Leave the stress behind, unwind and relax with a Murray River holiday This is a recently renovated, 3 bedroom family holiday home, set back from the river. 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, rotary clothes line 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. 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 evaporative air-conditioning throughout and easy to care for polished concrete floors.

The front veranda faces the river and contains an outdoor table and chairs and stainless gas barbeque. The house is set back just over 150 m from the river which means it is away from the noise of boats etc. making it 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 glimpse kangaroos, native birds and the occasional echidnas.

This is set on a 20 acre property with beautiful park like lawns near the river front and a boat ramp onsite. Two houseboats are moored on the bank still leaving plenty of room for your boat to the right of the ramp with its very own jetty to tie it up to. The very large area down by the river is a great place to set up a picnic and there is even a campfire pit and camp chairs with plenty of room for everyone. The higher lawn area is almost the size of a soccer field and is ideal for games of cricket or footy too. Just keep an eye on the one and only tree in the middle though, it does make a very good defender or cricket stumps and is a great place to rest in the shade.

IF you prefer, 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 magical 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.

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

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

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
