Great little holiday house near the river.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at the Goolwa House. Garry our host made us feel quite welcome and had set up everything for our stay. We really liked be able to bring our dog along with us. The outdoor area an BBQ got used a lot and the kids enjoyed the hammock. Very close to everything including the Sunday markets. A lovely stroll down to the river edge. Lots to see and explore in the area and Goolwa is a great little town to have home camp.

Sit Back, Relax and Enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I, along with friends spent a weekend at this beautiful beach house that has a calming feel to it... Serenity! Warmly decorated with an eclectic charm, we will return again soon to relax from the stresses of work and the home front. It offers everything you need so you don't have to pack much and was very clean and comfortable.So conveniently located to everything, we didn't use the car at all. My partner especially loved being able to walk across the road to the bottle shop where the friendly attendant on one occasion hand delivered a carton of beer to us! I loved browsing the shops, cafes, restaurants and the market which just so happened to be on the Sunday we were there. My friend and I used the bikes to ride around the town while the boys enjoyed beers under the back pergola with a hammock. We came home feeling very refreshed.
