Dreaming of a beachside getaway but torturing yourself because you missed out on those spectacular Bali flight deals?

Well it might do to look a bit closer to home for your getaway. Only 20 minutes out of the CBD, there are a range of fabulous accommodation options for your holiday needing heart and these are just three of the fabulous spots available at Henley Beach.

The 4.5 star Adelaide Luxury Beach House on Henley Beach’s Esplanade, boasts sunsets and sea views from three levels and is just a short stroll from the many shops and eateries. Each level has floor-to-ceiling windows with commanding beach and ocean views.

From your room you can spot dolphins, fur seals and pelicans frolicking in the water.

And from the rooftop terrace you can see over 30 kilometres of white beaches surrounding Gulf St Vincent, with Glenelg and the Fleurieu Peninsula to the south, Port Adelaide and the Barossa Valley to the north.

From the rear of the house you can see Adelaide Hills to the east. So the views are stunning no matter where you’re situated.

NYC style apartment 251 & Up definitely has pole position when it comes to views of Henley Jetty. The warehouse loft overlooks Henley Square, the jetty, and the surf life saving club.

The decor also encompasses everything cool. The warehouse loft has a gorgeous mix of undone architecture with clear view of the horizon, making sunset watching simply unmissable.

It’s also close to a plethora of dining options so lounging in the sun drenched accommodation and then heading for a gorgeous meal is easily on the cards.

The quirky Funky 2 Beds really knows how to put out the welcome mat in, well, funky style. It’s a light and bright space that’s perfect for a couple travelling or small quiet family.

Every inch of the space is filled with an array of artistic pieces. Andy Warhol-esque art that’s complemented by vintage cushions, couches, throws and more.

Fitting four guests very comfortably, Funky 2 Beds is also a very affordable price of $99 a night.

While you’re visiting, check out some of the retailers in Henley who showcase a lovely range of items. Such as Naomi Schwartz’s Jewellery Design Gallery exhibition “Ocean Texture” which feature pieces she has created from timber salvaged during the jetty renovation.
