Our house as viewed from the bottom of the beach ramp. I said it was just a hop, skip and a jump from the front porch to the sea!This photo speaks for itself. You are pretty much ON the beach, but the best thing is that while you are enjoying your meal alfresco (maybe cooking the fish you've caught on the BBQ) you can watch a sunset, & have no sand in your food. Ideal beach picnic!

The space

Your beach home away from home! White sand dunes at the front (URL HIDDEN) 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 where you want 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 seven with a king sized bed, single bed bunk, single bed and a double bed bunk (double below, single above) in three separate bedrooms. Public transport is close by or there is off road car parking (private garage and other car parks).Fully ducted air-conditioning/heating will make your stay here in the summer or winter months very comfortable. Two showers, a bath and two 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.

WHAT'S IT LIKE??
This home has been furnished in keeping with a beach side feeling, with a splash of retro, using quality mid century items of furniture.

My dream has been to live by the sea and that is why I own this beautiful house. When my husband. my two children and I aren't staying here we want to share it with anyone else who has a desire to experience what it's like wake up to the sound of the waves.
I work in Adelaide as a consultant and have created flexibility in my working day so that I'm available to manage this house through Airbnb. We have beach toys and books, linen and kitchen utensils and many games to keep children and adults amused. As the saying goes..."Mi casa e' tu casa" (my house is your house)
Come and enjoy the best part of Adelaide at our favourite local beach.
Oh, and, of course, I love to travel, so if I'm not in Adelaide I'm somewhere else emersing in a different culture, enjoying it with my husband and children. Maybe I will be in your part of the world!
Hope to meet you soon.
