It's not what you expect.

  • 4 of 5

Corrine and Dave were friendly and more than happy to go the extra mile. We were left alone to enjoy the surroundings and all the features of the accommodation that made an enjoyable night. We fished off the pontoon and caught a handful of keepers and a mud crab, so don't let the depths fool you and more importantly fish at the change of tides.

Great place to sleep/relax!

  • 5 of 5

We had a short but lovely time in the boathouse. The river and property is so peaceful, I could have slept all day long. Corrinne and David were amazingly accomodating and really went above and beyond to get us out of a logistics bind! Thank you so much to you both! I recommend this place and the hosts very highly!

Peaceful and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Dave and Corrine's lovely property with our pooch Mayo. The views of the river are stunning and the outdoor fire pit was very cozy. We loved the outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven and BBQ. Thanks to you both for handling all our queries and being so laid back. We will definitely be back!
