Boat Haven provided us with a well equipped modern self catering studio/cabin which was ideal for a couple and daughter. Everything you need; kitchenette, dining area, nice bathroom, comfy bed. Tastefully furnished; easy parking. Close to Goolwa and regional attractions. Reasonably priced; recommended.

This well appointed studio apartment on the Murray River delta is a great place to stay. Wonderful wildlife and we could feed the birds and fish out of our window. Martin gave us use of his kayaks and bikes. It was an easy ride to Mother Duck for morning coffee and Whistlestop for dinner in the evening. Lots of things...

Classy, well appointed accommodation.It was fantastic to watch the Yatch race on Friday night whilst sitting in total comfort in the studio! Had some great meals at local restaurants, and so lovely to return to accommodation and be able to sit and enjoy the river. Esther and Martin are great hosts, very obliging, but not in any way intrusive. Well...

The room was spacious and well equipped. The view to the bridge was lovely and the swans that visited our window were amazing. Walking the trail along the river to the town centre is a must. Thanks Esther.

Great little spot for couples, very clean and comfortable. Spent two nights there and couldn't fault the accommodation. The cooking facilities are very limited, however, with the great local restaurants why would you want to cook anyway. Secure parking and within a kilometre or so to town centre this place is really lovely and quiet. Well worth a visit.

A nice quiet, clean place on the river (our room wasn't actually over it but others are). A B&B with no breakfast, but plenty of options in Goolwa (especially Motherduck!). No iron though. Would be a lovely place in better weather!
