This is such a beautiful building in the best location in Pt Elliot. I'm from Adelaide and have stayed a here few times now. Gorgeous views from the balcony, clean, nicely renovated and friendly staff. I really think it's the best place to stay on the Fleurieu.

This place in a little hidden gem and would make a perfect stop if your are travelling the area between Melbourne and Adelaide or are on your way to Kangaroo Island! The owners (and their dog) are standing by, taking care of you and everything else for that matter with a smile and even though everything is well sorted, clean... More

A really lovely hostel in a beautiful location. It is extremely well run and looked after. It has the best kitchen I can ever remember in a hostel. Rooms are smallish but the common areas are large and the views from the front balcony are magically - don't miss moonrise (or sunrise if you are up that early). Recommended.

Firstly, I'd like to say that I don't often stay in hostels, because, as everyone is aware, there are some really awful establishments out there, and I now feel that I'm too old (just) and easily agitated to risk losing a full night's sleep. Even if it is on top of 3 bottles of wine... anyway, to the review: Myself... More

This is a lovely guest house perched on the edge of a cliff at the end of a quiet street. It's clean, quiet, has good amenities, great views over Horseshoe Bay, friendly reception/managerial staff.. even down to the vases of fresh flowers on the tables in the dining area, this place is more like a gorgeous home than a hostel/guest...

I can't rave enough about this place! I run an adult ballroom dancing school in Adelaide and I recently organised a Winter Weekend away in the beautiful town of Port Elliot. We hired the whole Beach House as a group and spent the weekend visiting wineries, dancing at the local hotel and whale watching. The hostel is clean, modern, spacious,... More
