About the property

Maggies beachhouse is a new two-storey house, 500m from Goolwa Beach.

We have a large front deck with sea views, including views of Newland Head, West Island and The Bluff. There is a dining setting on the front deck and a number of deck chairs to while away some hours. It's a perfect spot to catch a stunning sunset. There is also a sunny back deck, cosy for morning coffee. The house has two living areas, four bedrooms, two bathrooms and three toilets.

Upstairs there is a large open living area with lounge, kitchen and dining. There is an upstairs toilet for general use. The main bedroom is also upstairs and has a king-size bed and an ensuite. The kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher, microwave, blender, toasted sandwich-maker, many cooking utensils and other necessities (lots of glasses, cocktail shaker, baking trays, cake tins, jelly moulds, cookbooks, if you get inspired to cook up a storm).

Downstairs there is a lounge (with a bookcase full of good books), two bedrooms with queen-size beds and a fourth bedroom with two single beds and two trundle beds (which are suitable only for kids). We keep linen for the trundles if they are needed in the chest of drawers in the kid's room. There is also a bathroom with a bath and a separate shower. There are electric blankets (in winter) on the queen beds and the king bed (but not the children's beds.)

There is a 72 cm (36 inch) TV with DVD player upstairs and a 92 cm (46 inch) TV with DVD player downstairs. There are many good DVDs supplied. There is also a sound system upstairs.

The back garden has a barbecue and garden setting (low table and chairs). We have a lockup shed with a table tennis table and gear. There is a two person kayak for your use on the Coorong, Lake Alexandrina and Lake Albert, the Goolwa Inlet or the Murray River.

There is a relaxing front lawn for bocce (set supplied).

Maggies is located on the Encounter Bay bike trail near the Tokuremoar Reserve, a beautiful path through the bush for walking and cycling. The Encounter Bay bike trail goes from Goolwa township through Middleton and Port Elliot to Victor Harbour.

Goolwa Beach is a fabulous big beach extending from Middleton Beach to the Murray Mouth, with cockling (limited season November to May), fishing, swimming and surfing, and whale-watching (whales come May to September). Near the part of the beach which is under guard by lifesavers is the wonderful seafood restaurant Bombora.

Goolwa township itself is a pretty and historic river port located at the mouth of the mighty Murray River. The Cockle Steam Train from Goolwa to Victor runs regularly on weekends and school holidays and is loved by kids (young and old). The Goolwa Wharf market is a beautiful little market every first and third Sunday of each month as well as some other special dates.

In this area is the world heritage wetlands of The Coorong and Lakes Alexandrina and Albert, the Goolwa channel and the Mundoo channel. Activities in this area include wineries at Currency Creek and Langhorne Creek, kayaking and sailing on the lakes and The Coorong, fishing at the mouth of the Murray and on the beach, bird-watching at Signal Point and Hindmarsh Island.

The Ngarrindjeri people are the Aboriginal owners of the lower Murray River, the eastern Fleurieu (including the Goolwa area) and The Coorong. They have a cafe and gallery at their community at Raukkan on Lake Alexandrina.

Goolwa, Middleton and Port Elliot are well-loved tourist towns with cafes, restaurants and shops. Goolwa has two golf courses, pubs, cafes, supermarkets, chemist and petrol stations. Middleton (5 mins by car) has a good surf shop, antique shop and cafes. Port Elliott (10 mins by car) has boutique shops, a great bakery, pubs and restaurants and protected Horseshoe Bay for swimming. Victor Harbour (20 mins by car from Goolwa) is a much larger service town with cinemas, a whale-watch centre and larger shopping centre.

We'd love to make your stay in the Fleurieu very comfortable and lots of fun.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Maggies Beach house! The house is beautiful, comfy beds and well decorated. The verandah is a lovely spot to sit and catch up with family and you get to enjoy the views of the ocean and victor harbour. The house is well equipped with pantry essentials. Also the linen was very high quality and just gave it that extra touch of comfort and luxury. Would highly recommend this house to anyone and will definitely be back!

Great property for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Together with another family, we stayed at Maggie's Beachhouse over the October long weekend. The house had everything we needed, including a well stocked kitchen with cooking equipment and some pantry essentials included, good quality linens and books and DVDs. The house was clean and well presented when we arrived.

Staying with 3 young children, the stairs were a bit of a challenge (and a novelty) but they had a great time too. The only thing I'd note is that linen wasn't included for the trundle beds in the twin room.

Christmas family break

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Maggie's, the place was beautifully furnished and incredibly well stocked with all you could want for a holiday by the beach (incl. surf boards in the shed!). It was also a pleasure to arrive and not have to spend the first few hours cleaning as the place was immaculate (a rare combination from our experiences). It's only a 5 minute stroll to the beach with views of the ocean from the deck - highly recommended.

Our stay at Maggie's was just perfect! The beach house is spacious, stylish and beautifully decorated but still has a wonderful relaxing feel to it. We enjoyed all the creature comforts wanted in a 'home away from home' with no detail being over looked. The kids enjoyed having their own space down stairs, whilst we enjoyed the spacious upper level, complete with a large deck - perfect for sitting out in the sun and enjoying a glass of local wine. We will definitely be staying at Maggie's again and can highly recommend this lovely property.
