Gool-a-watu - Holiday by the sea at wonderful Gool-a-watu while enjoying stunning views across the River Murray, Hindmarsh Island and the famous Goolwa sand dunes.

Swim, fish, surf, whale watch or go biking, golfing, wine tasting, boating, water skiing, wind surfing and jet skiing - all these activities are at your doorstep at Gool-a-watu.

The house is a fully airconditioned offering flexible accommodation for up to 10 people with all the mod cons and laundry and bbq.

A large balcony with steel wire railing surrounds the house affording sweeping views which swing from the South Lakes Golf Course - a minute's walk away - to over the Murray, the island and across the dunes.

All up there are five bedrooms, four with queensize beds and a king size bed in the master bedroom. All three upstairs bedrooms and living areas are air conditioned and open directly onto several balconies. Downstairs are two bedrooms, living area, kitchenette and bathroom. All you need bring is food, linen and personal toiletries.

A trail directly behind the house leads straight across the dunes to the beach and some great surf.

What to do

There are a million things to enjoy in and around Goolwa and nearby Port Elliot and Victor Harbor.

Wonderful walks through the dunes, birdwatching along the river where you will spy numerous pelicans and black swans, four-wheel driving along the beach all the way to the Murray Mouth with a bit of cockling thrown in along the way.

Walking and biking trails stretch from Goolwa to Victor Harbor taking in some of SA's most stunning coastline and hotspots for whale watchers. If you don't want to travel under your own steam, take the historic Cockle Train.

Two minutes walk from Gool-a-watu there's windsurfing, sailing and jetskiing. If you haven't got the equipment, it is usually available to hire.

Further along, river cruises offer fabulous trips to the Coorong. If you would rather skipper your own boat, they can be hired at the Hindmarsh Marina on Hindmarsh Island, while Narnu Farm on Hindmarsh Island is a great horse riding venue. If you are after fresh fish - and haven't had any luck with a line - fishermen on Hindmarsh Island at Mundoo Channel sell everybody's locally caught favourites - Coorong mullet and mulloway.

Parachuting and thrill rides on warbirds and jets is a ten minute drive down the road.

If you love art, don't miss Artworx with a wide range of works from from highly accomplished and emerging local and national artists, and a fabulous array of gifts.

You'll also be well fed and watered at many excellent wineries, the brewery, cafes and restaurants to be found in and around Goolwa, enjoy the Sunday markets or simply put your feet up at Gool-a-watu, relax on the balcony and soak up the views right at your doorstep

All the photos featured for Gool-a-watu, except the photo of speedboats at the Saharas in the Coorong, were taken within a ten minute drive of the property.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptionally comfortable We enjoyed our stay at Goolawatu. It is comfortable with well designed space. We had an enjoyable weekend with all the family. The arrival welcome note, chocolates and wine were appreciated. Appreciated the good views, fresh air and sunny indoor-outdoor living. The location is central to many of Goolwa's attractions, although we didn't need to go far and wide to enjoy our stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful property.... Excellent position We had a wonderful Easter with all the family at Beautiful Gool-a-watu. We could not of wished for anything more..... The property catered for the whole family with a main bedroom and en suite for mum and dad and a separate self contained area for my daughters and son in laws plus a spacious living area and many balcony settings for all to be together for a meal or bbq or a few drinks to soak in the amazing scenery and serenity. The property owners were most welcoming with a card, wine and chocs on arrival. The whole family were impressed with the cleanliness of the property. All our needs and more were catered for and we would all love to visit again. Highly recommend Gool-a-watu to anyone looking for affordable 5 star accommodation. *****

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent stay We were a group of 4 couples and the layout of this house was perfect for us. It was in a good position for the golfers and the surfers and swimmers. We took a bike and that was helpful for getting to the shops for quick trips.
