My friend had booked the accommodation for our trip. This was our second stop. What a treat. Spacious, well appointed and sitting over the water. What more could we want? Fabulous! Right next door to a shop which sold the essentials. Great access to the ferry to Russell.

What a lovely spot. We had the pleasure of staying here in the lower apartment and could not be happier. The apartment being modern and very clean was very inviting. The picture perfect view was breath taking and very tranquil. Would go back in a heart beat!

Rented the lower floor of this 2 apartment holiday home - very well appointed with high quality kitchen and very well furnished. Location was unique - right next to a ferry that operated until 10:00pm each night and while noisy we found we got used to it very quickly. Deck was great - we fished with equipment provided and caught...

Our stay at the Boathouse was absolute heaven. Although it's located right next to the ferry, we were never disturbed by noise or commotion. Our ground-level apartment was well-maintained and tastefully decorated, with everything anyone could need: a spacious living-dining area with flat-screen TV, fully-equipped gourmet kitchen, huge bathroom, and two bedrooms. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck, drinking...

From the moment we walked in we were blown away by the view and the quality of the apartment. High quality fixtures and fittings and hosts that make sure you have a great time. Even caught a few fish off the deck!!! Dont want to leave. Fantastic place.

We were part of a large group of friends who rented this property for 2 weeks. People came for 2 or 3 days to spend time with very special mates. It was fantastic! Although wet we found plenty to do within walking distance. The servicing of the Apartment was outstanding. It would suit from toddlers to elderly as long as...

We were very impressed with the quality and location of the Boathouse. We stayed in the upper level apartment, aptly named 'the Bridge'. We had wanted to book the apartment on the ground floor known as 'the Landing' (basically because of their photo of fishing over the side of the deck) but as it was already taken we booked the...

Stayed in 'The Landing' for 2 nights late October. This has got to be the best place we have ever stayed in and we have been fortunate enough to have stayed in many lovely places. It is incredibly spacious, from the massive bathroom to the kitchen, to the wrap around balcony and main bedroom. There are beautiful views from every...

“I recommend the top apartment. If we had stayed in the Landing apartment downstairs I think we would have been more aware of the ferry next door as it is almost at eye level with the front of that apartment, so I think privacy may be compromised.”
