A Fantastic home away from home

  • 5 of 5

A great home in a great location. Cafes and Restaurants close by and only 10mins to the City Centre. Added little touches included Netflix and Pushbikes which the kids loved.

This is our second stay at Rose among the Thorns, and was just as great as our first. Perfect location. Clean and tidy house with all the extras needed for a comfortable time away with the kids.

A real little gem!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Adelaide for a birthday celebration & stayed at "A Rose Amongst the Thorns for 2 nights. The accommodation was perfect for our needs, as we were travelling with our "fur baby" who was made to feel very welcome. Our host, Chris could not have done anymore to make our stay enjoyable. He was easy to communicate with, a wealth of local knowledge & went out of his way to make our stay pleasant. Right down to a bottle of "bubbles " in the fridge to greet us on our arrival. We loved our stay & hope to have the chance to stay again, next time we plan a sleep over in Adelaide. Thanks heaps Chris.

Excellent Property!

A charming cottage that makes you feel right at home. Great location, comfortable beds, wi-fi and netflix keep the kids entertained in the evenings. The host Chris is very accommodating - even provided us with local information about shopping etc. We will definitely stay here again - highly recommended.

This delightful cottage is a relaxed home-way-from home experience. Do not expect l'occitane bathroom products or luxurious bath towels, but expect wonderful help and hospitality from your host who goes above and beyond to be helpful and accommodating. The suburb is beautiful with an easy walk to the excellent Dulwich Bakery and the divine Sugo Pizzeria. Its also really close to town: we used Uber to get around.Very happy with our stay!
