Introduction

We provide an exceptionally quiet, comfortable, eclectic and picturesque, b&b in the Adelaide ("Tuscan") Hills. Our two storey sandstone home has lots of light and is settled in a beautiful one half acre garden where you can sit, walk, rest and recover. It is cooler here than on the Adelaide plains.

Rooms

We have two separate rooms listed in Airbnb. This listing is for Blue Wren. This east facing bedroom is the most even temperatured room in the house. It is downstairs, opposite the bathroom. It is very spacious and has views over the front garden. It has an over head fan, fly screens, queen size bed, with electric blanket, and a room heater.

Bathroom

There is a large bathroom opposite this room with bath, large shower cubicle and toilet. Bathroom essentials and a hair dryer are provided. There is another extra separate toilet. These are shared facilities.

Breakfast

We serve breakfast in the breakfast room. It consists of a choice of cereals, fruit in season, home made yoghurt, toast, home made jams, variety of teas and real coffee. If you choose, we can breakfast with you and chat.
Let us know if you have special dietary requirements.
You can make a cup of tea/coffee any time in the kitchen. Otherwise, the kitchen is not available.

Four eating places are a 4 minutes walk away, and, another five are a 4 minutes drive away.

Atención a los huéspedes

One guest wrote: " So much more than accommodation". We love to interact with guests and talk about our wonderful world famous city and find out about you.

Otros aspectos destacables

We have a Bushfire Survival Plan which we implement on "severe, extreme and catastrophic" fire danger days. We will give you details on such days at breakfast.
Adelaide has a dry climate and temperatures can be extreme. Winters are wet but piercingly cold, so clothing layers, gloves, scarf and hat are needed. Summer is hot and dry so body cream, lots of drinking water and sun hat are recommended.

Les & Ruth are the consummate hosts . Their home is truly a piece of Paradise, everything immaculate and yet welcoming. We looked forward to breakfast every morning which was always beautifully presented accompanied by a lively conversation. They both have a wonderful sense of humour, they were also very helpful in guiding us to the best places to visit. The overall result was us not wanting to leave when it was time to go. Anyone fortunate enough to stay there will enjoy city views from a secluded balcony in a beautiful garden along with the handsome Henry, a splendid cat who rules over all he sees. Our advice is - don't miss an opportunity to stay here.

If you want a wonderful setting with a panoramic view of the city, this is the place. If you want a nice comfortable room and immediate access to a bathroom - this is the place. If you want breakfast by the host this is the place. If you like thoughtful and friendly hosts this is the place. Within walking distance there is public transportation and some restaurants. Within a mile there are many shops, restaurants, dry leaning, gyms etc. To get to the city center, the beach or the airport takes about 20 minutes by car and say 45 minutes to an hour by bus or train. Finally you can walk/run to Belair Park about 1/2 mile away which is Australia's first National Park. One thing to note is that this is more like a regular B&B so you don't have kitchen access to cook dinner or laundry. All in all this is a better place than any hotel especially if you rent a car.

Les and Ruth are very kind and welcoming hosts. I had the pleasure of spending a weekend in their charming home, which is nestled in amongst the surrounding gardens. Each morning, breakfast and thoughtful conversation were provided, both of which I was very grateful for! Thank you Les and Ruth for the very enjoyable stay!

Lee's beautiful home overlooks the city of Adelaide. It is serene there in every sense of the word. Close to beautiful walks (which unfortunately didn't have time to do though!) & eateries. Les and Ruth are beautiful people.

We love our home, the surrounding bush and our Victorian city.
We are keen gardeners, presently planting mediteranean type-plants in our 1/2 acre garden.
