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.

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.

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.

Lovely well appointed dog friendly cottage. Would highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Property was lovely cottage. Well appointed with plenty of kitchenware and tableware. 2 minutes walk to gouger st and gorgeous wine bar very close. Wonderful place for us to stay with our pet cavoodle. Park just around the corner. Large courtyard. Carport was a tight squeeze but manageable. Would highly recommend and would love to stay here again.

Amazing property in an ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

Great property, right in the heart of Adelaide! Super comfortable bed, and even has a parking spot. Beautiful outdoor courtyard and the owners were more than welcoming of our two dogs. Can’t wait to get back again!

Inner-city gem

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly positioned for walking our dog and all the city highlights. Cottage extremely comfortable with everything you need. Luckily we had a compact SUV and fitted neatly into the carport. Lovely owners who helped us out a couple of times.

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!
