NOW AVAILABLE MARCH LONG WEEKEND - Due to cancellation.... Leave the stress behind, unwind and relax with a Murray River holiday This is a renovated, 3 bedroom family holiday home set back from the river affording greater peace and safety also having great views. 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 second bathroom - a modern "out house" with a separate toilet, shower room, laundry with a front load washing machine and ironing facilities. The bathroom inside the house has a shower, toilet and a bath. Outside there is a lawned area in front of the house, a veranda 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 and also Apple TV so you can connect to your Netflix Account. The combustion heater is stoked and ready to light for that warm cosy feeling wood supplied, ducted evaporative air-conditioning throughout and easy to care for polished concrete floors.

The house is set back just over 150m 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 quiet a few kangaroos, native birds and recently, the occasional echidna.

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. 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 but 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.
