Stay in our converted garage loft, now a modern, relaxing living space. The Loft comes with a huge bedroom area, the lower level with kitchenette and balcony, looking towards the ocean. The apartment is a few meters away from the main house where we live but it is very private. It has a light-filled compact en-suite, kitchenette with sink, bar fridge, induction cook top, electric grill, convection microwave, Nespresso pod machine and essential items. Pool and spa are available on request.

The space
Our property is 10 minutes from Tea Tree Plaza and the Modbury area, and about 25 minutes from the city. With amazing views over Adelaide, you will love our property. It is a peaceful, bird-filled setting on a beautiful hillside location, looking west to Gulf St. Vincent. Stay in our library loft and recharge. Guests have access to a spa and pool upon request. Our property is spacious and looks directly down the Adelaide airport runway. It's a great place to watch the planes from the north-west bank overhead.

Guest access
Upon request, our spa and pool are available for guest use. The spa is next to our kitchen windows but we will respect your space and allow you to enjoy the amazing sunsets in peace and solitude. You are welcome to use the garden furniture for sunning yourselves, reading, dining and relaxing. With the beautiful views over Adelaide, you will feel more relaxed in our garden immediately.

Other things to note
We are on instagram as thelibraryloft. There are more photographs available there. We have two little dogs who are very friendly. If you like dogs feel free to say hello. If you don't we will keep them inside. We have a cat also. She is a free spirit. Our chickens wander in the garden outside of the Library Loft. They are shy but very friendly.
The kangaroos on our property may seem tame but they are wild animals. Please do not attempt to pat or feed then. Do not threaten them. We respect our wildlife at the Hermitage.

Close by is Glen Ewin Estate and a little further away is the historic Inglewood Inn. Down towards the suburbs is the historical Fox and Firkin Hotel. We are right near to Anstey Hill, which has great views of Adelaide and wonderful walking terrain. Westfield Tea Tree Plaza is only 10 minutes away. Sometimes the Tour Down Under goes right past our driveway, 500m up the hill. The beautiful towns of Gumeracha and Birdwood are a short drive in to the countryside away. Drive for 50 minutes or so, and you will be at the town of Mannum on the River Murray. The Library Loft is close to the Barossa Valley, the Adelaide Hills and various wedding venues. We are situated under the flight path to Adelaide airport for those who love plane watching. We Never tire of watching those planes!
