder, clothes airer, iron and ironing board are all provided as well as all the cleaning products you'll need including mop & broom, vacuum cleaner and steam mop.
We provide the quilts, pillows and mattress protectors, you just need to bring your own bed linen and towels. Spare blankets etc can be found in the drawers under the bed.
We've tried to provide everything you would need for a pleasant weekend away, as well as a longer term stay. Feedback from our previous guests has been very positive.
We don't automatically charge a cleaning fee so you MUST leave the house as clean as you found it - including a final clean of dishes, kitchen, bathroom, toilets and sweeping & vacuum of floors. It is easy to do a quick clean, that's all we ask. All cleaning products are supplied.
SORRY, BUT THE HOUSE IS NOT AVAILABLE DURING SCHOOLIES WEEKEND.
This is NOT a house for large groups or parties - the neighbours will report excessive noise to the police.
There is NO SMOKING inside.
Well Behaved Pets are welcome both Inside and Outside
Both the front and back yards are fully fenced and secure. There is a medium sized dog door from the laundry to the back yard and a medium sized dog kennel in the back yard for outdoor dogs. There is beautiful green lawn for your pets to run around and enjoy.
Water and food bowls are provided if you prefer not to bring your own. All you need to bring for your pets is bedding and food.
We're happy for your pet to be inside the house as long as they do not cause any damage or mess. Please try to keep them off the furniture where possible. An additional cleaning fee may apply although we haven't had to charge one yet.
While your pet is very welcome, we do ask that you be considerate of our neighbours. If your dog is a barker, or will get distressed if left alone, then please reconsider bringing them with you. They may not bark at home, but they may if left alone in a new environment.
Please note that Riverview Road is No Standing between certain hours. Please check the street signs for confirmation and to avoid a fine. There is off street parking for 2 vehicles, or you can leave your vehicle safely parked on Pine Avenue instead.
The house is within walking distance of the city centre 10mins and is a comfortable stroll to one of the best beaches in Victor Harbor. Take a walk over to Granite Island, catch the Cockle Train to Goolwa, or ride your bike along the bike path to Goolwa instead. There are also plenty of walking trails just a block away.
