Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful secluded quiet spot A wonderful quiet spot. Great for skiers with a Jetty and sandy beach . Great for boat users. Owners lovely.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Living downstairs from Owners We assumed self contained didnt mean that owners lived on the second floor and overlooked us from their balcony. I wouldnt have booked here if I had known/realised that. Being woken up by the owner first thing in the morning wasnt ideal, nor was the nail gun being used upstairs most of the weekend. That being said, the accommodations are well appointed, and the location is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great weekend away We had a fantastic stay at washpool retreat.. we loved having the jetty to fish from and the kayak to use although we didn't have great weather we enjoyed the outdoor activities while we could but also cuddling up inside and watching the river go by when it was too cold out! The house had everything we needed and Lindy was very helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Location Plus Washpool is a comfortable distance away from Tailem Bend and the highway right on the bank of the Murray.
