Beachcomber - a high quality holiday rental

  • 4 of 5

Have just enjoyed a fantastic two nights at Beachcomber at Port Elliott due mainly to the very high standard of the holiday house, its location, cleanliness and the ocean views, which were much better that we expected. There was not anything that we wanted for in the house and we were impressed with the quality of the furniture and appliances etc. It was a pleasant surprise to find a lounge that was very comfortable; this is something we have found lacking in many other holiday rentals. The complimentary later checkout meant we did not have to rush the morning we left. Will definitely be going back to one of Wendy and Phil's holiday houses.

Holidaying at Beachcomber Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

We frequently enjoy stays at Beachcomber and highly recommend booking holidays there with the friendly helpful owners . The location is ideally situated, directly above beautiful Horseshoe Bay. There is immediate access onto the beach and a variety of lovely walks to be enjoyed as well as numerous places for casual dining in close proximity.

The apartment is spotless with all linen and essentials provided for a relaxing holiday. We particularly appreciate the company of our spaniel who is made welcome during “Off Season” holidays.

I would highly recommend Beachcomber to one and all.

Owner's Response: Beachcomber is certainly in a wonderful location, right on Horseshoe Bay and within easy strolling distance of the main street, coffee shops, hotels, restaurants, shops and of course the famous Port Elliot bakery. The sea views are spectacular. We aim for spotless presentation, beautiful linen and well maintained homes. Try our accommodation once and experience the difference! Philip and Wendy.

Well worth a visit.

We can't recommend this property highly enough. Great location, clean, very well appointed and the owners could not have been more helpful. There is everything you could need for a couple like us and would be perfect for a family. Virtually right on the beach and within walking distance of cafes and restaurants but there is a very well equipped kitchen if you need it. We have stayed there 3 times now and will definitely be back again!

We have stayed in many of the luxurious holiday homes offered by Encounter Holiday Rentals over many years. We particularly lover staying in their properties as they are clean, well presented, well maintained and they are furnished with everything you need. We always feel very comfortable and at home and if the need arises Encounter Holiday Rentals are always at the other end of the phone. We do not stay anywhere else when we visit Port Elliott. Most of their properties are walking distance to the beautiful beach and the shops. We particularly like Port Elliott for the bike riding path that goes all the way from Victor Harbor to Goolwa and so accessible from their holiday houses. We recommend these places to all our friends, and the friends that do pop in for a visit or stay with us are absolutely amazed and the presentation and luxuriousness of the properties.

Owner's Response: As our business Encounter Holiday Rentals is Tourism Australia and TQUAL accredited we do try to provide comfortable, spotlessly clean and well appointed homes for our guests. As we own and operate our homes we do take a personal interest in our guests and ensure that the homes are presented to the best possible standard. When looking to purchase a home we carefully consider the location in terms of proximity to the beaches, township and facilities such as the bike track and whale watching locations so that our guests can have the best possible coastal experience. Our phones are on 24/7 so when a guest picks up the phone to make a reservation or for assistance during their stay we are always available in person. We look forward to your email or call.

Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

The location is perfect and the view is even better. Nothing more relaxing than drinking wine on the spacious balcony. Have stayed twice and trying to find an excuse to go back. Owners are very accommodating.

Port Elliot

The historic township of Port Elliot is situated on the coastline between the towns of Victor Harbor and Middleton. Take in the magnificent coastal scenery from its many viewing spots or follow the coastal walks around the headlands and protected bays.

Horseshoe Bay is a protected swimming beach which is very popular with families during the long summer holidays. Take time to explore The Strand area with its many historic buildings, cafes, restaurants and shops.

Town Highlights

Crows Nest Lookout

This has to be the best seat in the house. Overlooking Goolwa, Middleton and some of Port Elliot these are some of the best views you will ever see.

Horseshoe Bay

Bring the family to this well known and highly regarded swimming beach. You can fish from the Jetty, watch the kids play in the Playground or go for a swim in this sheltered bay. Why not follow the rugged cliff around the coast and explore the little bays and beaches. Horseshoe Bay has been a favoured destination for visitors to the Fleurieu Peninsula for a long time come and experience this very popular destination.

The Strand

Wander the Strand and you will find yourself moving in and out of craft shops, old buildings and cafes. At the end of The Strand is the mighty Southern Ocean and a viewing point over the beautiful Horseshoe Bay. This is a great spot to view the passing Southern Right Whales in the Winter.
