Robe: Accommodation for All Seasons

In the southeast corner of South Australia lies a diverse region of rugged coastline, sandy beaches, beautiful vineyards and charming villages. The Limestone Coast is home to the historic seaside town of Robe, which is an ideal base from which to explore the nearby natural wonders. If you’re looking for somewhere to stay, there are plenty of options on hand.

The Water’s Edge

Robe is an ideal spot to make the most of aquatic activities, or simply relax and soak in the wide ocean views. For a beach hut with all the mod cons, consider Dunes at Robe, overlooking West Beach. The two cottages here are spacious, comfortable and ideal for couples and families. Looking to spoil yourself? 128 The Esplanade is a two-storey home with five bedrooms, a heated pool and everything you need for a luxury break. Head out the gate and meander down the track to Robe’s best swimming spot, Long Beach.

For those looking to self-cater, The Beach House, overlooking lovely Guichen Bay, is a three-bedroom home that’s superbly equipped with everything from air-conditioning to a barbeque, flat-screen TV and DVD selection. Or for romantics, there’s Driftwood House, an atmospheric timber home with views of Fox Lake, and only a short amble to the beach. Spa bath, breakfast hamper and wine are included.  The budget conscious haven’t been forgotten either, with Lakeside Tourist Park, Sea Vu Caravan Park and Robe Nampara Cabins all very good options for waterside holidays.

History and Heritage

In the 18th century Robe was a bustling port and home to ship crews, working fishermen and an influx of Chinese who arrived via Robe to seek their fortune in the Victorian goldfields. Why not immerse yourself in the history with a stay at one of the enchanting historic properties in and around Robe.

Victoria Cottage is a restored fisherman’s cottage in the heart of town, featuring an open fireplace, secluded cottage garden and attractive heritage decor. Built in 1847, the heritage-listed Robe House is a stonewalled property with a lovely wide verandah, relaxing garden and all the mod cons. Criterion is a two-bedroom settler’s cottage with a contemporary extension. And Cornerstone Cottage, “the second house built in Robe” is another centrally located and fully restored timber cottage, originally built around 1846. The charmingly named Granny Banks is a one-bedroom property with spa, open fireplace and a self-contained kitchen. And Robe Cottage is an atmospheric 150 year old stone cottage with four bedrooms, spa bath, spacious living areas and a private garden.
