Rapid Bay Holiday Rentals

Just booked in Rapid Bay

This cute cottage is situated in the small fishing village of Cape Jervis (on the mainland) gateway to Kangaroo Island. Whether your heading to the island or leaving, this is perfect location to stop, unwind, revive before you continue your journey. Or you may want to hike a section of the Heysen Trail, or trek through Deep Creek National Park, or just do nothing and relax.
The cottage has all basic retro amenities that u need, it's cozy, relaxing and a great place to unwind. It's just our family holiday home, we hope you enjoy it as well
It's a peaceful location not many people. There is only 1 pub/petrol station/convenience store There are 2 beaches, 2 national parks near by, plus the ferry leaves here to go to KI.(45 minute journey)
  • Perfect location when going to/from kangaroo island since only 3min drive to the ferry. Beautiful view, cozy, comfortable beds, warm fire, feels like home! Troy is a great host.

  • Troy's place was fantastic, just like our family beach house back home, clean comfortable and great views. Troy was also easy to contact and really helpful. A perfect stopover on the way to Kangaroo Island or the return. Highly recommended.

    Michael2017-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • A cozy place to sit back and relax, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The warm and inviting fire place made us feel right at home. This shack is close to other beautiful locations such as Rapid Bay and Second Valley. Troy was an amazing host with fantastic communication, making sure we settled in ok. We'd love to come again soon! :)

    Hannah2017-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • Troy's house was a great base for doing as much or as little as you want in the area. Troy had great communication, and provided staples to use if we forgot to get them on the way. The house had great heating, you wouldn't know the weather outside was coming straight from Antarctica. Our family would highly recommend Troy's house for anyone looking for a place to stay somewhere away from the mainstream tourist areas - but located close enough to get to locations like Victor Harbour and Kangaroo Island.

    Kathy2016-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely secluded spot with birdlife galore and views to kangaroo island.

    Adam2017-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage. Clean beds. Feels like home. Very convenient to enjoy a good walk at the Heysen Trail. Troy is an excellent host, who make extra effort to find out if we found the place. Will stay for more nights when we come to South Australia again.

  • Lovley home! Very nice and accomodating host.

  • We absolutely loved our stay. Close to beaches and beautiful walks. Troy's communication was superb, he was an awesome host. We felt right at home and was exactly what we needed.

    Duckcottage is a five room stone settlers cottage built in 1853 on five acres of bushland at Second Valley. We call it 'duck' cottage because of the height of the doorways. It has been lovingly restored, and is secluded but close to the beach
    The cottage is nestled into a five acre garden in the undulating hills of the Fleurieu Peninsula. It has been lovingly restored and is maintained by a local builder. It has been our summer cottage for 30 years and is full of memories for us. When we first bought the cottage the land around it was entirely bare, except for a row of pine trees along the roadside boundary and some ancient trees near the house which are wonderful for climbing or for supporting the hammock. Now the hillside is a flourishing bushland and the garden surrounding the cottage is full of birds and flowers. Inside the cottage we have introduced the best of modern conveniences but made them compatible with the era, so there is a nicely appointed bathroom and kitchen, but we have a minimum of electronic devices- there are no screens or clocks but there is a CD player and a selection of books and games to enjoy in front of the huge open fire - or outside in the hammock. There are two living rooms, the lounge room with its retro settee and open fire is warm in winter and cool in summer. The large country kitchen /dining room has up-to-date electric appliances as well as the original wood stove which adds warmth and nostalgia. (it no longer works as an oven). The small bedroom has two single beds, and the main bedroom has a queen sized bed. All have quality linen, pillows and doonas (with cotton blankets for summer) Electric heating is provided to supplement the wood fires and there are fans in summer. Duck cottage is a private, restorative space which is a perfect 'get-away'. Mobile phone coverage is quite good ... so those who need screens can bring them.
    The beach at Second Valley is a five minute drive from the cottage (or a 25 minute walk) It is a unique beach with impressive rock formations and a safe sandy cove which is excellent for swimming, snorkeling and diving. Fishing is allowed from the jetty. Our favorite body surfing beach Morgan’s Beach which a 20 minute drive to Cape Jervis. It is a long sandy beach at the foot of magnificent sand dunes. Rapid Bay beach is closer Than Morgan’s but not suitable for swimming. The fishing from the Rapid Bay jetty is said to be the best in the district, and there are impressive aboriginal caves at the north end of the beach. There are a number of parks and reserves for bush-walking and camping. The largest are the Deep Creek Conservation Park and the Taliska Silver Mine however we also enjoy walking in the Second Valley Forrest which is home to flocks of yellow tailed black cockatoos and wedge tailed eagles. There are a number of excellent restaurants in the vicinity. Leonard’s Mill is an easy walk from the cottage, it has a bar (and is our local pub) as well as the fine dining. Travel north to Normanville/Yankalilla for a range of restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. You can also purchase high quality locally produced wines, cheeses, honeys and other produce. Groceries, fuel and fishing tackle are available from the Delamere General Store which is a ten minute drive south of the cottage. And the Kiosk at Second Valley Beach carries a more limited range of staples. One of our favorite things in this area is the night sky. On a moonless night the heavens are dazzling and on a moonlit night nothing can beat a walk up through the bush to the top of the hill or a walk along the beach.
  • Beautiful rusty secluded cottage. Couldn't have asked for more

  • We had a lovely stay at Duck Cottage, the perfect getaway for two nights! The cottage is so quaint and beautiful, surrounded by lovely gardens and so peaceful. The fireplace was perfect as it was cold and rainy when we stayed. Everything was clean and tidy and the bed was super comfy. Margie was easy to communicate with and quick to respond. Thanks for a lovely weekend Margie.

    Matthew & Christie2017-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • A gorgeous cottage in such a peaceful setting. Margie couldn't have been more helpful! Thank you :)

    Cassandra2016-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Duck cottage was a wonderful experience for us. It's in a lovely setting with a beautiful beach and deep creak nearby. Margie was extremely helpfu with all the instructions needed for access and use of the cottage. They have made the cottage a very warm and welcoming place with a well equipped kitchen and beautiful grounds too. Thank you for a lovely stay

    vasundhara2016-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • I loved my stay at Duck Cottage. The location is secluded but convenient for exploring the area. The cottage is comfortable with every thing you need. I wish I could have stayed longer. As a host Margie was a delight to deal with, helpful & communicative. I had an awesome stay!

    Abigail2017-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in Duck Cottage for a winter weekend getaway with our kids and absolutely loved it! It's set in a beautiful location surrounded by a well established cottage garden, native scrublands and rolling hills with cows and sheep. It's very private but only a short distance from Second Valley and Delamere, and about 20 minutes drive to Deep Creek conservation Park. The cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay with lots of attention to detail. We didn't miss the TV at all, as there was plenty of exploring to do outside as well as board games and books etc inside. We also found that we had really good mobile coverage with Telstra. Margie provided very clear instructions for checking in, and the cottage was clean and homely. It was a very easy weekend away, and we were lucky to have beautiful weather as well. We would definitely love to return for another stay in the future.

    Our unique self-contained cabin offers a beautiful stopover on a 10 acre farm, in a convenient location close to the Cape Jervis to Kangaroo Island ferry - only 10-15 minutes by car from our doorstep. Ideal for couples or two singles.
    Our cabin space is separate from the main house - and has all the comforts of home. It is very cosy - with two double beds: one king sized, one ordinary double - making it ideal for couples or two single friends. Fabulous views - make the location truly memorable.
    The neighbourhood has spectacular views to Starfish Hill Windfarm, Rapid Bay and Kangaroo Island. Great for those who love to take photographs!
  • Kathryn is warm and welcoming, with a lot of local knowledge, which was very helpful. The scenery and views are breathtaking and there is a real sense of seclusion, yet very close to nearby towns at Deep Creek Conservation Park.

    Jane2017-10-15T00:00:00Z

    Gemma2017-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • Kathryn and Geoff are terrific and friendly hosts. Easy to communicate and the told us a lot of things of Australia. We were so surprised that Kathryn knew a lot about Chinese culture. The farm house is cozy and beautiful but too many spiders. All in all, I will recommend my feds to stay there if they visit SA.

    A small motel with 12 separate rooms all with their own ensuites. Book 1 or book the lot for your wedding. Units start at $90 a night. 12 units in all. Close to the Second Valley Beach. A great stop over to Kangaroo Island or a great night to stay after a long lunch or romantic dinner at Leonard's Mill Restaurant.
    The units are great to book if you are having a wedding or party. Across the road in walking distance is the award winning Leonard's Mill Restaurant. Brilliant!
    Second Valley is a peaceful place on the way to Kangaroo Island. There are great walks and swimming beaches.
  • Great location, close to Leonard’s Mill and a short trip to the jetty. Was absolutely perfect for a solo fishing trip but the place is very basic. Wouldn’t consider a romantic getaway or family holiday there. It was, however, fine for my needs which was just a place to rest my head in between not catching many fish.

    Andrew2017-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • Was terrific accommodation

    Gaylan2017-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • This venue offers a secluded experience for anyone interested in staying in a coastal and country setting where you can watch kangaroos and birds at dusk. It is the perfect spot for Walking or cycling to the beach for fishing and swimming.

    A short walk from the famous Second Valley jetty and beach, ‘Periwinkles’ is a well-equipped two storey holiday home, with each level self contained and ideal for multiple families or groups. The house sleeps up to 8 adults. Guests need to BYO linen (sheets, towels and tea towels).
    Periwinkles is a two storey holiday home ideal for family and group getaways. With many original 1970s features it will take you back to beach holidays of that era! Sleeping up to 8 adults in 5.5 bedrooms with kitchen, dining, living and bathroom areas upstairs and downstairs, there is room for two families, or children or grandparents to retreat downstairs. Beautiful views, a short walk to SA's best beach, a combustion heater for cosy winter retreats, and table tennis in the shed make it a perfect location to relax and enjoy the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula.
  • Periwinkles is a delightful 'retro' beach house, comfortable, worn in and cosy in the winter. Astonishing views from the balcony and really well set up for two families or multi generations as the bottom half can be pretty much self contained from the upper half. A short walk to the beach and the kios and a slightly longer walk to Leonard's Mill, a great place for that special lunch or meal. We loved our stay at Periwinkle.

    Jane2017-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous views, room to move and very well equipped- great new fridge!

  • We had two young kids and enjoyed our stay over an Autumn weekend. Great location, good views and a relaxing vibe. It reminded me of holidays from my childhood. Plenty of space for larger families and groups.

  • Lovely part of South Australia and a fun place to stay! A good base from which to explore the Peninsula. By the time we'd had several communications with Kathryn, we felt as if we knew her and that continued after our arrival as we had so much in common. Kathryn and Geoff were warm and welcoming and we shared two evenings together. Thanks so much, both of you - and for the birthday present! Hope to see you in the west some day. Cheers, Sandy and Barry

    Sandy2015-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Even though we met Kathryn and her partner for a little time, my husband and I can sure that they are warm-hearted hosts. I can't foget friendly their cats, cozy blankets, full of star - night sky on the hill, and Kathryn's caring texts. Her place is so near to Cape Jervis so very convenient to travel to Kangaroo Island.

    DOOHEE2015-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful place - both Kathryn and Geoff were great hosts and showed us around their property. Met some locals ( kangaroos) and the friendly cat. Really great thanks

    Louise2017-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • " Firstly thanks to Katherine and Geoff to play a perfect host and make our trip a memorable one. Now on the house and the place. The place is picture perfect and you can gaze the sea from the backyard in day time or watch the milky way in the night and chat endlessly with the beautiful host for any thing under the sun. They have their veggie spot and we were lucky to get some mulberries, picked with love and care by Geoff and Kat. Geoff is a wonderful cook i must say and was pretty generous to invite us over dinner. We had endless talks and good food. Mind you this is not a 5 star hotel spot but the place is quite neat and clean and all the necesarry stuff has been provided by owners. Yes this is an off beat locations and would appeal to nature lovers and peace seekers alike. The host are very charming and are always happy to help with a huge smile. There is only one bad part which is leaving the place at the end of the stay with a craving for more. Love you guys and would be sure to come back some day." Gaurav, Kanchan and Jaydeep

  • We have just enjoyed the most relaxing and restful long weekend at Honeysuckle Lodge. The experience far exceeded our expectations. We were greeted by our wonderful hosts Liz & Tom who had made every effort to ensure our comfort.....open log fire lit & a sumptous home cooked dinner awaiting us! The furnishings & decor created an environment that we didnt want to leave. Our hosts were mindful of our privacy yet available if we needed. The gardens & verandah were gorgeous places to enjoy the sunshine & read a good book. We would thoroughly recommend spending time here. We have already booked our next stay!

  • Liz's place is a wonderful retreat from the city in a cool, green valley even in the height of summer. A really charming house with plenty of space to relax, comfortable beds and great kitchen. The pictures don't do it justice! Liz went out of her way to make us feel welcome, wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

  • Honeysuckle Lodge is such a warm home away from home -- we had an absolutely delightful stay -- wish we could have stayed longer! What an absolutely beautiful home and Liz welcomed us like friends -- she had wine/the most delicious figs/cheese/crackers all laid out for us and a fridge/pantry filled with yummy breakfast foods. The rooms were comfy and the bathroom spacious and clean. What a wonderful view as well -- can see the kangaroos come out at night. It was absolutely lovely. Liz was an incredible host -- we accidentally tripped the power during the evening and Liz came by and helped us make breakfast the next morning. It was super sweet!

    Priya2016-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • I couldn't have been made more welcome by Liz, Tom and Dee Dee. As it was already dark, Liz met me at Leonard's Mill to ensure I didn't lose my way. I was greeted by a warm fire and simmering pot of minestrone soup when I arrived at the house. After showing me around, Liz left me to my own devices. The next day, I was invited to a peek of Tom's studio before Liz and I headed off to the Raywood nursery in Deep Creek and a drive around Rapid Bay and Second Valley. Especially loved how green and peaceful the whole area is; spent the mornings of my stay on the verandah, soaking up the view whilst the resident bunnies and I had breakfast. Thank you again, for making Raupo's (he couldn't believe his luck being allowed inside all the time!) and my stay such a memorable one! Bee

    Bee2015-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Liz was an amazing host, we were warmly welcomed on arrival with wine, cheese fresh figs and an assortment of jams and other produce. The location is fantastic for exploring the region and the level of comfort is out standing! All you could want in an ideal setting. The house is full of amazing art and lots of games, magazines, music, comfortable sitting areas and a great kitchen. The Master bed is superb, with a great ensuite to match. Liz went above and beyond of what you would expect from a host and catered for every need, thank you for your generosity!

The house is delightful, very low key and a beautifully relaxing and welcoming vibe. Second Valley is a favourite destination for us and we would love to stay again if opportunity allows.

    Angelique2015-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Another wonderful stay at The Schoolmaster's. Peace and quiet, sitting around the fireplace in the evenings, comfortable beds, and beautiful sunsets. Very relaxing, wonderful place for a writing reatreat.

    Emma2016-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks for a lovely stay

    Joanna2014-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Walking in and seeing the kitchen table with a small vase of flowers and the information book on it was lovely. The 2 main bedrooms looked comfortable and homely. The location of the property is so peaceful and is surrounded with beautiful sweeping hills. We were even welcomed to the property by a cute little bunny rabbit in the driveway.

    Irene2016-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful place with views of hills and ocean. It was comfortable and clean. Our host Victoria was very warm and accommodating. It was a short 10-15min walk to the beach. There was even a Kangaroo in the garden one evening. Inside the house the kitchen was light and airy with a stove and oven (we baked biccies). The open fire in the lounge was delicious on the cooler evenings we had. It was so cosy while we played boardgames and watched movies. The reverse-cycle heaters also helped the chill in the kitchen. I would highly recommend this place for families and friends looking for a week/weekend away!

    Sophia2013-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great escape from everyday life. Good view of the hills and a relaxing place to be. The beach is less than a 5 minute drive away from the property.

    Haylie2014-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at The Schoolmasters. The property is I'd close to the beach with the feel of a grand country house. It's tastefully decorated and well appointed for an extended break. The kids loved the bunk bed room! We loved how relaxed we felt after a couple of days. Highly recommended.

    Fantastic three bedroom apartment perfect for families and groups. Located at Wirrina Cove, just 1hr 15 mins from Adelaide and an easy 12km drive outside of Normanville. A beautiful, peaceful spot with plenty to do and see. Surrounded by stunning scenery and adjoining Marina St Vincent.
    Wake up to spectacular views over Wirrina Golf Course and Gulf St Vincent. Our kitchen is fully stocked with all the utensils you need to whip up meals yourself, but if you don't feel like cooking then it's a gorgeous 15 minute walk (2 minute drive) around to the main resort. Here you can enjoy one of their dining options or just pick up your morning coffee on your way out for the day. The outdoor pool and spa area is open from 1st December til 25th April each year. It has permanent umbrellas for lots of shade; a grassed area; lots of tables & chairs & sun lounges & a gas BBQ. In warmer weather this is probably where you'll be splashing around all day but in cooler weather there is still plenty to keep the kids amused with DVDs, books, toys and board games provided. Evenings can be spent relaxing on the large balcony and watching the kangaroos roam around the neighbouring golf course.
    An excellent base to explore the surrounding area, the town of Normanville is just a 12 minute drive where you will find brilliant cafes and a variety of shops. The lovely beaches of Carrickalinga are only a few kilometres further on and are very popular. For those stopping over on their way to or from Kangaroo Island the departure point of Cape Jervis is only a 20 minute drive away. Golfers will love the proximity to the 18 hole golf course (charges apply). For the boating enthusiast, Marina St Vincent is located just down the hill.
  • Absolutely beautiful place to stay, near to many sightseeing destinations , beautiful views

Would love to book the place again one holiday. It's not that far away from where we need to go for the wedding event. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay in your place

    Armida2016-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great and spacious property with two very large toilets. Very clean and the fully equipped kitchen will go very well with any families. Great pool facilities also. Property is slightly far (10+ Kim's) from the nearest town therefore it would be practicable to have transportation on hand. My children's only complaint was there was no wifi included and the mobile 4G coverage was not strong. The saving grace was there were lots of DVD and board games to keep the children occupied at night.

    Wai2016-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • the location to the surrounding areas in perfect, equal distance from Normanville and Rapid Bay and it's quite a short, scenic drive. A very nice apartment to relax in and it's got a great natural surrounding that is quiet.

  • We stayed two nights at Sandra's place. Absolutely idyllic place amongst the grazing sheep with spectacular views of kangaroo island. Sandra provided all the nice little touches too like a bath for our 3 mth year old son n little warm socks too. Loved the hot outdoor shower also. Highly recommended

    Benjamin2017-05-23T00:00:00Z
  • Sandra and Ian are the consummate hosts - welcoming with attention to homely details. The house is set in a perfect part of the world with a view second to none. This is a place to come and unplug - you can literally watch the nature for hours. We will be back.

    Emily2017-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • My partner & I were looking for a quiet, relaxing weekend getaway when we came across Sandra's Retreat and it absolutely delivered! Sandra made everything a breeze for us and was super lovely to liaise with. The property is breathtaking, with beautiful surroundings and no other sounds than the birds chirping and the cows mooing. Absolute bliss! The only downfall was we wish we stayed longer!

    Susi2016-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • This was exactly the break we needed! After living in the UK for 12 months we were looking for a short get away to get some of the Aussie bush back into our bones, and Sandra's place didn't disappoint!! Located just outside Deep Creek NP, but on a beautifully maintained private plot of land, our stay was so relaxing - waking up to bird song and kangaroos in the distance. It was the perfect combination of luxurious comfort, and rustic bush charm. Id recommend it to everyone!

It's a nice place, just 25 mins drive from Cape Jervis. The house is big with 3 rooms, nice kitchen, living room and balconies. You can see lake, sea and golf course. Views are amazing and surroundings are peaceful & quiet. We enjoyed kangaroos spotting from the balcony everyday. Thanks for letting us stay at this nice place!!

  • We really enjoyed Jim's place. It was super functional, impeccably clean, modern and comfortable. While not too much within walking distance of the Villa, we enjoyed the short, scenic drives to nearby beaches and the wine region. Jim was very responsive and immediately helped us out when we were in a jam.

    Garrick2016-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed 10 nights at this great place. The flate had all we needed and had lots of room for 2 adults and 3 children. The kids had a great time in the fantastic pool, going to the beach nearby and fishing. Shopping is closeby and it is really a nice place to lean back and relax. We can truely recoomend this flat and the communication with Jim was quick and easy. We would come back for sure!

  • I had a very relaxing week staying at seaview wirrina. Jim Had left a lovely platter of local cheeses and produce in the fridge, with a bottle of bubbles and a welcome note in the fridge - which was such a nice touch! The room views are excellent, and there is also a swimming pool in the complex that we had access to - which was great because there is no beach within walking distance. The apartment is conveniently located between Normanville (for shops) and Second Valley - so there are no shortage of beaches nearby to hop in the car and explore. The apartment was exceptionally clean - more like a hotel. And Jim was very easy to communicate with.

    Jessica2016-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place for a vacation, very classy accommodation, as describe on the listing. Jim was very flexible given a very short notice and kind enough to accept our request. Will definitely recommend and go back if given the chance.

    Morella Farm is 100kms from Adelaide, amongst beautiful rolling hills with ocean and landscape views from your patio. Beautiful self-contained homestead offers unique farm style experience. Working farm with many animals on 100 acres of paddocks. Interact with our friendly animals in our new petting zoo or enjoy a picnic amongst our picturesque landscape. Witness visiting native birds and kangaroos. Minutes from fantastic fishing, the famous Kangaroo Island, wine region and Conservation Park.
    This newly renovated homestead, has three large sized bedrooms, two with queen beds and the other with two sets of single bunk beds. Fourth bedroom is detached with two single beds and newly renovated bathroom facilities. This house is spacious and also has an open plan lounge/living space with combustion fire place.
    Morella farm is close to many local attractions. Just 3 minutes along the highway you will get to the town of Cape Jervis. Cape Jervis is the gateway to Kangaroo Island, excellent destination for fishing, sightseeing, Whale watching in the winter months and home of the Sealink Ferry. Nearby there is also the amazing Deep Creek Conservation Park, McLaren Vale wineries, and local golf courses
  • We had a wonderful stay at George's farm house. The communication with George was timely and he was easily accessible by phone. We had a lot of fun feeding the animals, the alpacas were particularly beautiful. The house is located close to Cape Jarvis where we went to watch the sunset. The quiet location at night provided a spectacular view of the stars. House was very comfortable and can accommodate large groups. Well equipped kitchen. And the firewood heater also added to the unique experience. It was a fun way to celebrate our son's first birthday! Thanks again!

    Razlyn2017-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • A home away from home in a serene peaceful sanctuary. The farm is absolutely perfect. We had a stay in October with young children who loved the petting zoo, feeding the animals several times a day. Paddocks to explore, run and tire them out. A large trampoline, swing set, slide and tire swing. The area is so peaceful with gorgeous views of rolling hills. There is no need to go anywhere else during your stay. The house is an older house with modern touches. It was in very clean condition, right to the details of skirting boards and under the beds having no dust. There are several living areas, whilst they aren't separated by walls it allows areas for children to play whilst adults have a conversation. George was great to deal with, very responsive and helpful. He was at the property during our stay and enhanced the experience with many other farm activities. You can see a lot of work has gone into setting up this holiday stay experience and it's all well worth it. Highly recommended.

    My place is close to the Kangaroo Island ferry and Deep Creek National Park. You’ll love my place because of the farm environment and local wildlife.. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets).
  • Great place to have the night especially if you have an early morning ferry or late back from Kangaroo Island and don't want to drive at night. Staff were friendly and room/ensuite was clean and spacious and meal in restaurant was good. The only downside for some might be that the Wi-fi only works in bar/restaurant area.

  • Ralph's place was a great base for us between McLaren Vale and Kangaroo Island. We get the whole downstairs to ourselves and can reach Ralph anytime upstairs, otherwise we're kept to our own devices. The place has what you need for a couple nights stay, including a kitchen with utensils and an extra touch of Netflix! The best part was the soft bed and bed sheets that made for a wonderful night's sleep. We look forward to staying here in the future :-)!

    Emily2017-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Very lovely place with a wonderful view, definitely get your money's worth and Ralph is a lovely host who met us at check in and showed us where everything was, felt very welcome and even thought small it had everything you could need and more with Netflix and Foxtel. The golf course is just walking distance to enjoy a nice meal with prices ranging medium to high and the overall vibe of the place is friendly.

  • Great quiet, clean, tidy place to stay. Not far from beach & shops, cafes etc, but far enough away from the town centres long weekend hustle & bustle.

    Shariece2017-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place, very clean and new. We only stayed for one night but wished we could have stayed longer. The apartment is right on a the golf course with the sea in the background. Ralph is very helpful and friendly. I would recommend this place.

  • A short stay for a wedding in the local area. Australiana at its greatest. Amazing part of the world. Enjoy a few drinks on the deck while viewing the sunset over the water, Kangaroo’s hop past, rolling hills with cattle grazing in the background and the links golf course all in site. Sally was a fantastic host. No complaints

    sam2015-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • The house was over looking the golf course with views to the ocean. The house was as described, bedding comfortable and the kitchen well equipped with everything you need for a weekend away. The beach was only a 20 min walk or short 5 min drive. Sally was flexible with check in and check out times and touched base with us once we arrived to ensure we had everything we needed. We had a great, relaxing weekend away for 4 couples.

  • Amazing location, great views and very comfortable house. Will definitely be back!

    Lexie2017-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely place to stay - easy walk to the golf club and playground. Clean and spacious. Mark was an accommodating host. Will return.

    Helen2017-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Mark's place was modern and spacious, just as described and well-equipped. The location was lovely, with views of the golf course and it's many wildlife residents, and close to the beach and cafes/shops etc in Normanville and Second Valley. A great spot to relax just a short drive from Adelaide!

    Tegan2016-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • The house was clean and tidy and had all the amenities we needed. Mark always responded quickly and was very organised. The house is in a great location with a great view. Would reccomend staying here. :)

    Jade2017-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • The house was exactly as described and much much more! The view from the front and back balcony were amazing. The house itself was well equipped and had lots of entertainment. Would definitely consider staying here again.

    Bao2016-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great place in an awesome location! will be back for sure

    Bridget & Ahmed2017-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • A great home with plenty of extras to keep the family entertained. The Wii and pool table were a hit when the weather wasn't all that forgiving, and the short distance to the beach and short drive to Second Valley provided welcome respite when it was! Would certainly come back again.

    Michelle2017-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • The stay at Mark's home was great! Nic and quiet and well equipped amenities. We only had one small issue which was the dvd player didn't seem to work. But no big deal, the stay was still great without it.

    Right next to one of South Australia's best Golf courses, only minutes from the beach. The ideal base to see the best of the Fleurieu Penisula and Kangaroo Island or simply relax around the pool. Be it wine, beaches, golf, fishing or just relaxing it is all here.
    Walk amongst the Kangaroos on the golf course or take a walk to the Peninsular Hotel and watch the sun set from the balcony.
  • Very accommodating with fantastic communication from the hosts. Can't thank them enough for an enjoyable and comfortable stay. Would highly recommend. We will definitely be back again in the near future.

  • Melinda was a wonderful host with very prompted communication. We loved staying her house and would love to stay again. Everyone commented how comfy the beds and bedding were. BBQ worked a treat for our Christmas turkey and I loved the coffee machine!! The views and sunsets from the top balcony we enjoyed too. It was so nice that we could bring our 2 dogs too. Cheers Michelle

    Michelle 2016-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. One of 40 or so "little houses" on the golf course. Great for a secluded romantic get away or a family trip. Quality restaurant on the street at golf club. Defiantly would recommend.

    Campbell2016-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Good place to stay with magnificent views over the Lady Bay golfcourse with many roos

    Gudrun2016-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • This property is absolutely gorgeous with beautiful views of the golf course. We thoroughly enjoyed watching the wildlife and world go by as we sat on the deck. Highly recommended! Thank you to Melinda and the Petlet team for outstanding service. We look forward to staying at more Petlet properties.

    Lauren2017-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • This holiday home was so lovely! It has such lovely decor and was very comfortable. We loved having our fur baby with us. There are lots of pet friendly cafes and restaurants around the area (we went to One Little Sister, Caffe On Bungala & Normanville Cafe & Kiosk) the locals are really lovely, there's lots to see and do. Great area for families!

    Dana2017-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Anyone looking for a weekend getaway with friends, family and pets will love this place. Secluded enough, but close enough to neighboring smaller towns like Normanville and Yankalilla. For people interested in golf it overlooks the course, which also has a number of kangaroos to watch all day. Perfect way to get away without going too far.

  • Perfect place for a relaxing getaway the place is fantastic there was so much for the kids to do they loved the bikes and the giant cards We will definitely be back the horse riding on the beach was a huge hit

    Jodie2017-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Karen's place was very nice, the open space was great for our family and there weren't many people around so it was very quiet. The gated community style was great for safety of our kids and the communal pool was perfect depth for my two little ones. A very nice grassed area and palyground as well. A couple of little touch ups and some TLC to the house wouldn't go astray but we would definately stay here again.
