The cottage is located on a quiet street with views of the Hills. There is a sixty year old cotton palm in the backyard which is a bit of a landmark in Dernancourt it can be seen from miles around,hence the name.

The cottage has been in the same family for over 70 years -it was originally built in the 1930s and is one of the few original homes in Dernancourt. It has certainly seen a lot of change from farming cattle on the hill and celery-growing where Coles is now!

Over the years there have been changes made to the homestead - the most recent a full renovation, brand new kitchen, laundry and updated bathroom, polished floors and ducted air-conditioning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rhonda - Home away from home This house has been beautifully restored and has everything you need for a perfect holiday. 150 meters to bus to city that runs every half hour and 150 meters to Coles and other shops. We stayed here for 8 nights and could have stayed longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Duncan - Perfect little place to base ourselves for the Tour Down Under and subsequent Tour de Barossa.All the little things and welcoming pack made the stay a whole lot easier. Easy walk to the shops but the real appeal is the shade on the property and lying on the grass in the afternoon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ann - One of the best things about the cottage is getting away from the noise and hustle of the city, to be able to sit outside listening to the birds while reading. Absolutley LOVED the cottage! Sarah you're the best! Take bus 556/557 to town within 20 mins - very easy to get around. An 8 mins walk to the mall - great produce shop just up from Coles. You won't be disappointed, best decision we made for accommondation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bronwyn - Everything was as described and then some; there were extra provisions in the fridge and loads of other helpful touches, from the tourist brochures to the street directory, fantastic clothes drying area and the chockies on the bench. Perfectly situated - not far from the centre of Adelaide, but also convenient to the major roads that lead out to other places of interest. Convenient to local shops and service station. Quiet location. Charming decorative touches that added to the subtle retro flavour. Had a marvellous time and it was a pleasure to come home at the end of each day.
