Holiday home in Kenilworth on River
Elin Power / Astrid Kuenne
About Elin Power / Astrid Kuenne
We are a retired couple and first came to Kenilworth on a camping trip... and while buying a bottle of wine in the village saw this lovely property in the window of the local real estate agent. River Oaks was lovingly restored for the year of 2011... with Rick taking a year off work to manage and undertake the extensive renovations, and Elin travelling up from Brisbane after the children finished school on Fridays.
Elin Power / Astrid Kuenne purchased this House in 2011
Why Elin Power / Astrid Kuenne chose Kenilworth
The big attraction for us was the river frontage to the Mary River, the sweeping green lawns and the views to Kenilworth Bluff. And all of this is just a 4 minute drive from Kenilworth Village.
What makes this House unique
A comfortable home, designed and styled specifically for the holiday maker who seeks a green change with their family and friends - and all that a private access to the river offers. We offer a gourmet kitchen and entertainment areas, a fenced garden for pets and lots of open space for children and fur babies to play. There is also excellent fishing in the river... so bring your rods... but you may need to kiss and release your catch as several of the local species are protected.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Fabulous family getaway in the country.
We enjoyed 3 beautiful nights at River Oaks over the school holidays.
2 families stayed at the property and the house easily accommodated 8 of us.
The house had a lovely country cottage feel, tastefully decorated and the large kitchen was a bonus, well equipped with everything we needed.
2 bathrooms was also an added bonus and meant each family had their privacy.
We loved putting the indoor fire on each evening, not only for warmth but it also created such a great ambience inside, especially being Winter.
Mornings were spent on the back deck breathing in the beautiful country air and taking in the sweeping views.
It really is such a lovely spot.
The kids LOVED the cubby house and also toasting marshmallows on the outdoor camp fire each night. We even made damper!!
The property backs onto the Mary River which the kids enjoyed exploring, although a bit too cold for swimming at this time of year.
The property caretakers ensured that we had everything we needed and also gave us tips on where to go and what to see.
Our stay at River Oaks is something I know the kids will talk about for years to come.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful property with us.
We will definitely be back!!
