Recently I scored a great deal on Groupon for 4 people in a 2 room cabin at the Marion Bay Villas, Yorke Peninsula.

Travelling in May I thought the weather might let us down but there were intermittent showers and I must say it didn't really interfere with the enjoyment of the weekend away.

Yorke Peninsula is a place I really love and I regularly come back too.

It has breathtaking scenery, lots of wildlife, surfing and swimming beaches, delicious bakeries and a buzzing family pub scene.

Marion Bay Villas accommodation was a pleasant surprise. When I have stayed in cabins previously I have always felt a lack of privacy and lacking in space inside. Not in this cabin.

While the cabins are close to each other, they are partially concealed by native plants making it feel quite private. The cabin exterior is a gorgeous blue and white, fitting in well with the scrub surrounds and close proximity to the ocean and nearby Marion Bay jetty where you can catch anything from squid and whiting to rays.

Pets are also allowed at this park and there is a small kennel to pop your dog in, although I would suggest speaking with the owner first to check that yours is the only one booked in as it's not suitable for housing multiple dogs together from different families.

Would definitely stay here again. Nick the owner provided fantastic customer service both during the booking process and during our stay. Comfortable, clean, reasonably priced, quiet and great central location on a sealed road. Ten out of ten.

I got a voucher on cudo for a week stay in 2012 heavily reduced price to stay at the Marion Villas. It was the most disgusting villa ever. It may have been a fabulous place to stay in its hey day, but we stayed in a pet friendly villa with our small family dog.The carpets were filfthy and stained from urine and we used a bottle of bleach entering the shower as the grout was black from mould! Very disapointed and told them in the feedback as they were wanting to sell the villas as a flyer had been placed on the kitchen table.Goodluck, the villa we stayed in needed major renovating!

Hi Erin, my daughter and I stayed at Marion Bay Holiday Villas last summer and spent every day walking in Innes National Park. It was beautiful. We found the villas basic but clean and with everything we needed as we cooked our own meals each night. I think this would have to be the most beautiful part of South Australia.
