Excellent location, excellent property.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wondearful family weekend based here. The house is homely, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Great attention to detail; even shoe cleaning brushes.The beds are very comfortable. It's well worth the effort to get up early to walk down to the river to watch the Pelicans. We even saw a little eagle.

Great property

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay with gorgeous bedrooms/linen and facilities and the food offerings. However, somewhat disappointed with some of kitchen tools (example would be the dirty food strainer that had rice hanging from bottom of holes...and the large round skillet that appeared to not have been cleaned due to the amount of dirty oil laced around the inside). Great stay, but not fantastic....sorry...wont leave a revues on their page...I know it wont get shown.

Owner's Response: Dear Trevor and Lainie, thank you for your review and we're glad that there were aspects of your stay that you really enjoyed. We're so sorry you were disappointed with some of the kitchen items as you mentioned. We pride ourselves on our cleanliness (as you can see in other reviews) but obviously this time some items were overlooked. So sorry again and yes we can easily update with some new kitchen tools, Kind Regards, Michelle and Humphrey

Fantastic place !!

The Water House is clean, peaceful, private and full of light. A fantastic place to holiday. The only negative is - eventually you have to go home...
