The Lodge, our home which is hidden on a quiet inner city street, is only 14'minutes walk to the CBD.
A large exposed brick lounge, with superb natural lighting, overlooking the backyard with trees keeping it cooler in the summer, and gas heating & OFP ensuring ’The Lodge’ is cosy in winter.

There's just the 3 of us residing here, Ben and myself, plus Marvin the Dawg. So I'd say it is essential that you love dogs, because Marvs is quite the loveable affectionate character, to say the least.

The space

Comfy Queen size bed, a desk and set of drawers to keep your clothes all packed away nicely. Also, I have provided a UE Mini Boom Bluetooth speaker to use. The room is quite small but is really cozy. All appliances are made available for you to use. We have a great kitchen with gas cooking, and an amazing shared bathroom, both sporting plenty of natural light. Seriously, the bathroom is pretty damn sweet.

Guest access

No smoking indoors, but there is no problem with smoking out the back or on the front porch. Boasting super fast NBN wifi at the highest tier, and an oh so comfy couch, with an awesome Sound System and a TV. AND, it's literally one kick of the footy (torp, down wind) to our local dive bar, The Beaufort. Use of all appliances and ammenities The Lodge has to offer will be made available to guests.

Interaction with guests

Ideal for single guests or couples. All are welcome. Feel free to be sociable, but no pressure. Your privacy will be respected at all times. The Lounge area is ideal for kicking back and watching movies or drinks by the Open Fire Place.

Other things to note

The Lodge becomes more of an experience and has an amazingly unique homely feel about it...especially with the after dark ambience.

Wil's place is a cozy little nook about 5 minutes away from the CBD. It's a tastefully done up home which had everything we needed. Marvin the dog was an absolutely adorable little pooch. Wil was a really helpful host - he even stayed up till 3am awaiting our arrival from the airport and to show us around the place. Thanks for your hospitality,Wil!

This place is great! Stayed here whilst looking for a permanent house. Wil (and Marvin the dog) are friendly, helpful and relaxed. Nice room, great location, and felt right at home. Thanks!

Place was very large and in a nice quiet area to say it's so close to the city. Good bar 2 mins away, a street full of Italian restaurants, banks and woolies 5 minute walk away. Service stations about 2 minute walk away, bottle shop even closer. Marvin the dog is full of love and WiL is ready to help if you need it! Only downfall which stopped us throwing down 5 stars is that a couple of times we were woken up at around 2am/3am by others in the house

First time in an airbnb for me. Everything was as per website and Comms with WiL. For a very sensible professional person from Adelaide, I feel I unleashed a little bit of my inner hipster while staying there. PS Marvin the dog was great
