Delightful setting and property

Birks Boathouse is a fabulous B & B in a great location. The DECKING OUT of the Boathouse is first class with all the comforts one could wish for.

The Boathouse far exceeded our expectations. We had a wonderfully relaxing time in a fantastic natural environment. The sun was shining, the sunrises perfect although the Boathouse would be a fantastic place to stay in the winter because of it's facilities. We are keen to use the warm fire while enjoying the views of Goolwa. We were spoilt by the accommodation which was clean, spacious and easy on the eye with all the delightful pieces of furniture and artwork. This was a time for my husband and I to 'escape' the home and children, our little bit of getaway luxury. Our time in the Boathouse was fantastic and we are keen to book again asap.

Very good setup with strong nautical theme. Comfortable bed, lounge chairs & deck lounges. Spotless bathroom. Situated beside esplanade and traffic noise imposed a little. I would book in cooler month next time as it would be quieter and better value.
