Excellent property with all we could need

  • 5 of 5

The location and amenities were great. Beautifully presented home. The shower was a little tricky to climb in and out of, but we managed.

Owner's Response: Hi Kerry Thank you for your feedback and I'm so glad you had a great stay. Your mum sent me some lovely photos she took of the cottage. Thank you for these and please pass my regards to her. Good you all were able to step in and out of our claw bath/shower. I'm glad your mum had a great time travelling in SA and at our cottage, and enjoyed turning 80 with family and friends around her. It was lovely to meet you both and we warmly welcome you back anytime you visit Adelaide.

Absolute Perfection

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I booked, and the delightfully welcoming response I received from Alida, I knew this property was going to be very special.

As pretty as they are, the photos do not do this beautiful place justice. Alida has created a haven in North Adelaide that just happens to make this perfect location even more desirable.

Not only are you 2 mins walk to free shuttle busses to the city and North Adelaide surrounds, restaurants, bars and the likes, situated in a stunningly beautiful, quiet streetscape, step inside and you'll immediately be blown away by the attention to detail.

From the minute you arrive you're greeted by the beautiful decor, gorgeous lightness and thoughtful touches you'll not get at a hotel.

The bed linen is divine. The rooms light, airy and the vintage / period styling is a delight.

Along with all the mod cons e.g. fully equipped kitchen with more utensils, cutlery and crockery than you'll think you'll ever need...ever, washer/dryer, air cond there is a luxury period style bath, lounging area, divine bedroom with oodles of storage, loads of steady hot water and natural light in abundance. It all equates to a perfect stay in beautiful Adelaide.

We will definitely be back to SA and when we do, we will be booking this beautiful location time and time again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Marnie for your kind words. I have tried to make our cottage 'a home away from home' so it always gives me a thrill when our guests enjoy their stay. Thank you for leaving the cottage so neat and tidy and such good house guests - I really appreciate it, and warmly welcome you anytime you visit Adelaide. Kind regards,

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Stanley Cottage. It is extremely comfortable and everything that we needed was there. Thank you Alida. The closeness to parklands and dog-run-free area was fantastic for our two little dogs. And we enjoyed the restaurants and caffes in Melbourne Street.

Owner's Response: So glad you had such a lovely stay Helga and I couldn't even tell you had little dogs staying! The place was spotless! North Adelaide has such a variety of cafes and restaurants that you will definitely need to pop over again for a visit - please come again and bring your pooches with you. Kind regards, Alida

Close to Adelaide Attractions

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 9 year old nephew, and 9 year old Labrador had a wonderful stay at Stanley Classic Cottage. The cottage is very tastefully furnished and the upstairs bedroom was ideal for my nephew. It is close to a number of Adelaide attractions, such as the zoo. I would be happy to stay at Stanley Classic, next time I visit.
