Very appealing property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 5 nights at the Lotus Eater and would happily recommend it. It's in a great location close to the city with a flat and easy walk into town. It's very private and well set up with everything you need. It's really nicely furnished with lots of colour and interesting bits and pieces from what we assumed was the owner's travels. Would be happy to return if we were in Adelaide again.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I recently had the pleasure to spend some time here at The Lotus Eater. Absolutely beautiful - comfortable, convenient and has everything you could possibly need. Really feels like stepping in a little patch of Bali - just needs the beach (which by the way is not too far away and easily accessed by tram!) Thanks Angela for a wonderful stay in Adelaide - I shall return!

A beautiful hideaway with walking distance to the tram and close to restaurants in Unley street.

Angela has thought of everything to make it comfortable, calming and welcoming and I will definitely be recommending your place to friends and family.

lovely stay in tranquil garden studio

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, comfortable, clean and private accomodation right on the park with easy access to Adelaide CBD. We had a lovely stay and enjoyed being able to cook and hang out in the garden in the downtime, plus super-comy bed.
