About the property

A classic Australian 1890's cottage - with delightful Courtyard

2013 AWARD Finalist for Stayz and Take A Break Accommodation Guide.

The Guesthouse is located in the leafy eastern suburbs of Adelaide and is only 1 km from the City. Walk into the City via a beautiful walk way lined with 150 year old gum trees, colonial olive orchards and some of the most lovely scenery in Adelaide. The Adelaide Botanic Gardens, Rundle Street and the North Terrace Cultural Precinct is a comfortable 30 minute walk.

Closeby to The Guesthouse is a bakery, supermarket, clothes stores, hair dresser, bottleshop, hotel and some very nice restaurants - all within a 10 minute walk. The historically-listed Eastwood Village has all that you need to make your stay in Adelaide fun and easy.

The Guesthouse is fully equipped with kitchen and laundry facilities, and provides a stylish and relaxed environment. The beds (both queen sized) are comfortable and the property is fully airconditioned/ heated. The place has some beautiful classic and original retro features - including decorative ceilings and 1970's French caustic-style tiles.

The property also has a small courtyard to view the plentiful supply of birds that visit from the adjacent Parklands and a barbeque for relaxed meals.

The Guesthouse is ideally located to take advantage of the Clipsal 500, Tour DownUnder, Fringe Garden and the Horse Trials. All of these events are an easy walk.

We hope to welcome you soon.

comfortable and homely

  • 5 of 5

I hope the next time we visit Adelaide "The Guesthouse" will be available. It was a home away from home. The owner had considered everything to make our stay comfortable down to supplying a shopping trolly for visits to the "best supermarket in the world" Thankyou and I hope we get to stay again.

Great place to stay in Adelaide

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property in a quiet location within walking distance of restaurants and transport. An ideal base for all that Adelaide has to offer. All the charm of a heritage terrace with a modern fit out gave us a most comfortable home like stay.

Delightful two bedroom cottage. I grew up in Adelaide and you could not ask for a better location (dare I say it is in the nicer part of Adelaide) - with the city on your doorstep, a supermarket awarded as the world's best, several large alcohol suppliers, Adelaide's famed chocolate shop, Haighs, and some very good restaurants, all just minutes away. The house really felt like a home away from home with beautiful decor including charming ornaments, books, magazines. It was quiet, clean, and the beds were oh so comfy. It has a lovely rear courtyard with a barbecue. I might add that it felt very secure as well. I look forward to staying there again. Oh, and please don't tell anyone I told you all this as I don't want it to be booked out next time I visit Adelaide.

Amazing property, amazing owner!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I stayed in Adelaide during the super storms. Martin contacted us to check we were okay, then had lit candles and torches ready on our return.

I couldn't have a better place to stay, with a more considerate and thoughtful owner.

The house is beautifully decorated, with a lot of thoughtful touches. It was wonderful to have the fridges stocked on our arrival, and being close to the worlds best supermarket was a huge positive.

I can't wait to go back again and stay in this beautiful house, close to everything and worth the journey for itself alone.
