There are two queen-sized bedrooms, two double bedrooms and a twin bedroom (with two single beds). The sitting room has comfortable leather sofas and recliners, a wood-burning combustion heater, TV and DVD player. The main bathroom has a full-sized bath, shower, vanity and WC; and a second bathroom has a shower over a half-sized bath and vanity, with a separate WC adjoining. The laundry area has a washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board. A country “eat-in” kitchen has a solid timber table and seating for up to 8-9 guests as well as cooktop, oven, microwave, dishwasher, cookware, cutlery, crockery and glasses. Smith Street Villa has ducted reverse cycle air conditioning in four of the five bedrooms; wall-mounted reverse cycle air conditioners in the sitting room and kitchen; and a wood-burning combustion heater in the sitting room. A feature of the house is a new, very large back verandah with decking and a barbecue and outdoor setting – ideal for casual meals, drinks and snacks overlooking the back garden. The verandah is completely fenced, so it's very safe for children, and has a ramp for easy access as well as steps leading to the garden. Smith Street Villa is one of six properties owned and run by Naracoorte Cottages. (The others are MacDonnell House, Limestone View and Pinkerton Hill.) Richard Peake and Judy Barton established this “people friendly” Bed and Breakfast business in 1995 and have welcomed thousands of satisfied guests from South Australia, interstate and overseas. NARACOORTE COTTAGES offers comfort, convenience and cleanliness with all modern amenities. The B&Bs are ideal for singles, couples, families and groups – as well as corporate guests – for one overnight stopover or a longer stay. They are private for one guest group at a time – even if there's only one guest. The houses have plasma TVs, DVD players, free local call telephones, free access to wireless broadband (BYO laptop or desktop computer) and reverse cycle air conditioning. Bed linen, towels and toiletries are provided. Tariffs are value for money and include generous full breakfast provisions (eggs, bacon, tomatoes, fruit juice, boxed cereals, bread, jams and spreads, tea, instant coffee, coffee grounds and milk); and a complimentary 750ml bottle of wine with every booking. Families and children are welcome (cot, high chair and change table can be provided if needed). Note that MacDonnell House does not have any single ensemble beds, but a fold-up bed for a child can be provided. DISCOUNTS. There are discounts for bookings of more than one night. Corporate, family and group rates are available. A “no breakfast” option is also available. NARACOORTE is home to the South Australia's only World Heritage listed site, the Naracoorte Caves National Park, 10km south of town. The park includes Wonambi Fossil Centre, telling the story of megafauna whose bones are preserved in fossil deposits, and caves with spectacular limestone formations, a Bat Cave and a cafe. The Caves, 10km south of town, are open 9am to 5pm daily Naracoorte is also central to four premium wine regions – Coonawarra, Penola, Padthaway and Wrattonbully – within a 48km or 30-minute radius. Splash out in the large manmade Naracoorte swimming lake, with reticulated and chlorinated water and lifeguards on duty on very hot days. It's surrounded by lawns and shady trees, is free and is open from December 1 to March 31. The town of Naracoorte has two seven-day supermarkets, three hotels, Thai and Chinese restaurants, a renowned family bakery, a French patisserie/chocolatier, McDonald's, Subway and many other takeaway food shops and a thriving shopping centre. The Commonwealth Bank, ANZ Bank, Westpac, National Australia Bank and BankSA all have branches in the town centre; and there's also the People's Choice credit union and a Bendigo Community Bank agency. Out of hours, you can draw money from six ATMs. Be sure to visit the award-winning The Sheep's Back wool industry museum, set in a historic three-storey former flour mill, and the Mini Jumbuk factory, where woollen bedding products for the world are made, and its visitor centre.
