About the property

Riverview Cottage:

A peaceful spacious holiday home in a quiet street in a holiday suburb by the sea. Nearby beach and jetty for swimming, historic township for walking, relaxing and more!

Are you looking for a comfortable home with lots of room that’s spotlessly clean, safe, and secure, perfectly located in a holiday and relocation suburb with unlimited hot water, unlimited wireless internet, and unlimited things to do in the local area? All this and good value too?

You have found the right home!

In our seaside holiday suburb (with some of the best beaches in the state) you can swim, surf, kayak, or paddle at the beach, from the jetty, under the reef or in the nearby river. You can play or relax in our natural environment of sea and sand under clear blue skies where memories are created to share or keep! Soak up the sun whilst you relax.

We moved here ourselves in 2007 and can offer advice and support. We have provided quality furnished homes in our seaside town since 2009 so don’t worry: we won’t be cancelling your booking at the last moment leaving you with nowhere to stay! Have a read of what we offer and then book your next stay with us in a real home from home.

Everyone will love my home because of space, the outdoor area (birds in the garden, and watching sunsets from the deck.) If you like a home with a comfortable bed, a secure garden, quiet neighbourhood, and beautiful sandy beaches this is the place for you.

This is a holiday village (for over a hundred years!) and you will love the relaxed holiday feel with miles of quiet sandy beaches, fishing spots, walks and bike paths.

Overseas visitors are welcome and we have hosted families from all over the world..interstate guests (and non-Crows or Port supporters) also welcome!

We are 15 minutes from Flinders and welcome stays from those needing quick access to medical facilities: Noarlunga hospital only 3 minutes away.

You have access to the entire furnished and fully equipped home from home.

You will have access to Free and Unlimited wireless internet during your stay.

This is the perfect location whether you are relocating / moving here as migrant or visiting for a relaxing holiday stay. You can stroll to the amazing local cafes and restaurants.

Worried about your stay? We are legit (licence number: BLD238504), we pay tax, and our ABN number is: ().

This home really is so close to all you need and will give you an enjoyable and memorable stay. It’s so well located that you can walk to beaches, shops & transport. Many guests don’t hire a car!

Looking for a longer stay whilst you settle or unwind? Discounts are offered for longer off- peak stay, so please enquire or enter dates for a price.

If you are looking for a home from home that’s spotlessly clean, safe, and secure with off street parking and fully equipped you have the right place. It’s the perfect home for families relocating, business travel, romantic getaways or visiting friends and family in Adelaide.

I have hosted hundreds of new overseas families, interstate visitors, and overseas holidaymakers and look forwards to having you stay in our scenic holiday home.

Please have a read my reviews. I have provided relocation and holiday homes since 2009.

The space

Welcome to your unique holiday location with everything you need right on your doorstep.

It is a quiet safe neighbourhood with walking access to local supermarkets, entertainment, beaches, and transport links.

Our eco- friendly (solar, water tanks, inverter aircons, insulation, pool covers etc) are waiting for you to make them your home during your stay.

With gorgeous beaches on your doorstep (Port Noarlunga and Christies have kilometres of unspoilt beaches and Port Noarlunga has won Australia’s cleanest beach award in 2009). There are shopping centres, cinemas, sports centres, gyms, and transport hubs only a few minutes’ WALK away and everything is within easy reach.

You can take a walk along our beachside esplanade walk or through a local reserve complete with kangaroos! Our local area is unique and unspoilt. The Port Noarlunga jetty is a popular angling and diving spot and it’s protected by a natural reef with ideal swimming conditions. The adjacent beach at Port Noarlunga South is a popular surfing spot.

Hire snorkelling gear and be amazed at the amount of marine life you can spot around the jetty and reef.

The wine-lands district of McLaren Vale and quiet coastal towns are also only a short 12 to 15 minutes distance away. There isn’t any other suburb that has so much variety of activities or places within such a short distance from them.

If you are looking for scenic walks, a lazy evening watching the sunsets over the ocean or a walk to local eateries this is the place. Relax and enjoy the ambience of the garden and the visiting birds.

We are so fortunate to have so much to offer. For those families that are relocating to our suburb the popular Port Noarlunga primary school is only a 900m walk away and there are supermarkets and shops in Beach Road, parks, tennis courts, bowling green, footy oval and reserves just around the corner.

Quiet 2 bedroom - so much better than a motel room

  • 5 of 5

Thought the cottage was fab- quiet, comfortable and introduced us to Port Noarlunga which we really liked. [Try the Indian!] Own locked carport, up the motorway to Adelaide city not a problem. The bed and bedding was comfortable ++
