Hello, my name is Elizabeth and Mackinnon is my home. I now live in Indonesia and make my self contained apartment in Adelaide available for rental for either the discerning business traveller or families. The house has been home to myself and two children throughout their childhood. We are now scattered all over Australia and Indonesia and still call Mackinnon home. We visit regularly to check on the house and to upgrade it to the standard you see today.
Mackinnon is a large fully furnished self contained apartment, available for short term or long term stays, and offers travellers a great alternative to the restrictive hotel rooms. It’s three bedrooms offer accommodation for up to 6 people.
When we stay in the house, we like to explore Melbourne Street and all the cafes, shops and salons it has to offer. My little grandsons enjoy the zoo across the road where we visit the pandas . The monkeys sometimes wake us up at Mackinnon also. We find the location very central and only minutes from the city, Adelaide Oval and the Festival Centre.
We love the playgrounds down the road a bit and also the new tennis courts over the road. We sometimes use the Uni Loop to catch up on our fitness with a run around the loop. If you follow the river, you will see the paddle boats, ducks and wildlife which live on the River Torrens. The track will take you right down to the beachside suburbs if you keep following it.
Our family loves the AFL football and is very happy that the fixtures will now be held at the nearby Adelaide Oval. We are also very close for the cricket and the Ashes in December. Mackinnon is also just across the road for the Womadelaide festival in March and the Clipsal 500.
