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 or portacot 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.

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.

Perfect in every way

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this little gem for 8 nights. The house is extremely well equiped and the location is perfect. Walking distance to the markets, which are amazing and walking distance to Chinatown as well as many other restaurants. Spoilt for choice. The cottage is very comfortable and homely. We actually didn't want to leave. We made use of the back garden and the Webber. Craig made contact to make sure everything was OK which was much appreciated. We would highly recommend the cottage and hope to return. We were also surprised at how quiet the location was. Perfect!

Calm and comfort in the beating heart of Adelaide

  • 4 of 5

We loved the cottage, its old world charm and modern comforts, but most particularly its location, one block from Central Market. Close to restaurants, theatres and transport, but tucked away in peace and quiet. Bellissimo.
