Leave the stress behind, unwind and relax!

This is a recently renovated, 3 bedroom family holiday home, set back from the river on a 20 acre property with beautiful park like lawns and our own boat ramp onsite. Even a campfire pit and camp chairs are ready and waiting your arrival. There is also a higher lawn area which is ideal for games of cricket or footy too.

Go fishing from the dock or take off in your boat for some skiing, walking or just relax with a drink watching the magical sunsets at the river's edge watching the cliffs change to a magic gold! Bring a book or magazines or read ours. If you need to catch up with Social Media or work we have a NBN Internet connection which has just been fitted. All you need to bring is your towels and sheets, food, drink and clothes.

We are only 140km from Adelaide - travel on the Port River Express way and National Highway A20 - just over an hour and a half and you're here! The property is situated approximately 6 km north of Blanchetown in the McBean Pound area.

The house contains a huge lounge area with leather recliners, 65 inch TV with surround sound, a selection of DVDs, CDs and games - including 3D. The combustion heater is stoked and ready to light for that warm cozy feeling (wood supplied), ducted air-conditioning throughout and easy to care for polished concrete floors.

The front veranda facing the river and contains an outdoor table and chairs and stainless gas barbeque. The house is set back just over 100 m from the river which means it is away from the noise of boats etc. making a safer play area for smaller children. Walk down a short path to the park-like river front area or head in the other direction up the hill, past the newly established orchard and across the winter creek to take in the 360 degree views of the river, cliffs, gum trees and glimpses of kangaroos, native birds and the occasional echidnas.

Sleeps a maximum of 6 people - with room for a cot. (can be supplied on request)

The house is light and spacious with winding windows that capture the evening breezes. It has a newly, fully renovated kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, nespresso coffee machine, bread making machine, gas stove and electric oven. It also has a modern front load washing machine and ironing facilities. The bathroom has a shower and a bath. Outside there is a lawned area in front of the house, verandah with 6 burner, hooded BBQ, table chairs and swing seat.

There is an undercover parking area for 3 cars with room for more.

A pet may be negotiated with the owner - strict conditions apply - a form must be filled out at time of paying deposit. Please inform us if you wish to apply to have your pet stay.

There are many places to visit nearby within a comfortable 30 to 40 minute drive. Go to the pubs at Morgan, Waikerie or Swan Reach - or just into Blanchetown - less than 5 minutes away.

This is a lovely home away from home, a great place to unwind and relax. All the family will enjoy this home.

The three bedrooms consist of

1 king bed (plus room for a cot)

1 Queen bed (can accommodate 2 singles)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Purfect location for taking kids having plenty of space for them to run, explore and see plenty of wildlife. Very organized with everything ready to go (even the fire was ready to light) and everything you could need. A very comfortable stay

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic property we had three couples come and stay for a weekend at Roonka, and the place is fantastic. great location not far from adelaide, beautiful scenery, peace and quiet, and we were even greeted by the resident kangaroos when we arrived. you couldnt ask for a better house either. absolutely everything you could need, and plenty of room. sitting under the veranda for coffee in the morning and watching the river cant be beaten. i hope we get the chance to go back and visit again soon :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Holiday Place My family really enjoyed our stay the house was supplied with everything we needed and was very well setup a bonus was being able to pick fresh fruit from the orchard. The lawn area on the river front was ideal for playing cricket, having lunches and just relaxing. Fishing was also a highlight. There was plenty to entertain the family with lots of games, dvd's and music. Overall a great holiday experience
