The Summer House

Images Port Elliot Boutique Escapes

The calendar says Dec. 1st so it's officially summer, although the overcast & cool weather here in Stirling at the moment could have fooled me! After another big party weekend I would love to be able to retreat for some R&R in this gorgeous beach getaway house not far from us on the wonderful Fleurieu Peninsula.

Port Elliot is a charming coastal holiday village & this new rental accommodation caught my eye immediately. Very chic & elegant, with 3 bedrooms & 2 bathroms & lots of extra luxuries, I think MOTH would have to carry me to the car kicking & screaming at check-out time!


  1. It is very cool for the first day of summer isn't it!!

    Loving this place, think I need to visit.... plenty of space to store all my purchases from "little bird" after a spending spree in the main street of the town.


  2. Great place for a holiday.
    .. I have to have that Kenton Nelson print.
    Thanks for the tip Millie.

  3. I would love some R&R here. It is cold here too Millie! BTW I have given you a challenge. Details are on my blog.

  4. I never got to take a honeymoon with my hubby. This will do. Thanks Millie and enjoy the movie, take lots of tissues and make sure you peed, it's a long one. It is not a flop in my book but I am bias.

  5. I could so do with a week or two in this beautiful home - and I would appreciate the cooler weather! Tracey x

  6. oh my goodness... I think I am in love. I just adore white. I think it is so peaceful! I would love to visit soon. Thank for the comments on my blog. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  7. I wouldn't blame you... I would kick and scream too! GREAT place!

  8. Wow, I never knew we had something so sophisticated as this right on our doorstep!

  9. thank you very much.

    J'aime ce décor blanc
    bonne semaine a vous

  10. Hi Millie,

    Seriously, Vacation No Way! I'm moving in! LOL Love the art work. Oh, and I've been trying to get in the mood for Christmas! Thanks for not helping!!! :-)

  11. It's just way to hot for my liking here - I would love to send some of our hot weather down your way!
    I could spend some of my holiday time in this beauty. Amanda x

  12. How absolutely stunning. I will be sure to check out that area when we are down there and maybe will get to stay here another time. Wish i had known about it when we booked so many months ago. That place is gorgeous. Mel xx

  13. Laurel, I was so happy to stumble across your fabulous blog and low and behold a little feature on The Summer House way back in December. This is my families B&B in Port Elliot and I feel so chuffed that you liked it enough to blog about it - it feels like we were published or something and all your followers left such nice comments. We hope you will have a chance to stay one day. Keep up the great blogging - I have already saved The Laurel Hedge to my favourites. Kelly
