Five minutes walk to the centre of town, this charming fully-furnished family home is set among trees in a quiet location across the road from Gleeson Park. This reserve is mainly lawn and trees with a small playground for children, and is suitable for family games and picnics ... bring your badminton net!

Designed and built by an architect in the 1960s, the quirky home has many interesting features including a narrow sky-view strip that runs the length of the roof. Very little has been modified over the years, apart from the original balcony. This was completely rebuilt (2017) to comply with modern building-safety standards.

The master bedroom upstairs has a small bridge that leads across to an elevated private garden with fruit trees.

While the main bathroom has a shower, toilet and bath, upstairs there's a second toilet with hand basin.

Being a chalet style with open stairs, our holiday home is not ideally suitable for wee toddlers, however we have a portacot for babies.

Off street parking is available for up to three vehicles.

  • We were blown away by how amazing this house was

    We were blown away by how amazing this house was. The rooms were lovely and everything you could possibly need was provided. Amazing hosts who were really friendly and right next door in case there were issues. It is located really close to the Centre of down on a beautiful quiet street. Would come back in a heartbeat as this is everything a holiday rental should be!

  • Owner was great

    Owner was great. House was VERY hot though, I appreciate it was like 31 degrees, but still the amount of glass in the ceiling turns this into a greenhouse. Very close to Countdown, easy to find, owner included some good amenities like sauce/oil/milk for our stay. BBQ was fantastic, very good to cook on. Beds were comfortable. Upstairs bathroom only has a curtain for a door, so the "2 bathrooms" in description may not be accurate for groups that aren't families.

    Everything as expected from the pictures, house well kept, with nice open plan. Ron made himself available for any queries, although we didn't have any problems. House can get a little bit hot during the day, but cools down quickly in the evening.
