Sandra was very friendly and obliging throughout the booking process and in the months leading up to the trip. No question was too much for her to deal with. Our boat was clean and comfortable, and everything except towels and food was provided that we...More

Hired a 45' houseboat for 6 days. Six on board and towed 5 kayaks. Our 3 bird spotters saw 91 species of bird. Dinner on the top deck at sunset was a daily highlight. Highly recommended. Just a month earlier I spent 10 days on...More

We're so happy that you had a great time. Your enthusiasm about the birdlife has sparked a new page on our website. The list contains over 100 birds now and some lovely photos. Looking forward to welcoming you onboard again.

We stayed on the boat for 2 nights and and 3 days. It started off with a very thorough briefing which taught us all the do's and don'ts of boating. The boat was well equipped and had no hassles. We enjoyed having the dingy paddling...More

We were two couples and we hired a 10 berth house boat. The houseboat was VERY clean, well maintained and more than you needed in the way of items provided on board. Chris and Sandra were very efficient and everything ran to plan. You can...More

We hired a 33 foot houseboat for 3 nights from Bulahdelah. Friendly staff and very thorough briefing and run through all the workings of the boat (~2hrs). Very cosy for 4 of us, would be quite a squeeze with 6 that it apparently does sleep....More

We are always working towards improving the boats and unfortunately, looking good on the outside, although it would be nice, is not a priority. On the 33ft houseboat, we have installed a power anchor winch, 12vt electric toilet and 12vt electric fridge in the past...More

We had fun, but to market these dated houseboats as luxury is misleading. The marina is a shambles & needs a major clean up. We arrived at the appointed time & after being ignored for some time, we began loading ourselves and our gear. The...More

When we bought the business, we were advised not to change the name as it was very well known. These boats are now over 25 years old and there are numerous up to date photos on the website. We are aren't hiding anything from you...More

This was one of the best holidays we have ever had. The Myall lakes were gorgon and Chris and Sandra who run the houseboats were excellent - really helpful. The setting was truly five star but unfortunately the houseboats themselves are not. Very cosy and...More

We are constantly working on these boats. All 5 houseboats had new carpet and vinyl Dec 2016 and new curtains either winter 2015 or 2016. I think the main reason for the bad smell was the old underfelt. The fuel-smell unfortunately, can't be helped too...More
