Recently renovated, bright and uniquely furnished. Located south of Adelaide city my apartment is ideal for access to Flinders University and Flinders Medical Centre, it's close to Marion Shopping Centre and the Southern Expressway leading to southern beaches and the McLaren Vale wine region. There is plenty of public transport close by, both trains and buses, but a car makes getting around easier and can be parked in the carport.

The space

One of the things I love about my place is its location between the city and the southern beaches and wine regions. Town is a short drive or bus trip and the Southern Expressway to the McLaren Vale wine region is two minutes away. If you’re coming to visit Flinders University or Flinders Medical Centre you’ll be right across the road. If you want to visit shops and a large cinema complex, Marion Shopping Centre is down Sturt road or heading the other direction will take you to the beautiful natural environment of the Adelaide hills parks and wineries.
I’ve made this place my home, with recent renovations to the whole property it feels fresh and comfortable to live in. All of the appliances are new, there's Wi-Fi access and a smart TV so you can watch post-play services or plug in your own hard drive with movies. I grow lots of indoor plants here that love the ample sunlight and being on the second floor at the foothills there's a lovely breeze that fills the apartment.

Guest access

The whole apartment is available including the two bedrooms, the bathroom, an open-plan kitchen and living area and the western balcony. It is located on the second floor and can only be accessed via the external stairways.

Interaction with guests

I love to travel and I know how great it is to get advice from people about their home. If I’m around in Adelaide I’ll be happy to help you out over the phone with whatever it is you’re looking for. I’m also usually just an email away if you have any other questions. When I’m not around my mum looks after the place and she will certainly be happy to do the same.

Other things to note

Under cover on site parking is available for one vehicle. The apartment is located on the second floor, access is via a single flight of stairs.

We stayed in Ben's apartment for 2 weeks. Both Ben and his Mom (Barbara) welcomed us with a generous welcome pack (cereals, milk, spreads, bread, chocolates, tea, coffee, condiments etc) which we truly appreciated. Ben's apartment was fully equipped with kitchenware, toiletries, washing machine, dryer, heater, Apple TV. Everything was really clean and tidy and accurate to his listing. We especially LOVED the furnishings and design of the whole house. The location is a street away from Flinders University (Bedford Park) which was ideal for us students as we were an on exchange. There was a bus stop going into the city just 2 mins away. Bus into the city takes about 30-40mins, however the interval between each bus varies from 30-60mins. We had some issues with the WIFI and Ben was responsive and apologetic towards it. Overall, it was a pleasant stay and we would recommend everyone to stay here whilst in Adelaide!

Response from Ben:
Hi Athirah, thank you for your wonderful feedback! The issue with the internet was very unfortunate but it was a problem outside of my apartment and thus out of my hands. I am very sorry that it happened during your stay. As for the buses, that is strange because it is within the Adelaide Metro Go Zone which runs on average every 15 minutes.

Ben's place was the perfect location for studying at Flinders. The welcome pack was great.

Ben's place is perfect for long and short stays. It has everything you need and the welcome package made the first few days so easy, there was no stress of finding a supermarket whilst jet lagged. The place has everything you need, plenty of towels and bedding, loads of tea and coffee. Everything is nicely decorated. The downsides are the sofa, cooker and shower. The sofa is not comfortable for lounging, the cookers oven doesn't seem to light very easily and the showers water pressure is a bit light and the water kind of spurts in all directions. Other than those small things we thoroughly enjoyed staying here. Ben was very accommodating and he also allowed us to have a late check as our flight was in the evening. Thanks Ben!

This is a very nice accommodation with all the basic amenities travellers would need. Bus transport is very close but parking is available if you have a vehicle. We recommend this place for short or long term accommodation. Cheers!

Great place to stay. City easily accessible via Uber. We didn't manage to fathom the public transport options. Generous welcome pack.

This apartment is perfect to stay! It's in a great spot close to shops and public transport. Ben was a great host, communication was fantastic and when we arrived after a long trip the last thing you want to do is go food shopping for essentials! Ben had this all there for us in the fridge and bench it was a fantastic care package and a nice generous touch! The place was clean and had everything we needed. We will definitely book this again when our family comes over to stay. Thanks! 10/10

Bens place is superb- all the comforts you need and great value. The welcome pack of bread, butter ,milk, chocs , cereal etc was a lovely touch as well. Location eas superb as everything is near- with the city about 12 km away and the beaches like glenelg and brighton about 6 km. The big westfield mall in marion which had everything is only about a 5 minute drive. Overall- great experience and this will surely be my choice of accommodation whenever i go nack to adelaide!

Hey there, I’m currently following two of my passions, one for discovering our planet’s history through geological research and the other is photography. Both of these take me all over Australia and back and forth to Brazil so my place is often empty from time to time. I grew up in Adelaide and love the life that it has provided me with but I have also enjoyed living overseas and learning about other people and places. Whether you’re coming for work or a holiday here I would be more than happy to recommend things that will make your stay as best it can be.
