Adelaide's quiet, leafy, Eastern area. This beautiful sandstone home is the perfect place to base your Adelaide stay. It always delights guests looking for a quiet retreat after a day of exploring.
Only minutes from the city centre, it is also close to the Adelaide Hills with wineries, Cleland Wildlife park - kangaroos and koalas, and beautiful towns to visit. It's the perfect place to base your cycling holiday, only two minutes from the beginning of the very popular hills cycling routes.

The space

This is a comfortable, renovated, light and airy home. The garden is lovely to sit in with a cup of coffee and watch the birds at breakfast or to relax with a glass of wine on a warm evening. Tea and coffee are provided for guests.

Each bedroom includes a queen size bed and wardrobe facilities. One bedroom also has a table and chair if you need to work.

There is a private bathroom with shower and toilet.

You have your own living area including kitchen, lounge with TV and dining room.

For your convenience, I provide environmentally friendly body wash, shampoo and conditioner. There is a hair dryer in the guests bathroom. There is also an iron and ironing table provided in the kitchen.

A comment I hear frequently from guests is "Its so quiet here", and its true, there is no traffic noise, all you hear are the birds.

NOTE: If your booking is for two people, but you wish to have both bedrooms, there is an additional cost of $35 per night. Just select 3 guests and the system will calculate the correct cost for you.

I live in the front half of the house, and my guests stay in the back half. Its up to you to let me know how much privacy you require. Some guests like to share the space with me, others prefer to have the space to themselves. I'm very relaxed about it. Just let me know and I will accommodate your needs.

Guest access

Free on street parking for as long as you like - with no cost. Only the city streets are metered.

Your booking includes free wifi.

Interaction with guests

I have enjoyed being an airbnb host since January 2014. During this time I have met many wonderful people.

Part of the airbnb travellers experience can be getting to know new people and benefiting from local knowledge when you arrive in a new city. I am happy to be that person for you, and to discuss your plans, or suggest places you might visit while you are here.

However, some people prefer to have minimal contact and enjoy the privacy and seclusion of this beautiful home.

I'm relaxed about either scenario... I usually figure out what you need when you arrive. But if I get it wrong, just let me know.

Other things to note

Note that this is not a place for parties or friends to visit. It is anticipated that just those who are included in the booking will be in the house.

While airbnb lists infants separately, I ask you to pay for all people in your group. Please ensure that the number of guests is clear when you make your booking.

Caristia's place was an excellent choice for several days vacation. Caristia is a hospitable host, and on hand if you require anything. We were given detailed instructions before arriving, which ensures a stress free arrival. Erindale is a very pretty suburb of Adelaide and close enough to the city for exploring. We had a car but Caristia kindly left 2 bus passes for our use, which in my opinion was a thoughtful gesture. Happy travels in the future Caristia.

Spacious, clean, warm & comfortable in a very pleasant area. The bus to town saved us looking for parking & the major roads in the area allowed for easy driving to other parts of Adelaide. Caristia is great to chat to. We would book again if in Adelaide.

Response from Caristia:
Thanks Noel it was lovely to host you both. Thanks for the feedback too. As it happens, I have today unpacked a brand new bbq for the summer, and the garden setting will be pulled out of storage now that the spring has finally come. :)

Caristia was a wonderful host and the space she offers is exactly what is found on line. It was well placed in a quiet area but close enough to shops and walking. Check in was easy and all instructions were simple to follow. A lovely place to stay with great hospitality.

We are a family of four with a 3 year old and 5 month old. We really enjoyed our stay here - it was a home from home with good quality furniture and bed linen/towels etc, which all helps make a stay of several days more comfortable. It was great having a garden at our disposal for our 3 year old to run around. Lovely quiet neighbourhood with a nice park about a 15 minute walk away and the city centre about a 15 minute drive. Accessible location for the Adelaide Hills also. Friendly host too. Overall a gem of a stay!

We just had a long vacation in Adelaide. We stay in Caristia's house for 11 days. Her house has a great location, 10 minutes drive to city, 25minutes to airport, and very easy to find. There is no noises at all and you can just hear birds singing around your. We had a lovely bed room, a clean bathroom,a big kitchen, and a big living room as well. And what we like most is her big yard, we do enjoy our time there. If you like wine, Penfolds is so close and you can even walk there. Caristia is a very nice lady. She looks after us so well. We got lots of information from her and she just so kind to share her home with us. We just got the feeling that we stay in our own home. We strongly recommend this house to everybody if you stay in Adelaide. No matter you have a long vacation or short holidays. No better choice than that!

Hi, I am an ex-pat Kiwi living in Adelaide. I love to travel .. I speak a little Spanish and I hope to improve, when i get the time !!!

I like to meet real people when I travel, so I am excited that with Airbnb I can also meet new people when I am at home.

In 2011 I visited Peru, Argentina and Chile. In September/ October 2014 I travelled to the US for the first time. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in San Francisco and then in Colorado. Guess what? .. I stayed airbnb and loved experiencing airbnb from the other point of view ... staying in peoples homes and enjoying THEIR hospitality !!

I have recently become a keen cyclist and am enjoying using all the cycle tracks in the city .. I would be very happy to provide information to help you do the same :)
