Floating Haven - Willmaree

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Port Macquarie is all about the water. Your apartment is floating on the water- a floating haven. Accommodating two people, your romantic event will be off to a perfect start. Located on the edge of the restaurant precinct, on the water's edge, you will have uninterrupted water views. Alternatively, the kitchen or BBQ enables you to eat in.

Enjoy sitting on the deck of the floating apartment, sipping champagne and watching for dolphins. If that seems to strenuous, cool off by taking a dip in the Hastings River, straight off the deck.

Floating Haven is a boat that remains securely docked so you have the enjoyment of staying on a houseboat without the stress of driving or anchoring.

Fabulous Property

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely two night stay, the boat was very clean and extremely well presented, very comfortable with everything one could possible need for a great stay. The owner was very pleasant and only too happy to make our stay enjoyable. A great way to spend a weekend or a longer stay, the shops, great restaurants and beaches are in walking distance.

Serenity by the waters edge

  • 5 of 5

Willmaree was the perfect find in Port Macquarie. A stone's throw from cafes, restaurants & shops yet the houseboat was a hidden sanctuary. Sitting on the back deck with the dolphins and pelicans putting on a show right in front of us was a memorable way to spend the afternoon.

A Relaxing and Unique Weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience! For a completely different kind of stay look no further than Willmaree. Stunning river scenery, beautiful bird life and so close to everything. This is the perfect unwind accommodation for singles or couples.

Positives - position to CBD, uniqueness, comfort, scenery, space, amazing walking & cycle tracks around the river, plenty of games, dvds and books on board. BBQ + outdoor chairs and table for the deck.

Negatives - car parking on weekdays - non existent during the holiday period - although on weekends the car park is "free" all day if you can get a spot.

You need good balance and nerve to cross the floating jetty and to climb off the gangway and then up into the boat. It gets easier after a couple of times though and is definitely part of the experience.

Excellent property, wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful time staying here. It was fun to be able to stay in such a unique location. It was a minute walk from town, but felt private at the same time. The owner was extremely kind and helpful and made our stay enjoyable. the sunsets from the back deck are worth it alone! Property is well cared for, the bed is comfortable and the knives are sharp. What more could you ask for!

Best Position Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property, loved it. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets and gorgeous mornings while sitting on deck. How many times could you say you had dolphins in your back yard. Fantastic facilities and so close to town. Did not want to leave and will definitely be back.
