Had a wonderful 2 week stay. Quite an old house but everything is well maintained. Very comfortable for myself, husband and dog. Loved how the car was off the street under a carport high enough to park under with the kayak on board. Our dog is used to sleeping inside at night times but adapted to sleeping outside really well as the back area is so protected and she had a kennel to sleep in. This is a place I would stay again value for money and so close to beach, shops and eating places.

Second visit; very happy and would recommend

  • 5 of 5

My wife, mother - in - law, myself and Crosby, our dog stayed at this "Pet Friendly" home in Semaphore. It was our second visit, having stayed in February, 2017 when medical appointments first brought us to Adelaide. We noticed some subtle improvements in the home which we already had thought highly of. eg A new shower screen replaced one with a slight crack. The garden was very secure for Crosby who enjoyed having a kennel under a cool veranda. Once again, we enjoyed the big barbecue, spacious outdoors table and veranda for outdoor meals. The location's close to Port Adelaide market, Semaphore beach and foreshore, etc so is highly recommended. It was also a convenient trip to Memorial Hospital and Ashford Hospital. A final note: owners Karina and Adam are respond rapidly to

questions via email and text. messages. Very good value - for - money.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Miller's home. It was perfectly situated for the Dragon Boat championships at West Lake. The home was spacious and well appointed and we loved the decor. Nice quality linen and towels and good instructions for appliances. It was great being able to walk to the shopping centre and the beach and we really appreciated the off-street parking. We also appreciated being able to arrive at a time that worked for us. We would highly recommend this lovely cottage.

great property and location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 nights. Very clean and well presented house. Walking distance to beach, famous Semaphore Rd and an easy drive to doctors' surgeries. The back verandah, big barbecue and neat garden complemented each other. Easily shut gates and solid fences created a secure environment for our dog, Crosby. We'll certainly apply to return.
