Our Holiday Shack represents a happy lifestyle that brings together families across the generations. We understand families, grandparents & kids

Our place is Yours to share. We like families, kids & small pets

Just over an hour's drive down South, a change of house can quickly create a positive feeling. Many of our guests come back again. There's a great community feel at Goolwa You can do absolutely 'nothing' at our place and not feel guilty

We are a family friendly relaxing holiday house with a 'beach shack' feel, with 4 bedrooms. Situated between Goolwa Beach and the Murray River Lake shore near Barrage Road. We are near to all featured entertaining areas, by easy walking or just a few minutes driving.

Close to some great places, just 2 minute's walk to the South Lakes Golf Course, or the AquaCaf restaurant and Goolwa Aquatic Club restaurant and the Regatta Yacht Club. From there, you have a short walk to the Cockle Train Station and Ballast Stone Restaurant, Steam Brewery etc at the classic Goolwa Wharf Precinct, all in easy walking along the lakefront walkway.

Our house helps bring families together. This is a privately owned holiday home, in a quality established area with native gardens & trees. We love our holiday house and we share it with good people.

Top Rated Property: Our house rates highly by positive guest approvals ~ because we offer fair pricing and pay attention to guest requirements. We are flexible with hours of entry and exit. Guests have our phone number and can call 24/7 for any assistance or issues.

The house is a classic, but updated two-storey Goolwa Shack house at South Lakes, with four 4 bedrooms, one that is actually a large open layout downstairs for multiple kids or sometimes used for a separate family. How many people will the house accommodate? Ask us for the number of persons our house will comfortably cope with.

Goolwa is just a 75 minute drive from Adelaide via the Hills Freeway, Mt Barker & Strathalbyn; or by the Southern Expressway / Victor Harbor Road. You don't need to bring much with you to have a great time.

[Guest comment: "We had a fantastic long weekend. It was very quiet and relaxing and the way you have set up the home meant we had everything on hand. The open plan of the house meant that we could have our own space but still talk to each other On Sunday morning we went for a walk around the area and it felt like we had been away for weeks. It really felt like our holiday house, so thank you so much for sharing it with us." Ali & Brian, Adelaide]

[Guest comment: "We recently had to attend a family event in Goolwa and would normally use a motel for such a sudden visit but this was so much better. The instructions were foolproof, the place was spotless and had everything that you would normally reach for at home. We are home again now and it seems like it was with much less effort than usual and we can only put it down to being able to relax like we were at home."]

At our house you'll hear the rolling ocean, just beyond the golf course and sandhills. Nearby Goolwa Beach has on-beach access for 4WD adventures to the Murray Mouth and Beach Fishing. Any car can drive to the sheltered saltwater Coorong boat ramp at Beacon 19, just a few minutes drive down Barrage Road, alongside the River, where you can fish in tidal estuary waters nearer the Murray Mouth. The movie 'Storm Boy' was filmed right around here.

Nature: Bird watchers will be amazed with the wild life. Nearby is a World Standard Wilderness zone without the eco-tourist hype, all just a few minutes from our house.

Autumn or Winter: Down here next to the Southern Ocean is a great time to get away. The house is like a haven from the roar of the ocean, just 500 metres away.We are sailing people, and being in the house is a bit like being out there offshore. We love it.

Space for All: The house has comfortable space for 8 people, or even for two flexible families by agreement. Comfortable modern furnishings and a big split system heat/cool air-conditioner unit are a feature. Widescreen digital TV and DVD with our many quality film & music event DVDs for your use. Toilet facilities upstairs and down. Under the balcony there's a big gas BBQ ready for dinner/ breakfasts. Plus a Weber charcoal Kettle BBQ - if you know how.

Goolwa South Lakes is ideal for families to enjoy water sports or fishing. You have access to the ocean seawater via the excitement of traversing the Sea Lock through the Goolwa Barrage to cruise to the Coorong estuary and Murray Mouth. Water skiing, parasail boarding, trailer-sailing or even r/c model boating is a feature of the protected lakes. You are just a minute from the water at Open House Goolwa.

Goolwa ~ on Murray & Sea

Our family house is attractive and clean with an open 'shack style' relaxation in the garden setting of South Lakes, a traditional holiday place.

What to Bring: We ask you to supply YOUR OWN Linen for bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. Why? People have told us that is their preference. Yes, we do have emergency sheets, but please let us know if they are used. All the Beds have a quality Dunas & Quilt cover, so all you need is sheets. Three Bedrooms upstairs: one has a Queen size bed / one a Double and the third smaller bedroom has single bed Bunks. Downstairs sleeping space for 4 or more people in a bunkhouse style that kids really enjoy

Relax: Walking distance for great food If you don't want to cook, walk to the nearby South Lakes Golf Club where you are welcomed for good food & pokies; or the trendy AquaCaf, the Bombora Cafe near the beach or the Goolwa Yacht Club for a coffee, or the many town hotels, clubs, cafes and bakeries that are just a bit further into town.

BUT ~ you can have your meals delivered. Check for Pizza, Pasta & Indian style food contacts that we display on our fridge magnets Ring, relax and then eat out on the deck.

On Arrival: Put on the kettle. Use our complimentary quality Coffee Bags & Tea bags as a welcome. Sit down and relax. Choose a movie or a book. Doing nothing is totally acceptable

Cycle Groups: you are very close to the Encounter Bikeway.

On Sundays and during school holidays the Bikeway can be combined with the famous Cockle Train. Fantastic views of coast with many locations to stop and explore along the way including cafes, parks and historic towns of Middleton and Pt Elliot.

We are NOT A MOTEL and prefer stays of two 2 + more nights. We have specials for OFF PEAK Mid Week longer stays - Sunday to Thursday. Contact us to discuss our flexible options. PETS: Ask about your well-behaved Pets staying with you also.

NOTE: Long Weekends 3 nights & Peak School Holidays, Easter and Xmas or New Year Holiday periods are always in demand, so contact us early. Longer term bookings may receive precedence for Peak times.

Cleaning Agreement: You MUST leave the house "As Clean As You Found It" - including a final clean of dishes, kitchen, bathroom, toilets and sweeping & vacuum of floors up stairs and downstairs. This house is not a motel. It is easy to do a quick clean, that's all we ask.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy breezy beachside living We've stayed here multiple times and the owner has gone out of their way to make our stay easy and comfortable. You could fit a small army in here and the street is one of the most relaxed with a distinct lack of fences and endless green lawns that take me back to my childhood summers in the area. The house is well appointed with a bit of old-school beach house charm. Highly recommended.

The house was tucked away is a nice quiet street and was close to the water and town centre. A very spacious house, well equipped with everything we needed. We felt at home!
