Convenient to Adelaide Oval, the Entertainment Ctr, Hindmarsh Stadium and Adelaide Aquatic Ctr.
Private-access, detached. Located in a near-city progressive suburb, close to coffee shops and eateries.

The space
'The Box' is a cosy (6m x 3m total area including en suite) independent space that sits at the rear of the main home and was originally used as athlete accommodation at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games.

The room features a DVD player (please note the location of The Box is in a 'dead zone' and as such is unable to receive free-to-air TV, however, there are a number of DVD's available for you to borrow.

Your room also contains a small fridge, a microwave and kettle and tea/coffee making requirements. (Please note other than those required for beverages I do not provide crockery or cutlery. If you require these, disposable items may be bought at the local supermarket).

Additionally, and possibly most importantly, there is a reverse cycle air conditioner in the room to help beat the Adelaide heat during summer, and provide a warm haven during our chilly winters.

Guest access
*** Unfortunately, my space may not be suitable for all as there are three steps to navigate to access it ***

There is independent access to your room via the gates at the rear of the house. Feel free to come and go as you wish without fear of disturbing your hosts.

Although there is no parking available on the premises for guests, there are off-street parking bays available directly across the road from my property.

Please provide an ETA when booking so that arrangements can be made for your arrival.

Other things to note
We have pets on the premises.
I am happy to confirm pets (small surcharge applies), but they MUST be child- and small animal-friendly and they MUST have their own bedding. Please email me before booking to discuss your potential booking if you are bringing your pet/s. Please DO NOT make use of the instant book feature if you are planning on bringing your pet/s.

$5 per load. First load free for stays of 7 days or more.

Location

Bowden, South Australia, Australia

Situated in vibrant, inner-western suburb with a number of cafes and restaurants nearby. The lovely park across the road offers a quiet green space to relax or enjoy a picnic or barbecue (electric and FREE). The Entertainment Centre, and 'The Gov' (an iconic live band pub, for those who don't know) are approximately 1.2km from my front door, so perfect for those coming over for concerts or gigs.

During your stay
If I don't get to meet you on arrival, I will try to catch you at some point in time, just to say g'day and to make sure you're comfortable and don't have any questions.
I live on the premises with my beautiful 9-year-old son. Feel free to chat if you have the time/inclination. Tucker and I will give you your privacy unless you seek us out (well I will, but I can't make promises for the child as he's a very sociable young fellow :-) )
