A Delightful Stay at Beachcomber

A fantastic location, with delightful sea views from the balcony, which was perfectly shaded from lunch-time onwards (a relief during the hot summer afternoons). Very clean and user friendly. Great for our situation, with a mature-aged couple upstairs and my family fitting comfortably downstairs.

It was really lovely having our own private space, which included two bedrooms (one with two single beds), our own lounge room and a large bathroom with a shower and bath. With us visiting the beach every day, the spacious downstairs laundry was a great bonus too. The large upstairs dining table was perfect when we came together for meals and the kitchen was a really good size, with all of the amenities you could possibly need, including plenty of cupboard space, a full-sized fridge, oven and microwave.

Stayed at Beachcomber

Everything sparkling clean, the view of the sea from the balcony and the sofa was perfect. Everything one might need in the kitchen, very comfortable bed and an easy walk to the beach.

The house is also a short and pretty walk to the shops and hotels in Port Elliot.  We will definitely be returning soon.



A relaxing stay at Beachcomber!

Needed a weekend away late December and could not have asked for a better place to spend some time off! The location could not be any more perfect – a mere 5-minute walk and you’ll find yourself at Horseshoe Bay or a little further to the famous Port Elliot Bakery. Philip and Wendy were a delight to liaise with which made the booking, the checking in and checking out process was so smooth.

Probably one of the most relaxing weekend getaways I have ever had, and am already planning another one in a couple of months here again!

Relax with a great view of the sea and coast at Beachcomber

Dear Philip and Wendy, we have recently stayed at your Beachcomber Holiday place and enjoyed a most wonderful and relaxing holiday.

We found your home to have everything we needed and more. The view is excellent, the choice of parking both cars securely behind the garage door and the outside facilities all very good. Thank you for the extra items such as soaps, gels, cleaning items ( barely used as the home was so clean and tidy ) dishwashing tablets and exceptional range of crockery, cutlery and cooking items. 

We really appreciated the linen and towels provided and we all thought we would like to take those extremely comfortable beds home.

Beachcomber, a Home away from home in a sensational location

The location was even better than we’d expected. The views were amazing and ever-changing. We spent many relaxing hours soaking up the sights and sounds of the ocean, all from the comfort of our ‘home away from home’.

We love the ‘feel’ of Beachcomber – (it’s a testament to the care you put into presenting your property) – and its proximity to great walks, beaches and food. We can’t wait for our next visit!
