About this listing
The best location you'll find near Glenelg - away from the noise and traffic, yet within very close walking distance. With two bedrooms and a fully equipped kitchen, you'll have all the conveniences you need for a great holiday! A fantastic location, one block away from the tramline! Malcolm Street is a beautiful, quiet street, but you're only 400m from Jetty Rd Glenelg shops, cafes, restaurants and attractions, free tram to beach, tram to city. One of the best beachside suburbs around!
Once up the stairs, the apartment opens up to a living / dining area which is air-conditioned/heated and connects to the kitchen/laundry space.
The kitchen is very spacious and well equipped with an oven and gas cooktop, plenty of bench space, pantry, microwave and a dishwasher. Cook up a storm or stroll down to Jetty Road for meals.
Both bedrooms have a queen sized bed (with linen provided), TV/DVD player, wardrobe, drawers and air conditioning/heating. Bedroom one is around the corner from the living areas while bedroom two is adjacent the kitchen. At the end of the hall, there is an area we call the 'nook'. It is large enough for a single bed and could become a private space for a child (or two small ones), just outside the door to bedroom 1.
The laundry has a washing machine and drying racks. The bathroom contains a toilet, shower and vanity.
We are child friendly and a stair gate, cot and highchair can be provided if required.
There are games, dvds, books and children's toys, but the best thing is the beach and Glenelg attractions nearby.
The apartment is fully self contained. There is no garden access.
Interaction with guests
We can be contacted by phone if help is required for your stay. You will have the entire apartment to yourselves. We will enter the foyer if you need us to collect rubbish for you.
Glenelg is the most popular beachside location in Adelaide / South Australia. It is full of cafes, restaurants, night life, shops, including the ever popular Haigh's Chocolates. There is the GU film house (movies / cinema), the library, Beachouse amusement park, Bay Discovery Centre, Art Gallery and Visitor Centre. You can snorkel, sky dive, flyboard, go boating, or just treat yourself to a day spa or massage. Moseley Square is ever popular for families with a nature playground by the beach, as well as a water feature for children to play in.

If you have a car there is free parking on the street. The tram stop is less than 400 metres walk. There are also buses on Brighton Road (400 metres walk) and Jetty Road in Glenelg. The airport is approximately 15-20 minutes by car/taxi.
The tram takes 25 minutes to arrive in Adelaide's CBD and shopping precinct. Purchase your tram tickets on board with coins or cards only (no dollar notes accepted). Also, travel within the CBD via trams is free so it is very easy to hop on and off and check out the city sites. The cost for the tram is the same if you travel 10 stops or 2 so keep this in mind. Also, one tram ticket can be used for two hours. So if you get on at 9.00am and validate your ticket and get back on again before 11.00am you can use the same ticket without costing you any extra. The cost per person is cheaper between 9.00 am and 3.00pm and is approximately $3.00. Concession and seniors fares are available. Your tram ticket is also able to be used on any bus or train service in Adelaide. A visitors pass is also available and allows you unlimited travel for 3 days for $25.
Other things to note

The neighbourhood is generally very quiet day and night. You'll probably hear our children playing in the backyard.
The neighbourhood has nearby residents who are elderly so it would be appreciated if noise was kept to a minimum, particularly in the evenings.
