All you need
This is a very functional vacation rental property in a row of townhouses with some extra touches that put is above many others. It is in a nice neighbourhood about a half hour walk to downtown and accessible to the park nearby. There are not really any views since it looks out towards an alley in the front and more townhouses and parking in the back. If you want views, yes you should look elsewhere but if you want a really comfortable rental, this is it. All the rooms are nicely furnished. The bedroom, which is upstairs, has plenty of storage but does not have an ensuite but the bathroom is just down the hall. The extra room upstairs is a great place to do some work with a nice desk and access to a printer. The living and dinning rooms are very nice cozy. The back deck is a bonus when it is actually warm enough outside to enjoy it. But the kitchen and the extras that are available within it are what make this a special rental. Access to all the cooking ingredients you might want, crackers, cheese, cookies is wonderful but doesn't mean you don't go out and buy your own food. You do, but it is very nice knowing it is comprehensively stocked. The owners have done a fine job here.

First Class
Without doubt the most thoughtfully and thoroughly equipped self catering apartment I have ever had the pleasure to stay in, from the amazing spice cupboard to the Sheridan sheets and towels, from the welcoming fruit, wine and grocery supplies to the well thought out and clear instructions for everything it was just perfect. We will never stay any where else in adelaide!

Amazing!
This has to be the very best self-catering property we have ever stayed in on our many trips to Australia. In fact, I'm not sure I should be telling you about it in case it is booked next time we want to go. It is such a cute town house and immaculately clean. A generous supply of goodies was left for us including wine, cereals, milk, bread, yoghurt. But on top of that we were given the chance to use bits and pieces for the owner's larder. And what a larder! And such an array of cookery books. Absolutely loved our stay here. Oh yes - it is very close to Hutt Street with its cafes, shops and bars should you want to go out. And is in walking distance of the City centre. It has a nice little patio area with barbeque, table and chairs. A real gem.

An oasis in the city.
We were lucky enough to find Thorn Park during our unplanned visit to Adelaide this past January. Located just off of Hutt Street, we found the location to be perfect - great access to restaurants, bottle shops, and the IGA right around the corner had a surprising selection of goods. We walked every, to the Central Market, to Rundle Mall, through the Parklands; we certainly didn't miss having a vehicle. The condo itself is immaculate. From the fresh flowers when we checked in, to the fully stocked pantry and countless other goodies left for us - we felt spoiled. We used the back patio daily (well, except the day that it was 43 C!) and we were so happy to have a BBQ, we cooked at home a lot. David was extremely accomodating and welcoming. We would be fortunate to be able to stay at Thorn Park again, if (when) we retrun to Adelaide.

Everything you need
This was such a great property in a convenient area of Adelaide. The hosts thought of it all - from the complimentary bottle of wine and food, coffee machine, plethora of teas and spices, and all the cookware and dishes one would need. The wifi was fast, bed was comfortable, and how nice to have an outdoor patio and grille! I would definitely stay here again. No need to look further!

Blissful Second Home
A beautiful, relaxing place to stay. Very gluttonous and luxurious while remaining functional and homelike. Everything in this property is quality, and the owners cater to the small extras (spices, cables, torches, etc). Location is close to practicalities but with quiet surroundings. Excellent value, recommend very highly.

Calming, casual, convenient...
I stayed at Thorn Park in the City recently during the adelaide Festival and it was the perfect place to be... walking-distance close to the city and Festival highlights but also it's tucked in a quiet area with a great array of interesting restaurants, cafes, shops and a lovely park etc within even closer walking distance...That said it's also perfectly set up to just relax at home...we used the dining area and back deck a lot for calming late breakfasts...and to plan what we'd see and do next. It's compact but the feel is quietly stylish... very relaxing with interesting original artwork, muted colour scheme, comfortable furniture and a great little kitchen.
