“My partner and I stayed at Neil's property and were amazed at the hospitality, generosity, and all round fantastic experience that was provided. We were able to fish from the jetty (with the addition of handy tips from Neil) and brought in some good catches. The fireplace was great to cook our dinner on, with a moonlit view of the river. Neil has thought of everything to make a stay at this property self sufficient, relaxing, and very enjoyable! The dogs are friendly and welcoming, and although Neil himself is respectful of privacy, it was great to enjoy his exceptional company on occasion. We would recommend this place to anyone looking for a much needed break or fishing adventure!”
TESTIMONIALS:- We had an amazing stay, it's a beautiful spot! (Amanda 1-5 July'17) Thank you very much it was an amazing experience the kids even caught a fish! (Leanne 5-9 July'17) The Boat House is ON the Burrum River....literally. This is a fisherman's paradise-fish from the large overhanging deck, moor your boat in front of the house, head out to the mouth of the Burrum River or cruise the river & fish to your hearts content. Beautifully furnished home to enjoy a tranquil getaway.
“Definitely a 5 star experience. Such a pristine and relaxing spot literally on the river. Gazing up at the Milky Way while dropping in a fishing line off the deck in the evening to hand feeding the Kookaburras and Bush Turkeys while dropping a line in the morning. The Boathouse has all the amenities you need for an easy and comfortable stay. Make sure you head into Howard for some warm and genuine hospitality. The Grand Hotel is a must and I highly recommend a visit to the local butcher and bakery. Truely a wonderful family getaway. Thank you to Tricia for sharing her beautiful place.”

The property is on the fresh water Burrum River which is great for swimming and canoeing. Canoe available.
“This is a very nice place to relax in the middle of the (bamboo-) forest. It is surrounded by plants, you can see many birds through the windows and a lot of cute tiny frogs came to say hello on the veranda. Coming there as a German from a big city, I was scared of some creepy crawlies first, but then spend all evening on the veranda, because it was so beautiful. And nothing attacked me ;-) Everything is very clean and they even had a high chair for our little one. It's a shame we didnt see the bamboo land, because it was pouring rain the whole time we stayed (only two nights unfortunately). But still, we had a very good time at the house and we can definitely recommend it!”
