�Exceeding Our Expectations�!
From the moment we made our booking through to our
wonderful holiday at Beachcomber, Port Elliot, our expectations were more than
Owners of Encounter Holiday Rentals, Wendy and Philip, were an absolute delight - friendly, caring and clearly passionate
about their holiday rentals. Wendys
experience with guests requirements quickly allowed her to assess mine and she
recommended the ideal house for us at Horseshoe Bay, Port Elliot. Helpful documentation all the way through
answered every query and Philip was always as close as a phone call away should
help be needed.
The highlight was to open the door of this delightful two
storey house and find it spotlessly clean, fluffy white towels, quality linen,
sets of crockery and saucepans, (none chipped or scratched) and everything in
top working order eg TV and DVD Players (yes - upstairs as well as downstairs),
air-con, overhead fans, toaster, jug, games/Videos for that rainy day we didnt
have etc. They had thought of everything
- helpful compendiums of inventory and guidance for all equipment in the house.
There was nothing to do except unpack (loads of cupboard
space/hangers) and enjoy the tranquillity of the blue/green interior decor which
mirrored the azure sea across the road beckoning us for a swim. Topped off with breakfast on the balcony
watching the sunrise over the ocean, glorious clifftop walks, great places to
eat just minutes away and shopping for unique Christmas gifts in Port Elliot
and close by Victor Harbour and Goolwa - and the weekend markets too - what a
Thank you Wendy and Philip for a truly fabulous stay and
your thoughtful follow up correspondence on our return - we look forward to
returning next year.
PS One recommendation to potential guests -
bring your binoculars - the ocean is alive with fascinating things to watch
from the balcony - dolphins, schools of fish and whales when migrating. Sylvia and Guests SA.
” This is THE place to stay in Port Elliot!
Port Elliot Beachcomber was a superb place to stay.
Wendy and Phillip are exceptional hosts. The location is opposite Horseshoe
Bay, just a walk across the street and you are there. The water views from the
verandah at the Beachcomber are even better than in the photos show. The
accommodation itself was very clean, tidy and comfortable. Even if the weather
turns to rain, you can still sit on the verandah and just watch the waves roll
in. 100% happy with everything. There was nothing to fault with my stay
at Port Elliot Beachcomber”. Raimunda, Australia.
Stunning property with
excellent views ★★★★★
is a fantastic house with super location overlooking Horseshoe bay. It is very
well maintained with everything you could need for your stay. perfect for two
couples with 2 bathrooms one upstairs and one down, also third bedroom so
comfortably sleeps 6. We hope to stay again.
I would recommend Beachcomber, it is perfectly situated close to centre of Port
Elliot as well as the beach. The bakery is great too !! Maureen SA.
Dear Philip Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your superb property, Beachcomber, it was very enjoyable and so pleasant to go to a place so clean and well presented. You present your properties to a very high standard which is appreciated. Thank you regards Graham. SA.
Dear Philip and Wendy Enjoyed our stay at Beachcomber immensely. Accommodation was excellent, service was faultless. Highly recommended. rating 5/5 Many Thanks Phillip T . SA.
Dear Wendy We had a fantastic time in Port Elliot, loved Beachcomber, will be recommending it to our friends and will be back sometime. We were particularly impressed with the condition and quality of everything in the house - how rare to find a beach house with good quality, sharp knives! The little things sometimes make the best impressions. Thanks again. We look forward to our next visit and will ensure that we book early. Jamie, Melbourne Vic.
OMG! Can't believe our eyes! We planned the day to go whale watching (with amazement and delight), when having breakfast on the balcony at Beachcomber , there in the Bay were two whales! We watched them for a while "Fantastic" (and we didn't have to go far). We loved the house and loved the area, we plan to return one day. The Green family x 5.
