A great little get away that is close to great fishing and services if you need them. Dave was our night in shining armor when our boat broke down and went well a truly out of his way to help us back to camp - a hugh thank you for your help. We will be back for another boys fishing trip (when the wife lets us). Thanks Guys a great week was had.

Great getaway on the Macdonald river

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 plus the dog spent 3 relaxing days by the river. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by Jack the 'family butler' who gave us a quick tour and a basket of fresh eggs.

The lack of wifi plus very poor mobile reception made it difficult to research things to do in the area. However, these minor issues were more than compensated by the excellent outdoor entertainment area, use of the private jetty, supplied canoes, kayaks and life jackets and a huge choice of movies.

Would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a laid back getaway.

It's not what you expect.

  • 4 of 5

Corrine and Dave were friendly and more than happy to go the extra mile. We were left alone to enjoy the surroundings and all the features of the accommodation that made an enjoyable night. We fished off the pontoon and caught a handful of keepers and a mud crab, so don't let the depths fool you and more importantly fish at the change of tides.

Great place to sleep/relax!

  • 5 of 5

We had a short but lovely time in the boathouse. The river and property is so peaceful, I could have slept all day long. Corrinne and David were amazingly accomodating and really went above and beyond to get us out of a logistics bind! Thank you so much to you both! I recommend this place and the hosts very highly!
