What our guests say...

"A fabulous holiday. Our first time on the Murray River. We chose to have a big boat for only two couples and thoroughly enjoyed it. Miriam was very helpful and made it easy, especially arranging this trip remotely from New Zealand. Great value for money. Semi followed the suggested seven day itinerary and couldn’t have asked for a better time. Morgan township and the Caudo Vineyard were highlights. Will strongly recommend to our friends"

"What a fabulous houseboat! We had so much fun and couldn't believe everything you had on board. Tons of room for us all plus the grandparents. Such a treat to wake up to the sounds of kookaburra's and the scenery was so interesting. Thanks for providing binoculars and a bird book on board - kept us intrigued for hours."

RJ, Prospect SA

"The perfect houseboat aptly named for our families first Murray River adventure. Very spacious and comfortable with everything we needed ( plus more) on board. So much bird and wildlife to enjoy, the kids hardly even watched the TV!"

TS, Mt. Gambier SA

"Three couples, lots of laughs, too much food and just enough to drink! Could not have asked for a better boat for our holiday. Very well equipped at a great price. You will definitely see us again."

RH, Portland Vic

"You have the very best location we have been from, and we have been on 5 previous houseboat holidays! Spectacular scenery, so many quiet mooring spots and very little river traffic."
