The Guesthouse has recently been styled to provide accommodation for people who appreciate quality.

The Guesthouse is located in the leafy eastern suburbs of Adelaide and is only 1 km from the City. Walk into the City via a beautiful walk way lined with 150 year old gum trees, colonial olive orchards and some of the most lovely scenery in Adelaide. The Adelaide Botanic Gardens, Rundle Street and the North Terrace Cultural Precinct is a comfortable 30 minute walk.

Closeby to The Guesthouse is a bakery, supermarket, clothes stores, hair dresser, bottleshop, hotel and some very nice restaurants - all within a 10 minute walk. The historically-listed Eastwood Village has all that you need to make your stay in Adelaide fun and easy.

The Guesthouse is fully equipped with kitchen and laundry facilities, and provides a stylish and relaxed environment. The beds (one queen and a single) are comfortable and the property is fully airconditioned/ heated. The place has some beautiful classic and original retro features - including decorative ceilings and 1970's French caustic-style tiles.

The property also has a small courtyard to view the plentiful supply of birds that visit from the adjacent Parklands and a barbeque for relaxed meals.

We welcome small dogs who are well behaved - but consult with us for full details. Typically, the cost is an additional $35 per dog per day - maximum 2 dogs. This policy ensures the highest standard of Dog Friendly acoommodation. There is a good sized park across the road which is fully fenced and welcomes your pooch. There is also a large off-leash dog park around 5 minutes walk from the property. Adelaide is very dog friendly and most restaurants with outdoor seating will welcome you.

The Guesthouse is ideally located to take advantage of the Clipsal 500, Tour DownUnder, Fringe Garden and the Horse Trials. All of these events are an easy walk.

We hope to welcome you soon!

Marty is such a good host and the house is beautiful, convenient and very well kept. Will definitely stay here again.5/5 by , Eastwood, NSW
We enjoyed our week long family stay at The Guesthouse. Lovely home that is perfect for holiday and convenient location. The owner has made the place comfortable and relaxing. It was clear to us that the owner loves and wants to share the home, and it's not just a business. Everything has been well thought of, and everything we needed were there. Highly recommended for holiday in Adelaide.5/5 by ,
The provisions were well above expectation. The property was perfect for our purposes, Martin was exemplary with service, friendliness, follow up and genuine care about the comfort of our stay and that we had everything that may be required. The only thing I would mention for people who may struggle, is the step down into the kitchen and step onto the verandah and into the hall. No problem for most.4/5 by ,
We had a wonderful stay in Adelaide at The Guesthouse. A charming and centrally located cottage in good order and well equipped for a comfortable stay. Martin the owner was excellent to deal with. Prompt, caring and considerate. I would thoroughly recommend this property.4/5 by ,
We stayed for a week at the Guesthouse and immediately felt at home. The cottage was very comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. It was our first visit to Adelaide and the location proved to be fantastic. After long days traveling around it was always a pleasure to return to the cottage. Booking and organising our stay with Martin was very easy and he also met us on arrival.We would certainly use The Guesthouse when visiting Adelaide again.5/5 by ,

We were looking for accommodation that would suit my 76 year old mother, specifically a walk in shower and car space - The Guesthouse not only provided these, but also a 'home away from home' during our one week stay. The cottage is comfortable, clean, tastefully decorated, and well equipped, close to the city centre, but with easy access to the Adelaide Hills and beaches. Martin is very welcoming and provided information re the local eateries and supermarkets, a parking permit for our hire car and additional information on request. It was lovely to come home after a long day sightseeing and relax in the outdoor courtyard and listen to the lorikeets. If you are planning a trip to Adelaide, Mum and I would recommend The Guesthouse for your stay.5/5 by ,
We loved the decor of the cottage and excellent facilities for three. The beds are comfortable with quality linen and towels. The location is ideal for easy access into the city, beach and hills. It is a quiet area with shopping and cafes nearby. The only issue for one of us with a mobility disability was the deep step into kitchen and hence the bathroom facilities. While she managed it, it was a struggle. Otherwise we all enjoyed our stay and Martin's hospitality.5/5 by ,
