The Hunting Lodge - cute cabin 4km from city

Bedrooms 1
Space 40 m²
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

This ideally located, self contained unit has everything you need at your fingertips. Only 4km away from the CBD and meters away from public transport, supermarket, 24 hour mini mart (OTR)/Subway sandwich bar, 24 hour gym and 24 hour McDonalds/McCafe (if you so desire!), less than 10min drive to the city or Flinders University, walking distance to Adelaide Showgrounds, farmers markets, cafes, restaurants and shops.

The unit features a brand new queen size bed, walk in wardrobe, free Wi-Fi, bathroom with laundry facilities (washing machine), clothes line, brand new fully equipped kitchen with gas stove, oven and microwave, TV and sofa bed. Reverse cycle air-conditioning and heating will keep you comfortable. There is a small outdoor courtyard with chairs and table to enjoy.

The accommodation features a separate lane way entrance from the main house on the property and has its own fenced off courtyard garden. There are no common areas between the unit and the main house so you will have complete privacy, however I am close by and happy to help guests with any questions. Although the property is located on a main road, the unit is nice and quiet set right back from the road and you will enjoy the very close proximity to public transport, food and shopping.

A basic pantry including some breakfast cereal options, seasonal fruit (subject to availability), milk and tea and coffee making facilities are available. Other consumables that are available in the house for guest use (eg. tissues, hand soap, cleaning products, other pantry supplies, toilet paper) are to be replenished by guest if you require more during your stay. Linen is provided.

Long term bookings are welcomed. This is a self serviced holiday house, however stays over 1 week can opt for a weekly or fortnightly service (basic clean and linen change) for an extra $30 charge per service. Otherwise, spare sets of linen and cleaning equipment are available for use as needed.

The booking is for up to 2 guests, however extra guests can be accommodated at a small extra charge for bed and linen. The brand new sofa converts into a double sized bed or other mattress options available.

There is a high chair and his and hers bicycles (you will need to supply your own helmet) available for your use.

Small pets are considered, the property is fully fenced however there is no grassed area on the property - the church gardens are right next door but please make sure any pet litter is disposed off properly.

Please see my website (the Hunting Lodge) for ideas on things to do around the area and in Adelaide.

About the area and getting around

Clarence Park is perfectly situated near the Adelaide Royal Show Grounds, within 5mins walk to 24 hour Goodlife gym, supermarket, 24 hour service station (convenience store and Subway), shops and a lovely 25min stroll (or less than 4 min drive) through some of Adelaide's finest streets to the King William Road, Hyde Park area - famous for fashion, cafe and dining options. Explore the local Adelaide Farmers Market (located in the Adelaide Royal showgrounds) every Sunday morning, just 25 minutes walk away. There are at least 4-5 op shops within 1-10 minutes walk as well as a delicious vegan bakery and vegan shopping mart.

There is no onsite carparking available, however there is a church carpark directly next door that is approved for guest use.

I have loan Metrocards for guest use on request (please top back up to value as you found them before you leave, can be done online) which can be used on Adelaide's public transport network.

Bus - The bus stop is only a few meters from the front door (taking you to the city - via Chinatown and the Central Markets and to Adelaide Oval (cricket/football), or South to Flinders University or Marion shopping centre)

Train - Millswood railway station is 8 minutes walk (700m) or 15mins walk to Clarence Park railway station.

Tram - taking you to Glenelg beach or the Entertainment Centre via the city, less than 5 minutes drive or 20mins walk away (1.6km).

Airport - 15mins drive/8.9km (allow 30mins incase of traffic)

Beach - If you have a car, Glenelg is around 15 drive (8km) or many other beautiful non-touristy beaches where you can snorkel, stand up paddle board or surf. There are lots of dolphins to see along the South Australian coastline and kayaking/SUP/boat cruise viewing opportunities are plentiful at historic Port Adelaide (30mins drive)

Wineries - McLaren Vale is only 30mins drive south

Great Location, Well Appointed

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed my stay at The Hunting Lodge. Very clean and well appointed with every little detail covered. Excellent quality natural soaps, shampoos, etc. Vast information folder provided. Host is very approachable and respectful of privacy. Easy access to CBD and Glenelg tram with short walk to bus, train and tram. Would stay again when in Adelaide.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Deanne & Ben were excellent hosts & always made sure everything was ok. Even when they were on holidays they ensured that I had people to contact for assistance. Deanne also assisted me with my booking when I needed to extend my stay whilst she was away. Upon arrival there was a welcome pack of fruit, muesli bars & Tim Tam biscuits. The unit has everything you need, is close to public transport & shops. I would definitely stay there again & recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere close to the city. I stayed from 20 September to 05 November 2017.

So convenient!

We had a great stay at the Hunting Lodge. The property is as described. The host is friendly and very helpful. There is an awesome vegan grocery store down the road, and a vegan bakery! Tram, train and bus are in close proximity. City and the beach super close. We would definitely stay at the Hunting Lodge again.
