Our River House, affectionately known as Marli ( Aboriginal for Black Swan) is situated on a quiet bend of the Carlton River, 15 mins walk from the beach, the water is crystal clear and both marine and bird life abound.
Absolute waterfront, absolute peace and quiet. You can relax in our quirky Boat shed, nap on the daybed or strike up a fire in the Mariners kettle to poach oysters, collected from the shore on the private beach, a step down from the jetty. If action is your style we have a purpose built volley ball / badminton court in the yard to keep you fit. The house is set up for relaxation with cosy nooks and a view from every room. Spending time @ The River House is sure to rejuvenate and inspire well being. Carlton River is a natural location, unspoilt with over development, this is the perfect possie for your friends and family. Sleeping 5, there is room for 2 couples or a family.

The River house is offered for Private guests and Domestic rental only. Private functions and parties are not permitted. The advertised tariff does not provide for the extra costs associated with functions such as cleaning, extra wear and tear, rubbish removal and utility costs. Failure to comply may result in termination of tenancy.
For each stay we request a $500 bond which is a security to ensure that should there be any damage, excessive wear and tear, extra cleaning, or excessive use of water, being that it is tank water only, there will be an appropriate extra charge.
The Tariff will be adjusted accordingly, if there are extra guests.
The bond amount is $500, which is payable by credit card only. This will be held in trust and will be refunded in full once the property has been checked and cleaned.
