4/5 Good

Nice relaxing property with fantastic location
Lovely well appointed house, fantastic location. We really enjoyed our stay and loved that it was pet friendly. We would definitely go back. The only thing I’d rate it down on was cleanliness, floors were a bit sticky and some of the kitchenware needed a clean, as did the bbq.

5/5 Excellent


3/5 Okay

Central to Yankalilla, Normanville and beaches, good location.
Has a combustion heater, but not fire guard, so if you have children be aware of this. Property uses septic tank, so water usage signs up everywhere. On suite was locked to stop using water, so if you like a nice long shower may be not for you.

5/5 Excellent

I only have good things to say about this property. It is located a short walk from the shop and beach in a quiet street. The house is most thoughtfully set up. It has everything you need and no extra clutter. The beds are very comfortable and whilst the bedrooms are small they are absolutely fine for a holiday stay. The house was spotlessly clean. We took 4 grandchildren under 10 and I cannot be more complimentary about the facilities for them. 4 scooters, a surfboard, the games room set up with games, great books a wi which actually works, Xbox in the main house and a table tennis table with bats and plenty of balls. The kids spent most of their time out there. The outside fire (which we didn’t use) and inside fire are added attractions. Thank you to Grant for a fantastic stay. You have obviously put a lot of effort into maintaining this holiday house with children in mind.

5/5 Excellent

A quiet retreat.
Check in was easy with all the info sent a few days prior. Lovely quiet location. Games room and scooters were a hit with the kids.
