Perfect Location/Perfect Stay

Pros: It was a beautiful studios apartment, on the water, with beautiful views.
Cons: Nil improvements; as the owners have thought of everything!
Location: Location was beautiful and quiet, but with all the amenities and only 5-8 minutes from town center.
Arrived and the owners were there to greet us. The property is on the water (not next too) and the scenery was beautiful. The property was super comfortable with all the necessities. The owners offered us their bicycles to use, gave us old bread for fishing and advising us where to go for the best eats. Would definitely return for a lovely restful time.

The Boat Haven Studios at Goolwa

Pros: We loved the lay out of the room . It was quite spacious and the decorations fitted in perfectly to the river boat theme. The bathroom was beautiful.
Cons: The only thing we had a small problem with was the shower but Martin soon fixed that when he switched over the gas bottle for the water heater.
Location: We had a delicious breakfast at a café near the river and had lunch at the Wharf. There was a children';s art display in the Art Gallery..
When we arrived at our studio apartment we were met by the owner Esther who showed us our room and took us in and showed us where everything was. The room was decorated beautifully with the room having a lovely theme associated with the river. In this unique setting we had black swans, pelicans and other birdlife coming right up to our room. Watching the boats up close in the marina was wonderful. We had the most relaxing peaceful and comfortable weekend. Our hosts Esther and Martin were very friendly and obliging.

A delightful surprise on the water.

Pros: Everything, it was for us a real find. Close to all amenities, a short walk to the warf, fantastic outlook, comfortable bed, your own electric BBQ,
Cons: Don't change a thing!
Location: Goolwa is an interesting place, nearby Port Elliott is alsoworth a visit. COORONG Cruise very worthwhile.the area is steeped in history.
We booked for 2 nights but extended it further! For a studio the Boathaven was surprisingly spacious with all you could need.Excellent quality decor with tasteful tones, very comfortable bed, quiet environment with a private deck overlooking the water. Martin & Esther have created a perfect welcoming haven for a relaxing holiday. We will be back!

Loved it

My partner and I absolutely loved our getaway for two nights. Didn't want to leave. Perfectly situated and so peaceful and quiet. Easy to go into town for a look around also. We can't wait to go back soon

Lovely studio room right on the marina

Pros: Everything!!! We had a wonderful relaxed weekend
Cons: could not fault anything
Location: Goolwa is very pretty. We did a 2 hour river cruise one day & rode the cockle train to Victor harbour the next.
Absolutely gorgeous studio room built over the water, just like being in a boat without the rocking!! Comfy bed, nice pillows, hot water!! Clean and tidy very comfortable. Great romantic getaway right amongst the boats. Own balcony & BBQ. Lovely hosts on site. Lovely views over the water; just beautiful to lie in bed at night with the moonlight reflecting off the river. Bikes & kayaks available for guest use
