Great Location -
We enjoyed our stay, quiet convenient location. Narrow access to
room, down side of house. Could do with a kitchen sink & bench area.
TV could be updated. Close to the city and Morialta Falls for hikes
or walks.Close to takeaways and shops. Kerry - September 2017.
Excellent and Homely !
This is a great property in a great location in Adelaide,
particularly if you are a single traveler working in the vicinity of
the CBD. It has all the necessary amenities including Microwave,
ironing, TV and air-conditioning and not to mention a very
comfortable double bed and adjoining swimming pool. I was in
Adelaide for a new job opportunity and was very conscientious about
finding suitable accommodation particularly in the first few months,
in order to make my transition to Adelaide and the new role as
smooth as possible. Neil’s property more than met my needs, being
situated in a quiet area only 20-30 min drive from Mile End where I
worked. The room adjoins the main house, and the large open
room/living area, and it's authentic character with an impressive
collection of books and included WIFI made me feel right at home.
Neil’s family were very welcoming and met any needs I had, and Neil
was always a phone call away. I also had the pleasure of staying at
two of Neil’s other properties, both on my own and once with my
young family. Similarly, they were both great, both in terms of
location and all the amenities that were included. I have to mention
that all of Neil’s properties have a charming character and a very
homely feeling, which I found very appealing. They were also very
well maintained. Neil and his family are very friendly and
accommodating people. Neil was very patient and corporative in
accommodating my rather “clumsly” booking timetable, during a rather
difficult time for me and my family during which I flew in and out
of Sydney for work, whilst staying at various locations in Adelaide.
Neil also went out of is way to invite me and my family to join them
for a local function, and was always available for chat to share
ideas, including places to see and job opportunities for my wife.
All in all, the stay with Neil and his family made our time at
Adelaide all the more enjoyable! (-Stayz)
Dakshita, August 2016.
My niece and I initially looked at booking the ensuite room but Neil
kindly offered the larger house when I mentioned that we wanted
separate bedrooms and a bit more space. We had a pleasant 3 weeks
and the house was close to everything - shops, public transport and
restaurants. It was also a nice and safe neighborhood to walk around
in. Neil was always available to attend to anything we needed and we
appreciated the prompt attention to fixing the wifi problem (he put
in a new router), providing an additional heater when the nights
grew particularly cold, and a lend of his printer and scanner for
some urgent documents. Sophia, Tanzania, May 2017 (Airbnb)
Lovely place that met more than what I required! The host couldn't
accomodate my booking and then provided me with an even better place
to stay at the same rate. Host was very friendly. Bredette,

Neil and Annalynn were absolutely accommodating and would go out of
their way to ensure that our stay there was pleasant! We actually
rented the 3 bedroom house that they owned, and it was definitely a
solid holiday home with tons of space and was fully equipped with
everything you would ever need (from toiletries, bed sheets, TV, air
conditioning, breakfast, snacks and almost everything in between).
It's in a really peaceful neighbourhood so it's great for anyone who
needs some R&R, plus it's close to the city and supermarkets as
well. Would definitely recommend this place for anyone who is
looking for a good place at a decent price! Thanks Neil and
Annalynn! Damien, Melbourne, Vic. October 2014

Visited Monarto Zoo, Henley Beach, Handorf, Barossa Valley, and more

Great place to spend a few days getting to know Adelaide and the
surrounding area. Neil and Annalynn were friendly and made checking
in and out a very relaxing process. We stayed in their other 3
bedroom house and they also provided a few goodies in the kitchen
which was a lovely touch. It's in a quiet street so noise was not an
issue at all. Definitely a positive airbnb experience. Thanks!

Wine regions - McLaren Vale & Adelaide Hills. The hills is a very
picturesque area. Also enjoyed the Botanic gardens. Could have

- stayed for six nights.
Neil and Annalynn were extremely helpful especially during the 20+
hour power outage. Neil gave a lift into Adelaide on his way to work
to ensure we made our tour start time. We were able to book a taxi
to the airport from Neil and Annalynns house. The apartment was
great and Neil and Annalynn were the perfect hosts.
Dougie, Greennock, UK, September 2013.
When Dougie and Janice arrived in Adelaide, the temperature was over
40 degrees Centigrade. The next day, the temperature cooled to a
beautiful pleasant day, however that night Adelaide had a once in 60
year wind storm. Dougie and Janice stayed in the three bedroom house
we have beside our house. A 10m three across the road from their
house got up rooted, and we, as well as 90 thousand household in
Adelaide lost electrical power for over 20 hours due this fallen
electrical lines, and other damaged caused by the storm. I suggest
Dougie and Janice had a bit of an adventurous stay in Adelaide, and
they handled these disruptions in their stride. They were
understanding, and basically the perfect guests. They left the house
very clean, and there were no issues. All was good with their stay.
Likes: Loved the house! Great location, loved the use of the pool.
Good TV. Great washing machine. The little extras such as sauces
etc in fridge were a nice touch. Also washing powder, books, info,
etc. Very much appreciated. Thanks Neil. We enjoyed our stay.
