An intimate, private retreat overlooking the Yankalilla River, where you can relax, unwind and experience Mother Nature at her best.
This special cottage provides a place where you can enjoy the simple pleasures in life, as you immerse yourself in the beauty of nature.
Large windows and glass doors flood the home with natural light, seamlessly blending the warm, rustic interior with breathtaking views of the majestic, ancient forest of river red gums outside.
A large adjoining deck provides the perfect place to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of the Yankalilla River flowing beneath you. Savour long, leisurely meals on the deck accompanied by the resident harem of blue wrens. In the evening, sit back with a glass of wine, or two, as you take in the stunning orange-red sunsets.
Unwind in front of the Nectre wood fire, curl up on the sofa with a good book or lie back in the clawfoot bath with French doors framing the picturesque River below and the wide, expansive sky above.
Wildlife for you to enjoy includes resident kangaroos, kookaburras, ibis, rainbow lorikeets, fairy-wrens, honey eaters and silver eyes.
The Garnet Kelly Big Gorge Walk, located two minutes’ walk away, provides incredible bushwalks, as does the nearby Deep Creek Conservation Park.
A short drive takes you to charming Normanville village, where you can dine at quality cafes and restaurants, shop at the local markets and browse the stores and second-hand shops. You will also find a number of wineries, breweries and gin distilleries dotted throughout the area.
The cottage is located close to spectacular beaches: 2km from the pristine shores of Normanville Beach, 1km from Lady Bay Beach and 5km from Carrickalinga Beach (voted Australia's #1 beach by Lonely Planet).
The cottage is conveniently located enroute to Kangaroo Island, which is 50km away.
If let as a B&B, the appraised rental return of the cottage is $230-$260 per night.
Amidst a busy world, some special places hide in plain sight… and this little gem is only one hour’s drive from Adelaide.
