Adelaide, Absolute Beachfront!
Condo | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Your beach home away from home! White sand dunes at the front door....no road gets in the way...what a treat!
It is rare to find a house (in Adelaide or anywhere in the world, really) where your front garden cascades directly to the sandy dunes and gently lapping sea you. We love this location and want to give you, our guest, the opportunity to experience the magic of living this close to the ocean.
This is a lovely, relaxed beach house that pays full tribute to the sea and views. Open the front door and the salty sea air and warm sun instantly takes you away from what ever is happening in the rest of your daily life. It is truly exhilarating. Don't come here if you are looking for something super modern or gleemingly glamorous because we believe that when you come to the beach you should feel comfortable and in the zone for all things related to the surf and sun. We want you to be fully present to the elements and enjoy the space. We expect you to feel you can traipse inside with sandy feet and leave your beach towels where they lay, eat your fish and chips inside or out and kick back and enjoy being somewhere incredibly special.
Our home is fully self contained and takes in the best sea (and sunset) views from the comfort of the couch in the living room to sharing a meal under the shade of the expansive outdoor dining area. The view from the master bedroom is extraordinary, too. There is sleeping room for six with a king sized bed, bunk and fold out double in three separate bedrooms. Public transport is close by or there is off road car parking. Fully ducted air-conditioning/heating will make your stay here in the summer or winter months very comfortable. Two showers (one bath) and toilets, laundry and dishwasher help to make your temporary beach house a place to relax and enjoy. We welcome you to experience a truly special piece of Adelaide's local beach oasis.

Thank you Shirin, it was lovely to have you and I'm so glad you enjoyed the stay, I'm just sorry you got stuck with an unseasonably cold week! Hopefully you can come back another time when the sun is out.
All the best to you and your family, Gen

"Fantastic location overlooking the sea with direct access to beautiful beach"
Property in superb location and well equipped with excellent outdoor seating and bbq area with uninterrupted sea views. Convenient location for shopping centre and restaurants in Semaphore and Grange but none within easy walking distance so car advisable. Owners are very helpful and provided bikes free of charge.
