We had a lovely and relaxing weekend. It was a stylish & well equipped space with everything we could have needed for an amazing winter weekend away. The views were stunning and the fireplace made it so cozy. We were lucky that nobody was staying in the apartments next door which we think made it even more peaceful and private.


This is a great place. The views are amazing and the space is excellent. Upon arrival, Simon met us there and introduced us to the space. Not only that, he also called up a really neat Pizza place (Little Sister) and made our reservations – excellent host. The house itself is very well maintained and clean. My wife and I are very picky about cleanliness and we couldn’t find any flaws at all. The kitchen is well stocked and has everything that you could possibly need to cook a meal for two. The entire house is well lit with natural light during the day and quite big for 2 people. The views from this place are stunning. I don’t want to describe them here, you really need to experience these to enjoy them.


A 5 star experience! The perfect place to retreat and get away! Hosts are super friendly and attentive, makes for the perfect trip.


A beautiful quiet relaxing retreat only an hour from Adelaide. Fabulous views. Generous hosts. Lovely fireplace. Would highly recommend for a weekend getaway. Loved it!


What a magnificent location! Such a beautifully presented apartment, lovely little details to make the stay very comfortable. A perfect winters weekend away with the wood fire, amazing views across the hills, wine & yummy local goodies to eat. A real little gem! Simon & Laura were great hosts, very welcoming and friendly. We would love to stay again.


Beautiful location & amazing property! Would recommend to anyone looking for a luxurious trip away! Simon & Laura were incredibly generous & kind hosts.


The place is absolutely stunning! Amazing views down the hills to the ocean, tranquil setting for some time to relax and getaway. Gorgeous decor and the layout is so open and yet functional. Complimentary wine and cheese went down very well! It’s a short drive to Carrackalinga and Normanville, but the tranquility is well worth the location. Plenty to do and see nearby and the local beaches are crystal clear. The hosts are more than happy to offer suggestions for places to visit and eat too. Absolutely great hospitality, they made us feel really welcome – an absolute must for this area and we’ll definitely be coming back soon!


Simon is a great host. Place was so lovely. Perfect for an escape from life for a few days to unwind. Close enough to go into town if wanted but by bringing own food meant a real escape as kitchen facilities fantastic. Amazing views too add to it all.


Simon’s Place was a quiet little comfortable retreat, with amazing views, in a fantastic location with plenty to explore within the local area. Simon’s communication was second to none and his tips for eating out within the local region were on point. My husband Justin and I were only at Simon’s place for a quick getaway from the kids (we live close to Adelaide so not too far away) and it was the perfect environment for what we were looking for. I would certainly recommend Simon’s place to other couples looking for a break away from the rat race.


Breathtaking views. Amazing host. Great place for couples, families and friends to plan vacations/ weekends. I would love to take my friends and spend at least a week at Simon’s place. Perfect place for those visiting Adelaide/ South Australia and get a taste of what this beautiful country is all about. Thank you Laura and Simon. We will be back. Soon. And again.
