This property had everything we needed
Great property for our family and 2 little dogs.
The owner is friendly and the internet was slow and has a bad shower too
Thanks for taking the time out to let me know about the slow internet, ive ordered a new modem so I'm hoping that will improve the speed. Unfortunately i had no idea a shower was not working well as it has not been reported to me. I will check with the guests staying atm and have it fixed asap as this is not good for future guests staying. Appreciate you letting me know though.
Found that the property was comfortable.
We totally enjoyed our time at Shelley's house. Beening central to the cafe"s and restaurants.snd a short distance to the city. With the availability to have our pet with us too.
Absolutely loved it!
Loved our stay at the Prospect guest house. Our host couldn't of been kinder, she even went as far as leaving a gift for each of our children upon arrival, which made their day! 😊 The guest house was unbelievably roomy, I was completely surprised in just how much room there was. The pictures shown on the site really don't do this property justice, it is absolutely beautiful. The guest house has a good sized kitchenett and dinning room with everything you could possibly need to make your stay comfortable. It has two very large bedrooms, one with two large double beds and one sofa bed, TV, cupboard, draws and desk. And still plenty of floor space for the kids to play! The second bedroom has a beautiful timber lounge suite, a large queen size bed, hanging space, draws, TV and an ensuite bathroom. Just outside next to the back door is a 2nd large bathroom! Which definitely came in handy. This particular part of prospect is very quiet and the surrounding homes are stunning. We thoroughly enjoyed this particular property and would highly recommend it to anyone who is wanting affordable homely accommodation for their stay in Adelaide. And it's only a short drive into the city! We will definitely be staying again on our next visit to Adelaide.
Thanks so much for taking the time out to write this lovely review. Your family is welcome any time. So glad you loved my house as its recently been upgraded and has obviously paid off. The area is magnificent with Prospect Rd now a vibrant hub of restaurants and shops.
Good value and great location for almost anything in and around Adelaide with the plus of local shops and eateries.
A week in Adelaide
We live in the far North of South Australia and travel a lot. Often we stay in accommodation offered through agencies similar to this. Prospect Cottage has a great location in a leafy Inner suburb of Adelaide with good cafes and restaurants close by. The surrounds provide a very pleasant place to walk.
The name evokes images of rustic charm. However, while we found the accommodation to be quite rustic unfortunately, the charm was missing.
It consisted of three main rooms, one of which doubled up as a bedroom and lounge room. To get to the only bathroom without going outside guests had to walk through this bedroom lounge. Accessing the second bathroom meant a walk outside along a dodgy narrow sloping pathway.
The kitchen also provided another bed of sorts, in the manner of a bench seat.
When we travel we like to cook a meal without having to eat out all the time. What we found was chipped crockery and a burnt saucepan and other utensils which had appeared to have had another life elsewhere. One of the dishes, a bowl, had been put away with the remnants of the last meal still apparent.
Water pooled in the shower and the walls and doors either hadn’t been painted for a long time or, as in the case of the doors, not at all.
The “rustic “ garden consisted of a struggling patch of lawn with a plastic table and two chairs pushed up against the back fence. There were no bbq facilities, but given the outside surrounds it wasn’t missed.
The laundry consisted of a washing machine huddled in the carport which was secured from the street by a cumbersome ugly brown sliding door.
In short the accommodation was not up to the standard that we have come to expect from this agency. However it would suit an end of year footy team or suffice as a crash pad for a buck’s show. But, at the end of the day, you get what you pay for.
Peter sorry to hear my "budget" Property that the two of you booked (however had 3/4 extra guests snuck it at no charge) wasn't up to your standards. I like to think the price reflects what you get (as you have stated you get what you pay for) and this is why my property is not $150 to $200 per night for two people. The week cost you and your extended family about $600 and you were disappointed?
As I live next door I would have been only to happy to come across and clean the bowl and throw out any chipped crockery. I apologize for the dirty bowl and it will be noted with my cleaner who will also be instructed to go through all the crockery to find chips.
I explain (description) that the second bathrm is outside and there is not a separate lounge room. That's why my prices are so good, as these things are considered.
Unfortunately pets ruin the lawn but thats what happens when you accommodate dogs. A dog you were going to bring until you realized it would cost an extra $50. Please to say though as you did not bring your dog the lawn had a chance to recover and is almost back to perfection. If there are any pet owners planning on bringing pets please hose down the lawn every night so the grass does not burn.
I will be posting up a photo of the outdoor slope to the outdoor bathroom so everyone can see it before they book. It has a normal slope running away from the house so salt damp does not occur.
Very unfair to make a comment about the ugly brown sliding gates being cumbersome when while you were staying my maintenance man showed up and fix the problem. These doors now slide back with ease. Unfortunately they are still ugly brown but I like to think that the beauty is within.
You asked if 3/4 more could stay and when i said yes for an extra $60 you declined and snuck them in instead. When I questioned why all the beds had been slept in on departure you could not give me a satisfactory answer apart from you had your suite cases on them. This was not the case, I know how my cleaner and I make beds and they extra three that had been made up including the lovely Cain wicker in the kitchen had all been slept in.
Yes this is a great venue for larger families on a budget or bucks/hens/birthday gatherings if you intend to go to the city and need a close place to town to stay, that will accommodate 8 people comfortably.
The pooling water in the shower will be dealt with ASAP.
Hope you have a better experience on your next trip to Adelaide.
