My husband and I rented Thorn Park in the City for 3 weeks while we visited family and friends. It really is a delightful property.
Brilliant location just steps from Chianti Classico ( best Italian restaurant in Adelaide ) and its sibling, Bar Torino, plus a plethora of other daytime cafes and a supermarket, pharmacy, post office etc.
About 100 metres walk down to Hutt Street is the free City Connector Bus which operates a loop into the city via North Terrace, in proximity to the East End entertainment precinct, Art Gallery, Museum, Adelaide Oval, Rundle Mall shops, Peel and Leigh Street bars and restaurants and then operates down Grote Street to the Central Market (which in my view is Adelaide's No1 tourist attraction!)
The immaculately clean downstairs area has everything you could want from a comfortable lounge area with TV and Ipod Dock, a well equipped kitchen with a very generous supply of pantry goods (spices, oils, magimix, platters and bowls), separate dining area with room for 4-6 dinner guests around the table, a gorgeous patio area outside with bbq, table and umbrella, laundry and a separate loo.
Up the not-very-steep stairs you will find a very nice bathroom with shower, separate loo, a bedroom with heaps of storage space in the wardrobe and also a study which could sleep another person.
There is also a private carport which was initially a bit of a squeeze to park our 4WD but after a few days and a bit of practice we were perfectly used to it.
Thank you, David, for a fabulous 3 weeks. You have been most helpful and always available to answer our queries. We certainly were able to live like locals. I would certainly recommend "Thorn Park in the City" to anyone who wants a comfortable pad near the centre of town, especially anyone visiting from overseas who enjoys their home comforts.
