Marked by sandy beaches and a chilled-out persona, Glenelg makes for a very appealing getaway destination. This little suburb is often overshadowed by the city of Adelaide which neighbors it. However, when you choose to gravitate away from the excitement of the city, you’ll come to discover hidden gems like stunning natural scenery and quaint pubs and eateries in Glenelg. For a bit of a thrill, visit Beachouse Amusement Center which offers fun water activities. However, if you simply want to lay on the soft sand, this destination has an abundance of beach real estate to keep you enchanted. Read this article to find the perfect place for you to stay.

Glenelg Highrise Beachside Stylish Apartment703/16 Holdfast Promenade
Up to six guests can stay in this cottage, spending nights in the three bedrooms. There is just one bathroom, though, so sharing is imperative. However, that’s a minor trade-off for this stylish (and a little rustic) house. You get a cozy little living area in which there’s a fireplace and a television. This is the room where you’ll get to chill out with your loved ones as you wind down the day. There’s no need to worry about meals since there’s a modern, fully equipped kitchen where you can prepare whichever dish you please. While staying here, you also get access to WiFi internet as well as off-street parking for one car. 2 km (1.2 miles) away, is the beach and the tram stop is only 400 meters (1312 feet) away.
Da Costa Cottage - Glenelg East6A Wyatt Street
This rental is yet another one that’s perfect for a small family or a group of four friends. There are two bedrooms and one bathroom here. Found very close to the beach, you can enjoy panoramic views of the ocean and the marina from the balcony. In fact, there’s a balcony via the master bedroom and another one via the living area so you’ll have enough reason to just sit and enjoy the view. When you get tired of this, relax in the living room, on the cushy sofa, watching the television. There’s also a kitchen that’s spacious and fully equipped, ensuring you can prepare a meal when you need to. Other facilities on offer are a swimming pool and gym on the property, as well as a spa and sauna.
