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.
