Mingle in Millionaire's row

Enjoy feeling like a millionaire in millionaire's row! Canal living is beautifully serene. You will be in holiday mode the moment you step through the front door.For those days you are not on the water, simply drop a line from the back door & relax. Mud crabs and sandies will both pot in the passage and guests have had a ball eating fish they caught from the pontoon.
Lack of a boat won't stop you enjoying the best holiday of your life at BOATHOUND.
Incredible Charters can pick up at Bongaree Ph. for charter boat fishing.

BOATHOUND PACIFIC HARBOUR is rated 4.4667 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from We Love Boathound! This is the second time we have stayed in Banksia Beach and third time staying at Boathound. It never fails to disappoint. The location is amazing and with the boat it made our holiday complete. There is heaps of room for the kids and dogs to run and a very usable outdoor area and Kitchen. The Pontoon is great for 4 people to sit and watch the sunsets and the boats pass! We will be back again very very soon. Thanks Ken and Pauline again!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Average Holiday Home The house was basically clean, averagely furnished, kitchen pots & pans were well passed the use by date, furniture a bit tatty, pontoon was shared therefore we had difficulty in using it. therefore it should be advertised as small vessels only. BBQ poor, Good location, just a very average property.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holiday was terrific. The house had all the little things that make a holiday so refreshing and relaxing. Although the crabbing was slow, the fishing from the pontoon was excellent. We caught everything from monster flathead and bream to estuary cod and sweetlip. Brilliant!!!! Can't wait till next year. Cheers Jason & Darcy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even though the weather wasn't so good BoatHound provided a great family holiday and we would definately return.Having our dog with us it was great to have the dog park across the road and the boat in the canal.IGA a short stroll away.No need to get in your car.The house is very clean,modern and comfortable.Truly relaxing overlooking the water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This house has everything you would ever need . Great holiday had by all. We will be returning every year now. It is always clean - where else could you walk out the back door and jump in your boat and go and catch 56 sand crabs in one week

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love this place, the position couldn't be better and the house was extremely well stocked even for Christmas dinner! We spent most of our time for the nine days we were there on the pontoon with a fishing rod hung over the edge! We love the canal lifestyle, watching the world go by! The one thing that would have made it complete for us would be a boat! Thanks Ken and Pauline for your hospitality, we will most definitely be returning to Boathound - hopefully soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had a fantastic time not long enough though only 5 nights, couldn't believe the size of this duplex or how everything you need is at hand. We really felt right at home. Having access to our boat just out the back door was an awesome experience. Didn't catch anything legal size in fish but we did extremely well with 40 sand crabs within the canal. Can't wait to come back. Thank you to Ken & Pauline

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had a great time. House was great. We had better luck with the fishing from the pontoon than in the passage. Caught a nice Flounder and had a good feed of Bream. Caught a couple of Snapper and a Mangrove Jack (both were too small though). Got a sandi also. Lots of Butter Bream but they are fun to catch. The dogs had a great time also and the house had everything they needed. It was great just to be able to walk a few meters and cast in a line. The house is also walking distance to the shops and very close to the beach.We will be back again......
