Overview

About the property

A charmingly renovated turn of the century, 2 bedroom cottage.

This charming cottage is nestled in the southwestern quadrant of the CBD. It’s only a few minutes walk to the vibrancy of the Central Market, Gouger Street and Chinatown. An unexpected highlight of this property is the basalt-paved backyard featuring a majestic gum tree, and an organically grown kitchen garden which guests are encouraged to use. The living & dining area flow into the rear through large wooden sliding doors allowing for the best of both worlds. You can relax inside on the couch, or outside sit under cover or soak up the atmosphere in the shade of the gum tree. You have a choice of dining inside or using the large outdoor teak table and Weber Q which easily allow you to host a lunch or dinner. A large screen plasma TV and Music System with iPod dock is there for your entertainment or to assist you unwind. We provide complimentary Internet ADSL-2 Wi-Fi for our guests. The cottage has two bedrooms, one with pillow-top queen bed and the second with a queen shaker style bed. Professionally laundered linen is supplied. An additional double size temporary bed, including linen and Doona, is available - please advise if this is required. Children are welcomed and little ones under five although provided for, can stay for free. We have a port-a-cot and high chair which can be provided upon request. The cosy bedrooms are carpeted with rustic pure wool and include hanging robes, and extra storage. The fully equipped kitchen is a cooks delight with the warmth of beech bench tops and natural light, and stainless appliances, including dishwasher, microwave, and commercial grade cooker. Basic pantry items are supplied (Olive oil, Salt & Pepper, Red wine vinegar.) The traditional bathroom while compact incorporates a shower, basin and toilet. The laundry is inclusive of washing machine and tub. The property has reverse cycle ducted air conditioning. There is a double length carport to offer off street parking with lockable side entry for ease and security. We are happy to receive enquiries regarding travelling pets. We will consider these on a case by case basis.

The Market Cottage is superbly located, just a stone's throw from the cosmopolitan Gouger St precinct which has a fabulous array of cafes, restaurants, takeaway, bars and entertainment options, including Her Majesty's Theatre. Even closer is Cantina Sociale and the earthy Café Troppo, where you can grab your morning coffee and eggs. If you choose to cook during your stay, your options are plentiful, including the Central Market, supermarkets, organic food stores, and many other specialty food shops, all within a short walk. Beyond the Gouger precinct, Adelaide's East End Rundle Street, National Wine Centre, Botanic Gardens, Adelaide Zoo, Art Gallery, Museum, Adelaide Oval, Royal Adelaide Hospital and University are all a walkable distance. There are also free public transport options with stops nearby. We cater for Adelaide's festival lovers including those attending The Fringe, The Adelaide Festival, Womad, The Tour Down Under, V8 Supercars street circuit, and the International Horse Trials.

Love the cottage and it’s old character,in a great location,close to everything.My suv was a tight fit in the car port but it got easier with time.

A well presented cottage in a perfect location. Easy walk to the best shopping and eating in Adelaide. A pleasant surprise to have the courtyard garden with the fantastic gum tree. Carpark was a bit of a challenge!

Charming house in a fabulous spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Craig's house earlier this month. The house had everything we needed and was thoughtfully set up and appointed. It was in a fabulous spot so close to the Central Markets and within easy walking distance of many of the main attractions that we wanted to visit. The parking spot was a bonus as it would have been very difficult to find street parking otherwise. We were happy to return to a lovely warm "home" each evening after gallivanting around Adelaide all day. We will would be very keen to stay here again next time we are in Adelaide.
