Beautiful, peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great Easter at Riverbed. Particularly enjoyed feeding the parrots, watching the kangaroos and borrowing Lyn's canoe and rowboat to explore and fish on the river in front of the house.

Great peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great accommodation getaway, ever so peaceful and very very comfortable. The views are excellent, the animal and bird life are sensational and if you seek a great spot to rest up, relax, unwind, walk, sit on the deck while communicating with parrots, chooks and kangaroos, or snuggle up to a wood fire, then you would struggle to find better. We had very peaceful week long break and did not want for anything. Lyn was a friendly but non obtrusive host. All good, Hope to be back.

A magnificent location.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Riverbed on the Water twice and we all greatly enjoy our time there. The large and interesting garden with abundant wildlife is very entertaining for our young children and the beautiful, expansive views and natural location are perfect for hours of relaxing. There are so many amazing places to visit in the nearby National Park. Several short drives took us to breathtaking areas of pristine wilderness that we had entirely to ourselves. Mallacoota is close with all the conveniences required but staying in Gypsy Point avoids the holiday crowds and it is always peaceful and serene. The owners made us feel very welcome and we are thankful to them for providing such a great place to stay in a truly world class location.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had three wonderful nights here and can thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting peace and quiet in idyllic surroundings. The cottage is very comfortable and is well equipped. We were greeted by a warm loaf of bread and breakfast goodies including eggs fresh from the coop. The bird life is amazing, and the view from the deck is beautiful. Will be back.
