“Blue wrens at breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

A very enjoyable 4 nights stay for my stint as a survey interviewer in the Victor region. Petra and Jeff great hosts. Loved the views, the wildlife and the birdlife, including blue wrens hopping about one's feet at breakfast! And no vehicle noise or city lights.
The property management is exemplary, with only rainwater yet flourishing well-selected plants.
Both Petra and Jeff are also involved with the Victor community. They also have interesting travel tales and comparisons with their experiences in Europe.
South Victor towards the Bluff is the closest settlement, with 2 reasonable cafes and a general store. A quieter section of Victor.

Thank you for this lovely review of our B & B. We are very pleased, you enjoyed your stay that much. You've even been so lucky to see the young Blue Wrens, that are still all over the place. Yes, you could tell, we love Victor Harbor and it's surroundings and are always happy to share. We hope you will come back some day to spend a holiday instead of work.

We stayed here over 6 months ago and we still talk about how wonderful it is. We stayed here for my husband's birthday and were treated wonderfully, including birthday chocolates and a card which we thought was so lovely! Jeff and Petra are fantastic, very welcoming and friendly. We are familiar with the area and just wanted somewhere where we could relax and it was exactly what we wanted. The room was spacious and clean and felt luxurious with the small chandelier and DVD player and plenty of DVDs. The view is amazing even though the weather wasn't great when we were there. Breakfast was fantastic, plenty of options and definitely enough to fill you up. We hope to stay again soon!

We stayed at Austiny for one night as a romantic weekend getaway from the hustle & bustle of our busy lives. Petra and Jeff are terrific hosts and make you feel very welcome. The room was lovely and clean and they thought of everything one could possibly need to make your stay more comfortable and enjoyable.
I agree with previous reviews that the continental breakfast was amazing, and in a lovely setting with beautiful views.
I must admit I was expecting something totally different for our romantic weekend away - be aware that the lovely room is actually part of Petra and Jeff's home that is partitioned off, and entry is through their laundry, so it did feel a little like we were 'house guests' rather than independant travellers.

Thank you for your lovely comments. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and that you appreciated our facilities and hospitality. We always strive to make our guests feel very much at home. Austiny B & B, being a homestay, gives our guests the opportunity to interact with us, if they wish, and get as much information and inside tips to make the most of their stay on the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula.
The separate entrance gives our guest the convenience of privacy.

Petra and Jeff are great hosts and the location is beautiful set in stunning hillside views. The room was nice, with a good bathroom and Petra kindly had the heater on for our arrival - so the room was lovely and warm (it was winter).

Agree with previous reviews - the continental breakfast is a highlight. Lots of yummy food and set in the verandah looking out over the fabulous view.

Petra and Jeff are wonderful hosts: very welcoming and provided great tips on sightseeing in the Fleurieu Peninsula. The room is very comfortable, with stunning valley views. The breakfast was also a highlight - not just for the range of food provided but that it was set in an enclosed verandah overlooking the beautiful valley.

We stayed at Austiny B&B for 3 nights where we were looked after very well in excellent room with good ensuite facilities kept beautifully clean. A lovely view from the window onto tranquil garden and surrounding countryside. At the end of our busy day, we very much enjoyed sitting on the veraanda just outside our room enjoying the colouful birdlife that flitted in and around the garden. Breakfast was always very enjoyable and delicious sitting outside on the veranda. Petra and Jeffrey were very welcoming and helpful hosts with good suggestions of how we might make the most of our stay in the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula and supplying us with tourist maps and directions. We are very pleased that we managed 3 nights here in our busy trip to Australia. Highly recommended accomodation and region. M & P Surrey, England

We have stayed at the Austiny Bed and Breakfast for one night in December 2011. From the moment we arrived Petra and Jeff made us feel very welcome in this fantastic, tranquil property surrounded by nature. The views are spectacular, overlooking beautifully maintained property. Room is spacious, nicely decorated and furnished. Delicious breakfast was served on elegant veranda by very attentive hosts.

During our SA holiday we have lodged in many places, yours is very special. Thank you. (B & A Melbourne)

Room Tip: Consider staying for longer than one night
