The Yorke Peninsula is synonymous with holiday adventures for many Adelaideans. Whether it be a bootstrapped camping trip with overcooked marshmallows on the campfire, cooped up in a family friend’s shack on the beachfront or lounging around under the canopy of a camper trailer – we’ve all been there. My Sister & The Sea has all of the above, and then some.
After a three-hour car ride (including a mandatory photo sitting on the ‘Welcome to York Peninsula’ sign), guests will pull up in the small township of Marion Bay. There sits an oh so chic weatherboard cottage. My Sister & The Sea is a whimsical 1950s Airbnb property, pulled straight from the Swedish summer beaches. The cottage itself is an easy stroll away from the beaches and a five-minute drive from Innes National Park. What makes My Sister & The Sea so incredibly special is the sense of awe-inspiring calm as soon as you step through the front door.
Tranquil, elegant and simple, the cottage has three bedrooms, all nautically themed, with their own unique colour palettes. There’s also a covered back deck and a fire pit area, as well as a detached rumpus room perfect for relaxing.
As well as the outdoor fire pit, the cottage has a fireplace inside, as well as a smaller fire on the deck. There’s daybeds to curl up on and a quaint outdoor shower/bath. The large, rustic farmhouse table is an ideal centrepiece – a battlefield for games of Monopoly or evening meals.
My Sister & The Sea makes for an excellent place to take a small group of close friends for a weekend getaway. Spend time taking in the local culture, and enjoying the serenity. Just looking at My Sister & The Sea should help with that.
My Sister & The Sea can be found at 7 Waratah Avenue, Marion Bay, Yorke Peninsula, South Australia, 5575.
