“A great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We were absolutely delighted with our recent stay at Austiny B&B. Very friendly hosts, comfortable and clean accommodation and a first class breakfast served on the terrace with wonderful views across the garden and surrounding landscape. Only a few minutes out of Victor Harbour yet very peaceful and relaxing with some wonderful wildlife literally on the doorstep!

Room Tip: There is only one room for guests, which makes it very special.

Thank you for this very positiv review of our B & B. It makes us feel very proud, that you enjoyed this special place as we do. Breakfast served on our veranda ( in cooler weather enclosed) gives the opportunity to experience our beautiful views and birdlife from up close. Rural and peaceful surroundings, but still all facilities you need are just around the corner.
Looking forward to seeing you again in Australia.

I found my stay at the Austiny Bed and Breakfast quite a unique but very enjoyable and relaxing experience. Having never stayed in a bed and breakfast type accommodation before, I was a little unsure as to the privacy I would be given. Petra and Jeffrey are a lovely, friendly couple and quite happy for a chat, but unless you are arriving, leaving or being served breakfast, you would not even know they are there - absolutely perfect for me as I do like my privacy.

The quality of the room, breakfast and scenery (both from the bedroom and the pergola where your breakfast is served) are all outstanding. I have stayed on two occasions now, once in the cooler weather and once in the warmer weather, and the pergola has cafe blinds which are down for protection in the cooler months and up in the warmer months. The blinds (and the whole pergola area and room) are so prinstinely clean that you would not even know they are there. The bird life is also amazing, I lost count of how many species I saw whilst enjoying my breakfast, and they come right up to the edge of the pergola, my favourite were the little blue wrens.

I would highly recommend the Austiny Bed and Breakfast for any type of trip you may be planning, most relaxing and amazing scenery.

The view from the bedroom window and the birds are just magic. We loved the peace and quiet and the blue wren entertainment over breakfast. Petra and Jeffrey provide a wonderful environment to relax and unwind and enjoy the view. This was a return visit and we plan to enjoy several more little breaks at Austiny. Thanks Petra and Jeffrey, you are wonderful hosts.

We are glad that you once again had a wonderful break at Austiny B & B. We will make sure your next visit will be as enjoyable. We can't promise the blue wrens over breakfast, but indeed, they are around quiet often these days, as are a lot of different birds all year round.
Thanks for taking the time writing this lovely review. We are looking forward to your next visit.

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.
