The location is amazing , the boathouse is well appointed, comfortable and inviting.
We were surprised the wifi was ineffective and had to use our mobile data. For some reason the cutlery was place at the bottom of a cupboard rather than at a more helpful height, a small small issue ...

Lovely couples retreat ”

Amazing location, very clean, large deck and bbq. Owners communicated as little or as much as you wanted to. Air-con worked great!
There is a road quite close to the bed side of the boathouse but it’s not busy.

The very good continental breakfast was provided. The cottage was in a fantastic location-right on&#47;over The Murray. Everything was very clean and in excellent condition. The location was also good...
The only thing which could have better would be the addition of some eggs and bacon in the breakfast supplies. It was a great continental set up but bacon and eggs on the deck would have been great.

A Very Special Place”

Big fluffy towels, great supplies, the fabulous view, the great decor, very pleasant hosts. Did I mention the view?
Kitchenette bench space was a bit tight but there is a big dining table as well. I just looked out the window &amp; I didn&#39;t give it a second thought.
